It was only a few years ago that Anker started making premium audio gear, through its Soundcore sub-brand. Even though it doesn’t exactly have much of a historical pedigree, it’s managed to impress through worthwhile products like the Soundcore Space NC.
One interesting product in its line-up is the Soundcore Life NC. These neckband earbuds come equipped with active noise cancellation (ANC) technology, which can absorb external noise that would otherwise interrupt the listening experience. This makes them perfect for listening to music on a flight or catching up on podcasts when crunching weights at the gym.
Battery life is pretty solid for neckband earbuds, which are typically lighter and thinner at the expense of overall longevity. You get 15 hours in standard more, or ten hours while listening with noise cancelling. When you run out of juice, you can connect the buds to a 3.5mm cable, via the included MicroUSB adaptor.
Right now, the Soundcore Life NC retails for $99 on Amazon, but you can get a respectable $20 off by using the code SCLIFE22. This voucher is active until April 22, so you’ve got a bit of time to make your mind up.
And if that’s a bit too steep for your blood, you can get the Anker SoundBuds Slim+ for just $21.99 rather than the usual price of $29.99. Just use the code AKSLPLUS, which is valid until April 24. While they don’t come with the Soundcore Life NC’s ANC capability, they’re still fairly decent jogging earbuds.
