Soundcore by Anker

Maintain your focus with hybrid active noise cancellation. Dual noise-detecting microphones pick up and filter out up to 95% of low-frequency ambient sound to ensure nothing distracts you from your music.

Customize noise cancellation with 3 modes:

  • Transport minimizes airplane engine noise
  • Outdoor reduces traffic and wind
  • Indoor dampens the sound of busy rooms with people talking in the background

Play up to 40 hours of music in noise cancelling mode. Standard mode extends the playtime to 60 hours, while a short 5-minute charge gives you 4 hours of listening.

Ultra-soft protein leather earcups with memory foam padding to fit snugly over your ears. The lightweight build also ensures they’re comfortable for long listening sessions.
