BELLMORE, NY (PTA) — At Canjam Socal 2019 in Invine, California, I had the pleasure of reconnecting with Adam Sohmer and a chance to preview the then new TWS600 ($199 USD) wireless earphones from HIFIMAN which featured a new True Wireless® technology. The excitement surrounding this new technology was that it finally allowed for better sound and greater distances between the earphones and music source. This was especially useful news for gym-rats like myself and stationary runners who preferred not to have their DAP or phone attached at the hip despite said competitors’ “wireless” earphones of the day still seeming to be still lacking in practical wireless range.
The True Wireless® technology debuted by HIFIMAN then was a godsend for earbud users, and now with the new TWS800 ($299 USD) earbuds debuting this week, we’re even more excited as the extended range this series of earbuds is known for now receives a big dose of high-end audiophile sound to boot. More information on the TWS800’s newly designed drivers and electronics can be found in the enclosed press release below. Enjoy!
HIFIMAN Debuts TWS800 True Wireless® Earbud, With Onboard Amplifier and Audiophile-grade Drivers
New Bluetooth 5.0 Earbud Features High-end Output, Rugged Resistance to Dirt and Sweat
HIFIMAN, the leader in high fidelity personal audio, will soon deliver its second True Wireless® earbud that offers demonstrably improved sonics and extended Bluetooth reception that meets and exceeds expectation for the price.
The new TWS800 ($299 USD) is a full range high-performance Bluetooth 5.0 earbud with a built-in 5-6mW amplifier and audiophile-grade drivers for a frequency range of 20Hz-20kHz that reveals the subtle highs and deep bass inherent in every genre, from rock to hip-hop, electronica, classical, and jazz.
“The TWS800 is the next step in the evolution of True Wireless audio,” said Dr. Fang Bian, Founder, and CEO, HIFIMAN Electronics. “Bass response and overall harmonics are on a par with some of the best-wired in-ear monitors, in a form factor that is comfortable enough to wear all day.”
An essential factor in the TWS800’s high-fidelity performance is HIFIMAN’s Topological Diaphragm: each earbud’s diaphragm, which converts mechanical vibrations to sound, is covered with a Nano particle coating that contributes to greater sonic detail than is typically associated with True Wireless earphones.
A high impedance (150 ohms) Advanced Alloy Voice Coil maximizes vocal clarity and full-range sonic reproduction. A new magnet offers maximum sensitivity, which is critical for achieving the best possible sound from smartphones, tablets, and other low-voltage portable devices.
Similar to its predecessor, the TWS800 features crystal-clear Bluetooth 5.0 for trouble-free calls and crystal-clear sonics, even in crowded environments.
The TWS800 earphones provide 4.5 hours of playtime, with an additional 31.5 hours available from the sleek, metallic portable charging case that cradles the earbuds no matter how large the ear tip. Designed for active use, the TWS800 is IPX4-rated for resistance to sweat and dirt over hours of uninterrupted service. And its ultra-low latency characteristics allow users to enjoy videos without audible delay.
Added Dr. Bian: “The combination of our Topology Diaphragm Design, Bluetooth 5.0, and an audiophile-grade magnet add up to the TWS800 being the best option for music lovers who demand outstanding sonics, reliability, and comfort over the long term.”
The TWS800 True Wireless Earphones will be available in October at a suggested retail price of $299 USD. It will be available from Amazon and HIFIMAN’s online store at https://store.hifiman.com/

HIFIMAN was founded by Dr. Fang Bian in 2007 and, two years later, introduced the acclaimed HM-801, the first digital audio player to feature true audiophile-grade performance from a pocket-size form factor. Since then, HIFIMAN, under Dr. Bian’s guidance, has developed an extensive selection of no-holds-barred headphones, digital audio players, and headphone amplifiers that are consistently recognized as the best in class, offering performance that belies their price point, no matter the cost.
I would like to see this type of product work as a hearing aid as well.
