Ultimately, these hybrid ANC wireless earbuds are perfect for a number of different types of people. They include:

Features & Benefits
Hybrid ANC Noise Cancelling
For me, personally, this feature is particularly important. I am the type of person that doesn’t like to have a lot of outside sound bleed through mucking up my listening experience. I really like to immerse myself in the music or audiobook that I’m listening to, and outside background noise can really kill the mood.
Thankfully, this product really did a great job in the noise cancelling department. Just tap on the side of the earbud using the right sequence and external sounds are no longer a problem.
The noise cancelling feature eliminates nearly all background noise, with only a tiny bit of bleed through which didn’t bother me whatsoever, but I wanted to mention it to you regardless.
Noise Cancelling Microphones
Besides the incredible listening experience, you’ll also appreciate that this product has 3 noise cancelling microphones built into the overall design.
How does it work?
Well, instead of sharing all of the background noise with the person on the other end that I’m talking to, the noise canceling microphones selectively choose my voice and keep out all of the bleed through.
This is great for the people on the other end of the conversation. And a number of my friends and family commented that my voice was coming in much clearer now that I was using these new earbuds and mics. So that’s a definite thumbs-up from me.
I’ve grown to truly appreciate these ANC noise cancelling earbuds for their durability. Unfortunately for me, I tend to be a klutz and drop things all the time.
These earbuds are sturdy and strong, so even when I accidentally knock one out of my ears and it falls on the floor, I don’t have to worry about it suddenly shattering into a million pieces. The plastic casing is strong and well put together.
Even though this product has active noise cancellation features, it also passively blocks ambient noise from the background when you have it in normal sound mode.
Is it perfect? No, because the ear tips themselves are only going to close off the ear canal to a certain degree. So, some of the background noise is definitely going to bleed into your experience. This is especially true if you’re in a space with loud background noises like large crowds, buses and other automobiles, or lawn equipment is blaring in the background.
No matter what, even with some background noise bleeding into the experience, these earbuds tend to block out enough so that it doesn’t interfere while listening to your favorite audio programs.
Bluetooth 5.2 Connectivity
As I mentioned earlier, the Bluetooth capabilities with this product are stupendous. I was incredibly impressed with how quick and effective it actually worked.
As soon as I turned on my phone’s Bluetooth, these earbuds instantly popped up on my screen and were ready to connect to my phone. I just tapped the screen to begin the connection process, and then 30 seconds later the earbuds already worked in conjunction with my phone. They sound great listening to MP3s and watching YouTube videos.
According to the product specifications, these earbuds contain battery life that’s long enough to last 9 ½ hours based on the product packaging. Remember, this only works as long as the ANC mode is turned off. But in truth, after testing and charging these earbuds multiple times, I can say that the battery life only lasts around 7-7 ½ hours before it needs a recharge, which isn’t that bad in my opinion.
On the other hand, ANC noise cancelling will drain the batteries faster by about 30%. So instead of getting 7 ½ hours of complete battery life, you’re getting more like 5 ¼ hours before you need a recharge.
So, if you’re going to need these earbuds to last while you’re on a long trip, I suggest keeping ANC mode off as much as possible. And remember, you also have a nifty charging case that you can put them in for a quick power boost whenever it’s needed.
Limitations of the Taotronics SoundLiberty Pro P10 Earbuds
Although I believe it effectively blocks some background noise while in ambient mode, there is still some bleed through. So, if you like perfect noise isolation, you’ll need to turn on the ANC noise cancellation feature to achieve the best experience.
The touch commands are definitely effective. But they take a while to get used to because there are many options. In the beginning, you’ll likely end up inputting the wrong commands, which is annoying at first. But after a while, you’ll learn the commands and this will no longer be a problem.
These earbuds do not have an accompanying app, so it’s impossible to create customized controls specific to your personal liking.
Automatic Ear Detection
This feature is a blessing and a curse. Remember when I mentioned how clumsy I am? Well, when I knock one of the earbuds out of my ear it automatically turns off the audio. This is great because I won’t lose my place, but sometimes I’d rather the audio just continue playing even if one of the earbuds is missing from my ear.
I can say with absolute certainty that the hybrid ANC feature is incredibly effective. When you have it turned on, you can mostly tune out the entire world around you with only a little bit of bleed through if you happen to be in an area where the background noise is very loud.
The great thing about this product is it was designed with the latest Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, which unquestionably has an exciting range. As a matter of fact, the total transfer distance is 50 feet from the Bluetooth enabled device. Or to put it another way, the total distance is 15 m.
If these earbuds are connected to your phone, as an example, you can walk 50 feet away and still hear audio pumping through your earbuds without any interruption whatsoever.
Even though it comes in a very small package, there are a few important components that you’ll receive that ultimately make this purchase worth your while. The components in question include:
1 set of wireless earbuds
1 charging case
1 USB-C charging cable
1 user’s guide
4 ear tips (XS, S, M, L)
