Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro, analysis and opinion

Soundcore has marked an opener with the launch of its most ambitious model. The Liberty Air 2 Pro comes to stand up to rivals such as the Apple Airpods Pro or Sony WF1000XM3. Here we analyze them and give you our opinion.

It is a smooth movement and can be done with one hand finally exposing the headphones that rest inside perfectly fixed thanks to an efficient magnetic system that ensures that each of the headphones keeps the charging contacts where appropriate.

Anker is a recognized manufacturer of batteries and charging systems. However, Soundcore, its sound division is not so well known and many will be surprised that an unknown brand dares to equip itself as equals with some of the best fully wireless Bluetooth headphones of the moment.

After making some approaches to the TWS headphone field, Soundcore has dared with the big game shooting with a high-end model that has little to envy of more than 100 euros more expensive models.

Modern and lightweight design that invites you to wear them

In the world of technology, it is becoming increasingly difficult to stand out from a huge number of virtually identical products in design and performance. But I must admit, these Liberty Air 2 Pros got my attention from the moment I took them out of their box.

Soundcore has sent us a unit with the finish in Sapphire Blue that has really enchanted me by the sophisticated air that gives it, away from the black and white manids, although it is also available in onyx black, Titanium White, and Crystal Rose.

Opening the Liberty Air 2 Pro case already occurs with both the charging case and the headset. It is a case of soft and rounded shapes that, by size and shape, recalls that of the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro that we analyze here, but instead of opening like a coach, in these the lid slides upwards.

The case is very light and compact, perfect to carry even in the trouser pocket without bulging too much. At the top stands out the brand's logo with a glossy black finish standing out over the almost purple satin blue of the case.

The only element that breaks the homogeneity of the case is the USB Type-C connector located on the back that serves as a charging point. Next to it, a perfectly integrated sync button that almost goes unnoticed at first glance.

On the front, just below the lid, we find three status LEDs that, equally well integrated to go unnoticed, tell us if the headphones are inside, as well as the battery charge level of the case depending on the number of LEDs that are turned on.

The headphones also share the same blue color, albeit in two different finishes. The most visible outer part sports a metallic satin finish as that of the case, thus delimiting the touch area and shows the name of the brand and its logo discreetly.

For the inner part Soundcore bets on the same shade of blue, but with a matte finish that makes it more resistant to skin contact. Its appearance and touch are very premium and, although plastic, it is appreciated as good quality material.

The Liberty Air 2 Pro opts for a cane-shaped design that flattens on the outside and with softer, rounded shapes as they approach the skin contact area.

On the inside of the cane outside the ear, we find the charging connectors and the side indicator (L and R). At its lower end, we find the main microphone for calls, while at the top is another microphone for noise cancellation and a tiny LED that is activated inside the box to indicate its status.

Practically hidden under the pad is a third microphone that provides additional information to the noise cancellation system.

In the end, we find silicone pads that help to improve the clamping of the earbuds inside the auditory ward while improving insulation with the outside leading to a more efficient passive noise cancellation.

We would have liked to find some somewhat more consistent pads since the included ones are very fine leaving most of the work of attaching the earpiece to ergonomics.

For a long time, these pads have only been given value when it comes to the comfort of use, but the arrival of noise cancellation systems has revealed that their importance goes further and contributes to improving the sound experience.

Good proof of this is the nine sets of pads that include these Liberty Air 2 Pros. Impossible not to find ones that fit like a glove.

With a very compact and lightweight size, Soundcore headphones are very comfortable to use and that's what I'm one of those who aren't used to being comfortable wearing in-ear headphones.

I must say that the Liberty Air 2 Pros have been comfortable for me for the first two to three hours, but after that period of time, the rigid part of the earpiece that remains inside the ear has begun to annoy me with constant contact.
