The Anker Soundcore Sport X10 Earphones have unique ear hooks that rotate up to 210°. Rotate to find the perfect spot for a secure and comfortable fit that won’t budge, even during intense exercise sessions.
Most ear buds fall out of my ears when engaging in physical activity at the gym etc. so have found that for sport use you really need some with ear hooks. The problem then was that ear hooks heavily restricts the product range and so compromises have to be made on sound quality, lack of noise cancellation and things like physical buttons. When engaged in a workout with hot sweaty paws, the touch control ear buds just don’t function in a positive or satisfactory way.
These by contract are great. Nice tactile silicon ear hooks, noise cancellation which works well and a physical buttons on each bud to control basic functions (do wish Anker could add Google/Amazon assistant control though).
Sound quality is also good with plenty of range, detail and bass. The final thing that makes it a great product is there is a physical grip around the edge of the bud which makes extraction/insertion easy when someone’s trying to converse!
Only minor negative which is a little surprising for a new product is the lack of wireless charging as this doesn’t appear to be supported (only a USB C jack).
Overall, sound quality on the Anker Soundcore Sport X10 Earphones are very good but quite bass heavy out of the box. I found it easy to tweak in the app. Noise cancelling is OK, just about does the job especially combined with the wind noise setting being switched on. They are comfortable and secure with the ear loops. Pairing was straightforward as is charging with the USB C cable.
