    Pros: -The sound quality is hard to beat. They honestly match up to high-end Sonys.
    -New app connectivity and customizable equalizer.
    -Battery life is absurdly long. 60 hours will last you like, a solid month with light use.
    -Comfort is really good.
    -Noise cancellation is absolutely fantastic, with BT connection and 3.5 WIRED! Cons: -Noise cancellation when wired does not function properly. Audio is lowered over 75%. – THIS FEATURE HAS BEEN PATCHED AND FIXED
    -No low latency codecs for BT connection. Massive lag with any gaming.
    -May experience some faulty build quality.
    -Was just shipped in a bag, was severe damage to the box. Overall Review: Updated review: 12-9-20
    5 STARS.
    Ankers customer service is unparalleled. They reached out to me to discuss my problems with this headset, as reviewed below. They worked with me and have delivered a giant fix via a firmware update. Anker has officially patched my number one problem with the headset, and now the ANC works when wired, and works very well.

    You can now enjoy those story heavy single player games and intense movie watching while wired, WITH Active Noise Cancellation, high volumes with a great custom sound profiles and tremendous bass response, NO LAG what so ever (as it’s wired) and best of all, NO distortion what so ever. This is the huge problem that plagued the prior model, the Q20’s, and now this is the nearly perfect headset, regardless of price. The microphone is still a problem for some people, but that should not be a main reason to buy this headset anyway.
    To make this set even better, all it would need is a low latency codec implemented. Perhaps this could be addressed through a future patch as well? That would mean they could be used wirelessly, (with a bluetooth transmitter) for ANY gaming and movies without lag. As they are now, there is severe lag in those use cases, but that’s the point of a wired connection currently.
    The value of this set is now beyond even the big boys like Sony and Bose, who will charge you 200-300 dollars, for nearly the same performance found here with the Q30’s.
    Original Review:
    The main reason I bought these was for Ankers superior noise cancellation. The Q20’s impressed me so much, that I’m on board for the foreseeable future. The main flaw in these, is that when wired via the 3.5 AUX cable (for the most minimum latency) Noise cancellation cuts ALL sound by at least 75%. The highest volume with ANC on, is FAR too low for any enjoyment. This set simply doesn’t function correctly when wired. Anker has to understand that this is still such an important feature! The simple operating buttons do not work, such as volume up and down, the ANC limits volume over 25% and of course the mic does not work at all when wired. Now, hopefully there is a way to patch these headphones via firmware update to at LEAST have a proper, higher volume choice when wired WITH Noise cancellation activated. And I certainly hope they can avoid the ANC problems of the Q20, which was extreme distortion at high and low level sounds when 3.5 wired. A part of me thinks they haven’t even tried to fix this, and just drastically lowered the default volume to avoid the distortion that plagued the Q20s? Other cheaper noise cancelling headphones accomplish noise cancellation with 3.5 wired perfectly! Even sets with a push button instead of a switch. Why can’t Anker get this right?
    These do not have any low latency codecs. Just the basic 5.0 Bluetooth connection, which is fantastic for music listeners as latency does not matter in that situation, but bad for stronger connectivity, high quality/4K video/movie watching and most importantly, gaming. Apt-X of any sort would make a world of difference in connecting to certain devices and make the value of this headset skyrocket. Now, this doesn’t make or break the set, the connectivity is still really GOOD. So this isn’t a huge problem for many people.
    The design of the headset is great. The look, button layout and weight are all proficient. The buttons feel natural once you figure out where everything is. It’s easy to get used to. Build quality on my unit is a mixed bag. So compared to the Q20’s the ear cups are larger, a bit thinner and slightly less comfortable. The overall construction is a bit creaky, the plastic finish isn’t ideal, as it attracts fingerprints and skin oil. The passive noise isolation (the general hug of the earcups) is weaker than that of the Q20’s.
    The sound quality is fantastic. The sound quality beats the Q20’s by a fair margin, and the customizable options through the app, are a welcome addition. The Q20 models only feature a “bass up” button function, which honestly just muddies the sound, and makes it a bit too boomy. The neutral sound of the Q20’s was impressive for the price, but now a fine-tuned Q30 is so much better! Clarity, lows and highs are all better and less distorted than the Q20’s at higher volumes. With the Q30s you can pump the bass up and literally make the ear cups rumble your brain (to the point that it made me dizzy!) and it is STILL a clearer sound profile than the Q20’s “bass up” function! That really told me everything I needed to know about the purity of sound in this set. Pick a preset, and adjust the equalizer to your liking. My personal favorite is “classical” with some minor adjustments. You can have many “custom” profiles and swap between them on the fly to really determine the best sound profile for you. Simply wonderful.
    The battery life, as everyone has noted, is fantastic. No qualms there at all. 60 hours… is ridiculous! In a good way!

