  • Overview

    The newly developed 13 mm drivers allow the ATH-CKR5iS in-ear headphones to deliver powerful audio with astonishing depth and clarity. The performance is further enhanced by machined brass stabilizers that absorb unwanted vibration for crystal clear mid- and high- frequencies, and by four sizes of interchangeable eartips for a customized fit that seals in the sound. The integrated controller and microphone let you easily answer calls and control playback of music and video on compatible smartphones and other devices, including Android, iPhone, iPad and iPod. The ATH-CKR5iS in-ear headphones are available in black (ATH-CKR5iSBK), white (ATH-CKR5iSWH) and red (ATH-CKR5iSRD).

    Excellent headphone with bass unmatched in other IE


    I'd like to specifically thank audio technica for these. When I first put it in my ear I was amazed by the tight and accurate bass they deliver. I didn't even think that such bass is possible in in-ear headphones. I would rate it 10 out of 10 on in ear bass. They also surpass many headphones even other high end (like Etymotic and Senheiser) on the sound stage width. LIke with other headphones these ones have their unique sound signature, which makes it sound very different with different types of music. And to really appreciate it you do need to listen to different music. For electronic music they are just perfect. Same goes for jazz, pop and most of other styles. I was always saying that in order to really test the headphones you need to listen to heavy metal in them. Heavy meta/rockl is the most difficult music style to reproduce both in headphones and speakers. Guitars just won't sound good with any driver. Here I would suggest to AT to do just a bit more work. Just a bit more, not a lot though. Its really not easy to have the headphones produce accurate mids and detail with such powerful bass and AT here comes close to impossible. Having said all that I will say that Etymotic still sound better for heavy metal with more detail and better midrange. But Etymotic has very weak bass, terrible fit and comfort and a bit smaller soundstage. All combined I really love these, great job audio technica !

  • Q & A

    Dose the microphone work with the xbox one?


    We see no reason why the earphones and the inline microphone would not work as long as you use the Xbox one stereo headset adapter found at . The inline controller on the earphones will probably not be functional however.


    I'm looking for light and durable earphones for flights and light jogs. How sound isolating are these earphones?


    Thank you for your inquiry. Using the proper tip size will isolate a good deal of the outside noise. Please note this does not have active noise canceling circuitry.


    Will the mic and volume controls work with Google Nexus 5? It has stock android and play music(Google) app for music. Please let me know ASAP!


    Yes it will!


    The ATH-CKR5iS will work with the Google Nexus 5. The integrated controller and microphone let you easily answer calls and control playback of music and video on compatible smartphones and other devices, including Android, iPhone, iPad and iPod. If you have any further questions, please contact the Audio-Technica United States (ATUS) Audio Solutions Team at: Thanks!


    I am planning use it when I go for a jog would like to know if it is sweat proof in a sense. Thanks


    These earbuds are not. You are looking for our SPORT Series. You will be good with any of the following: ATH-SPORT1, ATH-SPORT2, ATH-SPORT3, ATH-SPORT4


    Will this work with all iOS and Android products?


    The control functionality will work for the stock Android phone and music applications. Using any third party application will depend on the same coding being built into the app. You may contact the specific app for further information.


    Does this headphone music control compatible with any android?


    The controls are compatible with the stock music and phone applications. Third party applications must have the same coding for their compatibility.


    Hi, I recently bought a ATH CKR5is headphones. I am using it with my itouch. But why is it that a slight movement and the music would stop on itself? Regards Melvin


    Thank you for your inquiry. Please call our Audio Solutions Department at 330-686-2600 ext. 5000. They can help you with this.


    Do these actually need 200mw of power input or only 20mw like the other ones that are advertised?


    Thank you for your inquiry. This spec is the maximum they can take not what they require.
