Anker Soundcore Space One Wireless Review (2024)

Type Over-ear

Enclosure Closed-Back

Wireless Yes

Transducer Dynamic

Noise Cancelling Yes

Mic Yes

The Anker Soundcore Space One Wireless are wallet-friendly noise cancelling (ANC) headphones. They have adaptive noise cancelling, which automatically adjusts to the noise around you, as well as five modes to meet your preferred isolation needs. They also support LDAC codec, which is handy for streaming high-quality audio. That said, while they're meant to emulate the performance of their higher-end sibling, the Anker Soundcore Space Q45 Wireless, there are some obvious weak points, which reflect their affordable price tag.

Our Verdict

7.0 Neutral Sound

TheAnker Space One are satisfactory for neutral sound. Out of the box, they have a V-shaped sound profile that delivers extra bass while added treble helps vocals and instruments still stand out from the mix. That said, since they're closed-back headphones, they don't create the most immersive soundstage. Their ear cup padding is shallow, too, and it can be hard to get a good fit; if you wear glasses or have thick hair, these features can cause a big drop in bass delivery. Luckily, if you prefer a different sound, their companion app offers an adaptive EQ based on your unique hearing preferences, a graphic EQ for more robust sound customization, and a whopping 22 EQ presets.

Pros

  • Robust sound customization available via companion app.

  • Support LDAC codec.

Cons

  • Prone to inconsistencies in audio delivery.

  • Closed off and small soundstage.

See our Neutral Sound Recommendations

7.4 Commute/Travel

TheAnker Space One are decent for commute and travel. These headphones have noise cancelling and can block out some of the low rumble of bus and plane engines, although it won't be enough for noisy commutes. They also lack a hard carrying case to help protect them from bumps or damage when you're on the go. Their shallow ear cups mean your ears can rub against the driver housing. On the upside, they last over 34 hours continuously, so you don't need to stress about them dying during your trip.

Pros

  • ANC can cut down mid to treble range noise well.

  • Well-built design.

Cons

  • ANC struggles to block out bass-range noise.

  • Lack a hard carrying case to protect them from damage.

See our Commute/Travel Recommendations

6.9 Sports/Fitness

TheAnker Space One are fair for sports and fitness. If you want to wear over-ears for running or working out, note that these headphones can fall off your head with intense head movements. They also lack an IP rating for water resistance (though that's to be expected from their design). While they have a decently comfortable fit, the ear cup padding is shallow and can cause your ears to rub against the drivers.

Pros

  • Well-built design.

Cons

  • Not the most stable for moving around.

See our Sports/Fitness Recommendations

7.1 Office

TheAnker Space One are decent for office use. These headphones have an ANC system that can block out sounds like chatty coworkers and noisy AC vents. They also have a long continuous battery life, even with the ANC on. Thanks to multi-device pairing support, you can simultaneously stay connected to your work PC and smartphone. Unfortunately, while they're decently comfortable, the ear cup padding is quite shallow and can cause your ears to rub against the drivers.

Pros

  • Support multi-device pairing.

  • ANC can cut down mid to treble range noise well.

  • Well-built design.

Cons

  • Mediocre at best microphone performance.

  • Prone to inconsistencies in audio delivery.

  • Closed off and small soundstage.

See our Office Recommendations

5.5 Wireless Gaming

TheAnker Space One are Bluetooth headphones, and their latency is too high on PCs to be suitable for gaming.

See our Wireless Gaming Recommendations

7.1 Wired Gaming

TheAnker Space One are decent for wired gaming, so long as you don't mind their lack of mic support via analog. They have an excited sound that adds thumpy, rumbly bass to gameplay, which can help keep you pumped up while gaming. However, their ear cup padding is quite shallow and may not be the most comfortable for long gaming sessions. Their mids are recessed, too, so game dialogue sounds weak and veiled compared to the boominess of sound effects.

Pros

  • Well-built design.

Cons

  • Prone to inconsistencies in audio delivery.

5.7 Phone Calls

TheAnker Space One are sub-par for phone calls. Their integrated mic seems to have a compensation algorithm, which causes the mic to disable itself when there's a very high amount of background noise, as it can't detect your voice. This makes taking calls in noisy places like a busy office very challenging. Recorded speech also sounds thin and robotic. On the upside, these cans have ANC and can block out a good amount of ambient sound so that you can focus on your call.

Pros

  • Support multi-device pairing.

Cons

  • Mediocre at best microphone performance.

  • 7.0 Neutral Sound
  • 7.4 Commute/Travel
  • 6.9 Sports/Fitness
  • 7.1 Office

Compared To Other Headphones

The Anker Space One are the more budget-friendly sibling of the Anker Soundcore Space Q45 Wireless. While both models look fairly similar and offer nearly identical features, there are some key differences between the two. The Space One's noise isolation performance isn't anything to write home about, especially compared to the similarly priced Anker Soundcore Life Q35 Wireless. Their ear cup padding also received a bit of redesign, but it's now shallower, making it trickier to get a good seal on your head. Even though they have a lot of extra features like other products from this manufacturer, they don't stand out from the rest of Anker's lineup.

The Anker Space One have a decently comfortable fit but are less comfortable than headphones like the Anker Soundcore Space Q45 Wireless or the Anker Soundcore Life Q30 Wireless. The padding is decently soft, but the ear cup padding is quite shallow, which affects their ability to create a quality seal on your head. The left and right ear cups don't have the same depth. The left driver has a visual sensor to detect when the headphones are on your head. However, the right driver lacks this sensor and is more shallow than the left one, so your ear can rub up against the interior mesh. On the upside, don't clamp too tightly to cause pain or discomfort.

