Choose the JLab Go Work Wireless if you need a reliable microphone for calls and meetings, as they have a boom mic that generally delivers clearer speech. Also, if you value long battery life and plan to use your headphones for extended periods, the JLab's offer significantly more endurance. On the other hand, Moondrop Nekocake is more suitable for a casual listener who prioritizes a lightweight and portable design, with better suitability for use with Android devices due to AAC codec compatibility. JLab's will suit work environments better due to their design and mic, while Moondrop's are more for everyday, on-the-go use. Give Feedback

Headphone Check

Maike Paeßens | 2021
"If you are going to criticise the JLab Go Work, it would be for the cables, which are to some extent too short for their intended use, and for its rather harsh treble reproduction above moderate volume levels in music mode. However, the call quality during telephone calls and video conferences in voice mode via wireless and via cable is impeccable. This handy Bluetooth headset also scores points with its excellent battery life and support for multipoint connections."

Jarvin | January 2022
"What sets the Nekocake apart from its competition at this price point is the Moondrop Link app that allows the user to change the tonal balance of the Nekocake. This makes sure that it’s versatile enough to suit different sonic preferences while allowing some customization of controls."
