All new for the holiday season, the Audio-Technica Bijoué ATH-CKF303 in-ear and ATH-FW33 on-ear headphones have a distinctive faceted jewel-cut design that complements any wardrobe from elegant to outrageous.

The Bijoué ATH-CKF303 is available in a bold color palette including Black Diamond, Chocolate Mint, Milky Pink, Pop Pink, Shiny Purple and White Crystal. It delivers clear, transparent sound, thanks to its 8.8 mm drivers that provide high-performance audio reproduction.

Fashion-forward flair meets outstanding sound in the Bijoué ATH-FW33. The glossy jewel-cut ear pieces stand out, as does the audio quality, thanks to newly developed 30 mm drivers that deliver detailed, 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 the ATH-FW33 easy to carry anywhere.
