Wireless headphones are becoming more and more prominent as brands continue to kill off the 3.5mm headphone jack from our smartphones. There are premium options such as the Bose’s and Sony’s , but if you don’t feel like spending your monthly income on a headset, there are plenty of other choices for much, much less. If you’re on the market for any sort of headphone, be it in-ear, over-ear, etc, you’ll most likely have come across the Mpow brand. Mpow has risen to popularity over the last few years with their quality range of budget headphones. This is where Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones comes into the picture.
Mpow is one brand that’s been kicking out a lot of affordable audio gear, and one of its most popular offerings is the Mpow 059 headphones. They’re rated as the best-seller for over-ear headphones on Amazon, and why not? They cram into such a low price that people are urged to buy them.
Here’s what you need to know about Mpow 059
For $35, it’s hard to really complain about anything with the Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones. As long as the headphones turn on and play music, that’s basically already a win-win situation for this price range, isn’t it?
The sound quality here certainly won’t blow you away, but it’s actually rather enjoyable for all kinds of music. Everything does sound slightly muffled, but it’s nothing that gets in the way of enjoying your tunes. Whether you’re just chilling, listening to jams or jazz, or playing some pop stuff, everything sounds perfectly fine.
Battery life is possibly the second-most important feature of wireless headphones right after sound quality, and this is an area in which the 059 shine. The original version was only rated for 13-15 hours of playback, but following an update from October 2017, that’s been increased to up to 20. In other words, you’ve got plenty of juice for road trips, long workout sessions, you name it.
To reduce the price to such an extent it’s pretty natural that you have to cut some corners and that’s where the Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones falls short the build quality.
Corners need to be cut somewhere for headphones of this price, and for the 059, that unfortunately fell on its build quality.
The Mpow 059 are constructed mostly out of a very glossy plastic that instantly looks and feels cheap. Fingerprints stick on it with ease and I have a feeling it wouldn’t hold up well at all in the event of a drop.
There’s padding in the headband and around the speakers that try and keep you comfortable while jamming, and while they do alright for shorter listening stints, longer sessions usually resulted in some ear discomfort.
The Mpow 059 Bluetooth headphones over ear, hi-fi stereo wireless headset offers the choice of connecting via Bluetooth (version 4.0) or a standard ⅛-inch cable. This is especially useful when you run out of battery but still need to use your headphones. The battery itself has a 20-hour life and can fully recharge from flat in around 4 hours.
Having the cable also means you can use the Mpow 059 with in-flight entertainment. Keep in mind you will need your own in-flight adapter as Mpow do not supply this with the 059. Mpow does, however, supply you with a ⅛-inch to USB adapter for use with your laptop.
The Mpow 059 Bluetooth headphones over ear features several buttons on the right ear cup. There are separate buttons for volume up, volume down, next track and previous track. There is also a multi-function button in the center for power, play/pause, Bluetooth pairing, and call management. Below the right ear cup is your microphone, for hands-free calling. The multi-function button allows you to answer, reject and end calls without needing to touch your mobile phone. Double tapping the multi-function button with no audio playing will dial the last number you called. All the buttons work as advertised so, no issues there.
The Mpow 059 Bluetooth headphones over ear, feature CVC 6.0 Noise Reduction Technology. This is a noise-isolation technology opposed to active noise canceling. With CVC 6.0 you can enjoy a superior passive noise isolation experience but it won’t be enough to cancel out in-flight noise. Having said that, the Mpow 059 does deliver a significant amount of attenuation which is great for general use in public areas and public transport. CVC 6.0 also improves call quality by canceling unwanted background noise, which may be picked up by the 059’s built-in microphone.
