The latest offering from SOUL is their new emotion max ANC headphones which I have been testing for a while now and they are a very worthy contenter in the market for the price and come with all the features you would expect to do so and more. Well presented too with the packaging this was a good start to the overall experience.
Check out the unboxing here and see what you get for your money ..,
Built for the modern consumer, EMOTION MAX allows wearers to effortlessly switch back and forth between Normal, Active Noise Cancellation and Audio Transparency mode, while Bluetooth Multipoint Technology empowers users to stream music, answer calls, and receive notifications from two separate devices at once. Not only can consumers expect SOUL’s signature precision sound, complete with a powerful 40mm driver and AptX and AAC codec, but they will have clear-sounding calls and voice communication with the built-in Qualcomm® CvC™ 8.0 (Clear Voice Capture). EMOTION MAX also boasts up to 38 hours of music, entertainment, and talk time (24 hours with ANC function on).
Comfort and build
These are very light in comparison to some headphones recently tested here and are robust, they are made of mostly plastic but still strong and no creaks as seen in the unboxing and that is a good sign. These can be worn for hours on end too with no issues with that head clamping experience you might find on some headphones and your ears do not sweat either.
The controls are great and easy to use and after a while using them blindly is fine too, all the controls are on one side which I like and prefer and the keys are slightly raised and all commands can be done from the one side which we go through in the video below it is a simple affair and executed well..
Well this is the bit most people just read reviews for and it is good to report all is good here, One thing I would like is for soul to have an app in the near future to enhance the experience even more but out of the box the sound overall is great at this price point. One caveat noted was some tunes maxed out with ANC off got distorted sometimes but having ANC headphones I use the ANC and hardly use transparency mode but having said that these modes do work really well and are a great addition to the features on the headphones.
For movies You Tube and gaming etc you will be happy with the audio quality given here with good direction highs lows and mids are good too and in general a listening experience you will enjoy.
The other major benefit with these is multipoint technology which allows you to connect to two devices at once so for me working at home connecting to my phone and pc make these a great pair of headphones to have and makes life much easier.
