Mifo proves a new brand can be best in class

It’s not every day a totally new brand steps out to take the limelight away from established players. And yet Mifo seems to have accomplished that and more, creating an original product from scratch in one of the toughest categories from competitive and engineering standards: True wireless earbuds.

Mifo O5 true wireless earbuds features fact check

Mifo has not skimped on features with their O5 true wireless earbuds. From the monster 2,600mAh charging case to the uninterrupted 7 hours of play time, these earbuds deliver everything they promise.

On top of that, Mifo includes quality metals on every inch of the product, giving it a sturdy, durable feel. Even the packaging and presentation looks lux, which taken as a whole eliminates buyer’s remorse from the moment you open the box.

Mifo has come to the table with one of the strongest next generation true wireless offerings we have ever seen. That’s no easy feat for a new brand to pull off, and we’re very excited to see what they come up with next.

While they aren’t perfect, Mifo’s O5 true wireless earbuds are the best compromise between fit, sound quality, and value money can buy. They handily match even the best true wireless offering from Bose at less than half the price, while managing to look and feel more durable.

Pros

  • Top quality sound. The Mifo O5 earbuds are loud and rich at both ends of the spectrum.
  • No slip fit. Try as we might, these little buggers would not come loose or fall out. Perfect for active lifestyles.
  • Best in class battery life. There's no denying Mifo has achieved the longest battery life in true wireless earbuds.
  • True Bluetooth 5 signal. High quality chipset and firmware means zero interruptions and long distance listening with no issues.
  • Smart pairing functionality. Pick them up, they pair. Put them down, they disconnect. It's that easy with the Mifo O5s.
  • Complete waterproof protection, which includes full submersion in 3 feet of water for extended periods.

Cons

  • Small on ear buttons require practice. You'll need to get used to the tiny on ear buttons that control various features of the Mifo O5.
  • Case is a bit heavy. While some may prefer a hefty feel, the 2600mAh battery and metal casing is heavier than most true wireless earbuds.
  • Not great on calls. Thanks to the earbud form factor and mic positioning, background noise is exaggerating when making phone calls.
