Anker is no stranger to wireless audio, they are known for producing high-quality budget earbuds. So what’s so special about their new Vortex wireless headphones? Anker’s Soundcore Vortex headphones are the first ever over-the-ear headphones produced by Anker. And the first under Anker’s new unified audio brand Soundcore by Anker.

Design wise their sleek, fold flat design reminds me a lot of previous Beats models, but at $70 they are a fraction of the price.

The Vortex wireless headphones use Bluetooth 4.1 to connectivity and feature both synthetic leather covered memory foam ear cups and headband. Which should make them extremely comfortable to wear for long periods of time.

For sound, the headphones are powered by professionally tuned 40mm drivers with aptX HD sound. So sound quality should be impressive. For even better sound quality they can be used as wired headphones. They also have a built-in microphone with virtual assistant compatibility.


Battery life for these headphones is impressive. Anker touts 20 hours of playback time on a single charge. Right on the industry average.

As far as accessories are concerned Anker supplies a 3.5 mm AUX cable, Micro USB cable, and a hard-shell travel case.

With both a long list impressive specs and a budget price tag, the Vortex should be the first of many over-the-ear headphones we see from Soundcore by Anker.
