Yup... Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro
Whenever a product is coined as a challenger to apple airpod or airpod pro... it starts to get slaughtered or scrutinised lolx XD

But i dont mind to get a pair and compare it with WF-1000XM3, jabra 65t, 75t and 85t

Noticed a few downgrades from last gen LA2 after watching a few reviews on YouTube:

- IPx5 to IPx4
- 28 hours to 26hours
- QCC 3020 to non QCC chipset (missing AptX support)
- Call quality is just average (not much difference from the previous LA2)



The design like nice

But not pocketable leh
if neckband type, if the design is like soft cable and not those with a solid neckband, actually might be more pocketable since can just coil it up or just leave it hanging around neck when not in use.



any recommendation on bt adapter?
if you want TWS style BT adapter, FIIO UTWS3 that just came out probably the best based on feedback on headfi. got mmcx and 2pin option. ease of use with the charging case too. Another option is the TRN BT20S Pro which I'm using. it's a bit cheaper, has a charging case too, and it uses an interchangeable connector system, so can swap between mmcx, 2pin. HOWEVER, based on some feedback i've seen QC is a bit hit of miss. Some have mentioned connectivity issues, some mention 1 side stopped charging, etc. Mine works okay though and has rock solid connection, just that the charging contact a bit easier to lose contact with the adapter for the left side. AND if you are looking at mmcx option won't really recommend these. I have the mmcx connectors too and one side became a bit wonky after a while and doesn't give a solid connection to IEMs anymore.

you can check out this thread too.

If you talking about the neckband type my only experience is with the KZ aptx HD one, and it's not one that I enjoy using much because of how the cable is, so can't help much.

I got mine at Sony 313 Somerset late last mth from this promo. Most probably XM4 is coming soon, since the WH version already have the XM4.

Just curious. Many manufacturers aren't doing NFC wireless earphones already? Or there isn't any?

NFC? NFC is super short range leh. If you meant for pairing, why pay more for NFC? only need to pair once anyway

Wanted to get the galaxy buds pro for working out due to its ipx7 rating, but found out that they will not update the iOS app to support it. Disappointing, they could have updated it but gave us only the controls to eq, transparency and anc. Turn on transparency when talking could be left out as an exclusive Samsung feature.

The work around is to set your settings using android phones. The settings will stay in the buds even when u connect to your iOS devices.

Buy some cheapo yet decent tws loh

Not directing at you but I'm puzzled why ppl are willing to pay so much for something with such short product life. Whatmore, I assume tws are to be used outdoors and for a short period of time. So why are ppl so bothered by the sound quality/qc of it? Get something decent and make do with it loh. If audiophile then invest more in home AV

Actually I work out every other day, for about 2hrs. The investment for a better sounding wireless is still worth it. Obviously Iím not gonna pay retail for the buds pro. If it actually gets 2 years before the battery dies out then itís ok.
