Audio-Technica is pumping out two new pairs of headphones that should accommodate just about anyone’s personal (and portable) needs.

The ATH-CK400i is designed for use with the iPhone, iPad and iPod. Of course, you can use them with any product with a headphone jack. However, if you have one of those devices, this in-ear model has integrated controls for your favorite Apple product. Priced at $59.95, the ATH-CK400i allows listeners to answer calls and control music, right from the cord.

Available in six colors (blue, red, black/green, pink, black and white), the ATH-CK400i has 8.8 mm drivers and comes packing XS, S, M and L-sized ear tips for a comfortable, personalized fit.

If you have a smartphone that supports Bluetooth, you can opt for the ATH-BT03 (pictured). Like the ATH-CK400i, the ATH-BT03 does work with all of your portables. However, it adds in something special for those compatible smartphones. It also has the ability to answer phone calls over the headphones, as well as integrated device control for music playback functions including play, pause, fast forward, rewind and more.

Priced at $79.95, the ATH-BT03 supports Bluetooth Advanced Audio Distribution (A2DP), Headset (HSP), Hands-Free (HFP) and Audio/Video Remote Control (AVRCP) profiles. It comes in black/red or white, with a USB charging cable and XS, S, M and L size earpieces.

Both the ATH-CK400i and ATH-BT03 are currently available at authorized retailers and online sellers, as well as on Audio-Technica’s website.
