The Meizu POP in our review is completely wireless Bluetooth earphones, which have emerged from a very successful Chinese company.
The campaign was not only successfully financed, but the earphones have now arrived on the open market.
As so often with the Chinese company, the Meizu POP looks very interesting at first glance. The wireless Bluetooth earphones should score not only by a chic look but also because of smart features and especially because of a great sound.
Let’s see in the Meizu POP can really convince in the test!
Meizu POP: Specifications
|Battery:||85mAh + 700mAh case|
|Charging Time:||2.5-3h (with case 15 hours)|
|Dimensions:||5.50 x 5.50 x 3.50 cm|
Meizu POP: Design and Appearance
The Meizu POP in the analisis is completely wireless Bluetooth earphones. This means the earplugs are not connected to a cable like most other Bluetooth earbuds but are completely separate.
As a result, a little more electronics must, of course, be installed in each earplug, which also makes the earplugs a bit bigger.
However, the Meizu POP for completely wireless earphones is still comparatively compact.
There is a button underneath this high-gloss backside, which is a little bit hard to press if you have the earphones in your ears.
Depending on how often you press this button, different functions are triggered, from Play/Pause to various language assistants everything is possible.
Meizu POP looks very high quality and well made. Here I have no qualms that the earphones can even survive a fall.
As with most wireless earphones, the Meizu POP comes with a small transport box included in the delivery, which also serves to charge the earphones.
The transport box is made entirely of aluminum and looks incredibly robust and solid, but also comparatively heavy.
As usual, a battery is installed in the transport box. If you put the earphones in the transport box, they will be loaded.
Meizu speaks of a battery life of 2.5 hours for the earphones. In addition, the box can charge the earphones around 10x, resulting in an effective life of 15 hours.
Practically the earphones last around 2.5-3.0 hours, so the value of Meizu is good.
Bonus points are available for the excellent connection quality of the earplugs.
This is often quite problematic with completely wireless earphones, especially the connection between earplugs A and B.
However, the signal seems to be pretty good on the Meizu POP in the test.
In normal use, there were no interruptions in connection, only when you cover your ears with both hands, the earplugs start to stutter.
Meizu POP: Comfort
The Meizu POP sit, if you use them correctly, extremely tight in the ears! Falling out is almost impossible, even if you do intensive sports.
These are almost too tight for me. I think these are the first earphones, which I intentionally used a bit looser.
No, the Meizu POP does not hurt or squeeze too much, but you feel just when you’re sitting quietly already, that you have something in your ears.
Also, I could feel a slight warming of my ears, which I usually do not have with in-ears.
Nevertheless, the bottom line is just for the good grip a positive conclusion, as far as the comfort.
Even if there are certainly better earphones for relaxing.
Meizu POP: Sound
The sound of completely wireless earphones is always such a thing. What about the Meizu POP in our test?
The best sounding completely wireless earphones I’ve had in my hand were the Optoma NuForce BE Free8.
But even these had their weaknesses. I assume that the manufacturers have to pack so much electronics, batteries, etc. in the earplugs, comparatively little resonant body for the actual driver.
Let’s start with the beginning, the heights. These are absolutely clean and clear, without being too pointed or too exhausting.
I would say that Meizu has almost hit the perfect middle ground of clarity and softness. The detailed presentation is good to very good.
The mids are a bit lowered, probably to put more focus on the bass. However, the representation of votes is still good enough.
However, these slightly lowered mids give the Meizu POP a slightly thinner sound.
What about the basses? Similar to the Optoma, the Meizu POP fight something with a smaller sound volume. However, the bass is still the best I have heard so far in completely wireless earphones.
This is not super voluminous, but more than compensates for this with its incredibly high aggressiveness and dynamics.
Especially faster and deeper bass is the Meizu POP, such as in My Way by Calvin Harris, Something Just Like This by The Chainsmokers or Walk on Water by Thirty Seconds to Mars.
Just Walk on Water by Thirty Seconds to Mars is a song that perfectly fits the sound signature of the Meizu POP in the analisis, similar to Whats Wrong by Pvris, to name two examples.
Difficulties with the Meizu POP are most likely with titles that have a warm sound signature. By nature, the earphones are a bit cooler, with a strong dynamic.
The resolution and also the stage are good for Bluetooth earphones. The latter is not huge, but it is still possible to identify individual instruments throughout the sound and to separate them spiritually.
Meizu POP: Conclusions and Reviews
The Meizu POP in our review set the bar even higher for completely wireless Bluetooth earphones. This applies to the sound as well as the rest of the earphones. But let’s start at the beginning.
The Meizu POP Wireless Bluetooth Earphones are impeccably made and look high quality. The same applies to the enclosed charging case, which is even made of aluminum and works with magnets to accommodate the earphones.
The battery life of the earphones is a good 2.5-3 hours, which can be extended by the charging case again up to 15 hours, if in between invites. Both reasonable, everyday values.
Let’s get to the sound. So far, it has always been that you have to accept cuts, due to the completely wireless design. This is a bit of the case, but basically, the Meizu POP sounds really great.
There are minor weaknesses in the sound volume, but the dynamics, detail and also the general, very lively sound signature knows to convince and does not have to hide behind other Bluetooth earphones. Add to that the excellent signal strength and quality.
In short, you are looking for the currently most recommended completely wireless Bluetooth earphones, because you found them with the Meizu POP. Even the price of around $90 is absolutely justified.
Meizu POP: Price and Where to buy cheaper?
At the moment, there is a good promotion of wireless headphones Meizu POP. Now you can buy them at a good and low price for only $91.99. This is a good offer that can compete with Apple Airpods.
