I bought these in order to try out a new pair of wireless earbuds. I thought audio technica would be a good brand to buy from, but ultimately the sound quality fell short for me. I put these up against the jabra elite 65t and those blew these out of the water in terms of clarity of sound. The ATH have a decent sound to them and they have the added bass boost which is a nice touch, but the Jabra''s made up for that in a overall cleaner and more crisp sound. I really love the battery life on the ATH headphones. They last forever!

One thing that bugged me about them is that while I had them turned on there was a noticeable high pitched humming noise which was more evident when they were not fully placed in my ears.. This is ultimately why I returned them. I just couldn''t handle the extra noise over the music. Though it wasn''t loud, it was bothersome for a $150 pair of headphones.

I give it three stars for great battery life, good functionality and decent sound. I take off a star for the humming noise, and the lack of comfort in your ears especially for extended wear.

These are my second pair of true wireless earbuds that I have owned, my first being the TOZO T10 which were an okay pair, but lacked plenty of functionality. All it did was play/pause music and answer/decline/end calls and I rarely used the latter, however I do have to say the sound quality on those buds were great. Now on to the CKS5TW, an all-new set of true wireless earbuds from Audio-Technica made for my hearing pleasure. I was expecting a sound that would blow my previous earbuds out of the water, but unfortunately I was completely underwhelmed by how low the volume was even with my phone set to max. That''s what I would have said if I had stayed oblivious to the fact that these buds have independent volume control. Due to the T10 and their lack of functionality, in this case volume control, I was accustomed to just throwing the T10 into my ears without a second thought which is exactly what I did with the CKS5TW, hence unaware of the volume on the buds themselves. So after trying out a few bass heavy songs with mediocre performance and tinkering with some setting on my phone, I resorted to the manual and found the solution to my problem (I should have done that first). With volume set to max on the buds and my phone set to a reasonable level, I repeated the same playlist and BOOM, there it was! The thumping booms and thuds that I had been craving for vibrated through my head from ear to ear, it was painfully brilliant. The experience I just had was what I was expecting straight out of the box, volume set to max and a bass-induced headache. Audio-Technica, a company known for its premium sound and products, has delivered once again. To think I was close to returning these because of something so trivial as low volume, I feel so stupid.

Now on the other hand, just like the T10, though honestly this might be a problem for almost all true wireless earbuds, you can hear a static sound most noticeable when the buds are on standby. Not a deal-breaker for me, though I can''t say the same for someone who can''t tolerate static-producing earbuds at a price range like this.

I have been searching for a while now and these are the ones. I will be an Audio Technica customer from here on out. I''ve tried Bose, I''ve tried Sennheiser, I even tried the Jabra 65t that someone else mentioned in these reviews. It pales in comparison. The 65t boasts 5 hours of battery life, but could not meet half of that requirement. These blow those out of the water in terms of battery life - I''m getting around 12-15 hours on a single charge. These also sound way better without the "thudding" when your walk or run with incredible bass and sound quality. I got the blue ones, I also think they''re super stylish.

Pros:
- Stays in ear pretty well.
- Bass is good, but probably not the best.
- Battery can easily last all day. Though I don''t know what it will be like in a few years.
- Controls are very good once the earbuds are connected to the phone.
- Range may not be the best, but it is pretty good.

Cons:
- Sound lacks clarity. This is perhaps subjective though.
- When no songs are played, a static noise is quite audible. Sometimes during a song you can hear ticking noise like a mechanical clock. The ticking noise also audible when nothing is played and at the same time as static noise.
- Weird connectivity bugs. Sometimes the headphones will indicate that bluetooth connected (literally play a voice recording stating that bluetooth is connected) but the sound output will go to the phone speaker instead.
- Not terribly comfortable.

Backstory: I have also have Audiotechnica ATH-M50X and those are great. I especially enjoy the clarity of sound, alhough there are probable better headphones than those. I wanted to get wireless earbuds to be a bit more flexible, for example when biking. Decided to go with Audiotechnica because I really like M50X. These are overall ok, but disappointing.

Use these every day. Picked for length of battery as well as the full specs on the Audio Technica site indicate these have a fuller range of sound.

They’re earbuds. You’re going to love these more than the Apple ones we all settle for but they sound better and the price is substantially similar to Apple air pods

Battery life holds what’s more than a normal full working day for me and I normally only have to plug the charger case in once a week.

Comfort: good. Occasionally they’ll start to feel loose in my head though when I’m more active

Phone: honestly haven’t tried to use them on a phone call and don’t intend to

Con: the left one periodically turns itself off when I’m listening to music and that’s just annoying

TL:DR These are fantastic low abuse, everyday listening ear buds. Not optimal for exercise/gym, sweating use. This is a great system for the average person but will disappoint an audiophile. Bass is very pronounced and fun, mids/highs not as balanced. Battery life however is indeed astounding.

