SoundMAGIC send us the occasional set of headphones, and we’re only too willing to review them – especially as many of these sets feel ideal for gamers. The P60BT ANCs are no exception to this rule.

A wireless noise-canceling set of over-ear headphones, after our extensive time with them we found them to be a well priced set that are also well placed to appeal to a wider number of gamers. Priced at just over £100, we were pleasantly surprised with what you get with the P60BT ANCs.

Using Bluetooth 5.2 for wireless connectivity, these are compatible with SBC, AAC, aptX and aptX HD codecs. One downside is no multi-point connectivity, but for many users this won’t matter in the slightest.

Especially as the sound these headphones pump out is great for the price. Delivered by a pair of 40mm dynamic drivers with Neodymium magnets, they can blast out some serious volume – but also the noise cancelling is perfect, meaning these are perfect for long gaming sessions where you need to fully escape the real world.

The actual design of the headphones is merely functional rather than exciting however. There’s a solid amount of padding here considering the weight of 311g, and there’s a concealed headband adjustment mechanism that never gets in the way too much. 

There’s a touch controlled patch on the outer surface of the right earcup too, which allows you to control volume, play, pause, and so on. It’s not hugely intuitive, but it’s nice to have. 

The addition of a 3.5mm analogue cable with boom mic attached is great for gaming too, working flawlessly when we played a few extended online sessions. 

Another thing many gamers will appreciate is the battery life of these headphones, which is far above average for its price class. Running for 50 hours without the noise cancelling (and 45 with) we found we didn’t need to charge these for weeks when used only for gaming.

Then there’s the quick-charge feature, which means a mere 10 minutes of charging – so enough time to grab a cuppa and a biscuit, basically – gave us a significant five hours of juice to play with. Impressive.

Ultimately, there’s no denying the SoundMAGIC P60BTs offer great value for what you get. There are a number of headphones that offer similar features but for slightly more cost, yet for gamers we feel these are your best option in this price range.

The good

  • Great value for money
  • Superb battery life
  • Lots of gamer friendly features

The bad

  • Bland design
  • Touch control takes some getting used to
