Design

It has a flat design, and the surface on the neck has linear grooves that run along its length. 

The buttons and charging ports are located on the left side of the earphones. The earpiece looks very small without the ear wing. It comes with a tip of silicone. Anker ships four pairs of silicone ear tips and the same number of pairs of ear wings. Even the wire, though slim, is on the heavier side. 

Similarly, the wire was reinforced where it entered the earbuds. That being said, my earphone is more slippery. Even with light movement, it kept slipping. 

Connectivity

Turn on the Soundcore Rise for the initial connection by pressing and holding down the play/pause button for a second. Then enter the pairing mode by pressing and holding down the same button for 4 seconds. 

The LED is starting to blink blue. Search for Soundcore Rising and hit Connect. Once connected, the LED will turn to a steady blue color. From next time on, the earphone will automatically connect to the device. 

The theoretical range of earphones is 10m. However, at the same distance, I found that the connection is weaker than that offered by the Redmi SonicBass Wireless Earphones. 

Perhaps it is because obsolete Bluetooth 4.1 is supported by the Soundcore Increase. Press and hold the play/pause button for 3 seconds in case you want to disconnect the earphone from the attached unit and pair it with another one. The earphone disconnects from the current system and re-enters the mode of pairing.

Controls

Anker Soundcore Rise has 8mm drivers, which may not sound like a lot, but for the price it performs decently. 

The thing I like most about this earphone is that it separates songs. It is possible to note each instrument and there is hardly any blending between any two of them. Similarly, I’m still not going to complain about the bass.

  • Full Range 8mm Drivers
  • 20Hz-Frequency response of 20kHz

Battery

The company estimates up to 12 hours of continuous reproduction time when talking about the battery. In this review of Anker Soundcore Rise, I wanted to test the argument.

 I was able to get up to 10.5 hours of playback time on one single full charge. That’s between 50 and 70% in terms of volume. For charging, Soundcore Rise features a micro USB port on the left side.

It’s pretty easy to talk about the charging process. Getting to 100 percent from 0 percent takes about 1.5 hours. Thankfully, with a charging cable inside the case, the Soundcore Rise actually ships.

 Many brands of accessories do not bother to include this in their budget items.

Conclusion

For a closer fit and improved wire handling, the earphone vessels with numerous ear wings and clippers. The music is well separated, despite having smaller 8mm drivers, and the bass also sounds good.
