TL;DR: these headphones are really good for the price, comfortable and the noise cancelling works great. Here are some pros and cons, and a comparison with the slightly pricier TaoTronics SoundSurge 90 (listed for $69.98).
- Really light and comfortable.
- Great quality sound for this price.
- The noise cancelling works great.
- Uses USB-C which is slowly becoming industry standard.
- The carrying pouch looks good and it's easy to fit anywhere.
- There's an ANC switch instead of a button, which I like.
- Minimal sound alerts (e.g. no alert when turning ANC on), which is nice.
- The ANC switch will remain on even when the headphones are on, which is good because it means you can use it without being connected through bluetooth, but it also means you'll have to power two things off to save battery.
- If you're picky like me, it might bother you that the power (and play/pause) button is between the volume buttons with uneven space (see picture).
Comparing with SoundSurge 90:
- The SoundSurge 90 has an alert for everything (e.g. when you power it on it will say the battery level and similarly, when you turn on/off ANC it will say "ANC on/off"), whereas these don't. I like these better in that sense.
- The build quality of the SoundSurge 90 is definitely better, but the sound quality is pretty much the same. If you care about the build quality, I'd recommend going with the SoundSurge 90, but if the main concern is sound, then I'd recommend saving the extra $20 and buying these!
- These are lighter than the SoundSurge 90 and have longer battery life.
- The "R" and "L" ear indicators are way clearer on these (large print inside the cup).
- I also had an issue with the SoundSurge 90 that they would disconnect right after connecting to my MacBook Pro after powering them on. These don't have that issue.
Disclaimer: I received these headphones for free in exchange for an honest review.
