Anker almost always provides a playtime estimate for all of their speakers/headphones. Previously, it was stated that the testing was done while playing music at 80% volume. Now, it appears as though Anker has changed the way they test the battery life.
While I had noticed that Anker hadn't been listing the volume percentage lately, I just assumed that they were still testing it at 80%, but now is appears Anker has changed that benchmark to 60%. Keep in mind that it is still unclear if this is true for all new releases. The new SoundCore brand may be changing things up a bit... Who knows? Not us.
This information can be found under the FAQ section of the SoundBuds Curve listing on Anker's website.
I find this to be an interesting change. If I perform battery tests in the future, I will now test at around 60% volume instead of 80% so it is a better test of the manufacturer's claims.
What do you all take from this change? What volume do you usually listen to music at through your headphones/speakers? I'm curious to know.
