Audio-Technica ATH-CKP200, CKP500, ATH-CP700 SonicSport Headphones


Audio-Technica today announced three SonicSport headphones, designed for jogging, sports and active use. The new models include the back cord-style ATH-CP700 with microphone and controls for iPhone, iPad and iPod, the C-tip-design ATH-CKP500, and the ear hook style ATH-CKP200. All models have an IPX5-certified waterproof rating and are sweat-proof and washable.

The ATH-CP700 features a headband that wraps around the back of the head to keep it in place and fit comfortably. Its new active-fit earphone design has a flexible pivot that provides comfortable in-ear positioning, and directs the sound toward the ear canal for maximum bass impact and clarity while allowing awareness of outside sounds. The ATH-CP700’s cord-mounted remote provides the ability to control volume and music playback functions on the fly, allowing easy access to controls on compatible Apple devices. The sensitive built-in microphone lets users answer calls or use voice-over controls on select Apple models. The ATH-CP700 has a single-sided cord and a cord clip for easier cord management and comes with a 2-foot (0.6 m) extension cord and handy carrying pouch.

Audio-Technica’s ATH-CKP500 active-fit in-ear headphones feature ergonomic C-tip earpieces that nestle naturally in the outer ear to hold the headphones securely in place. Their angled housings direct the cord behind the wearer’s neck so it stays out of the way. In addition to standard sound isolating eartips, the ATH-CKP500 comes with newly designed ridged eartips that allow the user to hear ambient noise like traffic or other runners for safer use outdoors. The headphones are available in black, red, white and blue, and come with a cord clip and 2-foot (0.6 m) extension cord.

The ATH-CKP200 in-ear headphones have a hinged ear hook that adjusts around the ears to provide custom comfort for any wearer. It 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-CKP200 headphones come with a cord clip and 2-foot (0.6 m) extension cord and are available in black, red, white, blue and multicolor. Like the ATH-CP700 and ATH-CKP500, the ATH-CKP200 features high-quality drivers and components for clear, detailed and dynamic sound.
