  • Overview

    With exclusive Solid Bass dual phase push-pull drivers (12.5 mm x 2), the ATH-CKS1100iS in-ear headphones give you premium sound reproduction with Hi-Res Audio and incredible bass. The specially designed drivers reduce intermodulation distortion for amazing wide-range audio reproduction, from deep, rich bass to crystal-clear high-frequency sounds. Audio-Technica’s new Dual Bass Venting System also contributes to the high-resolution audio reproduction by positioning two vents in each housing for optimal control of diaphragm movement. The housings themselves are constructed of machined aluminum to reduce unwanted resonance and extend mid-to-high frequency response.

    The detachable 1.2 m (3. 9') cable, with newly developed A2DC (Audio Designed Detachable Coaxial) connectors, is comprised of two separate star-quad cables, one dedicated to the left channel, the other to the right, which improves isolation from external noise and channel cross talk. The cable also includes an in-line mic and control that lets you answer calls and control music and video on your smartphone or other portable device. The ATH-CKS1100iS comes with four sizes of silicone eartips (XS/S/M/L) that fit onto the headphones’ two-position posts, supplying a custom fit with outstanding sound isolation. A convenient carrying case is also included.

      Best Uses

        Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1100iS Solid Bass® In-Ear Headphones with In-line Mic & Control:

        I bought these as well as the Bose Acoustic Noise Cancelling Earphones (for newest ones as of Nov. 2016), which by the way were $50 more than these, and although the Bose had the noise cancellation technology that these lacked, these go deeper into the ear and in effect cancels out more noise than the Bose when the Bose's noise cancellation is turned to off. HOWEVER, what truly surprised me is that, with or without the noise cancellation on, these really deliver solid bass like its naming conferred. And the clarity is very good, too. They honestly sound way better than the Bose I bought to compare. Overall, very satisfied!

        • Q:

          Is the microphone quality good enough to use on my PlayStation 4? As you may know about PS4 is that you can directly plug in headphones into the controller to use it as a mic (if it has one on it) and I know many headphones out there that have terrible mic quality over PlayStation network. Specifically iPhone headphones have this very annoying buzz or very high pitched tone that's constantly going off while the user speaks. So what I want to know is that if I were to buy these to use over PSN, would the mic quality be tolerable. You see the reason I'd like to know this rather then just going with a headset is because I find In-Ear Headphones more comfortable and useful. So again, if anyone has an answer, it'd be greatly appreciated. :) thank you for your time.

            Thank you for your inquiry. That is hard to say. The microphone is designed for telephone use and really for gaming.

        • Q:

          Most other headphone manufacturers specify with with smartphones their headphone remote controls are supposed to work and my understanding is no headphones work with both iPhone and Android at the same time. So with which smartphones will the remote controls of this model work?

            The cable included with the ATH-CKS1100iS includes an in-line mic and control that lets you answer calls and control music and video on an Android/iOS smartphone. The control allows you to play/pause music, or answer/hang-up a call.

        • Q:

          Is 50 ohms a typo? That's to high for most cell phones or portable devices to power. That would definitely require a separate amp?

          The Japan version has 12ohms and the ckr10 has 12ohms.

          Also, what does the IS at the end stand for?

            A:

            The "iS" means that there is an in-line microphone and controller. The specification listed by Audio-Technica United States is correct; we cannot account for specifications on an import version. 50 Ohm headphones will be fine to use with most current mobile phones and tablets, as the specified impedance would be within proper range. Any "iS" headphone may also be used with a mobile headphone amplifier (like the AT-PHA100), but might lose its in-line functions.
