Shanling MTW100 TWS Stylish Red Version Quick Review with BA drivers | Hifigo
Sound performance of MTW100
The sound is what really impressed me about the MTW100.
First of all, Pairing them with my smartphone was really simple and quick. I just took them out of the case, pulled up the Bluetooth menu on my phone, and tapped on the MTW100 in the paring list, and I was ready to go.
I used Tidal Hi-Fi tracks streamed from my phone for the bulk of my testing, and I really liked what I heard. The overall sound is very balanced, with no apparent emphasis on any part of the audio spectrum.
The treble is really crisp without too much sizzle, mids are really open and vibrant, and the bass comes in just enough to add a nice weight to the rhythm. If you’re looking for extended low end with a really hard bass slam, then the balanced armature version may not be for you. The Dynamic driver model may be more to your liking.
The soundstage is also fantastic for true wireless earphones. Most TWS earbuds don’t have a lot of depth or width to the sound. You just look for a good tonal balance and clarity. But the MTW100 plays way outside of your head, and it sounds great.
When I listened to “Intentions” by the rapper Big Boi, the mix was just about perfect. The bass hit just right, even though it wasn’t super deep, (you can tell they use some porting to augment the low end) the vocals were crisp and clean, and the treble while slightly rolled off, provided just the right amount of detail. I really liked what I heard.
If you like a mid-centric or balanced sound profile, then you will love the sound from these earphones. The touch controls take some getting used to, but the MTW100 are well-built and fit great. To me, they are the most comfortable TWS buds I’ve listened to so far, due to their small size and featherweight construction.
