A pair of wireless earbuds with a charging case that brings together mobility and bumpin’ sound quality. Switch on that noise-canceling tech and escape into your favorite playlist or podcast.
What’s Included: Mpow X3 Wireless headphones, Charging Case, 3 Normal Ear Tips, 3 Extra Soft Ear Tips, USB-C Cable, User Manual, Quick Start GuidePromising review: “So far, I really love these earbuds. I’m impressed with the overall design of the earbuds and charging unit. It’s not cheaply made considering the price. The earpieces fit comfortably in the ear without feeling loose like they may fall out. I purchased these for outdoor use while on lawnmower and garden. The noise-canceling mode works relatively well but does not completely cancel all noise. It’d be a miracle to cancel engine noise decibels. The bass is richer than any earbuds I’ve ever used. The most expensive pair I’ve had before was Beats in-ear wired so that’s my point of reference. It’s simply amazing that the sound quality packed into these little earbuds considering the price point.” —Jeremie MGet a pair from Amazon for $59.99.
