Soundcore Upgrades its Flagship Earbuds with Advanced ANC
Soundcore today announced Liberty 3 Pro premium true wireless earbuds. Compared to the Liberty 2 Pro, the new model adds active noise cancellation (ANC) and improved sound performance. The HearID ANC system is "capable of automatically customizing noise reduction based on outside conditions while creating a unique, tailor-made sound profile by analyzing in-ear pressure". This is in addition to Soundcore's standard HearID technology, which can boost specific frequencies based on the results of a personal "hearing test". The earbuds have three different transparency modes for hearing important outside sound. Like the Liberty 2 Pro, the new model has a separate armature for high frequencies, in addition to a more traditional large driver for bass. Six microphones ensure clear outbound audio. The Liberty 3 Pro also support LDAC for high-resolution audio. They are 30% smaller than the Liberty 2 Pro. The buds support Bluetooth 5.2 and are rated IPx4 for water resistance. They come with four different size silicone ear tips plus four sizes of silicone ear wings for a custom fit. The buds can operate for eight hours at a time (six with ANC on). The case can add up to 32 additional hours, including fast charging for 3 hours of playtime in 15 minutes. The case supports both wireless and USB-C charging. The Liberty 3 Pro is available starting today, in four colors, for $170. Soundcore is a brand of Anker Innovations. (Hands-on photos below.)
