If you travel frequently, the Soundcore Space One with superior noise isolation and an excellent air travel score may serve you well for long flights. However, if you prioritize sound quality for music and books or podcasts, the JBL Live 670NC would be the better option, despite its lower performance for gaming and video. Both have active noise cancelling, but if you prefer over-ear comfort, the Soundcore might be more to your liking, whereas the JBL is an on-ear model and more portable with a foldable design. Bear in mind, the JBL has a longer battery life, which could be crucial for extended use without needing to recharge. Give Feedback

PC Magazine

Tim Gideon | September 2023
"The Anker Soundcore Space One noise-cancelling headphones are stylish, comfortable, and affordable. They offer better active noise cancellation than we expect for the price, and their sculpted audio impresses thanks to the adjustable EQ and support for the hi-res LDAC codec. Overall, they’re an excellent value and well worth your attention if you're on a budget."
