  1. Carolina

    I’ve had these headphones since end of December 2019, gotten for flight over the holidays. Tried out both Bose noice Cancelling headphones at local brick & mortar store, but the price caused me to pause. On to Amazon where I found these, better price, would arrive before my flight, sounded like a deal worth a shot after reading everything about them what did I have to lose with Amazon’s return policy & Anker’s reputation for quality.I’ve had great chargers, other electronic items by Anker with great results. They arrived on time well packaged, impressive from the start, but sound quality sealed the deal.Back to Anker headphones, I love them! The sound quality is amazing, when I have ANC on I can’t hear anything but music, the outside noise is indeed cancelled. Even on my really bad flight (another story) a guy wanted to test them against his B newest headphones, so we switched for a test. He said he wish he had known about Ankers quality & price, they were impressive not that he would give up the B set, but would definitely buy them as a spare or an extra pair to use for other activities, he couldn’t believe the price. He went straight to Amazon asked me if the pair he chose were the same as mine, they were & he ordered them. That kind of confirmed I have a great pair of anc headphones & didn’t pay $$$ for them,They pair easily and are comfortable – until I’ve worn for hours then my shades/glasses are indented in my skull, time for a break, but that’s after hours of wearing-enjoying great sounding music 4-6 hrs & battery is still strong, time fly by.There are only 2 minor suggestions for Anker regarding these headphones 1) add to Soundcore app please (after thought I don’t know if it’s needed unless to customize equalizer) the volume can be controlled on the headphones. 2) the headband could use a slight redesign. Wearing them while working out, doing lawn work or inside cleaning, cooking, always moving about (excellent BT range btw), the top of headband pulls my hair as the headband is adjustable it tends to slide a wee bit & my hair gets pulled so I have to adjust them & keep going, I’ve no idea how they could do this it’s something I noticed when trying out my son’s. He bought a cheap pair of JBL headphones for lawn mowing, they do fit a little better but don’t compare to Ankers sound quality, imho Would love JBL type fit on Anker Life Q20 hybrid ANC headphones!Taking phone calls while wearing headphones works great, I asked how did I sound, fine he said, then we laughed when I told him I was listening to music on my Ankers when he called & I took the call while wearing my headphones. Neither of us had any problems with quality of call. Volume is easy to find & adjust the multifunction button is easy to use for music or calls.They come with the charging cable, though I wish more companies included the wall plug in,I don’t always have a spare just ling around, ok so I never have a spare just laying about. Also the aux cable is included though I haven’t used that feature yet. A drawstring pouch to put them in, which was good as I didn’t have a case to put them in for my flight & no time to get one. Instructions are well written Anker products are always first classLove these headphones, the ANC & overall sound quality at this price point is a gift that keeps on giving. The quality of this model looks & sounds like the much higher price headphones, maybe better than some. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy for a gift as they come gift wrap ready or a gift of music for me.Overall Ankers entry into the headphone, earbud market is welcomed. I wouldn’t hesitate to try them out if you’re looking for headphones with ANC Fantastic sound, that doesn’t break the budget to tears, give them a listen I think you’re going to love them.Simply put my Anker Life Q20 ANC headphones are fantastic in quality and sound. I’m not an audiophile but I can’t find a thing disappointing in these, not quality or sound. I like a variety of music & I hear good bass, mid tones & treble, vocal it’s all there. As said for everything including quality these headphones deliver at a price that doesn’t break the bank & with Ankers outstanding customer service is amazing. I can honestly say Anker SoundCore is definitely impressive, just as their charging cables, & other electronic devices that was my first introduction to Anker products. I’m sure I’ll look at their Bluetooth speakers soon.Sorry for overly long review, there’s so many outstanding elements that I feel are important for customers to know when spending your money,I try to offer as much info I’ve experienced as possible, I’ve relied on Amazon customer reviews when making a purchase, they’re brutally honest good or bad & I appreciate that.I’ve had & used these headphones since late 22nd December, tonight is 25 July enough time to really evaluate them, they’ve exceeded my expectations, I would definitely recommend, most of all I would buy them again.Thanks if you did read this long review, good intentions to help others as they shop. UPDATE 12 August a friend of mine used my Ankers while visiting. He called back he had received his very own Anker Life Q 20 headphones. That says a lot about the sound & quality whilst respecting the customers wallet, he was so happy with his new headphones & that I recommended Ankers.Thanks again to Amazon shoppers, Amazon & Anker

