Connection quality

I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with AAC.

 

I don't know because I haven't been in crowds, but it is stable in the home. Distance tolerance is a bit weak and tends to be a bit choppy at distances of about 5 meters. The sound did not break up across the obstruction, and I was able to listen to music consistently afterwards.

 

There may be a small amount of background noise, but most people probably won't notice it.

Sound quality description

The following review was tested on a FiiO M15 with SBC connection.

 

The Edifier Hecate GX07 is fairly close to neutral in normal mode; there is no significant change in sound balance in ANC mode, but in game mode the signature is closer to a V-shape with an emphasis on spatiality.

Sound quality general comment
  • Original sound fidelity: A-
  • Recommendation: A-
  • Personal preference: B+

 

The Edifier Hecate GX07 is not a bad choice in its price range and is well balanced and tuned, as is typical of Edifier. However, the lack of transparency in the midrange and somewhat peppy highs will divide tastes.

 

Sound quality features
Pros
  • Good balance
  • Low frequency range with a sense of weight
  • Soundstage with a sense of depth
  • Clear consonants

 

Cons
  • Dark, dry midrange lacking thickness
  • Prone to harsh grinding sounds
  • Tends to be harsh and harsh

 

General comment

The Edifier Hecate GX07 is Edifier's ambitious flagship gaming true wireless earphones that supports the high-quality sound codec LHDC and includes active noise cancellation. The sound is balanced, as is typical of Edifier, but the high frequencies are emphasized so that gunshots and other sounds can be heard clearly, and are further intensified in gaming mode. Latency seems to be at a practical level, so if you are looking for a different model with a slightly sharp design that can be used for both music and gaming in a balanced manner, this may not be a bad choice.


However, there is not a lot of customization available through apps, and the active noise cancellation is not as good as it could be, so you can get a better model for music appreciation at a lower price.
