Fitness-focused, sporty earbuds usually come with one of two solutions for staying in your ears: they have wingtips to help anchor them in place (as seen recently in the Sennheiser Sports earbuds), or there’s a wraparound earhook a la the Powerbeats Pro. Anker opts for the latter with its new Soundcore Sport X10 earbuds. The $79 X10s have a bass-forward sound signature, IPX7 sweat and water resistance, and up to eight hours of continuous battery life (or 32 including case charging). They are now available in black or white, with a red color coming later.

Anker says the swivel earhook allows you to “adjust the wearing angle to ensure the earbuds nest comfortably in place to prevent them from falling out during vigorous workouts.” The earbuds weigh 4.4 grams each, much lighter than the Powerbeats or other competitors like the JBL Endurance Peak II

Thanks to the silicone rotating ear hooks, these earplugs fit in a compact carrying case.

While the Soundcore X10 earbuds are designed to be heavy on bass out of the box, Anker says you can disable the default “BassUp” EQ setting using the mobile app and choose from over 20 other presets if you want the prefer something more balanced. According to the company, the X10s have “hybrid noise cancellation” to eliminate background noise when you’re out running or exercising. And there’s also a transparency mode for situations where you need to amplify your environment.

Their IPX7 means the X10s can be safely “rinsed off under a tap or fountain after a workout”, and with a total of six mics onboard (along with a wind-reduction setting), Anker seems confident they’ll handle voice calls quite a bit. handle. good.

For $79, you lose features like wireless charging, in-ear detection, and other extras that typically command a higher price. And their 10-millimeter drivers are probably no match for the Powerbeats Pro or other high-end fitness buds. In any case, you get fast charging, so that the earbuds have two hours of playback after just 10 minutes on the charger.

Based on the performance of other Soundcore earbuds, the X10s should deliver energized, gym-ready sound at a solid price. And the ear hooks should keep them right where you want them, no matter how intense your workout.
