  • Trading blows with the big brands!
    Reviewed by elzeus - April 7, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Anker's Soundcore Life Tune XR headphones are a joy to listen to. The packaging includes a carrying case which other brands at this price point and above it seem to not include any more so it's a welcome addition. These headphones paired up just fine with my 2 devices (phone & tablet) and using the mobile app I was able to pick the sound preset of my choice. Overall I felt that the sound was a bit base heavy for my liking so I toned it down with the piano preset and it sounded great to me. The included noise canceling is great and easily gets rid of most distracting sounds and you can listen through the microphone to the sounds around you conveniently by just holding the right ear cup for a second or switching it on with a widget or phone app. The ear cups are comfortable faux leather and the top band is not tight at all on the top of my head. I have a wide head and didn't feel uncomfortable at all after several hours of use. The battery life is phenomenal and the included USB-C charging cable as well as the 3.5mm cord makes things very simple. I'm really floored by all of the features and quality for the price and have no qualms about recommending these headphones.

  • Soundcore Brought The Noise
    Reviewed by hitsuyoo - April 8, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Okay, first things first. Download the Soundcore app on your app store of choice. Then open the box, power on(probably already at medium) and shut the world out and jam out. Wait, wait, wait. I got ahead of myself. Inside the box, you'll get the Life XR headphones inside a nice , non-descriptive case( Not a bag). The bag inside of the case, holds a type-c charging cable and 3.5 mm aux cable. I love that. I may use that when watching a movie from my projector later, in life. This is an upgrade from the standard Life model. The touch to pass-through feature is still aces. And the battery life is still off the charts with 40 hrs ANC and up to 60 hrs without it. No one really needs that much life, but I'll take it. The simple and sleek black on well made plastic, give them a premium look and feel. The controls are very easy to get to and use. Again, I'm going to highlight the app. This thing give pretty much all of your Anker/Soundcore speaker a major boost. It adds an EQ for the headphones , that will stay at your chosen setting, even if you switch and use another device to listen from. I recommend charging before use( scratch what I said earlier. That was just an option.) just to get the full use out of your headphones. Anker rarely disappoints when it comes to making speakers & headphones and they didn't disappoint here either. I just wish they where water resistant. But that is really asking the rain to purify itself. I love the sound and the comfort and being from Anker, I expect to have these for quite some time. These easily rival much more expensive headphones on the market. One final thing: If you didn't know, Soundcore does over the air updates,so your gear will spay as up to date as possible, with app. If you haven't guesed, yes. I recommend these headphones.

  • Feature Packed, at a Great Cost
    Reviewed by Balboa3 - April 11, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These headphones are feature packed, have good sound quality, and manage to deliver at a reasonable cost. The headphone market is huge. I should know, I keep adding them to my collection. You can find a variety of headphones at different price brackets. These Anker headphones deliver a huge bang for your buck. Sound quality is really good, they won’t be taking title of best sound from more costly headphones, but they deliver AA sound in their price range. Noise Cancellation, and Transparency are also good within this price range. You will not be disappointed in either sound quality, or noise cancellation unless you are coming from some higher end headphones. The Soundcore app has a ton of features and allows you to tweak different aspects of the headphones. You can adjust the EQ, either setting your own or choosing from a variety of presets. I left it on Soundcore’s own profile and really enjoy the sound. The app also allows you to change the Noise Cancellation settings depending on the environment you’re in. One really nice unique feature was that within the app you can stream ad free music from a variety of Independent artists. Anker has a partnership with a streaming service called LUM. These will not be artists/songs that you tearing up the Billboard charts, but they have some really great Independent artists of all genres. Build quality is mostly plastic, with nice cushiony ear cups and band. After using them for hours at a time I didn’t have any discomfort on my ears or the top of my head. You get buttons for ANC control, volume, play/pause, and a nice touch control to toggle Transparency mode on and off. These are a great set of headphones that offer up a ton of amazing features, with some great sound, and ANC. I didn’t even mention the 60 hour battery and USB-C quick charging. It would be difficult to find a better value.

