Fit

The fit is not bad. It is one size smaller from the first generation, and it fits better in the ear. Even so, it may be difficult to fit for people with small ears.

Connectivity

Quite excellent in the price range. I don't know well because I haven't been to a crowded place, but it's good at home. Distance resistance seems to be excellent, and even if it is 5 m away, it is seamless and does not disturb. Even if there is a shield, it will connect without problems.

 

I think there is almost no white noise.

 

There seems to be a compatibility problem with the ONKYO DAPs XDP-20 and XDP-30.

There is a zigzag noise, but I do not know the details, but I think that this tendency appears when sweeping the ANC model.

 

First of all, I must say that MTW2 has the latest firmware of 4.7.0, but my MTW2 is based on the firmware version when it was sold in Japan. There was a story that the sound quality would change when it was set to 4.7.0, and I liked the original sound of MTW2, so I have not updated it because there is no particular inconvenience. Therefore, please be aware that the sound may be different from the latest firmware version.

 

If you check the sound signature as a whole, it sounds like a U shape, and the warm sound is particularly noticeable in the mid to low range. The mid range is full and bright, and there is a certain amount of flash in the high range.

There is emphasis from the center of the low range to around the mid-low range, and the low range has a slightly superior relationship to the mid range, which emphasizes the volume and thickness. The mid range is a bit deeper than the low range, but the vocal range is clean and the vocal focus is good. There is a tendency that the sound is slightly concentrated in the midrange. Therefore, the midrange is thick, luxurious and full, but bass sounds are easy to overhang in the midrange, and some people may feel muddy. At least you'll feel warm and not a clean mids.

 

Since the mid-high range is calm, it is quiet above the vocals, and there are no exciting peaks. In addition, brass sounds and violins grow dynamically as they emerge from a calm background, so the sound path can be heard elegantly.

 

As a whole, it is finished in a highly artistic sound with a sense of luxury and luxury. Sounds very appealing to listeners looking for high end audio quality for classic and jazz.

The graphs above are measured and compared for both AET07 M size earpieces. There are various opinions about the sound quality difference between the original MTW and MTW2, but I don't think it is as big a difference as it actually is. However, there may be differences in sound quality due to the environmental noise reduction effect of ANC and differences in the size of the housing, so in reality you may feel a slight difference in sound quality.

The music used in the recording signature is from the game maker Nippon Falcom, which I love.

Final verdict

Comprehensive evaluation: ★★★★★

It's true that it's one of the best sounding of all current wireless wireless earphones, and the dissatisfaction of the original MTW has been greatly improved. The equalizer of the included app is a little confusing, but overall it has a very high level of perfection. Especially for those who want to enjoy rich midrange sounds in classical music and JAZZ and rich vocals, it is a model that can be recommended without complaint. It produces a very warm and moody sound