FULL REVIEW: I''m a video editor and often need to edit/review outside of my studio. I have used my ATH-M50x for almost 15 years so I''m very acquainted with the sound but was tired of bringing them around everywhere. I''ve had a pair of cheapo Ankers that I CANNOT BEAR to use outside of biking, battery dies all the time. Wanted a stylish, functional pair of buds for general listening and on the go editing. Big Audio Technica fan, was excited to discover they had a line of in ear products. This pair seemed the nice in between in regards to their high and low end models, battery life seemed out of this world compared to majority of other brands which was a big draw to me.

First listen, pretty much all the reviews about the heavy bass are correct. It is huge and the highs were noticeably diminished, muddied compared to my old M50x and ATH-ES7. There was a noticeable hiss/high frequency coming from the right bud as other people have said (though definitely less pronounced than the hiss in my Anker''s). I was initially so disappointed I was going to send them back and started looking for other options. Two things happened. One, it seemed to me that I would need to spend an additional $100 to get something somewhat satisfactory to the audiophile and was back to 6 hour single charge battery life. I personally was not needing these to be my GO TO audio listening experience. Secondly, I just started using them and I actually really enjoyed them. For someone who listens to EDM and cinematic music I grew to really enjoy the bass. My ears attuned to the high frequency to the point it doesn''t really bother me now. Spotify has a built in equalizer that I use to balance. They work really well for zoom calls and for casual listening and even for video editing they''ve been perfectly adequate. Extremely portable for traveling and again the stellar battery, not to mention aesthetically I think these look the best of all their models.

So I''ve decided to hang on to them. I''ve only had them for a month, the left bud has indeed turned off once randomly during that time. Buttons aren''t amazing to access but they are functional. I''ve worn the medium rubber tips and that''s been perfectly fine for me for my typical 5 hour continuous use. Volume levels do feel a bit constrained on the louder end, and yes the app is unfortunately still not great and not really necessary apart from updating the firmware (which you should do, helped with the frequency). They do seem somewhat delicate so again low-abuse product, office, plane, etc - I would not bring these hiking, biking, running, or in rough weather. We''ll see how they hold up over time.

I normally dont do reviews but I had to do this one because I think it''s a serious problem for something this expensive, first off almost always the left earbud will get really stupid and wont turn on the first time when I press it. It was tolerable at first but when your as busy as me and always on the go doing stuff you need everything to work as intended, that''s why I didnt cheap out on my headphones since they were going to be a huge part of my day however they glitch about alot, sometimes dont turn on when pressed and they always fall out of my ear I''ve tried all of the extendable ear pieces but none of them have worked, I dont consider my ear to be weirdly shaped but with how much it is the ear pieces should cover a wide variety of ear shapes, the sound quality is decent when I get it to connect, and battery life is good but honestly it feels like some corners were cut with this, for $150 this honestly isn''t worth it if you need something reliable, not to sound harsh but everytime I have to pick up my earbuds off the ground and search for them because none of the pieces fit my ear is alittle frustrating especially due to the price, I would appreciate if the bugs were fixed too about the connection issues, I sometimes touch them with my wet hands and maybe that''s why they''re acting up or perhaps the few times I''ve hard dropped them messed them up but this is kinda ridiculous, their nice for the first month or so but definitely dont last you for the long run.

I''d seen reviews for these earbuds complaining about coil whine, but I hadn''t experienced it myself until this firmware update. It is unbearable and I can''t believe I was naive enough to update my firmware when basically every tech company out there makes things worse with updates nowadays. There''s also no "roll-back firmware" option, so these earbuds are useless to me now. For anyone thinking about buying these, I recommend against them since you''ll probably just get a pair with this coil whine. I''m leaving this review as 2 stars because technically, the coil whine can be drowned out with loud music and being out in a loud public setting, but the moment it gets quieter, you can hear it in full. Not ideal at all. ---------- Previous (outdated) review: I previously tried the CKR7TW from their first generation of wireless earbuds, but it had horrible imbalanced sounds and a strobe light equipped on each earbud (which I had to tape over because it was so damn flashy). Thankfully, these newer CKS5TW''s were much improved compared to those in terms of sound balance. However, aside from the improvements in the sound and battery-life, there''s basically no weather protection, you can''t use the left earbud alone (master is right earbud), there''s no in-app equalizer, and there''s only one wing size. In other words, these are still quite basic and bare-bone for everything aside from the good sound quality and ridiculously long battery. --1) Sound - One of the other Amazon reviews for this (Squirel''s) basically encompasses everything I have to say regarding the CKS5TW''s sound. Borderline almost too much bass, with fairly clear mids and highs despite the strong bass. The only difference between our experiences is that I don''t hear an audible hiss, and only some very slight coil whine in my right earbud. (Perhaps it has something to do with updating the firmware?) *It should be noted that there are no equalizer settings in the Audio Technica app for you to play with which is a bit of a bummer. --2) Connectivity - Good connection even on AptX mode. Cuts out sometimes at the train station mid-downtown, but no disconnects anywhere else. *Edit: Forgot to mention that you can only use the right earbud alone since the right earbud is the master and the left doesn''t connect to the phone directly. You can use the left earbud alone if you take the right earbud out of the case, connect it to the phone, and leave it in your pocket though. --3) Battery Life - Amazing battery life. This is basically the specialty of these earbuds. --4) Noise Isolation - I think it''s average. Nothing special, but not bad either. --5) Controls - Right earbud is single click for play/pause, double/triple click for next/previous tracks. Left earbud is single click for volume up and double click for volume down. *The only customization in the Audio Technica app is switching which side those shortcuts are on. --6) Build Quality - Seems pretty solid. Only a very low level IPX2 rating though. The case also seems sturdy enough, although its shape and size leaves a bit to be desired since it''s relatively wide in all direction. --7) Call Quality - Untested. I don''t use earbuds for calls. Worthless rant: One other thing I would like to point out about these is that the indicator light is on the front of the earbud (facing the same direction as you) and it never stops flashing, even while playing music. These lights are certainly much smaller than the CKR7TW''s strobe-lights, but now that they face forwards, you just end up flashing everyone in front of you with a small but still fairly bright light, especially in dimly lit environments. I really don''t understand Audio Technica''s mindset about these since basically every other reputable brand I''ve tried turns off their flashing lights once music starts playing. Well anyways, just to recap: These CKS5TW''s are really good in terms of battery life and have some pretty good sound, but they''re really bare-bones for every other feature. Whether the price tag is worth it for what these offer is up to you.

