The SoundMAGIC P60BT ANC headphones is an affordable pair of cans that get the job done and rather than use keys to get things moving these are gesture based and work really well and sound really good for the price the company is looking for which is great news for the consumer and I have said it many times there is no need to go out speding silly money on headphones or be a brand loyalist and this is coming from someone who tests more headphones than most in Ireland.
These are comfortable to wear too and do not clamp on the head either nor sweat after hours of use, when I mean hours I mean hours, most times when new earbuds or headphones arrive I give them an immediate 4 hour test as I would head to bed a tune into my projector and watch movies and YouTube for the evening or sat on the couch.
The controls work really well and I have had no issues getting the action I wanted,some headphones like this can make you take several attempts to get what you want done and to be fair it is a matter of getting use to them too which is by no means hard, a few minutes on the head and you will pick it up quite fast. Also a really cool feature is one touch hits are ruled out here so if you happen to tap or rub of pillow etc when on couch they will not do anything unlike other headphones, some of which I am testing now and they tap the pillow and pause the media playing etc which is super annoying.
The Hybrid ANC technology uses internal and external microphones to reduce a wider range of frequencies when compared to standard ANC. With Ambient mode selected, ambient awareness is increased and users are able to hear their surroundings without having to remove the headphones. aptX HD compatibility as well as AAC and SBC means that users will get the best audio quality delivered from their device. And aptX Low Latency provides gamers with lightning speed wireless audio so they won’t miss a thing. Not so much a gamer myself however I have tried these with gaming for some time and they offer an excellent immersive experience and they do come with a small mic to add on if you want to talk to others when gaming which is better all round.
Overall the sound that comes from these is more than decent at the price level they are on offer for and I enjoyed testing these out, highs lows and mids all great,nice bit of bass and no distortion or tinny sound when maxed out, so for gaming movies music and more they do a great job, the call quality was not bad either. NO lag latency was noted either in all my testing.
There is also great battery life here which is to be noted meaning you will not be in a rush to charge them up and if so you can get 5 hours of charge with ten minutes charging via USB-C. The only thing missing here for me is an app which I hope they will do next time around.
