As the capitalist bonanza of this festive season is well under way, everyone is eyeing up the extensive ranges of gadgets and gizmos, headphones and headsets will be sitting at the top of many people’s gifting wish lists. Whether you’re gaming, watching, or listening this year, getting a bargain is a primary concern and Soundmagic are doing their best to sew up the sector, adding the P60BT ANC to their budget-focused lineup.
Taking a leaf out of Sony and Bose’s books, the P60BT ANC comes with a chunky hard case to rest in when they’re not on top of your head. This adds to the premium feel of the headset, and despite the budget pricing of just £130, the case is built like a tank so I had no worries about throwing it in the bottom of my rucksack. It’s not small though, and bigger than both the cases for the Bose 700 and the Sony WH-1000XM5, so if portability is a major concern you might want to look elsewhere.

The case not only plays host to the headphones themselves, but there’s also a removable Soundmagic soft case to hide things away in, and this is where your 3.5mm cable resides, as well as a USB-C charging cable and a PC audio splitter. It’s nicely put together, and you won’t lose anything when opening and closing it regularly. The headset itself connects wirelessly via Bluetooth 5.2 or 3.5mm wired, and happily works with a host of the most well-used codecs, as well as the high-resolution 24-bit aptX HD, which is perfect if you’re looking for the highest quality delivery of yourRead more on thesixthaxis.com
