I knew beforehand that Matrix 2 supposed to be a full size over ear headphones, but I didn’t expect a packaging box to be that slim, even for a folding pair of cans. Both the front and the back of the packaging box have a high res picture of Matrix 2 that almost ready to pop out of the carton. As usual, you can read a plethora of useful info going over the spec, controls, and the technology behind these headphones. The part that stood out for me the most was Bluetooth 4.0 support with apt-X and AAC codecs and up to 22 hours of playback time. Perhaps it’s not exactly groundbreaking by the standards of today's releases, but considering these headphones came out 2 years ago – I think it was impressive how Meelec future proofed their design.
Out of the box you get a very slim form fitted hard shell case with a carbon fiber finish to match the headphone look. Obviously, it’s not a real carbon fiber and rather a printed (or stamped) finish, but nevertheless it looks sharp and feels like a quality case. Along with a case, the other included accessories were usb to micro-usb charging cable and a basic 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable. I believe during Matrix 2 initial introduction it was a time when a lot of companies were transitioning from AAA batteries to rechargeable batteries. So this is another example of how Meelec made the right choice introducing a higher capacity rechargeable battery with a common smartphone/tablet micro-usb connector. As a backup, in case if you run out of juice after continuous 22hr playback, you can use any standard or included 3.5mm cable to driver these headphones from HO of your audio source.
As I already clued you in, Matrix 2 folds flat for a very compact storage. This is where I have a little gripe with a design. Perhaps the rotation joint between the headband and the yoke (y-fork part holding earcups) will wear out after some time, but out of the box and even after a few weeks into my reviews I felt it was still stiff and I had to apply a little bit of force to rotate them. I’m used to headphones with looser joints that allow an easier “self-adjustment” rotation of earcups around my ears. I have a feeling they might get looser after awhile, and my impression is based after first 2 weeks of use.
But regardless of that, the idea of folding flat design with a slim case is great when you are traveling or just concerned about safety storage of your headphones. Also, just like you find a faux carbon fiber finish on the exterior of the storage case, you can see and feel the matching finish on outside of earcups and the top of the headband, except it’s printed on a softer vinyl material. When it comes to carbon fiber finish, there is a very fine line between tacky and classy, and Matrix 2 definitely fits the classy definition of it. With an exception of plushy padding covered by soft pleather on the inner side of headband, the rest of the material is a lightweight durable plastic with a nice soft touch finish. This matte finish was actually great in resisting fingerprints, a common problem with other glossy piano finish headphones.
The headband height adjustment has a precise click mechanism and you can see inside a reinforcement metal steel band which bends and twists without any creaks or squeaks. In general, Matrix 2 has a very comfortable clamping force and it was great to wear these headphones for extended period of time. Just don’t expect too much noise isolation, due to earpads being a bit on a shallow side and in combination with softer clamping force. Though earpads were not as beefy, the opening was large enough for a comfortable fitment without my ears touching the driver. The only other comment I have about overall design is that I wish L/R marking outside of earcups would stand out more for an easier ID.
With a closer look at both earcups, you will find a lot of physical control buttons and a few other ports. Unlike some other manufacturers who try to combine controls into multi-function buttons, here Meelec partitioned almost every control with a separate dedicated button.
Starting with a left earcup, you have a microphone and 3.5mm headphone port, though port comes out from a side on the back rather than traditionally from the bottom. Not really a showstopper, just something different, and perhaps more convenient to use with a right angle 3.5mm audio cable. A three dedicated button controls on this earcup are for Power (and Call), Volume down, and Volume up. To distinguish the buttons without looking at it, Power button is smooth while Volume buttons have a bump so you can find them easier by sliding a finger.
The right earcup has micro-usb charging port with a tight cover, and three dedicated transport control buttons with Skip next/prev and Play/Pause in the middle. Here, the middle button is smooth while skip buttons have a bump to easily distinguish these as you slide your finger. It does take a short while to get used to this arrangement, especially since other headphones use Play/Pause/Call while here Call is together with Power button. Also, due to a distinct set of control buttons on each side, I was able to use that as L/R side guidance without even needing to look up earcup marking.
When it comes to Bluetooth wireless performance, it was in line with most of the other wireless headphones I tested in the past. Pair up was fast and easy, and audio performance was solid across open space of 35-40ft. Within working range, I didn’t experience any hiccups or drops. Furthermore, Matrix 2 also supports NFC pair up which some people might find convenient. When it comes to making calls, I feel a little awkward doing that with full size headphones because they cover my ears and I can’t hear myself while talking and end up shouting. But if you receive a call during your music listening session, it’s always convenient to be able to pick it up without taking headphones off.
Even so in the past people were looking at Bluetooth wireless headphones for convenience of cutting the cord, today most of the consumers put wireless sound quality on an equally important level. With introduction and support of apt-X codec (I’m 100% Android so it’s important for me) sound quality definitely went up for many headphones, thus everything comes down now to a driver design and a sound tuning.
After close to 100hrs of burn in, I found Matrix 2 to have a balanced smooth clear sound signature. Low end has not a bad extension down to a sub-bass with a moderate rumble and a less aggressive relaxed mid-bass, all under control and without spilling into mids. It was great to hear a bass slightly north of neutral and without any bloat. Mids were warm and smooth, with lower mids being thicker while upper mids being pushed slightly back (not recessed though). I went back and forth with mids, the reason why I got close to 100hrs of burn in, and came to a conclusion they were lacking a bit of clarity and definition. But it was a very easy fix with 3dB boost around 3kHz which had a significant improvement effect especially on vocals, making them less nasal. Treble was smooth and a little bit rolled off, but still clear and not sibilant. I'm usually not a big fan of EQing a sound, especially when it comes to wireless performance, but I really felt these headphones were worth it.
