The Edifier WH500 headphones are the latest on offer from the company at an affordable price and at first look I did not think these would sound good and I was totally wrong. Why you might ask well small cups and thin bands just remind me of office headsets and do not provide decent audio well let me tell you these give an excellent audio experience they are comfortable, super light and gave me a little nudge not to judge a book by its cover, however coming from Edifier I knew they would not sound terrible but they just excelled in my opinion.
OK so these are packed with features as expected with access to the Edifier Connect app which for me is important with headphones, there is a safety level here to to conserve your ears which again is important and has been in the media of late but this does not take away from the great audio experience you will find here, there is also good battery life to be found with up to 40 hours and based on my test it was around 39 max volume which is still good, you have fast charging which gives you around 6 hours playback in 10 mins which is pretty impressive and it takes 2 hours to fully charge the headphones.
Powered with 30mm drivers these do pack a punch and better than I anticipated and with access to the app enhances the experience with good bass, highs lows and mids and no distortion with that said you have other options in the app to which can also see in the video review below. No lag latency was noted either during testing and calls also very good both ends.
Overall with all the options in the app seen below makes these a good headset and one to watch if you like the small cups approach, for me I never took a shine to such but this pair has changed my mind.
