What customers say about "Key Specs"
Audio-Technica SPORT7TWBK SonicSport Wireless In-Ear Headphones, Black
  • The SPORT7TW's are the best sounding of the bunch, but that’s not surprising. Their clarity is superb.
  • The sound of the SPORT7TW is absolutely pristine with beautiful, clean bass up through mids and highs.
  • Sound quality was very nice. Not as good as my Bowers and Wilkins, but better than any other buds I have used in the past.
  • The mids (most important) was pleasant with no nasal overtones. Highs were very present and not sibilant.
  • Right ear piece playing lower volume and distorted audio time to return them I guess such a shame.
Audio-Technica CKR7TW Full Wireless Bluetooth Earphone
  • Battery life is very good. I am impressed with the sound quality comparing with my wired earphones.
  • The sound quality is pretty good as well as the long, the magnetic dock works well, battery life is long.
  • The battery life is about 4 hours of constant use, which is decent.
  • Apart from that the battery life is good, the sound on playback is also good and the range was fine.
  • Overall, sound and the novelty of not having wires is nice. But battery life, fit and practicality lose some.

What customers say about "Features"
Audio-Technica SPORT7TWBK SonicSport Wireless In-Ear Headphones, Black
  • Damn, interms of the tech they are great the ear-thru-mic is good the fit is excellent with many options for different ear sizes.
  • They sound amazing and fit great and are awesome to workout.
  • The fact that they are waterproof is great. The sound is great and sound like new every day.
  • The connectivity is bad, constant problems, music won’t pause when I use the touch consistently, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.
  • The connection is constantly lost and the headphones have to be connected again. This happens at least once a day.
Audio-Technica CKR7TW Full Wireless Bluetooth Earphone
  • Although they are obviously not true "Active" noise cancelling earbuds, these fit snugly into the ear canal and cut out a lot of the outside sounds you would normally hear with headphones or earphones.
  • The earbuds fit snugly and I found that no amount of shaking my head about or running on the treadmill dislodged them which is great if your exercise/workout is an intense and vigorous one!
  • I didn't feel any discomfort from wearing the earbuds over a prolonged period.
  • These have a 24 bit DAC, but only support 16 bit AptX, NOT AptX HD....which cripples the whole point of using a high end DAC.
  • Notice how there's no IPX water resistance rating? That's because, in a time when $40 earbuds can be fully submerged, these pricey earbuds may not even be sweat tolerant.
