After reviewing a series of premium headphones from Fischer Audio, Kennerton, Klipsch, Sony, Plantronics, I have a headphones here from the other end of the price and quality. Mixcder is not an unfamiliar brand for regular readers of my blog, as I have reviewed other Mixcder products like the Flyto, ShareMe 5, ANC-G5.
The Mixcder Drip sports a single-tone piano black glossy finish all around the exterior, which makes it understated and less-frills. The headband and earcups are plushed with synthetic leather, and the overall headphones are made of lightweight plastic material, with metal headband support.
The buttons protrude more compared to the ShareMe 5, and positioned at a higher point, which makes them easier to access.
The audio quality is similar to the Mixcder ShareMe 5, where treble lacks the bright qualities and the mids and bass are favoured. If you listen to strong treble music, these headphones will provide a balance in the audio. And like many headphones, after extended listening, I got used to the veiled treble and slowly adjusted to the sound signature. If you like to listen to music at high volumes and prefers more bass, the Mixcder Drip will be enjoyable.
I compared the wireless audio with wired audio and I detect no difference in the audio balance. Once the battery runs out after 20 hours, just plug direct wire to the audio player to continue enjoying the music. The Drip also supports voice calls. It may lack the audio split feature found on the ShareMe 5, but I find the Bluetooth connection more stable, and it is less expensive.
The Mixcder Drip is available at Amazon for US$39.99. The audio tuning is best suited for strong modern music that requires some taming at the highs. The overall plastic build offers stylish looks but lacks durability, and its gloss surface easily attracts grease marks and scratches.
