It’s not the first time we’ve seen this kind of thing: LG Bacteria killing cases Bundled with their Tone earbuds since 2020 – and I really enjoyed the company’s latest headphones T90 Buds, but that has nothing to do with deadly bacteria and everything to do with the wild, tracked-headed Dolby Atmos.
but that s The first time Audio-Technica treated true wireless headphones in this way.
Now, I’ll be the first to sit back and take notice since the company’s opening stab at the true wireless market, ATH-SQ1TW It was honestly excellent for the nominal application fee and some of the Best budget wireless headphones I’ve heard before, but do our earbuds really need a 70-second “sanitizing process” every time we put them back in the case?
And what does he do? Audio-Technica explains that there is a “unique deep UV sterilization system inside the charging case,” and that every time your earbuds are put back on it “initiates a 70-second sterilization process that kills bacteria and viruses from the surface. The mirrors are used Also to distribute the light evenly for increased efficacy.”
Well, anyone else?
Opinion: Regardless of self-cleaning, I will continue to buy Audio-Technica earbuds
Don’t get me wrong: on vocal merit alone cool coza Audio-Technica deserves your attention. The Japanese company has been in this game for 60 years and they know a thing or two about the sound quality. Also (and in case I haven’t emphasized that enough already), the company’s ATH-SQ1TW earphones are really see and Good for sound quality on the level.
However, whether or not this UV cleaning technique is worth the extra expense is up for debate… for some, it would be nice to know that they are putting something clean in their ear canals. To others, it will appear as a feature they never asked for – or wanted.
Otherwise, eat ATH-TWX9 With “Advanced Noise Canceling Technology” plus three audio modes, support for Sony’s 360 Reality Audio, and 5.8mm high-resolution drivers. And since she’s talking about Audio-Technica (and this is the first time the company has added active noise or spatial audio solutions to its earbuds output), we’re a bit more intrigued.
Elsewhere, the claim is up to six hours of continuous playback from the headphones and up to 18.5 hours of extended use with the charging case, plus an equivalent IPX4 splash-resistance rating — which is good, but not excellent. For reference, the AirPods Pro 2 It boasts a total playing time of 24 hours, as well as excellent status Honor Earbuds 3 Pro.
And the prices are a bit high in my humble opinion, because the Audio-Technica ATH-TWX9 will be available for purchase from November 9, 2022 at sound technology (Opens in a new tab)And the Priced at £279.99 (about $325 or AU$496).
Yes, the discerning will note that the latest Audio-Technica earbuds are more expensive than the newer AirPods’ $249 / £249 / AU$399 order fee. But it does seem to come with 12 (yes, 12) different ear tip sizes and styles.
