The Audio Technica ATH-TWX7 earbuds are a midrange priced, closed-enclosure option designed for a variety of uses with a very good overall sound quality. They offer wireless connectivity with LDAC lossless codec and an AAC codec, alongside a low latency mode which is great for watching videos or gaming. They feature active noise cancelling, making them suitable for noisy environments and air travel. The earbuds are also sweatproof certified, which means they can be safely used during exercise. The build is durable and includes very good built-in controls. Comfort is rated well, and they come with an app that allows for equalizer and audio control customization, optimized for both Android and Apple devices. Their battery life lasts for around 6.5 hours, and they come with a case that provides an additional 20 hours of charge, though they do not support wireless charging. The moderate weight and size of the earbuds imply reasonable portability, and they're equipped with a very good mic, ideal for calls and meetings. However, they do not feature a detachable cable or virtual surround sound. Give Feedback

Billy Steele | January 2024
"There’s plenty to like about the ATH-TWX7. A robust set of features brings a lot of convenience to your day. But a few of those tools could still use some fine-tuning and the lack of automatic pausing in 2024 is a head scratcher. Still, the audio is mostly good, and transparency mode is better than most. Add in the solid call quality and the in-app voice test and the ATH-TWX7 are a worthy consideration, especially at this price. Too bad it falls short of being a more complete package some of the competition offers for a slightly larger investment."
