Meizu EP52 earphones review

Meizu EP52 earphones are a very interesting solution for those who want comfort and quality at the right price.

Meizu EP52 earphones come in an excellent pack containing earphones, a cardboard case with various in-ear adapters, the micro usb cable and a silicone case for everyday transport with magnetic closure.

The headset is among those with the headband that rests on the neck, a bow in silicone very pleasant to the touch and very malleable with a magnetic connection on the back of the in-ear so that once you let it dangle they do not go too far around.

On the right side we find all the electronics needed to manage the headset: power button, volume controls, status LED, micro usb port for charging and microphone.

Once worn during music playback, you will hear all the sound quality of these earphones with deep bass quality hard to find in the earphones of the same range. Here, probably the adoption of Qualcomm CSR8645 chip expresses all its value by providing support also to aptX protocol.

IPX5 certified, they have a coating that protects them from water as from sweat: calling them waterproof is a bit ‘forcing’ but undoubtedly we can let them accompany us during our workouts as long as you don’t throw them in the water.

Compatible with bluetooth 4.1 that allows a fast and stable pairing, has a 130 mAh battery that provides between 7 and 8 hours of battery life or about 150 hours of standby time.

The built-in microphone does not allow you to interact with features such as Google Assistant, but it does offer good audio quality during phone calls: no one has ever complained to not hear me on the other side of the phone.

Enviable quality / price ratio

The Meizu EP52 have a cost that is around 40€/50$, but you will not struggle to find them at 21€/27$ as happened in my case, that I bought them on Gearbest.

This is really a great price: just looking at the level of materials and packaging should be positioned much higher, but fortunately it is not.

Wireless resting on the neck: are they comfortable?

For some time I have ignored the earphones of this type that on the one hand are wireless, but on the other they always have the presence of the cable albeit in a limited way.

After trying out a couple, however, I can say that it is a very convenient solution: our smartphone can be safely closed in the pocket of a jacket or elsewhere, and the headset even if it comes out of the ear we are almost certain that it will not be lost.

Moreover if we have to remove them from our ears for a moment, we can comfortably let them fall on our chest without having to be forced to hold them.

So yes, it is a decidedly comfortable solution that adapts to different areas of use from sports to moments of leisure when you do not want to give up some music or a podcast while remaining comfortable, or even driving.

A new listening experience

With the introduction of improved silicone material, the EP52 has a more streamlined design that balances flexibility and toughness. As a result, you’ll enjoy a better and more comfortable listening experience.

Battery life

Aside from the low power consumption technology of the EP52, it’s also equipped with a 130 mAh large-capacity battery. This ensures eight hours of music playback, 150 hours of standby time with Bluetooth turned on, or 700 hours when the headset is turned off. Charging the EP52 only takes two hours.

IPX5 waterproof and Bluetooth 4.1

The EP52 is IPX5 certified, which means that your earphones are protected from water from any direction, so you no longer need to worry about damaging them with sweat. The EP52 also adopts the British CSR 8645 Bluetooth chip and the Qualcomm® aptX™ audio algorithm. With Bluetooth 4.1 support, the EP52 provides a reliable connection and an excellent audio experience.

Hall effect sensor and magnets

In addition to being able to snap the EP52 earbuds together with its magnets, the earbuds are now also equipped with a Hall effect sensor. When you’re not using the headset, simply snap the earbuds together to pause your music or end a phone call. If the EP52 earbuds are snapped together for 5 minutes, the device will automatically turn off.

Bio-cellulose diaphragm and unique design

The bio-cellulose diaphragm and the unique design of the EP52 enlarge the vibration area of the diaphragm and increase the vibration amplitude. This way, you can hear every single sound transmitted, as well as enjoy heavy bass music during your exercises.

As light as a feather

The EP52 is a magician of weight. Using new materials, an improved structure, and a carefully balanced design, the weight is distributed to your shoulders and neck. Each earbud weighs only 3 grams, so they won’t interfere with your workout.
