Altec Lansing MuzX Ultra MZX 606 headphones review

Our site has already had reviews of the dynamic models of the MuzX line, and by chance, the test turned out to be the MuzX Ultra 606 - the “reinforcing” model Peugeot with one matching radiator. I had no illusions about this model, so I was in no hurry with the review, to put it mildly.

Nevertheless, I am regularly asked to give my opinion on these headphones, and in short - in the event that you do not need a remote for the iPhone, but you really want to "armature", take the Sony XBA-1, and if you need a remote control, pay attention to the dynamic MuzX Extra MZX 406. If you are interested in the details, read the review further.

Abroad, MuzX Ultra 606 costs from 25 to 50 dollars, in Russia 2,500-2,800 rubles.

Packaging and accessories

The box is neat and pretty enough, but there are no frills. Inside - the headphones themselves and a rather big set of nozzles - there are one- and two-lobe silicone nozzles, but there is no “foam”. There is a carrying case, the same as Monster Cable or Beats - with a spring. There are also instructions and warranty information.

From the point of view of sound insulation - everything is fine, after all, "fittings", you can ride the subway. But I would like better nozzles - however, this is true for the rest of the Alteks. With landing, everything is fine, adjusted for nozzles. Headphones can be worn with the wire down and the wire up.

In general - a mixed impression, there is a feeling of some kind of underdevelopment, as if they saved money everywhere. But there are also positive aspects.

Headphones tested with Hifiman HM-801 players (with Game Card amplifier) ​​and iBasso DX100. The Prime Test CD1 was used.

In terms of sound, there is nothing special here. It can be noted that the bass is good for a single-driver “reinforcement”, there is not much of it, it is lightweight, but it is there, and it is quite detailed. The mids are slightly noisy, and there are few high frequencies, although the sound cannot be called muffled. Rather, the middle adds dirt to the sound. Detail and attack are far from “reinforcing”, only some things of the MZX 606 work out better than that 406 model (fortunately, it is at hand and can be compared).

What is really good is the stereo panorama, it is wide and with a claim to volume.

In general, the sound is dry, typically "reinforcing", not very rich in detail, with a narrowed dynamic range.

Compatibility

With the Apple iPhone 4s, the sound quality remains the same as with more expensive players. Thus, headphones should be used with something simpler, no overpayment for the source is required.

Competitors

Oddly enough, the main competitor of the MZX606 is the "dynamic" model MZX406. Yes, the “reinforcement” has a sharper bass - but it is also less. The only serious plus of the 606th model is noise isolation. It's a pity, but you can't really find 406s in Russia.

But what you can find is the Sony XBA-1, for its 1.5 thousand (and there are cheaper ones) - an excellent model, it's a pity that it doesn't have a remote control for the iPhone.

There are also interesting models among dynamic headphones from other manufacturers, for example, Shure SE215 - if desired, you can “screw” a cable with a remote control to it.

Output

Thus, the only reasonable option is to purchase the MZX606 from abroad. They cost their 50 dollars, but 80-100 (in Russia) are no longer there.

And yes, beware of the cable - changing it just won't work, and, as practice has shown, there are problems with reliability.

Headphones are made in China.

Appearance and usability

Headphones are made in the style of younger models, the material is plastic, the assembly is excellent. Of the design decisions, the loops on the ends of the headphones cause some kind of shock, there is exactly one use for them - you can “enlarge” the loop and connect the headphones together. Well, you can also pull the “plugs” out of your ears by the loops. In terms of durability, I don't think a protruding plastic bracket is the best solution.

I also have mixed feelings about the cable. Firstly, exactly the same cables (despite external reliability) in younger models quickly enough (in six months or a year) fail. Secondly, in the cold it becomes dubious - it’s painfully “condo” insulation. Plus - there is a "microphone" effect, the sound from the friction of the cable on the clothes is transmitted to the headphones. But the wire looks, of course, cool - matte insulation, braided cable - everything is as it should be. The plug is straight, rather miniature. Remote control - similar to model 406, convenient buttons, good microphone.
