Pros: The sharing feature is the star of this show. Having two sets for use traveling with children or for gaming consoles etc make these worth consideration.
Cons: Huge bass and little else to the sound signature. Needs heavy EQ.
First things first, I split the cost of the 1st pair of ShareMe Pro headphones with MixCder in exchange for an honest review. I bought the 2nd pair outright and with no coercion of any kind as I felt the best use of these was in pairs. Thanks to Mixcder for continuing to make excellent products available for review at reduced costs. I always enjoy seeing the box coming from amazon and knowing that another interesting product has found its way to me to try out.

Without further ado, The Mixcder ShareMe Pro:

Packaging: They ship in a rather plain box with a plastic insert that holds the headphones. The charging cable and 3.5mm cable along with the instruction book are hidden underneath.

Packaging1.jpg
The box doesn’t do a great job in conveying the idea that these can be used in tandem as it wasn’t immediately apparent to most at my office that the red and blue were supposed to represent 2 different sets of headphones. They thought it was just decoration. The reverse doesn’t do much better.

box-rev.jpg



They have specs in 7 different languages, but no information about the Bluetooth sharing capability. Without a doubt, they need to repackage these so people know more about what is inside the box.

Build Quality: The cups are plastic while the band is metal sandwiched between two layers of plastic. The cups swivel vertically about 35 inward at the top as well as having the ability to rotate 90 to one direction and 15 the other on the horizontal. Controls are found at the bottom of both earpieces with power and volume on the left and track forward, back, and play/pause on the right. The microphone is on the left side while the right has the 3.5mm jack for wired use.

band.jpg leftcontrols.jpg rightcontrols.jpg


Comfort: Comfort is good due in part to excellent pads and in part to the modest weight and swivel of the earpieces. I was able to wear them for extended periods without issues of overheating or discomfort. Since attaching them to the ps4, the kids have used them pretty constantly and none have complained about them.


Battery Life: I was able to get an average of 16.5 hours of life per charge on both sets when used in tandem and a little over that when used as a single device. Recharge time was roughly 2 hours using a 1A charger.



Sound:

Bass: lots of it. These are not V shaped, they are a V that somebody broke the right leg off entirely. Bass, Bass, and more. These need an EQ or the mids and highs are completely dwarfed by the lows. Bass is a bit loose and dominated by upper bass with modest extension. Once EQ’d the treble can only be described as a bit dull. The good news is I think it might be impossible to make anything sibilant on these so if you are super sensitive to high frequencies, this might be a plus. The tuning also makes these very forgiving of poor recordings so they will play well with the top 40 lovers and the like. No amount of EQ is going to turn these into a super resolving audiophile headphone (hint if you are looking for that in a Mixcder Bluetooth set, consider the MS301). The good news is the tuning is very popular and many will like them in spite of a very bass heavy signature.

Soundstage is a bit crowded as is expected in a closed back headset but isolation is not fantastic. I tried listening in bed but got told to turn those things off so SWMBO could sleep.

Sharing:

At this point, if you are guessing these were not my favorite headphone, you’d be correct. So, I did what any other sane person would do, I bought a 2nd pair. The single biggest calling card for these is the Sharing feature so to give them their due, I had to see if it worked and if it was enough to change my rather low opinion of them. When the 2nd pair arrived, I paired them to the first running both off my HTC M9 phone. While it didn’t change the sound profile, it did work flawlessly. No lag even at beginning of tracks, no break up due to movement unless the headsets were more than about 20 meters apart. If you were in the same room, they worked well together. Inserting a concrete wall between them reduced the 2nd pair to earmuffs so know that you cannot use them in different rooms when paired together in most cases.


Now I got to thinking, what to use them for.


1.) Back of the van with the I-pad playing movies for the kids - yep works fantastically and SWMBO and I can carry on a normal conversation again. This alone was worth what I paid for them.

2.) Watching TV at night while others sleep. As previously mentioned this was a bust when in the bed next to someone, but worked quite well when one person wanted to doze while others wanted to watch TV. We paired both sets to the TV and I no longer had to listen to pretty little idiots. Again, well worth the cost of purchase.

3.) Gaming, we attached them to the PS/4 and again, works great. The only drawback here and it isn’t the fault of the headphones is now the kids yell at each other because they can’t hear themselves during gaming. If they could come up with a way to use the Mic in addition to the phones with the gaming console so in-game chat went through the headphones this would be a real coup.


Overall:

This is going to be one of the strangest comments made on head-fi. I would not buy a single set of these for use as I think there are better headphones in the same price range for listening by oneself. I would however buy two pairs. The utility of having two pairs connected to the same source is a fantastic option for parents with children and the price is not so ridiculous that purchasing 2 or more pairs isn’t possible for most. If you have now heard Frozen for the 4000th time and would dearly love to regain some of your sanity, I highly recommend these. No, they aren’t for most head-fi members, but for their children or maybe parents who like to watch late night TV at a volume that can be heard from the next county, these are just the ticket.

