Noise cancellation on these isn't great. Putting them on cushions the ears and naturally blocks a lot of noise. Switching on the actual noise cancellation only adds about another 10% on top. I generally can't tell when it's on.

They also make a lot of weird noises with the noise cancelling on, walk down steps, turn your head quickly, or have a loud sudden noise like a door slamming and you get a loud static whoosh noise that's really uncomfortable. Various external noises or sudden movements seen to trigger clicks, whistles or whooshes. Doesn't happen with nc switched off.

Sounds a bit louder and clearer with the wire instead of Bluetooth. Great for 40 quid but at 80 or more they would have gone back.

If you are buying these just for the NC I wouldn't bother. As a pair of headphones they are good, comfy, slightly lacking in the middle range, not particularly crisp. Managed to wear for 3 or 4 hours at a time with no discomfort, I could only manage an hour in my akg50s

Any good? Flat sound or bass enhanced?


I got the Q20 when the discount code stack worked.

It's very much worth £40 in my view, but do not use the BassUp mode. The Bass is fine without it and audio quality takes a dive using it.

The battery lasts near the rated figure of 30 hours with ANC on and the ANC works very well for a cheap Bluetooth Headset. Range seems good to me too.

For the price these are excellent, google for reviews, they rate very highly.
Is this a good price for these?

I'd say so, have these and they are very good sound for the money and quite comfy.
Only downside, if anything is the volume level isn't high enough, but unless you are trying to damage your ears, you'll be fine
The "noice cancellation off" voice sounds pretty annoying

I bought them then as well. What you’d said very much sums up my experience.

So glad I bought them when I did as working from home with two kids around would have been next to impossible without decent noise cancelling headphones - these have been excellent for that.
Thanks ordered for my son.

It is not bad. The lowest they have recently been on amazon is £36.59. Last month AliExpress had them at £24 (posted on HUKD) which was a total bargain (but delivery from China)
Can't praise this Chinese brand enough. Great products, CS, warranty, value for money

Got previous model to this, Life 2 (bought as gift set) and they're fab cans, very neutral (a bit more than these actually), incredibly comfy and well made, but these are even better, ANC & battery life improved on this upgraded model, sound a bit bassier (= more mainstream)

(Bass-up button being completely pointless except for hip-hop fans)

I have these and if you want over ear headphones at a decent price, I can’t praise them enough. Highly recommended

I have these and the Lindy BNX-60 and for the extra £10+ £2.99 postage i'd go for the Lindy. The Lindy also come with a hardcase as standard, buy two pairs and postage is free.
anyone know how these compare to these MPOW headphones that have a £10 off offer at the moment, making them the same price. Specs look pretty much the same.

Pretty much, I paid £48 for them earlier and they’ve been worth it
How are these for drowning out neighbours and their music? Desperately in need of headphones for this reason cos I can't handle it anymore and having health flare up.
I got these at Christmas for the same price - wouldn't recommend. The noise cancellation adds a noticeable hiss so is unusable. The battery life is good but not 40 hours or whatever they say. And the sound quality is OK but not great. And the annoying voice controls can't be disabled as far as I can tell.
These are excellent, bought 2 pairs back in Jan for trip to California, within 20 mins aboard the plane, baby starts crying and on goes these! worked a treat! great sound
I have had a pair of these for a year, great sound quality and anc vs similar priced competition. One downside would be they don't offer much breathing/ you'll overheat like mad if you do any exercise
These are excellent for the money...truly won't find a budget option with so many great features as this
Does anyone use these over bluetooth with their TV? If so if there any lag? Seems really difficult to tell which budget headphones get lag/don't - would love to use these for gaming/netflix direct bluetooth from smart tv (I'm probably asking too much for £40 haha)

Yeah but one of them threatened to cut my hand off if I did it again quite a while back and the other guy....On three occasions I've had ago at him and tbf he turned it down. On the 4th occasion however he came down with his mates ( i shouted up to him on opposite side of my block) and was being aggressive and threatening but being very very careful in the words he was using. His mate next to him directly threatened me and his other mates up stairs were giving me the evils outside the windows.

My little neighbourhood is like 60%+ scum.

I have a recent £40 Aldi pair and by the other descriptions it uses the same chipset and NC. It's good at removing constant droning noise, office AC, plane engines (to a point) things like speach are barely affected at all.
I also found the NC to be uncomfortable to use, strange sensation which was not really due to sound I consciously heard, that could be my bad ears.

A colleague at work has some fancy Sony headphones and the NC there is so much better it's actually scary how good it is.

If its actual health then don't go cheap, the NC on anything outside Sony and Bose is probably all based on the same cheap generic chips and similar selective performance.

Go find a good headphone review site and check out expert reviews.

Wow.

Contact your local council to make a noise complaint if it’s that bad.

The threat of eviction might do the trick
I did a lot of reviews for ANC headphones, from cheap options like these and higher end like Sony or Bose. I decided on these and the ANC is impressive with low end sounds but high end not so much. Once you have music on, it doesn't matter. In lockdown, work well when trying to drown sounds out and for the several times I have cut the grass, cannot hear the lawnmower at all.

All in all, very good headset for the price.
How do these compare to the MPOW headphones which are the same price on Amazon when you apply the £10 voucher currently on offer?
Great value for money.

Unfortunately I can't answer this but it's saved me asking the same as I'd love to know. Been looking for some Bluetooth headphones for a while to pair with my LG OLED C6 so can watch films in bed at night whilst draining out the wife's snoring(!) but there's very little online (as I'm sure you know) that talk about TV pairing, which is a shame.

I think I’ve paired them with my Ambilight tv but can’t remember using them with it yet. But I use them all the time watching things on both my iPhone and iPad with no lag at all (something that has bothered me with other Bluetooth headphones).
I'd say the volume is fine (too loud intact) .
There is noticeable Bluetooth lag (TV or pc).
Noise cancelling is good for price.

Worst part is no auto off and are easily left on
I've spent the last few days pouring over videos and reviews of the Anker Q10, Q20, Taotronics BH085, Sony WH-XB700, etc. Opted for the Taotronics BH085 as they have great reviews, are Bluetooth 5 and have aptX. They've currently got £9 off promotion on Amazon.

Just tested them and I couldn’t see any lag what so ever (although it might depend on the tv your using them with)

Thank you mate, that's really good to know. At least Amazon have a good returns policy if there are any problems so the temptation to buy is growing!
Did they name it "Q20" to make people think they're getting something similar to Bose?

Thanks for the tip. Did you look at the Taotronics BH090? It's supposedly the newer version with improved hybrid ANC but looks like a smaller battery and no aptX...

If you found it uncomfortable on one you will likely on all. I have the same problem unfortunately.

I also had the SONY WH-XB900N and thought finally problem solved. A week later the same problem.

NR was, I agree, worlds apart.
