The Anker Soundcore Life Dot 2 XR true wireless earbuds are on sale today. You can get them for just $49.99 as part of Best Buy's Deals of the Day. That's a huge discount considering the same earbuds normally sell for $100 at Best Buy, and you can still find them going for that price at other retailers like Target. At this price the Life Dot 2 XR earbuds are the same price as the version that doesn't include active noise-cancelling, which is a huge feature to be essentially getting for no extra cost.
The hybrid active noise-cancelling is the major selling point for these earbuds. The ANC actually has multiple modes you can choose from so you decide just what you want to hear. Listen to your music in any situation, but let some of that ambient noise through when you need to like when taking public transportation or when listening in an office setting. The decision is yours to make.
One of the failings of ANC is usually the battery life, but that's not such a big deal with these earbuds. The version without ANC can actually last for up to 100 hours before you ever need a cable for anything, and the Life Dot 2 XR earbuds can last for up to 7 hours on a single charge with a total of 35 hours using the included wireless charging case. That's an impressively long time to spend just jamming to your favorite tunes.
You can also use the free Soundcore app to customize your earbuds or even change what the touch controls do. You can even adjust the sound profile for your particular musical tastes.
Other features include an oversized 11mm driver for powerful, accurate music, and four built-in mics with beamforming for taking phone calls while eliminating background noise.
