It’s not every day that you can pick up a pair of decent wireless active noise canceling earbuds for under $100, which is why today’s deal on Anker’s Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro is so striking. For a limited time, you can buy the excellent budget-friendly earbuds at Amazon and Best Buy for just $69.99, a new record low, instead of $129.99.
The earbuds sound good considering the low price and they offer solid call quality. You can even adjust the balance of the noise canceling effect.

If you prefer something new, Anker’s Liberty 3 Pro is also on sale for $129.99 instead of $169.99 at Amazon and Best Buy, which corresponds to their all-time low. Unlike their predecessor, these true wireless earbuds support LDAC (Sony’s higher bitrate wireless streaming protocol) and can connect to multiple devices at once, while providing more powerful sound. Keep in mind that while both Anker models do quite a bit of silencing your surroundings, they don’t completely muffle them like some of the more capable noise-cancelling earbuds on the market, such as Apple’s AirPods Pro.
