  • Overview

    The epitome of a functional hybrid, our innovative ATH-CHX5 headphones were uniquely designed to nestle in the ear without actually entering your ear canal – making them the perfect choice for those who love the portability (but don’t love the feeling) of conventional in-ear headphones.

    Large 13.5 mm drivers provide clear sound and powerful bass, while a flat cord effectively eliminates tangles. The headphones come with S/M silicone ear tips and a soft carrying pouch for easy transportation. Available in black (ATH-CHX5BK), blue (ATH-CHX5BL), red (ATH-CHX5RD) and white (ATH-CHX5WH).

    Music is your energy for life – the fuel for your heart and soul. SonicFuel® headphones are made specifically for active, daily use, to power you forward by delivering extraordinary comfort, style and an immersive listening experience that never sounds artificial, processed or filtered. Just pure sonic goodness for the high-octane tempo of your life.

  • Q & A

    Dose these headphones have mic and volume control options in that?


    You may contact your local Audio-Technica offices for further assistance.


    For the past few months I've had a pair of ATH-CHX5 earbuds, and I must say they are some of the best sounding earbuds I have ever owned. Recently however I have been having a slight issue with my pair. I believe that the wire has slightly shaken itself out of the piece with the actual jack, and this has caused the left bud to stop working entirely, unless I manually hold the wire at a certain angle.

    Dose these headphones have mic and volume control options in that?


    No, the ATH-CHX5 do not have an inline microphone and volume control. The ATH-CHX5iS DO include an inline volume controller.


    Is the ear piece swivel for the sonicfuel? D


    Not on the CKX9 Series, no they do not swivel. The CKX7 and the CKX5 Series eartips do swivel however.
