Mixcder 872 HD came in sealed box with the standard accessories for this type of headphones. Besides the headphones, the box contains USB charging cable, 3.5mm audio cable which is quite long (it measures 1.2m) and, of course, the thing that most of us don’t read, the instruction manual.
Unfortunately, pouch of some sort didn’t come in the package, but we believe that you will manage to carry them around without hassle. It would be good to read manual because usage of these headphones is a unique experience and takes a minute or two to get used to it.

Design and Build quality
Mixcder 872 HD headphones are mainly made out of plastic, but it’s a durable, high-quality plastic. Cushions that fit the ears and the one for the head are made out of some kind of artificial leather, but look and feel very pleasant though very solid.
The combination of black and silver colors looks splendid on them, and they will fit almost every color that you wear; if you are in that kind of thing. Audio cable is made from tangle-free materials and is pretty strong, but it seems too thin for our taste.
On the outside of the left headpiece, there are controls for powering the device on (also for answering and hanging up the phone calls), playing/pausing the music, toggle Bluetooth on and off, even the NFC chip for easier connection with your device. Buttons are very clicky and first-grade quality. On the bottom of the headphone, there are 3.5mm audio jack, microphone, and LED that shows different operations depending on the light color.
On the outside of the right headpiece, there are swappable controls for volume and track skipping. Controls are pretty intuitive once you learn to use them. Bellow the right headpiece there is a micro USB charging port and another microphone.Overall design and build quality feels premium, and you would have never guessed that these headphones are almost dirty cheap.
Ergonomics of the Mixcder 982 HD Headphones
These are on-ear headphones, and they fit perfectly to your ears. Because they are very soft, you can wear them for hours and feel as comfortable as the first time you put them on your head. They are not too heavy and are quite compact so you can easily carry them anywhere you roam. When you wish to put them in a bag, just fold the earphones and voilà, they fit everywhere.
Technical specification of the Mixcder 872 HD headphones includes 40mm audio drivers, whose sensitivity is 93dB and impedance is 32Ohms. Frequency response ranges between 20Hz and 20KHz and rated power is around 20mW.
We were very surprised by the quality and loudness of sound on these headphones. Bass feels pretty natural, full and is very present in a mix. High and mid-tones are very clear and plenty loud. Of course, depending on the device you play music from, the genre of music and personal taste, you can set the equalizer the way you want and get the best results.
Mixcder 872 HD headphones can be used via 3.5mm audio cable or wirelessly, via Bluetooth. Bluetooth version on board is 4.0, so it will be generous on the battery life. Transmission distance can be up to 10m but in reality, 8-9m is the farthest if you wish to retain good sound quality. Also, you can connect your device the easier way, via NFC. Just set your phone against the earpiece that contains NFC chip, pair it and it is ready to go.
Battery life of the Mixcder 872 HD Headphones
These headphones have 360mAh lithium-ion battery embedded in them. It takes between 1 and 2 hours to charge them fully and after charging you can listen to your music for 20 hours straight. Talking time on a single charge is around 18 hours (claimed by manufacturer) and standby time is more than 500 hours which is truly impressive. (We didn’t have the opportunity to test this claim) Of course, when you drain the battery and are not in a position to charge it you can connect them with an audio cable and continue to enjoy where you left off.
