-Arrived in 2 days
-Fully charged in 2 hours (15 minute charge works wonders if needed)
-Work as earplugs (like full noise cancelling)
-great base immersions (higher tones have been reported as tinny but I don’t really notice)
-can go running and once twisted in are 100% reliable at staying in (first headphone I’ve owned like this)
-When not wearing the magnetic feature links as necklace
-lightweight with batteries optimally placed very close to the ear preventing tugging
-insanely fast connectivity to my iphone (like less than half a second from turnon)
Drawbacks (don’t care because these are so cheap)
-5hr battery (I actually think that’s good) but here is the catch... when the low battery warnings start you only have 30min left. Essentially this thing says it’s full until suddenly it’s 30 min from empty and that catches people (myself included))
-after hours of wear this type of earbud which is so good at sealing and staying in can begin to hurt
-the cord is grippy rubber and can cause the bud to be pulled out if you turn your head and it’s laying across your collar but occurs seldom
-when I answer a call on my phone screen it jumps to my phone and I have to switch back so instead answer using the headphone button
-my biggest gripe with this is how long I have to hold down the volume button before it skips to the next song, and likewise with going back a song
-the buttons aren’t very tactical and feel like low quality but work fine
Overall I love these things, they have design features which mean that I can integrate them hassle free into my daily routine.
They work best once you pair them to your phone or other bluetooth audio device. Until then I found them to be rather quiet. Now it's just like having another voice in my head, only a lot less critical of everything I do.
Update: When I noticed my battery started dying faster than expected I contacted Anker support and they were very helpful about troubleshooting and replaced the product. I now 100% recommend the product and other Anker products such as their power banks (have bought and use them regularly myself).
I bought this headphone three months ago and not happy with this product. I faced with these issues during this time:
1. Sound quality is like a 10 AUD headphone.
2. Many times playing musics have been stopped for a few seconds even when the distance with my cellphone is less than one meter!!
3. I stopped using this headphone during gym, since the wire between right and left headphone is long and is not adjusted properly.
4. I couldn't configure it on Windows 7 and some Linux OS but no issue on android and IOS.
My suggestion would be spend more money and buy a good one otherwise go for a cheap headphone with less than 10 dollars.
I was looking to re-buy them but couldn't justify/afford the price tag. Then I was like oh yeah there's Amazon in Australia now. So I had a look and I found some $35 earphones by SounPeats (https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B079PQZ5PS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and I was like I'll give it a go for $35. I was so impressed with the value when I got them. But the sound quality was lacking.
Anyway, I told my friend he should get some too. He was skeptical so I went on Amazon and saw these Anker Soundbuds. I've got an Anker speaker and it has lasted me for like 5 years and I have not been gentle with it (traveled all across Europe and South America with them) and that was a bargain as well. So I got the earphones and was gonna give my friend the shitter ones.
These Earphones are SOOOO GOOOD. Great sound quality and the value is insane. I would recommend them to anyone wanting near earphones.
Love the magnetic snap on the aluminium ear buds. You’ll easily get the perfect fit with the different rubber tips included. It also has a nice attachable clip for your clothes so that the wires stay where you want it to (hardly ever needed it though).Battery lasts as advertised. Charges quickly and has a pouch too.

UPDATE: No longer charging! They've only lasted 4 months, and now regardless of cable or charger, it no longer charges. For this it get marks down to 2 stars. These are still easily one of my favourite headphones I've owned but to be broken already is a shame.
To test this earphone I have installed call recording app and made a lot of calls to my wife in various conditions ranging from quite to noisy background, indoors and outdoors. Every time she said my voice is clear. Certainly there would bit noisy when you are in a noisy surroundings but the plus is that your voice would be clear. I later listened to all my recordings and found the voice clear and audible even in the tests where I spoke very softly.
My second big requirement was noise isolation or cancellation. These earphones come with isolation. I was a bit skeptical before buying it but I can tell you that the isolation works wonders. The ear bud that came fitted with it, fitted perfectly in my ear and lowered the background noises significantly. The isolation is very strong that it took me little time to adjust to that. While calling I do not feel comfortable with that much isolation where I hear my voice much louder so i loosen the ear buds a little (tip for you). The benefit of this that you start listening at much lower volume which is very good for your ear.
