Blue Mix-Fi overview

  • 1Description

The Blue Mix-Fi are powered headphones that innovate on the traditional closed-back, over-ear headphone design with the incorporation of an internal all-analog audiophile amplifier. This allows the headphones to work well with low output sources such as smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices.

The headphones can operate in passive mode without the headphone amplifier, in active mode with the amplifier, or in bass boost mode, which adds additional low-frequency energy to the signal. The addition of an integrated amplifier within the headphones allows for the use of 50mm fiber-reinforced dynamic drivers to deliver a frequency response of 15 Hz to 20 kHz, making them suitable for everything from professional music production to recreational listening.

Blue also re-worked the physical design of the headphones to solve some of the issues traditionally encountered with over-the-ear designs. Inspired by the suspensions found on Formula 1 racing cars, the headphones feature a multi-joint hinge system with height adjustment, camber angle adjustment, and an adjustable tension knob to accommodate heads of all shapes and sizes.

The size adjustments improve the quality of the acoustic seal and ultimately the audio performance of the headphones. They also feature ear-shaped ear cups intended to provide better comfort and keep the ear cups in parallel alignment to improve the imaging and maintain a consistent frequency response. The multi-hinge design also allows the headphones to fold into a more compact form factor for storage and travel.

The amplifier features a built-in rechargeable battery that can provide 12 hours of run time on a single charge. An intelligent power management system automatically detects and powers off the headphones when they are removed from your head and powers them back on when they are re-positioned on your ears. If the battery runs out, the headphones can still be used in passive mode. They come with a soft case with cable storage pocket, a 3.9' audio cable with iOS in-line remote control, a 9.8' audio cable, a 3.3' USB charging cable, an AC charging adapter, 3.5mm to 1/4" TRS adapter, and a two-prong airplane connector.

    Blue Mix-Fi reviews

    Mix-Fi Powered High-Fidelity Headphones with Built-In Amplifier is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great, interesting sound. not for mixing I am a sound engineer so I was drawn in by the idea of using this to mix and then listen on mobile devices. Unfortunately my unit came with an annoying hiss in one ear each time I switched on the amplifier. I also had some noise when plugged directly into my laptop and my laptop then plugged into the wall. This didn't happen when using a dragonfly DAC but I still had the hiss in one side. I'd read about this issue affecting some units when it was known as the mo-fi and hoped it was just early units but it's noticeable on mine. In passive mode sound is excellent for listening to music, wide stage and great bass detail. The bass boost is subtle but I can't really appreciate it with the amp hiss. I'd buy this without the amp if they sold it
