Libratone AIR+ 2nd Gen True Wireless In-ear Headphone

The new Libratone AIR+ 2nd Gen True Wireless In-ear Headphone is an in-ear headphone with innovative features such as active noise cancellation, state-of-the-art audio technology, rich, balanced sound and long battery life.

Libratone AIR+ 2nd Gen True Wireless In-ear Headphone, these headphones from Libratone are now available in the latest generation. With this second generation, the manufacturer promises a solution that can boast improved intelligent noise cancellation, Smart Audio Tuning, long battery life and a revised charging case.

The Libratone AIR+ 2nd Gen True Wireless In-ear Headphone should thus prove to be an elegant solution for urban everyday life, as the Danish manufacturer itself describes it.

Active noise cancellation for urban everyday life

The Danish manufacturer particularly emphasises the active noise cancellation of the new Libratone AIR+2nd Gen True Wireless In-ear Headphone, which has been significantly improved compared to the first version of the in-ear headphones.

It is a hybrid ANC solution with a separate digital ANC chipset, says the manufacturer, which promises impressive performance with attenuation of up to 30 dB.

Ambient noise is said to be not only better but more naturally suppressed, so that the sound image remains untouched. The background noise that can often be noticed with such systems is also hardly perceptible here.

The CityMix Smart function automatically detects the environment and adapts the noise cancellation to the respective conditions, such as running, walking, sitting, wind noise and telephone calls.

The new Libratone AIR+ 2nd Gen True Wireless In-ear Headphone features a dual-mic solution in combination with ambient noise detection and intelligent speech enhancement.

Extra high sound quality

Libratone is not compromising on sound quality and has equipped the new Libratone AIR+ 2nd Gen True Wireless In-ear Headphone with two 5.3 mm drivers that, in combination with the Qualcomm QCC5141 chipset, deliver rich, balanced sound over a wide frequency range. True Wireless Mirroring guarantees a reliable and stable connection between the headphones and the source device, using Bluetooth 5.2 and the aptX codec.

Ergonomic shape and elegant design

Libratone promotes the design of the new Libratone AIR+ 2nd Gen True Wireless In-ear Headphone as downright iconic, the fact is that it is a robust design that is certified to IP54 and is thus dust, sweat and splash-proof.

Of course, the scope of delivery includes a number of earmoulds to select the best fitting variant in each case. One special function of the app belonging to the Libratone AIR+ 2nd Gen True Wireless In-ear Headphone must be highlighted, namely the Libratone smartphone app for Apple iOS and Google Android. This is a so-called fit test, which is supposed to help choose the right earbuds for the best isolation. Smart Audio Tuning is supposed to detect the wearing status and automatically adjust the sound via different EQ curves.

Transport case as charging station

Of course, a matching transport case is included in the scope of delivery, and of course it has a so-called power bank function, i.e. it has an integrated rechargeable battery.

The in-ear headphones last for six hours, according to the manufacturer, and the charging case provides a further 18 hours, so that the total playing time is up to 24 hours away from the power socket.

Charging is possible either via USB-C or via Qi wireless charging. Three LEDs on the box provide information about the charging status.

Convenient operation

We have already mentioned that an app is part of the Libratone AIR+ 2nd Gen True Wireless In-ear Headphone. This Libratone smartphone app is intended, among other things, to adapt the operation of the headphones to one’s own needs.

With it, the user can determine how the touch fields on the earbuds are assigned to control the volume or playback.

In this context, it must also be emphasised that the Libratone AIR+ 2nd Gen True Wireless In-ear Headphone has Quick Switching and can thus quickly switch between the last three connected audio source devices, whereby this is also done via the touch function on the ear tips.

The new Libratone AIR+ 2nd Gen True Wireless In-ear Headphone should be available these days, in white and black. The price is listed by the manufacturer at € 199,-, whereby interestingly, not the specialised trade is listed as the source of supply, but only online platforms, first and foremost Amazon (affiliate link).

Getting to the point

The Libratone AIR+ 2nd Gen True Wireless In-ear Headphone is the latest version of the in-ear headphones from Libratone, which, according to the manufacturer, represents a significant improvement over the first generation. In fact, the features of these True Wireless In-ear Headphones fit in well with the existing product range on the market.
