When I saw this headphone I turned up my nose. As an ex-radio person, producer and recording engineer I know headphones like the back of my hand, my knowledge of them is at the expert level. I own literally a closet shelf full of them at prices ranging into the thousands. The last thing I want or need is another pair. But I was drawn in by the apparent light weight of these and the fact that they use Bluetooth 5.0 for hopefully fewer dropouts and a less compressed sound. Some of the other claims seemed to be more marketing fluff than reality especially at the price.
LIGHT WEIGHT OR LIGHTWEIGHTS
Let’s face it; a good pair of headphones can get very heavy and tiresome to wear. At only 10 ounces (as measured by me) these promise to be more comfortable but that usually comes at the expense of being made of cheap plastic that falls apart after a few months.
REAL BASS OR A NICE EFFECT
Headphones are governed by the laws of science, the larger the transducer and the more powerful the driver the better it can reproduce ultra low frequencies. Anker touts a spinoff of what Bose and other companies have done for years, to fool the ears into thinking they are hearing certain frequencies for what I call the wow effect. And that’s what it is, for a few minutes you are blown away by the most awesome sound you’ve ever heard. Then it all starts to tire your ears and your brain and you find you are not really listening to music but rather a sound effect. I subjected these to the same standard test that I have used since the days I worked with Henry Kloss and the folks at Shure. My testing isn’t all that scientific, it’s just based on real life reproduction of sound and user listenability.
CONDITIONS OF COMPARISON
Evaluating headphones is not an easy task. There will be the inevitable reviews that go overboard gushing about how spectacular these are because they were given a sample to try. And at the opposite end those who set the bar too high by comparing them to audiophile models costing many times more. What we have here are neither, at under forty bucks they are an all plastic mass produced product that rises only slightly above the toy level. So let’s be fair and realistic, I’m going to stick to telling you what you get for forty bucks and steer far away from idealizing them or complaining that they aren’t as good as my studio reference quality cans.
I have nothing against plastic and let’s face it, even Ferraris are made with a lot of plastic these days. Some of the best headphones available are made with manmade synthetic materials. Unfortunately these are made from a relatively low grade of plastic that adversely affects the sound quality. In a way its like how certain plastics affect the taste of food and beverages. To use the comparison again it’s what I would call a toylike quality. On the plus side the hinges are made of metal.
For the most part Anker has done a good job designing the control panel on these phones. Everything is grouped at the bottom of the right earpiece and the buttons have a tactile touch to them plus the practice of having buttons perform multiple functions is kept to an absolute minimum. There is a power switch that also sets up the Bluetooth pairing. It also controls the use of these phones as a smartphone headset but I won’t talk about that usage, I think there are far better smartphone headsets to consider than this thing. The next button is a volume rocker that’s reasonably easy to operate and finally the bass boost button. Nearby are a USB-C charging port and a standard stereo mini audio port for wired operation. Next to those is a small LED status light.
The choice of a USB-C port is neither a major plus or a minus but its potential is minimized by the fact that they don’t include a power supply charger. They do include a short stereo audio cable and for the first time ever it prompts me to describe an item as vapid. The cable is flimsy, too short and doesn’t attach very securely. When you plug it in it disables all onboard electronics so the headphone drivers are being powered solely by your device’s amplifier, hence the maximum volume level is relatively weak. By disabling the electronics you lose one of the headphone’s major selling points, the bass boost system. You will also have to resort to only using the volume controls on your smartphone or other device.
BEST AND WORST
Most products have at least one feature to love but on the downside one you wish they had put more thought into. With this product the kudos go to printing the Left and Right designations boldly inside each earcup. So many others these days have a tiny molded in designator or even none at all. It’s so nice to be able to pick them up, even in near darkness, and know which ear is which. The negative side of the coin is the loud and somewhat grating voice that comes through the earpieces when you turn the bass boost on and off (it’s also there for a few other functions as well). The voice is so annoying that having it is almost a complete dealbreaker for me. Not counted against them but worth noting is that the instruction sheet defies any form of comprehension. Come on Anker, you’re a big company now, you can afford to have someone create a better user experience with your instruction manuals.
