The design of Haylou Moripods ANC earbuds is small and light, and the wearing comfort is also OK. There is also -30dB ANC noise cancellation performance and excellent battery life, and the configuration is very balanced among true wireless ANC earbuds in the $35 price range.

Haylou Moripods ANC uses a white color scheme with a brand logo on the front. The charging case is designed with rounded lines and a simple matte material, which looks like a cobblestone. The advantage of this matte material design is that it will not get fingerprints when using it. Compared with most charging cases on the market, the Type-C charging interface is designed on the side instead of the back or bottom.
The earphone stem design of Haylou Moripods ANC earbuds is also relatively short. The earbuds use a 35° in-ear angle to softly fit the inner ear contour, making it more comfortable and stable to wear. The weight of a single earbud is only 3.9g, so you won’t feel tired even if you wear it for a long time.
Items in the Haylou Moripods ANC package include: charging case, type-c cable, instruction manual, 3 pairs of eartips of different sizes (one pair is pre-installed on the earbuds). Different sizes of eartips can meet the ear wearing needs of different groups of people.
Noise Cancellation Performance
In terms of noise cancellation performance, Haylou Moripods ANC has three noise cancellation modes that can be switched in different scenarios, namely ANC mode, transparent mode and standard mode. Different noise cancellation modes can be suitable for different usage environments. You can switch to the mode you want by triple tap the right earbud.
The noise cancellation depth of Haylou Moripods ANC can reach 30dB, and I have also experienced its active noise cancellation performance during this period. Among the tws earbuds in the $35 price range, I am quite satisfied with its noise cancellation performance. When wearing earbuds and switching to ANC mode, it will monitor the noise of the surrounding environment in real time, and then intelligently and accurately cancel the noise in reverse. When wearing earbuds, you can basically block out the noise of the surrounding environment.
The earbuds use high-quality microphones and DSP call noise cancellation technology to accurately pick up every word and separate and attenuate the noise. In this way, even if you are in a shopping mall or a noisy outdoor such as a bus or subway station, you don’t have to worry about the ambient sound being too loud, making the call clear as a face-to-face chat.
Battery Life & Control
The single battery life of earbuds with ANC mode turned on is up to 7.5 hours, and it can reach 30 hours with charging case. When the ANC mode is turned off, the single battery life can reach 9 hours, and the charging case can reach 33 hours. This is 2 times longer than the 4-5 hours (ANC OFF) of true wireless noise cancellation headphones currently on the market.
The touch area of Haylou MoriPods ANC is on the LOGO on the outside of the earbud. It supports high-precision light touch operation, and does not exert pressure on the ear. Tap the earbuds to “answer/end calls, play/pause music”. Double tap implements “reject call, previous/next song”. The triple tap left earbud implements “switching low-latency mode”, and the triple tap right earbud implements “switching noise cancellation mode”.
Control of Haylou MoriPods ANC:
- Double tap L/R earbud: previous/next
- Long press L/R earbud 1.5s: play/pause
- Long press L/R earbud 1.5s: answer/hang up
- Double tap L or R earbud: reject call
- Triple tap L earbud: low latency mode
- Triple tap R earbud: noise cancelling mode
In terms of game performance, with the blessing of Bluetooth 5.2, Haylou Moripods ANC can bring a smoother low-latency connection. You can enter the low-latency game mode through the triple tap left earbud, and you can easily realize the functions of audio and video synchronization and listening to voice in the game experience.
When playing shooting games such as “Game For Peace”, you can clearly hear the opponent’s footsteps and use the footsteps to identify the opponent’s position. There is no delay in the gunshots in the game, and the sound can be clearly transmitted when the microphone is turned on.
Sound Quality of Haylou MoriPods ANC
Haylou MoriPods ANC is equipped with a 10mm dynamic driver that supports SBC/AAC audio decoding. Personal actual sense of hearing, low frequency and mid frequency are well controlled, and high frequency vocals are clear. In terms of vocals, it is no longer dull, plus tri-frequency equalization, so I feel that the performance of sound quality is still OK.
For the actual listening test, I auditioned a piece of Tsai Qin’s “渡口”. With the blessing of Haylou Moripods ANC bass, you can clearly hear the position of each drum beat in the intro part of this song. The mid and high-pitched performance is also very elastic, and the singer’s magnetic voice is also fully displayed under the interpretation of Haylou Moripods ANC.
