The Soundcore Space One headphones are a budget-friendly option with a closed-back, over-ear design, offering both wireless and wired connectivity. They deliver good overall sound quality, a soundstage that earns good remarks, and very good noise isolation, particularly suited for air travel. Despite being fairly comfortable, the comfort is rated good, not excellent, which may impact long listening sessions. The build quality is very good, with a foldable design for easier portability, and controls that are considered the best in class. They have a detachable cable and support the LDAC codec for high-quality audio over Bluetooth. In terms of battery life, you can expect up to 30 hours of use, which is suitable for extended periods away from a charger, although there's no wireless charging option, and they take 1.5 hours to charge. When considering use cases, music listening is good, but for calls and meetings, gaming, TV, and video, or use during exercise, the headphones are given a poor score, likely due to the mic quality, latency, or fit. They are not rated as sweatproof or dustproof, which might be a concern for exercise or outdoor use. The headphones come with an app that allows you to equalize the sound and customize controls, catering to both Android and Apple users, but they lack ear or head detection features. If you're looking for a durable, noise-canceling headphone at a lower midrange price for commuting and music, the Soundcore Space One could suit your needs, but for interactive uses like gaming and calls, or for fitness activities, they may fall short.

Ratings by Category

Battery Life:
5.0
The Battery Life rating is based on hours of typical, actual usage.
Air Travel:
4.7
This score evaluates the product for use on airplanes and other similar kinds of travel. It takes into account noise reduction and portability, including case shape, case size, and weight. It also incorporates the battery life of the product, long-haul comfort, noise reduction (both active and passive), and sound quality. We generally consider wireless products to be more suitable for air travel.
Music:
4.3
The Soundcore Space One headphones provide a good listening experience for music due to their closed over-ear design which offers a more intimate soundstage and better noise isolation, paired with dynamic drivers that generally deliver a more impactful and detailed sound. Additionally, support for the LDAC codec when used wirelessly enables high-resolution audio streaming, further improving sound quality for music lovers.
Portability:
3.5
The Portability score is based on an overall assessment that includes volume and maximum dimension of the product (and case, if relevant), and its weight. Special features like foldability for headphones are also taken into account.

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."