BASS BOOST AND OVERALL SOUND QUALITY
Here’s a reality check, these are pretty ordinary forty buck headphones. Their major marketing highlight is that bass boost button they call BassUp. I’m going to combine talking about that with my overall opinion of the sound quality of these phones because the two things are intertwined. Here are a few things you should know:
1. Unlike other attempts to wow the user with extended bass these don’t just attenuate the low frequencies but rather they work in real time at selective frequencies to kick up some of them without making everything sound deeper.
2. Yes it does make a difference, but not one that changes the timbre of everything you hear. You might actually go a few seconds or even minutes before you suddenly hear certain frequencies being boosted.
3. Like so many schemes to tweak our listening experience this one gets tiring over time and once the wow factor sizzle has settled down many people may find the effect overbearing.
4. Because of fairly large diaphragms and I assume larger drivers these headphones deliver better than average bass all by themselves without the artificial boost.
5. Unfortunately that plasticky sound I mentioned seems to be worse with the bass booster turned on.
Whether because of or in spite of being all plastic these are some of the most comfortable headphones I’ve worn in a while. The cups fit well and totally encapsulate both ears but there is no excessive pressure. Outside sounds are effectively blocked out and the sweet spot is positioned right over the ear canal. The headband is soft and adjustable and there’s nothing to pinch or tangle with your hair. They fold and look like they can survive travel, but unfortunately no case or travel bag is included.
BLUETOOTH COMPRESSION AND CUTOUT
Using Bluetooth 5.0 technology these are an improvement over older technologies. They don’t sound as compressed but don’t expect that they will have the expansive sound stage of a good pair of wired cans, it’s simply not possible yet if you have your heart set on Bluetooth. They are listenable but if you are really into your music you will get frustrated by the occasional cutouts. That rules out stage and studio monitoring applications.
YES OR NO
If your headphone budget limits you to under fifty bucks I can’t think of too many better choices as long as you realize that you will get what you pay for. While Anker has outgrown their early days of legendary customer service I can still recommend that, given the choice when buying low end Chinese products it’s still better to go with a known established brand with a U.S. presence. These aren’t great headphones but neither are they priced like them. I would be wary of any gushing recommendations, everybody hears things differently and it’s hard to separate honest reviews from those with special interests. The only way you will know for sure is to try them on your own ears. Keep them if they sound good to you and if not move on to something else.
[NOTE] For some unexplained reason at the time I got these Anker says that they not currently compatible with the iPhone 11 series, but they advise this model is being upgraded at some point.
The sound quality is excellent, especially for $40 headphones. The EQ sounds pretty balanced and doesn't seem to color any tones. The bass is punchy even without using the "bass-up" button. With the boost on though it does rattle the windows in your head. I think it's only useful for EDM or music that is overtly bassy as it tends to muddy more musical genres.
I have not tested the battery performance yet, but I don't see a reason to doubt it. They fold up nicely for stowage though a soft-sided case would be nice.
Personally, my most important criteria was the USB-C connector. My Liberty 2 ear buds, my phone and tablet all have a Type-C connectors. I did not find anything else in this range for over-ears with USB-C and not from a random China brand of unknown quality. Even the other Anker headphones use Micro-USB so I hope they are updating them soon.
Very pleased overall and would definitely recommend to anyone.
1. Durable enough to last
2. Provided excellent sound quality
4. Had an aux cord input
The Anker Soundcore Life Q10s fit these criteria, and exceeded my expectations. The connection to Bluetooth on my devices was easy. The sound quality is superb, clear and crisp. The headphones have booming bass, which is exactly how I like it. I love the fact that they have a metal headband, instead of the plastic ones my previous pairs of headphones had. The plastic headbands on my old headphones were the main reason they broke on me. But, with the metal headband on the Anker Soundcore Life Q10, I shouldn't have that problem at all, and should be enjoying these for a long time to come.
in conclusion, for the best headphones I have ever purchased so far, I turned to a brand that has provided me with the best in phone chargers, aux cords, Bluetooth speakers, and customer service: Anker! If anyone from Anker is reading this: You guys knocked it out of the park with these headphones; they were worth every penny! I recommend these to anyone looking for quality headphones!

