It’s not easy getting noticed by consumers in the headphones market — especially when some of the biggest players in the CE industry are banding together with intentions to join and conquer. Despite this, retailers are still filling their shelves and peg boards with myriad models, and capturing the TWICE VIP Awards vote for headphones in the less-than $99 range is Audio-Technica’s SonicFuel ATH-CKX5iS.

Other features of the SonicFuel ATH-CKX5iS include 8mm drivers, in-line mic and remote, and an included carrying pouch. Five colors are available: black, blue, green, white and red.
