The future is wireless earbuds and you don’t have to spend over $200 on an AirPod pair to grab the time of a pair. Anker’s Soundcore Liberty Air True Wireless Earphones made their debut at half the price of Apple’s AirPods at the end of last year; today you can save on their purchase an extra $23 and pick them up at Amazon for just $56. The discount was due to a $59.99 fall indirect cost plus an additional $4 discount from Amazon. This is the first time these earbuds have fallen it low since their launch, although the discounts actually only apply to the white version with the black model still at $79.
The Liberty Air provides 5 hours of playback per charge and the portable carrying case will potentially provide 15 hours of additional use time. You can use one headphone at a time, or both, and crystal clear calls are made by the noise-canceling mic. For monitoring music playback, answering calls, or calling your phone’s voice assistant, there are integrated touch controls on the earbuds. The earbuds are also rated as IPX5 to ensure that they are not ruined while you’re working out or when you’re caught in the rain.
The Liberty Air is ranked 3.8 stars from nearly 500 reviews at Amazon, existing owners rate them equally.
