Soundcore, an Anker-owned brand, is taking on Apple’s AirPods this summer with a more affordable offering. For $69, the Soundcore Liberty Lite is one of the most budget-friendly wireless earbuds on the market.
According to Anker, they’re not only affordable, but a novelty in the world of wearables. These earbuds will be the “first truly wireless earbuds featuring Sweatguard,” a special coating that protests against water, sweat, and corrosion.
Anker is known for putting emphasis on battery quality and the Liberty Lite don’t disappoint. They will offer up to 3.5 hours of wireless playtime. Their case will, of course, double as a charger, with the battery capacity providing you another 12 hours of usage.
The Liberty Lite will also bring simple pairing and support the Bluetooth 5.0 technology.
While they’re not quite as discrete as a pair of AirPods, they do pack a lot of features for a pretty low price. For those interested, expect to see them in stores this June.
