This review is from: Mpow PisCes Neckband Bluetooth 4.0+EDR Wireless Headphones Universal apt-X A2DP Hands-free Stereo Earphones Earbuds Headsets W/Microphones Noise Reduction for iPhone 6S 6 Plus 5S 4S Galaxy S6 edge etc
Pros: I received these free for review purposes. Currently, I have a set of MPOW swift earbuds that I use daily (easily the best earbuds I’ve ever used). I have always been less of a fan of headsets that that wrap around your neck, so I wasn't sure if I would find these comfortable, but wanted to try them out. After using them, I found them to be very, very comfortable, one of the most comfortable headsets I have ever used.
The buttons are on the neckband, and the mic is right under your mouth. This and the noise cancelation feature make every word crystal clear and allow your callers to hear you clearly and distinctly. The Pisces is an attractive looking device, the controls are easy to access and identify. The earbuds connect to the neck band magnetically (an award winning idea as they don’t dangle when being stored). Also, they are very light weight when placed in the ear. When you receive a call, the Pisces alerts you by vibrating and the quality of calls is tremendous.
Sound quality is excellent. The bass is clean and clear. Music is vibrant across the entire spectrum. They are capable of playing at loud volumes, though that is not how tested I them. BUT WAIT! There appears to be an undocumented feature: It would appear there is a loudness function or feature. By holding down the volume button until is beeps, it appears to change the sound of the headset. It cycles between ‘flat / a little loudness / more loudness / and too much loudness for my tastes’. This may explain some other reviews where the user stated it sounded muddy. Personally, I like it flat or the first setting (depending on what I’m listening to).
I found the battery to last around 2 business days (mostly music listening). Pairing was easy and it connected to my phone instantly. It is supposed to connect to a second Bluetooth, but I did not try that. Multiple sized earbuds and a charging cord round out the accessories.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I’d give these 4 – 4.5 stars. They are one of the best headsets I have ever used. If not for my MPOW Swifts, they’d be number 1. I personally like the light weight, and with noise cancelation they compete really well against more expensive models. I highly recommend this headset.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Mpow@ Swift Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Stereo Sweatproof Sport Headphones Earbuds Earphone with AptX,Mic Hands-free Calling for iphone 6 6 Plus 5 5c 5s 4s ipad Samsung Galaxy and Other Android Cell Phones
Pros: Full disclosure: I received these ear buds at no charge from Mpow for consideration of a fair review.
Let’s start with the pairing process: this took less than one minute. As the brief instruction manual states: “press the MPOW button for about 5 seconds”. Once the red and blue lights are flashing alternately, go into pairing mode on the device you wish to pair. Select “MPOW Swift”; that’s it. Time to enjoy your earbuds.
Sound – probably the most import quality. In short, THESE ARE AMAZING!!! As someone who listens to music all day while programming, these are significantly better than the wireless over-the-ear headphones I was using and better than any wired earbuds I have used. In testing, I wanted to expose them to a variety of music. So to test with harder stuff, what better than Metallica – Sandman and One. Good bass response and clear highs. Clear, crisp and full throughout the spectrum (enjoy the riffing on One). At the other end of the spectrum, I used some Jazz/Fusion to test dynamic range and fidelity. Jean Luc Ponty’s Renaissance and Cosmic Messenger deliver startling reproductions of the violin, piano and synthesizers. Return to Forever’s Duel of the Jester and the Tyrant features the keyboard work of Chick Corea and guitar of Al di Meola. Both artists’ work was reproduced with superb fidelity and clarity. The sound quality was amazing (think back to 80’s headphones and CD’s – now remind yourself you’re listening to digital music on your phone or iPod). Various tracks from Fleetwood Mac, Supertramp, Steely Dan, Yes, Transatlantic, Genesis and the Eagles rounded out the Pop/ Rock test. Throughout all of the music, there was a level of clearness, precision and lucidity usually not found at this price point.
The MPOW Swift earbuds deliver unbelievable bang for the buck. The earbuds are marked with a 'L’ and ‘R’ on the inside. Putting the bud in the correct ear is simple enough. They come with multiple sized buds along with different sized ear attachments.
After using them for 6+ hours at work, the battery will last longer than the business day. Once adjusted, they are very comfortable. For those who thought they could use more “bass”, try adjusting the equalizer in the music app you are using to play your music. Depending on what I am listening to and at what volume, sometimes I use the EQ and sometimes I turn the EQ off.
Lastly, no test would be complete without placing some phone calls. Answering is a simple push of the power button. The same button pushed again will disconnect the call. All parties I spoke with stated I sounded clear, the sound through the earbuds was sufficiency clear-cut.
Cons: One minor ding is the less than functional manual. It does not detail how to change the ear buds or ear size attachments. Although once you have them in your hand, it is pretty apparent. I find them very comfortable and I am wearing them as I write this.
Other Thoughts: I find them very comfortable and I am wearing them as I write this. All in all I believe the represent a good value for Bluetooth ear buds.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: In a word OUTSTANDING!!! Installation is plug & play. The mouse is incredibly comfortable. I have used ergonomic mice for years to prevent the return of tendonitis. I recently replaced my Anker® Vertical Ergonomic Optical Mouse with the new Anker 2.4G wireless vertical mouse. The wireless functions are great no interference, the mouse is adjustable to 800 / 1200 / 1600 dpi. The comfort is outstanding, even better than the older Anker® Vertical Ergonomic Optical Mouse, and at $20.00 it was a great bargain too boot. The Anker 2.4G wireless vertical mouse is installed on my home PC and I have found NO issues with using any of my current software.
Other Thoughts: Note: In my office I have an Evoluent 4, comparing the two mice I’d rank the Anker as more comfortable and easier to use. In addition, after 2 years of use the plastic on the Evoluent feels sticky and rough. I will be replacing the office mouse with an Anker 2.4G wireless vertical mouse.
Lastly, if anyone is thinking about testing out an ergonomic mouse to see if they like it, this is perfect!!! It is comfortable and durable to use every day and is a bargain compared to most of the ergonomic mice on the market.
