MOXPAD X6 – Review

🎧 We have reviewed the MOXPAD X6, a fairly famous in ear monitor from the brand. MOXPAD is a brand that exclusively manufactures in-ear headphones and bluetooth earphones which should give them an advantage of expertise.

The MOXPAD X6 are earphones with translucent housings that will allow you to see the inner guts, the earpieces have a greatly thin profile and small overall size. Their form factor and design reminded us to other earphones that we have reviewed like the QKZ W1 PRO / Fonge W1 PRO, Songful S1 and in some way to the Sound Intone E6.

The cables are detachable and have a MMCX connector type, this is a great feature that can be found sometimes on much more exclusive, prime and expensive in-ear headphones. The MMCX cable is a very universally adopted type of detachable cable that has robust connections and can be easily found on most audio stores, the MMCX cable type also provides the possibility to choose between the huge amount of cable varieties available on the market or even for bluetooth MMCX cables to transform the MOXPAD X6 into a bluetooth earphone.

The cables are rounded, rubberized to help reducing tangling issues and are extremely robust. Inline there is a microphone and 1-button control that allow to play/pause music, skip songs and answer/reject calls. The stereo plug connection has a 45 degree angled designed which is a feature that some users highly appreciate.

A
Accessories & Packaging

The MOXPAD X6 come inside a relatively large packaging, inside a branded hard carrying case, 3 pair of extra eartips are included and a detachable MMCX cable; the earphones come already with a 2-flange deep fit eartips.

B
Bass/Sub Bass

With the already fitted double flange eartips the MOXPAD X6 has a very conservative bass response that we would almost define as lacking mid-bass punch, body and with no sub-bass at all with a non-bassy personality. Applying an EQ mid-bass sounds empty and sub-bass responds with a muted space. Hint: keep on reading and you will be surprised.

By placing the normal single flange eartips, bass radically changes into a very punchy and deep response, with rich and energetic mid-bass and sub-bass. With an EQ and normal eartips, there is a huge increase in punch and depth.

In our extreme bass tests, the MOXPAD X6 took 47% of a Fiio E12 Mont Blanc maximum power while using it with it’s bass boost turned on and set to high gain. With the double flange eartips there was poor amount of added punch and depth with a scarce overall empowering, setting it on the same level of an average unamped earphone’s response and no basshead impact at all. Instead, with the single flange eartips mid-bass punch and sub-bass depth got strongly nourished but still they did not become a basshead in-ear headphone like the superb Sony MDR-EX7550 / Sony MDR-EX800st or the outstanding Pioneer SE-CX8.

The final score seen in this section is the averaged score of both performances (double flange eartips and single flange eartips)

M
Mids/Vocals

The MOXPAD X6, while used with the double flange eartips, have mids with a neither cold nor warm sound, with clear enough lower mids and lower vocals that do not sound too recessed and free of any mid-bass bleed. Higher mids are clear and not harsh.

Instead, placing the standard eartips makes their mids warm, clearly more congested and with some mid-bass bleeding into lower mids.

An EQ results in harshy higher mids, no lower vocals recession and substantial reduction of mid-bass bleed (when the single flange eartips are used)

As with the bass section, the total score in this section is the weighted score taking in consideration both results with the different eartips.

H
Highs/Treble

The highs of the MOXPAD X6 are the only audio frequencies that did not present a great difference in sound by switching the eartips type.

Highs are bright but lack detail, at times they can become a tiny bit sibilant (nothing too strong) and are free of piercing peaks in general.

With an EQ, highs gain a small amount of added brightness with no improvement over detail and without feeding up the piercing highs but sibilance will get stronger.

Sound Leak

The sound leaking level of these in-ear headphones is higher than most average earphones, we would say that they are perfectly usable on normally busy city situations or during sports but could generate problems if used on places that silence is required (libraries, etc.)

SI
Sound Isolation

With the double flange eartips the sound isolation is clearly below most average earphones, you will have to bump up the volume to efficiently reduce surrounding noises, we would score them a 6.5/10.

With normal eartips their sound isolation highly improve with a great reduction of perceivable noise, their performance with normal eartips is far above an average earphone; we would give a score of 8.5/10 with normal eartips.

Again, the total scores is an average of both performances.

C
Comfort

The MOXPAD X6 have a very flat profile that results in great comfort and flush fit which makes them perfectly wearable for under the helmet usage or while resting your head on your hand. The overall light weight and small size provide them an absolutely pain-free experience.

EQ
Response to Equalization

The MOXPAD X6’s highs were able to gain some brightness but failed to add any amount of detail; mids and vocals cleared up but boxy vocals could be perceived and higher mids reached harsh peaks; bass got highly more energetic, if the single flange eartips are placed.
