I’ve used some Olixar products but all of them are protective cases for iPhone. I was not aware that they are producing some audio products as well. The Olixar X2 Pro has received a lot of compliments on MobileFun, so I was so curious to test out the budget wireless headphones.
Design & Features
I was not impressed with the design and even the packaging of the product. The box is made of clear plastic which is not eco-friendly and it is also not easy to take the headphones out. The Olixar X2 Pro headphones don’t look as sleek as seen on the website. I am disappointed that they feel very flimsy and dull. I’ve tested many other plastic headphones and they have much better build quality than these cans. Besides, I also see some scratches on the earcups although the unit is brand new.
A great advantage of the design is that the earcups can be folded inwards for a more compact storage. The headphones seem to have an over-ear design but the earcups are not big enough for my ears. Fortunately, the headphones are extremely lightweight and comfy, this is an important feature if you are looking for headphones for long listening sessions.
I’m very surprised that they can pack a lot of features in such a lightweight product. The Olixar headphones feature NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, so it’s quite easy to pair and listen to the music collection on your smartphone. The connection is quite consistent and I hardly see any interruption.
On the other hand, the battery life is quite good. It is rated at 10 hours for a single charge and in real-life usage, it could last around 6 hours.
I didn’t expect much from the headphones because the design looks really cheap and I don’t feel like this is a premium audio product. However, the audio quality is actually not bad at all.
The sound is not bassy or muddy like other cheap headphones. Instead, the mids are actually quite present while the bass is not over-boosted, therefore, we still have a very clear and unfatiguing sound. I believe the sound could meet requirements of most average consumers.
Having said that, there are still some limitations that make the headphones unsuitable for audiophiles. Firstly, the bass is not really punchy and tight, and I can hear some distortion when the headphones can’t render the sub-bass. Besides, the highs are slightly recessed, so you won’t be able to enjoy a bright and airy sound here.
- Compact and lightweight
- Good sound
- Cheap build
The Olixar X2 Pro is a capable pair of headphones but they look just like other cheap headphones. This would be a good choice if the build quality and design were better.
