Great ANC headphones, particularly with LDAC and EQ tweaking

Review score 4.5 out of 5 stars
4.5 / 5 stars
8,8
  • Pros:
    Great ANC
  • Pros:
    Super fast charging
  • Pros:
    Great sound potential
  • Con:
    Can only be connected to 1 device at a time
  • Con:
    Pleather gets sweaty

Fantastic ANC bluetooth headphones with great sound potential. However, the default tuning is VERY bass heavy, to the extent that lots of clarity is lost at higher frequencies. Moreover, using the native app's equaliser will force SBC, whereas these headphones only really shine when using LDAC (therefore can't really recommend to ios users) and a properly configured EQ (system or 3rd party). Comfort is good enough, though the pleather of the pads is somewhat more platic-feeling/sweaty than others I've tried.

Great headphones, strange pouch

Review score 5 out of 5 stars
5 / 5 stars
9,6
  • Pros:
    Great sound quality
  • Pros:
    Intuitive touch controls
  • Pros:
    The adaptive noise cancelation
  • Con:
    Strange way of folding the headphones in the included pouch

The base is punchy, the mids very well rounded and the highs not metallic at all.
The Adaptive noise cancelation makes for a great experience where you're never totally unable to hear anything from the outside (which is a very unpleasant sensation)

Kwaliteitsvolle NC-headphones

Review score 4.5 out of 5 stars
4.5 / 5 stars
9,2
  • Pros:
    Noise Cancelling Kwaliteit
  • Pros:
    Geluidskwaliteit
  • Con:
    Connectie met 1 device tegelijk, altijd disconnecteren vooraleer te gebruiken op ander device

De noise-cancelling is top-notch, stofzuigers, huishoudtoestellen, noem het maar op: je hoort ze niet meer. Ideaal wanneer je je moet concentreren. Buitenshuis doen ze ook heel goed hun werk: in de auto hoor je je motor nauwelijks nog, wat zorgt voor rustige ritten, zeker in de vroege ochtend. Denk ook aan het vliegtuig: dit is al wat moeilijker, er komt nog een beetje door, maar het is stukken rustiger.

Noise-cancelling is natuurlijk niet voor alle geluid: gesprekken en onregelmatige geluiden komen er natuurlijk wel door, wat ideaal is als je irritante achtergrondgeluiden wegwilt, maar toch nog een gesprek wil voeren of de omgeving nopg een betje wilt horen.

De geluidskwaliteit is zeer goed om een bluetooth headset te zijn, maar het blijft natuurlijk Bluetooth. Ik heb nog geen kans gehad om de Sony LDAC encoder uit te proberen want de headphones zijn aangesloten op een iPhone.

Tot slot zorgt USB-C voor gemak en future-proofing.

Enige 'nadeel' dat ik heb gevonden: de bluetooth connectie werkt maar op 1 device tegelijk. Wanneer je wilt aansluiten op je tablet moet je steeds de headphones in bluetooth pairing zetten en connecteren met de nieuwe device.

  • Pros:
    Noise cancellation is amazing
  • Pros:
    Sound is great
  • Pros:
    Battery last quite a lot. not sure if the 30 hours advertised but i have only had to charge them once in the 2 weeks i have had them.
  • Pros:
    lightweight
  • Con:
    touch controls dont always work

They work and sound gret for studying at home, or traveling in public transport. Would not recommend for the bike because you don't hear cars, trams, buses or other bikes.

  • Pros:
    usb-C
  • Pros:
    cool gestures instead of buttons
  • Pros:

On this price range I considered another and this device. I am happy i took this one. Sound quality is amazing, is very comfortable and it looks cool!
Not only looks but the gestures to interact with it instead of buttons make me feel like one step into the future and I dont want to go back.

Perfect headset, but for this price I would expect no less.

Review score 5 out of 5 stars
5 / 5 stars

  • Pros:
    Excellent sound quality
  • Pros:
    Really good noice canceling
  • Pros:
    Sturdy carrying case
  • Pros:
    Long battery life
  • Pros:
    Good fit, no head squeeze
  • Con:
    Touch interface misses a tap sometimes
  • Con:
    Long press on/off button should have been a slider

The headset offers a sound quality that is just perfect and can even be tuned through the app. The noise canceling is just mind-blowing, train and bus noises disappear and voices get stripped of bass which causes them to be less distracting. The case is good and the battery lasts long.

The noise canceling does take a bit getting used to. In the beginning the bass-less sounds you still hear give you the feeling of going down a mountain where you need to adjust the pressure in your ears, but that is not the case and adjusting you ears doesn't do anything, since you are not actually going up or down. After about two weeks of use you no longer get triggered by this.

The long press to turn the device on or off is a bit too long and I would like to just have a slider instead.

Overall perfect headset.
