Anker has been competing in the audio industry for quite some time now and is also successful in making its name known here. Before they turned to audio, Anker used to be known for their battery packs, but not anymore. Now, Anker has a range of audio devices, ranging from truly wireless earbuds to Bluetooth speakers. The Anker Soundcore Liberty Air was one of the earliest products we got from Anker and now let’s dive in to see what they offer.
As soon as you look at the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air, AirPods will be the first thing that will come to your mind. This is because of how similar they look to Apple’s product. On closer inspection, though, you’ll notice that there is one difference evident. The Anker Soundcore Liberty Air has silicone tips that offer noise isolation compared to AirPods open design.
Unlike the AirPods, the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air is made with glossy material, and they are black. Like the AirPods, you will also see a stem hanging down from the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air. The Liberty Air has its name branded on the stem which kind of looks a bit cheap and was a bad aesthetic choice. Other than that the design is pretty good though, as it seals the ears completely, making sure the sound from the outside doesn’t spoil your experience.
Looking for something even sleeker and more compact in terms of designs, you would love to have Lenovo Ideapad 330, a lightweight laptop.
One thing we like about the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air is how they have different tasks assigned to each earpiece.
From the left earpiece you will be able to:
- Call the device’s voice assistant
- Track Backward
- The right earpiece is responsible for:
- Call management
- Track forward
You also get different call controls when you are on the call. One of these controls includes double-tapping the earpiece so that the current call goes on hold.
The charging case
The charging case looks better in color than the earpieces because matte black has been selected for the colour choice. The case charges using a micro-USB port and will be able to provide enough juice to charge the buds up to 3 times. The buds will run up to five hours on their own before needing a charge from the case. The case’s own battery is indicated using a three-dot LED light.
The Anker Soundcore Liberty Air earphones are rated at IPX 5, which means they are water-resistant enough only to bear some sweat while you are jogging. It won’t survive a shower or a dive in the pool. Just be sure to wipe the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air clean before you pop them back in their case.
For those wanting to have a laptop with advanced features, Dell Venue 11 Pro is the best option because it is designed to work with dual batteries to function for a long time.
As we discussed earlier, the buds itself will be able to run for five hours, and then further three charges are given from the case. This will make a total of 20 hours of playtime. These will make the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air perfect to take with yourself to the gym or on a jog. However, they will not be an ideal choice to take on an intercontinental flight.
This is one big advantage the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air has over the AirPods. They block a lot of noise due to their noise-blocking design. They don’t let the outside noise disturb you, and when we checked the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air for ourselves, we had no problems listening to the music even in a busy room. When going on a walk, the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air will also block out most sounds of the street.
Anker Soundcore Liberty Air doesn’t only come at a much lower price tag than the AirPods; they also sound good. Yes, we do accept the sound could be better and in no ware compares to the Sennheiser True Wireless, but the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air sounds good in their price point. There is a good amount of bass here, and the clarity is decent. Since these buds seal off your ear, blocking sounds from the outside, the bass sound a lot better than the AirPods which is impressive considering the difference in price.
However, you will notice how the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air earphones will probably suffer when a lot of different instruments are being played as it becomes a little hard to distinguish one instrument from another.
The Anker Soundcore Liberty Air is great at doing what they do; they provide good sound, fit comfortably, offer noise-isolation, and the charging case looks and feels good. They are a great affordable option which will give you good enough sound at half the price of the AirPods.
There might be some problems when playing music loud as some sounds become a little hard to distinguish from another. Regardless, the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air is a great choice considering how affordable and the performance they deliver in this affordable price tag.
For gamers and geeks, there is one special version of a laptop called Acer R240HY, designed with multi ports including one for HDMI to uplift the gaming gameplay experience.
