Audio-Technica Style headphones include the on-ear ATH-FW3 Button (SRP: $49.95), in-ear ATH-CKF500 Key (SRP: $34.95) and in-ear ATH-CKF300 Bloom (SRP: $29.95).

Crystal Griffith, Audio-Technica Consumer Marketing Manager noted: “Our new Style headphones bring glamour, fashion and fun to music listening – along with outstanding sound quality, comfort and value.”

The sleek, elegant ATH-FW3 Button on-ear headphones are lightweight and comfortable, with an ultra-thin headband and generously cushioned ear pads that swivel for a perfect fit. Available in white, black, metallic brown and pink with woven “X” detailing on the ear pieces, the Button features newly designed advanced-technology 30 mm speaker drivers to deliver superb sound. The headphones fold flat for easy portability and come with a fabric carrying pouch with a signature “button and floral” graphic.

The ATH-CKF500 Key is wearable audio jewelry, with a distinctive key-shaped cord wrap and rhinestone slider, metal earpiece accents and elegant calligraphy with rhinestones on the ends of the earpieces. These in-ear headphones are available in pink/gold, black, brown, white, ivory, light pink, pink and turquoise blue. The Key delivers expansive sound that belies its compact design, thanks to its 8.8mm drivers that provide high-performance audio reproduction. The Key comes with three interchangeable soft eartips in XS, S and M sizes.

The ATH-CKF300 Bloom is available in a variety of vibrant colors and floral carrying case designs. Small, lightweight and styled for a comfortable fit, the Bloom is available in pink, light pink, dark pink, gold, lime green, purple, mint green and white, with matching carrying cases with a flowers in bloom motif. The ATH-CKF300 features 8.8 mm drivers for clear, dynamic sound, and comes with XS, S and M ear tips.
