While I was browsing for Mpow headphones, saw that there are two models named Mpow H4 and Mpow H5, obviously first thing that I checked is the prices thinking that H5 must be an upgrade over H4 model !
To my surprise the H5 model was cheaper than H4 that too with Active Noise Cancellation !! So I was unable to understand how the next generation headphone from Mpow can be cheaper than the previous version !
And that made me write down this post, comparison of Mpow H4 vs Mpow H5 Over Ear Headphones.

- Both are supplied with protein ear pads which are comfortable for long time wearing.
- The have adjustable headband, and swiveling ear cups.

Mpow H4 Bluetooth Headphones
- Main differentiating point of this headphone is the Ear EQ

- APTX HI-FI Technology:
- Features CSR 8670 chip with aptX low-latency technology
- Which means you can watch movies without any lag in the leap movements
- Make sure that you are using a Bluetooth transmitter with aptX Low Latency, this will avoid any lag in video and audio sync, means no delay in leap movements of video to audio you are listening to from your TV set.
Mpow H5 Active Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones
- Main feature of H5 model is ANC
- Active Noise Cancelling Technology
- For sure the Mpow H5 is capable of reducing city traffic noise, airplane in-cab noise, or generator noise, hosever it has got some limitation that Human voice can not be eliminated using ANC in this case ! this is not good since many headphones in market today are capable of filtering human noises. However considering the cost point and purpose, this is acceptable performance.
So it is clear that if you are fan of particular EQ settings or want to play always with some frequencies, go for H4 (by spending more money !)
But if you are frequent traveler, then go for H5 with ANC that too at lower costs.
Rest things remains same between both the headsets including the comfort level and brand sound signature.
