Truly wireless earphones are looking like a big part of the future of personal audio, and fortunately they aren’t very expensive anymore. Getting onto this bandwagon is an easier choice to make now that prices are reasonable, and it’s possible to get a good pair of truly wireless earphones for less than Rs. 10,000 today. However, if you have an even lower budget than that, you’ll want to ensure you’re getting enough bang for your buck.
One affordable pair of truly wireless earphones that promises a lot is the Anker Soundcore Liberty Lite. This brand is well known for its affordable and capable power accessories, including chargers and power banks. Priced at Rs. 6,999, the Soundcore Liberty Lite earphones are well designed and have an impressive set of specifications, but how do they sound? We find out in our review.
Anker Soundcore Liberty Lite design and specifications
Truly wireless earphones are meant to be small, light, and discreet, and the Anker Soundcore Liberty Light earphones are exactly that. They don’t attract too much attention, don’t stick out of your ears too much, and fit comfortably and securely. The outer parts of each earphone have a button, and these can be used to control playback and summon the voice assistant on a paired smartphone.
However, you can’t control volume from the earphones; this needs to be done on the source device. There is also an indicator light, while the inner sides of both earbuds have contact points for charging.
The sales package includes the two earbuds, the charging case, four pairs of ear tips, four pairs of ear wings, and a Micro-USB cable for charging the case. We found the fit of the earbuds most comfortable when using the non-winged fittings. We were impressed with the level of noise isolation on offer; this can prove to be a bit risky when using these earphones outdoors and in public, because of how effectively the earphones cut you off from ambient sound.
The Anker Soundcore Liberty Lite’s pill-shaped charging case is a bit larger than the ones that come with most options in this segment. It’s plastic, features a Micro-USB port for charging, and provides three full charges for the two earphones.
The buds themselves ran for about 2.5 hours on a full charge, which means we got an average combined battery life of around ten hours. The right earbud is the primary one which connects to the source device, and can be used independently. The left earbud only works when the right one is active.
While many options in this category support only the SBC Bluetooth codec, the Anker Soundcore Liberty Lite adds support for the AAC codec as well, which can deliver improved sound quality on both Android and iOS devices. The earphones use Bluetooth 5 for connectivity, and are also IPX5-rated for water resistance, making them suitable for use while working out.
