TT BH060 VS MPOW H5 - TT as winner
March 23, 2019
Bought MPOW H5 and TT BH060 at the same time so I can compare them side by side. I have been doing research for week based on reviews on Amazon and Youtube. I have quite a few wired/wireless headsets and earphones but this is my first ANC. Been doing some international travel with 20-25 hrs each way with the longest stretch as 15 hrs so I decided to get an ANC to see if it will help me sleep and get rested.
Note: Feel free to compare with Bose and Sony high end headphones, but know it's not apples to apples. You will be paying about 6-8 times for those high end phones and they are expensive for a reason plus the branding. But for the less than $100, these are pretty good.
I'm not audiophile, but to me, both are very good as far as sound for this price range. I listened to them side by side and can barely tell the sound difference. The TT, however, feels like it sounds better because of the comfortable "pillow" snug hug the padding has around your ear. When ANC is turned on, MPOW gets louder while TT sounds lower. A bit odd though: When you remove TT away from your head (place it in front of you) and turn on ANC, the volume sounds louder. I listened to Rod Stewart's "Your In my Heart with a good shift of sounds from right to left and TT was much crispier to me.
Both are good, and without music, you can hear that hissing or continous very faint ocean sound (at least that's how I would describe it) that is typically heard in noice cancelling headphones. I do think MPOW is just a little better. As mentioned above, MPOW's volume becomes louder when you turn on ANC, which makes me wonder...if the volume is louder, it will definitely cut out any passive outside noice :)
Mpow sticks out farther to the sides than TT because it is wider (see photos). The padding under the headband that touches your head is wider and thicker in MPOW than TT. Both paddings are good but TT feels softer and nicer. If TT's padding holds the same softness for along time, that would be great. But...if it gets flatter over time for both, maybe MPOW would be a better choice since its a little thicker. Time will tell based on usage.
THICKNESS AND PADDING:
TT ear cups are thicker than MPOW (see photo) so I prefer MPOW on this one. The oval size is basically the same. The ear pads of MPOW is stiffer than TT. TT is just very comfortable due to its softness.
AROUND THE NECK
Using it properly where the left cup is on the left side, MPOW's cups flips up, while TT flips down. I prefer TT's approach so the inside of the cup is not exposed to outside elements such as dust in a windy day. This is how I quickly determine which is left and right cups for each headphone. It only turns flat one way (90 degrees)
TT is v5.0 while MPOW is 4.1. Both worked well connecting to my iPhone 8 and no lag.
Nice case...BUT why the hell TT couldnt add a nice hook so it doesn't have to placed in the suitcase or bag? Nice protection but I won't be brining the case with me and take that space in my carry on. What a wasted opportunity and bad design without the hook.
Mpow doesnt include a case. Just a nice girly bag to hide the headphone or protect from dirt or scratches.
My overall winner here in TT. The combination of padding comfort, fit around my head, sound, ANC, and design definitely makes it a better choice. The difference in sound and ANC is very iittle. I was going to return the MPOW but it's good enough for me and I'll give it to my 13 year old son. As of this writing, MPOW was 40 and TT was 70.00. So, if budget is a big factor here rather comfort, pick MPOW.
I will be having another long international flight in two weeks and will be able to test the battery and ANC in real conditions. I will update the review sometime after that. Hope my review and my research/comparison have been helpful and saves you time.
