We knew starting out that we weren't going to be the biggest record store around. We also knew it was going to be a tough road for me and my wife. We have 3 young kids (one of which is 18 months old) and other work that actually pays the bills. But we love music and meeting other people that love being involved with music. So our goal is to put everything we are able to make, back into growing this business. So with that said, we would like to announce, we have new retail accounts set up with Mondo and Light In The Attic Records. It's companies like these that make record collecting exciting. Artful, unique releases that always fill out a record collection. We are taking baby steps, but man this is a really cool baby step.

<![CDATA[We have Record Store Day Status!]]>Fri, 01 Feb 2019 21:45:54 GMThttp://electrickeyrecords.com/blog/we-have-record-store-day-status
It's been a long few months.  It was also very difficult to watch the small business Saturday come and go without being involved, but we have finally been approved for Record Store Day releases.  Once the list of this year's releases is made available we'll be posting a preorder sheet for records our customers would like to see us order.  We can't make promises that we'll be able to get everything (there's a pretty high demand for small run releases) but we'll do everything we can to get them into our store.  Thank you all for waiting with us!

<![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

$149.99

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)

$49.99

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. 

ATH-SPORT50BTYL

$69.99

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).
