In IFA 2019, Audio-Technica brought two new products in one breath: Audio-Technica ATH-CKS5TW and TH-CKS3TW.

Audio-Technica ATH-CKS5TW and TH-CKS3TW

Audio-Technica ATH-CKS5TW vs TH-CKS3TW: Specs and features

The slightly higher positioning is the Audio-Technica ATH-CKS5TW, which is not actually a pure new product, because you were able to buy it locally in Japan last month and have only recently entered other overseas markets. Compared with last year's ATH-CKR7TW,ATH-CKS5TW, which mainly optimizes battery life and connection performance, the ATH-CKS5TW currently has 15 hours of headphone body life and an additional 30 hours of battery life replenishment, while supporting IPX2 spatter protection. Although it can not be used as a sports headset, but at least it is not a "hang at the sight of water" level.

The Audio-Technica ATH-CKS3TW, which has a slightly lower positioning than the ATH-CKS5TW, has shrunk in some ways, including the headphone body life reduced to six hours, and the additional power provided by the charging box is only 24 hours. Of course, in fact, this score is good enough in TWS headphones. At the same time, in terms of audio coding and decoding, ATH-CKS3TW, which supports aptX and SBC, is missing for AAC, and ATH-CKS5TW is all three (but if the front-end device supports aptX, then the lack of headphone support for AAC doesn't seem to matter.).

In terms of unit configuration, the ATH-CKS5TW carries a 10mm drive unit, while the ATH-CKS3TW uses a 5.8mm drive, so ATH-CKS5TW is clearly one end higher than ATH-CKS3TW in terms of sound quality. But what's surprising is that only the lower-positioning TH-CKS3TW adds the ability to call the phone's voice assistant, while the TH-CKS3TW is touch-based, while the ATH-CKS5TW uses physical keystrokes. It seems that ATH-CKS5TW is aimed at the more traditional sound quality party, while TH-CKS3TW may be more respected by young people.

Audio-Technica ATH-CKS5TW and TH-CKS3TW: Price and availability

The Audio-Technica will officially sell the ATH-CKS5TW, overseas this month for $149 (1061 yuan), and the lower-positioned TH-CKS3TW will hit the market early next year for $99. From the price point of view, the two products are not too high threshold, at the same time, the sound quality adjustment of the Audio-Technica is also very trustworthy, so the sound quality party can look forward to it.
