TL;DR The sound quality and features packed in these headphones is absurd for a price tag of only $50!
I’m not going to lie, after the issues with the Wyze Sensors, the Deadbolt, and the Pan Cam, I was feeling pretty jaded with Wyze. However, these headphones are the real deal! I can’t even begin to fathom how they packed all of this functionality into something with only a $50 price tag. This is my brief review after having and using them all day today.
Noise Cancellation-Sure, these may not cancel as much noise as an ultra high-end pair of cans, but they silence almost all of the everyday noises around my house, even with no other music playing through them. Like many, I work from home which means I’ve got kids, a wife, and two dogs making noise all day long. I found myself with my new Wyze headphones on and no music playing simply to work in silence. I walked into the bedroom where a TV was going, a speaker was playing music, and one of my kids was hooting and hollering and all I heard was the faintest voice of my rambunctious toddler.
Fit/Wearability-They are a little on the heavy side, but after playing with the adjustable headband I found a comfortable spot where I could have them on and not even realize I had them on. The cups seal great, however, if you have ears that border on the large side, I could see how the fit might not be the best and cause some discomfort.
App/Smart Features-I use the Google Assistant via my Pixel 5 as my smart assistant and had no problems prompting it to listen and understand a command via either method on the headphones. Having a built in equalizer in the app is a nice touch as well, however, it would be nice to have more presets available that were more geared to different genres of music. Or, provide the option to save multiple Custom profiles to remedy that request.
Function-I listened to several hours of music, playing with the equalizer and am very pleased at the rich sound the headphones put out. I also took several work calls using these and the folks on the other end of the call said my voice was crisp, clear, and easily understood. Combine that with the fact that I’m not fighting with other outside noise to hear what someone else is saying, these are going to be my new go-to for conference calls.
Well done Wyze, well done! I don’t even want to know what kind of deals with the devil had to be made to get these out the door and into consumer’s hands for $50!
