HIFIMAN TWS600 True Wireless Earphone Review

So what’s the cost of getting rid of that connecting cable? Well, there are a few. First, are the available codecs. Many will only support SBC and AAC. Some support AptX HD, but none I know of support LDAC. Not even Sony’s own WF-1000XM3. This is due to bandwidth limitations. Typically, the signal is sent to one of the earbuds and that earbud will have to spend bandwidth to connect to the other.
The other tradeoff is having to carry a charging capsule or case around. They could be bulky inside the pockets or become inconvenient at a gym (nowhere to put them). There is just something to be said about just having a pair of Bluetooth earphones wrapped around your neck. You don’t have to deal with the case or the individual buds. They just “hang” there. The Jaybird earphones are an example of this.”
