The Soundcore Space Q45 headphones are a midrange priced option with over-ear, closed-back design, offering both wireless and wired connectivity. They provide active noise cancelling and foldable form for better portability. While the overall sound quality, soundstage, and comfort are rated good, the microphone quality is fair. They excel in air travel use due to excellent noise isolation and a long battery life of around 41 hours. If you need a sturdy build, the Q45 scores very well, but note that they may be less suitable for activities like gaming or watching TV due to lower scores in those uses. The headphones support LDAC codec for high-resolution audio, an app equalizer for sound customization and have controls optimized for both Android and Apple devices. 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."
