    I believe that technology is the WHORE of Babylon the Bible speaks of. I love my twin sticks 2/65 ac straight pipe no power steering. Spring ride mechanical single stack Mack. With a can on the back. And I know a couple of women who can drive such a sweet ride.
    And I'm EMP complient.

    So by taking away what little physical activity we do they think it will be safer. That will make it almost impossible to not fall asleep at the wheel

Save $40 on my new-favorite AirPods alternative, the Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro

Here’s the dilemma for anyone shopping for true-wireless earbuds: Do you spend around $50 on a cheapie pair, splurge on something in the $200-250 range or hunt for something in the middle? Usually I point people at the cheapie option, because a lot of $50 earphones right now sound awfully good for the price. But, wow, if you’re willing to spend a bit more, you can get something that sounds amazing — and still feel smug about not blowing $200-plus.

Here you go: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Cheapskate readers can get the Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro for $109.99 with promo code CnetLt2P. That’s $40 off the regular price and the first discount on this brand-new product.

The Liberty 2 Pros come in a cool oval case with a sliding top door. The earbuds are good for a whopping 8 hours of playtime, according to Anker, and the case can recharge them up to three full times. The case itself gets recharged via USB-C (yay!) or Qi wireless (double-yay!).

Like most earbuds, these employ noise-isolating tips. They also have wings that help achieve, in my ears at least, a super-snug fit. You don’t get active noise-cancellation like with AirPods Pro, but I remain steadfast in my belief that a good inner-ear seal affords sufficient noise reduction for many situations. (Next time I fly, I’m going to put it to the test.)

As I’ve noted many times, I’m no audiophile. But I have to admit, the Liberty 2 Pros sound fantastic — notably better than a lot of the $50 earbuds I’ve tested. There’s just so much detail to the music tracks I sampled, and such a perfect amount of rich, resonant bass. If you like to tinker, you’ll appreciate Anker’s companion app, which lets you switch between a variety of equalizer settings and even change the tap and double-tap function of each earbud.

All told, I think the Liberty 2 Pro is just one feature shy of perfection: There’s no auto-pause option when you remove an earbud. I don’t need that, but I sure do like it. 

Beyond that, watch for David Carnoy’s upcoming in-depth Liberty 2 Pro review. (In the meantime, check out his new review of the Soundcore Liberty Air 2. Spoiler alert: Anker is really crushing it in the earbud space.) And if you’re still shopping, check out these five AirPods Pro alternatives that cost less.