Can''t complain, or say anything, really; the rest is personal preference, but on a technical standpoint, they''re pretty good drivers, period. The battery life is astounding! I listened at near maximum volume for about four hours at the gym, battery life was 90% when I checked. I couldn''t believe it, but then I read the specs, and it says 15 hours battery life, and it''s probably true! I''m not sure I could listen to them long enough without putting them back in their case to empty the battery. The only thing I''m left wanting is the microphone... It''s not great... People have a hard time hearing me (I didn''t test this myself, but I''ll edit this after I leave myself a voicemail if it turns out I was wrong, or doing something wrong). The app is perfect! You can customize the buttons, left, and right, pick what codec you want to use, update your firmware. The app is simple, fresh, crisp, like Audio Technica. They didn''t give-in, and pack it with stupid options, or publicity, there''s no store, nothing but the app, and it does technical things. It''s the most classy product companion app I think I ever used! Well done! So that''s that... I hope the phone thing I can work out, but other than that, these are keepers (returned the first pair I got to keep these). For people new to Audio Technica, what they make, and are famous for, is reference sound, so their focus is there, and this product respects that... Don''t expect a heavily-colored bass, there''s no bass boost, they''re not meant to be a "customer experience" in the sense another fine product might be, it''s a fine *technical* product (Audio *Technica*). They''re meant to be accurate so that what goes in, in terms of ones and zeros is what goes out in the air... Don''t expect the headphone itself to make your kick drums heavy, you can use an equalizer for that... It''s mostly an audiophile product, and as a studio audiophile, I''m satisfied with them. As an Audio Technica fan, I feel respected by this product, and I''m very satisfied with the sound they make, how loud they go, etc. Very good, highly recommended to anyone who''s used to studio monitors, and anyone who can use an equalizer if they want/need. If you just want to hear thump, thump, thump, thump, you''re going to be very disappointed, because you''ll hear the static the thumping machine makes in the background, too... If you''re new, just keep this in mind, and understand that all the other products are just made to make thumps, and nothing else... Once you start paying attention to the delicate thumping these name, you''ll start to enjoy quality, reference sound, and it might be your first step on a pretty cool journey. Highly recommended. Both these headphones, and paying attention to the music in your ears. 🙂
They''re what you''d expect from a pair of earbuds from Audio Technica... great sound quality, and clarity for this price point, and the package size. The look and feel are also what you''d expect for the price, and the quality... Well-rounded, and balanced product, overall. Nothing much to say there – nothing great, but nothing bad, either...

Falla el audifono izquierdo, incluso Audio Tecnica lo sabe lo ponen en el manual y así venden este producto. En mi caso a veces no se oye nada del audifono izquierdo.

Being the first wireless ear buds I''ve purchased and used, you may want to take my ratings with a grain of salt. With that said, very happy with the product and highly recommend it. HOWEVER don''t buy them used!! When purchasing it, the description mentioned something along the lines of it being practically new. Which to be fair is mostly true, I haven''t found and marks or scratches on the case or ear buds. But there are 2 big issues: - the USB cable is missing!! I mean, thankfully I have other cables around the house that works fine with it, but given the fact the product was "inspected" that is a huge blunder - the ear tips that were already attached were disgusting. I can only guess someone with a serious earwax issue wore them. Thankfully the other ones included seem to be untouched, and the dirty ones are too small anyway so I just threw them out. I believe I saved about $40 buying used, so a missing USB cable and a pair of unusable ear tips is small price to pay I suppose.