Pros: great build quality, solid battery life, comfort and isolation, ShareMe function
Cons: unbalanced sound

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
 
DSC03833.jpg
 
DSC03834.jpg
 
 
 
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 their smartphone chargers or their computers, or other devices with a USB output to charge these headphones.
 
 
Design and build
 
DSC03844.jpg
 
 
Compared to the original ShareMe 7, the Mixcder ShareMe Pro is a much more polished set of headphones. The material choice for the chassis feels superior to last year’s ShareMe 7, and there are no ugly mold lines.
 
DSC03863.jpg
 
 
The adjustable left and right ear cups are connected by a stainless steel band with plastic rails in the middle. The ear cups are covered in artificial leather ear pads, which are very soft. The headband is also covered in the same material.
 
DSC03867.jpg
 
DSC03847.jpg
 
 
There are many buttons and ports on the ear cups of the ShareMe Pro headphones. On the left side you will find the power/pair button, volume rocker and 3.5mm audio jack. The right era cup plays host to the play/pause button, previous track/next track switch, and the Micro USB charging port, with a removable lid.
 
DSC03835.jpg
 
 
Like the ShareMe 7, the ShareMe Pro can be folded into a smaller package for easier carrying, but the mechanism is somewhat different (The photo above shows the difference). The difference is basically footprint versus thickness. For me, I prefer the ShareMe Pro’s mechanism, which is the same as the Ausdom Anc 7 headphones. Unfortunately, the Mixcder ShareMe Pro does not come with a beautiful carrying case like the ANC 7 did.
 
DSC03841.jpg
 
 
When it comes to overall build quality, the ShareMe Pro is definitely a lot better than the ShareMe 7, and also superior to most of headphones in this price range.
 
 
 
 
Bluetooth connection and the ShareMe function
 
DSC03852.jpg
 
 
Designed mainly as wireless headphones, the ShareMe Pro can be connected to a source via Bluetooth. For the first time pairing, you only need to press and hold the power button for a few seconds until the LED besides it flashes in red and blue. Enabling Bluetooth on your source devices and you will find the “Mixcder ShareMe Pro”, tapping or clicking on it and the connection will be instantly established.
 
If you have two sets of ShareMe Pro headphones and want to share audios from the same source with them, the connection will take a few more steps, but it is still very easy: press and hold the power buttons until the two sets of headphones are both in pairing mode (LEDs on these two headphones both flash in red and blue), a few seconds later the LED on one of these headphones will light in static blue, but the other still flashes. Now you just need to pair your source with this set of headphones. When both sets of headphones’ LEDs become static blue, you are able to share music with your partner.
 
Since I do not have two sets of ShareMe Pro, it is impossible for me to test how well the ShareMe function works on them. But from my experiences with my two sets of ShareMe 7 headphones, I am confident to expect that the sounds coming from the two sets of ShareMe Pro be perfectly in sync.
 
Also, Bluetooth connection is extremely solid between the source and the ShareMe Pro. I can leave my source in my bedroom and cook in the kitchen, which is a few walls and approximately 10 meters away from my bedroom, and still listening music with these headphones.
 
If the internal battery gives up, you can also connect the ShareMe Pro to your source with the Aux cable, which is included in the retail package.
 
 
Comfort and isolation
 
DSC03864.jpg
 
 
These headphones are extremely comfortable to wear, thanks to the soft ear cushions and the lightweight plastic material used for the chassis. I experienced very little discomfort after wearing them for 5 consecutive hours, watching 3 movies.
 
Although there is no active noise cancelling module on board, the ShareMe Pro still does an excellent job at isolating most of the sound from the surroundings. I have used them in a gym once, it could block out the noise from the treadmill, and people talking to their coaches.

The ShareMe Pro has a sound profile that is generally more appealing to bass-heads than audiophiles, in some way it even sounds like my Monster Inspiration. The bass is big and fat, and very well controlled. The Sub-bass could also reach very deep. In fact, the bass dominates the entire spectrum of these headphones and easily overwhelms the mids and treble. I do feel like that it slightly lacks in details and texture when compared to the other bass-heads headphones such as the Monster Inspiration and Beats Studio, but if you take prices into consideration, it isn’t really fair to compare a $50 headset to those priced many times higher.
 
The mids of the ShareMe Pro are a little bit recessed and muddy. Vocals generally sound veiled and a foot more distant than I would have preferred. When dealing with complex recordings, the sound could become very muddled.
 
The treble of these headphones is a shade darker than most of the high-end headphones I’ve listened to, and the treble extension isn’t really there.
 
These headphones are definitely not designed for dedicated music enthusiasts, unless you only stick to bass-centric recordings, otherwise the lack of clarity, texture and details in the mids and highs is going to drive an audiophile crazy. Personally, I believe those headphones are better suited for some random listening, such as watching TV, movies and YouTube videos.
 
