REVIEW – I took a brief break, and now I am back to my adventure into the world of sub-$ $100 headphones.

The MIXX StreamQ C4 Noise Canceling Headphones feature  ANC noise cancelling, over-ear construction, and a foldable design. They offer up to 40 hours of battery life and a quick recharge of 15 minutes for 8 hours of listening.

Before starting my listening experience with the MIXX StreamQ C4 – Wireless  Noise Cancelling Headphones, I charged them overnight.

When powering the MIXX StreamQ C4 – Wireless  Noise Cancelling Headphones on/off they provide audible verbal confirmation. To maintain a level playing field, I followed the same testing model that I used with the previous sub $100 brands and models I tested, and I listened to tracks like “All in Love is Fair”, “Distant Lover” and “I Want You” by Michael McDonald. Next, on the list I listened to “Europa” by Gate Barbieri, “Winelight” by Grover Washington Jr., and “Angela (theme from ‘Taxi’) by Bob James. Then as I did before, it was on to some Gregory Isaacs, Beres Hammond, the Flamenco genre with tracks like Govi’s Andalusian Nights and Mariah Carey.

Overall, I do not have anything really negative to say about their performance, but IMHO while the low frequency is adequate, the mids and highs lack some of the presence that would provide a fulfilling sound. I understand that these are not audiophile headphones and I have to be fair that at the price point, they are a good value for daily listening headphones as you go about your daily activities.

Phone conversations are clean and clear, and the headphones are lightweight and comfortable for long listening.

What I like about the MIXX StreamQ C4 – Wireless  Noise Cancelling Headphones

  • They are very comfortable
  • They provide adequate volume
  • They pair easily and maintain the connection
  • They are foldable

What needs to be improved?

  • The frequency response and presence for mids, and highs

Final thoughts

MIXX StreamQ C4 8

The MIXX StreamQ C4 – Wireless Headphones – Noise Cancelling Headphones are extremely comfortable to wear and I think they are a good value for their $50 price. IMHO, they lack a certain frequency presence and detail primarily across the mids and highs. They will work for many people as on-the-go headphones.

Price: $49.99

  2. I appreciate the review of cheaper headphone options. I need something more for the calls than for quality audio so a decent headphone/mic with a good battery life is important.
