Pro Earbuds for only $130?? - soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro
I bought these with high expectations, and I was not disappointed! They have a great sound, including the bass. I love the noise cancelling feature and the app that customizes to your hearing and like! For the price you can not beat them! I also own a pair of beats wireless earbuds, and the Liberty Air 2 Pros give them a run for their money!
Received the pink for my birthday. Love the color! And I love the sound and the excellent ANC. Wow!! My dog’s high pitched barking sounds like it’s coming from a back room of the house when he’s about 15 feet away!! The Soundcore Signature sound was great. However, after the Hearing ID testing, I promise it sounds like I’m in the studio with Bruno and Anderson Paak!! (An Evening with Silk Sonic sounds even more amazing!!!) The bass is perfectly balanced and the middles come straight through. I even notice more of vocals!! I’m naturally sensitive to trebles, so I tweaked that a little on the App.
The bonus for me is the ability to wear only one. I really like this option at night because I sleep very hard. The touch controls are sufficient for what I need. According to some YouTube reviews, the Liberty 3 pro is supposed to have an even better sound quality than these. I cannot imagine how.
Finally, I have no clue why anyone would pay more for the other brands when Soundcore delivers an excellently catered sound experience!!
As someone who has had severe hearing loss, it goes without saying that I have a hard time with hearing. Shopping locally wasn't an option living in such a small community. I spent Hours (literally) watching YouTube reviews on different over the ear headphones. I had a budget of $150 CAD.
Many of my searches brought me to Soundcore. More specifically the "Life Q30". I found a link on Amazon for $109 plus shipping, I sent it to my wife who not only had found free shipping but an additional $10 off! SCORE! $115 to my door. 9/10
After a short charge they were easy to Bluetooth pair. 9/10 on ease for Bluetooth pairing. I have still to figure out the "easy NFC quick pairing 3/10".
Listening to my wide ranges in Genre was amazing with the first use. I figured out the Noise canceling easily 10/10. The on headphones volume gets a 6/10 ( very loud plastic click at the press of any of the buttons on the headphones). The location of buttons on the right ear cup work well for thumb operation. As well as the "touch" for changing between Noise Canceling modes.
Back to my hearing. Left ear is at about an 85% hearing loss. Right is maybe 7-10% loss. I am able to adjust balance for an "optimal" sound that I even find turning the volume down, not for sound distortion, but just because the over all high volume.
Until you have had hearing loss like I have, you might not understand how grateful I am to have found a great affordable sounding headphone.
The "Transparency" mode without music is actually great compared to what I'm use to. I actually hear more from my bad side while using the Transparency mode. It's great!. The audio is digital, it reminds me a little of how a hearing aid would sound (similar).
One of the biggest benefits of the headphones is I can pair them with my TV, as my wife watches at a lower volume that I can't hear on the TV, I can pair the Q30's at the same time! We both get the volume we need! I NO LONGER HAVE TO HAVE THE TV SCREAMING FOR ME TO HEAR IT!!!
Oh!!! Almost forgot. The Bass ......... WOW! ABSOLUTELY Incredible!
Thank you Soundcore!!!
Bass is incredible! Nice case and recharge is simple and quick. Volume touch control doesn’t work so well. I replaced the Apple AirPods with the Anker and am glad I did.
In short. A good set of buds with lots of features and great sound but not suitable for long term wear in my ears.
The long story. I bought these hoping for an affordable headphone with good sound and 6-8 hours of wearability as an option to Apple EarPod and AirPods, which I cannot wear.
They pared right away. Were recognized by the app and updated all with no problems.
The sound was on par or better than most headphones I have used and the noise canceling was acceptable.
I love the automatic pause when you take one or both of the buds out of your ear.
I used the factory installed medium tips. The sound testing in the app called then a good fit but I couldn’t go but a few minutes without feeling like the buds were slipping and had to reseat them in my ear. Additionally after about 2 hours I started to notice discomfort in my tragus and befor 3 hours I had to take them out because of the pain.
Possibly the unsecure feeling could have been fixed with a larger tip, though normally I use a medium to small tip for my smaller ear canal, but I don’t see a solution for the discomfort and pain I had with long term wear.
