Audio-technica Releases Ultra Affordable ATH-SQ1TW True Wireless Earbuds
Featuring an all-new square design that combines bold styling with easy operation and clear, natural sound quality, Audio-technica's ATH-SQ1TW True Wireless earbuds are now available.
ATH-SQ1TW is a fun, stylish and easy to use entry into the high-fidelity sound of Audio-technica. Available in either Black or White, the headphones weigh less than 50g (including the charging case) and automatically turn on when they're removed from their supplied charging case, and shut off to begin charging when they're put back.
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 when the headphones are charged for just 15 minutes.
The ATH-SQ1TW Bluetooth headphones are easy to pair when first used, and support Google Fast Pair to connect with compatible Android devices.
Built into each earbud is a touch sensor control that allows listeners to control music playback and make and receive phone calls without using their smartphone.
Precision 5.8 mm drivers are said to offer outstanding sound quality, while low-latency mode ensures minimal audio delay when watching videos or playing games.
The ATH-SQ1TW can be used in single-ear or dual-ear mode, while the hear-through function lets in some ambient sound, letting listeners stay aware of their surroundings. In addition, a handy Voice Guidance function is available to provide notifications about the remaining battery level, pairing status and more.
Suited for any setting, the headphones have an IPX4-equivalent rain-and water-resistant design. The ATH-SQ1TW include four ear tip sizes (S, M, L, XL) and a USB Type-A to USB Type-C charging cable.
Available now, the Audio-technica ATH-SQ1TW are available in a black or white finish and sell in Australia for $129 RRP.

Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.
Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.
The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.
We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
