August EP750 – Active Noise Cancelling Headphones Review

The August EP750 bucks the trend a little with August headphones, opting for a higher than normal price point in order to offer active sound cancelling technology.

In the box you get the EP750 headphones, USB charging cable, standard aux cable, aux cable with inline controls, an aux cable adaptor and a nice carry case.

August EP750 with accessories

The headphones fold down and they, along with all the accessories, fit into the case making them easy to travel with, or store away when not in use.

As with other August products, the EP750s are nice looking set with simple set of controls for power, volume on one side with a noise cancellation on/off switch on the other.

They adopt a rectangular design that will sit over your ears (or on if you have large ears!) and they’re generally comfortable to wear, although it’s fair to say they’re not the most comfortable headphones reviewed, they clamp on tighter than other headphones but of course this has the benefit of ensure there is no chance they’ll fall off!

The August EP750 pair to your device via Bluetooth, either via the traditional search/pair method or via NFC.  You only need to do this once, they auto connect when powered on.

They also feature an aux in port so you can use these without using Bluetooth, handy if you run out of power or are in a situation where Bluetooth can’t be used.

Sound quality, as you’d expect from the company that made the amazing value EP650s, is really good.  They produce a clean sound with a good, but not overwhelming, bass.

The over ear design does a great job of blocking out a lot of external noise, as you’ll see in the review video below these were worn during a spot of gardening and the music was very clear even with the strimmer buzzing away.

If you’re in a noisier environment (e.g. using the louder lawn mower in the review video) you can easily activate the noise cancellation feature via the flick of a switch.  Active noise cancelling doesn’t completely eliminate noise, a good thing if you’re walking around and need to be alerted to horns, sirens etc, but it does take the edge off.

This operates independently of Bluetooth and can therefore be used if connecting via an aux cable.

If you’re looking for a good sounding set of headphones with active noise cancellation the August EP750 tick the boxes, if noise cancellation isn’t important or you’re after a really comfortable set of cans the August EP650 are still a fantastic set for the money.
