You probably have heard about Mpow – they have the most affordable yet high-quality headphones lines in the market. Mpow is one of the best names out there selling premium Bluetooth accessories with budget-friendly price tags. Featuring qualities not any less impressive compared to big brands’, these wireless over-ear headphones are the some of the most decent and reasonably-priced picks for earmuff people.
The package comes with everything you need: the main headset, 3.5mm audio cable, USB charging (enabling charging from laptop), packing pack (offering convenient yet stylish storing and carrying around), and an user manual.
The first idea that comes to mind when people consider buying a pair of headphones is their design. Several customers have given feedbacks about the similarity between Mpows and the notorious Beats Studio designs, which is pretty obvious. There are the same touches of color combination, exterior black headband and ear-cups. But there is a subtle difference from Mpow’s that is enough to make them stand out: the left-right direction indications, which definitely help.
Ear-cups are customized to grab around ear comfortably, made from super soft textured memory foam. These Mpows are not specially engineered with noise-cancelling features, but the thick cushions of memory foam do wonders in blocking out noises considerately. Breathability and flexibility of earmuffs are still ensured when they are made from top quality materials. Plus, the device has the novel feature of hinged ends, allowing them to be folded inwards conveniently. The shiny stainless steel cover brings a really modern and chick feeling, which is also easy to keep clean. The left ear-cup is where the main buttons are: volume control, playback, call answering and the USB port. The right one is for the headphone jack if you want to go for a change with wired music playing.
The secret of the excellent audio delivery is the CSR chip and 40mm drivers located under the cover, which are the weapons of them Mpow Bluetooth Over Ear Headphones to deliver the crispest and clearest audio. Battery runs up to 13 continuous hours in music playback mode and 15 hours in phone answering mode. Mpows have your back when the battery is running low, just switch to the ear-jack option.
The next criterion is sound performance. As we mentioned they might not be the best at active noise cancellation, but the moderately thick memory foam cushion pads do a great jobs at block out surrounding noises. Sound quality is great whether you listen to music or play games. However, if there is anything I wish Mpows would improve, it is the bass enhancement. It is quite light on some specific tracks, especially when being played at high volume when even audios are sometimes slightly distorted. The power button would also have been more touch-sensitive, turning the device on and off requires a quite long firm press at the home button (around 2sec and 5sec respectively). To make up for those small downsides, Mpows have this super cool feature of LED light surrounding the buttons. On phone calls mode, the sound quality is decent. And you do not have to worry about missing calls no more with the standardized hands-free calling feature.
In a nutshell, the Mpow Over-the-Ear Bluetooth Headphones are totally a game changer in the mid-range market. Audio quality is decent, headset is comfortable to wear, battery lasts quite long, design is eye-catching, storage is convenient and stylish and so on. It is not too much or extraordinary but pretty impressive for a product of this price range. Bluetooth connecting takes no time, and they connect to a wide range of smart devices of phones and tablets. So if you are looking for a good pair of over-the-ear headphones, do not skip this one from Mpow.
