Fit, Comfort & Isolation
Both fit well thanks to adjustable headband and soft large thick soft pads. ANC3000 does better with rotatable ear cups and well cushioned headband. So comfort wise, ANC3000 is better than ANC2000. As for isolation, it is average as over-the-ear headphones. Does block some environment noises but don’t expect too much.
Bluetooth 5.0 wireless range is wide. Both SonicGear Airphone ANC 2000 and 3000 perform very well in this department. Easily reach up to 7m with obstacles. ANC3000 is better with 1m extra here. Both of them are virtually in-sync between video and audio. Yes, this is great for movie, games and MV no doubt. And there is AUX cable for non-Bluetooth devices. By the way, you still can activate noise cancellation in this mode as long as it has battery power left.
How is the active noise cancellation performance? Well, they perform well for budget ANC headphones. The ANC can filter out 50% to 60% airplane/train engine sound. For your information, don’t expect it can cancel out others voices as ANC works best on cancelling ambient sounds.
As for battery life, it can play up to 24 hours with ANC off. And up to 15 hours with ANC turned on. Need 3 hours to fully charge. All these are based on its specifications by the way. As for microphone performance, it is great. Others can hear me clearly. Same apply to me too. It’s a pleasure to use it for phone calls.
Sound quality wise… Both of them sound the same to me. Bright sound signature is what you get when ANC is turned off. And balanced toward extra bass when ANC turned on. Therefore, do turn on ANC for the best experience. It should be turned on anyway else what is the point getting an ANC headphones right? Overall, they sound decent. Both treble and bass are well controlled. A nice companion for those who travel a lot on train, airplane and so on…
