Priced at $130, the Liberty Air 2 Pro earbuds are half the price of the AirPods Pro, and are the first Soundcore headphones to offer noise cancelling functionality. There are three ANC modes, including Transport, Indoor, and Outdoor to adjust the noise cancellation levels.

Transport mode is optimized to cut down on the noise of engines, traffic, and public transport to reduce up to 90 percent of noise during a commute, while Outdoor mode targets low and mid-frequency sounds to minimize noise while allowing traffic sounds to come through. Indoor mode targets and cancels human voices.

The Liberty Air 2 Pro come in four colors: Onyx Black, Titanium White, Sapphire Blue and Crystal Pink. The earbuds offer a six hour battery life with ANC turned on or seven hours with the feature deactivated, and there's a USB-C/Qi charging case that adds up to 26 hours of additional battery life.

Six built-in microphones optimize voice for phone calls and aim to minimize background noise, and the earbuds are compatible with Siri at launch. There are built-in touch controls for music playback, which can be customized inside the accompanying app.

As for sound, Anker says that the earbuds are equipped with PureNote Driver technology with 11mm drivers for "accurate sound and clarity at all frequencies." A HearID personalized EQ feature is included to intelligently analyze each person's hearing profile to create a tailor-made sound setup. There's also an adjustable EQ with 22 preset sound profiles, and the earbuds come with nine pairs of silicone ear tips so that users can get the ideal fit.

The Liberty Air 2 Pro can be purchased from the Anker website or from Amazon for $129.99.

There are a ton of people like me that are no audio pros, can easily afford the best there is but don't due to the lack of appreciation for what they are sound-wise. Nice to see something a little different at a reasonable price point. If they do sounds decent and the NC is ok I would purchase them.

I look forward to reading reviews comparing the sound and EQ performance to the Air Pod Pros.

Black and Blue ones look really nice.
the “Soundcore” written on them looks kind of tacky to me though.

I get wanting to eliminate airplane engine noise and whatnot, but do people actually have noise cancelling mode on while jogging or walking around in public? I haven't been following the news... Do people not get mugged and attacked anymore?

I would be more concered about being run over by a car or bike. Being mugged isn’t really a thing here in Germany, might be different in other places.
