Anker’s Soundcore Space A40 true wireless earbuds feature active noise-cancellation and ridiculously long battery life when you use the included charging case. I picked up a pair almost a month ago and I’ve used them to listen to an audiobook and a half, plus a fair amount of music and I have yet to recharge the case.

The earbuds have a list price of $100 but they’ve been on sale for under $60 pretty regularly. And right now they’re at the lowest price I’ve seen yet: Amazon is selling the Soundcore Space A40 earbuds for just $49.

At this price, don’t expect sound quality that will rival the best earbuds from Apple, Sony, or others. But to my ear they sound pretty good.

My only complaint is that they don’t seem to have any way to detect whether they’re in your ears or not, so removing an earbud will not automatically stop playback of whatever you were listening to. You have to tap the earbud to stop or start playback every time.

Here are some of the day’s best deals.

  1. I actually just bought and returned those soundcore headphones based on reviews that ranked them highly for sound quality. As a music producer, I would strongly disagree. I ended up buying a $70 pair of sony wireless earbuds that have pretty solid sound quality, though they don’t feel as nice. If you want something that sounds better than the soundcore A40 but is still cheap, I tried the Tagry X18 for $25, and they have a feature set that beats earbuds at 3x the price. Highly recommend them instead of the soundcore.

    1. Huh, did you install the Soundcore app and try adjusting the EQ?

      Admittedly, I’ve mostly been using mine to listen to podcasts and audiobooks, but I’ve found them to be at least as good as my Pixel Buds A-Series, while offering much better sound isolation (and somewhat acceptable active noise cancellation, given the price range, although the transparency and “normal” modes aren’t great).

      1. So, my hands are tied from using EQs with any headphones at the firmware/hardware level. I wouldn’t be working with the “real” frequencies I would be hearing on other equipment. For example, if I boosted 300Hz and below by +6db using an EQ to help the bass come through more on my headphones, on other speakers or headphones the bass would most likely sound overwhelming and drown out the other sounds.

        For people who aren’t working with audio though, it’s probably a good solution.
