The Noontec Hammo Go Noise Cancelling are lightweight, fashionable headphones that offer decent audio reproduction that lacks a little bass. Unfortunately, their poor noise isolation cannot be recommended for use in loud environments or on busy commutes and their build quality is a little plasticky and cheap.
The Noontec 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.
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. However, 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 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.
The Noontec Hammo Go deliver decent comfort thanks to their soft, well-padded ear cups. They are relatively lightweight and the headband does not apply too much pressure on the head. However, the headband is not that flexible and is not as well padded as the ear cups.
Button layout and functionality is simple but lacking. There is 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 somthing. 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 will 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 are still bigger than most on-ear headphones, and although they would easily fit in a backpack, they are too cumbersome and large for a pocket.
These headphones come with a great-looking, hardshell case that will protect them well 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.
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.
Comes 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 earcups is sub-par, due to the bad fit and seal of the headphones. The active noise cancellation is disappointing too, 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, at loud volumes, leakage is quite broad, ranging from 400Hz to 7KHz. Most of the audio you are listening to will be audible a few feet away.
The Hammo Go 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 also do not 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.
