Introduction

Noise-canceling wireless earbuds (or earphones) are gaining extreme popularity for their convenience, and modern models have the greater appeal of features such as water resistance, long-range connectivity, and high-quality audio replication. 

Chinese-based technologists, TaoTronics, have recently released their SoundLiberty 94 True Wireless Earbuds. Available at a great price, considering its features and quality, it is slowly climbing the ranks in the wireless technology market. When buying a wireless earphone set (or any audio product really) there are a number of factors to consider before rushing into any purchase, and the TaoTronics Soundliberty 94 ticks all the boxes! Let’s jump into the technical talk and discuss why these wireless earphones are making waves on the scene…

Design and Features

The SoundLiberty 94 is housed within a slick-looking, portable carry case that charges the earbuds while not in use. The case also aids in the connection process, simply remove them from their enclosure and they will automatically connect to your device (provided you have previously established a connection. The TaoTronics SoundLiberty 94 can function on two modes- ANC (Active Noise Cancelling) and Ambient. 

Active Noise Cancelling mode enables innovative phase-reversal principles to effectively cancel out up to 35dB of background noise. This is accomplished by making use of two onboard microphones, one inward-facing, and one outward-facing. These signals are combined and one of their waveforms is flipped by 180 degrees to achieve phase cancellation. This is incredibly useful when listening to music/radio/podcasts in noisy environments such as gyms, busy roads, airplanes, etc. 

Ambient mode allows you to hear background noise while the earbuds are used. This allows you to play media at a low volume and still stay aware of surroundings, colleagues’ voices, and more important background information. 

For the gym enthusiasts out there, TaoTronics has a special feature just for you: water and sweat resistance, which allows your wireless earbuds to operate at optimum performance levels no matter the conditions. The SoundLiberty 94 can also maintain a connection at a distance of up to 15m/50ft, so there is no need to keep your phone/iPod in your pocket while at the gym. It is notable that the water-resistant technology IPx5 is great for sweating while gyming/running, but I wouldn’t take the risk of using these in the shower or rain…

TaoTronics also boasts extended playtime capabilities with its SoundLiberty 94 earbuds. A low power consumption chipset is used to ensure a longer playtime of up to 8 straight hours with Active Noise Cancellation mode disabled and 32 hours when used with its charging case when not in use. Active Noise Cancelling and Ambient mode can be toggled by tapping the earbud.

The charging case operates at 360mAh and fully charges your earbuds in 2 hours or less! The case accepts a USB-C cable (included in the box)

Now that we know everything about the SoundLiberty 94’s amazing features, let’s take a look at the sound quality these earbuds produce…

TaoTronics SoundLiberty 94 Review

Sound Quality

As for sound quality, the SoundLiberty 94 will not let you down. In fact, it will surpass many expectations. The earbuds can operate on two codecs (infrared/Bluetooth data transmission code) SBC (standard-grade code, CD Quality) and AAC (Apple-native, higher quality sound, and connection), and both codecs run on the latest Bluetooth 5.1 technology

As previously discussed, the Active Noise Cancelling technology allows you to stay more focused on your music/radio/podcast as background noise is effectively blocked. The large 9.2mm driver allows for greater bass response, and relatively flat frequency response is present here, giving you greatly accurate sound replication, the way the music was intended to sound. 

Controls and Functions

The TaoTronics SoundLiberty 94 has a variety of features and control functions available that can be accessed and enabled on the earbuds themselves, these include Play/Pause, Volume Up/Down, Next Track/Previous Track, Answer/Decline Incoming Phone Call, End Current Phone Call, Power On/Off and Active Noise Cancellation On/Off. 

All of the above functions can be activated by tapping or holding the earbuds in different manners, more info on this is available in the detailed and easy to follow user manual.
