The Noontec Hammo Go are lightweight, fashionable noise cancelling headphones that offer decent audio reproduction, but lack a little low-bass. Unfortunately, their poor noise isolation isn't ideal for use in loud environments or on busy commutes and their build quality is a little plasticky and cheap.
The Noontec Hammo Go are mediocre-at-best everyday headphones. They sound decent but leak a little too much for office use and don't isolate enough for loud environments.
The Noontec Hammo Go are average for critical listening. They have a decent audio reproduction but have a limited soundstage due to their closed-back design.
The Noontec Hammo Go are below-average for commuting. They're moderately comfortable, and lightweight but their noise isolation is too weak for loud, noisy commutes or noisy flights.
The Noontec Hammo Go are mediocre for sports use. They're moderately comfortable, and they're not too bulky. However, they're slightly too unstable for strenuous exercise.
The Noontec Hammo Go are sub-par for office use. They leak a lot and don't block much ambient noise. You can hear the rest of the office, and your coworkers can likely hear your audio.
The Noontec Hammo Go are average for Home Theater use. They have a decent sound for listening to music and watching movies. They also have no latency since they're wired. They have a short audio cable, so unless you have an extension cord they won't be ideal for comfortably watching movies from your couch.
The Noontec Hammo Go are a stylish pair of headphones. They have a unique two-tone red and black design that is visually pleasing. The back of the ear cups are branded with a red logo on a silver metal finish, which matches the red underside of the headband and the silver of the metal frame.
These headphones are fairly comfortable thanks to their soft, well-padded ear cups. They're relatively lightweight, and the headband doesn't apply too much pressure on the head. However, the headband isn't that flexible and isn't as well padded as the ear cups.
The button layout and functionality are simple but lacking. There's only one noise cancelling switch on the ear cup. The only other control option is a call/music button on the cable's inline control. The lack of a dedicated volume control option is a little disappointing.
These headphones are moderately stable. They can maintain a stable fit during casual listening sessions and have a cable that detaches if it gets hooked on to something. However, they're not tight on your head, which is good for comfort but reduces their ability to stay in place during sports, running, and jumping. They're not designed for high-intensity physical activity and can slip off your ears under those conditions.
The Noontec Hammo Go are smaller than average over-ear headphones. They also fold up into a more compact design which makes them moderately portable. Unfortunately, they're still bigger than most on-ears, and although they would easily fit in a backpack, they're too cumbersome and large for a pocket.
These headphones come with a great-looking, hardshell case that can help protect them against scratches, hard falls, and even water damage. However, it does add a little bit of bulk to the headphones, which will take up a moderate amount of space in a backpack.
Their build quality is average at best. The plastic design feels relatively sturdy, and the headband has a metal frame for reinforcement. However, the headband is thin and inflexible, making it susceptible to breaking under physical stress.
These headphones come with two cables: 1/8" TRRS-TRRS with call/music but no volume control and 1/8" TRS-TRS with no in-line controls.
Poor isolation performance. The passive cancellation provided by the ear cups is sub-par, due to the bad fit and seal. The active noise cancellation is disappointing, providing a maximum of -8dB of isolation at 200Hz and nothing much below or above it.
Decent leakage performance. If you listen quietly in a loud environment, you shouldn't worry about leakage. However, leakage is quite broad at loud volumes, ranging from 400Hz to 7kHz. Most of the audio you're listening to will be audible a few feet away.
These headphones use two AAA batteries, but only provide 29 hrs of battery life. While this is more than average, using two batteries that have to be changed only after 29 hours can be a bit bothersome. Unfortunately, they don't have any battery-saving features like an auto-off timer, and the audio severely deteriorates as the battery discharges. On the upside, they can continue playing audio passively once the batteries are dead, which makes them a decent option for long flights or road trips.
