A Review of the Super EQ S1 Bluetooth Headphones

Team Out of Town Blog Hub ( – When it comes to headphones, one, if not the most, important feature would be its active noise cancellation. Headphones are preferred when it comes to noise-canceling and better audio quality compared to earbuds, plus, battery life is longer compared to the latter. If you’re looking for the best headphones investment, here’s an option you may want to consider–the SuperEQ S1 Bluetooth Headphones.

Audio Quality

Wearing it for the first time, you’ll easily get impressed with its effective active noise-canceling feature. It blocks out unnecessary low-frequency noise, without completely eliminating vocal sounds. The best part would be the transparency mode, which allows you to be aware of your surroundings by letting you hear without having to take off your headphones.

Volume-wise, it’s best set at 60% to fully enjoy more than 30 hours of battery life. We love the bass, too–not overpowering but immersive. If you’re into groovy tunes you’ll love how your headphones play out your favorite songs.

Design and Ergonomics

The SuperEQ S1 comes in white and black with a touch of red, both looking sleek and stylish. Cups are generously leather-padded, fitting perfectly on your ear. The cushion feels a bit tight-fitting at first which actually helps prevent sound-leaking, but eventually, you’ll feel comfortable with the wear for long hours. We love these headphones because they’re collapsible that can fit a pouch and you can easily stash them in your bag.

Battery Life and Usage

Battery life may also depend on how high or low your volume can go, but as mentioned above, setting at 60% will maximize your battery life to 30, even up to 45 hours! A charging port is found beneath the right cup using a micro-USB charging cable. When the battery flashes red light once every 5 seconds, it means the battery level is low. Continuous red light means its charging, while white means that it’s fully charged. Headphones turn off automatically if not in use after 10 minutes.

Controls and Connectivity

SuperEQ S1 can both be wired or wireless. The wired option is best for those who want to focus on work, while wireless may be best for those who want to be on the go. A wired connection is made possible by a 3.5mm jack which you can connect to devices such as laptops, phones, or iPods.

Wireless connection, on the other hand, is via Bluetooth. To connect, press the MFB button for five seconds, and wait for the red and blue light to flash. Turn on your device’s Bluetooth, and connect to the SuperEQ+model. Apart from mobile devices, you can also connect them to a TV. A flashing red and white light signals that your headphones and the device are pairing, while timeout happens when the lights turn off after five minutes. If the headphones and device aren’t within effective range, it disconnects.
