<![CDATA[ATH-WS660BT]]>Tue, 28 Aug 2018 21:06:41 GMThttp://electrickeyrecords.com/blog/ath-ws660bt
At $149.99 The WS660BT can handle anything you throw at them.  Want deep rich sound? Bluetooth or wired connectivity? built in microphone and volume controls? and over 40 hours of use per charge.  These headphones do it all.  Come in and pick yours up at Electric Key Records or order them here.

Audio-Technica ATH-WS660BT


The ATH-WS660BT wireless over-ear headphones combine exclusive 53 mm Deep Motion Drivers with Bluetooth technology to produce clear, full-range wireless audio with invigorating bass. The sound is further enhanced by the exclusive dual-layer, memory-foam earpads, comprised of a firm internal layer and a soft outer layer, that provide excellent sound isolation and comfort. 

ATH-WS660BT headphones also give you convenient access to your connected devices with a mic and controls built into the earcup for handling calls, controlling music and video playback, and adjusting volume. In addition, the headphones come with an optional 1.2 m (3. 9') cable, allowing you to use the headphones in areas where wireless operation is prohibited (e.g., in airplanes or hospitals) or when battery power is low. The internal lithium polymer battery provides 40 hours of continuous use (up to 1,000 hours in standby mode) and can be recharged using the included 30 cm (1.0') USB charging cable. 

Available in Black/Red

ATH-CK200BT Wireless In-ear Headphones with In-line Mic & Control (Black)


The ATH-CK200BT in-ear headphones give you excellent wireless audio at a great price. The powerful 9 mm drivers deliver clear, vibrant audio from a Bluetooth® wireless signal, while the compact housings and interchangeable eartips (XS, S, M, L) provide good sound isolation and a comfortable, customizable fit. 

The headphones feature an in-line mic and controls, allowing you to answer calls, adjust volume and control music playback on compatible smartphones and other devices. The ATH-CK200BT’s design conveniently situates the mic and controls for easy access and places the battery case on the upper back where, if desired, it can be attached to your shirt collar with the included clip. The internal battery powers the headphones for up to 7 hours (200 hours standby) and can be recharged with the included 30 cm (1') USB charging cable. 



The ATH-SPORT50BT wireless in-ear headphones pair great sound with great fit and freedom of movement to fuel your workout wherever it takes you. The comfortable ear-hook design keeps the headphones securely in place so the powerful 9 mm drivers can deliver all the crystal-clear audio received through the Bluetooth wireless signal. And with a mic and controls conveniently built into the left housing, it’s easy to handle calls and control your music on the run. 

The fit and sound characteristics can be adjusted further through the interchange of two types of included eartips: standard silicone eartips (XS/S/M/L) that provide outstanding sound isolation and ridged eartips (S/M/L) that allow some ambient noise to seep in for safer use outdoors. The internal lithium polymer rechargeable battery delivers six hours of continuous use and recharges easily with the included 30 cm (1') USB charging cable. The headphones are also IPX5 Waterproof Certified*, so you can wash them off when your workout is through. 

*IEC rating “IPX5” (“Washable”). The headphone may be washed using running water (not completely waterproof).

<![CDATA[We Have a Location!!!]]>Tue, 10 Jul 2018 14:30:40 GMThttp://electrickeyrecords.com/blog/we-have-a-locationWe are excited to announce that EKR has found a space for Franklin's new Record shop. Everything has been falling into place and to expand our already wide selection of used original releases we have our first accounts setup for new and re-release records. And to make things even better, we are going to be setup right in the heart of downtown Franklin at 1823 Bakehouse on Court St. So not only can you find your favorite records but you can enjoy everything the bakehouse has to offer while doing so. Stay tuned for an official opening day announcement!
<![CDATA[Looking for a location]]>Tue, 01 May 2018 14:28:32 GMThttp://electrickeyrecords.com/blog/looking-for-a-locationAs you all know Electric Key Records is looking to open our shop somewhere in the downtown Franklin area.  But where exactly is the big question.  Ideally it would be on Court Street in the old trophy shop location next to Benjamin's Coffee House.  That's Pick number one! There's a couple spots available in the Wigwam building just down from there on Jefferson St, but as with any retail spot would that be too far from public parking?  These are the questions we keep asking ourselves, and would like any feedback from everyone in town.  Is there any locations that we aren't aware of that you'd like to see the store occupy?  Thank you and we look forward to all the steps ahead of us in opening this long overdue shop.]]>
