So, Audio Technica has just turned 60 and to celebrate its 60th anniversary; the team came out with a pair of unique TWS (True Wireless Stereo) buds. And if you are wondering what makes it unique, UV sterilization is the hint you have been looking for.
Ambience control (noise-cancelling and hear-through) can be employed for music playback and calls.
The ATH-TWX9 main selling point is that the charging case has the ability to carry out long deep-UV sterilization. This process takes 70 seconds and will activate every time you place the buds inside the case.
UV sterilization basically works by breaking down the structure of the DNA, proteins, RNA, and chemical bonds that are in the microorganism.
And after these are broken down, the microorganisms lose the ability to multiply. In simpler words, the UV cleaning process will keep your earbuds clean.
However, UV cleaning is not the only thing Audio Technica brings to the table with the ATH-TWX9. The buds feature an IPX4 rating, meaning they will be able to handle splashes without any issues.
Furthermore, Audio Technica has integrated a great noise-cancellation feature. Thanks to that, you will be able to take a deep dive into your favorite music. On the note of music, Audio Technica utilized high-performance drivers in the buds.
According to the brand, the buds will offer an impressively immersive and robust soundstage. The story is the same for call quality. You must not need to worry about battery life either.
Audio Technica packed a large-sized battery inside the buds and the charging case. In total, you will get 18.5 hours of playback time.
To add a cherry on top, the ATH-TWX9 comes with Bluetooth 5.2. So, connectivity range and stability will not be something of concern. Also, as they feature multipoint, you can keep the buds connected to different devices at the same time.
There is support for Google Assistant and Alexa, which will let you quickly control the playback. The buds even have a low latency mode. That will surely come in handy when you are playing competitive games.
In addition to that, the charger has Qi wireless charging support. And it also comes with an automatic power-on mode, which, combined with fast pairing, will let the buds connect with an audio source instantaneously.
The buds also have an automatic playing and pausing feature, voice guidance notifications, and a quick microphone mute function. Audio Technica basically did not hold back on any element for its 60th-anniversary special product.
Inside the box, you will have 12 different earbud sizes, allowing you to get the perfect fit on your ears. Also, as the buds come in a Japanese Black colorway, they will look great on your ears too!
