This morning, Anker has announced two new additions to its ever-expanding lineup of audio equipment. After first detailing its Soundcore lineup last month, Anker is now rolling out a new pair of noise cancelling headphones along with an affordable soundbar. Full details below.
First up, we’re going to take a closer look at the new Space NC Wireless Headphones. Designed for active lifestyles and frequent travelers, this pair of over-ear cans sports “professionally-tuned audio” and packs dual 40mm drivers. Memory foam earcups and stellar 20-hour battery life lend itself to the travel-friendly designation along with built-in noise-cancellation.
Where the Space NC Wireless really shine is the built-in control panel on the side. Instead of utilizing physical buttons, Anker has opted for touch controls, which is a nice change from the usual offerings we see in this price range.
- Hybrid Active Noise-Cancellation
- 40mm dynamic drivers
- Touch panel controls music without touching your device
- 20 hours playtime in wireless noise-cancelling mode, 50 hours in wired NC mode
- Ergonomic memory foam, over-ear cushioning and adjustable headband
Anker’s new Space NC Wireless Headphones are available for purchase today from Amazon for $99.99. A carrying case, charging and 3.5mm cables are included with purchase.
Along with today’s headphone release is a new Soundbar called the Infini Mini. This is Anker’s first foray into the highly competitive world of TV audio. Being late to the game here, Anker may face an uphill battle in this area. That said, there are a few reasons to check out this release.
First is price. At $79.95, Anker’s new Soundcore Infini Mini is a value buy. The reality is that it’s pretty difficult to mess up a soundbar and Anker has a lot of experience in the home audio space, with a strong history of popular Bluetooth speakers.
Coming in at 21-inches, the Infini Mini sports optical, auxiliary and 3.5mm inputs. It would be nice to see the addition here of HDMI, but there are few options under $100 on the market that afford this luxury. Bluetooth connectivity delivers the option to play your favorite tunes from just about any device. Anker includes a remote with purchase as well.
Anker’s new soundbar is likely best suited for a bedroom or secondary viewing space, it’s most certainly not going to have the kind of bump to satisfy audiophiles. But for other use cases, particularly improving your TV’s mediocre built-in speakers, this one is worth a look.
