The Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro True Wireless Earbuds seem too good to be true. They offer a wireless chargeable case, ANC, personalised sound, long battery life and all for half the price of AirPod Pros.
I got the Sapphire Blue version and I love the look of them! Each earbud is around 5.2g, and have a secure fit. The fit is especially good for long periods of use, as there isn’t much pressure on the sensitive parts of the ear.
Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro True Wireless Earbuds Review
They are held in place by magnets inside the case. The case is opened with a slide-out lid, avoiding flappy case lid syndrome. It’s a bit chunkier than its competitors, but I found it fitted perfectly inside my pocket. They offer touch controls, which can be configured on the app. There are no hi-fi audio profiles, with Soundcore sticking with SBC and AAC. So the Shanling M6 Pro wasn’t able to offer much help.
Installing the Soundcore app allowed me to seamlessly connect the Air 2 Pro to my phone. I found the Bluetooth 5.0 connection stable and was able to leave my phone and walk around.
I found the call quality was excellent, with a lot of background noise being cut out by the Air 2 Pros. The earbuds have around six hours of battery, with the case giving them another 23 hours. You can USB-C charge the case, to give you a three-hour boost in 15 mins.
These produce a nice full sound. Though I feel they could go lower in the base, the mids and highs come through clear and crisp. There are a couple of EQ tweaks you can make to get the sound you are after. Active noise cancelling works perfectly for my needs. In a car, on a train/bus, the transport profile does a great job at cutting out the low rumble of the engines.
There are a couple of ambient modes to allow sound through, a full transparency mode and vocal mode. The vocal mode works well, with voices coming through. The full transparency mode sounds very artificial and I’d much rather just not listen to music at all.
Overall for the cost, the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro True Wireless Earbuds are a fantastic purchase.
