  • Snapdragon Sound & Bluetooth 5.3: The newest Bluetooth SoC from Qualcomm, QCC3056, is used to support the powerful mobile audio technology SnapDragon Sound. It has passed Qualcomm's stringent interoperability tests for distortion rate, connection stability, and low latency. The highly efficient and low latency audio codec "aptX Adaptive" supports data rates of up to 96kHz/24bit for the Edifier W220T, enabling high-resolution level music playback completely wirelessly.
  • EDIFIER's 26 years of vocal technology: The 13mm liquid crystal polymer composite diaphragm is used to ensure low-frequency descriptive power by using a driver with a large aperture for a fully wireless earphone. The diaphragm utilizes Uniforce technology to reduce distortion to 0.5%, faithfully reproducing the original details of the sound source.
  • The aptX Voice technology supports a sampling frequency of 32 kHz, which has a wider bandwidth than conventional technologies, enabling high-quality voice calls. The left and right earphones are equipped with two microphones each, and the "cVc 8.0" noise-canceling technology reduces environmental noise to deliver a clear, easy-to-hear voice to the person on the other end of the line. The half-in-ear body structure, which is lightly inserted into the ear, significantly reduces pressure on the ear canal using an ergonomic approach based on a database, and provides a high level of spatial expression and a light wearing comfort.
  • Up to 24 hours of continuous playback; Equipped with a 35mAh lithium-ion battery in the left and right earphones and a 350mAh lithium-ion battery in the charging case. The earbuds can be charged in 15 minutes for 120 minutes of playback, so there is no need to rush when you are on the go.
  • The Edifier Connect app for iOS and Android OS allows users to check the battery level, start/stop pairing, and customize the functionality of the device by switching between game modes, selecting sound modes, and assigning pressure-sensitive sensor functions. The Edifier Connect app also allows users to customize the device by switching game modes, selecting sound modes, and assigning pressure sensitive sensor functions.

Connection quality

I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with aptX.

 

I don't know, I haven't been in crowded places, but it is stable in my home. Distance tolerance is excellent, and the connection is seamless and intact even at a distance of about 5 meters. Music can be heard consistently without interruption, even across obstructions.

 

There may be a small amount of white noise, but most people probably won't notice it.

 

Interface/operation

The operating interface is a touch type.

Sound quality general comment
  • Original sound fidelity: B-
  • Recommendation: C
  • Personal preference: C

 

If you are buying these for Snapdragon Sound, fine, but if you are buying these for sound quality, be aware that the poor fit not only limits considerably the number of people who can experience the potential of these earphones, but also the overall sound performance is mediocre.

Sound quality features

  • Comfortable to listen to
  • Mild

 

Cons
  • Significant lack of high frequency extension
  • Poor range feel
  • Sound easily changes with fit
  • Lacks in resolution

General comment

The Edifier W220T is one of the few in-ear earphones that supports Snapdragon Sound, and if that's what you're buying it for, it's a good bet. However, if you are buying it for its sound quality and usability, it is not too late to think about it a little more carefully.
