Audio-Technica debuts ATH-S220BT – compact wireless on-ear headphones
Audio-Technica have announced the introduction of their ATH-S220BT wireless headphones. The manufacturer says the new model has excellent sound quality in a lightweight, comfortable design, best in class battery life (up to 60 hours), low-latency wireless performance for maximum video and gaming enjoyment, and many additional performance and convenience features.
Retailing at around €50, the ATH-S220BT weighs just 180 g and features cushioned, low-profile ear-pads for long-wearing comfort. The headphones offer exceptional battery life – up to 60 hours of use on a full charge and up to 3.5 hours on a 10-minute rapid charge, via a USB-C connection and the supplied USB-C cable. The ATH-S220BT delivers clear, powerful sound, thanks to its 40 mm drivers, and its low-latency wireless mode assures minimal delay between the audio and video for the best-possible streaming, gaming and video viewing. The ATH-S220BT is Bluetooth 5.0-compatible and also can be used as wired headphones with the included 1.2 m cable.
The headphones’ multipoint pairing function allows users to stay connected to two Bluetooth devices at once, making it easier to switch between tasks. A built-in microphone enables clear, hands-free calling, without the need for an external mic. The ATH-S220BT’s Fast Pair feature allows pairing with compatible Android devices with just a single tap, and convenient ear cup controls provide easy operation of a connected device when playing music or making a call. The controls are compatible with Siri and Google Assistant, for fast access to voice recognition, messages, map navigation and other features. In addition, the ATH-S220BT’s Voice Guidance function can be used to provide notifications about remaining battery level, pairing status and more.
The ATH-S220BT comes in a number of colour options including black with dark-grey accents, navy with beige ear-pads and headband, and white with contrasting black trim. The Audio-Technica ATH-S220BT are available now.
