  1. Mixcder T2 True Wireless Earbuds

    4.00 star(s)
    Mixcder T2 true wireless earbuds review: secure fit, epic battery life, but unimpressive sound The Beats Powerbeats Pro drew a lot of attention when it was released last year, making many people believe that was the right design for true wireless earbuds. But fellow headphone makers don’t seem convinced enough, with almost no major brands releasing similarly-designed products. But Mixcder, a company known for making budget-friendly headphones, is one of the few exceptions. The new Mixcder T2 has a form factor similar to that of the Powerbeats Pro...
  2. Shanling ME500 Platinum Edition

    3.00 star(s)
    These iems are just way over-hyped and over-priced. I compared them to the Astrotec Lyra Nature, and surprisingly the latter delivered better-defined bass and midrange, and crisper highs. I found that Shanling were investing heavily on advertising these few years and forgot to really work on their products. I've owned the M5 DAP, the MTW100. They both sound subpar in comparison to similarly priced competitions and have minor issues here and there.
  3. Mixcder E10 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones

    4.00 star(s)
    When thinking of ANC headphones, the first two brands that cross people’s minds are definitely Bose and Sony. Those who know the industry better would probably come up with names such as B&O, B&W, Jabra, AKG, etc. In fact, almost all famous audio companies are making ANC headphones nowadays. But products from those industry-leading brands normally cost quite a fortune, and aren’t always easy to recommend to average headphone users. Fortunately, we’ve also seen an increasing number of affordable ANC headsets entering the market in recent years. The...
  4. Mixcder E7 Active Noise Cancelling Over Ear Headphones (2019)

    5.00 star(s)
    Headphones with active noise cancelling were once considered a novelty, and those major brand products (SONY WH-1000XM3 and BOSE QC35 II) will still cost you more than 300 dollars, but you can find lots of more affordable ANC headsets on the market nowadays. Mixcder is known for making high-quality budget headphones and speakers, and their budget ANC headphones earned them a lot of popularity among users in many different countries. The brand recently renewed their best-selling Mixcder E7 for 2019. With Bluetooth upgraded to V5.0, the active noise...
  5. Creative Pebble Plus

    5.00 star(s)
    The Creative Pebble 2.0 speakers, which were released a year ago, have received great reviews from the media, as well as the customers. Somehow, they didn’t make their way into the Chinese market until recently, and when they finally did, the reception from Chinese consumers seemed nothing but underwhelming. The reason is quite simple: in the same price, there are many well-made 2.1 speaker systems to choose from, and an actual subwoofer is considered a must for the majority of Chinese PC users, especially those who would not spend money on more...
  6. Alldocube F40 Quad Driver

    4.00 star(s)
    Alldocube is probably an unheard name in the headphone industry, but it is a brand quite well-known for making affordable Android and Windows-based tablets. As the demand for tablet products is shrinking, this Chinese company began to venture into other markets. The Alldocube F40 quad-driver headphones are arguably the brand’s first attempt to break into the Hi-Fi industry. Don’t get me wrong, Alldocube has released a couple of wireless headphones before, but none of those products has made an impact big enough for the company to be considered a...

    4.50 star(s)
        The good Amazing design and build quality Lots of functionalities Full and balanced sound Solid battery life   The bad No carrying case included The sound reproduction lacks coloring and processing.   Creative Lab, a Singaporean company specialized in audio products, released the first generation SoundBlaster Roar in 2014, and the portable speaker soon became a global sensation, winning the ears and the hearts of the customers around the world. Its successor, the SoundBlaster Roar 2, was also very well received. Eying for continuing...
  8. Astrotec Ultimate AM850 Hi-Res High Fidelity Earphones, Corded HiFi In-Ear Headphones, Micro-Dynamic Driver Noise Cancelling Earbuds, Ergonomic Comfor