# battery and tech
The battery on these is a monster!, I've only had to charge it twice so far and I'm still a way of my third charge.
Sound leakage is very low at medium-loud and still fairly low at loud volumes so great for commuting. The audio clarity is very good so tbh you can listen to things at lower volumes and it still feels loud.
These do not have active noise cancelling but the fit is good and I find I'm not really to disturbed by the outside world even if I can still hear it.
Have been very impressed with the overal quality and finish. Good quality plastics, robust metal components and solid clucky feel to the adjustment. Buttons are clicky but don't feel cheap.
Folding mechanism is smooth and makes them to a pretty good travel size. But why no case or even just a cloth bag Anker?
Only big negetive is that the cups can't fold flat when worn around the neck so poke your chin if you have to slide them off for abit.
The headphones came with a 3.5m jack cable and a USBC cable. Being Anker they are pretty good quality. Although I was disappointed that Anker don't supply their corded or power line quality cables. I know these are only £40, but no case and basic cables from a company that have made their name from such things is abit of an anti climax.
The cup pads are squishy enough to be comfortable without leaving the plastic touching your head.
The faux leather used is quite good quality compared to cheap headphones but can still get a little warm feeling after a while of wearing.
Cups also rotate to fit head which is nice.
Head band is padded pretty well but not as 'invisible' feeling as some I have worn.
Over all pretty good.
As a lot of people have noted, the bass on these is a bit much. Overall the the sound clarity is fantastic for this price range and the Bluetooth 5 connection is really stable.
The ability to connect 2 devices is actually really cool too.
So with the bass issue...it's way too much even on normal mode. I found though that when plugged into my laptop using the aux cable it wasn't so bad, so maybe this is being boosted artificially only when using Bluetooth? Anyway I found by turning my android phones built in equaliser to [treble+2/bass-2] this seemed to give me a more comfortable listening experience and makes the bass boost mode usable for those times you absolutely have to slap on some D&B!
Hope this helps some one, overall I'm pretty happy despite having to compensate for the bass.
Außerdem ein echt guter Service seitens Anker. Sicherlich wurde dieser in der Hoffnung erbracht, dass ich die Bewertung verbessere - aber auch das ist ja nicht selbstverständlich.
Am Tragecomfort hat sich leider nur wenig geändert. Ich habe das Gefühl, dass das Polster am Kopfbügel mit der Zeit evtl. ein bisschen weicher geworden ist und meine Ohren sich an den Druck etwas gewöhnt haben. Dennoch wird längeres Tragen oft unangenehm und macht mindestens eine aktive Veränderung der Position, in der die Kopfhörer auf dem Kopf sitzen, nötig. Deshalb nach wie vor keine 5 Sterne.
