Audio in the ears that surprises a lot
The Moonki Sound line has more and more products aimed at the general public, this time we tested the MH-TWS33, ideal for when we are in the concrete jungle.
Opening the MH-TWS33
The box is normal, we open a lid and find a charging case with a pill-shaped lid with an internal battery, the headphones inside and the USB-C charging cable .
The headphones are compact and completely independent of each other (there are others that have a headband to link them) and are in-ear format, that is, we have to "fit" them inside the ear. To help the fit, it comes with highly adaptable rubber bands that generate a surprising level of adherence and isolation... to such an extent that it does not come with multiple rubber bands, but rather the one that is installed can work in all ears.
The MH-TWS33 in detail
Each earphone weighs only 5 grams , about the same as Apple Airpods which weigh about 4.5 grams, so comfort is very good. Each one has a multifunction tactile button that, depending on the moment, can operate as power on, answer a call, hang up, etc.
The speakers are 8 millimeters in diameter and have a frequency range that goes from 20Hz to 20KHz depending on the manufacturer. The internal battery is 30mAh capable of providing a range of 4 hours of continuous use and up to 120 hours in standby.
In addition, it incorporates an omnidirectional microphone that works as a hands-free for the cell phone. We have tried to speak through it and on the other side they always answered that the audio quality was very good, even speaking in city traffic.
It is used wirelessly via bluetooth . The pairing is simple, they take out the headphones, wait 2 or 3 seconds for them to pair with each other automatically and then pair the bluetooth on the fly without major problems.
What's up with the MH-TWS33 charging base?
It has a 400mAh battery that now allows you to charge the headphones 3 times before running out . The bad thing is that it does not have a charge indicator to be aware if we have to recharge the unit. The battery recharge is through a USB-C cable and the charging time from 0 to 100% is about 2 hours. The headphones go from 0 to 100% in 1 hour and a half.
Testing the MH-TWS33
How do these headphones sound? Being one more "street" headset, we only analyze the use and musical issue.
In terms of audio, as a retired Disc Jockey I am very picky about audio quality and I have to say that I was greatly surprised with a very even frequency range . The bass sounds full (not all in-ears have good bass, it is known) and the mids and trebles have a very good resolution even at somewhat high volumes when we are on the street.
The price of these MH-TWS33 is competitive since we are talking about $3,900 pesos in the Argentine market . Other competitors with similar features such as the Xiaomi Redmi Airdots are in that price range, while the Galaxy buds are through the roof. By price/performance equation they deserve a Gold medal [UNBREAKABLE]. [Yo]
