Have the silver one I bought from Amazon. ANC is the best compared to anything in it's price range. My wife has the QC 35 and the ANC is slightly worse. When it's turned on, there is a more audible white noise than the QC 35s but there was not a huge difference between the two.

Next is comfort. Pretty comfortable but right away I could tell the clamp force on these are higher than the Bose. I have a huge noggin and it fit fine but less comfortable.

Sound quality is actually the best I've used on any Bluetooth headphones, it's incredibly detailed. Only complaint with these is that the bass is a bit over emphasized in certain songs I listened to.

Build quality is okay. Plasticky all around but its pretty well built. I have the silver one and to me it looks nicer than the black one. Personal preference though.

Micro USB kind of of sucks, nearly everything I own uses USB-C, but now I have to keep track of this stupid cable when I want to charge it.

I'm tempted to pick up another one as a present.

The Anker Soundcore Life Q20 Wirless are a slightly improved version of the Anker SoundCore Life 2 Wireless. The Q20 have improved ANC, which will do a better job at blocking out both background speech as well as the low engine rumble of planes or buses. Their battery life is also improved slightly, though it doesn't quite reach the advertised 40 hours. People with small heads will find them more comfortable and stable than the previous version, as they're a bit smaller. On the other hand, the Life 2 have a more balanced sound profile and come with a much nicer hard carrying case.

I recently picked up Bose 700. All around good sound comfort and build quality but they won't stay on my head when I'm leaning forward or backwards. Tempted to pick one up as a back up since it's so cheap.

Likewise, though these coming with a hard travel case is a nice bonus. Hmm

How would these compare to the bose soundlink that were $79 a couple weeks ago? I bought those for my wife and they seem good. But I'm cheap for myself. And this is about all I would spend on myself

I've had 4 products from Anker's soundcore line and while they are good for the price, their sound is just okay to me. Usually a bit muddy with good bass but small sound stage. I usually have an issue that bugs me whether it be static pops, white hiss, or one side disconnects.
