Anker's better known for its mobile battery accessories, but lately it's been making a serious push into the headphone market. It's selling two new totally wireless headphones, the Zolo Liberty and Zolo Liberty Plus, that respectively retail for $100 (£70 or about $AU130 converted) and $150 (£110 or about $AU190 converted). They're both pretty good but not quite good enough to make you forget about the AirPods or .
These are noise isolating buds and from a design standpoint aren't so different fromheadphones and .
What's different about the Plus? Well, for starters it's got a little bit of a premium look and feel to it. I got an early listen to it shortly before Anker launched an Indiegogo campaign for it last summer (2017), with early-bird pricing set at less than $100. From what I saw and heard, it seemed like a good deal at the time, but after using the final product for a few weeks, I'm less enthusiastic about it at $150, especially after the new Jabra hit the market.
The more premium design extends to the Liberty Plus' charging case. While it's slightly smaller than the standard Liberty's charging case, it has a little bit of metal trim and a higher capacity battery inside so it's a little heavier as a result.
