[Amazon.ca] HOT: TaoTronics SoundLiberty 94 ANC TWS Bluetooth 5.1 Headphones [$69.99 after $20 coupon]

After the $20 coupon these turn out to be $69.99

Apparently, these have the ANC function - you need to activate the ANC mode by pressing and holding one of the touch buttons on them to get them going.

I've never used Taotronics, have always been an MPOW person, but was disappointed the ANC on the Mpow X3 and have been looking for a good but cheap ANC TWS pair for a while.

exactly like soundbeats and the touch control is horrible. This maybe the same since they normally just buy generic products and slap their logos on it.

and the sound sucks.

Sometimes they have multiple companies selling the same thing with a different logo.

For sound gears, go with brand name ones on sale. If you want budget noise blocking ways, go with noise isolating earphones.

Sony and Panasonic do make cheap earphones that sound ok. Go with those at least.

Added: I've tried Anker (praised and rated to be better than Tao), and they are painful to listen to.
If you're low budget, just go wired. For example: $35 Sony MDR-XB50AP/B will be at least x2 better than some random TWS earphones.
If this thing was $30, I wouldn't even have bothered to write this.
At $69, DO NOT get some random earphone.
Just get $69-99 wireless (ex: Jaybird Tarah), and you'll be happy enough.

I couldn't agree with you more. Stay away from these cheap Chinese branded headphones that uses low quality audio chips, poor software tuning and cheap hardware parts like battery and drivers that craps out in like 3 months. Some brand names in audio like Sennheiser, Sony, JBL, Samsung and Audio Technic have sales that if you pay a little more you're getting quality signature sound without having to break your bank.

I got my hands on the TaoTronics SoundLiberty 79 and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and value on these earbuds. If I have never tried any of these before I would probably had made the same assumptions as some of the comments here. But I now no longer see the need and value to go with a name brand since I also own two generations of Galaxy Buds and in my opinion these TaoTronics sounds and work just as good if not better.

The kicker for me is these TaoTronics comes with a 60 days free shipping return, Priority Customer Support and 18 months warranty extension when you register (which is easy) so they have better coverage than even from Samsung. The 94 is likely going to be even better since it comes with ANC while it is only called AI noise reduction on the 79, but even on the 79 it works great and block a lot of noise around. I have yet to put them to the full battery test but so far most reviews had said they last and last for the full 8 hrs.

If it counts, I think they may be related to MPow & Rav Power, since their promos and deals always lined up exactly on FB & Twitter so at least the same team may be running the PR stuff. All 3 brands now I have tried and love.

I'm looking for headphones that can connect to PC and phone at the same time to used with, similar to Jabra or Plantronics..

Is there any models available that connects to two bluetooth devices at the same time?

What you are looking for is a feature called Multipoint and it's pretty rare. There are a few listed in this article:

I'm not too sure I agree with you.

I only bought these because I ripped the cable on the Mpow earphones I bought 4 years ago for $30 off Amazon last week and I know it's days are now pretty numbered.

Other than that those earphones were perfect.

I literally use them to stream music off Spotify at a slightly noisy gym and am not using them as in-ear monitors to mix/produce or master songs.

Why would I pay upwards of $150 for some major brand name if I can get a reliable pair of TWS headphones reasonable ANC functionality and sound for a fraction of the price?

People are being too harsh with the downvotes. What sets these apart from the other soundpeats/mpow/dudios models regularly posted here is ANC

Curious how the ANC are on these. Like you, I tried the mpow X3 and found them pretty decent but you weren't happy with them.

Here's a review on them/variants, looks pretty decent:

I was mainly unhappy with the x3 because the ANC mics would pick up and amplify cross breeze to a deafening level while I walked outdoors. And it wasn’t because it was windy outside, it’s just while walking down the street.

Second issue was that they didn’t fit my left ear well, but that’s an issue pertinent to how my ear canal is shaped- no blame on the X3s there.

These Tao things sound pretty ok indoors and fit me better. We’ll put it to the test next week while I’m on one of my walkabouts downtown.
