Audio-Technica Debuts the New ATH-SPORT90BT Bluetooth Earpiece

As a market leader in transducer technology for over 50 years, Audio-Technica has been continuously pushing the boundaries of product innovation and improvement. With the SPORT90BT, Audio-Technica has made the earpiece more ergonomic and practical for sports use.

New listening option gives you greater musical freedom during workouts

Quality music reproduction for athletes and all other active people. These Audio-Technica SonicSport®️ wireless headphones are perfect for workouts at the gym, park or anywhere else.

The ATH-SPORT90BT gives you a new way to listen to your music: workout without your smartphone by transferring audio files to the headphones’ 4 GB internal memory and using the built-in music player function. The superior, customizable fit of the silicone ear fins and ear tips lets you focus on what you want to achieve during your workout.

Music without smartphone, but with built-in music player

Store your favourite music files on the headphones’ 4 GB memory* and play them back with the built-in music player – no smartphone required! Free from the worry of dropping your smartphone and the annoyance of carrying its weight in your pocket, you can focus more on your exercise.

*The actual amount of memory available varies depending on conditions.

Find your fit for continuous comfort during warm-up, workout, and cool-down

  • Find your fit:

To ensure a secure fit in your ears, we have included 4 sizes of ear fins and another 4 sizes of eartips, since everyone’s ears are different. The soft, smooth silicone material holds the earbuds in your ears comfortably and securely. The ear fins provide excellent support during workouts without wrapping around the ears, so they won’t interfere with glasses or sunglasses.

  • Cable management:

You can adjust the length of the cable behind your neck by moving the cable slider*, so that the earbuds fit better and the cable does not swing.

*Cable slider can also be detached.


Sweat- and water proof construction

IPX5-rated* waterproof construction provides reliable performance during your hardest workouts and allows you to wash the sweat from the SPORT90BT when your workout is finished.

*JIS/IEC protection class, IPX5-compliant. Can be washed using running water. It is not completely waterproof.

Up to 8 hours* of play back with built-in music player, and 5 hours* of wireless playback with your Bluetooth device.

Ease of operation

  • In-line controller with microphone:
    Control music, calls and “hear-through” function with the in-line controller.
