  • Overview

    Don’t sacrifice great sound when you hit the gym. Audio-Technica’s ATH-CKP500 active-fit in-ear headphones feature ergonomic C-shaped eartips that nestle naturally in the outer ear to hold the headphones securely in place. Their angled housings direct the cord behind the wearer’s neck so it stays out of the way. In addition to standard sound isolating eartips, the ATH-CKP500 comes with newly designed ridged eartips that allow the user to hear ambient noise like traffic or other runners for safer use outdoors. The headphones have IPX5 Waterproof Certification* that allows them to be washed after use. They are available in black, red, white and blue, and come with a cord clip and 2-ft. (0.6 m) extension cord.

    • Q:

      Length of cord to earbuds not equal??

      I bought a pair of ATH-CKP500RD and the right ear bud cord is a foot longer than the left ear bud cord and it puts disproportionate weight on my left ear. Is that a flaw or how they are made? Thanks.

        Thank your for your inquiry. As long as you MP3 player has a 3.5 mm headphone jack they should work.

        This can be a difficult question to answer, because every one has different sized ears. These headphones are designed to ergonomically fit in most adult-sized ears. If you believe your ears are of comparable size, then these earbuds should work for you!

        Thanks!

    • Q:

      New Version Soon?

      Hello, I had recently found out about these headphones while searching for sports earbuds. I really like the design, and would normally choose your headphones over others, but the lack of an in-line mic and remote make it a tough decision. I was just wondering if you're planning on releasing a version with a mic and remote, also maybe increasing their water resistance, as I'm still looking for headphones to swim with. Adding this would easily make these some of the best sports earbuds out there, that I wouldn't hesitate to buy.
