Thanks to our friends from Audio-Technica for giving us a brand new ATH-CK313i Inner Ear Headphones for review.

The headphone is compatible with phone calls and control on iPod/iPhone/iPad. Surprisingly, the buds of this headphone somehow looks like Apple Earpod. It’s good to note though that Audio-Technica launched launch this first that the Apple Earpod.

Features include:

  • New design fits the natural curve of the ear for extra comfort
  • 8.8 mm drivers offer high-quality ultra-clear sound
  • Control ‘play’, ‘pause’, ‘forward’, ‘fast rewind’ and ‘volume’ for music and video.
  • Condenser microphone for phone calls on iPhone or voice memo on iPod.

Audio-technica optimally made this headphone for voice call but – as expected from AT – it also boasts clarity and energy-inducing bass if you’re a music aficionado.

The ATH-CK313i is compatible to iPod Touch (4th/3rd/2nd generation), iPod classic (2009), iPod nano (6th/5th/4th generation), iPod shuffle (4th/3rd generation), iPhone 4s/4/3GS and iPad (1st/2nd/3rd generation).

Audio-Technica did not give us yet the selling price of this headphone but we believe that this shouldn’t go beyond PhP1,800. One thing is for sure though – this is definitely worth your penny.