 
Battery Life
 
Mixcder claims that the ShareMe Pro could offer more than 20 hours of battery life, and they are not exaggerating. In my personal experiences, using the ShareMe Pro on a daily basis, I only need to charge it once a week. Putting the hours of using the headphones upon one full charge together, the battery life of the ShareMe Pro is indeed close to 20 hours.
 
 
Conclusion
 
Priced at $59.99 per set on Amazon, the ShareMe Pro is marketing towards people who actually need the ShareMe function. If you are only purchasing one set of wireless headphones for yourself, there are many other options I could recommend over the ShareMe Pro, including the cheaper Ausdom M05. But if you want to try the ShareMe function and need something that is all-around better than the ShareMe 7, the ShareMe Pro is definitely a solid choice, only that you need to spend $20 more on each set.
Pros: Huge bass presence. Great battery life.
Cons: Huge bass presence.
Mixcder ShareMe Pro Bluetooth Headphone Quick Review by mark2410
 
Thanks to Mixcder for the sample.
 
Full review here http://www.head-fi.org/t/822083/mixcder-shareme-pro-bluetooth-headphone-review-by-mark2410
 
Brief:  Bluetooth bass monsters.
 
Price:  £40 or US$45
 
Specifications:  Bluetooth: Bluetooth V4.1+EDR, Bluetooth Distance: 10 Metres, Wearing Style: Over-the-Ear, Item Weight: 230g(8.45oz), Driver Size: 40mm (1.57 inches) Neodymium magnet, Frequency Response: 20Hz-20KHz, Microphone Remote: Yes, Charging Time: 2-2.5 hours, Support profile: HSP/HFP/A2DP/AVRCP
 
Accessories:  1 USB charging cable, 1 3.5 mm audio cable, 1 Quick start guide.
 
Build Quality:  Most pleasant, nicely put together and no imperfections that I could make out.
 
Isolation:  Not vastly much.  You could get by for out and about but I’d be weary of being that guy on a bus.  So not one for Tube or flight.  Naturally it’s with music playing sufficient to get yourself run over if you aren’t paying attention to traffic.
 
Comfort/Fit:  Great. The pads were nicely soft on my ears and while I wanted a breather after a few hours they were soft on the ear.
 
Aesthetics:  Mero than anything, they are a bit nondescript.  Nothing especially eye catching nor anything off-putting.  They are mostly matte black plastic so I found them reasonably pleasant to look at.
 
Sound:  There is no way around the fact that these are bass monsters.  They have gobs of bass and it’s overwhelming at times, oppressive, suffocating to the mid rand treble ranges.  The bass is the star of the show and it’s not in the least reticent about letting you know it.  Big bass cannons, monsters well and truly.  If you’re after something with huge bass and you want Bluetooth then you’re onto a winner with this one.  The bass is vast and ever present.  Its depth is a little so so in the lower reaches the bass is mostly in the middling and upper bass ranges where it dominates.  The bass influences the entire spectrum and does throw a bit of a veil over vocal details and treble.  It’s a not a detail orientated headphone and its softened treble is super highly forgiving of badly recorded, mastered or bad bit rate music.  Just the sort of thing many might want for charty top 40 stuff.  Gobs and bobs of big, weight, hearty, thickly warm bass.
 
Value:  Its got nice functionality, I like its controls, its got headset functionality and you can use it cable if that long 20 hour of use battery gives up.  So long as you want a beastly amount of bass youll be grand.
 
Pro’s:  Huge bass presence.  Great battery life.
 
Con’s:  Huge bass presence.

Pros: Great comfort - Good build and material quality - Price
Cons: Inconsistent connection quality with ShareMe feature
Greetings Head-fi!
 
Today we are going to be checking out the Mixcder ShareMe Pro, a Bluetooth headphone created with the aim of bringing listeners together.
 
I was first introduced to Mixcder through the ANC-G5, active noise canceling earphones. They greatly impressed me by offering up good sound quality, a nice design, solid material and build quality, and great low-frequency noise reduction. When Grace updated the ANC-G5 reviewer thread noting they were looking for people to cover the ShareMe Pro, I jumped at the opportunity.
 
The ShareMe Pro at first seems like a pretty basic budget headset, but with a few notable strengths; Bluetooth 4.1, and after only 2 hours of charging, 20 hours of play time. Conspicuously absent is aptX support. As we will find out later on, that doesn't really hurt as much as you might expect.
 
Disclaimer:
 
I would like to thank Grace and Mixcder for providing the ShareMe Pro in exchange for a fair and impartial review. I am not receiving any financial compensation for this review and all comments and views within are my honest opinions. They are not representative of Mixcder or any other entity.
 
The ShareMe Pro is currently retailing for 45.99 USD on Amazon.com at the time of this review. Check it out here.
 
