Mpow Jaws Neckband Wireless Bluetooth Headphones Review 2018
The rise of wireless Bluetooth headphones was always inevitable. The challenges that were once faced by wireless headphones have since been overcome, and the market reflects this. Wireless headphones were once associated with poor sound quality, and oh, how well this issue has been addressed. Modern day wireless Bluetooth headphones have gone leaps and bounds in terms of sound quality and design. Depending on preference, wireless speakers are usually produced in either earbud or over ear forms. Many have associated over ear headphones with comfort over earbud headphones, but things have changed. May I introduce earbuds with a neckband; now keep an open mind, these headphones can provide the benefits of being lightweight and a worry free fit (no more falling earbuds) all whilst being able to produce high-quality sound equal to over ear headphones.
What you need to know before deciding which Bluetooth headphones are right for you.
Is the product proven to be comfortable?
Usually popularity will be a good indicator of this; also, previous experience with different designs will, understandably, influence your search. The market has since switched from regular earbuds to in-ear earbuds back to traditional and sports earbuds. Regular earbud popularity skyrocketed with the release of the recent apple earbuds (since the release of IPhone 6).
Price Vs. Features.
Can you justify the price in comparison to the included features?
In the modern market earbuds range in price from $4.99 for the mass-produced headphones, to the top of the range earbuds, which can fetch around $280 (Bose).
Modern earbud features should include:
- Compatible with cell phones and other Bluetooth devices
- Easy access controls with play/pause (and call answer), volume control and next/previous track buttons
- High quality built-in microphone
- Metallic lock feature for earbuds to stay securely around your neck
- High quality stereo sound
- Waterproof (usually sweat proof)
- Noise cancelling!
Does this product make your life easier?
This is a must for wireless headphones; why would you purchase wireless headphones instead of regular earbuds if there were no practical benefits on offer? A good wireless earbud should be lightweight for comfort, and tangle free, to lengthen product life and for convenience. Many choose to purchase a wireless earbuds over a regular ones as long as they can match or exceed standard features offered in regular earbuds whilst providing the same high standard of practicality.
Is there adequate warranty to ensure Quality Control?
Your chosen headphones, which are also an investment, should be secured with a warranty in case of any faults or damages. Warranty should cover no less than 1 year.

My Wrap Up
Simply the pros outweigh the cons. All in all, I find this product to be surprisingly comfortable, even as a regular earbud fan. I would suggest going for the older MBH25 model, which is jam packed with features and comes in at $25.95 instead of its minimalistic big brother the MBH31.
