Not too many months ago, MEE Audio released the MATRIX 3 Bluetooth Wireless HD Headphone which is the successor to the MATRIX 2. This interesting looking over the ear headphone is adorned with denim trim and at first look appears to just be another trendy headphone. The MATRIX 3 headphone however packs quite a bit of high-fidelity tech into a compact and portable headphone. Let’s take a closer look and figure out what this headphone is all about.
MEE Audio MATRIX 3 Bluetooth Wireless HD Headphones Review
The MATRIX 3 headphone is primarily designed to be an HD headphone you can take anywhere. The matching dark denim case is excellent for travel around town or around the world. The folding design of the MATRIX 3 keeps it compactly snug inside its’ case until you’re ready to use it. Putting on the headphone you’ll immediately notice the comfortable earpads and headband sit quite nicely and don’t pinch like other streamline headphone designs. The MATRIX 3 doesn’t have tons of buttons or tiresome tech you don’t need. Just the essentials packed up in a light an durable headphone. So far, so good.
Pairing the MATRIX 3 Bluetooth Wireless HD Headphone is simple. Pressing the ON button for 6 seconds gets you into pairing mode straight away and connects flawlessly without headaches. From here, the world is yours. With a quick glance at the user guide you’ll have the ability to make and take calls, play and pause music, advance tracks or even pair 2 devices to the MATRIX 3 at the same time. It’s quite easy to use and has only 3 buttons total for all these functions. If you find yourself in a situation where you need to use it wired you’re covered because the MATRIX 3 includes an optional stereo audio cable. The MATRIX 3 boasts a 24hr – 28hr battery life depending on whether you’re jamming to music or talking on the phone. It also has a range of up to 30 feet. Really impressive.
As the name suggests, this Wireless HD Headphone is packed with clarity. The 40mm drivers have a frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz and the sound of this portable, streamline headphone will have you doing a double-take. The high frequencies are crisp and clear and that fidelity extends well down into the low frequencies. You won’t get incredible amounts of sub bass out of the MATRIX 3 but you’d be hard pressed to get this kind of high-fidelity from a Bluetooth headphone for well under $200.
The MEE Audio MATRIX 3 Bluetooth Wireless Headphone is just as impressive as the MATRIX 2 with the benefit of an upgraded look and full HD sound output. From price to portability to solid high-definition sound, the MATRIX 3 is yet another great headphone from MEE Audio.
