Meizu Live AI true wireless headphone experience: Will headphones with AI sound better?

As early as the launch of Meizu 21 Pro, Meizu launched the "All in AI" concept that no longer makes traditional mobile phones.

By introducing AI functions into Flyme AIOS, mobile phones can achieve more content generation and AI automation functions, reducing users’ repetitive operations and making them more comfortable to use.

While making mobile phones, Meizu is also trying to combine other products with AI.

They resurrected their "Live" headphone brand, found old friends Hengxuan and Lou, used the flagship chip and made a set of coaxial ring iron units, and then launched their new generation of true wireless noise-cancelling headphones Meizu Live AI enables full coverage of All in AI from mobile phones to peripheral products.

Let’s take a look at the packaging and appearance first. Meizu still uses a traditional design here.

The classic square top and bottom cover packaging has a thick frosted film between the earphones and the upper cover. Replacement earplugs are placed under the earphone box. Counting the ones pre-installed on the earphones, there are three sizes: S, M, and L, to meet the needs of most people. Basic adaptation requirements.

The charging box of the earphones has a classic pebble shape, and the white shell has a matte finish, giving it a solid and smooth feel.

The inside of the box adopts a magnetic groove design with the earphones completely exposed. The gloss-treated earphones and matte charging box are combined to create a visual contrast.

The box retains the physical pairing button, which is placed directly next to the charging port at the bottom to ensure the integration of the charging box. The design supports long press to enter pairing mode. The operation of the headset is more in line with the public's control logic and is very intuitive to use.

The earphones are a standard design with ear stems. The grooves from the body to the ear stems can just fit into the ears. The earphones can be easily "placed" on the earphones. The feeling of wearing them is very low, and they will not be too uncomfortable when worn for a long time. tired.

The earphones use a thick ear handle design with touch control function. By pinching the ear handle back and forth, you can realize playback, pause and song switching functions, and slide up and down to adjust the volume.

In terms of configuration, Meizu Live AI is still the old combination of Hengxuan and Sony.

The main control chip is Hengxuan BES's new flagship product BES2600Z, which supports Bluetooth 5.3 and LHDC transmission encoding. When LHDC mode is turned on, it can achieve up to 24bit 192kHz lossless transmission and support Hi-Res Audio.

The stability of the Bluetooth connection is also good. As a flagship true wireless noise-canceling headset, Meizu Live AI performs well when connecting to a mobile phone to play shooting games. There is no separate low-latency mode, and there is basically no obvious delay when playing "Peace Elite" in normal mode.

For noise reduction, Meizu uses Sony's CXD3784 noise reduction chip. There are multiple levels to choose from in the "Meizu Headphones" application. You can also choose smart noise reduction to let the headphones adjust independently. The highest gear can achieve a noise reduction depth of 45dB.

In daily use, Live AI's sound insulation is good. When you put on headphones and turn on music in the office, it can better block the sound of the air conditioner and keyboard. In a quiet environment, it is not necessary to use high-end noise reduction. Noise reduction needs to be turned on in some coffee shops that have their own background music and are surrounded by many people talking.

Compared with the mode with high noise reduction intensity, the only mode with independent adjustment of the headset will be more commonly used.

In terms of battery life, Meizu Live AI has 5.5 hours of battery life with noise reduction turned on, and 7 hours with noise reduction turned off. The charging box can provide 22 hours of battery life for the headphones when fully charged.

It's a bit far from the 8-hour benchmark for a single earphone, but it's fine when used with the charging box.

For the sound, Meizu Live AI is equipped with an 11mm dynamic woofer and a 5mm LIVE PRO moving iron unit jointly developed with Knowles. The two units are coaxially arranged to form a coil-iron dual unit combination. This unit selection and structure can reduce the mutual influence between various frequency bands, and is also a friendly choice for true wireless headphones with limited space in the body.

Meizu uses Knowles' best listening curve in its headphones to optimize the basic sound output of the headphones, so that the sound performance will not be dull even if users do not make adaptive adjustments.

As for the AI ​​part, Meizu uses "AI Smart Hearing" in-ear sound field customization technology to dynamically adjust the sound output to make the sound more in line with the user's ear canal characteristics and environment.

To put it simply, this technology is similar to the technology of home audio room detection and calibration. It first emits test sound waves through headphones, and then captures the feedback of the sound waves to obtain ear canal and hearing characteristics, as well as the current wearing fit data of the headphones. Use data with Audiodo Personal Sound technology to perform dynamic audio adjustments to automatically customize the listening effect.

In terms of listening, Meizu Live AI performs pretty well.

The sound style and promotion are mainly for pop music. The design of the moving iron focusing on high frequencies and the moving coil focusing on low frequencies can create a clear sense of distance between the two. There is a considerable distance between the singer's singing position and the background. This effect of neither being close to the subject nor being confused with the background allows people to focus more on singing and makes listening more comfortable.

The low-frequency performance is very full, which is the fullness and power required by traditional popular sound effects. However, the sound performance is not blurry, and the sound tends to show off detail sharpness and resolution, which sounds relatively refreshing.

The sound field performance is relatively loose, without the cramped feeling of being trapped in a small recording studio. The headphones also handle the end of the instrument very naturally, rarely stopping right.

Overall, Meizu Live AI is a true wireless noise-canceling headset with standard overall performance and sound style.

The price of 599 yuan includes strong noise reduction, lossless transmission, and complete app control that does not require in-depth adaptation. Meizu has achieved all the functions and infrastructure configurations that mobile phone manufacturers need to have on headphones. Except for the battery life, which is a little bit weak, everything else is basically fully equipped.

In terms of sound, the overall quality of the headphones is pretty good, and the listening experience is a light and popular feeling that caters to the current public pursuit. The texture is full, the sound details and vocals are thoughtfully portrayed, and combined with high-standard sound sources, Live AI is a bit like Meizu Live in the performance of some musical instruments and sound details.

If you are a Meizu mobile phone user, then Live AI is indeed the only choice.

If you are a non-Meizu Android user who also supports LHDC, you want to choose a true wireless wireless phone with no brand threshold at a price that is higher than the entry price of 2-300 yuan, but not enough to upgrade to 1,500 yuan. For noisy headphones, Meizu Live AI is also worth considering.

"Buy it, it's not expensive."
