Having to listen to music all day…. But also the weird hours I’ll get phone calls to go into the studio.
What did you think when we contacted you regarding Liberty 2 Pro and why did you agree to work with us?
I thought it was cool that a company would want to know what actual audio professionals have to say about their product. I agreed to work with Soundcore because I’ve used Anker/Soundcore products before and I find them to work quite well.
When you first heard Liberty 2 Pro in its final form what did you think?
I thought the Liberty 2 Pro’s sounded great when I got a chance to try them out. I was impressed by the sound image and the comfortability of wearing them.
Have your impressions of Liberty 2 Pro changed or have you noticed anything new?
I still love them. I thought I would have lost them by now (I tend to lose ear buds all the time) but thanks to the case, I’ve been able to keep them safe. So that’s been a positive attribute for sure.
Any other comments?
Thanks for the opportunity to try out the headphones. I look forward to future products from you guys. Keep up the good work.
