Performance

Supporting a frequency response of 20Hz and a packing in a 420mAh battery, these pair of over the ear headphones allow you to enjoy your music for up to 20hours without needing to plugin. And equipped with Bluetooth 4.1, it allows you to move up to 10 metres away from your device without cutting off the audio. This makes for a great pair of headphones for both a trip or for a walk from school to home. However, if you do need something with greater battery life, the Cowin E7 and the Cowin E7 Pro are worth checking out, both of which also support active noise cancelling. If you want another pair of headphones that support noise cancelling, look at our page on how to win a pairable planet NC3008B active noise-cancelling headphones too.

Even if the battery does run out, the Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones come with an audio cable that allows you to listen directly through the device’s power, rather than relying on the 420mAh battery which can be charged via a USB cable through a micro USB port. Apart from being a pair of Bluetooth headphones unlike the Panasonic RP-HT161-K, the Mpow 059 also provides you with what really matters in a pair of over-ear headphones: that is, good sound quality for the price point, balanced audio levels, a moderate bass, and crisp voices. These qualities are similar to what you’ll find in its cousin the Mpow H10.

Design

When it comes to your comfort, as the LSTN cherry wood Troubadours headphones have, the Mpow 059 Bluetooth headphones do not disappoint, with leather ear cups which are great for a short duration of listening. But, if you end up wearing headphones for a long period of time, you may feel uncomfortable at a certain point. Other than that, the build itself is made out of plastic which although makes it light at about 0.9 pounds, gives a sort of cheap feel. Surely you won’t get the solid premium build of more expensive headphones, but it is an acceptable compromise for this price point. But, do keep in mind that the plastic may catch onto fingerprints which may turn out to be a problem for many people. However, you do get a stainless steel slider headband, allowing you to adjust it to your needs, increasing your comfort without damaging the headphones over time.

Moving onto the functionality, the Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones have some buttons on the side which allow you to receive calls, play/pause as well as skip tracks without having to reach for your phone every time.

Value

At just around $30, the Mpow 059 Bluetooth headphones are indeed one of the most budget-friendly headphones out there. But just because it is priced lower than most headphones, doesn’t mean its quality dropped. With both wireless capability and good sound quality, the Mpow 059 stood out to be the best selling headphones on amazon com. And so, providing both a decent audio experience and a convenient user experience, the Mpow 059 delivers everything the majority of people ask for, at the best possible value.

Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones Wrap Up

The Mpow 059 may not support active noise canceling like the Cowing E7 nor does it provide the best sound quality out there. But providing people with a convenient user experience, a wireless capability unlike the Panasonic RP-HT161-K, good sound quality for the price packed into a moderately comfortable design, the Mpow 059 stands out to be the best over the ear headphones for the money.
