'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. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro deal: Save $40 on the noise-canceling earbuds right now

If you're looking for a solid pair of noise canceling earbuds, but don't want to drop a couple hundred dollars on a high-end pair, Soundcore has you covered. The Liberty 3 Pro noise canceling earbuds pack some of the best noise canceling features into a tiny set of earbuds thanks to HearID ANC technology. Right now, they're on sale for $129, down from their usual $169 price tag.

For transparency purposes, I purchased these earbuds earlier this year because I wanted a noise canceling feature that was stronger than my Samsung Galaxy Buds Live earbuds. Based on my experience with the Liberty 3 Pro earbuds, I can be working in the living room and can't hear my cats begging for treats or even my partner speaking to me. The HearID works almost too well for those that need to focus or block out a noisy subway train.

Additionally, you can adjust the audio to your preferences. Whether you want to catch up on Crime Junkie or are obsessed with Kendrick Lamar's Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, you can go into the accompanying Soundcore app to find a series of preset audio settings. Alternately, you can build your own for a customized audio experience or use one of the presets designed by 20 Grammy-winning artists.

The battery life lasts long for noise canceling earbuds: up to eight hours on a single charge on the regular settings (five with HearID ANC active). Because they come with a series of adjustable ear tips, you can get your perfect fit and enjoy long hours with them in your ears.

While this isn't the lowest price we've seen -- that belongs to the $99 price back in April -- it's still a great deal. Coupled with supply chain issues and shortages that are still plaguing most retailers since 2020, this is the lowest price we expect these earbuds to drop as we head into summer. And if you want a splash of personalized flair, they come in four colors: dusk purple, midnight black, fog gray, and frost white.
