All Aboard the Lennon Bus: NAMM 2015

The John Lennon BusLast week at NAMM 2015, we had the opportunity to hook up with one of our favorite organizations, The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus.

The Lennon Bus travels around the United States educating students and audio enthusiasts by way of a state-of-the-art mobile recording facility. The bus is committed to providing students with customized studio sessions that teach them to write, record and produce music. The portable studio is equipped with all of the latest audio technology, including Audio-Technica pro microphones and headphones.

One of the Lennon Bus highlights from NAMM was a very special guest appearance by the legendary George Clinton. George hopped aboard the Lennon Bus to give a professional musician’s perspective on the audio world. The Lennon Bus also hosted “The Imagine Party,” an epic event celebrating music education that was capped off with a performance by George and Parliament Funkadelic.

If you are lucky enough to catch The Lennon Bus this year, we encourage you to pose for a photo with the larger than life Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones. Hundreds of A-T fans lined up at NAMM 2015 for a photo with our iconic #BigM50!

Find Your Fit with SonicSport® Sports Headphones

It’s that time of the year again when we make endless promises to ourselves to hit the gym hard and get fit for the New Year. And while our resolve might be enough to see us through those first few workouts in the days or weeks after the holidays, we at Audio-Technica know that maintaining fitness routines can quickly become a chore.

So what’s left to keep us motivated? Music! That’s why we were driven to create sports headphones that deliver both high-quality sound and a high-quality fit.

Our SonicSport®  headphones are engineered to stay securely in place while delivering you the boost of musical energy you need to push yourself to the next level. With flexible design options to help you find your individual fit, IPX5 waterproof certification to let you wash the headphones after use, and several interchangeable sizes of both standard (sound isolating) and ridged (ambient noise) eartips, these are true athletic headphones, designed to keep you in the zone no matter where your workouts take you.

To help celebrate this especially festive time of year, we held a holiday giveaway featuring Santa’s #ATWishList.

We racked our brains trying to come up with the A-T products all of you would want to win. But then we thought, Why not just let you choose?! So, for a week we crowdsourced your wishes to help us complete Santa’s final #ATWishList. At the end of the week, one lucky winner was able to pick the gift from the list they wanted Santa to send them.

Summer is over; school is in session and the days are getting shorter. It’s safe to say that fall is upon us. This season, we want to know if you’re ready for a new start!

Whether you’re cleaning up and rearranging your workspace at the office or setting up your new dorm room at school, it’s time for a fresh start. Whatever it may be, we want to see a photo of your new, ‘refreshed’ space.
