When Mixcder released the E7 model, critics gave mixed reviews about E7, and most of the reviews ended up being positive. Now that the Mixcder E7 is out and I could not wait to try it. I wonder how the brand’s latest wireless, ANC headsets model will compare to its predecessor. And quite frankly, after Mixcder E10 review, I was blown away! Let’s jump into the details.
Design and build quality
The design of Mixcder E10 model is quite compact. The folding system of earpads makes it very convenient to carry around. The variant case that comes within the box has premium quality and holds the headsets safely.
The earpads are quite comfortable, and I could not feel any pressure or pain wearing them. The controls on the right side and they are quite smooth. Though, I did not like the placement of the active noise canceling. I do not know why it is at an odd spot.
The volume keys and the power keys are of the best quality, there is also a 3.55mm audio jack, which turns the earpiece to the wire.
Though, the question that worried me maybe the build quality. It is fine to see an adjustable head strap that has fine quality, but as it is moving section, I doubt that it’d last long. The foam on-ear pads are quite smooth, but the issue is they do not look durable to me.
They do not have a super finish that I noticed in other models. The outer texture of the E10 has the plastic feel, so I doubt its durability. Moreover, it is not graded for waterproof too. To sum up, I would say it might withstand certain drops and might live long without fixing the head strap broadly.
Mixcder E10 Review – Sound performance
E10 tries to please your ears with a 40mm sound driver on each side. These dynamic 40mm sound drivers promise a very low latency of 34ms on the specification sheet. In the software section, there’s the support of aptX, ACC, and aptX Low latency for enhanced sound performance at a distance.
In the actual world, this E10 headphones sound impressive, particularly when considering they fall in the budget section. During my experience, E10 was capable to separate the sound of different instruments quite really well, which I guess is a plus point in the audio department.
The bass is Thumpy enough, and you will enjoy different variations with ease. But one would still realize that an additional punch is missing in the package. So, it might not be a perfection option or those seeking a highly bassy headphone.
Performance-wise there does not look to be any noticeable lag while watching films. Though, there looks to be some sound popping when the audio is paused or played. It also occurs when the headset’s voice feedbacks play. It appears that something getting activated and after that deactivated during the procedure.
Mixcder E10 Active Noise Canceling Headphones
Speaking of the active noise-canceling headphones under 100, the company promises to eliminate almost 96 percent of the ambient sound. For that, these E10 headphones utilize the ANC v4 chip and bundle of noise-canceling mics onboard.
When the ANC feature is enabled, there a small pressure felt in the ears. While it’d be hard to spit the right percentage, the ANC works just great in several situations. For example, it was capable to kick out the sound of my desktop fan by a decent margin.
One thing I noticed the lack of additional crispiness/clarity in the sound when the ANC feature was enabled. But this thing makes the slightest contribution to the complete listening experience.
E10 looks to show a performance enhancement when utilized in a wired mode. It occurred that I mostly went for the AUX wire when using them on my PC.
In the wired mode, the sound performance gets amplified when you switch on the ANC but looks to take away some crispiness. One might seem additional distortion if the bass is very deep. I did not notice the sound pop that’s present when MIXCDER E10 is in wireless mode.
Compare Mixcder E10 to Other Over-Ear Headphones
One important that can affect my purchase decision is comfy. Here a lot of it’s offered by the memory foam present in the cushions. While wearing the E10 for around 4-5hrs each day, I did not feel any irritation or pain because of the frame getting squeezed among my head and the ear cup.
Though, there is still a slight clamping force that is acceptable. Though, this experience varies from person to person.