A Little About Me:
 
Over the last couple years I decided to dive head first into the world of portable audio. After reading pretty much the entirety of IjokerI's multi-earphone review thread and being greatly inspired, I took a chance and started writing my own reviews. Fast forward a couple years and I've had the opportunity to write about some great products for wonderful companies like RHA, Havi, FiiO, NarMoo, Brainwavz, and Meze. I don't do it for money or free stuff, but because I enjoy it. If my reviews can help guide someone to an earphone that makes them happy, I'll consider that a job well done.
 
I intended to use my HTC One M8 as my primary device for testing but that didn't work out so well. As a result, my truly old Nexus S made a return to form and saved the day. Some wired testing was done with an XDuoo X3, but the majority of my listening was conducted via Bluetooth. I listen primarily to various EDM sub-genres (liquid drum and bass, breakbeat, drumstep, etc.), hip hop, and classic rock. When it comes to signature preference I tend to lean towards aggressive and energetic, but I try not to limit myself to one signature only. I also tend to listen at lower than average volumes.
 
Enough preamble. Let us dive into the good stuff shall we?
 

 
IMAG1301.jpg     IMAG1302.jpg     IMAG1303.jpg
 

 
Packaging and Accessories:
 
The ShareMe Pro arrived in some very basic packaging designed to be environmentally friendly. How do I know this? The "Environmental Protection Design" statement with a wonderfully stylized tree printed on the top flap is a dead giveaway.
 
This basic packaging consists of a straightforward cardboard box with limited coloring and printing. The front contains the Mixcder brand logo, the ShareMe logo, and notification that inside you will be receiving the ShareMe Pro model. The sides display the Mixcder logo and Shareme logos once again. Moving to the back you find the product specification printed in seven languages (English, German, Russian, French, Spanish, Italian, and Japanese). There are three icons printed above the specs that point out the Pro has rotating ear cups, 2,000 hours of standby time, and comfortable leather (they're not) earmuffs.
 
The package opens from the top to reveal a plastic tray which holds the ShareMe Pro. Underneath is an instruction booklet, basic audio cable terminated in standard 3.5mm jacks at either end, and a micro USB cable for charging. The audio cable is pretty standard and somewhat thin, clearly not meant to be used on the regular. The USB cable is of good quality, if not particularly noteworthy. The instruction manual is fairly comprehensive, covering everything from the packages contents to notification of Mixcder's one year warranty, details of which are here on their website.
 
Overall the Pro's packaging and presentation is very simple and straightforward. Unlike the ANC-G5's package which has a more premium feel, the Pro's package does only what it needs to do; protect the product and nothing more.
 
Build, Comfort, Isolation, Usability:
 
The ShareMe Pro's light 250 gram shell is made almost entirely of plastic, but they still exude a feeling of quality and durability. The primary surface of the cups and lower portion of the headband are presented in a clean, semi-matte finish. The outer facing portion of the ear cup is a shiny slab of plastic with the ShareMe logo and a printed design. Fit and finish is excellent with a complete absence of sharp edges or poorly fitting parts.
 
Within the generously padded and exceptionally comfortable headband is a very flexible band of steel. This is not a headband you will ever have to worry about breaking.
 
The pleather ear pads are surprisingly nice for something in this price range. They are very soft and plush, if a touch shallow. Mixcder attempts to address this issue by gluing some padding to the inner portion of the cup. This doesn't necessarily help out the sound quality any, but it does make the Pro more comfortable since your ears press against soft foam instead of hard plastic.
 
Isolation on the ShareMe Pro is limited at best. Pretty much all outside noise bleeds in without much opposition. The Pro doesn't offer a firm clamp and depending on your head size and/or shape, might not seal fully around the bottom of the cup due to the limited vertical pivot of the ear cups. Should you find the clamping force too light, the band can be carefully bent to permit a more firm grip on your head.
 
The media controls on the ShareMe Pro are not the most user friendly. It can be a difficult to select the right button due to the way they are clustered, and as a result I found myself pausing when wanting to skip songs, or prompting a phone call when trying to adjust volume. A simple solution to this problem would be to slide the power button a few millimeters forward on the ear cup so that it is more distinctly placed and separate from the volume controls as it is on the ShareMe 7. On the flipside, the forward/reverse buttons could be paired, and the play/pause button moved forward on the housing mirroring the new placement of the power button. It would also be nice if the 3.5mm input was angled downwards so as not to put so much strain on the cable if you choose to use them wired. That or include a cable with a 90 degree jack instead.
 
Battery life is awesome, easily hitting the claimed 20 hours. I probably got a little more out of it due to the low volumes at which I usually listen. The two hour charge time is also spot on.
 
Overall the ShareMe Pro is a very well built, comfortable earphone that doesn't do much to isolate outside noise. Battery life is outstanding. Button placement could definitely be improved and I know Mixcder can do it. Just look back to their older ShareMe 7 model.

