01/ Appearance & Comfort
Baseus Bowie H1 over-ear bluetooth headphones have a simple and stylish appearance and a foldable design. The left and right headphone can be rotated for easy storage and can be placed directly in the bag when traveling.
In order to make it comfortable for users to wear, the headphone uses a retractable adjustment rod design, so that adults and children can find a comfortable wearing angle. Moreover, it is very friendly to women with long hair, reducing the probability of clip hair.
The head beam of the headphone is made of PU material, and the sponge filling material inside is very soft, and there is no feeling of pressing the scalp after wearing it. However, it is still unknown whether the material will change color after being worn for a long time.
There are two long metal holes on the outside of the headphone, which are two noise cancellation monitoring ports, and the design is very clever. The metal edge is used as a decoration to enhance the texture and grade of the product.
The charging interface and volume buttons are on the right headphone, and the power button is located in the middle of the volume buttons. The charging interface is a standard Type-C interface, which can be charged using an Android phone charging cable.
The ANC button is on the left headphone. Press it to switch between standard mode, transparency mode and noise cancellation mode. Of course, you can also switch through the mobile app.
The inside of the headphones is made of artificial leather and sponge earmuffs, and the dust filter inside is made of sponge material, which feels good. The earmuffs are well sealed and breathable.
02/ Sound Quality & Noise Cancellation
Baseus H1 is equipped with a 40mm full-frequency audio unit, and the sound quality is very good. Support Bluetooth 5.2 protocol, decoding protocol is AAC and SBC. Baseus H1 has good resolution in high, medium and low frequency. Selected several songs for audition, such as Tsai Chin’s “渡口”, and the classic song “Hotel California”.
The three drums in front of “渡口” are very clear, the bass extension is deep enough, and there is no muddy state. And Tsai Chin’s voice is also very clear, the midrange performance is good.
In order to comprehensively test the sound quality of the headphones, I deliberately chose the classic audition song “Hotel California”. Whether it is the opening applause or the sound of various instruments that follow, the Baseus H1 can accurately restore it, which is good.
The noise cancellation function is just needed, and it is also the hard power of over-ear headphones. Baseus H1 supports active noise cancellation and transparency mode, and the noise cancellation depth reaches 40dB. After the ANC mode is turned on, the outside noise is basically inaudible. If you wear a headphone and walk on the street, it is recommended to turn on the transparency mode. Moreover, after the transparency mode is turned on, the sound quality is not affected.
And when switching the noise cancellation mode, the headphones will have a prompt sound. Moreover, the appropriate noise cancellation mode can be selected through the Baseus App.
Baseus H1 adopts ENC call noise cancellation technology, so the call quality can still be maintained in a good state even in a noisy environment, and will not be affected by the noise of the external environment.
03/ Battery Life & Charging & APP
Baseus H1 has a built-in 400mAh battery with a battery life of up to 70 hours (ANC OFF). From the actual experience, this data has almost no moisture. When ANC mode is turned on, the battery life can also reach 40 hours. At the same time, the headphone also supports fast charging, which can be fully charged in about 1 hour. In addition, you can listen to music for 10 hours after charging for 10 minutes.
Listen to music at 60% volume, turn on ANC mode, listen to music for 2 hours a day, and still have 65% of the battery after half a month. According to this frequency of use, if the use time does not exceed 2 hours a day, a full charge can be used for one month. If the volume is turned up and the usage time is increased, a full charge can be used for about half a month (depending on usage).
In the Baseus App, in addition to setting the noise cancellation mode, you can also check the power of the headphone and adjust the music effect. By default, 12 sound modes are provided in the App, and user-defined modes are also supported. In addition, functions such as firmware upgrade are also supported.
