Tech Review : Anker’s Soundcore Space One brings high quality for a low price

In the world of headphones, the Anker Soundcore Space One stands out as a perfect blend of superior noise-cancelling technology and high-resolution audio. These over-ear headphones are designed to cater to the discerning audiophile, offering an immersive listening experience while maintaining a general sense of comfort for extended wear.

The headphones also offer exceptional noise-cancelling capabilities and high-resolution audio performance at a low price point of A$149.99, making it easy for anyone to jump in and enjoy. 

Drown Out the Noise

One of the standout features of the Anker Soundcore Space One headphones is their noise-cancelling capability. Equipped with hybrid active noise cancellation (ANC) technology, these headphones effectively block out ambient noise, allowing you to escape into a world of music or your favourite podcast. I was able to test these in the bustling Melbourne CBD in peak hour, on an extremely (and uncomfortable) crowded train and am happy to say that it stood up in these conditions.

The ANC function is adjustable via the Soundcore app on your phone, so you can tailor the level of noise cancellation to your liking. The app also has a wind noise reduction feature, which can be toggled on and off. 

The Anker Soundcore Space One headphones are also great for audiophiles. Boasting support for high-resolution audio formats, including FLAC and DSD, these headphones deliver an audio experience that’s rich, detailed, and authentic.

The 40mm dynamic drivers produce deep bass, crisp mids, and sparkling highs, ensuring every note and nuance is heard with astonishing clarity. If you’re a fan of high-fidelity audio, you’ll appreciate the precision and balance of these headphones. This can also be customised via the SoundCore app. There is a large selection of preset EQs to choose from or you can simply customise your own for those added tweaks. The options are endless and thanks to the smooth and accessible app, easy to adjust. 

Built for Style & Comfort

Comfort is paramount for headphones designed for long listening sessions, and the Anker Soundcore Space One headphones do not disappoint. With plush memory foam ear cushions and an adjustable headband, these headphones can be worn for hours on end without causing discomfort. The ear cups are designed to completely cover your ears, creating a seal that enhances both comfort and noise isolation. The design and headband are sturdy while still being quite bendy and flexible. The sky blue variant we got the chance to check out is stylish and looks fantastic to carry around. 

The Anker Soundcore Space One headphones are loaded with convenient features when it comes to design. They offer button controls for adjusting volume, play/pause and managing calls, allowing for intuitive operation. There is also a button to switch between transparency and noise cancelling mode, which is useful when you are on the go.

The built-in microphone ensures clear voice quality during calls, and the headphones can be used both wired through a 3.5 mm audio jack and wirelessly via Bluetooth for added versatility. The battery life is also impressive, providing up to 40 hours of playback time on a single charge with noise cancelling and up to 50 hours with noise cancelling off. 

Verdict & Value

The Anker Soundcore Space One headphones are a triumph when it comes to noise-cancelling headphones, elevating the listening experience with their high-resolution audio support. These headphones are capable of silencing the chaos of the outside world and delivering music and audio in a way that captivates the senses.

Moreover, their comfort-focused design and decent battery life ensure you can enjoy your favourite content for extended periods without discomfort. The price point is also fantastic for a pair of headphones of this calibre. If you are in the market for an affordable and quality headset, this is the ultimate choice.