Connection Quality and ShareMe Feature;
 
The ShareMe Pro features Bluetooth 4.1 and a rock solid connection, but not the greatest range I've experienced. They were fine for walking around my apartment, but beyond that things would get spotty real quick. As long as you don't venture too far from the source, the Pro will treat you well. It doesn't skip or drop connection, and the sound quality remains consistent. Some additional range would be nice, but for the majority of users it will be more than enough.
 
The ShareMe feature is the primary reason to buy these earphones, or at least that's what I would expect given their name; ShareMe Pro. How did this feature work? Great, on some devices.
 
It is extremely easy to pair two units. Just hold the power button on each until they both turn on. Keep holding until the indicator LED on the earcup starts cycling between red and blue, then let go. The units will locate each other and automatically connect. One earphone will be selected as the primary and announced as the left channel. The other will be chosen as a secondary and announced as the right channel. I don't know what determines which earphone will be the primary, but I sure couldn't figure it out and the instruction manual didn't help. Sometimes my pair would be selected as the left channel, other times (usually) my fiancee's pair would be selected. It was extremely inconsistent. I would try turning on one pair slightly earlier, but that didn't seem to do anything. Luckily the media controls on both earphones will work to control the device so in the end I guess it doesn't really matter which earphone is selected as the primary channel.
 
Once connected, I found that the primary earphone would work as expected. Great connection, full media controls; no issues whatsoever. The secondary earphone? On some devices it would work quite well. On others, forget about it. Frequent connection loss was the name of the game when using my HTC One M8, and it happened enough to make the feature unusable. Through my 1st Gen Motorola Moto G, they worked well but the secondary earphone would drop it's connection every once in a while. To my surprise, my ancient Samsung Nexus S worked the best, by far. It output the cleanest sound and provided the most stable connection. In fact, it is the only device that has yet to drop connection once throughout weeks of use. Not bad.
 
When push comes to shove the ShareMe Pro works very well as an entry level, standalone Bluetooth headphone. The ShareMe feature is awesome in concept and when it works it is pretty cool, but that's the problem; when it works. Since two of the three sources I used failed to work consistently, I suspect the quality of your ShareMe experience will be overly dependent on the source, 
 
Sound Quality:
 
Wired vs. Wireless: I didn't find there was much of a drop in sound quality when going from wired to wireless, which was somewhat surprising given the lack of aptX support. There was a VERY MINUTE amount of static in the background when running the Pro wirelessly, but this was completely overshadowed when you had music playing at anything but the lowest possible volume. Wired, of course there was no static and they seemed slightly cleaner sounding. Bass had a bit more kick, and the midrange had a touch more presence. Any changes heard were fairly minor and in the end, mostly inconsequential.
 
The ShareMe Pro has it's share of positives (build quality, comfort, connection strength) and negatives (ShareMe feature inconsistency, media control placement), but in the end sound quality is almost always the deciding factor on whether or not a product is worth your time.
 
While the ShareMe Pro's signature isn't going to be for everyone I find it's warm, bass-heavy sound to be very engaging and pleasant, easily deserving of their 45.99 USD price tag. They don't have a massive soundstage and they're not detail monsters with absolute clarity. What they are is a bassy pair of cans that your average bass-loving consumer would be happy to own. I think this picture from Mixcder's websites sums up the ShareMe Pro quite well;
 
shareme-pro-bass.jpg

Mid-bass is a bit excessive, but for the most part keeps out of the midrange. It's punchy and has the right sort of presentation for hip hop, EDM, and top 20 pop music. When the bass drops it lingers for just the right length of time and if serious subbass is needed, the ShareMe Pro can bring the goods. Their 40mm drivers can move enough air to give you a fairly visceral experience.
 
Their midrange is good and gets the job done, but it's not what you buy these for. It's slightly dialed back but not to the point where you have issues hearing lyrics. They are slightly veiled so you won't be hearing every little nuance and detail. I found both female and male vocals to sound fairly natural and neither stood out. On tracks like Bang Bang featuring Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, who all have their own unique sound, none of the three stood out more or sounded cleaner than the others. The duo of Aseop Rock and Rob Sonic was the same throughout their Hail Mary Mallon collaborations. Both sounded fine, neither standing out.
 
Treble is smooth and relaxed, a little too much of both for my preferences. Still, this ensures the ShareMe Pro is entirely inoffensive and plays well with even the most poorly mastered tracks, or low quality files. As noted earlier, the Pro is not a detail monster. Their treble presentation isn't going to convince you otherwise.
 
The Pro's soundstage is typical of a closed back headphone. It's not large, and the relaxed treble ensure this is known. Imaging is done fairly well given the limited space your music has to play within, but these isn't much going on here that's noteworthy, either in a positive or negative way. I guess overall that's a good thing.
 
