Japanese audio specialist Audio-Technica is celebrating its 60th anniversary with a series of new and exclusive products including the first wireless headphones to feature wooden shells: Audio-Technica ATH-WB2022.
Offered in a limited edition, the headphones dramatically enhance the audio experience with shells crafted from an interlocking assembly of solid curly maple, walnut and mahogany woods that have excellent acoustic properties and absorb vibrations to deliver superior, immersive sound.
The world’s first headphones with a fully balanced audio output system, separating the left and right channels, the Audio-Technica ATH-WB2022 is also equipped with two ESS DAC ES9038Q2M digital-to-analog converters (Lch/Rch), capable of delivering truly high-resolution sound.
Featuring a new 45mm HD transducer, the ATH-WB2022 supports LDAC, AAC and SBC codecs, as well as high-resolution (24-bit/96kHz) sound sources via a wireless or USB connection.
Other technical features include 9 hours of listening time on a single charge, multipoint pairing to stay connected to two Bluetooth devices simultaneously, additional controls (adjusting and saving equalization in the headset, selecting one of four optimized volume levels, changing codecs, etc.) via the Audio-Technica Connect app, and increased comfort with Alcantara leather ear pads and headband.
