QCY QY8 Bluetooth Headphones Review



Rating: 4.5/5

What I Like: 

  • Excellent overall audio quality, with balanced low, mids and highs
  • Buttons feel good to use
  • Acceptable build quality
  • Handsome design
  • Comfortable fit
  • Decent battery life
  • Consistent signal

What I Don’t Like:

  • Included rubber tips do not feel very good quality
  • The part that holds the headphones to the ears is not very strong

Summary:  These headphones sound far better than they should given the price, and even outperform my previous favorite headphones audio quality wise. They improve on the audio balance, providing a more even mix of treble and bass. The only thing I don’t like about them is the little rubber bits that grip onto my ears: they’re made a thin and cheaper material and don’t do much. I ended up stealing the ones from my Mpow Swift and constructing what would be (to me) the best Bluetooth headphones I have ever found. Pictured above is the QCY headphones with the Swift ear inserts (I forgot to take them off before snapping the pics, sorry!). Even with the cheap rubber pieces they do stay in ear fine. I would recommend these headphones for those who like balanced audio with a good mix of bass and treble.
