Now this is a set of true wireless earbuds from anker and their soundcore brand, so i’m really interested to see how these perform first things. First, let’s open up the packaging with our jerry rig everything knife. If you haven’t already, you can check out that video on the tech travel geeks youtube channel, where we unbox the jerry, rig everything knife and show you what it does right. Then i think we’ve opened up the box here, a few details here. Obviously these are bluetooth. 5 earbuds, so latest version of bluetooth and inside the box we have plastic container, which has all the usual literature a complete set of earbud tips from extra large, all the way down to extra small with some medium ones in the middle, a decent powered by anchor Charging cable, which has a nice little cable tidy, which is very very handy in my view, especially for traveling, which is usb type, a two usb type c, which is good to see. That means that you’ll likely be able to charge these acer sound core earbuds. Using your phone charger if of course, you’re using any smartphone apart from the fruity one now let’s have a look at what the earbuds themselves are like interesting. So we have instructions on the packaging itself, let’s open up this little plastic bag and look at the packaging. So instruction one so there’s going to be a little cover on the pogo pins and then we’ll need to charge them for five minutes and then pair with our phone.
So here here’s, the sound core case first impression is that it’s quite heavy as it has some heft to it, unlike other true wireless earbud cases that we’ve unboxed and done first impressions of recently, this one does feel quite bottom heavy and on the bottom, there’s. Quite a lot of technical specifications here saying that, yes, this is a parabolic bank charger for the earbuds themselves. It takes powers at 5, volts at 0.6 amp, so not a very high amount and it outputs at 5 volts at 0.3 amps, so it’s a it’s, a really low power device. But you would expect that with usb 5 with bluetooth 5 and the fact that they’re relatively efficient in this day and age so i’m going to take the pogo pin cover off here and as expected. Yes, there is already a earbud tip on the headphones and let’s have a look at the earphones themselves before we actually set them up. So the earbuds themselves have the silicon tips. They are of the sticky varieties and they have little sticks that stick out of your ears and they have buttons on the side they’re fit. These are physical buttons that click in rather than capacitive ones, and you can see the nice little detailing it seems to be metal tips on the the sound driver output there so i’m going to pop these in the box and make sure i get them in the Right one first so they’re now both plugged into the case i’m going to close the case and let them charge i’m, assuming that the case itself has a charge as it comes out of the box.
But what we’ll do is pair it with my google pixel 5.. So i’m going to go into the bluetooth settings on my pixel 5 and if we say pure new device and open the case and take the two earbuds out of the case charger, they should become visible and there we go. I see that we have sound core life: p2 that’s the model and name of the product and i’m going to pair those there we go and there we go left as well here great. So, as you can see, we also have an indicator of the battery life of the earbuds, which is good to see so i’ll be putting these earbuds through their paces, with a selection of audiobooks podcasts youtube videos, some music. I have a playlist which i’ll link to in the description to see if we can catch out any imperfections in the sounds output and then get back to you with some first impressions, so speak to you soon, then so, i’m, back after a few hours using the Uh anker soundcore earbuds, the soundcore life p2 wireless earbuds and i have to say overall performance was excellent. It was very, very good plenty of good sound coming out of them. They are a touch on the bassier side, but that doesn’t take away from any of the other areas of the sound in them. So if you have high pitched noise, if you have bassy noise and lots of in between these earbuds handled it very very well now that may be down to the fact that they have graphene drivers i’m, not sure i’m, not an expert in the space.
But overall i have to say, the sound quality is excellent. There was also no issues connecting the the devices connecting the earbuds to the devices both to my pixel 5 to my amazon fire tablet to my pc uh. These connected great and i’ve had no issues whatsoever. In terms of connection, i even took a walk down the corridor to uh, to feed the cats and i have to say no issues there, either in the sense that you have more than 10 min 10 meters. In terms of range for them to work with a pc or phone um, obviously it’s been a few hours that i’ve been using them from how they were when they came out, and we saw they had a almost full charge at the time. I believe the stats which anchor give us which say up to seven hours, playback time on uh one charge for the earbuds themselves and if you factor in the battery in the case itself, anchor declare that it should last you up to 40 hours of playback time. On one charge of the case, but i’ll need to do that in a longer term review now the case itself. First impressions were it’s slightly heavier than other true wireless earbuds that i’ve used it’s good. It opens and closes great, maybe it’s just me, but the material. The the not fully matte finish of the earbuds means that it’s a bit tricky if you have larger fingers getting the the buds in and out of your case.
So i also then did some tests on video. So i played back a few videos: for example, michael fisher, the mr mobile here on youtube, played back a couple of his videos and there was really no issues with sound there whatsoever, uh the same with a few podcasts on twitter.tv all great there, everything as expected There was little or no lag between what i was seeing on the screen and what i was hearing in my ear, which is always good, sometimes, with the lower priced earbuds, there can be a bit of lag there, even though the google pixel 5 is not officially An aptx capable device there’s, nothing in the settings indicating that um, the asos encore, handle the connection and low latency very, very well. So there we have it uh. One bonus that these earbuds have is that they are waterproof, they’re, ipx7 rated, which means that you can use them outside somewhere, like scotland, where it rains a lot when you’re running or whatever you’re doing, and they shouldn’t get damaged in that sort of context. So, overall, really good’s. First impressions of these bluetooth, 5 earbuds, good battery life, good, fit good, feel and excellent, sound quality overall for a pair of not large earbuds. So on that note, i think i’ll wrap up here. What i’ll do is i’ll as usual. Leave a link in the description to the product itself, where you can purchase these earbuds on amazon, where you can also find my link to a playlist that i use to test earbuds and sometimes find some issues with them with a selection of music.
That can sometimes push earbuds and earphones to their limits, but for now thanks for watching, if you made it this far into the video, if you don’t already, please do subscribe to the tech travel geeks here on youtube.
