Whether you’re sitting at your desk or commuting to an office, a good pair of headphones can be a game-changer. The problem is that headphones can be expensive, especially if you want the latest and greatest features. That’s where the new soundcore headphones come in. The Space A40 earbuds and Space Q45 headphones are two great new options for anyone looking for a reliable pair of noise-canceling headphones packed with features but won’t break the bank.

Space A40 Earbuds

If you want a pair of discreet earbuds that punch above their weight class, soundcore has long been the go-to option. The newest Space A40 earbuds are another example of the company offering premium features at an entry-level price point. The Space A40 earbuds are a discreet touch-sensitive pair of earbuds that combine Hi-Res wireless certified sound quality with impressive active noise cancellation (ANC). If you need to be aware of your surroundings to catch an announcement or to answer a question, you can easily switch to transparency mode with a single touch. With HearID, soundcore performs a quick hearing test via its app and creates a unique hearing profile for you that saves to the earbuds. So whatever you listen to will be tuned to better match how you hear.

One problem with small earbuds like this is that they typically have terrible battery life, but that isn’t the case here. These will last about 10 hours on a single charge, with an extra four full charges in the ergonomic pill-shaped charging case. So if you don’t want another product you need to charge at the end of every day, this could be your solution. They’re also IPX4 rated, so you don’t have to worry about them getting damaged if you get caught in the rain too. The cherry on top is multipoint connectivity which means you can stay connected to two devices simultaneously, and the earbuds will switch between them seamlessly whenever you switch. For just $99 the soundcore A40s could be a great option if you’re in the market to add some Bluetooth earbuds to your EDC.

Space Q45 Headphones

If you’re not a fan of small earbuds, you’re not alone. Still, soundcore has something for you too. The Space Q45 over-ear headphones are sleek headphones that offer fantastic features without costing an arm or a leg. They feature a 4-mic active noise canceling system with added algorithms that adjust the strength of noise canceling depending on your outside environment. Though they also have an ambient mode for when you need to hear what’s going on around you. These are Hi-Res certified as well, whether you’re listening with wires or going completely wireless.

The great thing about getting over-ears is that there is much more space for a bigger battery. On a single charge, the Space Q45 will give you around 50 hours of playback with active noise canceling turned on. If you need to squeeze out a few extra hours of listening time, turning off ANC will up that number to an impressive 65 hours. The Space Q45 headphones also use unique algorithms to detect and enhance voices while on a phone call. So if you need to answer a quick call or hop on a business meeting, you won’t sound terrible to the person on the other end. These come in black, white, and navy color options, and you can pick them up for yourself for $149.
