Anker Soundcore Life Q20 Noise Cancelling Headphones Review

Anker Soundcore Life Q20 Review

The Anker Soundcore Life Q20 headphones are a very good starting pair of headphones that include good battery life, sound quality and noise cancellation, end it also has very well physical controls but noise cancellation is semi average. And they don’t compare with the Bose and Sony headphones.


  • Good battery life
  • Comfortable on ears
  • Value for money
  • Easy to use
  • Lightweight
  • Active noise-cancellation


  • Wired audio sounds are not good.
  • Bass mode overdose the bass
  • ANC is there but not as solid as others


When it comes down to the build of the Anker Soundcore life Q20 and the materials use and the all in all finish of them the Sony an Bose Noise Cancelling headphones still lead by a long shot. But for the price point that the Anker headphones come in it is quite understandable. They don’t have a complicated design they are quite plain simple and straightforward. They only come in one color which is black but they have a slight metallic dark blue or gray undertone. They are made out of plastic so that makes them very light and comfortable for long-term listening but they do have a slight cheap feel to them. And the buttons have to be pushed hardly in order to work. The ear cups rotatable and they do fold which is easy for storage and for travel. They don’t come with a protective case but they do come with and include pouch which you can use to protect them from scratches in your bag. But all in all when it comes to the comfort of the headphones they are quite light weights and the plastic build and the plush leather your cups and headband said quite well on the head. You can wear these headphones for a long period of time without it causing you headaches and they were tried on with glasses and that to didn’t cause any fatigue. On each ear cup you have buttons that are very large and easy to reach. On the left your cup you have the power button and the pairing one, and the active noise cancellation button as well. On the right ear cup you have the media play bag buttons that have a multifunction button that activates the voice assistant and the bass up this is a word that Ankers uses for the bass boost function. You can charge them with a micro USB instead of the common USB-C port which is a downside to these headphones. They also have a 3.5 mm analog jack that you can use the headphones and wire mold if you run out of battery. The active noise cancellation isn’t the best they are able to block out most of the low-volume backer noises but it does not keep up with the low bass or high frequencies. These headphone also support Bluetooth 5.0 and it doesn’t have an issue with audio dropouts. they were even tested by walking around an empty apartment without the single dropping off or cutting out even if there are many walls in between the headphones and the connected device.


They have a fair enough lasting battery life that is rated to last up to 30 hours with active noise cancellation and up to 60 hours without active noise cancellation. And when tested they had no problem of lasting the exact 30 hours with the active noise cancellation. Even if you do run out of battery with a five minute quick charge you can get up to four hours of music playback. But did you have a downside and that is that the active noise cancellation is fairly OK but not as good as its other competitors in this department.

AUDIO QUALITY of Anker Soundcore life Q20

The Anker Soundcore life Q20 headphones have a decent enough sound quality to them and noise noise cancellation is fair. But it’s not that special and they don’t have a wow factor. There isn’t much detail to the sounds and the total balance is definitely more warmer and they do emphasize the bass. This makes listening to music or anything on his headphones for a longer period of time easy and the sound is non-fatiguing. But for the people that want detail when listening to music or a podcast will be disappointed. This brand produces his headphones doesn’t offer enough that can tune the EQ to your personal liking so you only get the out-of-the-box tuning that these headphones have to offer. But they do you come with a bass up feature that can boost the bus even more but it’s recommended that you don’t use it because it ruins the sound quality. The bus is already unclear and the bass up just causes it to sound worse.


All in all if you want just a normal pair of headphones that are very inexpensive and affordable that have some noise cancellation and are just for your casual daily use than Anker Soundcore life Q20 are the perfect fit. You can also get them as a present for a friend if you’re on a budget. They put up a good enough front and they have solid sounding to them for their price point. They have extremely long lasting battery life and they are very comfortable to wear for longer periods of times and if you wear glasses they won’t cause any pressure. But you should definitely not expect some high-end noise cancellation or high and sound quality. If you’re looking to buy more advanced headphones then you should check on Sony’s website or Bose’s website.
