If you prefer a headphone with better built-in controls, noise isolation, and are planning to use them in environments where you might sweat or come into contact with dust, the JBL Live 670NC would be a better choice. However, if you prioritize headphones with longer battery life, active noise cancelling for quieter air travel, and an app with equalizer customization for personalized sound, consider the Soundcore Space Q45. For listening to music, the Space Q45 might offer a more satisfactory experience, but for calls and meetings, the JBL might be more suitable. Neither are optimal for gaming or TV due to poor scores in those areas. Give Feedback

Sound Guys

Riley Ballantyne | June 2023
"The Anker Soundcore Space Q45 is a great pair of active noise canceling (ANC) headphones, and the $150 USD price tag only sweetens the deal. Unlike many mid-tier wireless headphones, the Q45 microphone system rejects quite a bit of background noise, making this a great work headset too."
