The Breakdown

Prose

Sounds very good, Very comfortable, Value for money, Good build quality for this price, 50 hours of autonomy for the A50, Bluetooth connection with excellent range and low latency, Allows two simultaneous analog inputs (3.5mm and 6.35mm).

Cons

They are a bit big. Also, they do not isolate too much from outside noise

The audio equipment market, particularly in the headphones and earphones segment, is split between two trends. On the one hand, brands that offer inexpensive products, but of questionable quality. On the other, well-known brands whose catalog is full of premium products, but at particularly high prices. It is therefore difficult to find a satisfactory in-between both in terms of quality and price.

This is where brands like OneOdio come in. Founded more than ten years ago, this Chinese company aims to offer its audio equipment at the best price (often under $ 100), without skimping on manufacturing quality and performance. The result is a range of products tor music lovers who do not have a high budget. A philosophy and a positioning rare enough to be underlined and of which OneOdio is the spokesperson with its headphones such as OneOdio A70 and the OneOdio Monitor 60.

OneOdio Monitor 60

Design and comfort

The M60s come in black with some silver accents, giving them a classic look. The quality of the plastics is reasonably good for its price. And overall the build quality is good. The earphones have a good touch, they seem solid and they don’t creak at all when using them.

The rotating hinge mechanisms that allow us to adjust the headphones to the shape of our head have a perfect fit and no looseness. I think they are completely plastic, but they seem sturdy. The turning is quite smooth, perhaps too smooth.

The cups can also rotate up and down very smoothly, also too smooth for some tastes because you have to be holding them when you put on or take off the headphones, but overall I don’t think it’s a problem for most users.

However, what stands out most about the M60 are the generous padding on the cups and headband. They are impressive. Because of that, the earphones are big and bulky, which is what one expects from an over-ear Hi-Fi earphone. The weight of 333 grams also places them as mid-weight high-fidelity headphones on the high side, although once worn they are very comfortable thanks to the padding.

Connectivity

The headphones feature a 3.5mm connection on the right cup and a 6.35mm connection on the left cup. This means that the cables are fully removable which is excellent for durability. Of course, some very good quality cables are included. Specifically, 3 cables are included:

  • A long 3.5mm cable: it has both minijack connections and is 3 meters long. Plus, it’s thick and sturdy. It is ideal for use at home with the Hi-Fi equipment, the amplifier or the computer.
  • A short 3.5 mm cable with a microphone: both connections are minijack sized and are one and a half meters long. It is perfect to use it with the mobile and to be able to use it with calls. In the microphone part it has a button that is used to pause and resume the music.
  • A mixed cable: This is a cable with a 6.35mm plug and a 3.5mm plug. It can be connected in both ways to the headphones. The cable has a smooth part and a spring part. It is also a thick and robust cable.

Sound

Each earphone mounts a 50mm dynamic driver with a diaphragm made from a “protein-enhanced” fabric. By the way, although the design can be misleading, they are closed headphones, although the passive isolation is not very good either.

I would say that they isolate very little from outside noise, but the music is reduced quite a bit before going outside. Even so, if we have the high volume, the people around us will be able to hear what the headphones play.

OneOdio has opted for a very present bass with a lot of body and strength, but contained and defined. They are quality basses, but they do not stand out excessively above the rest of the frequencies as it happens in many headphones.

The mids are very good. Lead vocals and instruments are direct and very natural. They have strength and definition. Also, the instrument separation is quite good, in general, and very good considering the price of the M60. The soundstage is fine, but it doesn’t stand out too much, perhaps because of the closed design of these headphones.

The highs have a very good level of detail, which gives cymbals and high-pitched strings a sparkle without ever becoming harsh. In addition, they sound natural and relatively warm.

In general, the OneOdio M60 have a fairly balanced sound with slightly boosted bass frequencies. I think they have followed the maxim that everyone likes bass, but without letting it take center stage over the rest of the frequencies. And they have succeeded. The overall sound stands out for being very sharp and clear in all frequencies. With an excellent level of detail and a very good separation of instruments.