  2. Wendell Powell

    First off, this is not a comparison between the Anker Soundcore Q20s and any product from Bose or Sony.. That is an unfair comparison as they are not even in the same ball park.. I know that most people want to get an understanding of how comparable they are to those but if you aren’t willing to spend the money on those, you aren’t going to get near what they offer..That being said, for this price range these are the best hands down.. One hit KO.. I’ll list all the features separately so they are easy to find and read about.Active Noise Cancellation:Let me get some things out of the way, I work at a gas plant in a landfill as IT and Data Reporting.. My job is noisy sometimes.. I hear a constant hum from the motors in the plant right outside my door all day long.. I also travel a lot from the various plants we run.. While ANC is on these headphones won’t block out immediate talking next to me or sudden loud noises, but they do block out the noise from the plant.. That is without the music.. I do need to point out that the talking is trying to talk over motors so it’s louder than your average office space. When the music is on and running, it adds a whole separate layer to the cancellation as I can no longer hear anything else..Sound:I don’t typically have music up loud, most I’ve turned them up to is 50% because I’ve been rough on my ear drums since I was a kid playing drums at a young age.. As I’ve gotten older I’ve been more prone to try and protect my ears.. That being said, the sound quality is very nice with or without ANC engaged.. I find it’s way more enjoyable with ANC on due to everything else being tuned out.. Some headphones will warp the sound when ANC is turned on, these do not.. The sound is as impressive with the feature on as it is off.. This is incredible.. I listen to a range of music from Rap and Hip-Hop to Metal and Hard Rock and they all sound clear and precise in these headphones..They do have a bass-up feature that increases the bass a little more.. This works well without muddying the sound quality too much.. I imagine if you increase the volume too much it might diminish but from my listening around the 50% max it’s been outstanding.. Bass gains can be a real hit and miss for me as some lose sound quality.. With these that’s not the case..Quality:The headphones feel amazing.. They have a nice weight to them (which is not for everyone). I personally like a little weight to my equipment.. It is sturdy and feels solid.. I was afraid of it feeling a little too plastic like but they really don’t.. Now they aren’t as nice as your $200-$300 headphone, but again, their price range they are amazing quality.. The ear cups are very comfortable and soft memory foam.. I was actually surprised that my ears don’t get as hot as normal.. They will overtime due to the design.. It’s impossible to get around since it traps heat, but these seem like they don’t get as warm as fast.. Also the ear cups feel amazing.. I’ve literally worn them all day yesterday and felt no ear fatigue or strain.. This is a solid!Functionality:A feature that isn’t talked about a lot with these is the awesome ability to connect to not just one but two devices simultaneously.. Now a note on that: You cannot listen to two devices at the same time.. What is going on is I’m able to connect to my computer and listen to music on it while being connect to my phone at the same time.. When someone calls me and I answer, it swaps input to my iPhone and stops playing the music in my ears.. Once the call is finished, it swaps back to my computer and I resume listening.. This is an amazing feature that I use daily!Battery:The battery is very nice.. When I received my unit the first thing I did was pair it to my devices (of course) and started checking it out.. I received them with 60% battery.. I used them the rest of that day at work for a couple of hours.. then when I left, used them a little more at the house and watched half of a movie on them before going to bed.. They were still at 60%.. The box says that they last 40 hours and that is accurate.. If you don’t use the Bass-Up technology you can squeeze even more.. and to not use the ANC it goes up higher.. 40 hours for battery life though is incredible for this price range.. I cannot complain!Packaging:The packaging was very nice and well put together.. It came with a charge cable and 3.5mm aux cable (which is great for my Nintendo Switch when I fly).. While I would have loved to seen a USB-C type adapter (as would many others) that is still an expensive change to make and would probably bump the price up out of the $60 range.. I understand from a manufacturing point the reasoning to possibly go with a micro-USB.. It would be nice for C, but it is what it is.. That doesn’t change how well this thing is made and works.. The only gripe I have and it’s a minor thing is the case they come with.. Well, you can’t call it a case cause it’s just a bag.. Now, it’s a very nice bag, but I throws these buys in a backpack with a laptop and iPad and Switch (in a hardcase) and so a bag doesn’t really protect your headphones.. Luckily I had a nice hard case from a cheap pair of headphone I received a few years ago (the case was the nicest part) and they fit perfectly.. So if you don’t have one buy a hard case for them..Overall:Overall, for the price these are the best hands down.. You really cannot beat their ANC and sound quality for this price.. I will definitely buy these again and probably buy my wife some so she’ll stop stealing mine.. If it was out of 10, I’d give this product a 9/10 simply due to no hard shell case..

