Good / The Mpow Jaws Wireless Neckband Headphones have great battery life and all of the headset features work well. They are also very light and the magnetic clips on the side of the headset hold the earbuds in snugly.
Bad / The Mpow Jaws Wireless Neckband Headphones aren’t very comfortable for long term use, and their design of the earbuds makes it tricky for them to stay in your ears.
Verdict / For the price, you get a highly functional wireless neckband headset, but not a comfortable one.
Mpow Jaws Wireless Neckband Headphones Review
When I first started looking into getting wireless Bluetooth headphones, I wanted something cheap and straightforward that I could wear on walks, runs, or just around my neck if I wasn’t listening to audio.
I started researching some of the top-selling products on Amazon, and even though a lot of the products had good reviews, it took me awhile to find a pair of wireless neckband headphones that I could use on a daily basis. The Mpow Jaws Wireless Neckband Headphones are a top-rated Amazon product, but do they deserve the accolades or the trash can?
After leaving a bad review on Amazon for this product I received an email offering me another variation of the headphones in order to butter me up so that I’d change my review.
The major selling point of the Mpow Jaws Wireless Neckband Headphones is the low price. For only $25.99, you get Bluetooth headphones that work with your smartphone. However, for only $25.99, what do you get?
The Mpow Jaws Wireless Neckband Headphones have a similar design to other Neckband Bluetooth headphones/headsets. However, the back is thinner, and the sides are a bit thicker than some other models I have tested. They are very lite, and for the most part, the neckband if comfortable.
The cords of the earbuds are held in by two little metal brackets that can come off. I found that with the little brackets on, the earbuds would fall out if I tilted my head forward. Without the brackets securing the cords in place, the cords splay outwards and look quite ridiculous with how long they are. However, one cool thing is that they made the magnets very strong inside the part where the buds go back in the headset to rest, but unless you’re using the clips, it’ll look ridiculous.
The actual earbuds themselves have a similar design utilized in almost all of the other Mpow products with a slight tilt of the main speaker, and then the earbud goes in at a slight angle. This design works for a bit regarding functionality. But after extended use, you’ll find that they never stay in quite enough, and they will be prone to falling out. Not only that, but they don’t stay comfortable due to the angle which can create sore spots on your ear.
Some other budget wireless neckband headphones have a lot of bugs and promised features don’t work (one pair I tested you couldn’t lower the volume).
Fortunately, here, I found that the Mpow Jaws Wireless Neckband Headphones delivers on all of its features. It’s easy to pause, play, control audio, make commands to Siri, and it’s very easy to turn them on and off. Battery life is also excellent.
The Mpow Jaws Wireless Neckband Headphones sound OK, but I found some other headphones of the same price to sound a bit better. I think it’s due to the design of the headphones since the earbuds can’t get as good of a seal within my ear. I replaced the earbud tips with another brand, but that didn’t help either. Overall, mediocre to average sound for the price.
Mpow Jaws Wireless Neckband Headphones Review Conclusion
The Mpow Jaws Wireless Neckband Headphones are a decent pair of headphones that work well, sound OK, and have good battery life. However, their earbud design is not comfortable for extended use, and they don’t stay in.
This sub-par design extends to all other Mpow products of the same category. I’ve tested a few Mpow products over the years, and it seems they aren’t aware of the issue since their comfort level has not increased by any significant margin over the years.
