Audio Technica ATH-SR5 High-Resolution Audio Headphones Launched at Rs. 12,990

Audio Technica has launched the ATH-SR5 headphones in India at a price of Rs. 12,990. The new headphones are built to High-Resolution Audio standards and will be available in three colour options: black, white and navy/ brown.

The key feature of the new headphones is the fact that it packs in 45mm dynamic drivers, along with a frequency response ranging from 5-40,000Hz which helps it achieve the requirements for meeting the High-Resolution Audio standard. The over-ear headphones also feature a swivel design for easy storage and portability, along with memory foam ear pads for enhanced comfort.

The ATH-SR5 comes with a detachable 1.2 m smartphone cable with in-line mic and controls to make it possible to answer calls and handle playback (play, pause, fast-forward, reverse, next/ previous track) of music and video on compatible smartphones and other portable devices. The headphones also come with a carry pouch for storage.

The new headphones are priced a bit higher than one of Audio Technica’s most popular current models, the ATH-M50x. Another model from the company, the WS770iS is also priced around the Rs. 8,000 mark, while the more expensive ATH-MSR7 also sticks to a high-resolution audio centric sound signature. This new model will hope to sit somewhere between these headphones, offering a neutral sonic signature that aims to achieve a sound that is as close to the recording as possible. It’s also been designed with comfort in mind, with its over ear fit and soft ear pads.
