SENS MJ2: Design and Build
The SENS MJ2 Bluetooth earphones come with a silicon-style neckband with a very soft feel to them. The neckband has a very smooth finish and doesn’t feel uncomfortable on your skin while wearing it.
The remote control part is made of glossy plastic which feels premium as well. There are three multifunctional buttons on the remote control module and it also includes the USB Type-C port for charging.
The wires connecting to the buds are good but nylon braided wires would have been better and given it the strength it needs. The buds on the other hand are built well- they have half polycarbonate and half metal casing with angled tips.
Furthermore, the buds have the SENS logo on the back, followed by rubber wings to make the buds more secure in the ears. Eartips are pretty soft and create a snug fit into the ears to create better insulation from the outside noise.
The buds magnetically clip together which keeps the buds managed and it turns off the earphones. The overall weight of the earphones is 34 grams and you won’t even feel that weight on your neck.
The SENS MJ2 Bluetooth earphones come with an IPX4 rating so you can use them around water. Overall the build quality is perfect without a doubt and I loved everything about these earphones.
SENS MJ2: Features and Connectivity
The SENS MJ2 Bluetooth earphones come with all the basic features and it brings some new tech to the table. It comes with Bluetooth 5.0 and still, it has all the features of modern earphones that come in the latest earphones with higher Bluetooth versions.
You get an instant connection feature called Intelligent Insta Connect(IIC) which enables the earphones to instantly connects to the paired devices. You also get a feature that lets you connect to two devices simultaneously which is really cool.
Plus, there’s a low latency mode that reduces the latency between the device to the earphones, intended for gaming. SENS calls it Smart Voice Video Connect (SVVC) but the brand didn’t mention the numbers. I tried each of these features mentioned here and I can confirm that these worked as intended.
SENS MJ 2: Sound Quality
The MJ2 Bluetooth earphones come with 12mm drivers but to be honest, the sound output is not very loud. Anyways, the highs and mids of the audio sound perfect and there’s no cluttering even at maximum volume. The lows are also good but not that great, if you like bass-heavy songs then you may not like these pair of earphones.
Another thing that I didn’t like about these earphones is that the sound is not wide enough even if you are watching a movie that supports Dolby. I’d have preferred a wider audio range.
The call quality is very good, it comes with one microphone which means no noise cancellation but still, it worked great. Overall, the sound quality is crisp and clear but the bass feels lacking all the time.
SENS MJ2: Battery and Charging
The SENS MJ2 neckband comes equipped with a 180 mAh battery and a USB-C port on the side for charging. It has a rubber cap on the port to keep the dust and water out of the port. You get a small Type-A to Type-C cable and you can charge it off your smartphone’s charger.
It comes with an As Fast AS Possible (AFAP) feature that can give you 8 hours of playtime with just 10 minutes of charge. The brand claims a 24-hour playback time with one change and I can confirm this from my usage.
