I’ve used some OneOdio devices in the past via friends and family and was pleased with their performance at the time, which led me to the OneOdio Over-Ear Hybrid Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones.
Initial thoughts were that the headphones were a bit on the small side but looked to be made from strong materials and looked quite durable.
In terms of design, this is more aesthetically pleasing to look at. It looks modern without any flashy designs. The OneOdio logo is etched onto the outer earcups and has a lovely finish to it. They are adjustable to suit a range of head sizes and the ear cups also rotate, too. The earcups were a bit smaller than I was used to but I still found them comfortable using them over long periods of time.
Controls are in a convenient place too – you have the power/volume/Bluetooth buttons on the left earcup whereas the right earcup holds the ANC slider and the USB-C charging port.
Simple to connect to devices – it automatically started searching for devices to pair with when I first turned it on and I was able to detect it under Bluetooth settings very quickly. The connection was brilliant – I had no issues when moving around throughout the house
The most important part – sound. In both the wired and wireless mode, I wasn’t blown away with the sound quality as I felt my other headphones were slightly better but it still did a great job. It has dual 40mm drivers which my previous headphones did – it can reproduce a decent level of frequencies and would generally suffice those wanting to have a nice sound pair of headphones without breaking the bank.
I would definitely recommend having a play around with EQ settings to create a personalised listening experience – this definitely helped me to improve the quality of sound I was getting out of it.
ANC works decently well. Without music, it blocks out any background noise and I can’t hear the hum of my fans near me but I can still hear cars, lawnmowers etc but if music is playing even at a low level, it blocks out all sound, including the sound of me typing.
Based on my experience of using several headsets with this feature, I’d say hybrid ANC is much better than standard ANC. Solid battery life – it lasts for about 20 hours on Bluetooth mode but that’s from nearly a month of using it daily with ANC being turned on periodically.
I did find the claims of “fast charging” somewhat true. In 5 minutes with my fast charge cables, this would go just over 2 hours of play but charge for 5 minutes using standard charging cables would have varying times between 30 mins to 90 mins. It didn’t take too long for a full charge either. A full charge usually lasts me at least a minimum of 2 days which is amazing. Comes with a nice carry bag, aux cable, aeroplane adapter and charging cable.
Overall, I’m very happy with the OneOdio Over-Ear Hybrid Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones. They have a good sound quality and ANC looks nice and is comfortable. These are now my main set of headphones throughout the day.