    Overall Review: Great for the price, only real issue I had is if you connect it to more than one Bluetooth at a time, it can forget the volume and either be very loud or very quiet

  3. Anonymous

    Pros: – Easy bluetooth pairing to PC & media player
    – Controls are easy to operate, even in the dark
    – Noise-cancelling function seems good
    – Comfortable to wear Cons: – Need to use App in order to adjust the equalizer Overall Review: I would recommend this product because it is easy to set up and is not expensive. No issues.

  4. BTGbullseye

    Pros: ANC
    Bluetooth 5
    3.5mm AUX jack
    Physical buttons for controls!!! (I loathe touch-only interfaces)
    Extremely good battery life Cons: Plastic for the right side where it connects with the metal headband was defective, and broke twice. (I fixed once with some epoxy, but need to do it again) It’s entirely possible that the damage was caused by my method of pulling it off my left ear so I can listen to someone talk while still getting music/games in my right ear.
    No low-latency wireless codecs, which means you have to go wired if you want to game, but since ANC still works with wired, it’s not a big issue. Do have to have a seperate mic when wired though. (I really wish it was a 4-pole plug so I could use the integrated mics, since those are quite decent quality) Overall Review: The sound quality, ANC, physical controls, and battery life are all competitive with much higher price headsets from other manufacturers. I have convinced several people to look for and buy Soundcore and Anker products by demoing them these headphones, my pair of Soundcore 3 speakers, and an Anker charger/battery bank.
    EDIT: Fixed the damaged plastic problems by using a piece of black canvas-like fabric as a middle layer between clear epoxy layers. Epoxy, then before it set I applied the fabric, waited for it to mostly set, then coated/soaked the the fabric with fresh epoxy. Strength is almost comparable to fiberglass, but is lighter and more flexible. (would be cool if Soundcore had fiber reinforced plastics on the higher-end products)

  5. Ben G.

    Pros: I’ve had these headphones for about 6 months and they’ve been great. Excellent sound quality with options to adjust. I’ve never had any issues with battery life. I use these headphones to watch tv without disturbing my family. I’ll routinely watch multiple movies over a week or longer and still have never run low on battery. The noise cancellation is good. Cons: The headphones don’t grab my head as much as I’d like. On the flip side, they’re very comfortable and seem to be pretty sturdy. Overall Review: Great product for the money. You may not be blown away by any specific features of these headphones, but when you consider the whole package, you won’t be disappointed.

  6. Nathan H.

    Pros: Good sound canceling, I’m in a noisy basement and sometimes the noise canceling makes it spookily quiet.
    Dual connection works well. Can listen to audio on my computer, and when my phone rings, the headset switches over to handle the call. Cons: Needs more audio feedback when performing actions. Power on, disconnecting, pairing, power off, etc… Overall Review: Nice comfortable headset with quality noise canceling and dual Bluetooth connections.
    The pass-through/transparent feature is neat (hold hand to right ear to pause noise cancelling) , but it takes one second to register, and you will have to ask people to repeat themselves anyway.

  7. Zachary C.

    Pros: Great bass, great low-end and mid-range, all instruments and voices are distinctive. The noise cancelling options are good. Cons: The pair I got randomly lose sound in one ear. I’m requesting replacements instead of credit. Overall Review: If you’ve got the need and the money these are top notch.

    Pros: Unbelievable sound, great noise cancelling, actually the first headphones I’ve used that really cancelled all outside noise. Comfortable, good and easy Bluetooth or NFC or line connection. Cons: None so far Overall Review: I’ve listened to beats, sony (which I had a set for 15 years and they still work), bose, and these Anker Soundcore, which id never heard of until I accidentally watched a utube video of a very credible guy recommending them, sound better than all of them from the bass all the way up to the treble,full range, and I am glad i listened to the guy on utube.
