Audio-Technica has released a new pair of true wireless earbuds called ATH-CKS50TW, which boasts an astonishing amount of battery life. The new buds come with active noise cancellation (ANC), IPX4 water resistance, large 9mm audio drivers, and are Sony 360 Reality Audio certified.
The company says that the earbuds can last up to 20 hours of continuous usage on a single charge with ANC turned off or 15 hours with ANC on. Combined with the charging case, users can get a total of 50 hours of playback, with an additional 90 minutes from just 10 minutes of charging.
The wireless earphones are equipped with a low-latency mode that should reduce the audio lag when watching movies or playing games. There’s also the “quick hear-through” feature that lowers the playback volume and enhances sounds from your surroundings, which sounds a lot like a transparency mode.
Moreover, the earbuds support Fast Pair, multipoint Bluetooth pairing, and have Qualcomm cVc 8.0 for noise cancellation during calls. Each side has a physical tactile button, with the right earbud controlling playback while the left earbud controls volume and cycles through noise-cancelling functions.
The Audio-Technica ATH-CKS50TW are now available in the UK and Europe for £149.99 (~RM854) and 169 Euros (~RM804) respectively, while they are also listed for 218 SGD (~RM680) in Singapore. The company has not announced pricing or availability for Malaysia.
