SoundCore Liberty 4 NC

Soundcore Liberty 4 NC Review

Welcome to my review of the Soundcore Liberty 4 NC 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 adorned is the Soundcore Liberty 4 NC. They are labelled to support hi-res audio via Bluetooth whilst reducing up to 98.5% of external noise.

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 4 NC offer quite a lot in the package really. We have the below:

  • Reduce noise by up to 98.5% with advanced noise cancelling system
  • Adaptive ANC 2.0 adapts to ears and environment in real-time
  • 11mm drivers, Hi-Res Wireless and LDAC technology for crisp sound
  • Full adjustable EQ with Hear ID 2.0 for a tailored sound profile
  • 10/50 hours of battery for long-lasting quiet
  • Wireless charging battery case
  • Fast Pair and Bluetooth 5.3 multi-point connection
  • IPX4 water-resistance against spills and rain
  • 6 mics and an AI algorithm enable crystal clear calls
  • Reduce noise by up to 98.5% with advanced noise cancelling system

Design and Functionality

I 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 3 pairs of ear tips. One pair of tips are already installed on the earbuds themselves so this totals four different sizes of tips. This amount of customisation means ears of all shapes and sizes should be able to comfortably use the Soundcore Liberty 4 NC earbuds.

The earbuds and case come in a selection of five colours. We have black, clear white, light blue, navy blue, and pastel pink. Soundcore kindly sent me the black variant which look rather nice. One thing I have noticed is they attract a lot of dust. Of course, on a lighter colour, you may not notice this so much. It’s also not the end of the world as it can easily be wiped off. The case itself has a nice square design with rounded edges. I Quite a neat idea.

Soundcore say that the Soundcore Liberty 4 NC earbuds will give us the best sound thanks to the 11mm drivers in them. The earbuds also give us personalised active noise cancellation thanks to HeadID 2.0 ANC which I go into more detail about below.

The Soundcore Liberty 4 NC earbuds support LDAC, AAC, and SBC. I will say that the actual sound of them (once personalised with HearID 2.0), 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 Liberty 4 NC are still a very good set of earbuds!

Connection and Software

Connection is simple, you hold the button on the charging case which also functions as a little button to open the case. This will then put your earbuds into pairing mode for you to connect via Bluetooth.

You will be rather limited by doing it this way though, I recommend you use the Soundcore app so you can completely fine-tune the earbuds to your taste. The app is pretty decent to be fair. You will have to 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 2.0. 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, and it works even better than the idea itself.

You can also change settings such as game mode, enable/disable the active noise cancelling, change your equaliser settings, and more in the app. Firmware can also be updated wirelessly this way.


To sum it all up, the Liberty 4 NC wireless earbuds are a fantastic budget set. I challenge you to find a better set of earbuds for the price of £79.99 RRP.

I give the Soundcore Liberty 4 NC earbuds a score of 9/10.
