Audio-Technica has introduced a new Import Series of headphones, comprised of 15 different models specifically designed for audiophiles, DJs or portable listening applications.
For the audiophile, Audio-Technica has developed a full-range of circumaural headphones consisting of three open-air and two closed-back models. These reference-quality headphones deliver natural high quality sound with deep resonating bass and vocal projection. Key features include large-aperture drivers, double air damping system, copper-clad aluminum wire (CCAW) voice coils, a self-adjusting 3D wing support housing, velvet or leather ear-fitting pads, high quality titanium alloy cable or OFC oxygen-free copper cable with a gold-plated stereo 1/8″ connector and 1/4″ adaptor. Audiophile models include the: ATH-AD700, ATH-AD500 and ATH-AD300 Open-Air Dynamic Headphones and ATH-A700 and ATH-A55 Closed-Back Dynamic Headphones.
Audio-Technica has three new Import Series professional monitor headphones specifically for the working DJ. Featuring a low-profile, closed-back dynamic (circumaural isolation) design for excellent isolation in loud listening environments, the new DJ headphones have the ability to handle extremely high SPLs, and employ large-aperture drivers, CCAW voice coils, rotating earpieces for easy one-ear monitoring, and OFC oxygen-free copper cable with gold-plated stereo 1/8″ connector and 1/4″ adaptor. The DJ ranges includes the: ATH-PRO700 SV, ATH-PRO5 V and ATH-PRO5 MS Professional Monitor Headphones.

All models are designed to work with today’s portable players and are perfect for people on the go.
