    Out of the box these sound pretty bad - way way too bassy and recessed treble

    I would HIGHLY recommend the EQ settings above (you need to guesstimate the values in the app). If you use Android, just use the Wavelet app and use the AutoEQ preset for Anker Q30.

    I picked up the Q45's at the weekend, managed to get them for £95.
    Was torn between them and the Q30's. Apparently the sound quality is the same on both, but the build quality and ANC are much better on the Q45's, and I am very pleased with them.

    In terms of sound quality (if indeed the Q30 and Q45 are the same) they are fantastic. I'm no audiophile, but I've amassed quite a collection of headphones over the years, many of which have been expensive high end ones at the time, and the Soundcores are up there with some of the best, especially for the price.

    The out of the box sound profile on them isn't great (it's not bad), but the Soundcore app lets you pick from a lot of EQ presets and even set up and save your own, and the sound really comes to life once you get the right EQ that works for you.

    I used this:

    Tweaked it ever so slightly and brought the bass frequency up a little and I think they sound amazing.

    Nice, where were the Q45’s at £95?

    I wouldn't recommend. The noise cancelling on these is terrible even for the low price

    I'm curious to know what situation you're using them for as I find the noise cancelling to be excellent, the only thing I would improve is that the mic doesn't work when you use the aux cable to connect them

    Best budget headphones I ever bought, and I have fish tanks in my house and can't hear those when wearing these. Plus if you check Youtube, the ANC works, but it operates canceling on specific frequencies, and as ever some people are more active on different frequencies so that will vary between individuals.
    I have returned more expensive headsets and been more than happy with these, and I also wear them with meditation soundtracks and mind machines!
    I do understand how peoples taste vary when buying headphones as I have sensitive hearing and have had problems with hearing after working on customer services wearing headsets for more than 12hrs a day.
    If I upgrade my headsets I may go for Anker but a new model now as these have made my listening experience so much better since buying these last time they were on offer.

    I will return mine as the price has dropped and purchase again. The noise cancellation is decent the thing I dont like is sound leakage everyone can hear your music if on loud.

    What is the price now?

    I've got these for DIY around the house and the Q45 for out and about. I much prefer the Q30s as they are little and more comfortable. Q45 noise cancellation is slightly better but not by much. I wouldn't be without my Q30s, they are unbeatable for the money.

    Great price for these, I love mine, and having the 5 min charge for 4 hours extra usage is brilliant. I have similar on my Anker Liberty 2 ear buds, but 2 hours for 10 min charge in the charging case.

    The sponge ear covers have a tendency to perish quite fast on these and the last pair I had broke at the fold in hinge. You can order new ear padding if they do perish. And also got feedback when in noise cancelling mode near the end of using them.

    I have the 35 more than a year and it's pretty good. I don't think there are many differences between this and the 35.
    Just but it .

    I use these headphones on my tv at night got them for £33 about a year ago on Amazon still works like the day I got them for under £100 these are the best headphones in my 2p opinion
    Shrekt's avatar
    They're far from the best under £100...

    Got these a couple of days ago and loving them so far agree with the comments / reviews that say the sound isn't great out of the box, so with the help of the comments on this thread & reddit came up with these settings which (to my ears) sound a lot better (pic from the Soundcore app)

    The sound profile is basically the classic U shape, boost the bass and treble, which suits certain types of music (eg EDM). I used an inverted U to make mine a bit more neutral sounding.

    No noise cancellation when plugged in- appealing…even though it’s explained but I can’t figure out why!