--- Klangqualität ---
- Am Handy (Pocophone F1) über Bluetooth: Hier geht der Sound meines Empfindens klar und wirkt insgesamt ausgewogen. Meine kabelgebundenen JBL Tune500 (aktuell ca. 29€ auf Amazon) gewinnen allerdings den direkten Vergleich, da der Sound hier noch etwas klarer und "differenzierter" wirkt. Der BassUp-Modus ist eine nette Idee, wobei ich den Bass bereits ohne diesen ausreichend präsent finde und es mit "Boost" eher unausgewogen/überladen wirkt. Aber das ist wahrscheinlich Geschmackssache und letztlich kann das ja jede*r so handhaben, wie es ihr*ihm am besten gefällt. Es ist ein relativ dezentes Grundrauschen bei der aktiven Audio-Übertragung feststellbar, was allerdings wohl normal für die meisten (alle?) Bluetooth-Kopfhörer ist. Insbesondere in dieser Preisklasse. (4/5)
- Am Handy per Kabel: Hier lässt die Klangqualität spürbar nach. Ich vermute, dass die Kopfhörer am Handy einfach zu wenig Saft per Klinke kriegen, habe aber nicht viel Ahnung von der Technik, weiß also nicht ob diese These plausibel ist. Im Ergebnis ist auf diesem Weg jedenfalls nicht der gewünschte Hörgenuss zu erreichen. Auch der BassUp-Modus ist per Kabel nicht aktivierbar. Ursprünglich: (2/5) // nach Update (siehe oben): (4/5)
- Am PC per Bluetooth: Klingt bei mir eher schwach, allerdings vermute ich, dass daran eher der Bluetooth-Adapter Schuld ist. Prinzipiell sollte sich hier die gleiche Klangqualität wie am Handy erreichen lassen. Auch hier bleibt das Grundrauschen wahrnehmbar, insbesondere bei leiserer Audiowiedergabe. (keine Bewertung)
- Am PC per Kabel: Deutlich besser als mit Kabel am Handy. Im direkten Vergleich mit meinen Superlux HD681 EVO (aktuell ab 32,49€ über Amazon erhältlich) können sie sich aber wieder nicht durchsetzen. Die Superlux klingen deutlich satter und ausgewogener. (4/5)
- Insgesamt: 3,5/5
--- Tragekomfort ---
Die Ohren werden bei mir komplett umschlossen, die Ohr-Polsterung ist angenehm, könnte aber etwas dicker sein. Die Ohren berühren das Innere der Köpfhörer und da dieses gar nicht gepolstert ist (es gibt nur eine dünne Lage Stoff als Abgrenzung zur "Technik"), kann das bei längerem Tragen unanganehm werden, auch wenn kein starker Druck auf die Ohren ausgeübt wird. Ich persönlich merke auf jeden Fall auch nach dem Absetzen noch deutlich an den Rändern meiner Ohren, dass ich sie getragen habe.
Die Polsterung am Kopfbügel ist relativ fest. In Kombination mit dem doch recht hohen Gewicht kann es bei längerem Tragen unangenehm an der Kopfhaut werden, so dass man schließlich die Position der Kopfhörer ein bisschen ändern muss, damit nicht permanent die gleiche Stelle belastet wird. Das "federleicht" in der Produktbeschreibung ist in der Hinsicht für mich recht fragwürdig. Mit ca. 288g wiegen die Kopfhörer etwa 20g mehr als die Superlux HD681 EVO und etwa das Doppelte der JBL Tune500 (inkl. Kabel). (2/5)
--- Bedienung ---
- Bluetooth-Betrieb: Die Verbindung zu Handy und PC ließ sich komplett problemlos herstellen und wirkt auch stabil / störungsfrei. Ist die Verbindung hergestellt, lassen sich die 4 Buttons recht intuitiv nutzen: Der On/Off-Button schaltet die Kopfhörer bei längerem Druck aus, bei einfachem kurzen Druck pausiert er den laufenden Track und startet ihn bei erneutem Druck wieder, bei zweifachem kurzen Druck wird der Akku-Status angesagt. Anrufe lassen sich auch über diesen Button annehmen und beenden. Die +/- Buttons regulieren bei kurzem Druck die Lautstärke und lassen bei längerem Druck die Tracks wechseln. Der BassUp-Button schaltet den BassUp-Betrieb an oder aus, der aktuelle Status wird dann angesagt. (5/5)
- Kabel-Betrieb: Sämtliche Buttons sind komplett ohne Funktion. Wie bereits erwähnt, fällt hier auch der BassUp-Modus weg. (1/5)
- Insgesamt: 2,5/5
--- Akku-Laufzeit ---
