Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro

Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro Review

Welcome to my review of the Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro true wireless earbuds. Soundcore, or Anker, are a name that is known to a lot of those on the hunt for wireless audio products, we’ve reviewed quite a few of their products so far.

Hear More With Soundcore

The latest that my ears have wielded is the Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro. They are labelled to support hi-res audio via Bluetooth with quite a long listening time between charges.

So how will these compare to other wireless earbuds that I’ve used? Continue reading to find out. You can also check out our previous hardware reviews.

The Hardware

The Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro offer quite a lot in the package really. We have the below:

  • True wireless earbuds that have up to 8 hours of playtime.
  • Charging case that supports USB C and also wireless charging, which gives us 32 hours of playtime.
  • You can fast charge the case so it gives you 3 hours of listening time with only 15 minutes of charge.
  • Hi-res and 3D sound
  • 6 microphones
  • IPX4 (protection from water splashes such as rain)

You get a lot for your money.

The earbuds also support “tap” to be set up, so you can tap either side two or three times and this will change your audio experience from Active Noise Cancelling to “Transparency” mode so you can hear everything around you, or you could skip a song, turn the music up, pause a song. You get the idea.

Design and Functionality

I actually quite like the design of the earbuds, they fit nicely in the ear and should you have problems with this, Soundcore has you covered. Inside the box, we have 4 pairs of ear tips and 4 pairs of ear wings. One pair of wings is already installed on the earbuds themselves. But this amount of customisation means ears of all shapes and sizes should be able to comfortably use the Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro earbuds.

The earbuds and case come in a selection of four colours. We have fog gray, midnight black, frost white, and dusk purple. Soundcore kindly sent me the midnight black variant which look rather nice. One thing I have noticed is they pick up dust, a lot. Of course on a lighter colour, you may not notice this so much. The case itself has a nice design, similar to that of a pebble, where we have to slide the lid backwards. Quite a neat idea.

Soundcore say that the Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro earbuds will give us golden sound thanks to the 10.6mm coaxial dual driver technology in them. This is powered by ACAA 2.0, the earbuds also give us personalised active noise cancellation thanks to HeadID ANC which I go into more detail about below.

The Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro earbuds support LDAC, AAC, and SBC. I will say that the actual sound of them (once personalised with HearID), sounds incredible. However, I did find that hi-res audio sounded better through my Edifier NeoBuds Pro earbuds. Don’t let that put you off though, the L3P are still a very good set of earbuds.

Connection and Software

Connection is simple, you hold the button on the charging case and this will then broadcast your earbuds for you to connect via Bluetooth. You will be limited by doing it this way though, I recommend you use the app so you can completely fine-tune the earbuds to your taste.

The software side of things is fantastic. You use the Soundcore app that can be downloaded from the iOS App Store or Google Play Store for free. This app then allows you to connect to your device, change settings, and more. One key feature of these headphones as mentioned briefly above is HearID. What this does is allows the app to perform a short hearing test so it can fine-tune the equaliser on the earbuds to your hearing. Very clever.

You can also change settings such as hi-res, enable/disable the active noise cancelling, change your equaliser settings, and more in the app. Firmware can also be updated wirelessly in this app too.

Conclusions

To sum it all up, the Liberty 3 Pro wireless earbuds are a very strong contender in the current market. Personally, I prefer my previous wireless buds as mentioned above, but the Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro should definitely be on your radar if you’re on the lookout for some new wireless buds.

I give the Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro earbuds a score of 9/10.