Opinion

The OneOdio Monitor 60 has an excellent sound quality for headphones that usually cost $ 80. I don’t think there are many headphones in this price range that can compete with them. In addition, they are very comfortable, the cables are removable and they come with 3 quality cables. As negative points, we can say that they are quite bulky and that they do not isolate too much from outside noise.

OneOdio A70 Review

The OneOdio A70 are headphones that can be used via Bluetooth or via cable. In addition, via cable they can play two audio sources simultaneously, one through the 3.5 mm connection and the other through the 6.35 mm connection. The headphones are also quite comfortable and the sound quality is good for a $ 45 headphone.

OneOdio A70

Design and comfort

The headphones are mostly made of plastic, although they do have metal internals like the headband. Still, the plastics are pretty good and the build quality is outstanding. Nothing creaks or makes noise when using them and the adjustment mechanisms move well and feel robust.

The headphones have a certain angle in the joints that make them adapt better to the shape of the head. The fit is very good, although visually they can be a bit more cumbersome than other designs. For example, these OneOdio A70s are bulkier than alternative headphones.

The cup pads are quite large and my whole ear fits inside them, so for me they are circumaural headphones. But, big people or people with generous ears may not fit them.

Connectivity

The headphones feature Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless connectivity. The connection is very stable, I have not had a drop at normal distances, and the range is excellent. I can go to the kitchen with them and continue listening to the computer in the room via Bluetooth, something that few headphones achieve. The supported codecs are the typical SBC and AAC.

In terms of latency, they defend themselves quite well. In videos the sound and image are completely synchronized and in video games they are usable without any problem, if you concentrate a lot you may notice a small lag in fast games (FPS), but it is minimal and does not bother.

As we have already said, the headphones also have 3.5mm and 6.35mm connections to be used as auxiliary inputs. Both can be used at the same time so we can listen to two sources at the same time, something that can be very useful for DJs or musicians.

Sound

The OneOdio A70 mount 40mm dynamic drivers and have an impedance of 32Ω. And, although the cups cover the entire ear, their passive noise cancellation is inferior to other similar headphones.

n terms of sound, the general equalization is relatively balanced, although the basses are somewhat raised, but nothing excessive.

The focus of the headphones is on the bass, even so, they are not too exaggerated. Of course, in certain songs they can dirty other frequencies a little. They don’t sound thunderous either, though, and they hold their own pretty well in all genres of music.

The lower mids have quite a punch as well. Although the upper mids are somewhat weaker and some voices may lack a bit of prominence. Even so, the voices sound quite direct and natural. The separation of instruments is not great, but they do not tend to blur with complex melodies either. Of course, they could have a little more clarity.

The treble is somewhat worse. They don’t go too high up and don’t reach out to help produce a more open sound. Even so, when they reach the frequency they don’t sound bad at all.

Autonomy

The A70s have an internal 950 mAh battery with which they achieve autonomy, according to the manufacturer, up to 72 hours. And with my experience, I think the real autonomy is very close to 50 hours. Of course, we can use the headphones without a battery via cable and the microphone will still work.

Opinion

I like the OneOdio A70 headphones a lot because they are comfortable, they can be connected in many ways and they have excellent autonomy. The sound quality is not the most impressive thing about the headphones, but it is enough for me to listen to music while working, watch a movie or play a quick game. The truth is that you can’t ask for much more for the $ 40 they cost.

Verdict

The OneOdio Monitor 60 is perfect for amateurs who want to benefit from superior sound quality during their sound-related activities. Compatible with musical instruments as well as amps or a tablet, it offers great versatility that makes it an ideal partner for everyday life.

With its A70, OneOdio offers a Bluetooth headset suitable for everyday use. Equipped with 40mm speakers that deliver deep, warm sound, it stands out above all for its excellent battery life, which peaks at almost 72 hours in normal use. A little more significant, its CVC 8.0 noise reduction microphone which improves the quality of your calls by reducing external interference. Which makes this headset offered at less than $ 50 a great choise.
