Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro REVIEW: How are $150 earbuds better than budget models?

In this article, we will talk about the most expensive wireless earbuds I have ever tested. They cost $150. The name of these earbuds is Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro.

Of course, they are not the most expensive earbuds on the market, but they are definitely the most expensive ones I have tested. However, there are many other wireless earbuds, that cost much more, for example, Apple AirPods Pro.

Unboxing

Here we can see the first difference between Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro and budget earbuds.

Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro REVIEW: The Most Expensive Earbuds I Tested,

The box of Anker earbuds looks premium. It is quite big, and there is much information about the device on the box. For comparison, this is the box of $30 earbuds.

On the back of the box, you can read about the main features of Anker Liberty 2 Pro, such as Astria Coaxial Acoustic Architecture, up to 8 hours of playtime on a single charge, and 32 hours with a charging case, HearID Personalized Sound, Wireless Charging compatible and Crystal-Clear Calls. We will talk about all these features in details a little later.

Inside the box, we can see the internal structure of the earbud. On the right, there is a charging case, two earbuds, a user manual and other documentation, a USB C charging cable, 7 extra eartips of different sizes, from XS to L+, and three earwings. They are also different sizes: small, medium, and large.

You know, I can already understand why these earbuds cost $150. I haven’t listened to music yet, but the first impression of unboxing is great.

Design

So, before using Anker earbuds, you need to choose the right eartips and earwing for you. I have already done this.

You know, these earbuds are not compact at all. I have many budget earbuds, and all of them are smaller than Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro.

However, Anker earbuds are one of the most comfortable among all earbuds that I have tested. You just need to choose the right eartips and earwings for you.

On the outside of the earbud, we can see the Anker logo and an LED indicator. On the top, there is an L inscription and physical control button. On the bottom, there are charging contacts.

The microphone is on the front.

The right earbud is the same as the left one. This is not a surprise. However, the charging case was a big surprise for me.

It is also bigger than other budget earbuds – 75 by 55 by 30 mm. However, the biggest surprise for me was an opening method. You just need to slide the lid to open a charging case. It is very smooth and easy. I like it very much.

Inside, there is a lot of space for earbuds.

So, Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro are really big earbuds, and they stick out of the ears. However, they are still very comfortable. There are many eartips and earwings in the package, and one of them will suit you perfectly.

SoundCore app

You can also press on three dots in the top right corner to update firmware, read the quick start guide and user manual.

Just like other wireless earbuds, Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro has control functions. However, unlike other budget earbuds, Liberty 2 Pro has customized commands.

You can assign a function to double tap on the left and right earbud, for example, play the next or previous song, call voice assistant, volume up and down.

You can also assign a command on hold for 1 second. By default, it is called voice assistant.

However, the main feature of the app and earbuds themselves is the equalizer. There are default and custom equalizers, as well as equalizers from Grammy-winning producers.

You know, I tested some of them, but I don’t really like any equalizer from producers.

I think it is better to use HearID. Let’s talk about this feature.

HearID

HearID is the function of the mobile app. As you can see, it maps your personal hearing sensitivity at multiple frequencies and analyzes the results. HearID test takes about 3 minutes.

Before starting the test, you need to turn off any audio and do not change the phone volume.

Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro REVIEW: The Most Expensive Earbuds I Tested,

You just need to press on the screen when you hear the sound. When you can’t hear the sound, don’t press on display.

HearID is the most personalized way to customize the sound for yourself. From my experience, the sound is the best after HearID test.

Battery

Talking about battery life, Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro have 8 hours of playtime on a single charge, and 32 hours with a charging case.
