Wyze Headphones Review

Wyze headphones have superior noise cancellation and audio quality than you’d anticipate for the price. They’re a great value because of their beautiful appearance, adjustable EQ, and Amazon Alexa support. This method does come at a minor sonic cost, but it just means that the sound quality drops from excellent to good.


Wyze’s over-ear headphones appear and feel more luxurious than their price suggests. The thickly cushioned memory foam earpads and headbands are lined with non-tacky imitation leather. The right earcup’s touch-sensitive panel is a nice addition for fast muting headphone music and allowing ambient sound in. The Wyze app is supposed to include a Low ANC option as well, but it wasn’t available at the time of writing. Wyze Headphones include Amazon Alexa built-in, as well as an app that lets you change the EQ.

Although there is no hands-free Alexa support, you can summon it by tapping the touch-sensitive portion of the earcup twice. The headphones come with auto-play/pause as a basic function, which means that when you take them off, they pause the music and resume when you put them back on.


Wyze Headphones provide adequate noise cancellation, and the circuitry performs a good job of reducing low frequencies. Transparent mode lets in ambient sounds so you can hear others without taking off your headphones. The drivers sound more robust in powered mode (wired or wireless) than in passive mode. The bass response in Active mode is more powerful, although it’s difficult to say whether this is due to the ANC’s influence on the sound character.

The kick drum loop on Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “No Church in the Wild” gets enough high-mid presence for its attack to retain some power, but background vinyl hiss and crackle are pushed forward a bit further. The brass, strings, and vocals in the higher registers have a pleasing clarity that keeps the sound balanced. We were able to understand every word we recorded using the Voice Memos app on an iPhone 8, albeit there were a few exceptions.


  • Noise cancellation is superb both active and silently. 
  • Overall, the sound is quite good and the price is very reasonable.


  • Audio with a lot of shaping isn’t for purists. 
  • Generally, noise cancellation is only passable.


you can get bass-forward audio, Amazon Alexa support, adjustable EQ, and decent noise cancellation with the Wyze Headphones. The noise cancellation isn’t bad, but it’s not enough to have you run out and buy them. There are few good ANC options for those on a tight budget. The in-ear Apple Airpods Pro and the  Marshall Mid ANC are our two favorite inexpensive sets.
