Through the years of writing for Dragonblogger, I’ve reviewed a handful of MixCDer products. Both the E9 and the MS301 were both great and I still use them both to this day, so I was happy to get a chance to review the newest model: the E10. Overall, these headphones have incredible sound quality but are on the heavier side with smaller ear cups. Depending on what you’re looking for, this is either not a big deal or a deal-breaker, but if you’re still on the fence, let’s dive into the specs to see if it has the features you’re looking for in headphones.
Changes from the E9’s
Compared to the E9’s, the 10 has a few tweaks:
- Bluetooth 5.0
- New carrying case
- Faster/better charging speeds
- Metal outer ear casing and overall stronger build
Sound and Noise Cancellation
The sound on the Mixcder E10’s are incredible. I’ve always been happy with the sound quality of MixCDer’s products, and this is no exception. The bass is booming and audio sounds clear. Both booming hyped-up songs, rock songs, and podcasts sound great on these. The bass isn’t too booming and can still handle the highs in a lot of songs without sounding shrill. The noise cancelation is also one of the most impressive parts of these headphones, as I can barely hear anything around me when there is sound playing.
These headphones have dual 40mm Neodymium Iron Boron dynamic drivers, which give them the sound quality. The biggest feature to this headphone is that you don’t notice when the noise cancelation feature is on.
The microphone isn’t too impressive on these, so if you want to use a pair for talking often, I’d certainly look into another pair. I won’t be deducting points for this because these types of headphones are almost never ideal for talking.
Comfort of the Mixcder E10
Overall, the E10’s are comfortable although they’re a bit heavy compared to other headphones with a similar build. There is metal throughout the build of it, which gives it the added weight. On one hand, this adds some stability to the overall make of the headphones but it does add some weight. They do sit against my ears, so if you’re a person who likes to have your whole ear inside the headphone, you’ll want to find a different pair.
Battery, Connectivity, and Bluetooth
On a lot of noise-canceling headphones, you have to manually adjust the noise-canceling feature on and off. If you forget to turn it off, you’ll quickly run out of battery on accident. With the E10 headphones, the noise-cancellation turns off on its own when you shut the headphones down. It’s just a slight tweak, but a massive improvement if you use headphones often. The battery lasts between 25 and 30 hours (although it says 30 hours on the box).
They connect right away as soon as I turn them on, which isn’t surprising considering all the headphones I’ve had from MixCDer has an excellent connection rate. I’ve been testing them for a few weeks now and not once have they lost connection.
With the improved charging, you can now get three hours of playtime with only five to eight minutes of charging. If you’re crunched for charging time, that’s a huge improvement.
