As you guys know, back in 2017 we launched the world’s first zero-compromise true wireless earbuds on Kickstarter with Liberty+ and, thanks to your support, managed to raise almost $3mil.
This initial Kickstarter experiment became the inspiration for Liberty Neo (left) and Liberty Air (right), which, when combined, have almost 2000 reviews on Amazon, with an average rating of around 4 stars, so chances are they need no introduction with you. But, despite their slight differences in price, what else separates these two high-quality, low-priced, truly wireless earbuds?
Well, we thought we’d answer that with a quick ‘vs. review’.
When it comes to sound quality, you know we like to give you a lot of bang for your buck, so despite their low-price points, neither of these will disappoint when it comes to listening pleasure. Both come with expertly-tuned, graphene-enhanced sound. Android Police described Liberty Neo as “finally bringing decent audio” to low price earbuds, while CNET have described Liberty Air as being “half the price of Apple’s AirPods and sound as good or better”.
Besides sound, these earbuds are equally matched when it comes to playtime, with both of them boasting 20-hours worth of audio listening enjoyment (with case included).
Getting down to it then, where are the real differences?
When it comes to choosing your completely wireless earbuds other key aspects are comfort and context of use.
Although Liberty Neo and Liberty Air have relatively neutral shapes and come with a variety of earbuds to fit the shape of your ears, Liberty Neo has a slight edge for the gym-goers among us. This is because both have IPX waterproof ratings, but Liberty Neo has a superior rating of IPX7, making it slightly better suited for your workout. Still, with Liberty Air’s IPX5 rating I definitely wouldn’t write it off.
For Liberty Air, the edge it has over Liberty Neo concerns its dual mics with uplink noise cancellation, making these more suited for those with busy lifestyles, wanting to make calls on the go.
With that, I wanna hand it off to you guys! Which is your go-to true wireless set of earbuds? What do you love about true wireless earbuds? What do you dislike? What can we improve on in our future generations? As always, let us know in the comments below.
