For the past few weeks I’ve had the opportunity to review the MPow Thor Bluetooth Headphones, and I’m quite impressed with them, especially given their entry-level pricing at less than $40. This headset offers both wireless and wired connectivity, along with 8 hours of battery life. While they don’t offer active noise cancellation, the headset does a great job at passive noise cancellation.

Battery Life And Charging
The battery life of the MPow Thor Bluetooth Headphones is decent at 8 hours of playback time. Other headphones with this style offer a little better battery life, but 8 hours isn’t anything to frown about. It will take you about 2 or 3 hours to fully charge the headphones. While using an iPhone, you can see the battery level and percentage as well.
The MPow Thor Bluetooth Headphones offers excellent compatibility between devices by offering both Bluetooth 4.1 for wireless, and providing a 3.5mm audio cabled for wired use. While using the audio cable, you don’t need to power on the headphones, so you don’t have to worry about battery life, but you also won’t be able to take advantage of the mic and taking phone calls.
As with every pair of headphones, a lot of consumers’ decisions are based on sound quality. When it comes to the MPow Thor Bluetooth Headphones, I would say the sound is decent and is what’s expected at the sub-$50 price range. You won’t get the bass of fullness of Beats or Bose headphones, but at the entry and mid level price range, they are decent for all types of music. The volume was good and was able to drown out background noise as well.
I didn’t have too many issues with these headphones. In a heavily saturated area, I would get occasional audio drops, but those went away when I was at home without much interference. While the headphones are comfortable, they do put pressure on your ears after a while. MPow even recommends removing the headphones after 1-2 hours of use to give your ears a break.
Given the entry/mid-level pricing of the MPow Thor Bluetooth Headphones, I would recommend these to anyone looking at headphones in this price range. MPow has excellent customer service compared to other companies and they stand by their products. While the sound and features are lacking compared to high-end headphones, they are excellent for the price range they’re in.
