As soon as we took these headphones in our hands, we were very impressed by the structure: in general it is a product made entirely of metal (except of course for the ear cups and the top padding). The choice of material makes the headphones very solid and very sturdy, though not too heavy. This composition has surprised us in particular for the price at which they are sold, in fact, the Alfawise JH – ANC804 for only $39.99, you will have to deal with a really good product.
In order to compete with the most innovative high-end systems, the Alfawise JH – ANC804 have a USB Type-C port for charging, which will also be the same used to connect the device. For this reason, inside the package itself, we find, in addition to a normal cable from USB to Type-C (for charging, also an audio adapter from Type-C to 3.5 mm jack. Included in the package we will also have a headphone bag.
The Alfawise JH – ANC804 headphones are wireless and, despite this, are really great. We do not have interference problems and we can listen to sounds up to 15 meters away, not too little in short. The device supports Bluetooth 4.2 with profiles A2DP, AVRCP, HSP, HFP. There is no Qualcomm support for aptX, but, in any case, the audio latency seems to be minimal.
Obviously we will always be able to use the headphones also wired and, thanks to Type-C, if connected for example to the PC, we can both listen to music and load them, in a contemporary way.
As for the sound insulation this is absolutely perfect, once worn we will be virtually out of the world. The external sounds will only be barely noticeable once the headphones are worn and will be practically non-existent as soon as we start any song.
Among the different features of the product we also find an active noise cancellation that works quite well, removing the background noise quite well. On the other hand, this cancellation has some downsides, because by cancelling out the external noise it makes the music a bit short of bass. Of all the features then, this is perhaps the least impressive one that serves very well when you have to focus on a particular sound but that goes some way to ruining the overall complexity. As for the duration, the Alfawise JH – ANC804 has a 650 mAh battery and last about twenty hours.
On the other hand, as regards the use of the headphones, they are certainly suitable for home use, but also for the city. Although they are a bit ‘large you can safely use it for listening to music on the street. Moreover, thanks to their characteristic of being wireless, they are certainly very comfortable.
We are satisfied with everything from design to the quality of the materials used, from comfort to insulation, from the quality of sound reproduction to the excellent quality / price ratio. In short, a purchase due.
