Wireless headphones are useful for more than just listening to your favorite songs. Maybe it's just me, but I've always despised holding my phone to my ear to have a conversation. Now, thanks to true wireless headphones like the Anker Soundcore Life P2 True Wireless Headphones (opens in new tab), you can take calls and talk to your friends hands-free without paying a ton of money in the process. These new earbuds recently debuted at $59.99 on Amazon, though right now they're down to only $49.99 when you clip the $10 coupon on their product page. Today's deal marks one of the best prices these headphones have reached since their release a couple of months ago.
The Soundcore Life P2 true wireless headphones are a perfect pick if you're someone who's worried about call quality when it comes to Bluetooth headphones, as Anker has integrated two microphones into each earbud to help your voice be clearly heard on the other end of the call. They even feature beamforming noise reduction and cVc 8.0 noise-cancelling technology to help enhance your voice and reduce the amount of background noise on your end.
With Anker's BassUp technology, these headphones analyze low frequencies in real time to enhance and intensify the music, while aptX audio allows the headphones to stream CD-like audio quality with lossless transmission. In other words, you won't be missing anything sound-wise by ditching the wires and going wireless. The only new concern you'll have to consider is their battery life, though these headphones can last for much longer than many other true wireless options.
Where the AirPods (opens in new tab) have a five-hour battery life, the Soundcore Life P2 headphones can last for seven hours at a time. Using the included charging case, you'll be able to power them up and listen for up to 40 hours before it would need to be charged again. While it's annoying to have to start charging your headphones if you're accustomed to using wired headphones, you'll be able to power them up for an hour of playtime by just popping them into the charging case for 10 minutes.
These headphones are even IPX7-rated and feature a fully waterproof casing so you can keep listening to music or having a conversation while you're walking through a rainstorm. They automatically connect to the last paired device so you can start listening as soon as they're removed from the charging case.
The streaming protocol is lossless, but the DAC in these headphones is not as good as the one in your phone or dongle.
Got a pair on BF (the wires on ANY wired headset drive me insane when they rub against the jacket, especially in winter) and I'm happy.
Is it the best sound? Nope, but a good equalizer helps a LOT.
Long lasting battery, a bulky but useful case (total 35 or so hours in my testing) and a reasonable price are my pluses.
The lack of a mute button for calls and in general sub-par performance of the touted 4 mikes are things I don't like and would like Anker to address in Life P3.
Looks that the company listens to their customers so let's see in 8-12 months (based on past history).
