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.
In Part 1, we told you how to install the headshell and counterweight, and how to balance the tone arm. Now it’s time to set the stylus tracking force. Setting the force properly will keep the stylus from skipping out of the record groove at especially dynamic musical passages (too little force) and prevent excessive wear to stylus and records (too much force).
The AT-LP120-USB Turntable is a professional direct-drive turntable with both analog and USB connection capability, so you can use it with all standard audio equipment or plug it directly into your computer. But make no mistake, this isn’t just a tool to transfer records to MP3s – it’s loaded with all the tools you’d expect from a professional turntable, including adjustable tone arm and pitch control, ½-inch Dual Magnet™ cartridge, three speeds (33/45/78), DJ functionality and more.
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.
With so many great suggestions it was hard to narrow down the list, but ultimately we ended up with the best #ATWishList ever!
Have you ever bought a pair of in-ear headphones and quickly regretted your purchase because the things kept falling out of your ears?
That all-too-common problem is why we worked to develop an adjustable fit that works for everyone. And you can find our solution on the SonicFuel™ ATH-CKX5iS in-ear headphones. These babies not only deliver the great, natural-sounding audio you’d expect from Audio-Technica, plus an easy-to-use in-line smartphone controller, but they also come with interchangeable eartips and C-tips that guarantee a custom, comfortable fit to keep the tunes flowing even during active use.
Zombies exist solely in the realm of fiction — or DO they? Audio-Technica thinks it better to be safe than sorry. Surviving in a zombie apocalypse relies on preparedness in every aspect of life — even microphone technique. In this spooky video, Audio-Technica teaches you “How to Mic a Zombie.” Sit back, enjoy, and remember to check under the bed, in the closets and behind the curtains.
As we started to plan our last few summer concerts and nights making s’mores over the fire, we had to catch our breath at the thought that summer will actually be over soon.
But fear not! You can return to school this September in style. There’s no better motivation to get back to your studies than having a new pair of headphones to continue to play your favorite summer jams.
Not sure what headphones will work best? No problem! From in-ear headphones for those on the move to award-winning noise-cancelling technology to drown out your roommate’s snoring, here’s our guide for picking your new headphones.
With summer in full swing, you may find yourself with more to do than you have time for. But that’s the beauty of summer!
Perhaps you’re the outdoorsy type, eager to hike your way across America in the heat of the summer sun. Maybe you prefer late night clubbing. Or maybe your dream summer will unfold in your own living room, as you climb the ranks in your favorite video game.
Whatever your dream summer looks like, Audio-Technica has the right headphones to make sure you’re always listening.
Consumer Electronics Week 2014 was hosted at the Metropolitan Pavilion and the Altman Building in New York City from June 23 – 27, and a vast array of tech leaders in the CE industry showcased their latest products.
Heavy-hitting legacy companies and startups alike came together to share the products that will push CE forward. Audio-Technica joined the conversation to show three of our SonicFuel™ models that are making it easier than ever to be “always listening.”
Here’s a shot of our own Jeff Simcox with Rick Albuck of Dealerscope Magazine, one of the producers of CE Week:
