MPOW H5 Wireless Headset Design And Features
Getting into the discussion of this beautiful pair of over-ear Bluetooth headphone I would first reveal the design of this massive beauty. No doubt it is one of the best Bluetooth headphones under 100. You should know that this is the upgraded model of MPOW H series. The style is over-ear and the noise-cancellation is coming active on it.
It has a build quality with the soft and great material. The pair is coming in a husky design made in foldable adjustment. I would recommend the pair to the small ears guys and girls because when I wear it I noticed something on it. That something is it fitted pretty good to my small ears. The guys with big ears would get some issues with comfort.
The noise cancellation is extremely incredible. If I say it is one of the best workout over-ear Bluetooth headphones as in a gym session I didn’t even felt that the person besides me was asking me something. When he touched me I could respond at that time. So a practical experience is far better than hearing from around.
The average battery life rating reaching 19 hours as compared to the old version from MPOW the improvement on battery life is visible.

It was the best gaming experience and the verdict would not be wrong that the pair has the value to call best over-ear gaming headphones.
For adding more information to MPOW h5 review I tested the wireless headset for music playback experience as well. The battery life could reach 19 hours with a single recharge. We recharged the battery after gameplay tests. During the music playback, I experienced an incoming call on my Galaxy S9+. You should know that the volume and bass were on top of the food chain.
I would suggest you hear the sound on lower volume as it could hurt your hearing. The average battery life is 22 hours. By the results, it can be easily derived that the battery life could reach one full day with a single recharge.
MPOW H5 Controls And Adjustment
On the left earpiece, you would find three buttons and a mini USB connectivity port. Volume control buttons with plus and minus signs and Bluetooth icon button for power on and off. The Bluetooth button has a small LED light with blue and green lighting to notify the headset. A nice sound playback of a lady with saying your device is connected now sounds pretty cool. You would also hear the same lady when you turn it on, and on turning off.
The right earpiece of this beautiful best workout headphones over the ear pair you would find ANC switch button. Don’t confuse what is this on the right earpiece. It is an active noise cancellation switch button that is enabling you to hear more clear and isolated sound. By switching the knob you would feel the difference of sound hearing. It was a nice experience of hearing this pair. Such customized upgrades on this pair have the next level of sound hearing experience in affordable price.
MPOW H5 Performance
I tested many headphones and earbuds with wireless and wired connectivity. The wired connectivity had a different experience. In recent past, the wireless headphones were not so popular among the guys due to poor sound quality and connectivity issues.
But now it is a past, the innovative improvements in the wireless headphones made a trend of Bluetooth connectivity. Every passionate one got rid of the annoying cables. In gym workout session especially when you have a wireless pair the convenience is visible.
I was listening to some nice music in our tech lab to test these over-ear headphones for music playback. Meanwhile, I got a call from a friend, auto switch to the call was an incredible experience. Here is something more excited about it, during the call my friend asked me which phone I have. I smiled and put a question why is she asking. She replied that she could hear the ticking sound of my labs’ wall clock.
Can you imagine the sensitivity of the mic onboard? Such appealing features are making it worthy to keep for the better sound experience. If I say It is the most affordable wireless Bluetooth headphones with mic which has the worth to prove its claims.
The noise-cancellation features it offers are really awesome. As I already mentioned about the ANC (active noise cancellation) button on the right earpiece would make you able to switch the function on and off. It has a strong bass to give the beat of the heat. You would be amazed to hear that it would ignite the spark of motivation to increase your energy during the workout.
One of the best workout headphones that could possibly beat some really expensive pairs on the market with the same specifications and features. The affordable price is making it more attractive. After testing it I can easily say that it has the value to keep at any occasion including gym sessions for the workout with isolated sound experience.
The best wireless workout headphones that would take your experience to the next level. When you wear it the over-ear headphones would not allow external noise when it fits around your ears. The ANC would add an extra value to the noise cancellation option to make it more isolated sound hearing experience.
What I like
I really like the active noise cancellation features and it really works pretty well. You can feel the difference when you switch off the option by the ANC button. Well, if I say that the comfort level is great when you have small ears like me. The long battery life is adding some more value to the pair. How could I forget about the Aux-in cable as an extra option when you don’t have Bluetooth connectivity source. The build quality is durable and visibly improved. If you compare it with the old version H4 you would find a visible change.
What I Do Not Like
Well, I would mention the dislikes for you to give you a clear picture of the product. The drained battery made me upset. After scrutiny about how the battery juice finished, the ANC was put on even the headphones were not connected with any device. To keep your battery safe you need to turn off the ANC. You would have only one option to recharge it with 5w USB, some attention should be paid here to make it universal.
It was a great experience on both the gameplay and music playback. If you are planning to get a wireless headset that is pocket-friendly and could offer the specs and features which other high price Bluetooth headphones are offering. You found the exact match as per your priorities and needs. It would not let you beat on the performance side. The ANC features are the best one and it really works. When I tested it for gameplay with ANC I felt like I am myself playing in the game due to the clear and isolated sound effects. Switching to calls while connected with your smartphone for music or gameplay is convenient and effortless.
