Sound is fantastic.. honestly was not expecting much as these are only 69$ but these blew my mind off .. the bass is awesome.. sound is crisp and clear even at full volume. Never experienced this for under 100$ headphones.
If these were 129-149$ I wouldn’t have complained..these exceeded expectations..
At this price these are no brainer.. go grab yourself a pair !!
This is my first Anker product and I am impressed!!
Kudos to Anker..
PS: this is just a short term review. I will comeback after a week to provide additional feedback.
The con however is a deal breaker for me at this stage. The pair I received struggles to play music with high notes. It's apparent when listening to Hello by Adelle, and you can very clearly hear slight cracking when listening to Murder Song (acoustic) by Aurora. Just listing the specific songs in case someone wants to look into it. Even in cases where the high notes are clear they have a tendency to be overly sharp and uncomfortable to listen to (uncomfortable as in it hurts ever so slightly). I've contacted Anker about this and I'm on the fence about returning it. I don't know if it's specifically an issue with lower end headphones or if it's a defective driver in the ones that I received. Will update the review if something changes.
Anker hasn't done wireless headphones before (to my knowledge), their primary audio offerings thus far being bluetooth speakers and in-ear "earbuds," both with category-leading price to performance and exceptional customer support- but they've clearly taken their time and knocked it out of the park on this one.
The first thing to really consider with this product is just how deeply it undercuts it's competition's price points. Bose, Sony, and JBL will ask $150 or more for even a decent entry level pair. I think that, ironically, the price of the Vortex might turn a lot of people away. Over ear bluetooth headphones just aren't this cheap generally, but don't let it scare you!
These take a similar aesthetic and comfort factor to Beats' Studio series, which is a plus. They feel well made and pillowy comfortable against the ears, even if I would have liked to see the pads a little bigger to be a true "over ear" pair. They fold into an included carrying case with trustworthy-feeling metal hinges, have multiple headband sizing settings, and easy to feel-out controls for volume, power, and pairing on the ear cups.
So, the build is all here. The creature comforts are all here.
But how do they SOUND, dammit? That's all anyone seems to care about. Well, a little disclaimer- I come from the world of wired headphones that need desktop amps to drive, so I had come into these with adjusted expectations out of the gate. A lot of cheaper headphones have very obviously cheap sounding drivers that are easy to notice- giving a sort of "thin" feeling to the sound. The Soundcore Vortex sound great for what they are. What they are is bluetooth, basshead headphones. I would love to see a companion app with a firmware EQ or something, because the bass is really a bit much for my tastes, but anyone listening to top-40 pop and hip hop will love the modern "kick" that these have similar to Beats. I'm happy to report that they don't completely lose all sense of resolution when handling guitar tones, either- a problem that a lot of other bluetooth headphones seem to suffer from. I will be keeping these to use personally when traveling.
I haven't had them long enough to test battery- so that remains to be seen- but Anker is the leader in portable batteries, so I can't imagine that their claimed 20 hours is far off.
These things are great. Anyone complaining about their sound needs to consider who these are marketed to and just how cheap they are for bluetooth headphones. Oh yeah, and to consider that they are BLUETOOTH headphones.
Well done, Anker. Well done.
The Soundcore Vortex showed up in my news feed yesterday and with the $10 off coupon I could not resist the offer. I have had this on my oversized head for few hours and I can really say in terms of comfort this is on par with my QC35 II's. The audio quality is very good in part due to aptX codec support when paired with Android device. The mids and highs are clear with decent amount of low end response, and good bass. I tested exclusive on extreme quality downloads on Spotify. These sound pretty great !! The box comes with all accessories required for travel, 3.5 mm aux cord, micro USB cable and a carrying case.
Now to the not so good parts, as other poster mentioned, this can be paired with only one device at a time. To pair with new device the current device needs to be unpaired. I was also not able to switch out to aptX HD codec. Overall these are pretty good AF, for the price. I will edit the review if any new feedback comes up.
Edit - Docking one star since aptX HD codec is not supported, as mentioned in their listing. Just to clarify aptX codec works just fine, just not the aptX HD. One other minor inconvenience is that the power button turns on, if you press the hard case ever so slightly from the outside. Hoping it does not drain the battery when I throw it in my travel bag.
