Audio-Technica ATH-TWX7 Review | An Affordable Option for Clear, Customisable Wireless Audio

As the market for true wireless earbuds continues to grow, Audio-Technica's ATH-TWX7 is poised to be an appealing mid-range option. I was eager to evaluate this model's performance versus competitors in its price class. And after that evaluation, it is clear that Audio-Technica has designed these headphones with personalisation and customisation in mind.

Audio-Technica's ATH-TWX7

Right out of the box, the TWX7's balanced sound quality stood out. Its 5.8mm dynamic drivers, inherited from Audio-Technica's flagship TWX9, delivered an extensive 10-40kHz frequency response. Vocals and instruments sounded clear and detailed. Support for high-resolution LDAC ensured wireless transmission matched the source audio quality very closely during testing

Audio-Technica's ATH-TWX7

In terms of design, the ATH-TWX7 has a compact and lightweight form factor that is comfortable for extended listening sessions. Weighing only 4.7g per earbud, it has a smooth and rounded shape that fits discreetly in the ears. The earbuds come in three subtle yet stylish colours - Ash Black, Rich White and Stone Grey.


Key technologies like Bluetooth 5.1 provided reliable wireless connectivity during testing. In my testing, I found the ANC performance to be effective in blocking out mid-frequency noises like human voices and ambient activity. However, it could not cancel lower frequency environmental noises like traffic as effectively as some premium noise-cancelling headphones on the market. The hear-through transparency mode also has some room for improvement - there is a noticeable occlusion effect and my own voice sounds a little muffled when the mode is active.


The ATH-TWX7 supports two call modes - Natural Mode for quiet indoor environments and Noise-Reduction Mode, which uses beamforming microphones to clearly capture voices outdoors. I noticed voice quality was better in Noise-Reduction mode, but the callers I conversed with did say my voice was suppressed. The talk-through function works as advertised, lowering the music volume to let in voices.

ATH-TWX7 Charging

Battery life lasted the quoted 6.5 hours during testing with noise-cancelling enabled continuously, while the compact charging case kept the earbuds protected when not in use and also extended battery life up to 20 hours total. Its quick-charge functionality recovered quickly for on-the-go listening. Additional perks like one-sided mode, multipoint pairing and splash resistance adds to the earbuds’ value proposition. Pricing & Availability

Audio-Technica ATH-TWX7


Overall, the ATH-TWX7 impressed as a clear step up from basic TWS offerings, highlighted by balanced sound, customisable features and all-day comfort at an affordable price. Its sound quality rivalled wireless options beyond their class during our testing. For listeners seeking high-fidelity audio on-the-go without a large investment, Audio-Technica's new mid-tier model proves a very capable option.
