Released Sep 4, 2019


What's in the box

  • 30 cm (12") USB-A/USB-C charging cable
  • eartips (XS, S, M, L)
  • 3D loop supports
  • silicone rings


Audio-Technica's ATH-CKS5TW has stellar battery life and is affordably priced. The true wireless earbuds also have solid sound quality and reliable on-board controls. However, they lack the customization a lot of the competition offers, and they're missing some key features that would be nice to have. If you can live without those, the ATH-CKS5TW earbuds will likely last much longer than you'll ever need them to, and at $169, they won't break the bank either.

Perfectly pairing luscious sound quality with good battery life and an affordable price, the Audio Technica ATH-CKS5TW offers a new prosumer audio choice for Audio Technica fans the world over. At $149, this small earphone is big on sound and a great bargain.

With a promising battery life and well-managed bass enhancement over Audio-Technica’s usual neutral sound, the Audio-Technica ATH-CKS5TW true wireless earbuds have a lot going for them. However, they are let down a bit by their fit – mileage will vary of course depending on your preferred bud style and the size of your ears, but all will find the fiddly case fit will annoy over time.
