Audio-Technica's ATH-TWX9 earphones come with their own UV sterilisation bath.

Audio-Technica is busy celebrating its 60th birthday, and the latest release is the ATH-TWX9 true wireless earbuds, perfect for those concerned about what they shove in their ears.

The ATH-TWX9 are noise-cancelling earbuds that also boast an IPX4 splashproof rating and a total of 18.5 hours of battery life, including the charging case. However, what truly sets it apart is that the charging case can also give the buds 70 seconds of UV sterilisation each time they're returned to the case, eliminating bacteria and viruses from the surface. They also support Qi charging.

The new self-cleaning buds connect via Bluetooth 5.2 and are certified for Sony's 360 Reality Audio, as well as having a low latency mode for when you're playing games or watching movies. You also get multipoint support for two simultaneous Bluetooth connections, and they'll play nicely with Alexa and Google Assistant.

Naturally, Audio-Technica states that the ATH-TWX9's 5.8mm drivers will provide an impressively robust and immersive soundstage. Additionally, we are told to expect impressive call quality, with the earphones having a sidetone function allowing you to hear your voice during calls for more natural-sounding conversations.

applause awards

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.
