It is official. Samsung-owned AKG has its first true wireless sound earbuds. Designated model N400, it was released without fanfare. It was just quietly posted on its parent company’s South Korean website.
Expect this TWS newcomer to rock active noise cancellation, along with IPX7 rated construction, a 5-hour battery life with ANC (6, without), and Qi-certified wireless charging case that will provide user with an hour of use with 10-minute charging.
Like any good TWS, it totally supports Samsung’s Bixby, as well as Sir and Google Assistant. And there’s, of course, on-bud touch gestures control and app-integration for fine tuning the EQ and noise-cancelling level.
The real draw here is perhaps the price for a pair of TWS with ANC. According to a report, the AKG N400 True Wireless Earbuds sells for 229,000 Won. That works out to be around $186 based on today’s going rate which is quite competitive when compared to its competitions bearing similar feature set.
No words on when it will land outside of South Korea, but it should be very soon and hopefully, at around the same price point.
