To pair the Life A2 NC, simply open the charging base and remove the two earphones. Thus, they connect to each other and are already available in the Bluetooth list.
Ah, this model has simultaneous connection! Therefore, the earphones can be used separately.

Soundcore Life A2 NC: fixation

Soundcore Life A2 NC: ANC modes
It’s time to know the 3 effective ANC modes of this Soundcore:
“Transport” mode is a mode that cancels out mid-range sounds such as engine noise. So this is the perfect mode to use it while traveling by bus or plane!
The second mode, “Indoor”, is designed to cancel out constant voices and sounds, such as the fan. So, you can use this mode to relax at home while enjoying your music.
The “Outdoor” mode was created to completely cancel any sound. So if you’re in a safe place and want to be sound isolated, this is the perfect mode!
Now you might be wondering: but wasn’t it 5 modes?
Yea! In addition to effective cancellations, Life A2 NC has two modes of transparency.
One of the modes is a voice amplifier that ensures sound quality, so you can chat while listening to your favorite music.
And the second mode lets you hear all the sounds around you, but without losing the musical quality.
All modes did very well in our tests!
Soundcore Life A2 NC: audio test, microphone test and delay test
We opened our tests with the sound quality test, which was done with the standard equalization.
The Life A2 NC has proven to have a good volume level that, while not too loud, is ideal for enjoying your music while preserving your hearing health.
It has a great stereo effect and a very full sound where you feel the beat of the music.
And although the bass is more prominent, all tones are very well defined!
In our delay test, the Life A2 NC showed a slight delay of less than 0.5 seconds. However, this delay was noticed when we tested it on an entry-level smartphone, the Galaxy A01.
Fortunately, when tested on an intermediate smartphone, there was no sound delay.
During the microphone test, Soundcore showed that it really is a complete earphone!
It delivers audio with a good volume level, zero muffling and very little noise. Therefore, this microphone can be used in games and video conferences.
