The Sennheiser 450BT offers better sound quality for music with a strong emphasis on midrange and high frequencies, which makes it a good choice for genres like rock or classical; however, for videos or gaming, you might notice a slight audio delay due to latency. On the flip side, the Soundcore Space One, despite not matching the Sennheiser's sound for music, provides a feature called LDAC that supports high-resolution audio, which could be appealing if you prioritize sound quality on compatible devices. It also has a longer battery life, which is convenient for prolonged use, and a lower weight for increased comfort. Both have noise cancellation and a similar price, so your decision will hinge on whether you value sound quality for music or features and comfort for general and extended use. Give Feedback

Sound Guys

Lily Katz | March 2022
"The Sennheiser HD 450BT is a very good pair of headphones for the price, noise canceling is good and sound quality is great—quite rare at this price point. Like any product, this headset isn’t without its faults."

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."
