'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards.

Get the Soundcore Liberty Buds Pro 3 at its lowest price ever

For only $89, you'll have noise-canceling earbuds backed by over 20 Grammy-winning producers and artists.

Soundcore's Liberty Buds Pro 3 earbuds are a great way to experience audio on the go. As a part of Best Buy's Black Friday in July sale, they're priced at only $89 -- their lowest price ever.

I use these earbuds as my go-to for commuting on the subway or when I'm flying because the noise canceling is one of the best for their price point. The noise canceling works so well that I don't have to worry about external noises while I'm listening to my podcasts or music. They also come with a transparency mode for when you need to hear the outside world, and they pack such solid noise-filtering options that we've even added them to our lineup of best earbuds.

Noise-canceling features aside, the earbuds' accompanying app offers specialized audio settings for podcasts and various genres of music. Alternately, you can also build your own audio adjustments in the app and save them. No matter what you choose, the buds' signature HearID and 3D surround sound make for a great listening experience. In fact, they come backed by over 20 Grammy-winning producers and artists for their top-notch audio quality.

With up to 32 hours of playtime and an IPX4 waterproof rating, they're perfect for long-haul flights, rainy day commutes, and so much more. Right now, both the black and the white pairs are on sale for $89.99. It's a steal of a deal compared to the usual $169.99 price tag, so be sure to add them to your cart today.