    These headphones are absolutely incredible! The sound quality is awesome, and it is not bass heavy, but pretty balanced to my tastes. It has a very long battery life as I have not charged this since it arrived about a couple of days ago and it still has 30% of life (according to my phone). The charger is a micro usb cable as a side note.It also has great noise cancelling. While it is not going to completely blow you away, it is definitely helpful at blocking out noise. The only downside is that in order to use the noise cancelling you have to be in bluetooth mode.You can also use it with an aux cord (included) and it will act as normal headphones. It is very convenient. If you don’t want to use battery life you can just use the aux cord and enjoy no latency as well.The build quality is good too. It is made of plastic but it has quite a bit of flexibility. The earcups can swivel a bit making it comfortable and able to fit a variety of heads.Overall, if you are considering getting these headphones you absolutely should. I’m sure you won’t regret it. Amazing headphones at this price!

  4. Daniel Rockey

    This is a review comparing these headphones to the Bose Quietcomfort 35 II, and the Sony WH-1000XM4.Now I know what your thinking – how could you ever compare a cheapo $50 pair of headphones to the $300+ big boys in the noise cancelling world like Bose and Sony? Well these headphones are wireless, bluetooth, active noise cancelling, and promote themselves as comfortable with balanced sound, so in my book all three of these headphones are in the same league.The criteria is simple – I don’t use lab equipment to measure, I’m not concerned about exact numbers, and I don’t like falling for overblown hype or marketing nonsense. I use my own experience and non-technical knowledge to decide what I like best.The Soundcore Headphones:These headphones are comfortable. Maybe it’s because of the ‘cheaper’ materials, or they are just genuinely made with comfort more in mind, but I can wear these all day with little discomfort. I wear glasses so a little annoyance is unavoidable, but these do a bang up job of not squishing my head, while still making a good seal around my ears to keep sound quality and noise cancelling from bleeding out. I have heard some having issues with durability, but my bose quietcomfort headphones wore out and cracked over time too. Replacements are plentiful and cheap, so it’s a non issue for me.Comparability and Software:These are what headphones are meant to be. Simple buttons, simple pairing, no proprietary software that I have to download, no nonsense. Just pair and play. They also have a wired mode if I’m editing video or need them to not have any delay. Bluetooth will always have a bit of a delay, but it’s nothing deal breaking, a few milliseconds at most. They do not have multidevice pairing, or absolutely massive bluetooth range (it still works perfectly for me going around my whole house no problem), and there is no EQ balancing, other than the Bass Boost.Overall SoundI’m not a pro audio engineer or audiophile. If it sounds good, it’s good to me. I like these headphones in normal mode just fine. While the overall sound stage is fairly tight, and it can sometimes feel cramped with complex or intricate songs, I don’t feel overwhelmed in any one way or another. The negative I have here is with their ‘bass boost’s mode. It’s fair to say it does boost the bass, at the cost of literally everything else. It almost makes it sound like every other frequency is underwater when it’s turned on. I keep it off 100% of the time – it’s bad.Noise Cancelling:Here is the meat and potatoes of the review. I bought these for noise cancelling and noise cancelling alone. I was surprised – they are pretty good. My air conditioner dissolves away. Car noises and wind fade to imperceptible levels, and airplane sounds go completely away. The area it falls short in is human speech. I can still hear people without much difference. Not a killer for me, but slightly lacking in that regard. They also do not give me the headache compression feeling that some other noise cancelling can give me.Comparisons:Comfort – These surprisingly win. The Bose Quietcomforts are very close, but the headpeice is slightly tighter, leading to overall head pressure discomfort over time. The Sonys are even worse, with their high weight and size they can feel heavy over time, and make my ears warm after about 1 hour.Compatibility and Software – These are also the winners! Sony and Bose just cannot help themselves when it comes to collecting data and making their customers sign up for BS accounts. I’m not a super privacy nerd either, but when I have to take a photo of my ears (looking at you Sony!) Just to listen to music, I draw the line. The Quietcomforts are better, but the Bose app is just another step in between me and my music. Bose at least keeps the physical buttons, which I enjoy because touch controls are still a bit picky in 2020. Sony knows this well, as I fumbled and accidentally turned off my music or changed the volume or song accidentally about a dozen times on their headphones. Physical buttons are arguably uglier, but I value practicality over style in this regard. The Sonys also have multidevice pairing, and their bluetooth range is just stupid far, but I don’t usually run a whole football field away from my phone at a time.Overall Sound – Sony comes first, followed by Bose, and then the Soundcores. The Sony headphones are very crisp, with a wide sense of space. I genuinely couldnt stop myself from smiling when I first put them on. They induce a sense of awe, and I loved their sound immensely. The Bose was slightly worse, and only a touch better than the Soundcores. Bose has cleaner bass, and a better sense of staging, especially with singing and high hat sounds. If I were to number them by sound the Sonys get a 96, the Bose a 85, and the Soundcores a 82.Noise Cancelling – Sony once again wins, but this time the Bose and Soundcores are tied. I genuinely could not tell the difference between the Bose and Soundcores when my eyes were closed as far as noise cancelling was concered. The Sonys I could though. They do a significant better job with human voices, especially crowds like in restaurants or outside. They are still audible, but pass the point where I cannot understand what people are saying – the Bose and Soundcores fail this test.The Overall:Comparing these headphones is an excercise in diminishing returns. For $50 the Soundcores cover about 90% of what the $300 Bose Quietcomforts offer, and about 85% of what the $350 Sony WH-1000XM4 offer. To me, that remaining 10% and 15% does not justify the additional $250 and $300 price tag. Now maybe you’re the kind of person who absolutely has to have the best noise cancelling, or can’t live without the absolute cream of the crop perfect soundscape – and in those instances the features may justify the cost. But chances are if you’re debating on these headphones you are just the average Joe consumer like me, in which case these headphones will cover everything you need without bogging you down in unnecessary features or quality thay will go unnoticed in 99% of the population. I genuinely like these headphones, and will continue to lovingly give them daily abuse until they fail me. After all, I could buy and break FIVE of these before I reached the price of one pair of Sonys.TL:DR Give them a chance, you’ll more than likely find their value apparent.

