I’ve reviewed my fair share of wireless earbuds but nothing seems to come close to using a pair of wired earbuds. And now that more phones are being released without the 3.5mm headphone jack and only a USB-C port, your only options are to go with a pair of Bluetooth headphones/earbuds or a pair of USB-C earbuds like Moshi’s Mythro C Earphones.
The Moshi Mythro C USB Type-C Earphones has a brush aluminum exterior that makes it more premium that it is and that also helps with making the earbuds more durable.
The earbuds have an inline remote that houses a microphone for taking calls, a volume up and down buttons and a DJ Boost Button. Essentially, the DJ Boost Button will automatically boost your audio to make for a more full and immersive experience.
To use the DJ Boost Button on the Moshi Mythro C, you’ll need the Moshi Digital Audio app. The app lets you customize how your earbuds sound from the bass and treble and the highs and lows.
You can either use the Moshi preset to create your own. The app can also be used to update the firmware on the earbuds down the line.
The Moshi Mythro C sounds great with a lot of deep punchy bass and the built-in high-resolution audio (24-bit/96 kHz) with a Class G amplifier and digital-to-analog converter (DAC). The earbuds work with a number of phones with USB-C from the Pixel 3 XL, OnePlus 7 Pro, HTC U12+ and many more.
Moshi says that they’ve tested to ensure the widest compatibility for their Moshi Mythro C USB Type-C Earphones, so then there are no issues.
The earbuds also come with a velcro strap to help keep the cable together and in the box, there are 3 sizes of hybrid injection earbud tips (small, medium and large). The default earbud tips are the medium size and I found the earbuds to slip out of my ears, so now I’m using the small size and they fit perfectly.
One thing I did find annoying was that the earbud tips were fairly difficult to take off and swap out. I also wish that Moshi would have including a carrying case for the earbuds in the box, to make travelling with them easier.
The Moshi Mythro C USB Type-C Earphones are available now from the company’s website for $49 USD, which to put into comparison, a decent pair of wireless earbuds could set you back from $100-200 or more.
Overall, I really like the Moshi Mythro C USB Type-C Earphones, they sound great and work with just about any USB-C equipped phone out there.
- Sound great with deep bass
- Fits comfortably
- Premium look and feel
- Cheaper than other USB-C earbuds and wireless earbuds
- Ear tips are hard to swap out and remove
- No carrying case included