- Ich habe sie bisher nicht ausreichend lange getestet, um einzuschätzen, ob die versprochenen 60 Stunden Wiedergabedauer tatsächlich eingehalten werden. Die bisherige Entwicklung der Akkustands-Anzeige legt allerdings nahe, dass in dem Punkt nicht übertrieben wurde. (5/5)
--- Kompaktheit ---
Die Ohrmuscheln lassen sich einklappen, damit werden die Kopfhörer schon ein gutes Stück kompakter. Wirklich platzsparend lassen sie sich allerdings nicht verstauen, da sie halt einfach entsprechend groß sind. Im Rahmen der gegebenen Grundlage (es sind halt Over-Ears) ist es aber auf jeden Fall gut gelöst. (4/5)
--- Ästhetik ---
Ist natürlich immer Geschmacksfrage. Mir gefallen sie insgesamt gut. Sind schon recht groß, aber sie wirken für unterwegs noch nicht überdimensioniert. (keine Bewertung)
--- Preis/Leistungs-Fazit ---
Ich habe sie für 37,50€ bekommen ("Neuheiten"-Rabatt) und für diesen Preis sind sie als "Allrounder" prinzipiell in Ordnung. Wie in der Rezension zu lesen, muss man dabei aber einige Abstriche hinnehmen. Wäre das der reguläre Preis, würde ich wahrscheinlich 4 Sterne vergeben, da ich aber davon ausgehe, dass der Rabatt nicht dauerhaft gewährt wird und somit vom regulären Preis (50€) ausgehe, halte ich 3 Sterne für angebracht.
Ich bin mir selbst noch nicht sicher, ob ich mich mit ihnen zufrieden gebe, tendiere aber dazu, mich doch noch nach einer besseren Alternative umzuschauen, die bei mindestens genau so guter Klangqualität einen höheren Tragekonfort bietet.
However, I do a lot of walking with my dogs, and having tried and lost many in ear pods I thought I would buy a cheap set of headphones that I could afford to fail in heavy rain.
I bought these as I prefer hi res music, I have generally had positive experiences with Anker and of course, the price is right.
First, the good. The headphones do not look or feel cheap. They seem well built and sturdy and the buttons are responsive and well placed.
Now the bad. The bass is ridiculously over bearing. God knows who will ever have the bass boost on as on normal it's way too much. However, for the price I could probably even live with this. After 2 days of near continuous playing, there is an issue that noone has identified yet. Every couple of tracks, there is a noticeable skip in the sound that rapidly becomes very irritating. Thinking it may just be a bad download or dodgy rip, I persevered. However, it has happened in everything I have listened to. I listened to a couple of the same albums to see if there was an issue with my player or music I swapped back to my Sony's. Nothing, everything played flawlessly. Really disappointed as I have previously stated I really like Anker products. I'm sure these issues could be sorted with a firmware update and these headphones would then be outstanding. But there is no way to connect to the Anker app. Such a shame as they could have been awesome!
As already commented, the bass "up" can at times be too much but a nice addition..
Definitely loud "leakage" at 40+% so no watching of "risqué" videos as will give it away..
Sounds is OK but not much different from my old cheap RIWBOX but double the price!!! As I have very electic taste in music I usually use two tracks that are bass-oriented (Hey bulldog by the Beatles and Ring the alarm by Tenor saw) to test out headphones and saw no real difference except the RIWBOX was slightly "tinny" but much louder in volume..
So I conclusion, 6/10 overal; maybe should of gone for the Q20!
I don't like using these in Bluetooth mode, it baffles me as to why Anker opted to go the over the top bass route. In "normal" mode they are way to bassy and do not represent in any way what the original artist intended with their music. I make music myself and know exactly how it should sound, these things in Bluetooth mode ruin the sound with excessive bass. Then if you turn on bass mode they are even more absurd and rattle your ears. So fine, include a bass boost mode for people who like that, but normal mode should not have any bass boosting at all!