The ShareMe Pro offers up a fun sound that works well in the real world. In the quiet of your home the overly boosted mid-bass can intrude and hinder your enjoyment. In the Pro's ideal environment, such as a mall or busy downtown street, their signature works well. The limited isolation and boosted midbass cancel each other out presenting you with a fun, bassy set of cans that present you with a smooth, fatigue free sound.

Vs. Mixcder ShareMe 7 (35.99 USD)
 
The ShareMe 7 is one of Mixcder's other earphones featuring the ShareMe tech, the third being the ShareMe 5 which I have yet to try. While I feel the Pro overall is a step up from the 7, that statement does not apply to every aspect. Let's start with the improvements.
 
Build quality and comfort goes to the Pro, hands down. The ShareMe 7, especially in the white/blue combination, looks and feels like the budget set it is. It's not anywhere as solid and durable as the Pro with creaks and snaps popping up as you move them about. The headband's padding is nice and cushy, but the earpads are somewhat stiff and hard to describe as comfortable. The earcups only pivot vertically with no horizontal twisting so it's a challenge to seat them comfortably. Not an issue whatsoever on the Pro.
 
The ShareMe Pro's controls also work with more urgency. Increasing the volume on the 7 is a lesson in tedium and patience. Press the button, wait a second, press the button, wait a second, rinse and repeat until you get the volume you want. Hit the button to pause your music, and nearly two seconds later it pauses. Not cool. It's quicker to just pull out your phone. The Pro's controls are noticeably more responsive across the board, though their placement isn't ideal given how easy it is to hit the wrong button.
 
Where I think the ShareMe Pro truly took a slight step back, or at least to the side, is in sound quality. The ShareMe 7 is still a bassy earphone, but it better balances mid- and sub-bass, has improved treble extension and presence, and lacks the same level of midrange veil. The only issue with the ShareMe 7 is they have a slightly hollow sound, probably due to the quality of plastic used on the earcups.
 
Everything else I found to be comparable. Battery life, connection quality, and the ShareMe experience were all mirrored.
 
In the end I feel the vastly improved build quality and comfort of the Pro more than makes up for the slightly more balanced sound quality of the 7. Since the Pro shares a housing that is nearly identical to Ausdom's M05 model, I'm sure many of the mods used to improve those headphones can be applied to further improve the Pro's performance.
 
Overall:
 
While I found the ShareMe Pro's namesake feature to be somewhat underwhelming due to how poorly it worked across a variety of sources, everything else about them was great. They are exceptionally well built, their Bluetooth connection was rock solid, they are very comfortable, and while they don't sound amazing, their signature is entertaining. I would love to see Mixcder work to improve the ShareMe feature because when it's stable it is very useful, especially if traveling with a friend or significant other or watching a movie.
 
What it all comes down to is this. If you're interested in the Pro primarily for it's ShareMe function, based on my experiences and the inconsistent performance I ran into, I have a hard time recommending them. You will have a great time if the Pro plays nicely with your device, as it did with my Nexus S, or, you could have a horrible time as I did when pairing them with the HTC One M8. If the ShareMe feature is of primary interest maybe give the ShareMe 7 a try first, then upgrade if they work well with your device(s).
 
If you simply want a good Bluetooth headphone, enjoy a bassy signature, and the ShareMe feature doesn't factor into your purchasing decision, the Mixcder ShareMe Pro is easily worth your time and money.
 
Thanks again to Grace and Mixcder for the opportunity to review the ShareMe Pro, and thank you for reading!

Pros: Build Quality. Battery life. Bluetooth features. Bass. Comfort & Fit.
Cons: Bloated mids and subdued highs that require EQ.

Introduction:
 
A little while ago I got the chance to test Mixcder ShareMe Pro. I like to thank Ausdom and Grace for generously provided me with a sample. I've been rocking them for a while now, and still am while writing this review. The Mixcder ShareMe Pro is currently sold from different places, including amazon, for $45.99.

Disclosure:
 
After applying to the review thread I received the ShareMe Pro free of charge and was asked to write my opinion about these Bluetooth headphones. Usually I buy a product and review them according to how they suit my personal preferences. In this instance however, I will try to keep things more general since this review is about the product and not about my personal audio adventures. The rating is based on the whole product as a combination of features and comfort, and not solely on audio quality alone. I used some pictures from the Mixcder website since I lack a quality camera. I am not affiliated with Mixcder and all opinions are my own.
 
Setup: Connected via Bluetooth to my ZTE Axon mini smartphone as well as via cable with my laptop combined with the ZuperDAC or Dragonfly v1.5.
Music: Spotify Extreme & 44.1khz/16bit Flac.
Burn in: 30+ hours
My acknowledged bias: Music preference (Indie/alternative/rock), preferred sound signature (neutral with a touch of subbass) and previous audio gear (see profile).

