If you've been waiting for a good reason to invest in a pair of true wireless earbuds, this is your chance. Right now, you can get Anker's Soundcore Liberty Neo True Wireless Earbuds for just $39.99 on Amazon. They originally cost $59.99 and have been around $50 for the last couple months. But this is the best price we've ever seen for them. Yes, even better than Prime Day, when I (and lots of other savvy shoppers) snagged them for about $41.
What first attracted me to these Anker earbuds was the low price. The best true wireless earbuds will run you $150-$200, which I think is too high for something so easy to lose. If you're not forgetful like I am, or if you have the cash to burn on replacements, by all means, go high-end. But if you're frugal or just want something good that doesn't have to be amazing, I cannot speak more highly of these earbuds from Anker.
I've been wearing mine nearly every day since I got them in mid-July. So far they've been very comfortable, have had zero connectivity issues, sound totally great, and actually block out other sounds surprisingly well. The battery life is where they lose the battle against Airpods and other top-shelf options, but it's not a deal-breaker.
One of our reviewers is testing the new $228 Sony WF-1000XM3 earbuds right now and said they've been lasting upwards of six hours on a charge. The Soundcore Liberty New earbuds last about 2.5-3 hours on continuous use, which is honestly fine. When mine die, I just pop them back in their charging case for 15-20 minutes and use the time to stretch my legs and give my eyes a screen break. I have to charge the case once, maybe twice a week, which is so easy since I can keep using my earbuds while it charges.
What I love most about them, though, is that if I lose my earbuds now, or if anything happens to them, I'm honestly OK with it. For just $40, I've already had then for two weeks and have used them nearly daily so I've already gotten my money's worth. I may even pick up a second pair as a backup while they're at this awesome sale price, which will be available until midday on August 19. But the pair I already have, despite being a little larger than other options, fit securely and stay put whether I'm walking or on the treadmill, making me less afraid I might send one flying into traffic or another gym-goer.
