Audio-Technica to launch the new ultra-lightweight

Leeds 08-30-2007 Audio-Technica, the leading Japanese manufacturer of high-performance microphones, headphones, wireless systems, mixers and electronic products for the home and professionals, is using IFA, the world’s largest Consumer Electronics Show, as the European launch-pad for an exciting new range of ultra-lightweight headphones.

The ON3 model is an all new ultra stylish and seamless headband headphone, featuring a light weight body plus soft ear-pads for a long lasting, comfortable feel. The exceptionally thin headband extends and contracts and provides a snug, comfortable fit whilst being so light as to be almost un-noticeable in use. Then, when not in use, the driver housings swivel round to allow convenient easy “flat packing” of the headphones.

Despite weighing in at a mere 38 grammes nothing has been sacrificed in the way of performance. Full-sized 30mm driver elements with Neodymium magnets are used to give an output sound pressure level of 102dB/mW across the full frequency range of 12 Hz to 23.000 Hz; and all with the fullest fidelity to give crystal clear highs and a deep, punchy bass.

These new headphones are offered in a choice of five really cool colours; Sheer Black, Ceramic White, Soft Lime Green, Urban Brown and Atlantic Grey and all featuring a 1.2 metre cable terminated in a gold-plated stereo mini-plug.

These new headphones really offer something special in the way of performance, style and exclusivity for those who want their music on the move; genuinely a one-of-a-kind portable headphone.

They can be found on the Audio-Technica stand in Hall 1.2, The Home Entertainment Hall, Stand No: 111 at IFA, at Messe Berlin, 31 August to 5 September 2007.