  5. Mr R

    UPDATE #1: Thurs., 6/30/22:PROS: 1. They are very comfortable to wear; 2. can either block out 95% of external noise or just 60% (your selectable choice); 3. your external devices MUST have a pairable capability, obviously. 4. The company has an outstanding Customer Satisfaction record.CONS: 1. After I downloaded the User’s Manual, I had to enlarge it 150% so that it fits on an 8-1/2 sheet of paper just to make it readable, and it NEEDS TO BE READ – CAREFULLY! And the FIGURES NEED TO BE ANALYZED – CAREFULLY. Hopefully you have a printer that will allow you to magnify to whatever level you’re comfortable with. If you can’t, you’ll want to find someone who does – but it’s worth it! If you read English, you only need to print the first 4 pages. The other 40+ pages are written in many other languages. 2. Pairing up with other devices can be a major challenge, e.g., my TOSHIBA laptop which even has an invokable Bluetooth option. ( I still haven’t worked that out.)Regardless of the CONS, I still recommend this noise cancelling, Bluetooth headset, and would buy it again.UPDATE #2: Fri., 7/29/22:The above headset worked perfectly right out of the box – but – I returned it after 28 days. The right ear piece developed a brief randomly intermittent static followed by a complete loss of sound for a few seconds. Then the sound returned to normal. It seemed like a loose wire issue (?) – just a one-off QC issue that no other Reviews had mentioned. Amazon credited my account for the full price within 2 to 4 hours after they accepted the return.UPDATE #3: Mon., 8/1/22: I liked all other features soooo much that I bought an identical headset from the same company a couple days later, assuming that the next pair would be perfect. The next problem was mine, which I’ve corrected, so I’m a happy camper. ? (You can’t have TWO “Paired and Disconnected” copies of the same headset listed on your TV screen if you expect the headset to work – one of them needs to be deleted – then you can Select ‘connect’ and the headset will instantly give you the sound you’re craving.I’ll keep this updated with any other legitimate issues – along with any appropriate change in my review STARS.

