Noontec Hammo Go Review

Noontec Hammo Go Review

For a few years now Noontec have been creating a decent reputation for themselves in the fashion headphone marketplace. This is of course primarily down to the fact they offer impressive audio quality at a competitive price. Today we take a look at their latest high end noise cancelling headphones in our Noontec Hammo Go Review.

Noontec Hammo Go Review – Packaging and Bundle

Noontec package the Hammo Go in a nice minimalist box which gives us a clear view of the headphones as well as listing some key features. Inside we find a decent quality hard case with clip which allows us to attach the Hammo Go to our bag when traveling.


Upon opening the hard case we find some product documentation, a couple of batteries and two cables. One which is designed for smartphone use and includes a mic along with button which will mute calls, or start/pause music playback and another cable which is designed for listening only.

Noontec Hammo Go Review – The Headphones

The Hammo Go is an over the ear headset from Noontec and features a closed back design.It weighs 270g and measures 195x185x74mm. As is often the case these headphones extend by around an inch on either side and the headband features a decent amount of foam padding. The majority of the construction is plastic though there are a few metal sections here and there. It is also worth noting that the headphones fold into a more compact shape for transport/storage and that multiple colours are available, such as white, black, blue and yellow.

Looking at the outside of the earcups we see that the outside of the left is removable to allow installation of the two AAA batteries. Over on the right the panel design is mirrored however we also get a small switch which turns the active noise cancellation on and off. The headset still functions when this switch is set to off, meaning we can use it even if our battery runs out. On the inside of the cups we find a protein cotton finish on the foam and inside the ear space a fabric cover over the 50mm drivers. The headset has a frequency response of 5-30Khz with sensitivity at 1Khz/1mW of 108dB. Input impedance is 32Ohm and the max power is 100mW.

Finally, these headphones use the latest revision of Noontecs Votrik speaker, the HD500. Noontec have spent a couple of years refining the HD design based on feedback from the original model. It uses high density materials which reduce the speaker cavity vibrations to maximise clarity of sound. Additionally the diaphragm condenser and coil are manufactured using specialist materials from Germany followed by thousands of professional tuning runs. This should result in a more balanced sound with smoother transitions between bass, mid and treble.

Noontec Hammo Go Review – User Experience and Conclusion

The Hammo Go follow a familiar styling to the previous Noontec products we have reviewed and overall it has to be said they look good. The finish is flawless across the product, the colour schemes are ideal and the little touches of brushed metal here and there add some nice enhancements. We like that this model is an over the ear design, rather than on-ear and there is a decent range of movement in the cups which allows them to sit nicely around the ear. That said, there is very little flex in the headband itself so dont go over-widening them as you put them on. The folding design works well (the inclusion of a hard case is great) and rounding off the design we have the presence of removable cable which allows us to use one which suits our needs, as well as offering a replacement should something happen…on many headsets a broken cable means a completely new headset but that isn’t the case here.

That brings us to performance where we start with the mic. It offers decent quality, ideal for making calls but anything more professional will need an alternate input device. The noise cancellation is reasonable on this headset. It deals very well with ambient noise, such as nearby fans, appliances and train cabin noise. More distinct, but not loud noise is handled well to, such as typing on a mechanical keyboard, clicking fingers from around 10inches or nearby voices. More substantial sounds such as knocks on nearby desks, or claps are still noticeable though but dampened. Noontec note about 10 hours from a couple of AAA’s so you may want to take a spare set, or get some rechargeable units… and of course we can still use the headset in passive mode if needed. So finishing with the overall quality we have a headset which offers excellent audio quality, with our without noise reduction. There is plenty of bass available from the Hammo Go, without it being overpowering and the ability for the headphones to offer fine detail, especially in older recordings. All the while giving good midrange tones. Very well balanced overall without any hint of distortion or harshness.

Summary: Another stylish, comfortable product from Noontec. We like the folding design, removable cable and bundled case but the aspect which impresses most is the audio quality. Very impressive across a range of music genres.
