First, what is the latency with these things? Even a small lag between what is seen and heard while watching a video can render it unwatchable, and true wireless Bluetooth earbuds are particularly prone to this problem. Second is what the IPX waterproof rating is on these? not seeing anything listed.

At least for me, my Galaxy Buds have never once had this problem.

Woof love Audio Technica but these look like duds at $130. If you're in the market check out the Soundcore Liberty 2 Pros. Should be able to get them for $110 still and they're pretty great.

Lmao. I think he was asking about the item posted. Not Galaxy Buds.

Well galaxy buds are probably the best all around pick for $100 dollar price range. The sound core liberty pro 2 are the best for music, but for podcast, calls etc the galaxy buds are better.

Yeah... I got that. The poster made a sweeping generalization about true wireless earbuds from what they had read/heard/seen.

I simply posted that in my experience with Galaxy Buds, they don't have the issue they were speaking of. Plus a set of buds is cheaper than these if they were to fall in the price point that they would want to give them a try.

I think the latency was a problem prior to Bluetooth 4. If your device (both the headphone and your phone/computer) supports Bluetooth >4 there should be no noticable delay.

Iphonedo just released AirPod pro review recently and galaxy buds had around 400ms delay aka .4 seconds. No information on audio technica but they make great audio products.

Galaxy Buds don't support low latency AptX and can't be recommended for watching TV because of the latency:
Running on a Broadcom chip, the Galaxy Buds lack support for Qualcomm's AptX or AptX HD, and there's no LDAC to be found here, either.
From this point of view it's hard to call them "best". Average at best - yes.

They support Qualcomm® aptX which is low latency codec recommended for "transmitting television audio to Bluetooth capable headphones"

I haven't read the article, but based on their name, they probably focused on iPhone latency. Galaxy Buds are particularly good when paired with Samsung devices because of the Samsung scalable codec.

With my experience on Android with Bluetooth headphones, video and audio are not a problem. Video syncs up to the audio perfectly. The only issue with BT headphones I've noticed is games. Only there do you notice any audio lag.

Is this an absolute upgrade from the CKS5TW? I bought it for exactly the same price as this one and the mids of that one is hollow and distant. This one seems to have a DAC built in. Wonder if the app offer controls like the sony. I also have the Jabra T75 on the way but still thinking about getting this.
