Review of Audio-Technica ATH-SPORT7TW Truly Wireless Earbuds
Welcome back to yet another review of truly wireless earbuds. In this review, we will be looking at the Audio-Technica ATH-SPORT7TW. As one of the pioneers in the audio industry, Audio Technica got a tad bit late to enter the truly wireless earbuds market. The ATH-SPORT7TW was their first pair of truly wireless earbuds. Despite the late entry, they have entered with a pair of buds that boasts amazing sound quality but lacks a bit when it comes to extra features. However, what is the main use of earbuds? It is to listen to audio, and with these buds, you can enjoy your audio to the fullest without a doubt.
Product Name: ATH-SPORT7TW
Product Description: he Audio-Technica ATH-SPORT7TW has a battery life of 3.5 hours with a single charge. The charging case adds another 17.5 hours of playback, which is another 4 full charging cycles for the buds. The case comes with a Micro USB charging port.
The Audio-Technica ATH-SPORT7TW truly wireless earbuds come with great sound, brand new design, good snug fit, and many more features that would interest the consumers.
The buds are chunkier than most other buds in the market. Yet, buds combined weight is only 12.8g, which is not too much stress on your ear. The buds come in a rich design with a matte finish. Apart from the silicone ear tips, the Audio Technica ATH-SPORT7TW comes with an ear fin to secure the fit. These four sizes of ear tips to choose from and three sizes of ear fins to select according to your preference. There is also an additional pair of Comply Foam ear tips in the box. The buds come in two color options, black, and grey.
Due to its chunkier design, the buds protrude from the ears a bit more than most other brands. Both buds are equipped with 5.8mm dynamic speakers and touch-capacitive controls. The hard plastic design is durable as long as you don’t slam these buds on the floor. It is also less prone to scratches due to the matte finish. An IPX5 water-resistant rating means these buds can withstand water splashed, but these shouldn’t be submerged in water. The water rating resistance rating is on par with Edifier TWS1 and Edifier NB2.

These buds do not come with active noise cancelation. However, the secure fit using the ear fins, provide these buds with solid passive noise isolation. It is on par with most other brands, such as the Jabra Elite Active 75t. The hear-through mode allows the user to know his surroundings to avoid any accidents on the road. It also helps the user to avoid having to remove the buds to make conversation. The hear-through mode adds a lot of value and it makes these buds better than models like Voonex Sound Element Duo.
The design of the charging case is top-notch. It is sleek and easy to carry around in your pocket without any trouble. The drawback in the case is the fact that it comes with a Micro USB port for charging. This causes inconvenience for users who use Type-C USB chargers for their phones. Having to carry an extra wire for the buds, is quite a hassle for users who try to reduce luggage at any given time. There’s an indicator on the back of the case that lights up to let you know when it is fully charged, charging, or in need of a charge. The case provides 17.5 hours of additional playback time, which is still quite low compared to the Lypertek PurePlay Z3.