In my opinion it was very impressive to review a design of full size Bluetooth wireless headphones released a few years back where it still feels ahead of the curve in comparison to some other recent releases. After a small EQ correction, I found Matrix 2 to really shine with a smooth balanced sound signature and some surprising clarity and details (again, taking EQ boost at 3kHz into consideration). They are not intended to indulge “Beats” bassheads or to persuade seasoned audiophiles or to offer dead-quiet noise isolation during your public transportation ride. What they intended for is to give you hours of uninterrupted and non-fatigue listening pleasure without reaching to your phone or tablet since all the controls are right around your ears. Based on its sound quality (including support for BT4.0 + aptX), build quality, extended battery life, flexibility of using both wired and wireless, and a cool storage case – Meelec Matrix 2 is one heck of a value under $90!
I compared a bunch of headsets some much more expensive and one which was half the cost of the Maxtrix2.
Headphones I considered ran quite the gamut such as the Sony MDR10RBT, MDR1RBT, MDR-ZX750BN, Harmon Kardon BT, SMS, Samsung Level One, Bluedio R+ Legend, and many, many, other lesser known.
The difficulty came in the form of my requirements:
The features that became non-negotiable for me ended up being Bluetooth 4.0, aptx, NFC, audio cable capable, long running time on a charge, and some capability to fold. Also important to me was that I did not particularly want a huge set of cans as I have a small head and don't care to look silly with overly large cans sitting on my head. I was also concerned that some models will just be too big even on the smallest adjustment setting.
Most of the competition got weeded out with my Bluetooth 4.0 requirement. So basically based on the previous reviews I feel the only real chance I took on these headphones was if they would fit without being too large. They fit well enough although not quite perfect but close enough to keep because the sound and feature set these cans have is just awesome. I was really surprised be the voice activated dialing and clarity while taking and making calls. Not a show stopper but a real plus for sure. Oh and also, my headphones did come with a micro USB charging interface so I guess MEElectronics got the memo on that one and switched over from the mini USB, Yay! I do not have anything negative to say so far, these really seem like a great value and offer a lot of features and performance over units priced well above these.
This is minor but I really wanted a slot for a micro SD card but I can live without that. I tried the Bluedio H+ Turbines that have the card slot and FM radio capability but the pair I got was defective did not pair with my Note 3 and were summarily sent back. Even so I would have sent them back as the wired sound quality and build quality was seriously lacking for my taste. The only other side item is that I did order some Brainwavez HM5 pads to replace the stock ones on this unit. I'm only doing this to provide for a better fit for my small head, no other reason. As I understand it, even with these larger pads the headphones will still albeit barely, fit in their lovely case. Speaking of which that case is a REALLY NICE touch and bonus. Go ahead if you are on the fence and don't be afraid to at least give these a try, while you may have never heard of MEElectronics these are actually a good quality product with excellent sound across the spectrum. I seriously could not be more pleased.
UPDATE of the Brainwavz HM5 Pleather pad installation: Wow, just wow. As stated earlier I was really looking to this mod only to help fit and was not expecting or caring too much about performance in terms of sound quality as I was already impressed in that area. Yes, these are full sized pads but they do fit perfectly and if you want true over the ear coverage then this is your answer. The sound is just amazing and these pads do help with sound leakage but will not eliminate it either. The pleather pads really enhance the bass for sure from my personal experience while I've read that the velour pads seem to be favored for comfort as they will not be as hot if the headphones are to be worn for long periods of time. Other reviewers of the mod also mention the velour will leak sound and dampen the bass a little but they still seem to be well pleased with the mod. With this mod I'd bet my MEElectronics Matrix2's sound every bit as good as Samsung Levels. The most obvious downside to the mod is that you do lose some portability. They will still fit in their case, BUT it is VERY tight and the pads have to be compressed some so you wouldn't want to store them like that for very long. I feel spending nearly $20 extra for these pads was well worth it, YMMV.
Build quality looks to be average, though I have not had any failures as of yet. It just feels like at some point I am going to break the rotating point on the band that allows you to lay the headphones flat. The button layout and construction is similar to the really cheap bluetooth headphones you would find on a site like Aliexpress or something similar, but they work.
Overall, they are pretty darned nice for the price if you can get them refurbished.
My biggest gripe is that the audio processing is delayed and the bluetooth doesn't pair reliably when they are turned on. I will often have to turn them off and on several times to get them to actually play the audio, despite my phone indicating that it is paired. Switching audio outputs on whatever app I am using has no effect, I have to manually reboot the headset before it will eventually connect.
The delay in the audio processing makes them unusable for watching videos, something that I would use them for if they worked. So they have been relegated to my work headphones, which is fine.
It also rears its head during music, in the form of tempo glitches in the songs during the first 10-15 seconds of the track. It will play at roughly 1.5x speed for a few seconds here and there during those first few seconds. Doesn't happen on every song, seems to be every 3-4 songs on average, but it is noticable and it takes you out of the song for a second or two.
Overall I am not unhappy with them, but only because I got them for roughly 60% of the listed price.
