Audio-Technica Gifts for Grads

For the Gamer

The gaming experience just isn’t complete without great sound, and our new top-of-the-line ATH-AG1X (1) closed-back and ATH-ADG1X (2) open-back headphones deliver an immersive environment that makes gamers feel like they’re in the middle of the action.

These headsets feature newly designed 53 mm large-diameter drivers, and an improved 3D Wing Support System for even greater comfort – perfect for marathon sessions. Both models blur the line between audiophile and gaming headsets, providing exceptional dynamics, and precise localization of dialogue, special effects and music. Each includes a built-in microphone that is excellent at rejecting unwanted ambient noise and comes with a windscreen to combat wind and breath noise.

For the Audiophile

Our SonicPro® headphones are specially designed for music lovers who are passionate about sound quality. The new Hi-Res Audio ATH-MSR7NC (3) features noise-cancelling and venting technologies that allow listeners to block out the world around them and enjoy the music. These smartphone-compatible headphones come equipped with in-line mic and controls, perfect for answering calls on the go.

The portable, lightweight ATH-SR5BT (4) on-ear headphones with Bluetooth® wireless technology feature powerful, specially designed 45 mm drivers that deliver exceptional resolution and clarity (Hi-Res Audio when used with the included detachable cable). The smartphone-compatible ATH-SR5BT remembers the last eight wireless devices for quick pairing with multiple audio sources. The headphones’ soft memory foam earpads and easily adjustable headband slider offer remarkable comfort.

For the Vinyl Lover

It’s the biggest comeback story in years: the resurgence of vinyl records. Whether you’re buying for a music major with a collection of classic albums or the grad getting into vinyl for the first time, our fully automatic AT-LP60-BT (5) wireless turntable makes listening to records easier than ever. Enjoy the sweet sounds of vinyl through compatible Bluetooth devices, including wireless speaker systems, sound bars and headphones.

Designed to fit any style, the AT-LP60-BT is available in black, white and navy finishes. Thanks to the turntable’s completely automatic operation listening to vinyl is a breeze – just push the play button and the turntable does the rest, placing the stylus down at the beginning of the record and lifting up and returning the arm when the side is over.

With these musical essentials your favorite grad will start the next chapter of their life with a killer soundtrack by their side!
