Since inside the Anker Soundcore case, there is one 11 mm dynamic driver and another balanced driver, so the case is not small and has a good weight. For example, both earbuds weigh 17 grams. Of course, this is a lot, but when wearing, I did not have any pressure or discomfort.
The front side of the earbuds has a company logo and here you will not find touch control, as is usually the case.
On the upper part of the Liberty 2 Pro earbud housing, there is a mechanical button for control and also a channel name designation.
The lower part received three contact holes for charging through the charging box.

Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro: Sound

Mid and high frequencies are quite clean and have good detail on the instruments. Sounds do not collapse, and the number of musical frequencies is not compressed, so the sound is very saturated and at the same time transparent.
The main microphone with noise reduction shows good sound quality during a conversation, the interlocutor heard me without any problems.
