This is my review of the newly released Soundcore Sport Air Wireless Workout Earphones, Anker was kind enough to send these to me to test out for my unbiased opinion and these are my thoughts.
These are also available at Walmart
I will spare everyone the unboxing photos, mostly because I didnt take any aside from the outside of the box and the headphones themselves…please Anker you have to do something about all the extra plastic that is included, that plastic sleeve can be exchanged for a cardboard insert.
These Headphones are priced at $35 dollars making them a true bargain and almost a no brainer for those looking for some workout headphones. They offer a 10 hour battery life, to which I can attest to that even at 70 percent volume they have lasted me just shy off 11 hours of use. If need be, in a bind you can top them up for 10 minutes and get over an hour of use…I have taken advantage of this feature more than once as I use them when working and then to the gym afterwards, sometimes they Die so a quick top up gets me through my workout. These are also fully waterproof with sweatguard technology, so you can use these in even the most sweatiest of workouts and these will still be fine.
They Are Magnetic
These headphones are magnetic, they can be clipped to itself around your neck or wrist. They do NOT however turn on or off, play or pause music when the magnetic connection is made or broken. Im perfectly happy that they do have the magnetic connection and can help prevent losing them when not in use
When I first got these I thought they would be like all the other headphones, have somewhat good bass and the vocals would be good enough to get by. But when I first put them in my ears and turned them on I was blown away and that is no exaggeration. The bass line hit hard and was nice and punchy, the vocals where nice and clear and by golly were they loud, all of this is thanks to the 12mm drivers. From rock to rap, jazz to classical, these can play it all. There is no inline remote so when you run they do not favor or fall heavy on one side and allows for a more intense workouts and running sessions. They have controls built into the right earbud for volume up and down, play and pause is done by pressing the center button. You can also take phone calls with these by pressing the center button to answer it, Sound quality is superb when on the phone using these and often times the other party did not know I was using these.
Still uses Micro USB instead of USB-C
The main button can be a bit hard to press as it pushes into the ear
The cord comes out at an angle on the bottom of the earbuds, which can be an annoyance for some
These headphones have become my new go to, sure they have a cord between them, but they charge fast and sound great playing anything you throw at it. With the IPx7 rating and sweatguard technology I have used these in the shower after my workout and they keep on ticking. With the large 12mm driver you will hear and feel more of the music than previous headphones from Anker and Soundcore, So get your wallets out and buy yourself a pair today. If you have any questions feel free to ask and I will answer the best I can
