Sometimes your home audio requires a real investment.

And sometimes you’ll do just fine with headphones that cost less than cheap takeout for two.

The Anker Soundcore Life Q20 headphones are comfy, over-ear cans with active noise cancellation, 40 hours of playtime per charge and enhanced bass at the push of a button.

So how are these just $40 (down from $60)? The reasons seems to be small. The extra features (like ANC) and the mic don’t work when you’re plugged in in lieu of going wireless. Aesthetically, the headset looks fine but a bit plastic-y. And the noise cancellation isn’t as extensive as other headphones, at least the ones that break the $200 barrier.

But as an owner of a few Soundcore headsets, I can attest that these do the job nicely if you want something to block out the noise but not dent your wallet. Possible suggestion: Get your Bose, Master & Dynamic or Sony ‘phones during a sale, then pick these up as a backup.
