You could pay more than $34 for great-sounding over-the-ear headphones — but why?
Anker’s crushing it in the audio department. Late last year, I found a lot to love in the company’s new true-wireless Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro. And today I’m here to gush over the Soundcore Life Q10, an over-the-ear wireless headphone that just shouldn’t sound this good for $29.99. That’s $5 below the last time I raved about it.
First things first: The Q10 is a gorgeous set of headphones. Mixing black and red, it looks like a much pricier product — and feels like one, too, with a surprisingly sturdy design and comfy earcups that block a goodly amount of outside noise. The headphones fold (on metal hinges, no less) for easier storage and transport, though unfortunately Anker doesn’t provide a carrying case — my only real complaint.
Anker promises a whopping 60 hours of playtime (something I wasn’t able to test), and up to five hours with just five minutes of charging. That charging takes place via USB-C, though you’ll have to BYO AC adapter if you don’t have a sufficiently powered USB port.
