Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro review: $130 ANC buds

ਨੂੰ ਪ੍ਰਕਾਸ਼ਿਤ ਕੀਤਾ ਗਿਆ 11 ਮਾਰਚ 2021
ਦ੍ਰਿਸ਼ 86 977

The $130 Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pros do a lot of things well, but so do a lot of other earbuds at this price. It’s their competitive active noise cancellation and well-designed app that helps them stand out though.

    If you want extra authentic base and extra authentic volume then I suggest POWERAMP MUSIC PLAYER. I was worried about lower sound and lower base when I first ordered my Soundcore Spirit X2s until I decided to use PA player.

    The original Soundcore Liberty Air 2 actually have single tap controlls too, however they were added later after their release, so this might be the Liberty Air 2 Pro's case as well.

    I don't know why will you give airpods pro higher score as compared to galaxy buds pro when clearly galaxy buds pro have better sound stage and quality as stated by many reviewers and by you as well. Airpods may have better ANC, but shouldn't sound quality be given more weightage. Some times I feel since Apple products have that aspirational value (and somehow more so with Verge guys), that your reviews feel biased.

      Same with Sound, amazing sound and bass, but these have added anc, ambient mode, and more color options. If you don’t really care about such things like blocking out really good anc or ambient mode, then get the other ones. If you’d like anc, get thesen

    There's quality control issues with these people should be aware of. I had to return two before finally getting one that wasn't DOA. Also, the NC feature isn't very good when looking at competitive products. I do keep them around and use them, though, so I guess that's saying something.

    BECCA! Ok with that out of the way, I have a pair of these and for $130 they are not bad but if you can afford, especially with an iPhone, to get the AirPods Pro, go that route. ANC on the Liberty are 60% effective. They give you a ton of ear tips to try and make the fit but I went through all of them and couldn't. Mainly, the Liberty don't stick in very far. Sounds weird buy if you have a long length from the outside of your ear to wear you need the tip to fit nicely, so it seems like me, these will fall out a lot and almost every time your head is not still and vertical. I am 6'4" with a much bigger head than most people (New Era 7 3/4 fitted cap) so with those dimensions in mind, I might be the very very small minority of those who are out of luck. But with the medium tips on the AirPods Pro, don't have that issue at all.
