Edifier have always delivered a robust good sounding pair of headphones no matter the cost and that surprised me some months ago when we test out a pair of headphones I was not expecting to sound good at all which was the wH500 which were fantastic for the price and sounded great despite not being the ususal style of headphones I would take shine to.
The latest from Edifier the WH950NB are no different and for me have been a joy to use over the last few weeks and again exceeded my expectations and not only this their app which has got better it seems really helps out and gives you more control over how you want things including sound and some controls.
The build and design is very clean here and most of the time are for the company keeping things simple with simple controls on one side which we go through in the video review below and of course we check out their app so be sure to check it out as it might also help you.
The headphones are comfortable and sit nicely on the ears and once placed correctly they omit much of the outside world and with their superb ANC you can forget about what is going on outside as they just block it all out which I like but you do have the option to have ambient ambient mode turned on and not only that you have gamer mode so everyone is covered here.
For the Audiophile here we also get LDAC which changes the sampling rate which is a bonus we also have multipoint connection too so again a great bonus for those working with two devices LDAC is only available on Android devices take note.
The sound overall is fantastic using their 40mm dynamic drivers and one thing for me and remember it is my personal finding from the review is theatre mode which pouts you right in the centre of everything and sounds just great with not a peep from what is going on outside given we have a level of protection with safe volume they have done an excellent job on the ANC end of things here.
You can skip and reverse tracks adjust the volume and control calls and access your voice assistant from the controls on the headset or use the app for some features too making it an easy pair of headphones to use all round, there is an MFB button which you can access your voice assistant from or change the ANC settings and the keys overall on the headphones worked really well with no issues to report at all and worked as instructed in their manual.
Overall excellent sound to be had here for gamers and more with no distortion at maxed out volume noted nice bass and good on phone calls too, I would like to see more colours perhaps but apart from that there is nothing to complain about and we have a decent battery life too but this worked out under their claims as all do but this is down to you and your settings and mine is always volume up and so is the bass which naturally takes a hit but for anyone else who uses 70-80% volume will reach the figures claimed. Another feature to note is the 7 hours playback with just a 10 minute charge.
Conclusion – These are an excellent pair of headphones and work well sound great and give you a real theatre experience and much more and do not cost as much as other competitors on the market offer sub par experience for the price.
