    The ATH-SR6BTBK Wireless Over-Ear Headphones let you enjoy amazing, high-fidelity audio whether you choose to listen over a traditional wired connected or via Bluetooth® wireless technology. The headphones are compatible with Qualcomm aptX, AAC and SBC codecs, and connect easily with smartphones, tablets, music players, and other devices. Adding devices in the headphones' memory is made even easier with NFC (Near Field Communication) functionality, which enables touch pairing and connection with any compatible device.

    The ATH-SR6BTBK features powerful 45 mm drivers that are capable of reproducing Hi-Res Audio (5–40,000 Hz frequency response) when used with the included 1.2 m (3.9') cable. The cable is equipped with mic and controls so it can also be used to operate devices in areas where Bluetooth wireless technology is prohibited or when headphone battery power is low. For wireless use, the headphones have a mic and volume/control switch built into the left earcup, making it easy to answer calls, adjust volume and handle music and video playback (play, pause, fast-forward, reverse, next/previous track).

    The ATH-SR6BTBK's comfortable over-ear design provides excellent sound isolation for the best listening experience in both wireless and wired modes. When travelling, the earcups fold in on the headband for a space-saving fit in the included carrying pouch.

    The headphones' internal lithium polymer battery provides approximately 30 hours of continuous use (1,000 hours in standby mode) and can be recharged using the included 1.0 m (3.3') USB charging cable.


    About High-Resolution Audio
    In Brief: The Move to Hi-Res Audio
    While many listeners may believe that high-resolution audio came along with the introduction of the Compact Disc in 1982, constraints on the disc's storage space always prevented CD audio (standardized at 44.1 kHz/16-bit) from fully and completely reproducing the original recorded sound. The advent and subsequent popularity of MP3s only made this problem more pronounced – the necessary compression of these files causes audio information to be lost, thus greatly reducing the audio quality. But with lossless audio file formats, faster Internet speeds, and storage space increasingly easy to come by (and in ever-smaller packages), the push is on to create audio equipment capable of capturing and reproducing true Hi-Res Audio, generally considered to be 96 kHz/24-bit or better. The Hi-Res Audio logo certifies that a product meets the Hi-Res Audio standards. Per these standards, headphones must have transducer frequency performance to at least 40 kHz. As a producer of these types of audiophile headphones since 1972, Audio-Technica is well-positioned to provide audio solutions that meet the demands of Hi-Res Audio media formats, allowing for the full reproduction of their extended sonic characteristics.

    This is the best wireless headphones you can buy under $300.

    This is the best wireless headphone you can get for under $300. They are very comfortable, have excellent sound quality and they are so darn good looking. It is one refined product. Even the packing is impressive. I like how they fold up and I appreciate it came with a elegant storage bag. Very high quality at a very good price.

    Ex. San Jose CA. lol

    true

    Amazing set of headphones.

    I've been using m50x for a long time since no other brands could satisfy me with the clarity of the sounds; I mostly listen to hard rock/heavy metal/AoR/Some 80s 90s Europos and audio clarity is the highest priority for me. Any artificial bass or saturation over the file is a complete no no and this one delivers the crystal clear sound as the file delivers. I mostly use this with my phone LG V20 which delivers the HiFi through it's' quad DAC so I am able to get the full range of the sound over the wire and no single drop upto 10m wtih 320kbps vbr at 16bit files over BT. Controlling is super easy, no rocket science, to the point button arrangements; on/off switch, volume slider which is track changer as well and push to play/pause... Love the simplicity. Comfortable cushioned headband supported by the metal bracket, no wobbly parts or hinges and well finished. It does not leak the sound as well and isolate most of the noise from the outside. ATH SR6BT, for this price range, is definitely the best of it's kind. Bottom line: If you are punk/hip hop/millenial pop lover then ATHs are NOT for you because AT does not twist the sound by adding bass or cutting down the mid and/or high end of frequencies. If you love to listen to your tracks as it is with clarity, don't look otherwise, JUST GET IT...

    It's mostly good

    They sound amazing for anything with acoustic guitars. But feels lacking in any genre that has a lot of bass.

    Not a good headphone set for different music genres

    These headphones do not have a full sounding sound. Bass is missing, mids and highs can become overwhelming. Bluetooth volume gets about half as high as it does using the wired connection. I would not recommend these to anyone that listens to hip hop, they sound good listening to rock/metal.

  • Q & A

    How do you control the volume on SR6BT headphones

    Nancy

    There is no volume attenuator (analog or digital) on the ATH-SR6BT headphones and you may adjust the volume on your source device. If neither has them in a wired connection, you may use an inline volume attenuator.

    My newly bought ATH-SR6BT does not entering pairing mode. When I turn it on the small indicator light always blink just blue, instead of blue-red!!

    I have these headphones. I used to be able to listen to my audiobooks while walking using Bluetooth, but now the volume is no longer loud enough. I even have the volume all the way up on my iPhone 8. It is very soft even indoors. What happened and is this a known problem that can be remedied? I

    Are there XL replacement ear pads for your ATH-SR6BT headphones?

    Bart

    Thank you for your inquiry. We do not manufacture other ear pads for this headphone.

    Are these headphones compatible with iPhone

    Anto

    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, they are.

    AudioSolutionsManager

    Whenever I use the wire instead of Bluetooth, I get a mono signal. I have tried it in my laptop, and my mp3 player with the same results.

    Matt

    Thank you for your inquiry. The headphone using a wired connection should be stereo. Please check our connections, make sure the recording is stereo and that your playback device is configured as stereo.

    AudioSolutionsManager

    Can the headphones play both wired and bluetooth audio at the same time? Like if I wanted to play a game on my computer connected with bluetooth and listen to music on my turntable with a wired connection?

    Nick

    No.
