We’ve been fans of Anker’s Soundcore wireless buds, ever since they were called “Zolo.” Remember that? As we’ve seen over the years with the Liberty and Liberty Lite buds, they offer a beautifully bassy experience, paired with great build quality and amazing battery life.

And now you can get a pair of the Liberty Neo buds for just $50. That’s a 15-percent discount on the usual price of $64.99. Not much of a discount, admittedly, but it’s still respectably cheap.

What do you get for a bit of paper with Ulysses S. Grant’s face on it? Well, the Bluetooth 5-enabled Liberty Neo comes with 3.5 hours of continuous playtime, augmented by a charging case that adds an extra 9 hours of music. That’s roughly 12 hours of playtime in total.

It’s also IP5X rated, so you can wear them at the gym without the fear of your greasy body stank permanently breaking them.

In our experience, Anker’s Soundcore Liberty buds are among the most comfortable to wear on the market. They’re light and airy, and don’t really fall out of your ear all that much. That’s still the case here. The Liberty Neo buds are improbably svelte, weighing just 0.2 ounces (5.6 grams).

Oh, and they sound good too. That’s important.

You can pick up a pair on Amazon right now for $50. Unfortunately, they’re temporarily out of stock, but Amazon reckons it’ll get more by the end of next week. If you pre-order one now, you’ll still get the discount. And as the Guinness adverts once said, good things come to those who wait!
