Audio Technica

Audio-Technica is a company that is well known in production in the music industry and other places where there is need for audio equipment. Established in 1962, the company has since devoted their energies and focus to everything that has to do with audio equipment from the design, the manufacture, marketing and distribution; they cover the whole spectrum.

Over the years, Audio-Technica has established itself as a force to be reckoned with in several countries across the world. They have their headquarters in Tokyo, Japan. They have won several industry awards and have been providing the microphones for the Grammy Awards for the past ten years. They were also responsible for the microphone solutions at various sports broadcasts including the Word Cup, the Super Bowl, the Commonwealth Games and the past four Summer Games.

Even though Audio-Technica is known for their high quality and versatile microphone solutions, this is not the only product which benefits from their expertise. They are also known for their high quality headphones.

Audio-Technica headphones are known for their noise-cancelling technology. A good example is the ATH-ANC7B QuietPoint closed-back headphones which designed for use with MP3, CD, DVD and in-flight entertainment systems. They are also compatible with Apple products. They cancel background noise by up to as much as 90 percent and can be powered with just one AAA battery. What is unique about these headphones is not just their noise cancelling ability, but the deeper bass function including an extended treble and high fidelity.

Another feature of most Audio-Technica headphones is their portability. The ATH-EC700 GM headphones showcase that perfectly. They are not just terrifically lightweight; they are also designed to give high quality output. Unlike most lightweight headphones, the EC700 GM is quite durable and has a really stylish design. It fits easily and is not uncomfortable even when worn for a lengthy period of time. An added bonus is that it comes with a protective pouch for easy carrying.

The ATH-A700 are closed-back headphones which give a high sound quality with an acoustic performance which features a rich bass. This high quality sound output is typical of the majority of Audio-Technica headphones.

In their stable are also professional DJ headphones like the ATH-PRO5MK2 which incorporates Audio-Technica’s sophisticated driver technology. There is also the ATH-COM2 which is a headset that comes with two earphones and a microphone. It is also lightweight and has cushioned ear pads for maximum comfort. The ATH-COM2 did not get the usual rave reviews which almost all Audio-Technica products are known for, but it is still a really good product.

The headphones have received several positive reviews and industry awards. They are considered masterpieces by industry leaders and entertainment moguls. Audio-Technica’s wireless systems and conference systems have also been accorded the same regard and have the reputation for excellence and high performance.

Audio-Technica headphones are evenly priced although there are some that are rather on the high end. However, the general consensus seems to be that they are well priced for the type of sound and quality that they represent.
