The Space Q45 headphones are Soundcore’s latest over-the-ear noise canceling headphones aimed at helping you to carve out personal space no matter where you are. Soundcore claims they feature a next generation acoustic architecture that blocks out a wider range of noise, up to 98%, and is SGS certified.
If you’re looking for effective noise cancellation in a smaller form factor, be sure to check out our review of the Soundcore Space A40 earbuds.
I tested these out with my white noise machine set to maximum volume, and the Space Q45 headphones were very effective at cutting out the noise, pretty much on the same level as my Bose QuietComfort 35 II headphones, maybe just a hair less effective but I had to really listen to find the difference.
The Soundcore app lets you turn on Adaptive Noise Cancellation, where the headphones will listen for the ambient sounds around you and adjust the level of Active Noise Cancellation automatically.
You can also use the app to adjust the equalizer by selecting from one of Soundcore’s presets, or create your own.
The sound quality on the Space Q45 is great, with strong bass and clear mids and highs. Soundcore states that these headphones have new 40 millimeter double-layer diaphragm drivers, which seem to do a great job with music and podcasts alike. The headphones also support Hi-Res Wireless audio and LDAC. Also worth noting: the cushioning on the earcups is very soft and comfortable, too!
