Mpow 059 Review
In-ear wireless headphones and other smaller earphones are indisputably well-designed and super handy, but it is also beyond question that over-ear headphones make listening to music even more exciting! Today, I’ll do a review on Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones, one of the best-selling over-ear headphones on various online marketplaces today. Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones bring a fresh and modern take on the classic over-ear headphones, which gives a different feel when listening to your favorite songs! Let’s probe the reasons why the Mpow 059 became so popular to consumers! Check out my full Mpow 059 Review below!
Packaging and Design
Mpow 059 comes with a black drawstring pouch, a USB cable to use for charging, and an audio cable. Its design is very sleek and modern, that it is pretty much on an equal footing with the looks of the leading brands. The material of the over-ear headphones is plastic, and given that it is not as expensive as the other premium brands, it is not surprising that the headband feels less durable and resilient. The outer part of the earcups is also made of plastic. This actually needs extra care because too much force or impact may break the headband and the hinges connecting it to the earcups.
What I loved about the Mpow 059 is it is lightweight and comfortable even in hours of using. Both the earcups and the headband are padded, which usually causes your head and ears to sweat; but to my amazement, long hours of using the headphones did not give me headaches or irritation.
Given its price, I wasn’t expecting anything extravagant. When I found out that the Mpow 059’s are very popular on online shopping websites, I just assumed that the reason why people buy them is mainly (and only) because of its affordability. When I got the chance to try one out myself, I was actually surprised that the Mpow 059 produces good quality sound. The sound is incredibly balanced, and I didn’t have any issues listening to my playlist. I can also say that I got my money’s worth. It’s not perfect though, but for budget headphones, it’s pretty awesome.
Mpow 059’s noise cancellation is decent, but its effectiveness depends on your surroundings. Using it in a relatively quiet environment would block out ambient noise, but it doesn’t perform really well in very noisy surroundings (ie. during commutes, in malls during weekends, etc.).
The Mpow 059’s battery life is also impressive. Without recharging, you can use your headphones for 24 hours of active listening! For a traveler as myself, long battery life is one of my top priorities in headphones. One issue though, is that it takes time to fully charge it. So at certain occasions, it kind of slips my mind and I leave my headphones charging overnight.
The Mpow 059 is a pretty decent pair of headphones. It’s not the best in the market, but it is definitely one of the best budget headphones out there, and I won’t hesitate to recommend it to those who are seeking for affordable quality Bluetooth headphones

Good: At the time of writing this Mpow 059 Review, I can say that the sound quality is surprisingly good, and I love that the quality of the sound is not compromised by its price and exterior design quality. I enjoyed using it even in long hours of travel because, despite its material, it still feels comfortable.
Not so good: The headphones itself doesn’t look and feel durable. Noise cancellation feature needs improvement and charging it takes more than 3 hours, which is pretty long compared to charging our iPods and mobile devices.
