Audio-Technica Announces New Import Series Headphones: ATH-CK9, ATH-CK7, ATH-ES7 & ATH-W5000

Audio-Technica has expanded its Import Series headphones with four new models. Previously available only in Japan, the new models include: the ATH-CK9 QuietPoint Passive Noise-Reducing Earphones; the ATH-CK7 QuietPoint Passive Noise-Reducing Titanium Earphones; the ATH-ES7 Portable Headphones; and the audiophile ATH-W5000 Dynamic Headphones.


The ATH-CK9 QuietPoint Passive Noise-Reducing Earphones feature an in-ear design that forms an acoustic seal resulting in sound isolation that blocks background noise while preventing sound leakage. This produces increased fidelity at lower volume levels while quality balanced armature drivers offer detailed audio. The ATH-CK9’s reversible design allows the earphone to be worn with the 1.2 m “Y” cord extending either down or over the ear. Interchangeable ear-pieces (small, medium, large) are included for a custom, comfortable fit, while the gold-plated mini-plug provides exceptional corrosion resistance.

The ATH-CK7 QuietPoint Passive Noise-Reducing Titanium Earphones also employ an in-ear design for effective sound isolation and feature 11 mm drivers with neodymium magnet systems for high-fidelity listening with deep bass and extended treble, durable lightweight titanium construction and interchangeable ear pieces for a comfortable, custom fit. They also come with a 1.2 m “Y” cable with adjustable sleeve for secure fit and gold-plated mini-plug.


The ATH-ES7 Portable Headphones feature a stainless steel, ultra-sleek contemporary design with outstanding acoustic performance and reproduction of midrange and treble frequencies. Employing 42 mm drivers with neodymium magnet systems, copper-clad aluminum wire voice coils, and a flexible T.P.E. headband for a secure, comfortable fit, the ATH-ES7 headphones also have padded ear cushions for long-wearing comfort and maximum isolation. The headphones fold for easy storage while traveling in the protective carrying pouch and come with a 1.2 m “Y” cable and gold-plated mini-plug.

For the audiophile, Audio-Technica has expanded its offerings of full-range circumaural headphones with the new ATH-W5000 Dynamic Headphones. These reference headphones deliver natural high quality sound with deep resonating bass and vocal projection. Key features include large-aperture 53 mm drivers with neodymium magnet systems, double air damping system, 8N-OFC oxygen-free copper voice coils, a lightweight magnesium alloy frame with a self-adjusting 3D wing support housing, leather ear-fitting pads, high quality elastomer-sheathed cable and gold-plated stereo 1/4″ connector.

The four new Import Series headphones are available now: ATH-CK9 (Black/White) QuietPoint Passive Noise-Reducing Earphones retail for $299.00; ATH-CK7 (Black/White) QuietPoint Passive Noise-Reducing Titanium Earphones retail for $169.00; ATH-ES7 (Black/White) Portable Headphones cost $249.00; and, I hope you’re sitting down, the ATH-W5000 Dynamic Headphones will deplete your bank account $1,699.
