Recently, the suspension of the service of “Xia Mi Music” has also caused a lot of noise. Facing this sudden “goodbye”, the hearts of users and netizens are very complicated for a while. Some have been persevering because of their years of companionship, and some feel that the excellent quality service has ended. The pity of the music is indispensable for expressing incomprehension. It is more of nostalgia for the past. The fundamental reason is our love for quality music. And “Xia Mi Music” is precisely because of the countless sincere love that makes today’s “closed” embarrassing.
The power of music is immeasurable, because it transcends physical limitations and hits the soul directly, so it can perceive, indulge, easily touch the heartstrings, and can generate empathy. I like to let music come to my ears in more and more moments and occasions, or the familiarity brought by the “I like” that has been checked, or the unexpected surprises full of unknown “personal recommendation” preparations. Every uncertain present has a certain pleasure-the pleasure of listening. Nowadays, the development of technology and life and work are advancing in the direction of “wirelessness”. As a listening tool and earphones that are bound to mobile phones, with the leap of mobile phones in daily situations, earphones are gradually eliminating wired physique. “Wireless earphones” have gradually become a must-have item.
I want to talk about the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro true wireless noise-cancelling headphones, also called “Soundcore noise-cancelling cabin”.
Soundcore is a sub-brand of Anker, focusing on the R&D and sales of headphones, speakers and other products. It has more than 20 million users in more than 50 countries on 5 continents. In less than three years since its establishment, Soundcore’s headphone category sales have increased by 1480%. To say that Soundcore’s most impressive true wireless headphones is the Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro. This product has won many praises and awards around the world, and it also gives Soundcore a certain position in the field of true wireless headphones.
Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro is the latest model in the Liberty series. As can be seen from the name, Air focuses on youthful fashion. The Soundcore noise reduction cabin gives me the feeling that is worthy of its name. The whole noise reduction cabin is very light. It is difficult to feel the word “weight” even if it is placed on the hand, and the contact with the palm further deepens this sense of lightness. , Because the surface of the charging case is attached with a skin-friendly material, it is delicate and smooth, and feels comfortable. Speaking of the feel, the Soundcore noise reduction cabin has a very decompression design-the charging case is opened by sliding the cover, with proper damping, and it will automatically open and close when pushed slowly to the middle, and it feels comfortable.
The design of Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro is concise and exquisite. The black appearance is very low-key. The body of the earphone continues to be lightweight, which means that it allows long-term close contact with the ear. In the past, in-ear earphones gave me a big obstacle to buying. There are generally not many eartips to choose from, and my ears are of small type, so this means that if my ears are in an awkward position in the size range of alternative eartips . The result is often that the earphones cannot be worn and fall out easily, but what I did not expect is that besides the eartips on the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro earphones, there are 8 different sizes of eartips in the box. I finally found it after trying a few models. Eartips that fit my ears, I believe they can also cover more people with different ear sizes.
Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro adopts a long earphone handle design on the appearance, coupled with the reasonable spatial arrangement in the charging case and the friction of the material, the earphone is very efficient and convenient to take out of the charging case, and correspondingly, put it back. The adsorption effect is also strong enough. The overall workmanship of the headphones is relatively compact, and due to the consideration of lightness, the body will have corresponding trade-offs in the selection of materials.
When pairing for the first time, you need to download the Soundcore App, which is not only used for pairing, but also provides additional functional support. The successfully paired Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro can achieve “open lid connection, close lid disconnect”, the connection speed on the iPhone is almost equivalent to AirPods, and it also supports “remove the headphones to pause playback, put on the headphones to continue playing”. In terms of experience, even users of the Apple ecosystem will not have an obvious sense of separation. In terms of operation mode, the gesture operation of true wireless headphones is essential. Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro supports:
- Tap twice left ear: next
- Tap twice right ear: play/pause
- Long press left/right ear 2 seconds: switch noise reduction mode (noise reduction/transparent/normal)
Gesture operations can be changed in the App according to your own usage habits. It is not difficult to find in the Soundcore App that the noise reduction mode supported by Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro is very rich. This is one of its main core functions, which is more than 5 in 1. Scene double-fed noise reduction.
As an important function of earphones, noise reduction creates a listening experience for listeners in a chaotic market without being disturbed. But as we have also said before, true wireless earphones, as a tool for binding with mobile phones, need to be considered The experience has long been derived from basic calls and entertainment in different scenarios such as mobile office, sports and even outdoor. Therefore, the actual demand for noise reduction should also be “eliminate the difference, listen to what you want”, this is the noise reduction “important features “.
Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro headphones are equipped with noise reduction microphones inside and outside. It is a common and correct way to give more accurate noise reduction effects by picking up two-way sound sources. It is precisely because of the existence of multiple microphones that Liberty Air 2 Pro It has a wealth of “5 in 1 multi-scene noise reduction” modes, including:
3 noise reduction modes
- Commuting mode: high noise reduction level, reducing low frequency noise. Commonly used scenes are airplanes, subways, trains, and automobiles.
- Outdoor mode: The level of noise reduction is medium, reducing low/medium frequency noise. Common scenes are roadside, coffee shop, etc.
- Indoor mode: lower noise reduction level, reducing mid-frequency noise. Common scenarios are offices, homes, gyms, etc.
2 transparent modes
- Human voice transparent: Amplify human voice while reducing low-frequency noise.
- Fully transparent: All sounds around you can be heard clearly to ensure safety.
In addition to these 3 noise reduction modes, in fact, the App also provides a “free adjustment” noise reduction level. Considering that different users have different feelings about different noise levels, if you want to get more comfortable ear pressure, you can adjust it freely. Choosing noise reduction is a good choice. The transparent mode is similar to AirPods Pro’s “completely transparent” mode and then amplifies the human voice processing to obtain the second transparent effect. In actual experience, the “human voice transparent” is more transparent than the “completely transparent” sound field. It is pure and empty.
In fact, our daily life trajectories are experiencing different noise environments. As the city wakes up, the number of vehicles on the road begins to increase, and people’s daily activities also start separately. Various sounds change with our own environment. Their frequencies Different, the noise in the office after going to work and arriving at the office is very different. One I need to be immersed in my own small world, while the other cannot miss the communication with the leader. This is the use of noise reduction and transparency, and is also the multi-coverage user experience pursued by Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro.
It is undeniable that noise reduction is a substantive need, especially for users who love music. Noise reduction gives a clearer listening. This kind of enjoyment closer to the sound you want to hear is not just the ear alone. , This is the power of music. On many occasions, I am keen to wear headphones, and then turn on noise reduction, as the drum beats, isolate the hustle and bustle of the outside world, and reap my own excitement. So music is not just that simple. In addition to the traditional listening experience, Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro also has its own unique technology and experience in sound adjustment, that is, HearID 2.0 voiceprint self-adjustment and EQ personalization that can be adjusted in the App. custom made.
We always say “acoustics is metaphysics.” That’s because everyone’s ear structure is different, which leads to different sensitivity to sounds of different frequencies. Therefore, it is difficult to form a standard when it comes to “sound quality”. This is the starting point of HearID 2.0 voiceprint self-regulation. To enable this function, you need to test your ears for a few minutes (note that you need to keep them in a quiet environment) to customize your audio based on the ear curve.
What does that mean? This means that after the earphones are detected, the audio curves of your left and right ears are obtained, and then the parts of the curve with weaker frequency perception are “compensated” to obtain a richer listening experience for the listener. Using the compensated curve as a custom equalizer mode, you can get a better sound quality experience. And it is worth mentioning that this “compensation” can be processed on the original compensation, and this part is more like an EQ personalized adjustment mode.
In fact, HearID 2.0 voiceprint self-adjustment can be used as the pre-stage of EQ personalized customization. The purpose of the former is to “diagnose”, and the latter is the “means” of compensation, that is, the way to play the equalizer. On many music players It is not uncommon to adjust the equalizer. Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro has built-in multiple modes with different styles to adapt to different genres and music types.
Therefore, it can be seen that Soundcore has great ambitions in the pursuit of sound. It is highly “customizable” and tries to make up for its inherent shortcomings through acquired technology, just to allow each individual of the headphones wearer , Have an experience closer to sound. As the essence of headphones, the sound quality of Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro itself is very good. Due to the use of ten-layer high-hardness coating, the divided vibration of the earphone diaphragm is effectively suppressed, the treble performance is excellent, and the low frequency details are richer. The overall sense of hearing is Very comfortable, it can be said that there are few competitors at the same price, and its sound quality has been recommended by 10 Grammy Award musicians.
Finally, in order to let the wearer get the most comfortable listening experience, what Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro has done:
- Up to 9 eartips
- Multi-gesture operation
- Multi-scene noise reduction experience
- Custom audio compensation
- Built-in equalizer adjustment
These rich experiences in wearing, operating, listening, and adjusting are all concentrated in this lightweight true wireless headset. Considering its price of less than $80, the price/performance ratio is certainly improved, but I also want to say, the experience of Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro is really good.