The headphones come in simple plain box, nothing fancy here. The accessories provided are very welcome. It’s great the headphones charge by micro-usb since, since my phone uses the same connection. The provided aux cable is very useful for DAC-coupling.
 
Build, design and fit:
While the package feels cheap and simple, the headphones absolutely don’t. They are top notch, nothing you would expect from a sub $50 device. They feel solid in the hand, light on your head (250 grams) and flexible while handling. A nice detail is the microphone grill, just don't expect miracles from the microphone quality. The buttons on the headphone work like advertised. The cups have nice soft faux leather pads and are able to turn 90 degrees so they can be packed flat in a bag. The headband feels strong and solid, no squeaking or rambling. The comfort is likewise fantastic. You can put them on your head and forget they are there. The clamping force is precisely right; they won’t fall off your head in the gym while refraining from deforming your skull shape. My ears fully fit inside of the soft and comfortable ear cups. They do get hot after a while, but its burning summer here, so that could be just the weather. Next to these headphones, my Shure SRH840 feel clumsy.

Bluetooth
The unique feature of the Mixcder ShareMe Pro is in the name; you’re able to share the same music with two pairs of headphones from one source. Great if you’re in the gym with a mate or at the beach with the missus. Turn both devices on then connect your device. Whether you’ve got a smartphone which lacks a headphone jack, or a mate which lacks music taste, this feature is quite useful. I always carry a splitter in my backpack for this sole reason. What does bother me however, is that there is a delay in sound. This means you cannot share the headphones for watching movies since audio will look out of sync. A huge miss for an otherwise great feature. The Bluetooth connection itself is very stable and the battery lasts forever. I didn’t exactly clock the time, but they do well reach over the 20 hours mentioned in the specifications.
 
Sound:
I’m not going to beat around the bush here, I was disappointed when I took them for their first test drive. They sounded dark, veiled and muffled. When I further inspected them, I found a cloth in front of the drivers. The first thing you need to do when you buy these headphones is to rip these cloths out. The muffled sound vastly improves, but they remain veiled and dark.  
 
 

 
 
Treble: While sounding accurate, the highs are subdued. They lack sparkle and detail. The hi-hat might get lost in the mix at times. Still, the highs might be acceptable for the non-critical listener.
 
Mids: Disappointing. A boost in the mids makes everything sound quite veiled and congested. Voices sound muddy. The drum-kit sounds flat and lack any reverb whatsoever. A hit on the snare-drum reminds me of hitting a cardboard box. Pianos in particular sound like they are being played under water. Surprisingly, guitars sometimes sound ok, but when the music gets more busy, they quickly get muddy.
 
Bass: There is an obvious emphasis on the bass here, but that is a good thing since it is very well done. The bass is round, controlled and very capable. The sub-bass reaches quite deep and has a nice warm tone to it. It could be a bit more textured, but that’s nit-picking and too much to ask from a sub $50 device. Overall, the bass is excellent and definitely the strongest point of their sound.
 
Luckily not all is lost, since they respond quite well to an equalizer, even over Bluetooth. Using Poweramp Alpha, I decreased the mids, and boosted the highs. The sound clears up and details are retrieved, while the great bass is maintained. Voices and instruments sound like they should again. It seems that the used drivers are quite capable since the sound is actually very enjoyable like this, but the tuning is just wrong. The sound is not on the level of let’s say an equally priced Creative Aurvana Live!, but for a headphone with these features and comfort, it’s great.
 
In case you want to try my EQ settings, here it is in Poweramp alpha:

 
Connect the Shareme pro with bluetooth to your phone and go to the equalizer option of the Poweamp app.
There you'll see switches, don't touch the switches, but tap under or above it to move the switches.
 
31hz: Not adjusted
62hz: 1 tap down
125hz: 2 taps down
250hz: 3 taps down
500hz: 2 taps down
1khz: 1 tap down
2khz: 1 tap up
4khz: 3 taps up
8khz: 2 taps up
16khz: 1 tap up
 
 
Conclusion
It is a genuine tragedy that the tuning of these headphones is lacking, they tick all the right boxes to be the best sub $50 headphone. The headphone looks and feels very premium, offers great comfort and mobility, and have great Bluetooth functionality. If you don’t mind equalizing the sound, I can even recommend these headphones for less critical listening. They are a great fitness companion. I do find myself picking these up when I’m doing chores in and around the house. Personally I use too much Spotify to use these as a daily driver, since the Spotify app doesn’t offer an EQ setting at the moment.
 
Tl;dr: For less than $50 you’ll get an extremely well build headphones with all the right features, which is unfortunately let down by the veiled and congested sound. They do respond well to EQ if you’re willing to go down that road.