I use the earphone mostly for audio books so I need isolation which I mentioned earlier is very good and clarity. I can say from my extensive testing and usage that I am totally satisfied with this for my use. I also listen to music a little and found that the sound is very crisp and nice bass-y.
Battery life is ok.i expected better battery time. Since I used it extensively for testing and left it connected to my phone all the time, the battery lasted 1-1.5 days of usage which included standby time, talk time, music playing and few videos playback. I believe the battery is ok if not exceptional.
The earphone comes with 3 buds of each type (2 in total). 1 type of normal round buds and the other with an extra extension to offer increased grip. I used the one you can see in the product picture and found them very comfortable. I have wore it for extensive period of time and didn't feel tired or ache. Around the neck they site comfortably and lock with each other with magnet so they are secure and no chance of them falling off. They also come with a detachable clip and a small thing which I think can be used to tie the wires if they are big. But I found the size very right for me (I don't have a big neck :) ). The product is not heavy so you don't feel any burden on your neck. The left and right ear portions are very well built and look very decent when worn.
Pairing is pretty easy and fast. The controls are good. My only complain is that you have to give a little pause in between multiple pushes to increase/decrease volume. You cannot just keep pushing the button and expect the volume to change in multiple steps. In my other headphones, the buttons would play next track and you have to hold it for a while to increase volume (and vice versa for other button). But in these the good thing is the default operation of the button is volume and you have to hold the button for next track. The other way round is very inconvenient as you have to change volume more than changing the track and mostly i ended up changing track instead of volume.
All in all I am very very satisfied with the product and considering the price, I think it's a steal. Go for it!

I was a bit skeptical at 1st for the hooks, as I have never use it before, but Anker prove me wrong. It stays in ears perfectly and hold the headphone safe from drops. With Mpow and other brand, it drops every 2min and I have to rearrange it even though I had the perfect size.
Other brand had a bad microphone quality, where people hear me from distance, and I had to approach the microphone. This one is well made and I dont have to play around to get people hear me. It was a big concern because I often call with headsets.
Sound quality. Mpow make great headphone at small price, with a incredible sound quality. Where as Anker, this feels more like a calling/watching video kind of headphones. The sound quality is fine but far from great. listening to high quality music is a waste because it cannot go beyond that. Bass is little, present but not strong, but gets the job done.
sound quality 3.5/5
Overall this is still a very comfortable headphones that I will keep. it has good quality and long battery life, for everyday usage this is one to go. strongly recommend!
Sound quality 5/5
I realise these are sports headphones and i have used them for cycling but i also use them for work for calls, the only downside i have found is because i am quite a big guy ( 18.5" collar ) the cable isnt really long enough to have around my neck held together with the magnets when wearing over my polo shirt, so i have to have them inside against my neck, which is a niggle rather than an actual issue, a few cm of extra cable length would have made these perfect.
The only other issue i have is that the charge port cover doesnt sit flush on my set so i often catch it on clothing pulling it out from covering the charge point, now i havent used these in the rain yet but i would imagine this would be an issue if i did, i am going to contact anker support on this though and see what they suggest, no amount of bending it straight makes it sit flush so maybe i just have a duff one.
Cons: They drop Bluetooth connection drops every 15-20 mins - I've had Bluetooth headphones half this price that managed not to do this fine. They reconnect automatically after a second or so, but that still means you then have to press play again - annoying if you are at the gym or walking outside with gloves on. The buttons are too small to find with thin gloves on while outside in winter. Maybe it is my head-size but the cable seems too long to dangle down and too short to wrap over the top of my ears. I'm forced to tuck the cable into my collar, which then comes lose if I turn my head. If you leave the cable dangling then the control panel hits against your coat collar or your neck which isn't that annoying but that makes an very loud 'thud' sound in the ear bud. Also there is no 'low battery' warning, they just turn off. The battery last a decent amount of time.
I think if you are wanting headphones for sitting and listening to music then these are a great choice, it is where they excel. For going out and about I'd look elsewhere, personally I'd go for a 'hard frame' rather than dangling cable again.
