The TaoTronics Active Noise Cancelling Headphones TT-EP01 unboxing results in 4 pair of eartips, 4 pair of earhooks, 1x micro USB charging cable and 1x airline adapter.
Everything is packed inside a small square box with foam that protects well the unit.
Bass & Sub Bass
The TaoTronics Active Noise Cancelling Headphones TT-EP01 bass is energetic with punchy mid-bass and fairly deep sub-bass. Do not expect a basshead earphone but neither a shallow and thin sounding one.
Nearly every music genre’s bass requirements will be fulfilled by the lower frequencies of the TaoTronics TT-EP01.
Applying an EQ, there is a noticeable empowering of their sub-bass and some additional mid-bass punch.

Mids & Vocals
The TaoTronics Active Noise Cancelling Headphones TT-EP01 mids are warm but not too congested, with medium/low mid-bass bleed. Lower vocals sound alive and present while higher mids are crisp and clear but not harsh.
With an EQ there is a slight improvement with no radical modification of their personality.
Highs & Treble
The TaoTronics Active Noise Cancelling Headphones TT-EP01 highs offer sufficient brightness and little to no detail but have a firmly dark tint.
Their rolled-off highs give them very low chances of piercing highs but some sibilance can arise from time to time.
An EQ gives an important addition of detail and some opening up of their sound.
The sound leaking out of the TaoTronics TT-EP01 is fairly low when listening to music at a moderate volume and will blend in in noisy city situations. Expect something fairly less leaking than most average earphones.

The sound isolation provided by the TaoTronics Active Noise Cancelling Headphones TT-EP01 is very noticeable (while not activating it’s ANC function).
Once their ANC function is turned on, the TaoTronics TT-EP01 noise isolation + noise cancellation provides a very strong reduction of surrounding noises.
We measured the noise cancellation of the TaoTronics TT-EP01 and it resulted in a maximum of 25dB and averaged from 15dB to 20dB, which is a very efficient active noise cancellation level.

Response to Equalization
The response to EQ of the TaoTronic TT-EP01 was probably one of the least efficient performer of the overall tests. Mids did not show a strong improvement but bass and highs did become punchier, deeper and brighter.
