I'm interested in giving the LPro2 another chance - if the impressions continue to be good. I wanted to give them a little time to fix any of the other quality/tuning issues that may crop up.Shame you didn't care for the Lp2 Pro. Have them in right now, listening to an acoustic jazz album, The Coryells, and they sound pretty amazing. I have owned some premium BT phones (Senn TWS, latest Sony offering, IQBuds) and many pair of cheaper BT phones (still have a couple, from OCY and Tranya) and the LP2s are fantastic. Also own the Cambridge Audio Melomania 1, which I also like a lot. I use Comply foam (bulby) with the LP2 and had to remove the "wings" cause they hurt after 20-30 minutes. But even without the wings, they do stay in place, though not recommeded for running, gym etc.
Anyway, I have not tried the LP non-pro. Why not give the LP2 a second chance? Apparently, the hiss issue has been fixed and Anker Soundcore is replacing the sets that are affected. Saw tht on Amazon in the Q&A area.
For me, I didn't really have an issue with hiss, just very compressed highs/treble and way recessed mids. I would be pretty floored if everyone else's sounded like mine and no one mentioned it - so I am leaning toward a bad set.
That being said, I'm interested to hear the Liberty 2 - better water resistance, hopefully similarly good calls, and I'm usually a DD guy - so maybe I'll like the sound sig more? In any case, the curiosity was killing me in that I liked the LPro2 package so much before I critically listened/compared.
I'll let you all know!
