It utilizes 40mm drivers with neodymium magnets to achieve a specified frequency response from 20Hz to 20kHz (no tolerance).#
The W860NB offers active noise cancellation.
Four microphones, two in each earcup, sample ambient noise, which is then phase-inverted and mixed with the original signal to reduce the perceived level thanks to phase cancellation. (There’s also a fifth mic for phone calls.)
The cables kept inside the case are in a small mesh pouch, and the top is lined with velcro to stick to the interior of the case to keep all your cables safe, which is a lovely touch.
Below the earcup is an LED indicator which displays power and whether it’s in pairing mode or not. On the left earcup is the NFC, allowing for secure connection to any phone that enables NFC. This ear also has the ANC button below as well as the power button.
An adjustable headband with padding at the top is covered by what feels like pleather allowing for a lovely feel.
However, the headphones barely fit me, which is terrible news for those of you with a smaller head as they will most probably not fit you all that well or fall off easily.
I found that I have to press quite firmly to use the gesture controls.
Overall my thoughts on The Edifier W860NB are that the vocals (during phone calls) are a 9/10 and the sound is clean.
The bass is punchy, and any Highs are clear, but the volume felt too low to me personally.
Overall £150 for these headphones is a reasonable price and for 25 hours of playtime perfect. ANC is excellent, I couldn’t hear anything other than music, and the aesthetics are personally something I would look choose.
I like these headphones, and they would be something I would pay for, but if you have a smaller head, then I would avoid these.
