When it comes to headphones or earbuds, it is obvious that the first thing people want to know, “what is the sound like?”. The sound that emanates from the Liberty Air 2 was initially average to slightly above average when I first paired to my phone and listened to various types of music. It wasn’t until I downloaded the Soundcore App, updated the firmware, and set up the EQ options within the app, that I started to really appreciate the earbuds. The sound is clear and crisp, bass is punchy, especially if you set up the EQ with bass. I was absolutely happy with the quality I was getting from the earbuds.
The AirPods Pro sound is just a clear and crisp, with a good amount of bass. I will say that I am not an audiophile, and as such, I found no significant difference in sound music quality between the AirPods Pro and the Liberty Air 2 after having updated the firmware and setting a personal EQ in the Soundcore app. I will say that the bass was a little more punch in the Liberty Air 2, but I think that is just because it has an EQ you can personalize, while the AirPods Pro do not.
Winner: Overall, I would rank them a tie based on sound quality because both sound excellent, but if you also consider the price for the Liberty Air 2 (as low as $79.99) and compare to the AirPods Pro (as low as $199), I would give the edge to the Liberty Air 2 since they do sound great [especially after firmware update and personalizing the EQ].
Call Quality and Microphone:
I initially purchased the Liberty Air 2 earbuds to use in Zoom and WebEx meetings for my work. I have been quite impressed with the results. The “call quality” is excellent, I can hear everyone, and everyone can hear me perfectly [mic is excellent]. Aside from connectivity issues, I have never had a single person indicate that they had trouble hearing me during a meeting due to using the earbuds.
Cell phone quality is just the same as my Zoom meetings, I can hear the other individual just fine, and have never had a single person complain that they were unable to hear me. I will say that ambient sound does come in a little through the mics, but overall, the quality is excellent.
I have yet to use the AirPods Pro in Zoom or WebEx meetings but have used them on many occasions for phone calls. The phone call quality is clear, and the other party can hear me just fine. Mics are excellent and do an exceptional job of filtering out the ambient noise.
When comparing the two, I would have to say that the AirPods Pro definitely filters out more ambient noise because there have been some instances where people have asked me what that noise was in the background while using the Liberty Air 2, but not while using the AirPods Pro. I did a comparative call test where I had someone call me while using the Liberty Air 2 or the AirPods Pro: both provided excellent call quality, but the AirPods Pro did filter out ambient noise a little more. Although it made me think, is this slight difference was worth the price? I don’t think so because the Liberty Air 2 filtered enough background noise.
Winner: Call quality was almost the same, but the AirPods Pro did filter ambient noise a little more. A slight edge goes to the AirPods Pro, but is it worth the extra cost? An absolute and resounding no unless you work in a very noisy environment and must use your phone within your work setting.
I am not going to comment on how aesthetically pleasing the Liberty Air 2 are in comparison to the AirPods Pro, because both have a similar style (the AirPods do look a little cooler). When it comes to comfort, I have been in all-day meetings with the Liberty Air 2 and although you do get fatigued at some point, I did not find any significant stress associated with the all-day or most day wear.
In comparison, I have used the AirPods for listening to music around town or on phone calls (just as I have the Liberty Air 2). Although I find enough comfort in using the Liberty Air 2 for all-day work meetings, when comparing a similar time frame while listening to music, I would give a slight edge to the AirPods Pro since I do feel less “fatigue” than I do while using the Liberty Air 2.
Winner: Edge to the AirPods Pro. Worth the extra cost, I would have to give a slight yes.
The Liberty Air 2 do not offer any active noise canceling, while the AirPods Pro do. I am not going to go into extreme details since we are basically comparing apples to oranges. The level of sound reduction is excellent within the AirPods Pro while the active noise canceling is “on.”. Don’t get me wrong, the Liberty Air 2 does provide “enough” sound reduction since the earbuds and tips do fit into your ears, but there is no comparison since the AirPods Pro do have an active noise canceling option. To be honest, I do enjoy the noise canceling that the AirPods Pro provide, but the level of noise canceling is nowhere near the noise canceling I have experienced with over the ear headphones with “true” noise canceling, but then again, that too would be an unfair comparison to the AirPods [similar to trying to compare the AirPods to the Liberty Air 2].
Winner: AirPods Pro since they do cancel noise, while the Liberty Air 2 only reduce noise.
Liberty Air 2: easily get 7 hours from each earbud. I can go through a good day of meetings with just one earbud, then switch to the other if needed.
AirPods Pro: From continued use, the most I get is about ~4.5-5 hours with noise canceling on, and a little more with a combination of noise canceling on and off (have not tested fully noise canceling off).
Winner: Liberty Air 2, but I would guess the battery life would be similar if they offered active noise canceling.
