Audio-Technica ATH-CK3TW Review: Decent, Affordable True Wireless Earbuds
March. 10, 2020
There's no denying the ATH-CK3TW was Audio-Technica's most interesting announcement at IFA. The prospect of $99 true wireless earbuds from a company you could trust to deliver decent sound could have a huge impact on the competition. And even though the company increased the price to $119 before they went on sale, the point stands. Audio-Technica already has premium and mid-range options. Now it's trying to bring its true wireless formula to a budget device. And as you might expect, a cheaper price comes with a few sacrifices.
Five charges in case
Fit can be uncomfortable
Frustrating touch controls
The ATH-CK3TW are a great deal at $119, if you’re willing to overlook a few issues. They aren’t very comfortable and the touch controls can be frustrating to use. However, the sound quality is solid and the case holds five additional charges. For half the price of some of the competition, you can probably live with the caveats.
