The general goal of the Mu6 Space 2 headphones is to provide a higher quality offering, but at a more affordable pricing tier. I think it does largely hit that mark, in terms of quality and features that are present. A huge benefit to these particular headphones is the noise cancellation effect.
It’s quite remarkable, and just absolutely cuts out everything around you. This presents a much more immersive audio experience, and a more intimate one at that. With that, there are actually settings present. You can have it on, or off as well. With noise cancellation off, it’s very easy to know your surroundings in case you’re travelling and using these headphones.
Or, perhaps you need to have a conversation and don’t want to take them off. This is considered a transparency mode, and it’s great to have the option present on this device. I will note that noise cancellation is a feature that will slightly lower battery life on the headphones, which in general is long enough. Details on that in particular to follow later on.
The package comes with a rather sleek looking box that features nice designs on it. Inside that, you get a hard pouch for travel and some cords. This includes a USB Type-C cord for charging, fairly decent length though it could have been longer. There’s also a standard 3.5mm cord if you want to go wired for whatever reason. Keeping in mind that this is a wireless headset with Bluetooth 5.0 support for up to ten meters. I do suppose the inclusion of wired support is a nice extra.
The hard case pouch is alright, though somewhat basic and I thought that could have been fancier. Externally from the Space 2 headphones, there’s also an app you can download to further adjust minor aspects. I thought that was worth mentioning, but it really isn’t a too in-depth addition. Another really interesting feature here, is the touch control interface. Built onto the headphones you’ll be able to easily swipe in certain ways to interact with your audio experience.
It took a little to get the hang of it, but it’s really neat. You can pause, and play. I’ll also cut in to note that the headphones mute when you take them off and turn on again once put on your head. It’s a good feature, that works fairly well. Back onto the touch aspect it has smart touch and talk for the mentioned transparency earlier. This also includes voice assist support. Easy access to assistants for music, navigation, weather and of course anything else you need to ask.
In general the touch aspect is well integrated, with many options for swift motion adjustments. I will note that a voice is present inside the headphones at times to give information, I wasn’t too thrilled by the chosen voice there. Moving onto the product itself, this is incredibly comfortable. It really is something that you could wear for many hours and barely even notice its presence.
The earmuff foam is insanely comfy, and this is carried onto the head band as well. It’s really, really nice to wear. I’ve tried many headset options, and this one does definitely deliver in that regard. It also has luxurious leather, so that’s interesting. The driver here is a dynamic 40mm with a frequency range of 20Hz-20000Hz. This is really light being only 290 grams, and it folds dynamically. You can easily slide in the ear cups for travel, and it compacts nicely.
The outside design is aesthetically pleasing being a slick black. It’s got few extra details on the outside, and those that are present blend in naturally within the design. This has a battery of 800maH, giving you twenty hours of play time with noise cancellation on, and twenty four hours with noise cancellation off. The battery certainly does last, with a charge time of four hours which is somewhat long in my opinion.
The Mu6 Space 2 headphones deliver a quality experience with high end comfort and incredible noise cancellation. These were great for providing a silent, and optimal intimate music listening atmosphere. They really do silence the outside world, with an easy option for turning that off if you do need to hear it.
The touch controls felt intuitive, and varied in terms of what you could do with them. This is great for listening to audio, and looking good while doing so. It has a sleek, light design that definitely competes with the high end models out there today.
It’s stacked with features, and some neat tweaks that help make it stand out from the crowd. It’s easy to fold for travel, it has a wired option if you want to go that route and the battery certainly lasts. This is a very high quality offering, and I was thoroughly pleased by the headphones.
I think these will be great for day to day listening. Whether you’re on the go needing to travel somewhere, or sitting at home and just wanting to have some extra silence. It can create a completely unique and silent space for you to enjoy. It can also easily allow you to leave that space to interact with others if needed. Note: You can use "Gamerhead" for $10 off on their official site.
