It’s almost as if Anker took all the customer feedback people were giving Apple about the AirPods and AirPods Pro, and combined them all into their own earphones. Meet the Anker Soundcore Life F2. They look and feel a lot like the original Airpods, but come with Pro-style silicone tips to secure themselves in your ear so that this doesn’t happen. They perform noise-cancellation like the Pros do, come with touch-based gestures like most earphones do, and offer a pretty stunning 40 hours of use with the case. Oh, and they’re designed in glorious black, something most AirPods users will agree look pretty good in that form factor!
The Soundcore Life F2 earphones pack graphene-based audio drivers that offer superior sound-quality with crystal clarity. Within its Airpods-esque long-stem design doesn’t just sit a bigger battery, but also 4 microphones that perform beam-forming, vocal enhancement, and background noise suppression to make your phone-calls up to 3-times clearer than the competition. You can answer and end calls or toggle through music playback features just like you normally would, by tapping and sliding against the earbud-stem, and depending on whether you’re running Android or iOS, you can summon the voice assistant through the earphones too. All this is packed inside an IPx7 waterproof design that works easily through rain and sweaty gym-sessions. The silicone buds give you a much more secure fit too, so you could actually go jogging or gymming with these without worrying that they’ll fall out… and if you want to be like a Bluetooth-headset-touting Wall Street businessman from a decade ago, you can independently use a single earpiece in Mono mode, keeping your second ear free! All that for a quarter of the price of the AirPods Pro.
