Audio Technica Unveils In-Ear Bluetooth, Budget Earphones



Boy, those blue-shirted Apple employees must be going nuts just trying to keep up with all the different in-ear headphones out there. Still, can’t hurt to have a few more at the party — especially if they’re from a manufactrer with a rep for awesome bang-for-buck.

The ATH-BT03 (pictured above) is going to grab all the attention. It’s an $80 wireless Bluetooth headset that does the whole phone and music thing and looks wicked small.

Audio Technica’s other anouncement yesterday, the less flashy ATH-CK400i (jeez, their marketers must have attended the same fun product-naming class the marketing peeps at Sony did) is simply an in-ear set with an inline controls and a mic — but it’s priced at a measly $60.

    Hmm… I’d probably pass on these because it’s technically still wired IMO. Because where am I going to put the other end of these headphones? Maybe the same pocket as my iPhone.

    I might be a little too skeptical here..

    Skeptical? no. I don’t think so. How hard can it be to develop truly in-ear bluetooth headphones? I want to the cord cut.

    Apple employees don’t actually have to know about every pair of headphones on that wall. They just have to know how to read the box..

    Well, I don’t know what you mean there, but I was thinking of something like the Jaybird JF3 or Motorla S305
