AirPods Pro vs Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro | Battle of the Buds!

by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

This video is sponsored by sound Corps a division of anchor hey guys what is going on my name is Yin and today I wanted to compare the Apple earpods Pro with the sound core Liberty 2 pro this is a pair of headphones that have been endorsed by ten Grammy award-winning audio producers so today I want to stack it up against another pair of excellent earbuds the earpods Pro even though these devices are similar their prices are very far apart the liberties come in at a competitive hundred dollars less so I want to see what it offers when compared to the air pods huge shout-out to anchor for sponsoring today's video

But they're not making me promote their product all the opinions are still mine so if you have been thinking about getting a new pair of earbuds and you're wondering if there's a cheaper alternative and what Apple offers then this video is for you included it in the box with the liberties is the charging case for the headphones the earbuds themselves a USB a 2 USB C charging cable a bunch of textbooks and an absolute boatload of silicon ear tips now with the air pods Pro we get some literature we get the ear pods themselves a few silicon ear

Tips as well as the USB c2 lightning charging cable now when it comes to design these two headphones are quite different everything from the build materials to how the earbuds are shaped but either way both charging cases are super satisfying to close both of these have a parent reset button on the back which on the ear pods you can use to pair with non Apple devices and on the liberties it's next to that USB type-c port okay so now let's talk about how these headphones fit in your ear the ear pods come with three pairs of silicone ear

Tips where as the liberties come with a lot more plus wingtips now the silicone ear tips work a little bit differently on the air pots and the liberties with the air pods to just snap right off and the silicone themselves have like a little layer of mesh inside to help keep the speaker's clean and it snaps back on like so the liberties have a more traditional type of silicone design with a little plastic part sticking up for this to hook on to so if you have sensitive ears like me you may notice a little bit more fatigue during long listening

Sessions I do like how they come with wingtips in the box they've really helped them relieve stay in my ear when I'm moving around now my experience I have gone to the gym and ran with these headphones on they don't fall out and if you pay attention to which silicon size fits your ear then these are going to fit with no problem I will say with the air pods they are just a little bit lighter so when I'm running I don't hear my footsteps as much so if you care about that do keep that in mind the emember T's have what sound Corps calls the Astraea coaxial acoustic

Architecture that basically means the sound drivers inside of these earbuds are arranged in such a way that they do not interfere with each other your sound is gonna be louder it's gonna be more punchy you can feel the bass whereas on the ear pods they really do feel synthetic you can hear the bass but you can't feel the bass and that is where the liberties really excel SoundCloud claims that the sound quality is worthy of 10 Grammy award-winning audio producers and honestly I can't really argue with that I'm not an audiophile but these sound fantastic you can hear

Everything from the low to the high range whereas on the air pods you do lose some on the bass side however that doesn't mean the air pods sound bad now of course the big news with this year's air pods is that they have active noise canceling you can check this in the settings or in the control center on your iOS device you can press and hold on the stem of the air pods to get to this gesture to turn on and off noise cancelling and transparency mode now in my experience the noise cancelling is awesome it blocks out pretty much everything in the

Mid-tone range high pitches and very low pitches will leak through so it's not the best in the industry dude what are you doing if I see who are you can you not hear me but for earbuds they're very good and they can turn something like a noisy coffee shop into a productive workspace as soon as you turn it on you can focus on your music because it blocks out everything else while increasing the speaker volume mid-tones are very clear but the bass is lacking just a little bit like the previous versions of the air pods the bass is there you can hear

It but you can't feel it except you can hear better thanks to the noise cancelling inside the settings you also find an ear tip fit test this will allow you to test how each silicon ear tip fits inside your ear and whether or not that creates a good seal for the noise canceling and transparency features now with the liberties you can find all the customization options inside the sound core app available on the App Store here you can find all the settings for these headphones as well as a bunch of audio equalizers but I think the real big news here is the here ID personalization

Function think of it as a personalized sound a profile just for you when you run through here ID it will instruct you to give it feedback based on certain noises that you may or may not be able to hear with your ears for example if you can't hear certain high pitches or if you have hearing loss this essentially helps compensate for that to create an audio experience that is unique to you which i think is really awesome now I think one advantage the liberties have over the air pods is that you can customize the controls inside of the sound core app so there is a button

On top of each ear but that has what I call the classic one two three controls one for pause two for skip three for rewind but here in the settings you can actually customize them to voice assistant or volume adjustments super handy if you don't have a smart watch or you just don't want to reach for your phone every time you want to change volume alright now let's talk about the battery life of these two devices the air pods are coming in at 4.5 hours of battery using noise cancelling or transparency mode this supports wireless charging and has 24 hours of juice in

The case it does support fast charging five minutes of charging equals about one hour of use with the Liberty's we're seeing an extended battery life of eight hours per earbud and the exact same 24 hours in the case and the same fast charging as the air pods they're both good but with them liberties you might make it through a flight a bit easier than the air pots and fun fact the charging lights on the outside will show you which earbud is charging of course you get this info inside the control center on the pods within liberties you just get the

Total battery life now it is worth noting that the air pods Pro are compatible with the Iowa's 13 audio sharing feature where you can broadcast audio to two different sets of air pods at the same time but remember this is a feature of iOS not of the ear pods themselves so if you're trying to use this with a non apple device it's not gonna work both of these support the IPX for water resistance rating but I think the sound cores case is more water resistant because it just has a better seal in the ear pods case if you guys didn't know

That's how I killed my original pair of ear pods one day it went for a swim in the laundry but for God at scuba gear but I think both of these will be fine under sweat or a light rain so what do you guys think about these headphones personally I think the liberties are an incredible value because you can find them even less than what it retails for however if you are a heavy Apple user like me you'll probably reach for the air pods more often little things like the h1 chip or just make pairing and things easier not that as difficult with the Liberty's once you pair them the

First time they pair instantly every time after when you take them out it's just more convenient with the air pods overall I think the Liberty's provide an excellent value and incredible sound for the price features like the hear ID custom profiles a heavier base no audio latency makes it all around a solid pair of headphones however if you do decide to shout out that extra money for the air pods Pro I don't think you'll be disappointed at all the noise cancelling is fantastic integration with iOS is just seamless but you have to keep in mind those features come at almost

Double the cost be sure to come in your thoughts about these headphones down below again a huge thank you to anchor for sponsoring this video and I'll see you guys in the next one peace
