Meizu EP-40 headphones ears-on

We recently got a set of Meizu EP-40 headphones in the office, and we decided to give them a whirl.

The headphones are designed to have a High Speed Response technology, which ideally minimizes the resistive impact they have on audio signals coming from devices. Here’s a full list of specs:

  • 7μm ultra-thin composite diaphragm
  • 8mm powerful drive unit
  • 14 0.05mm high-purity oxygen-free copper headphone wires
  • 3 earplugs in different sizes
  • Microphone and remote
  • High-speed Response Technology
  • Speaker impedance: 16 Ω
  • Sensitivity: 101dB SPL
  • Frequency response: 20Hz ~ 20KHz
  • Maximum input power: 10mW
  • Length: 1.2m
  • Plug: 3.5mm

Inside the vinyl box that’s designed to look like a record (get it? because records are reminiscent of… oh, nevermind) you’ll find the headphones surrounded by foam padding. The three earbud sizes are also housed here, so you have a place to store the sizes you aren’t using without the risk of losing them.

No, it’s not a roll of electrical tape… • It’s the Meizu EP-40 box!

The headphones also come with the usual “remote” wired on the cable. Nonetheless, it has your standard back/forward/play/pause functionality optimized for use on Meizu’s Flyme OS music app, found on the Meizu MX. On the back of the remote is a small mic pinhole, you can use the headset for proper voice calls.

The MEIZU EP-40 headphones with remote and microphone are available in any of Meizu’s retail stores in mainland China and Hong Kong for 269 CNY or HKD ($34). They’re also available via Meizu’s online shop here (Chinese).