    I bought these because I thought they were a good value for the money. I recently started back to college and use them to “cancel” my family and other noises while I work. They work BEAUTIFULLY for this purpose and I am happily hammering out my school papers to the sound of Lindsay Sterling and friends, oblivious to everything else. Fast forward 1+ year later, I went to use them and they won’t turn on, at all. I play Dr. Google and try the usual- different outlet, charger, hard reset, and finally decide, what the heck, even though it’s been a year and I am quite certain they are out of warranty and a fix will either be more than it’s worth in shipping/cost. Imagine my SHOCK when my new bestie at Anker, Malcolm, said in fact they ARE still under warranty (how long IS this amazing warranty?? I actually don’t know, but it is at least longer than 12 months!?), AND he said keep the broken pair, they are shipping me a new set, pronto, at no cost to me. Like, what?? Most places would have at MINNIMUM had me send my broken set back (looking at you, JBL), but I am seriously thrilled and amazed at this fairytale customer service experience. In 2022, good customer service is, in fact, NOT dead! THANK YOU ANKER.

    TLDR it’s a good deal for 53 bucks which was the price when I bought these headphones.Pros:-Soft ear cushions and soft cushion on top of headband = comfortable for wearing for long periods-The battery life is unbelievably long; I’ve never run out of charge. I can charge them for an hour or 2 and they’re good to use for the rest of the day. Huge change from the airpods I was using for wireless listening.-Bluetooth pairing is simple, no issues yet.-Controlling volume up/down, pausing, skipping and previous track controls all work great.-There’s noise cancelling. You can also use NC when using the aux cord! (The noise cancelling kinda sucks though)-It comes with an aux cable, 3.5 mm each side I think. Nice for when you don’t want to do wireless. The cable is short but at least it comes with one-Wearing these headphones looks good, its a simple design but I’m a fanCons:-Aux cable is short, and it’s connected to the right side of the headphones. A con for me due to how my computer’s ports are set up but maybe it won’t be an issue for you, and if it is luckily 3.5 mm aux cables are pretty cheap.-Sound quality is a bit muffled, but not to the point where it bothered me. If sound quality is your number 1 priority for mixing and audio production, look for a different pair of headphones. These get the job done for listening to tunes, podcasts, gaming, etc.-The noise cancelling is weak, worked well sometimes but other times it kinda makes the audio sound choppy, like imagine how it sounds when you speak through a fan with blades spinning, your voice can sound chopped up. That can happen to the audio when you turn on the NC sometimes, maybe 50% of the time when you turn on Noise Cancelling. It’s harder to notice when you increase the volume of the music/ whatever you’re listening to but this NC might be annoying to some who may need to use noise cancelling constantly. Luckily you can turn off the NC if you don’t need to use it, and it improves the sound quality when you turn it off and improves battery life I believe.The cons aren’t bothersome enough for me to take off a star. I never take the time to write reviews on Amazon since I dislike writing, unless I really enjoy the product. I’ve been using these headphones for over 6 months and they’ve been working fantastic, way above my expectations. Gradually, I started to get the feeling of “Hey… these headphones are pretty great… maybe I should let others know about a decent product from amazon cuz heck, I’ve been tricked into buying s****y products because of fake amazon reviews all the time”. So there you go, hope this info can help someone out

    Not a headphone junkie. Most headphones/earbuds sound the same to me. I buy my tech based on quality, comfort, and price. And IPX rating for earbuds.I bought these a couple years ago. I used them a few times and didn’t really care for them too much. I recently started using them again with my woojer and this has changed the way I experience music.These don’t really work well for phone calls or meetings. I find that whoever I’m talking to always has a hard to time hearing me.I decided to finally write a review after 2 years because I recently brought them on a business trip. The noise cancelation on these headphones is unbelievable. I didn’t notice it at first as I was watching Netflix. Put my phone away to take a nap and then turned off the headphones. Immediately, it was so noisy and loud. So I kept my headphones turned on the rest of the flight. I didn’t realize the noise canceling feature was available without audio.They are very comfortable. Wore them 6+ hours and slept most the time.They were on sale for $40 when I purchased. But I think it’s still a great deal compared to other brand name headphones that sell for $200+ where the average consumer can barely tell the difference in sound quality.