    4.50 star(s)
      Astrotec is well-known for their affordable quality headphones. They do have high-end offerings such as the AM1000 and the AX60, but it was their cheaper in ear monitors such as the AM700 and AM90 that really made the impact on the headphone industry.   The AM850 is Astrotec’s latest flagship in-ear headphone. Looking at the name, initially I thought it was just a regular upgrade of the AM800, which were released last year to replace the popular multi-awards-winning AM700. Well, I was so wrong. The Astrotec AM850 was greatly improved in almost...
  9. Over Ear Headphone Shareme 4.1 Bluetooth Foldable Headsets with Built-in Microphone,Ergonomic Design Wireless Headphone with Volume Control for Sports

    4.50 star(s)
        Only a few months after the ShareMe Pro went on sale, Mixcder, the Shenzhen based Chinese acoustic company released another set of headphones called the Mixcder ShareMe 5, a new addition to its popular ShareMe headphones line.   I am a little confused with Mixcder’s product naming, though. The first product of the ShareMe series was named the ShareMe 7, but the newest edition has a name of ShareMe 5. Since I know Mixcder’s products very well, I know which one I should pick, but for average consumers who know little about the Chinese brand...

        The Mixcder Shareme Pro is an upgraded version of the original ShareMe 7, which went on sale last year. The major selling point of the ShareMe series is the “ShareMe” Function, which allows users to share the same audio source simultaneously with two sets of ShareMe headphones.     Retail package and accessories           The ShareMe Pro comes with a very simple retail package and only a few accessories. You will find a charging cable and an Aux cable inside the box. Since a dedicated wall charger is absent, users will have to use...

    4.00 star(s)
    Once considered a novelty, active noise cancelling in-ear monitors are more common now since many manufacturers started adding this cool feature to their affordable headphone products. Mixcder, a Shenzhen based company which is known for making inexpensive headphones, also released a new set of in-ear headphones with Active noise cancelling, and named them the Mixcder ANC-G5.   Packaging and accessories         The Mixcder ANC-G5 headphones come with extremely simple packaging.

  12. Ausdom ANC7 Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Bluetooth Headphone

    4.50 star(s)
        Pros: Bright and realistic sound. Noise cancelling works well in blocking out all kinds of background noise. Solid battery life. Possible for both wired and wireless use.   Cons: The volume is significantly lower while the noise cancelling is off. The build quality is only average among headphones in this price range.   Active noise cancelling has always been considered a feature only for high-end headphones. But here come the Ausdom ANC7, which have a price tag of $129 on Amazon. Since many wiereless headphones released by this...
  13. 1MORE Triple Driver In-Ear Headphones with In-line Microphone and Remote

    4.50 star(s)
    Introduction         Once considered a novelty, headphones with armature drivers are now more common as many Chinese brands such as Astrotec, Dunu and Sound Magic have released a variety of less expensive armature and hybrid headphones in recent years. No brand went as far as Xiaomi, though, pricing its hybrid dual driver in-ear-headphones at only $17.54, which is truly affordable to everyone.   1more is a fairly new Chinese brand specialized in making headphones, but they did come with lots of promises. The fabulous packaging, refined...

      Let’s get something out of the way from the get-go. The Astrotec GX-50 in-ear Speakers are a great pair of in-ear headphones for the money — and decent headphones period.   Astrotec GX-50 Specs: Drive Unit: φ9.0mm Dynamic Impedance: 16OHM Plug: φ3.5mm Rated Power: 3mW Max Power: 10mW Frequency Response: 12Hz – 25000Hz Sensitivity: 104dB/1mw (S.P.Lat 1kHz) Cable: 1.2m ± 0.3m PU Colors: Athens Black / Dream Blue / Crystal Purple / Jewel Pink / Space Grey / Neptune Blue   Design       Well, for starters, they’re...
  15. Astrotec GX-40

    4.50 star(s)
      The Astrotec GX-40 is a much anticipated release because of the positive reception of the GX-50, which went on sale just two months ago. Astrotec claims that the GX-40 is as good as the GX-50 in terms of material and sound quality, but the price is $13 lower.   Specifications   Driver:9mm lanthanon permanent magnet Impedance: 16 OHM Frequency response: 8 Hz-24.5 kHz Sensitivity: 104db Rated power: 3mw Power capability: 15mw Cable length: 1.2m PU Plug: 3.5mm gold painted straight plug   Retail Package     The Package came in a...
