Singapore, 3 November 2016 — Audio-Technica has debut its new Sound Reality in-ear headphones consisting of five models with sophisticated audio technologies that deliver high-resolution sound with smartphone controller and microphone. The new Sound Reality ATH-CKR100iS, ATH-CKR90iS, ATH-CKR70iS, ATH-CKR50iS and ATH-CKR30iS bring more than 50 years of pro audio engineering expertise to consumers with a line-up of headphones that deliver the highest resolution audio sources, combined with a comfortable fit and contemporary design.

 

The new Sound Reality ATH-CKR100iS and ATH-CKR90iS incorporate a Push-Pull Driver System to deliver extraordinary clarity and accuracy, particularly in the midrange and treble, and performance rivalling that of larger headphones. This innovation is an exclusive Audio-Technica design that utilizes two drivers that face each other but are wired out of phase, so that harmonic distortion is reduced and response time is improved while power is doubled and output sensitivity is increased. The result is a spacious, expansive but detailed sound across a wide frequency range, suiting all styles of music. In addition, both ATH-CKR100iS and ATH-CKR90iS are outfitted with Audio-Technica’s new A2DC (Audio Designed Detachable Coaxial) connectors for optimum signal transfer with a high level of immunity from noise.

ATH-CKR100iS

The ATH-CKR100iS provides frequency response up to 45,000 Hz, allowing listeners to fully appreciate the newly defined high-resolution digital formats with better than CD quality audio source material. In addition to its use of the Push-Pull Driver System, the ATH-CKR100iS features metal-coated titanium housings for a rigidity that greatly reduces unwanted vibration. A stainless steel acoustic resistor improves high-frequency response, while a bass acoustic resistor provides accurate low-frequency response. And its star-quad cable eliminates noise and provides superior transfer of the audio signal.
