The Mpow Flame Pro are a fantastic pair of completely wireless sports headphones. Their supportive ear-hook design guarantees a secure fit that keeps these headphones snug in your ears no matter how hard your workout is. Their nearly 12-hour single-charge battery life can comfortably last a full day, and when you factor in their charging case, you get nearly 50 hours. Their bass-heavy sound profile may not be ideal for all genres, but it will keep you pumped up at the gym when listening to dubstep or hip-hop. Unfortunately, they don’t do a good job of filtering out background noise, so they may not be the best choice for your everyday commute or for helping you stay focused at work.
The Mpow Flame Pro and the Beats Powerbeats Pro Truly Wireless have the same style aesthetic. The headphones are absolutely coated in a matte black plastic that is easily smudged. They have a straightforward appearance and could easily be mistaken for Beats headphones if it weren’t for the tiny “Mpow” branding on the side.

The Mpow Flame Pro are lightweight in-ears that most people should be able to wear for extended periods of time without discomfort. They’re a little bulkier than the Beats Powerbeats Pro Genuinely Wireless, and their ear hooks are a little tighter, potentially pinching people’s ears. However, even in a side-by-side comparison, this isn’t particularly noticeable.
Overall, the control scheme is nice. Since each earbud has two buttons, the controls are very intuitive and simple to use. Their physical, clicky buttons provide excellent feedback as well.
These headphones are a little bulkier than most fully wireless in-ears due to their ear hook shape, but they’re still very lightweight overall. They fit comfortably into any bag or purse, though some pockets might be a little too large for them.
If you get the right fit, these headphones are very stable. They shouldn’t move at all, thanks to their ear-hooks, except during hard workouts or heavy head movements.
These headphones have a low noise isolation efficiency. Even with a good fit and seal from the given ear tips, they won’t help much with background chatter and won’t block out the low rumble of engine sounds. On the positive side, they do a good job of blocking out higher-end frequencies, such as those created by an air conditioner.

The Mpow Flame Pro’s battery life is satisfactory. Their single-charge battery life of almost 12 hours is outstanding for a pair of truly wireless headphones, also beating out the Beats Powerbeats Pro Truly Wireless by around 30 minutes. The Mpow Flame Pro can also be fully charged in under an hour, enabling you to easily recharge their battery. Their case can carry three additional loads, giving them a total battery life of nearly 50 hours, which is impressive. Unfortunately, they lack any power-saving features, so you’ll have to remember to store the headphones in their case to avoid unintentionally draining their battery.
Bluetooth 5.0 is used by the Mpow Flame Pro, but it does not allow multi-device or NFC pairing. Their PC latency is high, but it’ll probably be low enough on Android and iOS that you won’t find much delay when watching videos.
Verdict & Ratings
The Mpow Flame Pro are mediocre headphones for a variety of uses. They don’t do a good job of filtering out background noise, and their bass-heavy, dark sound profile makes them unsuitable for a wide variety of genres. On the plus side, they have a 12-hour battery life, which is remarkable for a pair of completely wireless headphones. They’re also very relaxed and stable in the ear, making them an excellent choice for the gym.
