Audio Technica reveals tiny CK10 earphones

Audio Technica CK10

Audio Technica today provided a first look at its CK10 in-canal earbuds, an upgrade to the popular CK9. The new set both improves sound quality and fit at the same time thanks to miniaturization. Though each earbud has a dual armature that separates different sound ranges and improves the signal-to-noise ratio to 107dB, both have been reduced in size dramatically. The result is a casing even smaller than for the CK9 and an easier placement in most ears, the company says. A stainless steel shell both protects the buds against accidental crushes and gives the earbuds a refined look compared to the plastic of the CK9.

Releasing first in Audio Technica's home country of Japan, the CK10 should be available by December 14th at an estimated price equal to $324 bundled with a pouch and three different ear tip sizes for a snug fit. Audio Technica has not announced its foreign launch plans but typically releases its earbuds in North America. [via Impress]
