These are the first wireless headphones I ever bought. I was a bit skeptical at first, but after a few days, I wouldn't want to miss them anymore. These are the first ANC headphones designed by Beyerdynamic. A company known particularly to professional musicians and sound engineers due to the industry standards - the DT770 Pro, DT880 Pro, and DT990 Pro. The Lagoon can't quite reach the level of these legends but definitely delivers when it comes to the sound quality. Also, the app allows you to take a pretty professional hearing test and adapt the sound to your hearing. This dramatically improved my sound experience. The app also allows you to further adapt it to your needs. It is made out of hard plastics and supported by some metal. The clamping power is just about right for my head to keep them perfectly in place. Connecting it with my devices is pretty straight forward and it hasn't happened that they suddenly disconnected. The noise-canceling does its job pretty well, although I've been told that some other headphones are even better when it comes to that. The only thing I would like to see with a possible future generation of the Lagoon is more colour options.

Pros

  • Sound quality
  • Connectivity
  • Build quality
  • Weight
  • Battery power

Cons

  • Limited colour options

UNDERRATED MASTERPIECE !!

Have owned them for over an year.Here's my detailed analysis:- DESIGN & COMFORT: Minimalistic & compact design. Plastic built, earcups are leatherette. Comfortable and light, with a snug fit. CONNECTIVITY: Comes with Bluetooth 4.2. Has great connection strength and range. Can be used in wired mode with an AUX cable MULTI- DEVICE CONNECTION: Supports upto 10 devices. However, you can multi-task with 2 devices at a time. TOUCH CONTROLS: Placed on the Right Earcup, they're quite intuitive and easy to use. Their sensitivity can be adjusted as well. Pretty accurate and I haven't faced any accidental touches so far. Helps control music playback, volume and calls. VOICE PROMPTS: You are greeted with voice prompts when you Turn ON/OFF your headphones. Briefs you with 4 details - Battery status, ANC status, ANC level and bluetooth codec. LIGHT GUIDE SYSTEM (LGS): Seems like a gimmick at first,but is really handy. Just by looking at the lights, you can know their status. SOUND: The main USP of the Lagoon is Sound Quality. Clear, detailed and fun to listen to. No matter how many times you might have heard your favorite track, listening to it on these would make you notice so many beats you never noticed before. It'll give you the same excitement that you had when you listened to that song for the first time.You can literally hear when the singer opens his mouth or takes a breath. It's so detailed. These have a Balanced Sound, neither flat nor bright. The sound is energetic with a punchy bass. At the same time, the bass doesn't overpower the mids. The Mids are very well detailed. If you are a bass head, you can switch to "Bass Boost" in the presets, and it's going to give you a resonating bass. The soundstage is wide and it was such an immersive experience listening to Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Queen, Barbara Lynn. Excellent sound imaging and audio direction. I'd say, Audiophile-grade performance! ANC: 2 levels of ANC with decent noise isolation. MOBILE APP: Simple with a sound personalization feature. BATTERY: Insane battery life. 24 hours with ANC and approx 48 hours without ANC. CARRY CASE: Compact hard-shell carry case. Perfect for travel. WARRANTY & SUPPORT: 2 Years with all spare parts available VERDICT: I'm really surprised as to why these LAGOONs aren't a popular choice. These are Absolutely Fantastic in almost all aspects. I believe they should be considered amongst the Best Sounding ANC headphones in the market, atm.

Pros

  • Superb Sound Quality
  • Insane Battery Life
  • Touch Controls
  • Decent ANC

Cons

  • Plastic Built.
  • Otherwise None

Design

1.weight

283g

335g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.has a detachable cable
Beyerdynamic Lagoon ANC
Bowers & Wilkins PX
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.Ingress Protection (IP) rating

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Beyerdynamic Lagoon ANC)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Bowers & Wilkins PX)

The first number of the IP rating refers to protection against dust, while the second number refers to protection against liquid. E.g. a first number of 6 denotes that it is completely dustproof, and a second number of 7 denotes that the device can withstand full immersion in water.
4.can be folded
Beyerdynamic Lagoon ANC
Bowers & Wilkins PX
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
5.has a tangle free cable
Beyerdynamic Lagoon ANC
Bowers & Wilkins PX
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
6.travel bag is included
Beyerdynamic Lagoon ANC
Bowers & Wilkins PX
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
7.has an open-back design
Beyerdynamic Lagoon ANC
Bowers & Wilkins PX
The device is designed in a way that allows sound to go out through the back of the ear cups, which usually have vents or perforations. This design provides very natural and accurate sound.
8.is dustproof and water-resistant
Beyerdynamic Lagoon ANC
Bowers & Wilkins PX
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
9.sweat resistance

Bowers & Wilkins PX
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.

Sound quality

1.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
Beyerdynamic Lagoon ANC
Bowers & Wilkins PX
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.highest frequency

30000Hz

20000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
5.impedance

20 Ohms

22 Ohms

Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
6.sound pressure level

107dB/mW

111dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
7.has a neodymium magnet
Beyerdynamic Lagoon ANC
Bowers & Wilkins PX
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
8.has passive noise reduction
Beyerdynamic Lagoon ANC
Bowers & Wilkins PX
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.

Power