Now using these wired is totally different! The sound is very close to reference sound, my music sounds almost exactly as I intended it. Bass, mid and high ranges are represented beautifully, giving lots of detail and depth to the sound. Bass is really good, deep, smooth and more importantly it is not exaggerated at all.
The headphones are comfortable. So many headphones now boast noise cancelling features which are generally terrible. These headphones are an example of why that is not necessary. These passively block out noise through a good design, surrounding my ears, without any pressure being applied. I can enjoy my music even at lower volumes and not be distracted by traffic as I walk around since very little noise leaks into the sound space of the headphones. So don't be put off these headphones just because they don't have noise cancelling, trust me I have tried many noise cancelling headphones, all have the same problem of sounding terrible with noise cancelling enabled.
Wired these headphones have shown they can produce beautiful, detailed sound when used with my Sony A55 Walkman, my Hi-res music is represented beautifully with these on wire. Bluetooth though, I hate it. I don't understand why Anker opted to make Bluetooth so over the top Bassy, due to that I'll just be using these on wire to enjoy my music as it was intended.
So yeah quite bassy, let's move on, did I mention they are bassy as hell,oh ok. Moving on......
Sound quality is rather excellent for the price it isn't nuanced in terms of absolute hd sound,but it is very clear under normal non bass up conditions highs are crisp and not shrill, and miss are slightly raised to clamber over that bass, but nothing too hurtful and still a very pleasant sound signature. Obviously with bass up on, it can start to slightly overlay the other frequencies but it would be an impossible engineering feat not to infringe given how strong that is.
Comfort wise, hmmm I had them on first 2 hours straight and I had to move the headband as it was starting to dig in, it is is only a rubber band with soft material inside then a metal headband as the surround, and because of the weight of these it can tend to annoy after a while, these are heavy headphones, the drivers must be made of thors hammer type material, the size and weight really dont make sense to me. The earcups swivel to a certain degree so as to achieve a really good seal on your noggin.
Control in the right cup are great, up down volume, bass up and on button in close ish proximity, it has a mic for calls which is passable, but grainy but what headphone without a boom mic isn't. USB type c charging is a god send, given the q20s have micro usb this is a really bonus. The battery is almost class leading, I can only think of the edifier 830bt's that last longer than 60 hours. 5 minute charge for 5 hours of playback, that beats Sony's xm3000's the battery is incredible in this and any price range.
Passive noice cancellation is fairly standard it probably does about 60 percent of ambient noise loss at a pure guess. Aesthetically not my cup of tea, they do look a tad childish in my view, with the red accents but weirdly when you put them on that hides the lion share of the red and you have the cool dark grey finish, I guess design is subjective and you guys may love their looks.
Overall I give them a strong 8/10
Enjoy and enjoy the bass safely?
I was genuinely impressed by the battery life, I use it for commuting and lunchtime listening, so about 90 mins a day and it was around 2 weeks before I got a low battery warning from a full charge. USB-C charging port so easy to plug in and no faffing with extra cables for me
Comfort is good - I have large ears and occasionally notice the cups feeling a little small but most of the time I don't have any cause to think about it. Build quality feels good and instils confidence with regards their longevity
In summary, a great value package - the sound is good enough for the money, comfort is good and battery life is excellent
I may keep them for my daughter or another use but I'm going to try the Q20 as tge bass on these is too much for everyday listening and I'll probably benefit more from the ANC of the Q20s.
I'm vaguely expecting the Q20s to suffer the same Bluetooth mouse issue but we'll see.
Finally, it seems the Q10 is now a discontinued model, there's no mention of it as a product on the Anker site - they are only pushing the Q20. Fundamental problems maybe and Anker using amazon to shift old stock with a voucher...
UPDATE - the Q20 version does not suffer the same Bluetooth mouse issue so that's good. The sound is a bit less punchy but better for everyday listening with the ANC which works for low frequencies only.
They have proved comfortable to wear for a few hours at a time.
For the price I would highly recommend these.
