Audio-Technica launches ATH-S220BT wireless headphone

Lightweight design, heavyweight battery life

by Andy Bassett

With a lightweight, low profile design and impressive 60-hour battery life, Audio-Technica introduces the ATH-S220BT wireless headphone at the affordable end of the personal audio spectrum.

While Audio-Technica frequently champions its headphone products as those favoured by musicians and studios around the globe, the Japanese audio company’s newest offering, the ATH-S220BT, is aimed at finding favour with the more value driven consumer.  

Remaining dedicated to sound quality, the S220BT features Audio-Technica's high-standard sonic reproduction plus a Low Latency Mode for minimal sound delay and impressive audio from any source.

While listening out and about, the headphones’ intelligent and lightweight design helps prevent neck and shoulder strain and, at just 180g, provides superior comfort for extended wear. Moreover, the low profile earpads are especially designed to prevent sound from escaping and disturbing others.

The 60-hour battery life, along with fast charging support which provides 3.5-hours of playback with a quick 10-minute charge, means the S220BT will be ready to perform in almost an instant. There’s also a USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable included so users are able to charge using a variety of different devices.

Call clarity is ensured thanks to Audio-Technica’s high-quality built-in microphone while calls and music can be managed via easy-to-operate on-ear controls. 

Bluetooth 5.0 is on board for connecting to compatible devices and delivers immersive high-definition sound on the go. Wireless pairing benefits from Fast Pair support so the ATH-S220BT headphone can connect to compatible Android devices with just one tap, while multipoint pairing offers access to multiple devices at once so users don’t have to disconnect from their smartphone just to link up with a laptop.

A 1.2m cable is also included whenever a wired connection is preferred.

Siri and Google Assistant are available at the touch of a button via a compatible Bluetooth connected device and Audio-Technica’s voice guidance function can be used to deliver notifications, including power and pairing statuses, as well as helping to monitor remaining battery levels.

The Audio-Technica ATH-S220BT wireless headphone is available 10th September 2021 at www.audio-technica.com, RRP £60/€69.
