Fit, Comfort & Isolation
No doubt of AtomicX V201 comfort here. Yes, it is pleasant to wear for long hour thanks to well cushioned thick headband and large thick soft pads. Fit well with its adjustable headband and rotatable ear cups too. However, isolation is on the average side for an over the ear headphones. It does block some of the environment noises but don’t expect much from here. Same apply to sound leakage, others can hear a little bit if you play really loud.

Performance Result
iDea V201 is the name when it get connected with your devices through Bluetooth. The range is decent – easily exceeds 10m Bluetooth range in straight sight line with no obstacle. Almost up to 7m with obstacles. As long as your devices have Bluetooth connection, you should not have any issue to pair with iDea V201. Pairing is as simple as ABC. As usual, 3.5mm AUX cable is there for you when Bluetooth is not available. Or ran out of battery life…

Active noise cancelling (ANC) is okay for this price range headphones. But don’t expect it will block all the background noises totally. It does cancelling some of ambient sounds like fan noise here. But not so much as I would like it to be. Maybe the passive isolation affect the result here too.

On the other hand, iDea V201 battery life is excellent. I am getting almost 20 hours of non-stop music playback with its 500+ mAh battery. Yup, all the tests were done with active noise cancelling enabled. ANC does use some of the battery life here. Therefore, you will get much longer battery life with ANC turned off. By the way, there is battery indicator status on iOS devices like iPhone, iPad and iPod to check remaining battery life. Some Android devices are able to show that too. Lastly, it requires around 2 hour plus to fully charge. That’s fast.

As for phone call quality, it is decent. Others can hear my voice loud and clear. No problem to hear others from here too. One thing to take note – built-in mic is not working on wired mode.

Sound Quality
AtomicX V201 has warm sound signature with ANC turned on. You will get brighter treble and forward highs & mids (close to your ear) with it off. In short, sound quality is okay at this price range as a Bluetooth ANC headphones. Same apply to soundstage and instruments separation. Good companion when travel with the ultra long battery life, right?
