You may have many questions regarding these headphones. So, today I am here to give you a review of these latest over-ear headphones.
Status Flagship ANC Headphones are mainly closed-backed, over-ear headphones with the latest technology. This is “Touch Controlling Feature.” This fantastic feature pushed me to write this review today.
So, let’s not waste time. I will show you all the necessary detailed information. This might help you choose your desired headphone, which you are searching for.
Now, I am revealing you Status Audio Flagship ANC Headphone at a single glance. Have a look below:
Status Flagship ANC At Single Glance
- Hybrid Digital Active Noise Cancelling Headphones.
- 4x external microphones.
- Touch controlling feature.
- Transparency mode.
- Multipoint pairing support.
- 35 hours of battery life with USB-C charger cable.
“Are you super excited to know what was there in the box?” Keep patience. I am disclosing it now.
In The Box
As I ordered Flagship ANC from the online store, I was so delighted when I got my parcel from the delivery man.
I didn’t wait anymore. I just opened the box and saw a hard-shell box was looking at me. I unzipped the box and looked at my desired headphone.
I also had some extra accessories like-
- 1.2-meter aux audio cable with 3.5 mm jack.
- An airline adopter.
- USB-C charging cable.
- One manual.
- Warranty card.
You already know it is a Bluetooth headphone. To give you the Non-Bluetooth Wireless Support, they have provided you an extra audio cable. You can use your headphone when the Bluetooth connection isn’t available, or the battery is dead.
They also have provided airline adopter, which is two-prong plugs. You can also enjoy plane traveling by this airline adopter.
You need to use only that USB-C cable which they have provided. Now you might have a question- “Why shouldn’t I use another USB-C charger to charge it?”
Because different charging standards are outside of their control. For example, your laptop’s USB-C charger won’t charge your headphones.
If you need to use a third-party charger, that should originate in a USB-A connection.

Do you have any questions regarding Flagship’s comfortability?
If so!! Then let’s talk about that…
How Much Comfortable The Status Flagship Is?
Status Flagship ANC headphones are comparatively light-weighted and comfy to wear. These fit in-ear very gently.
The Earpads are super soft and made with memory foam, and lined with sumptuous vegan-leather like material.
The headband can also be adjusted. So, you can easily adjust your headband to your size. The underside of the headband is also made of the same leather, which feels comfortable to wear.
People with bigger heads can also use these headphones without any hesitation.
The clamping force is also very favorable. So, it will not fall out while wearing. As its clamping force is good, so you can use it while lying on the bed.
Flagship is also comfortable with wearing glasses. As it is an over-ear headphone, its soft pads won’t make any hassle while wearing glasses.
Maybe a question arises about- Flagship headphone’s sound profile in your mind. Don’t worry. I am also giving you all the detailed information about Flagship Sound Profile now.
Sound Profile Of Status Flagship ANC
Flagship ANC headphones provide a mind-blowing Stereo Sound Profile. I have experienced that the sound quality is too good. The sound is clear because of the frequency range, which is 10Hz – 30kHz.
As we know, the driver is 40mm, which means the bass accuracy of Flagship headphones is upstanding.
You will feel every beat of a song. So, we can say the bass is high here.
I personally felt that the treble range of Flagship is decent but not more than the Mid-Range. I must say that it is very well balanced.
“Lonesome Lover”- Max Roach song felt decent when I listened to it while wearing this headphone.
The Mid-Range is outstanding. “The Holy Men”-World Saxophone Quartet song felt so smooth. I could listen to the singer’s voice with low harmonics.
Let’s talk about the sound stage of Flagship ANC. Keep your sight on below:
The soundstage of Status Flagship is comparatively better than Status Audio BT One.
I could hear “Linkin Park- In The End” very clear, and the bass was also excellent.
Many of my friends were asking me about Flagship’s sound leakage. So, I am letting you know about it from my personal experience.
Status Flagship’s Headphone is quite decent in sound leakage.
If you listen at a high volume level in a quiet room, then a little bit of sound may hear your near person. BUT NOT THAT MUCH LEVEL.
Now maybe you are thinking about the Noise Cancelling feature, Right??? Nothing to worry about at all. LET’S KNOW IT.
Flagship is the best Hybrid Digital Active Noise Cancelling headphone. It cancels a staggering ambient noise up to 35db. The Qualcomm cVc noise cancellation technology reduces background noise.
For this reason, these headphones are market-leading headphones of all others.
Turn the sound level low before placing the headphones on your ear.
As I have already said, Flagship has touch control features. You might be confused about this, Right??? Let’s take off your confusion in the blink of your eyes.
