Headphones are a great option for any one, especially someone working from home. I’m always on the hunt for some good headphones that are comfortable to wear for a long time without straining my head. MPOW reached out to have their H17 headphones reviewed. Overall, for the price point they’re decent in terms of weight and sound. The bass is nice, also. Loud sounds (like gamers yelling) seems to make them vibrate too much to handle and the ANC noise-canceling feature makes a annoying feedback sound, which essentially makes it unusable.
However, if you just want something cheap to wear that won’t strain your head, this might be a good fit. Let’s dive into the specs.
Using the MPOW H17 headphones
As soon as you take the MPOW H17 headphones out of the box, you’ll need to charge them for a bit before your first use. Once you want to use them, you have the choice between Bluetooth and wired mode. Bluetooth worked great and connected quickly and stayed that way throughout all of my testing for over a week.
These headphones also come with a carrying bag, which is nice to keep all of your wires and cords together either in your house or on the go. These are built well and you can tell they should withstand some long-term use.
After 10 minutes of charging you can get two hours of playtime, but you should wait the 45 minutes to get a full charge the first time you charge it. There’s also an alternative wired mode if you don’t want to wait for a full charge. Overall, you’ll get about 45 hours of playtime when you use them from a full charge.
The bass on these headphones is the most impressive. Keeping that in mind, audio can sound distorted, especially when it gets loud. The bass is impressive and close to some of the more expensive headphones I own. If you were just going to listen to music while you work and want something light, that’s what makes these headphones stand out more than others I’ve tried through the years.
While the sound isn’t the greatest, I do have to say the comfort due to how light they are is nice. I have a ton of over the ear headphones I have used that are made out of metal which makes them excessively heavy. Or, they have clamping pressure which makes them push hard on your head. In that regard, these are a great alternative. The foam isn’t the most comfortable foam I have felt, though. It’s pretty firm, but there’s a chance it will get looser with time. I just haven’t owned them long enough to figure out if that will happen or not.
These headphones are on the smaller side, so if you have a big head you’ll want to look at some other kinds.