  • Music to my ears!!!!
    Reviewed by Hmirza - April 7, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Life Tune XR Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones are amazing headphone made for everyday and all-day use. These headphones are actually very comfortable to wear, fit great and most importantly sound amazing with their Hi-Res audio, noise cancellation and transparency mode. These headphones have proven themselves in variety of uses such gaming, taking phone calls with the dual built in microphones, listening to some music, and even helping in falling asleep faster. So, lets go over some of the features of the Soundcore Life Tune XR Headphones by Anker. Features: -First and foremost, these headphones feature a fast pairing process using NFC feature on your phone and the headphones to connect. I personally did not notice much of a difference in connecting the headphones using the traditional Bluetooth method. Nice feature to have but Bluetooth works just fine. -Secondly, I highly recommend that you download the Soundcore app if you want to fully utilize the features available on these headphones. The app allows you to adjust the equalizer on the headphones. The equalizer has multiple presets setting already set for your convenience, such as bass booster, bass reducer, dance, flat, deep, podcast, and many more. The app also allows you to access the sleep mode or as I like to call it “Relax Mode”. The sleep mode also has multiple ambient sounds built in such as fan noise, camp fire, or the ticking of a clock and many more. The app also allows you to adjust the noise cancellation levels based on where you are, if you are indoor, outdoors, or in a transport. So, the soundcore app is truly a must for you to unlock the full protentional of the amazing headphones. -So, the box states that with 5-minutes of charging you can get 4 hours of playtime. I tested this feature out, left the headphones to charge for 5 minutes and I think with the ANC mode on I was able to get about almost 3 hours of playtime, which considering is still not bad at all. These headphones provide up to 60 hours of playtime on the normal mode and 40 hours with the ANC mode on. -Active Noise Cancelling – Indoor, Outdoor, Transport -Transparency Mode -Button controls for volume and Noise Cancellation, and touch control for transparency mode -Comfortable and Light Weight, these headphones are super comfortable. The earcups are memory foam and provide all day comfort. I was able to wear these while working, roughly about 8 hours, and I had no issue except for my ears started to get hot and sweaty, other than that they were amazing. -One of my favorite feature of this headphone was the fact that even though these are advertised as wireless headphones, you have the option to also use them as wired with the provided 3.5mm audio jack cable. Even though many manufactures are moving away from the audio jack, I am glad soundcore at least gave us the option. Overall, I honestly could not find anything that I was not happy with, these are comfortable, sound amazing and solid built headphones. I would highly recommend these headphones.

  • Premium package without the premium price
    Reviewed by MrShinyCadillackness - April 9, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] For the price and features this is quite possibly the best bang for the buck in the over-the-ear Bluetooth headphone category today. Add the fact that a hard travel case is included instead of (maybe) a soft bag from headphones twice this price, it’s really a no brainer. First and foremost is sound quality. If you are in the market for over-the-ear headphones, you take your listening fidelity seriously. Earbuds just don’t cut it for a fully immersive listening experience. I am happy to report that the Soundcore Life Tune XR headphones DELIVER! Straight out of the box, they sound great, but it’s not until you download the app and select an EQ to suit your ears that you will fully appreciate these headphones. The app includes single tap custom EQ filters based on most listening scenarios. From Podcasts, to Rock, to Rap and Classical, it’s all there and more. If you don’t find an EQ that suits your listening style, there is a custom 8 band EQ function that lets you tailor the listening to your personal preference. Needless to say, there is PLENTY of Bass on tap if you want it. The app is also really well designed and thought out. The graphics are also very responsive and pleasing to view and navigate. The app also includes a quick start guide ensuring that just about anyone can configure these headphones with their host device very easily. There are three levels of noise cancelling (NC) on tap. The first being “Noise Cancellation” which is exactly what it means. If you want the highest level of cancellation from outside sounds, this works as intended. You literally can’t hear anything but your audio. If that is too much and you want to know if someone is trying to get your attention, or you simply don’t want to be scared by someone coming up behind you (to get your attention), switch it over to “Transparency” which allows the most external sound in. In fact, I feel like it actually acts as the opposite of Noise Cancellation and amplifies your surroundings all while maintaining a great music sound. If you want it in-between both of the former, simply select “Normal” mode as a good standard balance between the two. Also included with the app is a Sleep Mode section that lets you use sliders to mix your own ambient soundscape. Try some light rain with the gentle sound of a campfire and a few birds chirping and you will doze off in no time. Battery life is rated at up to 60 hours without NC and up to 40 hours with NC. More than enough for all day listening. The charging cable is USB-C and is also included. As well as a standard audio cable just in case you drain your battery but want to keep rocking. Lastly, these are really comfortable to wear. They are light and don’t strain the crown of your head when worn for long periods of time. The pads that touch your ears are soft and comfy. I also appreciate the fact that the ear cups turn and lay flat on your chest when not in use making them even more comfortable to wear for long periods of time. The fold-flat rotating drivers are a great design that all manufacturers should adopt, as well as including a zippered hard case for travel. Kudos to Soundcore for both! If I was to nitpick, the only thing that I would change would be the location of the power button and the color of it so it can be located easier. I find myself grabbing my glasses to locate the power button, then putting my thumb on it while placing them on my head. If it was red, or blue, or even purple, that would be another nice touch. All in all you really can't beat this package for the price. With the included clam shell zipper case, the sound quality, the EQ features, and the weight, these are going to get some serious use!
