Anker is a name synonymous with affordable headphones: wired and wireless. The Life Q10 is the brand’s best offering under $50, spoiling owners with plenty of performance across multiple categories. Battery life maxes out at 60 hours, which is something we’ve yet to see from any other model at this price point. The headphones even support fast USB-C charging to generate 5 hours of playtime on a 5-minute charge. Bluetooth 5.0 also lets you stream music wirelessly up to 50 feet away from your audio device. Plush padding on the earcups make the headphones a comfy wear for about 1 to 2 hours.
The Life Q10’s default signature is decent, giving mids and highs some attention, but accentuating the low end to produce deep bass. Anker programmed a BassUp mode should you want to increase the bass levels, but the feature comes on too strong, resulting in some unpleasant distortion.
