SMARTOMI just keeps bringing the fire with affordable wireless solutions. Check out the latest – SMARTOMI MOTTO Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones.
SMARTOMI MOTTO Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones
These headphones feature a battery pack/active noise cancelling unit. it is somewhat clunky, however this type of set-up isn’t unique to MOTTO. Basically all ANC earbuds are built with this unit positioned in the middle of the cable which is rather long for being wireless. It doesn’t wrap around the back of your neck, but rests on the front of your chest with the long-ish wires dangling a little from the unit when clipped. There is a clip to secure the battery unit to your blouse or bag. (P.S. When these battery unit isn’t clipped, the unit reaches about the top of my thigh when standing up.) It’s not a horrible set-up, but it is a little clunky.
MOTTO ships with an aux cable that plugs into the bottom of the ANC unit so the headphones can be used wired. This is a winning feature, truly! There’s also a micro USB port for charging the earbuds.
Active Noise Cancelling
As for primary features, SMARTOMI MOTTO has active noise cancellation. Users can simply turn it on or off by sliding the toggle on battery pack. SMARTOMI claims MOTTO reduces about 90 percent of low-frequency background noise and I’d have to agree. I was pleasantly surprised that MOTTO greatly reduced the extremely loud air conditioner unit in the office as well as the voices of my neighboring co-workers. There’s a very very low audible hiss.
The battery lasts for about 7 hours using the headphones wirelessly and engaged in ANC while taking between 1-2 hours to charge.
When it comes to sound SMARTOMI MOTTO gives you pretty decent audio for the average on-the-go consumer. The audio is full, which I like. The lows, mids, and highs are present, but the lows and low-mids are definitely heavier than the rest of the audio. It’s not the most precise bass. It’s more boomy. If you like big bass, then you’ll like these. If you don’t mind bass, I think you’ll still like these. But, if you want something more neutral then you may want to opt for a different pair of buds.
SMARTOMI MOTTO impressed me overall. The build feels durable enough to endure the daily grind of a commuter while the ANC is quite powerful with a run time of 7 hours. The sound is decent, so overall I think these earbuds make for a great investment.
The earbuds normally cost $79.99 but are available at the best price on Amazon.
