QCY M1 Pro
| Bluetooth | 10mm Driver | IPX4 |
🎧 We are reviewing the QCY M1 Pro, a waterproof Bluetooth headphone for sports and everyday use.
The housings of the QCY M1 Pro are built in plastic and metal, with the outer plate being made of metal. This section has a magnet that not only allows the earpieces to be attached to each other while not being used, it also functions as the power on/off and pairing switch. To power the unit on you simply need to separate the earpieces from each other, if you have previously paired them with your device they will automatically connect, if not they will set into pairing mode – to power the QCY M1 Pro you have to attach their magnetic backs to each other again.
The cable is rounded and rubberized and can be adjusted with the cable tightener provided in the package. Inline there is a 3-button remote/mic module with dedicated volume buttons.
The QCY M1 Pro is compatible with Android and Apple devices.

Bass & Sub Bass
Bass of the QCY T1 Pro is energetic with punchy mid-bass and sufficiently deep sub-bass. Their tuning is inclined towards fun listening sessions where alive bass is requested.
Applying an EQ, there is a very pronounced increment of both mid-bass and sub-bass. Now offering a very punchy and deep sound.

Mids & Vocals
The QCY M1 Pro mids are very warm with noticeable mid-bass bleed and gentle vocals. Male vocals show some congestion but are not excessively laid back and higher mids offer some crispness.
Their overall style is tender and free of harshness.
Using an EQ for the mids of the QCY M1 Pro vocals remove much of their congested style and sound more alive. Higher mids improve crispness and get a bit more forward, still not harsh.
Highs & Treble
The overall highs of the QCY M1 Pro offer some brightness but with a darkish style and resolve very little detail. This somewhat recessed tuning grants fatigue-free sound that treble sensitive people might welcome.
With an EQ, detail starts to be resolved and, in general, their highs sound more spacious and brighter.
The sound leaking out of the QCY M1 Pro is inline with many normal earphones, they will be hearable at less noisy situations and while listening to music at a volume settings above moderate-high.

The sound isolation provided by the QCY M1 Pro is above most average earphones by a significant amount. Nearby noises will get substantially subdued even at a moderate-low music listening volume.
