Soundcore, the audio brand owned by Anker Innovations, has introduced its new Space One over-ear headphones. Positioned as the next iteration in the Space series, these headphones come with an upgraded noise-cancellation feature and a focus on reducing external noises. Equipped with a lengthy battery life, LDAC decoding for audio quality, and a comfortable design, the Space One aims to provide a comprehensive listening experience for users.
Enhanced Noise Cancellation Technology:
The headline feature of the Space One headphones is an improved noise-cancellation system that targets specific frequencies to minimize external voices. This is achieved by effectively suppressing mid and high frequencies where human speech typically resides. The aim is to mitigate sounds like conversations, crying infants, and office chatter.
One notable feature of the noise-cancellation system is its adaptive functionality. It can identify both external noises and those entering the ear cups, even when a complete seal isn't formed around the user's ears. This supposedly leads to a significant reduction of up to 98% in unwanted ambient noise.
Audio Quality and Performance:
The Space One headphones utilize a 40mm dynamic driver to deliver sound across various frequencies, promising a balanced audio profile with improved sound clarity and an immersive sound stage. The Soundcore app offers a HearID function, enabling users to tailor the audio experience according to their preferences. With LDAC and Hi-Res Wired and Wireless certifications, the Space One aspires to offer a refined and detailed audio experience.
Extended Battery Life:
Battery life stands out as a strong point for the Space One headphones. With a promise of up to 40 hours of playback time with noise cancellation activated and an impressive 55 hours without it, the headphones seem well-suited for lengthy listening sessions during daily commutes or extended travels. Additionally, a quick 5-minute charge reportedly provides an extra 4 hours of playback time.
Features and Technical Specifications:
The Space One headphones incorporate three microphones and an advanced A.I. algorithm for better call quality and noise reduction. The Soundcore app, available on both major app stores, enables customization options. Other features include wearing detection technology and multi-point connectivity for simultaneous pairing with multiple devices.
An adjustable transparency mode, which can be fine-tuned through the app, aims to ensure users remain aware of their surroundings without missing important announcements.
Availability and Pricing:
The Space One headphones are expected to start shipping from August 28th in three color options: Jet Black, Latte Cream, and Sky Blue. In the US, they will be priced at USD 99.99 and CAD 129.99 in Canada. UK customers can expect availability from August 31st, with a price tag of £89.99, and European customers can purchase them for €99.99.
