Accessories & Packaging

The BlitzWolf BW-ANC1 unboxing results in 2 pair of eartips (plus a third pair already placed on the earpieces), a cable tightener, a USB cable and a hard carrying case. Everything comes inside the exact same packaging as the BlitzWolf BW-BTS1, which is a small, rectangular box.

B

Bass & Sub Bass

The BlitzWolf BW-ANC1 offer a fun, punchy and deep bass response that is well-balanced between mid-bass and sub-bass. The BW-ANC1 are tuned to fulfill any genre’s bass requisites but are not too boosted nor become boomy. Considering their punchy and deep profile, their bass is remarkably controlled and not too invasive.

Applying an EQ, very strong extra punch added and insane deepening of the sub-bass.

M

Mids & Vocals

The BlitzWolf BW-ANC1 have warm mids with full-bodied vocals and present male vocals that do not sound distant nor laid-back, some mid-bass bleed can be perceived but does not congest excessively their mids. Higher mids are crisp and clear but not forward, at the same time they do not become harsh.

The BW-ANC1 present a phenomenal response to EQ, with impressive clearing of vocals, reduction of mid-bass bleed and with crispier but not harsh higher mids.

H

Highs & Treble

The BlitzWolf BW-ANC1 highs are bright and resolve a good amount of detail. Like their mids, their highs are not recessed but neither forward, providing smooth non-fatiguing sound yet bright and not muffled. Piercing highs are not an issue with them but sibilance can show up with very sibilant peaks.

An EQ gives them an outstanding brightening and opening-up of their sound but with the con of piercing highs introduction and stronger sibilance.

SI

Sound Isolation

Passive noise isolation is fairly stronger than most average earphones, with their Active Noise Cancelling off. Activating their ANC, the amount of isolation and noise reduction becomes immensely more efficient.

We measured a maximum noise cancellation of 24.3 dB, which averaged mostly at 20.5dB, followed by an averaged 15dB reduction fairly extended up to +/- 1kHz. Some Active Noise Cancelling systems take some time to activate, the Blitzwolf BW-ANC1 can switch their ANC on or off immediately by pressing the dedicated button (a white LED will confirm that ANC is on). Their ANC is very efficient and provide a greatly noticeable degree of reduction.

Many times Active Noise Cancelling headphones show a noticeable sound quality variation when they are used with their ANC function turned on versus when it is off. The BlitzWolf BW-ANC1 does not suffer from this phenomenon (at all), their sound quality remains exactly the same whether being used with ANC on or with it turned off.

To activate their ANC you need to turn on their Bluetooth.

C

Comfort

With their angled nozzles and housings design very similar to many Xiaomi headphones and 1MORE headphones, the BlitzWolf BW-ANC1 offers a very comfortable experience that allows them to be worn for hours without distress.

The innovative Bluetooth / ANC module design and wearing style could be a positive aspect to whom is used to clip earphone’s cables to their shirts/jackets. Another aspect that adds to their practical use is their clicky buttons that ensure a confident feedback when pressed.
