We were looking for headphones with which it would be convenient to practice in the hall: in-channel, with good sound and stable connection, autonomous in work. This is the main thing we usually want from wireless models. We stopped at ANKER Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro and we tell you what is special about them.
Quality made and stylishly packaged.
The TWS (true wireless) set of headphones has a thoughtful design and is made of high-quality materials – from packaging to case. Everything is very pleasant to the touch, modern and gives the impression of a premium product.

Case – beautiful and comfortable
We liked the design of the headphone case and the way to open the lid: it just moves up, just slide your thumb over the case. Material – non-marking, pleasant to the touch.
The sizes are not the smallest: in the pocket of trousers or jeans, the case, of course, is felt, but in the jacket or in the bag it will be invisible. To insert the headphones into the case, just bring each to its socket – magnets will pull it.
The case sticks out a little in your jeans pocket but fits easily into a small bag or jacket pocket
Charges quickly without wires and hold a charge for a long time
As the manufacturer indicates, the operating time of a fully charged headphone is eight hours. Thanks to the headphone case in which they are charged, the total time is 32 hours. In practice, We never managed to spend even half the charge, so the autonomy of work completely suits us.
Wireless charging is a very nice bonus because it is as convenient as possible. We have a universal wireless charging device for the phone, and the headphone case with it charges up to a maximum of two hours.

Gives a great sound
From the first seconds after turning on the music, a great sound is surprising: very dense bass, excellent high frequencies without any interference. This was achieved thanks to two drivers in the composition: Anker engineers were able to combine the dynamic and reinforcing drivers in one device and named the ACAA system (Astria Coaxial Acoustic Architecture).
The reinforcing driver details the sound, transmits high and medium frequencies, while the dynamic driver adds depth and shock. This is especially valuable in compositions with a lot of bass and a complex beat section. However, after a two-hour test on different musical genres, We came to the conclusion that in terms of sound, these headphones will appeal to listeners with different preferences. Thanks to the dynamic and reinforcing driver, the sound is detailed and clear, and the bass is deep
A big plus: in a special application, which we will discuss below, there is a HearID equalizer – it has 22 predefined sound settings for different music directions and allows you to manually adjust the sound. Also, the application claims the function of individual settings for the features of the auricle and personal perception of sounds. However, we did not notice that it significantly affected the sound quality after tuning.
Can be configured in the smartphone application
As we wrote above, to configure the headphones, you can download a special application, which is available for Android and iOS.
It has subtle sound settings – perhaps the main feature and the most necessary function. Through the application, you can update the headphone firmware and check the charge level, and each headphone has its own indicator. You can also configure actions when you press the button, which is located on each earphone.
Comfortable to wear
Headphones sit tight enough in the ear, but do not cause discomfort. Unlike wired in-ear headphones, they do not create a feeling of stuffiness after several hours of use.
Tests with a treadmill and other cardio exercises in the gym were excellent – the headphones will definitely not fall out and will not be lost. For maximum comfort, the kit has seven pairs of interchangeable nozzles, different in size.
Hold the connection stably
The headphones have a Bluetooth module version 5.0. This allows you to easily leave the phone in another room or move away from it in the fitness room for 10 meters – this will not affect the sound quality and connection. True, sometimes when connecting, second delays can occur.
Can be used as a headset
Headphones can be used as a headset for a smartphone – to make calls. According to the interlocutors, the voice is fairly well heard in relatively quiet places, but on a noisy street or in transport, of course, there is extra noise. Using as a headset for us is a secondary function of the headphones, so we were not upset.

What to look for
