The OneOdio A70 is designed for DJs on-the-go, which is why it features a single side flip foldable design. This allows the user to quickly fold it up, chuck it into the headphone pouch, and off you go. Its outer frame is made mostly of plastic and faux leatherette covering the earcup and headband areas. On the sides of the earcups, it bears an oval shape, with a brushed aluminium design, and the headband is adjustable up to 10 levels.
Within the earcups, there are the left and right indicators. On the left earcup, you’ll find the microUSB port for charging, and the 6.35mm audio jack for studio equipment. On the right earcup, that’s where you’ll find the volume control and power buttons, together with the 3.5mm audio jack which has a jack lock design by plugging the audio jack in, and turning it.
The OneOdio A70 has a comfortable headband on the top with ample cushioning, and the same goes for the soft memory foam in the earcups. The earcups can be removed for easier access to replacing the earcup foams. While the headphone is comfortable, I did find the adjustable levels to be a bit short, but maybe it’s because I have a big head. It would’ve been nicer if the headphone’s headband can extend just a little longer.
The faux leatherette on the OneOdio A70 is comfortable on the skin, but after long hours of use, it does gather a bit of sweat. However, if you’re in an air-conditioned room, then this shouldn’t be a problem for you.
When taking off the headphones and resting it on my neck, I like that it can also swivel so the earcups don’t stick onto your face.
The OneOdio A70 is a good pair of headphones for music listening in my case, even without ANC technology. The headphones work right out of the box, so there’s no app for you to fumble with. When I’m not listening to music on my phone, I plug it into the PC for work using the 3.5mm audio jack. The foldable design is also great for storage when I’m heading out.
The volume and power buttons do take a bit of time to recognize which button is which, but after a while, you’ll be able to distinguish them with no problems. When long pressing the volume buttons, you can also go to the previous/next track. Long pressing the power button also access your speed dial on your phone, while a single press would pause the music.
There’s no customization of sound or settings for the headphones, so you’re stuck with the factory settings that came with it. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, just something you should know.
The OneOdio A70 works really well, and surprisingly it offers really good audio quality. The highs are bright, mids are quite underwhelming, but the bass has good performance. The mids feels like it gets buried by how much bass there is, but this should be good news for those who likes a lot of bass in their music. This headphone would sound great for pop and EDM music, and not so much for instrumentals or acoustics.
In terms of volume, the headphones can go really loud. For my use, I felt it was too loud even at the 60% volume mark. So, I think the sweet spot is at the 50% volume mark.
When it comes to call quality, I initially thought the headphones didn’t have a microphone because I couldn’t find the microphone hole. But to my surprise when I received a call, the headphones did have a microphone, and I even made sure by going to another room without bringing my phone.
I could hear the caller clearly, and the caller could also hear me clearly without any distortion. My voice in the call was described as clear with good volume, as if my mouth was right in front of the mic.
On a full charge, the OneOdio A70 could last me the entire week with sparing use. I only use it for casual music listening on my phone, and online video call meetings on the PC. Cumulatively, it could get me 47 hours of usage, which is quite close to OneOdio’s claim of up to 50 hours playtime.
The OneOdio A70 uses microUSB for charging, but I would’ve liked to see USB Type-C instead. Charging from zero to full takes about two hours.
The OneOdio A70 wireless headphones are a great, easy to use pairs of headphones, especially for when you’re stuck at home during the pandemic. It provides comfort, and decent audio quality, especially in terms of bass so you can have those personal raves at home. Priced below RM200, it’d be a great desktop/smartphone companion, seeing as how you can easily switch between connectivity modes.
