Review Summary

Anker is now competing with big tech companies by providing superior sound quality and stuffing features into its earbuds. The most recent example of this is the latest Soundcore Liberty 3 Pros, which highlights just how far the brand has progressed in terms of making audio products.

These TWS noise-cancelling earbuds surpass its own class with powerful bass and incredibly clear, high-resolution music. Other noteworthy features like customisable ANC, Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, and a new design demonstrate that Anker is making a valiant effort to take on the TWS market.

Unfortunately, the earphones have a couple of flaws as well, particularly a lacklustre transparency mode and inefficient controls. So, are they worth your time or is it better to skip them? Let’s find out in this Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro review.

PROS

  • Great sound quality
  • Customisable ANC
  • Different ear wings and tips included
  • Wireless charging 
  • Multipoint support

CONS

  • Average ANC
  • Cumbersome controls

Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro Design and Comfort

The Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro features an elegant, small profile with a sleek oval design and glossy finish. It is available in four colour options- black, white, purple, and blue-grey and looks excellent right out of the box.

Hard plastic makes up the majority of the construction, which increases durability. With four different ear tip sizes and four wing sizes, you can find the perfect fit for your ears.

The ear wings’ flexibility made it easier to get the ideal fit. They are soft against the skin and tuck gently into the top of the ear. These earphones are a wonderful workout buddy due to their snug fit and IPX4 water-resistant rating.

The Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro comes in a compact and portable case. It fits effortlessly into any pocket and is both smaller and lighter than the previous case. The lid does not flip open; rather, it slides back to show the charging docks.

Since there is plenty of room within, it takes some practice to properly insert the earbuds. They ultimately snap into place because the magnets are pretty strong. The front panel features LED status indicators, and the backside houses a Type-C port.

Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro Audio Quality

The Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro earbuds have amazing sound quality. You receive crystal-clear and balanced audio. There is a perfect amount of crispness and clarity in the vocals.

To be very honest, the default bass level was too loud and boomy for my taste. Even though not every customer will enjoy this sound, many will, especially if you enjoy listening to high-energy Rap and EDM music or prefer a thumping bass end when working out.

Remember that you can easily customise the sound to your taste by fiddling with the EQ settings inside the Soundcore app.

The Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro’s active noise-cancelling effectively reduces background noise indoors, including loud TV shows and chatter. However, it wasn’t as effective at blocking road noise outside as competing earbuds with superior ANC.

Soundcore ANC

In most scenarios, the quality of the microphone is ideal for taking calls. There are six microphones in the earbuds to help with background noise reduction. To sum up, they are some of the best-sounding TWS earbuds I’ve reviewed, with plenty of bass.

Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro Battery and Charging

The Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro claims a battery life of about eight hours on a single charge. However, you can only achieve such battery life if ANC is off. With ANC turned on, the battery life cuts down to half.

I got a little more than four hours of playback time with ANC and seven and half hours with ANC turned off. The battery life will depend on your usage and ANC settings. The case can charge the buds three times or, let’s say, add another 24 hours.

The battery is neither bad nor good, it’s somewhere in the middle. For a quick comparison, it lasts shorter than the Sony WH-1000XM4 (8 hours) but longer than the Airpods Pro (4.5 hours).

Coming over to charging, it takes about two hours to fully charge the earbuds using the type-C cable. However, a quick charge of just 15 minutes can deliver a playback time of 3 hours. The Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro also supports wireless charging, which is a great plus.

Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro Features and Connectivity

The Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro comes with Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity support to deliver high-quality audio streaming on your devices. Both pairing and auto-connecting happens quickly.

The Liberty 3 Pro can be connected to up to two devices at a time, thanks to multipoint connectivity, but only one of them can play. If the buds are connected to multiple devices, you would first need to disconnect the one that is currently in use before switching to another.

Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro Features

To get the most out of your earbuds and access all the features, you would need to use the companion Soundcore app. It’s the only way to tweak EQ settings and controls, as well as turn off functionality like wear recognition, which automatically pauses music when you take the buds out of your ear. The app interface is easy to use and pretty straightforward.

When you switch on Adaptive Mode, the Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro will automatically adapt the noise cancellation level to match the ambient noise levels. Transparency mode can also be turned on and off within the app.

Anker occasionally confuses me, mostly because to its control scheme choices. You may assign actions for track skipping, music playback, and much more with single, double, and triple taps. However, even after tapping on the bud, commands don’t always carry out. The uniformity of the controls is sometimes lacking.

Verdict

The Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro earbuds from Anker are undoubtedly capable of producing appealing, powerful sounds. Additionally, they compete with other earbuds in this price bracket, like the Jabra Elite 7 Pro, in terms of noise cancellation.

They fit well, thanks to the wide range of wing sizes and ear tip which guarantees a snug fit. However, they just failed to provide me with the security I required for jogging and rigorous workouts.

If you can put up with their flaws, these earbuds are excellent for anyone looking for high-quality audio and effective active noise cancellation on a budget.
