First up is a huge shoutout to MPow for sending this unit out for the review. You should definitely check out the web page at the link for all their products and a new section being added to the site for giveaways.
The MPow Muze touch BT 4.0 Headphones are by no means the loudest headphones you can find, but at this price point there aren’t many, in my opinion, to beat them.
The touch controls, once gotten used to, work well and I had no problems with them at all, very smooth and intuitive. A neat touch if I might say so.
From a sound point of view, they are driven more towards the bass happy of us. When connected via Bluetooth to a device I found the best thing to do was turn the device to it’s max. volume then use the touch controls to find your happy place, they are pretty bass laden but connected via iOS I could not get them to distort, believe me, I tried with many genres of music and the limiting on the volumes prevents it but still allows them to be loud, and the sound cancellation prevents the wife or kids from lowering your enjoyment. A full range of sounds is easily heard right through to some pretty high trebles too.
If you run out of battery, though 12 hours is more than enough, then you just plug them in via the supplied flat anti-tangle cable using the 3.5 mm headphone jack and you’re good to go again. Once home you just plug in via the micro USB for a couple of hours and you have that care free unto 12 hours of wire free music again.
They have plenty of soft padding in all areas and you only start to feel them after long 3-4 hours sessions of listening and even then I didn’t find them too uncomfortable to carry on listening. If you’re in the market for such a set of cans and you’re on a budget then you can’t go far wrong with these.
