The Soundcore Space A40 earbuds offer very good overall sound quality and build quality, with a comfortable fit suitable for exercise and equipped with Active Noise Cancelling for better focus in noisy environments. They are stemless, closed earbuds and are in the lower midrange price bracket. Their portability is among their best features, and they accommodate wireless charging for convenience. Music listening is rated as good while calls, gaming, and watching TV are deemed poor, which suggests they are not the best choice for these activities. With AAC and LDAC support, they cater well to high-quality audio streams but may not be optimal for devices without low-latency support. They offer app customization, but mic quality is just fair, so if call clarity is important, you might want to consider other options. Give Feedback

Sound Guys

Sam Smart | May 2023
"The Anker Soundcore Space A40 is an excellent deal if you want affordable noise canceling earbuds with great sound. The baseline frequency response is enjoyable, and the many EQ presets to choose from plus the ability to customize your sound profile makes it good for pretty much anyone. The noise canceling is quite good, and the many ear tips to choose from ensure a good fit for the noise canceling and isolation to do its job."
