    I’ve tried in ear pod things: I have tiny ear canals and nothing works either for comfort or for sound quality. So, over ear phones it is. Oh! The joy. A dear friend gave me a pair of JBL Everest 710 to try and I loved them. However, the ear things were perishing and falling apart. Time to replace and on a budget of £50 ish. Much research and reviews shortlisted these with some JBL’s. These won because reviews consistently said that they are well made, robust and very comfortable. They fold (not important to me so far – but it might be), they’re adjustable for crown to ear distance and the ear pieces have some ‘twist’ adjustment to allow for face contours. I’m retired and rarely travel by train or airplane so NC was not my criteria and wasn’t important to me – until I tried it whilst vacuuming! Marvelous! Mowing the lawn? – Fabulous. I listen mainly to Baroque vocal and instrumental pieces, but I’ve thrown in some Jango Reinhardt along with a selection of 70’s – Noughties popular stuff. These sail through them all. The preset equaliser profiles are extensive and very easy to edit (if you feel the need). Sound quality and depth is astonishing. They are very comfortable to wear for extended periods – so comfortable it’s easy to forget that they’re there. Phone conversations seem fine with the mic picking up my voice clearly. Bluetooth connection was ridiculously simple and consistently reliable. Back to the Eq. profiles: my working life was spent in aviation so I have some high tone hearing loss in one ear. The Eq controls allowed me to compensate (somewhat) for that and I’m hearing nuance and intonation through these ‘phones that I haven’t experienced in years. I could not be more thrilled. There are cheaper ones, but I doubt their value compared to these.

    These are an absolute game changer, I have my computer in the front room on a small desk and my wife like to watch soaps all evening, I would rather watch Youtube. I have tried headphones in the past but the sounds from the TV are very distracting. The noise cancelling on these is absolutely spot on, I really don’t notice the telly at all now. There is an option for “Transparent” which actively passes the outside sounds to your ears, “Normal” which is what it says and “Noise cancelling”. The headphones don’t even need to be connected to any device if you just want to enjoy some peace and quiet from the sounds around you. I am a big fan of Anker products, sound bars, power banks etc, and this is up to the same quality ive come to expect from them.

    I have never had noise cancelling headphones before and I was on a budget, but after reading the reviews I thought I’d try these. They’re absolutely brilliant! They’re comfortable, excellent sound quality and easy to use. They’re not entirely noise cancelling- small amounts of sound does leak though, but they take out the majority of background noise and once the music is playing, you can hear nothing else. I have also never used bluetooth headphones, and was pleasantly surprised by how quickly I could set them up and how easy it was too. I am so pleased with these! Super purchase!

    These were an emergency buy when my 5 year old €200 Sony headphones suddenly died, I looked up independent reviews and these headphones got great reviews. I can honestly say they are every bit as good as my old 4 times the price headphones, I did download the app and it’s very easy to use…the headphones are extremely comfortable since they’re over ear , even my multiple ear piercings didn’t get in the way. I was using them ( full volume)on noise cancelling mode while using a very noisy blender and couldn’t hear it so I really cannot fault these budget buy headphones, I will definitely be buying them as Xmas gifts this year for family

    These headphones produce excellent sound quality. They are comfortable to wear and appear to be of a quality construction. They look a lot more expensive than they are.They’re also the first active noise cancelling headphones I’ve had. I’m amazed. When you activate the full setting, you can’t hear a person next to you speak. There’s a half setting and off too, depending on how antisocial you want to be.The headphones are really enhanced with the app, which isn’t something is usually bother with. You can easily change settings, rather than pressing button combos. And unlike a lot of these ‘add on’ apps, it’s actually very good and intuitive.Impressive all round

    Bought these for school and the bus and after a few days of trying them I really recommend, the audio is really good and the way u can customise the eq is great, the noise cancellation is about as you expect it for the price, it does its job well and blocks about 72% of sounds but it’s not that big of a deal, if ur looking for a cheap pair of good headphones these are perfect

    Let’s get this one straight from the off. Don’t mistake these for high end headphones as clearly they can’t quite compete with ones costing 8 times as much.Saying that these punch way way above their weight, to such an extent that it’s genuinely mind boggling that they can do this for the price.Noise cancelling is good without being totally effective. I mowed the lawn with them on without music and it reduced the loud mower to a very mild hum. It’s slightly less effective with random noises such as voices and dogs where it seems to be a bit caught out, but then again so are Bose and Sony on this type of sound. I’d say this is their weakest area but it’s still acceptable.The big plus on these is the app which meant the default bass heavy sound could be dialled back into a much more neutral and faithful representation either through EQ or presets.They are comfortable and adjust well. The controls are easy to master and positive so no guessing required.Slightly disappointed that they couldn’t even throw in a cloth bag for protection but at £40 that may be a bit picky.ForSomeone who loses sunglasses and anything else not tied to me, it wouldn’t be the end of the World if I lost these unlike a £280 pair.

    For the price point of these speakers they are an excellent choice. Probably wouldn’t suit an audiophile simply because there are probably better well known speakers out there that give a much better performance. Having said that, to anyone who just enjoys music or playing games without background noise these are a good choice. The ANC, or active noise cancelling is good and probably cuts out 90% which for most people will suit them and to anyone sitting next to the wearer of the headphones they won’t hear your music so an added bonus. The one thing I did notice is that they do not sound quite have the same deep bass levels as my last pair of headphones. However, I don’t know if this is because I have just changed my Macbook to a new Macbook Air and it does have a new sound system in it so this maybe having an effect on them. You can adjust the sound using the app that comes with it but …. the app is only for Android and iPhones so won’t work on a Mac. The Bluetooth function is excellent, connects first time, every time and they are very comfortable to wear so overall if you are looking for new headphones these are ell worth investing in without breaking the bank.

    Like others, I looked at lots of wireless headphones. I’d set an inital budget of £75 – £100, obviously not expecting top of the range quality and performance. However, after reading numerous reviews, decided that the Anker Soundcore Q20i’s were worth a punt at £50!They did include ANC which after a bit of experimenting actually seems to work really well. You can definitely hear the 3 levels (transparency, ambient, noise cancelling) but not having experienced NC before I can’t actually say how they would compare with premium priced headphones For the type of music / films, etc that I watch, it is certainly good enough!Although plastic construction they are pretty well made. The ear cups are very soft. It doesn’t look like you can replace them so not sure how well they will wear as they will get a lot of usage! Only time will tell!They connected very easily with my devices. Downloading the app is not essential but may be useful if you need to adjust the sound.The only slight gripe I have is that they are a little bulky but that may be the fact that my previous headphones were the on ear type and these fit over the ear. Oh! and I have a small head!! 😉All in all I am very satisfied with the Q20i’s and would recommend them, especially if you are on a tight budget!

    Words can’t describe how much value for money these are.I’m a sucker for Anker stuffs, I have both SoundCore speakers – and they always surprised me with the quality of the sound and build of them so picked these up. And I have not been let down.Fair enough Anker. I would genuinely love to see what they would come up with if they decided to make a more expensive pair, ie over £100, I would 100% buy them. They understand quality and the consumer in their products.
