Audio-Technica $99 True Wireless Earbuds Boasts Amazing Sound

Time for some new earbuds I think … 

Audio-Technica is no stranger to the true wireless game, and at IFA this week, the company debuted two new models. For me, the $99 ATH-CK3TW is the more compelling of the two, mostly because it’s great to see one of the audio giants introduce a set that won’t break the bank. Audio-Technica’s other new model, the ATH-CKS5TW, is also affordable at $149. However, I was most curious to see what the company could accomplish for under $100. As it turns out, the ATH-CK3TW is a really great-sounding pair that I can’t wait to spend more time with.

I immediately noticed the small size of the ATH-CK3TW buds themselves. These things are pretty tiny, which means the included charging case is also quite compact. Even with the smaller size, Audio-Technica didn’t leave out on-board controls. There are touch options on each side that allow you control volume, skip tracks and take calls. This model also gives you hands-free access to Google Assistant and Siri should you need to summon them. The ATH-CK3TW leverages Qualcomm’s True Wireless Stereo Plus for low latency to help improve the stability of that all-important Bluetooth connection.

Battery life is also very good at 15 hours. And with the charging case, you’ll get 30 more hours before you’ll need to search for a plug. There are physical buttons on the ATH-CKS5TW for controlling music, adjusting volume and taking calls. The company has also built the Audio-Technica Connect mobile app that will help you adjust settings and, perhaps more importantly, located a lost earbud. The ATH-CKS5TW is set to go on sale this month, so if you can’t wait for the $99 model, at least you’ll have an option from the same company.
