Audio-Technica’s new ATH-SQ1TW true wireless earbuds stand out with a unique square design that also functions to allow for clear and natural sound, says the company.
Available in a choice of six colours (licorice/black, popcorn white, blueberry, caramel, popsicle red/navy, and cupcake pink/brown) and available in Canada for an MSRP of $119, the ATH-SQ1TW headphones are dubbed as a “fun, stylish and easy to use entry into the high-fidelity sound of Audio-Technica.”
They automatically turn on when they’re removed from their supplied charging case and shut off and begin charging when they’re put back. The Bluetooth ATH-SQ1TW headphones are easy to pair when first used, and support Google Fast Pair to easily connect with compatible Android devices. Each earbud features a built-in touch sensor control, which allows listeners to control music playback and make and receive phone calls without having to use a smartphone.
With precision 5.8 mm drivers, a low-latency mode ensures minimal audio delay when watching videos or playing games, says Audio-Technica. The headphones are lightweight and are supplied with different sizes of ear tips to ensure a comfortable fit. They offer up to 6.5 hours of continuous use with the headphones fully charged, and up to 19.5 hours when the headphones and case are completely charged. A quick-charging function provides about 60 minutes of playback after just 15 minutes. The ATH-SQ1TW can be used in either single-ear or dual-ear mode according to your preference and needs.
The hear-through function lets in some ambient sound if desired, letting listeners stay aware of their surroundings. A handy Voice Guidance function provides notifications about remaining battery level, pairing status, and more. The headphones have an IPX4-equivalent rain-and water-resistant design so they can withstand a splash as well as sweat.