The Anker Space One have great controls. Their physical buttons have nice tactile response when pressing them, and the '-' button is even embossed so that you can feel the difference between this button and the '+' button. There's an audible click for button presses and voice prompts when powering the headphones on, using the Bluetooth connection, and using ANC. However, there aren't warnings to tell you when you've reached the minimum or maximum volume.

On the left ear cup:

Power button:

  • Press and hold: Turns headphones on or off. Holding this button beyond turning the headphones on enters Bluetooth pairing mode.

NC button:

  • Single press: Cycles between ANC on, talk-through mode, which allows you to hear your surroundings without removing the headphones, and normal mode. If you prefer to customize these settings, you can remove and remap different ANC modes using the companion app.
  • Double press: Nothing by default, but you can add 'BassUp' in the companion app, which is an EQ feature that adds more bass to your audio.

Build Quality

These headphones have a good build quality. Even though they have a more affordable price point than their higher-end sibling, the Anker Soundcore Space Q45 Wireless, they have a similar plastic and faux leather build, which doesn't feel of lesser quality. That said, the ear cup padding is too shallow for consistent isolation around your ear, and the snappiness of the hinges will likely degrade over time.

Sound Profile

Treble Amount

Using the 'Soundcore Signature' EQ preset, these headphones have a V-shaped sound profile that helps emphasize rumbly, boomy basslines. While vocals and instruments are veiled and thin due to a recessed mid-range, sibilants like cymbals are bright to help cut through the extra bass. Luckily, if you prefer a different sound, their companion app offers a graphic EQ and presets to help you adjust them. Keep in mind that the 'Soundcore Signature' and 'Custom (Flat) EQ' have the same frequency response. The 'Flat' EQ preset is slightly different, with a touch less bass across the range as well as a little less treble, but it's not a significant change. In addition to the EQ, there's also a HearID feature available via the companion app. It's a personalized EQ based on your unique hearing abilities. The app plays a series of tones at different volumes and asks you to select which ones you hear. It then plays music if you want to further adjust the EQ to your tastes and customize it to other EQs or the audio genres you like. The performance of this feature depends on your own preferences, though.

Although we do our sound tests with the ANC on (when available), we also ran a frequency response pass with the ANC off. You can see a comparison between both responses here. With ANC off, you'll experience a bit less thump and rumble from the bass range and even thinner vocals and instruments, though this second dip is somewhat hard to spot. There isn't much of a difference in the treble range, though.

The Anker Space One's frequency response consistency is just okay. They're prone to inconsistencies in audio delivery, especially as their ear cup padding is quite shallow, making it harder to get a good seal on your head. You'll especially notice a drop in bass delivery if you have thick hair or wear glasses. As a result, it's important to take the time to adjust their fit, positioning, and seal each time you use them to get a more consistent sound.

These headphones have a passable peaks and dips performance. They struggle to control their sound profile, which results in a few significant deviations. A gradual peak in the mid to high-bass adds extra punch and warmth to mixes, while two dips in the low to mid-mid thin out vocals and instruments, pushing them to the back of the mix. A large peak in the high-mid makes these sounds harsh in the mix, while a dip in the low-treble veils their detail. Another large peak in the mid-treble makes sibilants piercing.

Some of the previous headphones we've tested from this manufacturer display imaging issues, which indicates their quality control and ergonomics. That said, imaging varies between units. Our unit's L/R drivers are well-matched in group delay, resulting in tight bass and transparent imaging. They're also well-matched in amplitude and frequency response, which helps ensure a stable stereo image. However, there's a bit of phase mismatch, and the noise floor raises as the ANC kicks in on both drivers but disappears with audio. There are a couple of peaks in the high-mid to low-treble range. The soundstage turns inward at these spots, and the left driver loses depth. Audio in the left driver fluctuates back and forth, resulting in some higher-pitched vocals shifting slightly in the soundstage.

Using the adaptive noise cancelling setting, the noise isolation performance of the Anker Space One Wireless is good. These over-ears have an adaptive ANC system, automatically adjusting its performance to your environment. Unfortunately, it doesn't do quite as good of a job as the more premium Anker Soundcore Space Q45 Wireless, as the ANC has trouble reducing the low rumble of bus and plane engines. On the upside, it does a significantly better job of cutting down ambient chatter and the hum of AC units than in the bass range, which can be handy for noisy offices.

Extending the length of times our sweeps take shows a slight difference in performance. You can see a graph comparing these measurements here. The system adapts slightly better when exposed to noise for longer periods. However, this improvement is minor.

If you don't like adaptive noise cancelling, you can also select one of five different ANC modes in their companion app. You can see a comparison between all these settings and the adaptive setting here. Level five will give you the overall best performance, but levels one and two can isolate you from a little more low-bass noise, like the rumbles of plane engines, and high-pitched noise, like computer fans.

Our test can't capture results representative of this mic's real-life use. The mic may have a compensation algorithm for high volumes across a wide frequency range. This results in the mic automatically turning itself off during our tests. We suspect that if the microphone doesn't detect a voice within the normal vocal range or is drowned out by loud audio, it cuts itself off to maintain the call quality for the other person on the line. We don't expect this to be an issue if you take calls in quieter spaces like home. However, loud noises can cut your voice out altogether, which can be frustrating.

The mic's recording quality isn't great in real-life usage; your voice sounds thin and slightly robotic. It's still fairly easy to follow your voice, though.

The mic's noise handling performance is mediocre. When speaking in a place with moderate, consistent sound, background noise is mostly cut through, though your voice can sound muffled. However, if you're taking calls in a noisy environment like a busy street or office, the mic can disable itself, which basically cuts speech off. This may be due to a compensation algorithm within the headphones; when the microphone can't detect a voice within the normal vocal range, or if that voice is drowned out by loud audio, it disables itself to preserve call quality. As a result, the person you're talking to won't hear background noise, but they also won't hear your voice either.
