Audio-Technica’s new ATH-CKS50TW earbuds are released in the UK and EU with the price £149.99.
This brand has been a game-changer while coming up with top-notch studio monitoring headphones.
And now their latest wireless earbuds stand out by claiming to have an outstanding battery life, up to 20 hours of playback, and 15 hours while using the buds’ ANC (active noise canceling) feature.
The brand says by using the charging case, these earbuds’ battery life can be reached up to 50 hours.
Although these earbuds are not certainly cheap, other earbuds with this price range fall short of ATH-CKS50TW’s estimated battery life.
The earbuds have microphones on the outside to detect and cancel out the background noise.
They also have a quick hear-through feature, which lets people hear the music and conversation of the surrounding people at once by lowering the volume of music and enhancing the external noises.
These new earbuds support Sony’s 360 Reality Audio, a spatial audio technology that provides an engaging listening experience by positioning sound sources in a virtual sphere around users.
Also, there is a built-in low latency mode that can reduce the delay time for the audio to reach ears. Hence, these wireless earbuds can be a perfect choice for gaming.
Users can turn on/off the low latency mode from the brand’s connect app.
Some other notable characteristics include 9mm drivers, an IPX4 rating for water resistance, multipoint Bluetooth connection, secure fit for intensive workouts, and quick charging option.
