Stow, OH 01-07-2014 At CES 2014 Audio-Technica is expanding its SonicSport fitness-oriented headphones line with the introduction of its ATH-CKP200iS ear hook style headphones with mic, volume and control functionality. The ATH-CKP200iS’s cord-mounted remote provides the ability to control volume and music playback functions on the fly, allowing easy access to controls on compatible smartphones, iPhone®, portable music players, iPad®, iPod® and other devices. The sensitive built-in microphone lets users answer calls with ease.

Like all Audio-Technica SonicSport models, the ATH-CKP200iS has an IPX5-certified waterproof rating and is sweat-proof and washable. It features a hinged ear hook that adjusts around the ears to provide custom comfort for any wearer. The ATH-CKP200iS comes with both standard silicone and ridged XS/S/M and L eartips to provide a choice of greater sound isolation or allowing in a low amount of ambient sound for greater safety outdoors.

The ATH-CKP200iS is supplied with a cord clip and 2-foot (0.6 m) extension cord, and is available in black, red, yellow and blue. It features high-quality drivers and components for clear, detailed and dynamic sound.

The Audio-Technica SonicSport ATH-CKP200iS in-ear communications headphones have a suggested U.S. retail price of $44.95 and join the currently available SonicSport models including the C-tip-design ATH-CKP500 (SRP: US$59.95), and the ear hook style ATH-CKP200 (SRP: US$39.95) which offers all the features of the ATH-CKP200iS without the communications functions.
