Treblab Z2 Review | Wireless Active Noise Cancelling Headphones
This is Treblab’s over-the-ears headphones featuring an active noise cancellation (ANC). The package comes included with the hard carrying case, the charging cable and the male-to-male 3.5mm headphone jack if you feel like going to old school analog way. You can use the headphone cable in analog mode without powering on the headphones which is neat. Latest pricing here Amazon/Shopee/Lazada.
The Treblab Z2 uses Bluetooth 4.2 with aptX support, tho I wished it had NFC for multi device pairing. The maximum stable line of sight range is 12 meters. For ergonomic adjustment, there is a 2 way swivel and the headband that extends up to nearly 3 cm which is reinforced with a metal bands. The headbands has thin padding that curve well around the head. Looking at the ear-cups the overall size is 9 cm by 7.5 cm with the opening being 6 cm by 4 cm, the depth of 2 cm and padding thickness around 2 cm.
The tip of my ear does touch the insides of the ear cup so personally a thicker padding would be nice. The ear-cup is somewhat soft but have a good structure doesn’t collapse easily and retains its shape which helps with passive sound isolation. Shaking my head aggressively hard, headphone still hold on to my head well.
When it comes to the active noise cancelling is does block the majority of the low frequency noise in your environment without adding back any weird humming noise to your ears. If they improve the noise cancelling range up to the lower-mids or another 20-30 Hz they can rival to the well known and established brands in the market. It a good effort by Treblab no doubt.
The Treblab Z2 is powered by a pair of 40mm neodymium drivers. The battery is rated to last up to 35 hours. Our battery life test is based on the iPhone 6 at the 3rd volume bar. When noise cancelling is on, we managed to reach 25 hours and 30 minutes of battery life. When noise cancelling is off, we managed to get 37 hours and 15 minutes.

Tiaan – Be Ok (Low bass frequency)
The low bass frequency is superbly energetic and highly notable, you can feel the air pressure movement in your ears. The Low bass frequency is well bodied. It doesn’t muffle the vocals and has zero bass distortion. The subtle bass vibration fades smoothly and the low bass overpowers the vocals.
Pia Mia – Do It Again (Standard bass)
The bass is superbly energetic and firm, you can feel the air pressure once more. The bass fades butter-smooth with a long drag especially at the 2:05 mark, the vibrations is just eargasm. The bass does slightly overpower the vocals, there is a clear separation between the two where the vocals are not muffle. Bass is well bodied. The EDM tones sounds fun and excited.
Violinder – Raindrops (Instrumental)
The piano/violin tone sounds right and natural, it leans closer to the crystal-clear type not the warm-sounding type. Personally, I prefer crystal-clear type. It has right amount of shine at the highs, just right on. Tones are well bodied doesn’t sound half-hearted. The bass/drums does slightly overpowers the piano/violin in term of audible levels, tho there is clear separation between the two.
Pentatonix – See Through (Hi pitch vocals)
Mitch Grassi’s High-pitched-male Tenor vocals performs very well at the highs with the right amount of shine, it feels good especially at 0:45 mark. Each singer can be identified easily. Every diction and pronunciation is crystal clear. Vocal beat-boxing, echoing and humming is eargasm but it does overpowers Mitch Grassi’s vocal in the song.
The Treblab Z2 does perform well when it comes to the low bass frequency up to the highest possible frequency that I can hear. The strength isn’t just pure bass experience but the clarity and shine at the upper-mids to the high frequency. This is a surprising coming from Treblab, well known for its bass heavy audio line up but instead they took a different approach this time. This headphone is great for cinematic video, games and casual usage.
