Active Noise Cancelling headphones are getting a bit more complicated as there are now modes to suit the environment and even transparency mode. They tend to get pricy, but Soundcore wants to change that.

    Great video but still no on getting ANC yet until they come out with ANC and bluetooth playback at 100 hours.

  • Awesome Bryner

    One thing these are missing that the Cleer headphones have is the wired cable on Cleer is USB c to 3.5 mm. My first headphones I ever used without 3.5 to 3.5.

  • Awesome Bryner

    Neither is Cleer Enduro 100, is not bad either. Cleer ones have all the features that someone would need except ANC. Which, to me is not the much a jump into yet. Take the 100 hours playback over ANC.

    Just do yourself a favor and grab a set of these headphones. I really like that you can adjust the EQ setting with the app. The app is very accessible with voiceover and is very easy to use. The noise canceling feature is great and works even if you are using a 3.5 mm cord that is included with your headphones that is very cool in my opinion. I also use youtube music as I own a google home, and let me tell you guys, these headphones sound very good no matter what music you are playing through them. I use these in bluetooth mode with my iPhone 8 and books from audible, or through an app called bard mobile sound really good. Bard mobile is an app that can only be used by the blind. Audio dramas sound extremely good with these headphones. Check out a site called graphic audio. The site is where you can purchase full length books with narration, sound affects and music. The going into transparency mode by just holding your hand on the wright ear cup is something they took from sonies wh1000xm4 headphones that I like these much better then those. I like the included case and the build quality is very good on these headphones. I love that if I went out somewhere, I could just pick these up in there case, throw my phone in my pocket and listen to whatever I wanted and not be disturbed. These are some of the best headphones you could ever purchase for around $80. I also have to mention call quality on these is also very good. Much better then on my Sony headphones which I returned because they felt so flimsy and for paying around $300 on a black Friday deal should have felt more substantial in my opinion. Again, if you have the money, get these headphones and enjoy!!!!!

    I purchased one 4 months ago. Its not the best. The multipoint Bluetooth doesn't work well and needs manual connecting. I wouldn't recommend this product. Sound quality is average.

  • Mauro Santos

    I've tried this and the Sony 1000XM3 and there is no comparison. Of course one costs 50/60 and the other one 180/200 on offer but sound quality is so much superior, not to mention the key feature, ANC. Sony has no competition as of now. The top padding on this headset doesn't feel robust at all, NFC didn't work for me and the only positive was one fw update

    Hey Linus, how about investing in binaural mics and do a proper comparison between these budget headphones and some of the expensive go to solutions like Sony XM4s or Bose 700s? Especially in times when we have the Lock-Down in many countries it is really helpful to be able to somehow get an impression of how they stack up with the competition. Would be awesome!

    Best thing about them, for me - is the multi-point bluetooth. I use them for SfB/Teams calls all day with my laptop, whilst also having them connected to my personal mobile for music/everything else. I've been pretty happy with them so far. The mic quality was pretty shoddy before the update to v1.80, now it's decent. Now I am no longer tethered to my desk with a USB headset, so can sneak off to make a cuppa in the kitchen during a meeting. :D

    My friend has one of these, the audio quality is sub par, you would expect good bass or treble from home sound headphones, but somehow, every frequency on these is equivalent to standing next to an industrial fan while playing music through a walmart ipod nano dock. Don't consider these or any from soundcore

    I now own them and at the same time I bought the Plantronics BackBeat 2. The Plantronics were double the price and pale in comparison. I was shocked at how bad the Plantronics noise cancelling was and how amazing Soundcore's was. The sound itself is also incredible. Absolutely amazing. If there was only one negative thing I can say about them is that they need more padding on the earcuff. I also own the Boltune 2019 Upgrades and there big fat fluffy ear padding is much nicer than Soundcore. These are worth every penny and sound as good as my top-of-the-line Sonys.

    I own the Q20 and they've been one of my favorite headphones I've ever had. I've owned a wide variety of different headphones (including the audio technica ath-m50x, which were my go to set for years). I got these because I wanted a nice bluetooth set I could wear while walking. I live near a busy road and honestly I don't hear any of it really with these on. Compared to the Bluedio T6s, it was night and day. Bluedio just fills your ears with a staticy sound in hopes of drowning out the background noise. Sure I could tell over my mother in law to drown her out, but when it all becomes a dull roar anyways, there's not a lot of room for fine detail in the music. Anker got it right with this set. Most budget sets go for booming bass....but the other details get crushed. My Q20s, while not perfect, are the sort of headphone that makes you want to listen to music, just because of how nice they are. The microphone is more than acceptable, a first for any budget bluetooth set I've owned. I may not have much experience of the Q30, but when my only complaint about the Q20 was that it wasnt USB C, I don't see any other real contenders that could go against it in the budget segment.
