      Hi Linus Tech, love your page and reviews. Try to watch you guys videos as much as can, especially about true wireless headphones. I used your promo code(thank you so much, love the savings$). Unfortunately I didn't win the custom earphones😥. Due to back order I just received my Liberty 2 yesterday(one of the best sounding true wireless I've heard so far). Just wanted to follow up in regards to the custom LTT earphones and would love to order one if possible or even get info on how I can get mines custom with my initial. Please contact me at [email protected] if you can help. Thank you again and keep up the great content.

      ​@marcelo guanco depends on the interface. M.2 is an interface but not the entire name of the interface. the most standard m.2 (as far as i know) is the M.2 2280/2240. which is an SSD.
      if you meant having a normal 2.5 inch sata disc and an M.2 ssd then the answer is yes. just remember to format the drive once inserted

          I tried THREE pairs of these Liberty 2 Pro's, and each had the same
          problem: every 18-19 seconds, I would hear a click, followed by a
          left/right phasing glitch, which corrected itself after a second.
          Needless to say, this constantly recurring glitch made the buds
          unusable. Has anyone else encountered this problem with these buds?

                  Yet again, no mention of sound quality... WHY!? Although Ive seen reviews elsewhere and they are supposed to be very good. (not that we would have any idea based on this "showcase.")

                    Watched this back when it was released at 4 in the morning, pre ordered it out of a whim because... 4 in the morning and I got to say--after receiving them, they are by far my FAVORITE true wireless headphones. Probably the best impulse buy I ever did.

                                        I just got mine and I fucking love these things. The bass and the treb is perfectly balanced. Like it is said I do wish there were on board volume control but this is countered with the apps configurator.

                                            hello, wonderful review. An information. I would love to buy this product but from the reviews I read I noticed that there is talk of static background noise (when the headphones are paused or when you listen to a pod cast) is this problem too? Can the sound quality of the music be affected? thanks in advance for your reply

                                                To all the people that complain about sponsored content, this video helped me, a dude ignorant about the world of good headphones and IEMs, dip my toes into it. After watching it, I went into the comments, expecting to learn something new. And lo and behold, I learned about the world of chi-fi and that headphones/IEMs don't have to be expensive to be good. For the next 3 hours, I was reading reviews on Audiobudget.com and finally settled on the BQEYZ KB1. Finally got them today, and I'm loving them! And they only cost $45 CAD.

                                                Moral of the story is be helpful.

                                                    How intense is the isolation. I like being able to pause music, forget i have earbuds in, and have a conversation with someone. I currently use Pixel USB-C earbuds and i love the open sound, but i've yet to find a pair of true wireless that have a open sound. They all seem to have rubber tips that'll block out most of the sound.

                                                      Big issue I have with these thus far.
                                                      Bulk in the ear looks like an hearing aid! There is no volume control button! Stay away from the left ear piece it calls people randomly! Also be sure to carry your case with ya because I’ve had my ear pieces in my pullover pocket also randomly dialing.

                                                        Received my pair two days ago. I suppose I should try some other wireless ear buds to make a comparison. The sound is what it should be for what it's advertised to be, without comparison with other earbuds I should refrain comment beyond that on the sound too much, for what you can shoehorn into that little wireless package with a battery they're really good. Rich texture, full sounding, not too bright, not too warm (I'm not a practiced audiophile reviewer, if that wasn't obvious already). Something to note, I like some bass, but using the Soundcore Signature setting (the one that works with the hearing test to customize to your hearing) I had to go into my music player's EQ and flatten everything out, something I don't normally do because I'm not into flat signature sound at all, so the Soundcore Signature has a bass curve in it already, some audiophiles won't like that. I do have some minor hearing loss in the mid-range and I am excited that I can make out lyrics more clearly! For that plus them being a very capable earbud, I'll give them five stars.

                                                          I actually wish they had a wire connecting the two, for longer distance & increased battery life. Also makes them harder to lose.

In my personal opinion we don't need your 4 mins add videos in this channel, without a decent evaluation of the product that is being showcased. Otherwise, where do you draw the line between a TV commercial and an LTT video? I love you guys. But to be honest, between these non-sense showcase videos and awkward lttstore.com promotions right in the middle of every single video doesn't give me much hope on where this channel is heading to. This being said, I believe in constructive criticism. So here are a couple recommendations: Maybe you can consider adding the word "Commercial" while naming these add videos. At the end of every video you may add a short section that promotes an item from lttstore.com. What I mean to say is that don't try to trick people into watching what they don't want to watch. YouTube Tech Channels are a dime a dozen. I believe you should try to balance the revenue and subscriber expectations, not favoring the first over the latter.