Which do you go with? It highly depends on your use. If you just want to use for the earbuds for phone/Zoom calls or to listen to music, go with the Liberty Air 2. If you really care about the noise canceling that is available and extra comfort (slight extra comfort) of the AirPods Pro, then go with them. I purchased the Liberty Air 2 for $79.00 and the AirPods Pro for $160 (open box). Is more than twice the cost justifiable? Absolutely not, especially considering that the lowest price as of now (9/1/2020) is around $199 for the AirPods Pro. If I had been able to make this comparison before purchasing the AirPods Pro, I would have gone with the Liberty Air 2 earbuds instead. The AirPods Pro do not significantly outperform enough to justify the cost, unless you are really want the noise canceling option. If noise cancelling is what matters to you, I would recommend over the ear headphones, because although the AirPods Pro do an excellent job of canceling noise, they do not compare to larger headphones. Overall, the Liberty Air 2 earbuds are an excellent value for everything that you get out of them especially considering (to me) that they perform on a similar level as the AirPods Pro.
While writing this review, I decided to tackle the Zoom situation and all-day or most-day use in zoom meetings.
Zoom meetings (9/2/2020):
I decided to test out the AirPods Pro for Zoom meetings and made sure that I used them for days where I am in meetings for most of the day. I will say that since I know that the AirPod Pros will not last a full day, I decided to charge them up during breaks in order to be able to use them for a duration similar to the Liberty Air 2.
I will start with comfort, because this is where I noticed a difference. As I indicated above, I felt there was a slight edge that I gave to the AirPods Pro, but after trying a full-day’s work of Zoom meetings I would have to give a stronger edge to the AirPods Pro for comfort. After 6+ hours of “continued” use I definitely noticed less fatigue with the AirPods. I will say that the Liberty Air 2 are good enough to wear all day, but I did notice more comfort with the AirPod Pro.
Another thing I noticed, I was able to use both AirPods Pro earbuds due to the ability to let in ambient noise, something I was not able to do with the Liberty Air 2. While in Zoom meetings I usually wear only one earbud while using the Liberty Air 2 since my voice sounds muffled (to myself) with both earbuds in place, but was able to use both the AirPods Pro earbuds during meetings which made it easier to hear the meeting.
Another difference I noticed in Zoom meetings, and it might be due to the computer I am using, I was unable to control the volume effectively on the AirPods Pro. The lowest setting I can set (volume of 1) before no sound comes in (volume 0) is still a little too loud for my preference. So, to me, it seems to be an almost all-or-nothing situation with regards to sound when using the AirPods Pro, which I find a bit annoying because I definitely do not need the sound that loud. I have checked settings, adjusted volume both on the computer and within Zoom and find that nothing allows me to set the volume in a way that I prefer. This is something I have no issues with, with the Liberty Air 2.
After this second test, what do I recommend? I think that the performance/cost ratio of the Liberty Air 2 are worth the purchase, because the AirPods, although an excellent piece of equipment, definitely do not outperform as one would expect from a significantly higher price.
Comfort is great, can wear for hours at a time will little to no ear discomfort. Again, using the proper fitting ear piece these do not fall out. Battery life thus far has not been an issue. While I have not tried to get the full 7 hrs in one play yet, I have been using for 2-4 hrs at a time with no issue. Drop them back into the case and they are back to full in no time at all. Speaking of the case, in the 2 weeks I have used I have only charged the case twice. Once upon receiving for the first full charge, and a couple days ago to top off again. Even after a week's worth of usage the case was only down to around 50 to 60%. Case supports wireless QI charging and it works well. Also has USB C on the bottom and that works as intended also.
Sound quality is really good, not disappointed at all. The bass is great, while these do not produce that "Subwoffer" super deep bass like you hear in cars that rattle as they drive by the bass IS pronounced. These handled 90s-2000s Rap quite well. Mids and Highs are clean and crisp even at max volume. Vocals have no distortion as well. In general I would say these are not totally Ear monitor quality like you would see being used during a live performance, for the price you won't find yourself complaining.
Call quality is clean and crisp, no issues. While not the main reason I purchased these, if needing to make / answer a call while wearing I do not expect any issue.
Touch controls do require a bit of time to get the hang of. You need to hit right on the middle of the bud to get the proper response, but after 3 to 5 tries I got the hang of it pretty quickly. The "Touch" does not have to be all that hard, you do not need to pound them or jam them into your ear to get a response, just a nice little double tap (or long hold) depending on what action you are wanting. It is nice that the Soundcore app allows you to remap the touch controls. You can change how each bud responds to taps. While the commands are limited to a few options, Next track, Previous track, Pause, Volume up / down and Google / Siri assistant, these are pretty much all I need anyway.
While I did mention briefly the charging case a few more things to discuss. I purchased the White buds, and as such the case is a bit of an off white with a bit of an eggshell / grey fleck type finish. Why I mention this is because I expect the case to get dirty / show dirt since it is quite a light color. While not slick per se, it does move around a lot in pockets, and I imagine would slide around quite a lot in a purse or bag. It is what I consider to be on the small side, which is fine but I would consider it
