Noise-cancelling headphones often have poor sound quality and worse interaction. The appearance of the Clearer Flow wireless noise-cancelling headphones has changed me a bit.
At present, noise reduction headphones are mixed, and the price ranges from one hundred yuan to ten thousand yuan. Generally, noise reduction headphones, especially Bluetooth wireless noise reduction headphones, are often not related to good sound quality. Most of them do not support LDAC and aptX HD. High-quality transmission coding, no Japanese Hi-Res audio certification (extreme music quality and original sound reproduction), and strong noise reduction & good sound quality headphones are basically not less than $ 150.
How to choose Bluetooth noise canceling headphones? The evaluation is summarized as follows
Strong noise reduction effect
2. Comfortable to wear
3. Long battery life
4. Excellent sound quality
5. Easy interaction

Speaking of Cleer, many people (including Messi) may not know it well. Cleer is an American brand born in New York in 2012. Its CLEER DU dual-drive Bluetooth headset won the ISE 2016 TNT Award. In 2016, it entered China through JD crowdfunding. It is currently operated by Onkyo, a well-known speaker manufacturer. Onkyo ’s status as a loudspeaker is self-evident. Choosing Cleer as its recommended brand naturally has its own advantages, so Messi will take a look at the flagship product, Cleer Flow.
Appearance & workmanship
Cleer Flow, as its latest flagship noise reduction product, has a simple and prominent appearance on the packaging.
Cleer Flow has Hi-Res audio certification, supports LDAC and aptX HD high-quality transmission encoding, has a 20-hour battery life, and also supports NFC second pairing.
The Cleer Flow package is very exquisite. It comes with a leather headset case and a lanyard for easy storage.
The headset can be folded at a large angle, and it supports NFC and touch operation from the stickers on the sides of the ear cup.
Comes with aircraft conversion plug, micro usb charging cable, 3.5mm headphone cable, which can be used in a variety of scenarios.
From the overall appearance and workmanship, Clearer Flow belongs to the front line and there is no problem.
Touch operation is especially important for Bluetooth headsets. Cleer Flow, like Sony, can achieve fast operation with blind operation.
The outermost metal decorative ring can be replaced.
Headphone key layout: 3.5mm hole, on-off key, NC key (noise reduction key), AMBENT (external ambient sound amplification / external vocal amplification) switch button, especially AMBENT avoids the embarrassment of each time you take off the headset conversation.
The comfort of the cephalic cortex is good.
The earmuff cotton has memory function, which can basically realize all-inclusive headphones.
As for the glasses, Cleer Flow is worn without pressure, fully adaptable, and good overall wrapping. It may be a little tight during initial wear, with a slight chuck feel, and there is no obvious stuffy feeling after 1 hour of wearing.
There are left and right touch controls on the left and right sides of the headset, NFC + fast control, and more gameplay.
Headphone blind operation: Swipe left or right to switch songs, the sensitivity is good, and there is almost no misoperation.
Blind headset operation: slide up and down to adjust the volume.
NFC + Bluetooth connection: The speed is fast, and the Bluetooth connection can also display the power level, which is very intuitive.
1. Noise reduction
Analysis: The first ten seconds are the ambient sound effect when the noise reduction is not turned on (the earmuffs have a thicker package than all of them already have some noise reduction). After the noise reduction is turned on, the ambient sound can be basically shielded (the matching between the earmuff and the head recording microphone) In general, so a certain amount of noise reduction effect is sacrificed, the actual noise reduction effect is pretty good), press the AMBIENT button in the last few seconds, you can hear the ambient sound clearly without taking off the headphones, this design is very interesting.
2. Sound quality:
Since it is mainly Bluetooth wireless, Messi only makes subjective sharing from this point.
Device: Sony XperiaXZ2Premium
Status: NC (noise reduction on), LDAC (sound quality priority)
Music Source: Lossless
Subjective evaluation: low frequency, intermediate frequency, high frequency
Relatively low bass
The treble is not bad
Messi non-professionals, personally feel that the overall is very clean, the sound is not vague, the bass is not felt, girls and classical are good, it feels suitable for listening to pop, not very suitable for listening to bass, it is very metaphysical, so to speak of this headset The sound quality is not bad, but it can’t be compared with wired headphones at the same price.
to sum up:
Cleer Flow is a flagship noise-cancelling headset with good noise-reduction performance and innovative touch control. The overall workmanship is in line with the positioning, which is suitable for friends who just need noise-reduction commuting.
