Audio Technica self-disinfecting headphones promise hygiene + premium sound

Audio Technica has just launched a pair of wireless ANC headphones that claim to be self-cleaning, just like the LG Tone Free line of headphones. Of course, coming from the Japanese audio pro, I can bet the audio will be crystal clear, given their emphasis on audio dynamics.

The leading audio brand is challenging companies like the Sony WF-1000XM4, Bose QuietComfort or AirPods Pro with their premium noise canceling earbuds. The undeniable USP of the new ATH-TWX9 headphones headphones it’s their ability to disinfect buds while charging in the case within 70 seconds flat courtesy of UV sterilization. Audio accessories are effective against 99% of E. coli and bacteriophage viruses, and 90% powerful against Staphylococcus aureus.

This year marks the 60thth anniversary of the brand, and they have already caught our attention with one transparent rotation and a nostalgic recreation of the classic Sound Burger Turntable. To continue the momentum, these value-for-money headphones add some special functionality that will add enough merit to entice audiophiles to ditch their wired headphones.

The IPX4-rated ATH-TWX9 headphones are loaded with beam-forcing microphones with hybrid noise-canceling technology for adaptive ANC that the user can customize to his/her liking. I appreciate this feature the most as the ANC can sometimes be too loud when it’s not needed. High-end features continue with multi-device pairing via Bluetooth v5.2, Sony 360 Reality Audio and Qualcomm aptX Adaptive audio.

Audio Technica promises a “powerful and immersive soundstage” powered by high-resolution 5.8mm drivers, which should interest die-hard audiophiles. Estimated battery life on the ATH-TWX9 headphones is 18.5 hours with the charging case and six hours independently with ANC enabled. Gamers will also be kept honest, as the headset has high-resolution audio up to 24-bit/96kHz and low-latency gaming support.

The buds will be available in a Japanese black color with dark bronze accents for $299. The pack also includes 12 different sized and styled silicone tips for the best ergonomic comfort.
