Mpow Bluetooth 4.1 Receiver Review – Great Design, Not so Much About the Sound



As its name says, the Mpow Bluetooth 4.1 Receiver makes use of Bluetooth 4.1 technology to make use of a full-speed transmission while maintaining a low power output. Aside from the typical Bluetooth receivers for audio, this particular model makes for a unique design. It has circular white lights that light up whenever users touch the “Touch Area” of the receiver. It has a very easy one-touch operation, which means that you can make use of it without having to go through a lot of trouble. While ease-of-use is definitely one of this receiver’s strongest points, as with its compact size, the sound coming off of it leaves many to be desired.

The Mpow Bluetooth 4.1 Receiver is Compact in Size, and Perhaps With the Sound Quality as Well

The Mpow Bluetooth 4.1 Receiver weighs a measly 4-ounces, and its dimensions bring forth measurements of 3.7 x 3.7 x 1-inches. With its compact dimensions and incredibly lightweight architecture, you won’t have any problem bringing it along with you no matter where you go. You can bring it along different rooms inside your home, or you can even bring it along your office. This is a good option for those who want to make use of their wireless headphones without the hassle of the cords of wired units being messed up.

The standard packaging comes with an equally tiny male-to-male 3.5-millimeter adapter, and it is exactly what you might need whenever you would connect the device to headphones. It also comes with the one-touch button that will allow you to pause or restart music.

While the size and design of the Mpow Receiver makes it a solid choice, turn it on and you might have to rethink your decisions on making the purchase, especially when you are an audiophile. This is because the audio coming out of it is muddy. The bass is unclear, and at times terribly overpowered. Turn up the volume of your tracks and the sound distorts horribly, especially with those punchy kicks. The traditional FM radio inside your car might even sound better than what this device is able to deliver in terms of audio.

Simply put, if you’re not too concerned about the sound and would just want a receiver that is very compact and portable, then the Mpow Bluetooth 4.1 Receiver might be a solid option. However, if you care about how your favorite music sounds like, then it is highly suggested that you try out other receivers instead.
