Audio Technica ATH CLR100 Review

The Audio Technica ATH CLR100 is a cool headphone, at least for the buyer that’s on a budget. I have used one of these, and I think you should get eyes on some of its strengths, weaknesses, and you may then conclude if this is something you would be interested in getting.

Features of Audio Technica ATH CLR100

The Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100 possesses a crystal clear and clean sound; we wouldn’t want to forget that it also offers a great sense of depth and detail. The device’s design helps to provide outstanding sound resolution without interference from external noise, which means it has the noise canceling technology fitted into it.

The headphone comes with a collapsible cord wrap for the 1.2m-long cord. The cord wrap makes it pretty easy to take your headphone around without having to untangle the cord at every point in time. Some have complained, though, that the quality of the cable isn’t all that great, so you may have to make use of the cord wrap often, since keeping it in bags or cases might quickly hurt the cable.

Getting the Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100 means you will be a recipient of the 12-month warranty users stand to enjoy, giving you a measure of confidence in the product you are buying.

If you are looking to get a headphone that comes with a microphone technology, then I think Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100 isn’t one you should pursue as it doesn’t come with this feature, so users may have to go through the process of pulling the headphone out of the Smartphone whenever they need to make or answer a call, and that’s a big downside of using this headphone.


The Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100 comes in eye-catchy designs and awesome colors. While the Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100 is primarily built to create and sustain the “super sound” illusion, its manufacturers also deemed it fit to offer them in various eye-pleasing colors for those who have a thing for the looks of a product.


The diameter of the headphone’s driver has been clocked at Ø8.5 mm; its frequency is clocked at 25,000Hz with a max power input of 20 mW. Its impedance is clocked at 160ohms, and that’s a real improvement from older versions, while its sensitivity is clocked at 103dB/mW.


Adding to the alluring colors of the Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100 and its excellent features is the process and manner of its operation. The Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100 has Magnet Material which basically centers on sound production by means of a neodymium magnet. The neodymium magnet (Checkout this article to know more about neodymium magnet) is a very strong commercial magnet. It is the most common material used in making headphone speakers.

The in-ear headphone doesn’t have the kind of sound quality that we find on over-ear headphones, and that is one of the things I really dislike about it; apart from that, I think it offers a level of clarity, especially when am in a busy place. Having it in my ears for long results in slight discomforts, but I don’t know if that’s the case generally.

The Audio Technica ATH CLR100 sports a diaphragm size, and I really appreciated it as it offers low bass production, high treble pitches, and that’s one awesome thing about this headphone, its efficiency is cool even though it’s a bit smaller than the average in-ear headphone.

This IEM is pretty light at 3.4 grams, which is one reason I used it for long. The light weight is really great since the headphone was designed to be your traveling companion.

Our Review Ratings of Audio-Technica ATH CLR100 

Elaboration of the review points

Taking a quick rating of the Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100 from its design to its sound, build, and price, the outcome is as stated below;

  1. Design – The design has been appealing enough to users, so we can award the Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100 a 4/5 rating.
  2. Sound – The sound did not do any less than the design, as it offers users such listening pleasure that has earned it a 4.5/5 rating.
  3. Build – When it got to the Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100’s durability, I honestly think it’s fair to give it a 4/5 rating, perhaps because of its lightness. But just as I stated earlier, that has nothing to do with its quality.
  4. Price – The best of them all is its affordability. Going by the services the Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100 renders, it has managed to earn a 4/5 price rating.
  5. Reliability – Due to the Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100’s light nature and giveaway price, it is expected to meet a quick end not long after purchase. It then becomes a baffling surprise when it ends up lasting longer than anticipated. So a 5/5 rating was unreservedly awarded for its reliability.


In conclusion, the Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100 is a nice headphone to pick up anytime given its acclaimed functions at the price it goes for. The earbuds sound fantastic, and the sound is rich enough to worth those few dollar notes.

The Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100 does not rob its users of their comfort as it is very comfortable to wear. Also, music is all about detail, and the Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100 adds more depth to songs with its awesome bass; but I am sure you know that wouldn’t be as great as costlier headphones. Many of our friends have compared headphones without considering the price. So basically, if you want a budget headphone that works fine, the Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100 would be a great bet.

Looking at all these details and info about the Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100, it can conveniently be declared unbeatable (for its price). But then, one can never tell without trying it out, so you should take advantage of every opportunity to get one.

We will appreciate it if you take the time to share any experience you may have had while using the headphone as that will help the friends get insight on some other things we may not have mentioned in this article.