100+ Head-Fier
Pros: Unique ShareMe function, comfort, battery life, price,
Cons: audio stream delay, so-so sound signature

The mixcder ShareMe Pro headphones, besides being a pair of reasonably priced, US$ 46, bluetooth, full-size headphone, it has a secret feature: If you have two of these, you can linked them together, and two people and listen to the same music/sound source at the same time. With two kids in my family sharing one iMac, there is a constant headphone usage dilemma going on. They need to plug and unplug their own personal headphones as they use the computer. Then if they want to watch a youTube together, they have to unplug the headphone to use the speakers. A lot of audio jack action reaching behind the iMac. Having two pairs of ShareMe Pro headphone may just solve my problem.
 

Unboxing and Construction

 
I am slightly spoiled by the mixcder ANC-G5 active noise canceling headphones’  premium packaging which I also have. The ShareMe Pro in contrast arrived in a simple box with a basic plastic tray holding the headphones. When I open the box, the included cables were placed in the bottom of the tray, promptly dropping onto the floor. One positive is that it does come with a reasonably length USB charging cable, as well as a 3.5 audio cable for connecting the headphones directly to a earphone out port.
 
The construction of the headphones however are very good. At this price point, the headphone is mostly made from plastic. The adjustable ear cups rides on a steel band with plastic rails in the middle. The ear cups are covered in a very soft padded leatherette ear pads. The headband is also covered in a similarly padded material.
 

Comfort

 
These headphones are very comfortable. The clamping force is low. The ear cups swivel just over 90 degrees — from flat for storage, to just over 90 to  conform to different head shapes. I find that I can wear them for a long time without problem.
 

Sound Quality

 
These headphones uses 40mm drivers with 32 ohms impedance. Being bluetooth, I expected them to be driven nicely by the large internal batteries. I was slightly disappointed with the overall sound quality even after 20+ hours of burning in. I am listening via bluetooth using my Retina Macbook Pro playing iTunes music m4a files.
 
When I am listening to simpler jazz vocal pieces: Vienna Teng’s Eric Song, Autumn Leaves by Partricia Barber, Save Me by Aimee Allen, they sounded over during the quieter passages. Once the vocal and instruments play together, the over sound became muddled. I moved on to some classic rock tracks like Angie by the Stones, and With or Without You by U2. Similarly the headphones seem to get overwhelmed and lost clarity.
 
I also tried the same tracks with the headphone connected via the audio cable. There is no any noticeable difference.
 
I resorted to add EQ to the audio — boosting the 1K and 2K band fixes the sound enough so that it is passable. However I don’t think these will be my goto audio bluetooth headphones. But it is fine for casual listening. My kids find them perfectly usable for youTube listening.
 

Design Notes

 
I have some minor usability issue with these headphones.The headphones have volume and power buttons on the left ear cup, and track forward/backward/pause buttons on the right. These buttons feel a bit cheap when you press them. And the order of the volume buttons are: volume up / volume down / power. I really would prefer the power being in the middle. At the beginning I keep pressing the power button when I want to turn down the volume. Finally I realized that the volume buttons have little dimples on them, so I can to feel for them and not press the power button by mistake. But that is more work than necessary.
 
If you ever want to use the headphones with wires, the jack on the ear cup is at an angle, so the audio wire sticks out toward the back awkwardly. However I do not see why you would need to use them with wires as the batteries performance is great.
 

Batteries

 
I normally do a charge time and discharge time test. But these headphones have such large batteries that I have yet to get a measurable discharge time. That is, once charged, they play for days, which is wonderful. The only draw back is that there is no way to chat the battery levels. So sometime in the future I expect they will just stop working and I have to charge them back up.
 

Bluetooth performance

 
These are headphones with bluetooth 4.1. The range is similar to other bluetooth headphones that I have. With line of sight, 20+ feet is fine. With two walls in between, the headphones will cut out at about two rooms apart on my first floor. It is nice that the audio will simply stop when it is out of range, so you won’t get static or random sound. Once back in range, the audio will restart nicely. The headphones do not seems to support multi-point connection. So you can only pair them to one source.
 
The link two pairs of ShareMe Pro together, I find that the best way is to move away from all other bluetooth sources. Then I can put both headphones in pairing mode, and they did pair with each other automatically. Once that is done, you need to make a note as to which one of the two is the primary one, because that is the one that needed to be pair to your audio source.
 
This is important because there are times you only want to use one pair of headphones. In that case only the primary pair works.
 
Finally, perhaps because of the sharing feature, there is a noticeable delay in the audio stream. When I watch a movie, the audio stream is perhaps 100ms to 200ms slower than the video steam. It can be annoying for watching movies or TV shows. I tried re-pairing the headphones several times, as well as with different computers, and the result is the same. I hope mixcder will come out with a software fix in the future.
 

Conclusion

 
Given the sharing function and the price point, I think it is a unique product that has a place for a family wanting to share audio in private. My kids are using them as I write this review watching a youTube together.
 
Note: I received the product from the manufacturer at a reduced price for review, but the opinions are entirely mine.
