Audio equipment maker Audio-Technica has introduced seven in-ear and over-ear headphones to its popular “Solid Bass” range in the local market.
The new range of products features the Deep Motion High-Res Audio Drivers and Dual Phase Push-Pull Drivers for an enhanced audio experience.
Bass heads who love music with heart-thumping power and punch can now listen to hard rock, hip-hop, metal, electronica and other bass-driven music the way it is meant to be heard, at affordable price points and in absolute comfort.
The high-resolution audio is a first for Solid Bass. Although the Solid bass line-up focuses on bass, Audio-Technica has still managed to maintain the low-, mid-, and high-frequency components of music without overpowering each other.
?Audio-Technica?s Solid Bass family has a well-earned reputation for faithfully reproducing impactful bass sound. The new models we?re launching in Southeast Asia continue this tradition while bringing the best balance of price and performance with unparalleled user experience,? said Vincent Chan, managing director for Audio-Technica in Southeast Asia.
?The new Solid Bass headphones range stretches across in-ear to over-ear models. We have a model that?s ideal for our consumers, wherever and however they want to experience their music.?
All seven headphones are designed to produce musical compositions with a well-rounded presence and outstanding bass reproduction.
The ATH-CKS1100iS uses two facing 12.5mm, Dual Phase Push-Pull drivers which improves response with outstanding linearity resulting in enhanced acoustic reproduction, delivering expressive sound with reduced distortion over a wide range of frequencies.
The CKS1100iS comes with high-resolution audio, which is a first for Solid Bass. With the Dual Airflow Bass Venting System, it provides precise control of diaphragm movement for high-resolution audio.
To improve high-frequency characteristics, the CKS1100iS has DLC (diamond-like carbon) with high hardness close to diamond in front of the diaphragm.
The addition of machined aluminum housings reduces unwanted vibration from driver movement for extended mid-high frequency reproduction. The exclusive A2DC-type (Audio Designed Detachable Coaxial) detachable 1.2m cable increases the resistance and maintenance of the noise.
CKS990iS, CKS770iS, and CKS550iS
Engineered specially for a deep sounding bass that does not compromise on the mid and high frequency contents, the CKS990iS, CKS770iS, and CKS550iS in-ear headphones are designed with various features that allow users to experience unimaginably full and textured bass.
The Solid Bass In-Ear headphones feature Dual Magnetic-Field Drivers to bring powerful yet precise bass reproduction in all three models. The position of additional magnet in front of the driver brings?powerful yet precise bass reproduction.
Just like the CKS1100iS, CKS990iS features the Dual Airflow Bass Venting System for precise control of diaphragm movement for high-resolution audio. DLC coating is also featured in the CKS990iS to ensure good quality high frequency characteristics.
The CKS770iS and CKS550iS feature the Airflow-Bass Venting System which provides excellent air damping. Additionally, the CKS770iS comes with machined aluminum housings which contribute to extended mid-high frequency reproduction.
The ATH-WS1100iS Solid Bass Headphones uses large 53 mm Deep Motion Hi-Res Audio Drivers, designed exclusively with ultra-powerful magnetic circuit, dual aluminum housing and extra airflow-bass venting to optimize air damping for transparent and massive bass sound.
Like the CKS1100iS, WS1100iS comes with high-res audio which is a first for Solid Bass. It delivers more detailed sound through capturing the nuances of analogue music in higher-resolution formats, in the same way high-definition images reveal more details than their low-resolution counterparts.
The ATH-WS1100iS has dual-layer earpads to achieve increased isolation of the audio as comfort is a priority in keeping with today?s increasingly mobile consumers.
WS770iS and WS550iS
The two Solid Bass Over Ear headphones, ATH-WS770iS and ATH-WS550iS, feature the 53mm drivers which deliver impactful bass, along with smooth, accurate midrange and treble, for those who want to hear their music with power punch.
In addition, WS770iS has Dual-aluminium rigid enclosure design with aluminum stabilizer and anti-vibration design to produce precise mid-high frequency.
All Solid Bass models feature an in-line remote that provides the ability to control volume, play, pause, fast forward, and rewind music playback functions on compatible Apple and Android devices. The remote also allows users to answer calls over the headphones.
Specially designed to project a chic and sleek look, the new range of Audio-Technica Solid Bass headphones boasts the signature 3.5mm gold-plated stereo L-shaped mini-plug and comes in a range of attractive colors:
