Give Mom the Gift of Music this Mother’s Day with Audio-Technica’s SonicSport, SonicFuel and Noise-Cancelling Headphones

STOW, OH, March 23, 2015 – At Audio-Technica, we know that moms lead busier lives than ever. This Mother’s Day, why not give them a gift that lets them unwind with their favorite music wherever they go – or when they just want to stay at home and relax? Audio-Technica’s SonicSport fitness-oriented headphones, SonicFuel in-ear and QuietPoint noise-cancelling headphones offer performance, style and value that’ll be appreciated by moms this Mother’s Day – and year-round.

When you get mom a gift, you should make sure it fits – and the SonicSport ATH-SPORT1iS in-ear headphones are designed to fit perfectly and stay in place even during active exercising. They work with smartphones, so moms can answer calls and control music playback thanks to the headphone’s in-line microphone and remote.

Available in black, red, pink and navy/yellow, the ATH-SPORT1iS (SRP: US$39.95) features a hinged ear hook that pivots to provide an adjustable fit around the ears for secure, long-lasting comfort. High-quality 8.5 mm drivers deliver clear, natural sound, and the headphones come with both standard silicone eartips (XS/S/M/L) for sound isolation and ridged eartips (S/M/L) that allow the user to hear ambient noise like traffic or other runners for safer use outdoors. The headphones feature a 3.9-foot asymmetrical cable design that keeps the cord out of the way, with a clip to fasten the cable to clothing during active use. Also available are the SonicSport ATH-SPORT1, ATH-SPORT2 and ATH-SPORT3 headphones, featuring ergonomic comfort-fit designs at suggested retail prices ranging from US$34.95 to US$59.95.

The SonicFuel ATH-CKX5iS in-ear headphones (SRP: US$49.95) combine total comfort with outstanding sound quality and smartphone compatibility. They feature Audio-Technica’s exclusive 360-degree rotating eartips that adjust to the angles of the listener’s ear canals, helping to create a comfortable, perfect seal for maximum bass impact and sound isolation. In addition, the ATH-CKX5iS comes with four sizes of eartips (XS/S/M/L) and three sizes of ergonomic C-tip earpieces (S/M/L) that nestle in the ear for a stay-in-place fit.

The ATH-CKX5iS’ powerful compact drivers deliver outstanding sound quality with impactful bass, while the in-line mic and controls provide on-the-go use of compatible smartphones and other devices. The ATH-CKX5iS is available in black, white, red, blue and green and comes with a carrying pouch.

What mom wouldn’t like a little peace and quiet sometimes (OK, most of the time)? Audio-Technica’s QuietPoint® ATH-ANC33iS active noise-cancelling (ANC) in-ear headphones provide up to 90% noise-cancellation to let moms enjoy their favorite music without the intrusions of the outside world, and especially when traveling on airplanes, trains, subways or buses. The ATH-ANC33iS (SRP: US$79.95) is smartphone-compatible and comes with Comply TM Foam Tips for unmatched comfort. The Comply eartips are made out of special memory foam that expands to fit comfortably in the ear canal for superior sound isolation that enhances the audio experience. The headphones also come with standard silicone eartips in S, M and L, a soft carrying case, an airline adapter and one AAA battery.
