If you’re in the market for new headphones, the Anker Life Q20 may be what you need. To quote CNET’s headphone guru, David Carnoy: “It’s fairly well balanced with a reasonable amount of clarity and plump bass that’s not bloated or muddy (there’s a bass boost or BassUp mode if you want an extra helping of bass). It’s also comfortable to wear, the noise canceling is acceptably effective, it’s solid as a headset for making calls and battery life is good at 40 hours.” Just keep in mind we’ve seen these sell for as low as $40 — a price they could possibly return to during Prime Day.
