Audio-Technica Headphones Make Perfect Father's Day and Graduation Gifts

STOW, OH--(Marketwired - April 16, 2014) - Father's Day and graduations are coming up, and this year, Audio-Technica offers a variety of headphones that make perfect gifts. The company's SonicFuel® ATH-CKX5iS, SonicSport® ATH-CKP200iS and QuietPoint® ATH-ANC70 noise-cancelling headphones are smartphone-compatible, offer exceptional sound quality and comfort and are sure to be appreciated by the deserving dad or grad in the family.

The SonicFuel ATH-CKX5iS (SRP: US$49.95) in-ear headphones combine total comfort with outstanding sound quality and smartphone compatibility. It features Audio-Technica's exclusive 360-degree rotating eartips that adjust to the angles of the listener's ear canals, helping to create a comfortable, perfect seal for maximum bass impact and sound isolation. In addition, the ATH-CKX5iS comes with four sizes of eartips (XS, S, M and L) and three sizes of ergonomic C-tip earpieces that nestle in the ear for a stay-in-place fit.

The ATH-CKX5iS has a microphone and a cord-mounted remote that works with Apple® iPhone®, iPad®, iPod®, and other compatible smartphones and portable devices from companies like Samsung, HTC and more, enabling users to answer calls, control media and adjust volume. Its high-quality compact drivers deliver outstanding sound quality with impactful bass and isolation from outside noise. The ATH-CKX5iS is available in black, white, red, blue and green and comes with a carrying pouch. Also available are the SonicFuel ATH-CKX7iS (SRP: US$79.95) and ATH-CKX9iS (SRP: US$99.95), for a complete selection of colorful, comfortable, great-sounding in-ear headphones dads and grads will be sure to enjoy.

Audio-Technica's SonicSport ATH-CKP200iS ear hook-style in-ear headphones are perfect for active guys. The superior-sounding, smartphone-capable ATH-CKP200iS (SRP: $US44.95) has an IPX5-certified waterproof rating and is sweat-proof and washable. Its hinged ear hook adjusts around the ears for a perfect fit. Its handy, cord-mounted in-line remote control lets the wearer control music track selection and volume on the fly, without having to reach for their smartphone or portable music player.

Available in black, yellow, red and blue, the ATH-CKP200iS comes with both standard silicone and ridged XS/S/M and L eartips to provide a choice of greater sound isolation or allowing in a low amount of ambient sound for greater safety outdoors. The ATH-CKP200iS is supplied with a cord clip and 2-foot (0.6 m) extension cord.

Every guy needs a little peace and quiet sometimes, and the QuietPoint ATH-ANC70 provides up to 90% noise cancellation. It includes a mic and controller for answering calls and controlling music, completely integrated electronics with all functionality built into the earcup, and a comfort-fit design. Like the SonicFuel and SonicSport models mentioned, its controller enables the user to play or pause music, answer and end calls, and go to the next or previous track.

The ATH-ANC70 offers superior noise-cancellation performance and audio quality. The headphones' large 40 mm drivers deliver clear, detailed sound with impactful bass and precise imaging in an immersive sound field. The ATH-ANC70 (SRP: $US199.95) also works when the noise-cancelling function is turned off, and operates in passive mode without batteries. The detachable cord enables the ATH-ANC70 to be used as cordless noise-cancelling headphones. The ATH-ANC70 comes with a hard carrying case, a 1/4-inch adapter and airline adapter.
