    I personally tried the LA2Ps and I decided to go with the Buds Pro, 1. The fit, the Galaxy buds have a better fit and were more comfortable for my ears. 2. The sound, yes the liberty air 2 pros sound good but they always felt loose or not as secure and I tried all the ear tips and nothing changed, the Galaxy buds I used the large tip and they still in snug and have no movement and sound amazing in my opinion. 3. The call quality, for me it's better on the Galaxy buds not that the liberty sound bad but they Galaxy sounded better and I was heard clearer on calls. And finally the Design, I prefer the sleek and minimal look of the Galaxy buds, the stem design isn't bad but I just prefer the Galaxy buds. Also both have app support and for me it's about equal since they both have alot of features. Just try both if you can but if money is tight get the liberty air 2 pros but if you have the extra money grab the Galaxy buds, they're on sale for 169$ as well. Cheers

    Picking at a product here galore on the Soundcores. No one buys them other than music, which they are excellent at. Your also going on about the plastic and too much. If you want to have a premium price for a product then fine, but what do you expect?!.... the earth and two other earths?.... so it’s plastic ... so it’s gonna get fingerprints. But are you seriously gonna be looking at your headphones that are that small getting bugged about that or are you gonna wear them and get out do your power walk? And who’s gonna notice that there not clean out a walk, or even more so, are you seriously gonna get bugged with this when your playing the excellent audio, that these reproduce. I’m not even gonna say sorry here. It had to be said I’m afraid !!

    Great review! I got the buds pro because of the sound quality/ANC reviews and the design--almost like wearing a jewelry, the mirror finish on the outside is just amazing. But my ears get a bit sore because part of my ear cartilage gets pushed by the big buds when wearing. I've heard so many solid reviews about soundcore air 2 pro. Imo its design has some space for improvement, but the stem design might be a good idea for the improved comfort. And a2p is on sale for $99. Dilemmas...

      Thanks for sharing your experience, Shamar! It probably goes to show that not all magnets are created equally, and nuances in manufacturing tolerances can affect how well (or not) a earbud stays in its cavity, in this case.

    Galaxy buds pro ANC is not upto the mark, there is hardly any difference between high and low ANC setting😅however sound is better compared to Airpods pro and Huawei Freebuds.
    Huawei freebuds offer better ANC than Samsung Buds.
    Also Bass is deep and punchy on the samsung buds followed by freebuds pro.

    Hey Aaron, I've got the buds pro. Sound quality is amazing - similar to sennheiser mtw2. Anyway 1 thing I noticed is that although it has proximity sensors, music will not auto pause if you take one bud out. It only pauses if you remove both buds. Aaron did you notice this too?

      That's one of the first things I take note off, and it was fine on my test unit. If you have ANC on and you remove one of the buds, the other goes into passthrough mode. However, occasionally one of my fingers would cover a prox sensor window as I removed the bud, causing the wear detection to fail.

      @Aritra Chatterjee very good for music too, with the app that allows you to personalise the sound profile. Havent used it for movies, I have over ear headphones for that. There is bass, there is highs too. Also, noice cancellation with indoor and outdoor mode and transparency mode are more than adequate. The normal mode is pointless :) Don't know if it's among the best but I think most people will be happy. It's worth the money in my opinion. Another reason for me to get it is that it comes with many sizes eartips. It took a while but I have finally found a size that fits. I don't excercise with them so there is no big challenge there, but they definitely don't fall out mid call :)

      Ha-ha, too soon to tell, but gut feeling is the Soundcore. But when the Samsung's price drops, it'll be swayed that direction. That said, at the end of my day, I still grab either the Liberty 2 Pro and the Air 2 first. I'm thinking of doing a comparison video on these three.

    Hello, I just got the Liberty Air 2 Pro buds last week. I agree with your review on the sound quality(they sounded great on my laptop w/THX sound while watching Star Wars). However, I found the earphones a little fiddly trying to keep them in my ears(tried several different eartips). Also agree with you on the tap menu(not enough features). Also the volume was not as high as the old Liberty Air 2 (which I have purchased last year). I found they sounded best with the default Soundcore EQ setting. I experienced a lower battery life - about 5 1/2 hours (w/ANC off) listening to music and watching a couple movies at below 50% volume. These have slightly better bluetooth range than the older model (especially with the new Avantree USB DG80 Bluetooth 5.0 adapter). I think the best new feature these have over the old Liberty Air 2 is the ANC. I still find myself going back to the old Liberty Air 2 as they have better volume, better fit and touch controls.

      When the heck did that price drop? That changes everything. The Samsung might have some stiff competition here. The tech on the Samsung is spot on, but the SQ and ANC are better in the Jabra, to my ears, at least.

    A white wedding ring? Is it made out of bone?

      @GearUP with Aaron I see. You use your ring finger a lot during rock climbing? I would have thought it would be thumb, pointer and a middle finger. Sorry, I'm kind of drunk a little. It's Friday night here in Japan. 🍻

      Lol, it's silicone. Great for when my fingers swell up after rock climbing. 😁
