[Amazon.ca] Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Wireless $104.99

A well-reviewed pair of earbuds from Anker. Previous low is $95, but that was for Black Friday and they sold out fairly quickly.

This is the closest it's been since — usually they're $139 with a $20 coupon. This is likely the lowest they'll be for a while.

I hate when companies call their earbuds "noise cancelling" when they just mean "sound isolating".

I think these have active noise cancelation... Perhaps double check with them?

The "just a bud that you screw into your ear" designs rarely stay in my ear, so that part doesn't bother me. But "noise cancellation", to me, implies "active noise cancellation". Pretty much all earbuds with a silicon tip design like this have passive noise cancellation, so I hate getting sucked in trying to figure out if they are just bullshitting.

Nope, from the product description: "Customizable EarTips: Choose from 5 sizes of EarTips to find your perfect fit for enhanced passive noise cancellation and comfort."

I have been using aker's life p2 or whatever it's called and it's amazing for the price, I think I paid less than 60 bucks and noise quality is surprisingly good, also I love the fact it has actual buttons rather than touch pads.

Downside is that the case is larger than this Air 2, but it still fits in my small pocket in my jeans (lighter pocket?) so it's ok

If you're a loooking for something more affordable, I recommend looking for those first

This is one thing that I've realized over the winter, as well. Physical buttons are definitely a plus when you're wearing gloves (touch-screen gloves work fine, but when it's -20 out I've got the big gloves on when I'm walking the dogs)

If you are looking for something more affordable, I recommend Dudios. I bought https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07W927H29/ for $20 and it has been great.

I also got https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07RW3X5BS/ for $35 for my wife and she still uses it without complaints.

A couple of years ago I got Jaybird Run, which was retailed around $200 and I like my Dudios better.

I have the Liberty Air 1 and have been happy with the fit and sound quality. But the mic sucks on it even in a quiet environment. It appears that the mic is much improved on the Liberty Air 2. Here's a recent review (skip to 5:30) with a test on call quality.

I used to have the same issue until I discovered earbuds that have winged tips.
(The Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 for example). You put the earbud in your ear, the winged tip goes behind your <insert anatomy term here, refer to picture>,
and the winged tip keeps the earbud secure in your ear and you don't have to worry about it falling out. Plus it keeps the seal nicely :)

I can attest to those dudios that they work very well especially considering their price.

That's the tragus. My buddy has the Liberty 2 Pro and swears by them, but that's starting to get up into much pricier territory (though they've got a $40 coupon, so it's down to $159.99 on Amazon at the moment).
