Wireless headphones are convenient, easy means of listening your music files, videos or any other time you want a little privacy. There are plenty of options to choose from and Mpow is hoping that the Swift Bluetooth Headphones will be on everyone's short list.
These sweatproof wireless headphones have a standby time of up to 185 hours and play time of up to 5 hours. Sound quality is good, fit is comfortable and call quality isn't too shabby either. Priced in the neighborhood of $35, the Swift headphones are also gentle on your budget.
The Mpow Swift Headphones are rather simple. You have two earbuds, connected by a single wire. Headphone controls rest on the right speaker and your micro-USB charging port is on the left speaker.
The controls on the right speaker include a volume/track control toggle switch and a multi-purpose button (also known as the Mpow button). You also have a LED indicated that illuminates the Mpow button. The headphone's microphone is also on the right speaker.
The actual earpiece on each speaker is angled to fit more naturally in your ear canal with stabilizers (the little loop thingy) to help hold things in place.
The Swift headphones come packaged with a micro-USB cable and an assortment of eartips and stabilizers.
As far as fit and feel is concerned, the Mpow Swift is a little bulky but not to the level of being uncomfortable.
Sound quality is good and the microphone does a surprisingly good job of picking up your voice and cancelling out a lot of the background noise.
Pairing is on par with any other Bluetooth device and the Mpow Swift has the ability to pair with two devices.
The Mpow button controls the majority of the headphone's features and includes:
- Powering on/off the headphones
- Initiating pairing mode
- Answering/Ending Calls
- Rejecting Calls
- Redialing the last number
- Muting Calls
- Play/Pause control for music playback
The LED indicator is used for monitoring your battery levels, confirms pairing mode and charging status.
In using the Mpow Swift over the past few days, it comes across as a well built, quality set of headphones. The Mpow button is slightly raised making it easy to find while the speaker is in your ear.
I have no complaints about the Mpow Swift's sound quality. The sound may have a little more bass to it than other headphones but in a good way. Listening to music files ranging from Pink Floyd to Little Big Town to Cheap Trick was not much different than it was from my LG Tone Bluetooth headset.
If you are in the market for a nice pair of Bluetooth headphones but don't want to spend a lot, the Mpow Swift headphones should be a strong contender. They are currently running in the neighborhood of $35 and you can find them at various third party retailers such as Amazon.com.
The headphones are available in the green/black, green/white and orange/white color combinations.
