What are TWS (True Wireless Stereo) Headphones and Earbuds?

Having a pair of Bluetooth headphones allows you to bring your music on-the-go, however True Wireless Stereo is even better! TWS is a feature in many modern headphones and earphones, but what is it?

TWS - The Next Level of Wireless Audio

Almost every audio delivery device on the market today has a wireless version, as to allow users to not be tethered down by cables. However, not every wireless or bluetooth implementation is the same as many different wireless technologies exist.

True Wireless Stereo (TWS) is a feature of some high-end headphones and earphones that allows users to hear music wirelessly in stereo. This was previously something that was able to only be done by 2.4GHz headsets, while Bluetooth remained mono. While this may not seem like an issue, it ended up resulting in music sounding flat for listeners.

Simply put, music isn’t made to be heard in mono anymore. Years ago when music was first recorded, there wasn’t any way to allow people at home to hear the real depth of its sound as it was recorded in mono. Mono tracks are recorded into only one channel, which means no matter how many speakers you have, a mono system would still only output that one single channel.

This is where stereo comes in, as it’s designed to be played through multiple speakers, with multiple sounds coming through them to create the feeling of live music. The benefits of stereo don’t just end with music either as games and movies are incredibly more immersive than if they were in mono.

TWS (True Wireless Stereo) truly gives the benefits of using a wired set of stereo headphones, as well as the benefits of traditional wireless headphones, without the music sounding flat or needing to be tethered by wires.

TWS headsets come with a plethora of benefits, such as being small in size, lightweight, and easy to carry. However, the big benefits are that they’re completely wireless and easy to pair to your smartphone or other device at the push of a button.
