The Moshi Mythro C USB-C headphones are good earphones. They may not be the greatest, but they are the best in their price range. I fear for the total loss of the headphone port, but there aren’t many USB-C headphones to fill the hole of the missing headphone port. I am aware that Bluetooth is the way to go, but in my eyes, the audio quality just isn’t there yet.
The Moshi Mythro C have a solid but simple look that definitely fits in with the brand. They have brushed aluminium earbuds and aluminium housings. The whole thing makes them have a premium feel and look to them. The inline remote is quite bulky and makes storage of them a little for difficult. There is a velcro strap included, which makes rolling them up a bit easier.
The controls include volume up/down, a call button and a dedicated DJ Boost button. This button seems to artificially enhance the music and make it a bit louder and more bass. The buttons themselves have no click and are a bit spongy.

The USB-C connection wasn’t as tight as I would like. It also didn’t behave well with my case. I found it fell out a couple of times a day, which ended up stopping the music and I had to start again from scratch. This is another reason why USB-C headphones don’t always work.
I’m dazzled by the quality of the Moshi Mythro C USB-C headphones largely because I just didn’t expect them to sound as great as they do. The built-in DAC definitely helps improve the entire listening experience. Moshi’s very own DR8 Neodymium drivers do improve the audio and help it stay stable and crisp throughout your entire listening time. Even on full blast, there was little to no degradation in sound quality.
They are good, but not spectacular. I think if you pack a phone with a thin or no case, then these will be good for you. But if you still have that audio port, then I suggest sticking with it for a bit longer. Finally, check out our other audio reviews.
