Audio Technica gets into the head

If it’s meant to get inside your head, Audio Technica probably has a set of earphones to deliver it.

The Bloom (CKF300) fashion line-up, sports a newly developed 9mm driver, girly pastel shades and handbag-proof floral design storage boxes for $40. The CKM55 feature a new body design that ensures a comfortable fit as well as a good seal on the ear canal to minimise ambient noise, according to Audio Technia. They have a 12.5 mm driver, 200 milliwatt power handling and come with three different sized earpieces for $90.

The CKS50 canal phones ($80) claim to magnify low frequencies by passing the earphone output through a sub-chamber then through a ‘canon’, which Audio Technica describes as “a kind of acoustic horn”. The $80 WM55 over-ear headphones provide deep cushioned pads, 30mm drivers, a retractable 1.2 metre cord and interchangeable coloured discs for changing the look of the ear covers to suit your mood, T-shirt or backpack.