How To Control?
Two buttons are on the right ear-cup. At first, hold the small button for Power On/Off.
Then tap the big button to cycle through listening modes:
- Active Noise Cancelling.
- Ambient Sound Mode (you will hear your surrounding sounds).
- Normal Listening Mode (no ANC or Ambient sound).
You will hear voice prompts so you will know which mode you are in.
Touch Control (Tracks)
If you want to control tracks, then swipe left and right.
A swipe right will skip the track forward. Again, a swipe left will rewind the current track and go back to your previous track.
To play/pause music, you need to double-tap the center of the right earcup.
These three listening modes made this headphone so special. You can easily change your mode as your wish.
Touch Control (Volume)
If you want to control your volume level then, swipe up and down on the right (R) earcup.
Quick swipe up or down will adjust your volume level.
For larger volume adjustments, you need to swipe and hold your finger in that place. Volume will adjust as your finger in that contact with the ear-cup.
Touch Controls (Other)
There is a great feature which is voice assistant (Siri, Google Voice, Cortana). You just need to hold your finger in the center of the right earcup for a voice assistant.
This same command will work for hang-up the phone call during a phone call.
Again, transparency mode- you need to place your three fingers on the right ear-cup to instantly pipe in ambient noise.
But transparency mode will take time to change one to another mode.
There are 4x external mics that enable you to have clear-crystal, frustration-free calls.
These mics work far better than Status Audio CB 1.
But there is a lack of a mute mic feature. You need to mute your mic from your device.
Recording Quality Of Status Flagship
As I have already said, Status Flagship has 4x external mic features and it reduces noise very gently. So, it can be a great option for recording.
Audiophiles, musicians, and everyday music lovers can smoothly go for this headphone.
Are you worried about the building quality of Status Flagship? I am disclosing everything about its building quality now. Have a look here:
Flagship headphones are made of plastic. I have noticed that most of their Status Audio headphones are made of plastic. This might look a little bit cheapy.
Again, the joints of the headband are not durable, I think. They may break anytime.
But just because of this plastic material, the headphones are light weighted.
The earpads are not changeable. So, you cannot replace the earpads. This is one of the negative issues, I guess.
Status.co provides a 1-year warranty and 30-Day Performance Guarantee to their customers. Within 30-Days, if the headphone doesn’t meet your expectation, then you can ask for a refund.
Only U.S. customers will get free return shipping.
Do you want to know about the style? Now let’s talk about Flagship’s style and design.
There are no other designs or colors of Status Flagship. This is available only in one color, which is Matte Black.
These headphones also look classy and stylish at an affordable price.
You must be confused about Status Flagship’s portability. No worries at all. Your confusion is going to over very soon. Because now I am going to disclose about the portability of Status Flagship.
This headphone’s weight is 260 grams or 9.2 ounces so that you can assume it as a very lightweight headphone.
Again, you can fold it without any hesitation. As it is light weighted and foldable, you can easily carry these headphones wherever you want.
You just need to fold and carry it in the hard-shell case.
I have already mentioned to you about the clamping force earlier. So, I can say there is a narrow possibility of falling the headphone.
But I think it is not suitable for jogging or exercising. It may fall that time.
You can use earbuds for that. You make check- “Apple AirPods” You can enjoy music while doing exercise or jogging.
I am sorry to say that, Flagship is not waterproof. If you want to take it underwater, like-swimming, then it will damage.
I have experienced that; these headphones aren’t sweatproof at all. Maybe it varies from person to person.
I think you are waiting to know its Bluetooth details. Your waiting time is over. Have a look below to know all the detailed information about Flagship Bluetooth.
You will have the latest version of Bluetooth, which is Bluetooth 5.0 with Apt-X HD. This Bluetooth range will cover 15-meter.
So, you can easily enjoy your headphones within a 15-meter range. But you can lose Bluetooth connection if you take more than a 15-meter range.
Another great feature is the multi-device pairing option. You can easily connect two devices at a time. Like you can connect this headphone from both your phone and laptop at a time.
To pair again and again is frustrating. So, this option has made these headphones super easy to pair.
No need for any App Support. You can easily operate these headphones.
Now it’s time to know about the Battery Life of Flagship. So, let’s see it.
The performance of the battery life of Status Flagship ANC Headphones is fantastic. The battery is made of Lithium lon, which supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge Technology.
It will provide you 35-hour playback music just in one charge. They offer a USB-C charger for charging your headphones.
It will take time like 1 hour to charge up fully. So, you don’t need to wait hours and hours for charging your headphones.
I didn’t find any Power-saving features in these headphones.
