Review: Audio-Technica ATH-TWX7

Custom Sound Space

The Audio-Technica latest premium earbuds support many personalisation options

The new true-wireless earbuds from Audio-Technica, ATH-TWX7, are inspired by the 2023 flagship model, TWX9, but come with unique elements that distinguish them from the flagship. It misses out on the UV sterilisation feature, the Snapdragon Sound codec, wear detection, and the 360 Reality Audio found in the TWX9.

The TWX7 supports both physical click buttons as well as touch sensors, and the buttons are assignable from the smartphone app. The new Soundscape feature allows users to listen to relaxing sounds, with 13 background sounds to choose from. Using a similar 5.8mm driver design as the TWX9, the TWX7 offers similar audio characteristics which are a well-defined treble clarity and a comfortable bass boom.

The treble is not overly thin like Sennheiser MTW3 or Technics AZ80, but clear enough to enjoy the details and transparency. The staging for the treble frequency is wide which adds to the comfortable brilliance without sounding too forced.

Overall, the earbuds deliver a good-sounding experience. I do not feel fatigued from extended listening yet I get listening satisfaction from the balanced highs and the abundant lows. The ANC is quite strong and I can experience a bit of sound pressure. The higher frequencies are still faintly audible but not distracting.

There is no option to adjust the ANC level, but for Hear-Through, I can adjust the amount of sound to let in. Even at the maximum level, the ambient sound is quite natural and does not have an excessively amplified midrange.

The Talk-Through is an improved “Quick Hear-Through” from the TWX9 and is designed for the user to hold a conversation by tuning the ambient sound to focus on the human voice range. There are also settings to adjust music playback levels. You can assign a separate touch gesture to turn on this mode.

We say: The TWX7 offers a massive list of functions to personalise the earbuds with EQ, key assignments, and ambient control.
