ANC Hybrid Active Noise Cancelling Headphones

To block out unwanted external sounds, the SuperEQ headphones use four inward and outward facing microphones to detect noise around you. The maximum noise reduction is 33dB, allowing you to focus on what you are listening to even in noisy environments such as buses, trains and airplanes. At the same time, two inward-facing microphones measure what you're listening to, delivering clear audio even on windy days.

 

Bluetooth 5.0 and a battery that won't stop the music

The headphones feature a powerful, high-precision chip in the right cup, a unique acoustic design and advanced technology. It can transmit stable and high quality audio data and reduce the delay to a minimum without affecting the sound quality, even when using Bluetooth for video or live broadcasting. 380mAH high capacity battery allows you to enjoy music, watching movies and talking for 45 hours once fully charged. (Bluetooth mode only).

 

External Sound Capture Mode

Whether you are wearing noise-canceling wireless headphones on the train, subway, bus or in a noisy office, you may need to pay attention to external sounds. If you want to listen to the sounds around you, press the noise control button to switch to external sound capturing mode. This allows you to talk to the people near you and listen to the sounds around you in a natural way.

 

HiFi High Quality Sound and Excellent Bass

The 40mm dynamic driver produces a wide frequency range and tight, powerful bass, richly expressing every bass detail. Produces high quality sound with minimal distortion in all audible ranges. From deep, rich bass to precise mids to clear, crisp highs. The sound is unprecedentedly vivid.

 

Excellent Portability and Comfortable Fit

This wireless headphone not only has a foldable structure, but also uses soft low-resilience memory foam. The ear cups can be rotated 90 degrees forward and backward, and 50 degrees up and down, ensuring high portability. The soft ear pads reduce pressure and allow you to wear them comfortably for a long time.

Connection quality

I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with AAC. The quality of the connection is excellent for the price range. I haven't been in crowded places, so I don't know, but it's stable in the home. Distance tolerance is excellent, and the connection is seamless and intact even at a distance of about 5 meters. The music plays fine even with a barrier between us, and there are no interruptions.

 

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

 

ANC & Hear-through Performance

Hear-through performance

The OneOdio SuperEQ S1's hear-through mode works like a sound collector. There is a little bit of background noise, but it is hardly noticeable if you have music playing. Environmental sounds are a little brighter overall, but relatively natural.

 

ANC performance

The ANC performance is not bad; when the ANC is turned on, there is a faint shushing sound, but the air conditioning sound is almost completely cut off. TV sound becomes more distant, but it is clearer than with ANC off because other ambient sounds are more suppressed. I don't feel my ears twitching. It's not powerful, but it's good enough.

 

Sound quality

The OneOdio SuperEQ S1 has three emphases: punchy low-mids, vivid mid-highs, and crunchy highs, and for most people, it will sound audibly crunchy. However, if you have advanced age-related hearing loss, the sound may tend to gather in the midrange and sound dull.

The OneOdio SuperEQ S1 has a sound structure that emphasizes the drums. Therefore, it is first recommended for drum lovers. People who like vocals with volume will also find this model attractive.

It's a little hard to say if it's for everyone, but I personally enjoy the sound, and it's nice to hear the style of music with plenty of volume, with powerful and lively drums and thick vocals in a sound field that's quiet enough and deep enough.
