  • Good ANC for a competitive price
  • Many ear tip sizes for finding the best fit
  • Easy-to-use, helpful app

Cons

  • Treble-heavy sound
  • Large case
  • Passthrough sound feature isn’t as good as Apple’s

The true wireless Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro earphones aren't perfect, but they deliver a sculpted, bass-forward sound signature and some of the best noise cancellation we’ve heard below $150.

  • Effective ANC

Pros

  • Lightweight, comfortable
  • Very good sound quality
  • Active noise canceling
  • Good headset performance for calls
  • IPX4 water-resistance
  • Ambient and transparency modes
  • Decent battery life with USB-C and wireless charging

Cons

  • If you don't get a tight seal, noise canceling and sound suffer (included ear tips may not work for some ears)
  • Transparency mode isn't as good as that of AirPods Pro

The Anker Liberty Air 2 Pro are decent for mixed use. They're decently comfortable, have a stable fit, and offer a great ANC feature that can help cut down bus or plane engine rumbles as well as ambient chatter around you. While not everyone may enjoy their bass-heavy sound profile, they have a customizable sound profile thanks to the graphic EQ and presets in their companion app. However, their battery performance is disappointing and may not last through your workday or commute.

Anker is a well-regarded name in audio hardware, not quite attracting the audiophiles but attracting a strong following for its no-nonsense products. The Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro earbuds carry on that theme, delivering great audio, customizable EQ settings, and a really good battery life in a tidy package.
