The Baseus Bowie MA10 earbuds are a budget-friendly, stemless, closed-back design with fairly good comfort and very good microphone and build quality. They're wireless with a dynamic driver, support AAC codec, and have low latency, which makes them suitable for exercises and day-to-day activities but they may not be the best option for gaming or TV due to sound quality considerations. The earbuds are sweatproof and have active noise cancelling, weighing 10 grams, and come with silicone fins for a secure fit. They offer an 8-hour battery life with a case providing additional 132 hours. While they lack a lossless codec, they are equipped with an app equalizer and customization controls. The earbuds are suitable for both Android and Apple users, and although they don't have ear detection, they do come with a charging case that does not support wireless charging and takes 3 hours to charge.

Ratings by Category

Battery Life:
5.0
The Battery Life rating is based on hours of typical, actual usage.
Exercise:
4.6
This score evaluates the product when used for exercise and physical activity. It mainly takes into account comfort, whether or not the products are sweatproof and how secure are the earbuds or headphones while wearing them. We also consider products with wireless capabilities to be more suitable for this particular scenario
Air Travel:
4.5
This score evaluates the product for use on airplanes and other similar kinds of travel. It takes into account noise reduction and portability, including case shape, case size, and weight. It also incorporates the battery life of the product, long-haul comfort, noise reduction (both active and passive), and sound quality. We generally consider wireless products to be more suitable for air travel.
Portability:
4.1
The Portability score is based on an overall assessment that includes volume and maximum dimension of the product (and case, if relevant), and its weight. Special features like foldability for headphones are also taken into account.
TV & Video:
3.0
This score evaluates the earbuds or headphones when used to watch videos, movies and TV. In the case of wireless products, it takes into account latency - the perceived delay between the action on screen and the sounds playing in your ears. The score also considers soundstage quality, whether they have a virtual surround feature, and overall comfort. It’s important to note that the device paired with the earbuds heavily influences their performance in regards to latency or delay.

Digital Trends

Simon Cohen | August 2023
"Even if the Bowie MA10 only had some of the features and performance they offer at double the price, they’d be a helluva good value. But given that they far exceed any other earbuds at this price, if you’re looking for an ultra-affordable set of wireless earbuds and you don’t mind their big charging case, you just can’t go wrong."
