On February 15, Audio-Technica launched the ATH-CKS50TW true wireless earphones. The earphone supports ANC and has a long battery life of 20 hours (with ANC turned off). Even with ANC turned on, it can support 15 hours of music playback time. If used with the charging case, it can provide a total of 50 hours of battery life.
The battery life of Audio-Technica ATH-CKS50TW is several times longer than that of mainstream wireless earphone products on the market. For comparison, Beats Fit Pro can support 6 hours of noise cancellation music playback, while Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro and Sony WF-1000XM4 can only last 5 hours of music playback when noise cancellation is turned on, and AirPods Pro 4.5 hours.
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS50T earbuds use a feed-forward ANC function, which detects and cancels sound through a microphone outside the earbud. When you need to hear the surrounding sound, turn on the transparency mode of the earbuds to hear the external sound. At this time, the volume is lowered synchronously.
The earbuds feature 9mm HD TWS drivers that support Sony’s 360° Reality Audio, creating an immersive listening experience by placing sound sources in a virtual sphere around you.
The official price of the Audio-Technica ATH-CKS50T is $199, and it is expected to go on sale in March.
