Let’s be honest, the names “Anker” and “Soundcore” are definitely not among the first that come to mind when trying to make a list of the best wireless earbuds money can buy. But if you’re seriously considering a purchase in the Apple-dominated category for the holidays, you’re probably thinking about more than just brand recognition and bragging rights to your friends.
The value for money equation might just be the most important factor to consider, and in this area a number of Anker Soundcore brand products are quite difficult to match, let alone eclipse. This is especially true during Amazon’s extended Black Friday 2023 festivities, with the Liberty 4 NC currently costing $30 less than usual and the Liberty 3 Pro going $90 below its list price of $169.99 in a total of four different color options.
As their names make abundantly clear, these Pro headphones are older but premium than the ‘classic’ noise-canceling model, incorporating a host of cutting-edge technologies to ensure a premium audio experience. We’re obviously talking about the most advanced kind of active noise cancellation that Soundcore has to offer, but also things like ACAA 2.0, 3D Surround Sound, and HearID Sound coming together to get the most out of a huge 10.6mm dynamic driver.
Of course, the Liberty 3 Pros themselves are neither very big nor very heavy, tipping the scales at just 6 grams (per bud), which doesn’t stop these lower-priced AirPods Pro 2 rivals from delivering up to at a mind-blowing 32 hours. of playtime (with their wireless charging case naturally factored in).
In case you’re wondering, Amazon’s Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro Black Friday discount of 53% matches the e-commerce giant’s Prime Day fall deal from last month… while no longer requiring a Prime subscription or anything else like that. It’s quite difficult to find an equally sophisticated alternative from a different brand at a similar price right now, mind you, although Samsung’s Galaxy Buds FE certainly come close in terms of capabilities while still costing incredibly cheaper.
