Design

The most polarizing part of the Spirit X2’s design will undoubtedly be the large earhooks that swing up and cradle the backs of your ears. In a world where pint-sized true wireless earbuds have taken the market by storm, the larger footprint of these earphones will likely grant them the moniker of the ugly duckling of the bunch.

An IP68 weather-resistance rating gives the Spirit X2 protection against rain and complete submersion in up to two meters of water for no more than 30 minutes. Even though Soundcore says these earphones aren’t designed for swimming, showering, or exposure to pool or ocean water, this is still a rock-solid rating for a product this affordable.

Audio quality

Anker has put a lot of effort into marketing the low-end capabilities of the Spirit X2. The company has included a technology called “BassTurbo” which it says is inspired by tech found in high-end speakers. Essentially, the tech “positions an acoustic chamber behind the (12mm) driver” to add low-end resonance. Simply put, it seems like a lot for $80 earphones to be capable, so naturally, I went right to bass-heavy tracks when I began listening with the Spirit X2.
