At CES 2013 Audio-Technica is introducing headphones in a broad range of categories including noise-cancelling, under-$20, fitness-oriented and more.

The new QuietPoint® active noise-cancelling models include the ATH-ANC29 over-ear and ATH-ANC33iS in-ear with smartphone answering, music playback and volume control capabilities. The ATH-ANC29 and ATH-ANC33iS offer up to 90% noise-cancellation (up to 87% for ATH-ANC29; up to 90% for ATH-ANC23iS) and work even if the batteries run out. The ATH-ANC33iS comes with Comply™ Foam Tips and silicone eartips in three sizes and its communications capabilities work with all smartphones. Both models join Audio-Technica’s QuietPoint ANC headphones lineup that includes the top-of-the-line ATH-ANC9, winner of an Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering award.

Audio-Technica’s three new SonicSport in-ear headphones are designed for stay-in-place fit while jogging, sports and active use. All have an IPX5-certified waterproof rating and are sweat-proof and washable. The ATH-CP700 model has an in-line volume and music playback functions for compatible Apple® devices, and features a headband that wraps around the back of the head. It also has a flexible pivot ear-fit design that directs clear audio and impactful bass toward the ear canal, while allowing awareness of outside sounds. The ATH-CKP500 headphones feature secure-hold C-tip earpieces that nestle in the outer ear, while the ATH-CKP200 has a hinged ear hook that adjusts around the ears. The ATH-CKP500 and ATH-CKP200 are available in a variety of colors and have SX/S/M/L choice of sound isolating eartips, and ridged eartips to allow a low amount of ambient sound for great safety outdoors.

The new Core Bass ATH-COR150 and Clear ATH-CLR100 in-ear headphones bring superior sound quality to extremely attractive price points at US$19.95 and US$14.95 SRP respectively. The ATH-COR150 features snap-on/snap-off oval ear hangers and the ATH-CLR100 is an in-ear canal-style. Both come in a variety of vibrant colors with a cord wrap that encloses the headphones for carrying convenience.

Audio-Technica is exhibiting Jan. 8-11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall Lower Level, Booth #21138 during CES 2013 in Las Vegas, NV.
