The market for TWS earphones has expanded a lot in the past few years. Almost all of the major smartphone brands have introduced their own lineup of earphones. And now, Acer, a PC manufacturer, has joined the race too. The company has launched three new TWS earphones in the budget segment in India. In this post, we will be taking a look at the specs, features, expected price, and availability of Acer TWS earphones in Nepal.

Acer, Gateway TWS Lineup:

Among the three new TWS earphones, only two have the Acer branding. The other has Gateway in its moniker. In case you are unaware, Gateway is a computer hardware company that was acquired by Acer back in 2007.

Gateway GAHR012 TWS

Here, the Gateway GAHR012 is the most premium TWS that Acer has in its offering. The design of the TWS is nothing to write home about. It’s another Apple AirPods Pro wannabe. The earbuds sport a stem design and come with silicone ear tips and are IPX4 certified against water damage. Even the charging case is heavily inspired by the Apple counterpart. It has a button on the front with battery indicators just above it.

The earphone features a 9mm driver. It has a frequency response of 20Hz – 20kHz, which covers all the frequencies that are audible to humans. Acer has included touch-based control on the earbud. There is Bluetooth 5.0 for connectivity and the earphone is listed with a latency of 220ms. The earphones are said to offer 4 hours of playback time on a single charge. The charging case can charge them in 1.5 hours.

The bottom portion can be separated from the rest of the case. The GAHR010 features a Type-A cable and a Type-C port.
