    Great headphones for the price


    I have had the ATH AX5is for a few days now, and i have to say i LOVE them they are a good looking, great sounding pair of headphones, and they are awesome for day to day activities. I do wish that there was more metal in the headphones even if it did add to the cost, and weight to the headphones i do think it would be a nice improvement. I would defiantly recommend them, especially if you are a person who uses headphones on there mobile device, and uses headphones for more than 8 hours a day.

  • Q & A

    Are they considered Bluetooth headphones? the wire has me doubting


    No, the ATH-AX5iS are not wireless headphones. You may find our wireless headphones here:


    What makes this a smartphone headset because I noticed that this model and the other model (not smartphone) have the same adapter. Thank you


    Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at for assistance with this.


    Does this headphone have a specific type of music it plays best with? I listen to alot of rock and heavy metal, would it be compatible and play just as good with sound quality as for other types of music?


    These headphones were not specifically designed for a certain genre of music, and should therefore work well with any genre. However, when it comes to audio, the "best" sound is usually a matter of preference. If you have any further questions, please contact the Audio-Technica United States (ATUS) Audio Solutions Team at: Thanks!


    How long is the cord for these headphones?


    Thank you for your inquiry. The cable is 1.2 m (3.9') in length.


    Will the audio work over internet I want a pair of headphones to not only listen to on an iphone and ipad, but to plug into a net book and use for online conferencing. Will theses headphones work on a pc and allow voice communications?


    Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at for assistance with this.


    Compatibility Do these headphones work with iPhone 6?


    Yes they do they should work with all apple, and android phones, tablets, and mp3 players


    Any Audio-Technica headphone with an "i" at the end of the title (such as the ATH-CKM300i) are made specifically for iPhone (MFi). If the Audio-Technica headphone has an "iS" at the end of the title (such as the ATH-AX5iS), it means that it is cross compatible with iPhone and Android smartphones. Therefore, the ATH-AX5iS will work with the iPhone 6. If you have any further questions or for any further correspondence, please contact the ATUS (Audio-Technica United States) Audio Solutions Team at, and include both your original question and this response. Thanks!


    Does it have noise cancelling? Just wondering


    No they do not. Following is a link to our Active Noise Cancelling models.


    Do these headphones Leak music? I want a pair of headphones that have good quality sound but also it won't be a bother to people around me


    There are many dependents upon which any headphones can leak sound. Some of which are how loud is your music, how loud are you listening to your music, how loud or quiet the ambient levels are around you are (i.e. loudness of your environment), and loudness at different frequency levels therein. What we can tell you is this; at what would generally be considered normal music listening levels (not too loud, not too quiet, somewhere in the middle), in a normal everyday semi-quiet environment, the headphones should not leak very much audio as to bother people around you. If you have any further questions or for any correspondence, please contact the Audio-Technica United States (ATUS) Audio Solutions Team and include your original question and this response, at: Thanks!


    Why is the US so slow to receive this new headphone? These headphones have been released in Europe for some time now.


    Thank you for your inquiry. The are shipping now.


    Are the red and blue on these headphones lights that light up that logo? Because that would be awesome! I can't wait to get my hands on these. Also can I like preorder these headphones? Or are they out?


    Thank you for your inquiry. These do not light up, but I agree that would be cool. These are shipping now so take a look on the internet for who has them in stock.
