STOW, OH, October 26, 2011 - Audio-Technica now offers its Bijoué ATH-CKF303 in-ear and ATH-FW33 on-ear headphones in its expanded FashionFidelity™ lineup. The Bijoué headphones have a distinctive faceted jewel-cut design that complements any style from elegant to outrageous, and come in a variety of vibrant colors.


"Our FashionFidelity headphones bring an element of glamour and fun to music listening, along with long-wearing comfort and clear, high-quality sound," noted Crystal Griffith, Audio-Technica Consumer Marketing Manager.

The Bijoué ATH-CKF303 (SRP: $29.95) is ultra small and lightweight, and available in a bold color palette including Black Diamond, Chocolate Mint, Milky Pink, Pop Pink, Shiny Purple and White Crystal. The ATH-CKF303 delivers clear, natural sound, thanks to its precision 8.8 mm drivers, and it comes with XS, S and M-sized ear tips and a color-coordinated cable wrap holder - this is one fashion accessory that always fits perfectly.

Fashion-forward flair meets outstanding sound in the Bijoué ATH-FW33 (SRP: $39.95). The glossy jewel-cut ear pieces stand out, as does the audio quality, thanks to newly developed 30 mm drivers that deliver immersive sound.

The ATH-FW33 comes in Black, Brown, Pink, Light Pink and White, and has an ultra-thin headband and generously cushioned ear pads. Its foldable design makes it easy to carry anywhere. Like all Audio-Technica FashionFidelity headphones, the ATH-FW33 is compatible with the Apple® iPod®, iPhone™ and iPad®, and ideal for use with portable music players, laptops, in-flight entertainment systems and other devices.