    There aren’t enough stars to give these Soundcore Noise Canceling Headphones the rating it deserves! This particular product is no joke; the noise-canceling feature means business! As an undergraduate research assistant, my job is to listen for and code different vocalizations of the Aye-aye lemur species. My trusty Panasonic headphones do not drown out enough background noise for the work I do, so I needed a pair that could do just that.After reading hundreds of product reviews from Amazon customers and other web sources, I finally settled for these, and I am SO glad I did! I will list for you the things that I was looking for in a good pair of headphones and how this product has met every expectation:1. I have a tiny head and was hesitant to buy a pair of headphones online without the chance to try them on first. These are on the smallest setting and fit like a glove!2. Once turned on, a voice will tell you where the battery level is at. Even after using them for 5-7 hours, my battery is still high the next time I turn them on!3. Bluetooth! Super easy to pair once both devices are turned on.4. Comes with both chords shown (adapter NOT included! It’s just in the photos to show that almost any wall adapter is compatible. This happens to be a Samsung wall adapter).5. The power one is a bit short, as you can see in the 3rd photo where I have it charging. The second chord is if you prefer to plug them straight into a device, such as a desktop computer, laptop, or phone. However, you will need a small adapter for an iPhone and iPad.6. They fold up nicely to fit into the bag it comes with, which is durable and good quality.7. These headphones DO NOT come charged; you WILL NEED to charge them for about 4-5 hours when you get them.8. The noise-canceling feature can be turned on or off by pressing down on the N.C. button next to the power button for a few seconds. You can hear the difference when switching the feature on and off. Plus, this feature works SO well that I often can not hear the person sitting next to me while I am working in the lab.9. I wear them often when working out in public and tend to be someone who sweats a lot. Luckily, I have not had any issues with sweat affecting the sound quality, which was something that ruined an older pair I had many years ago.10. Proof that you can get an incredibly effective Noise Canceling pair of headphones for under $100!

    First off, I’m just a regular user, not an audiophile. I would love a set of Bose, but I don’t have the bankroll for that. I decided to try these headphones, and boy, am I glad I did!I’ll address the noise cancelling aspect first. I recently spent several weeks in the ICU with a loved one, and I would put these on at night while sleeping in a recliner. They immediately removed all the background noise like pumps, beeps, people, and the like. I didn’t hear anything! Yet if a doctor or nurse called my name, I heard them immediately.I don’t know what techno sorcery Anker used, but it works. Granted, if an IV alarm kept getting louder, you could hear it some, but they’re designed to be obnoxiously loud in an ICU. Almost all the other noises were gone completely.To address the sound side of things, I would put on nature sounds or rain storms at night to relax, and they sounded just like they should. I also listen to a wide range of techno, house, and trance, and these phones get the job done. At mid volume, you can hear every effect, just like if you’re there. Bass is there plenty!Comfort was awesome. I have a big head, and many headphones are uncomfortable because they’re too small. These fit over the ear with room to spare. The cups are a soft foam covered with what feels like real leather. The headpiece also has a soft foam piece under it. They stayed put while sleeping in a recliner, so bonus points. If you have a small head, these might be too much size wise.I had been using these for months almost every day, at home and on the go. I would recommend getting a hard clam shell case if you’re always throwing your headphones in a bag or case, but these are surprisingly rugged. They have very strong swivel hinges, and fold fairly flat.Battery life is awesome, easily twenty hours on a charge. Noise cancelling usually causes a fair drain on a charge, but I leave it on all the time because they sound better to me, and I don’t notice a difference in charge life. I charge these on my Anker 4 slot USB charger, and they’re usually done in a couple of hours.Support from Anker is awesome. I noticed cracks on each side above the swivels, and they were out of the 90 day period for Amazon’s support, so Amazon sent me a link to Anker’s team and a copy of my sale’s receipt. Anker’s tech support was a breeze to deal with. Sent them a picture of each side’s cracks, and they sent me a new set of headphones. That’s customer service!I am really happy with my purchase. To get a set of sound cancelling headphones that works great, sounds great, and has awesome support at this price point is a no-brainer. Go buy a pair now!
