Stow, OH 01-03-2017 – At CES 2017 Audio-Technica is debuted four SonicFuel headphones that combine outstanding value with simple yet sophisticated design and best-in-class sound quality. The new on-ear ATH-AR3BT wireless headphones with Bluetooth® technology, on-ear ATH-AR3iS, in-ear ATH-CKR50iS and in-ear ATH-CKR30iS incorporate newly developed technologies to offer improved sound and performance at their respective price points.
The SonicFuel ATH-AR3BT offers richly detailed sound in a compact foldable design and sets a new value standard for high-performance on-ear wireless headphones at US$119.00. It features a new dynamic driver with a powerful magnetic circuit to deliver impactful bass with extended frequency response. The ATH-AR3BT employs aptX® sound-improvement technology, specifically created to yield superior audio performance over Bluetooth transmission. In addition, the ATH-AR3BT has its electronics on a circuit board mounted on the driver’s flange (unlike many headphones with electronics mounted where they create unequal airflow), in order to facilitate even diaphragm movement.
Like all Audio-Technica headphones featuring Bluetooth wireless technology, the ATH-AR3BT remembers up to eight previously paired devices for ready pairing with the listener’s favorite audio sources, and includes a built-in mic and controller for answering calls and controlling volume and music playback. The ATH-AR3BT is rechargeable via its supplied USB cable and provides up to 30 hours of battery life with wireless use. It will be available in Spring 2017.
The ATH-AR3iS on-ear model (US $79.00, available Spring 2017) shares the same newly developed dynamic driver and powerful magnetic circuit used in the ATH-AR3BT to deliver impactful bass with extended frequency response. The compact, foldable ATH-AR3iS is available in black and white and is equipped with an in-line mic and controller for handling phone calls and music and video playback on compatible devices.
The SonicFuel ATH-CKR50iS in-ear headphones feature a redesigned, sleeker shape that fits unobtrusively into the ear. A newly developed 12.5 mm driver operates in conjunction with a machined brass stabilizer that reduces unwanted resonance and keeps the driver under precise control to deliver a wider, more immersive sound field with clear, well-balanced audio and powerful bass. The ATH-CKR50iS (US$49.00, available Spring 2017) has a remote control as well as an in-line mic and controls for answering/ending calls and controlling music and video playback, with the controls now more conveniently positioned for easier access.

Its cord-mounted mic and controls make using the ATH-CKR30iS with portable devices effortless. The ATH-CKR30iS (US$34.00) comes with XS, S, M and L-sized eartips and will be available in black and silver-white in Spring 2017.
