(True Wireless Earbuds Review) EarFun Air Pro 3: The world's heavyweight champion of true wireless earbuds; it is not the legitimate successor to the Air Pro 2. It's more like a top-of-the-line SoundPEATS T2.

Everything has evolved for a better sound

The new earbuds use Qualcomm's state-of-the-art QCC3071 chip, which supports the industry's latest Bluetooth 5.3 technology. It supports Bluetooth 5.3, the latest in the industry, and uses a large 11mm dynamic driver to deliver powerful bass, a wider soundstage, detailed nuances of singing voices, and the lingering sounds of musical instruments, all in pursuit of a higher quality audio experience. And it will be compatible with LE Audio, the next generation of Bluetooth audio (compatibility with compatible smartphones is required).

Connection quality

I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with aptX.

 

I don't know because I haven't been in crowds, but it is stable in the home. Distance tolerance is excellent, and the connection is seamless and intact even at a distance of about 5 meters. Communication was uninterrupted and music could be heard consistently, even across obstructions.

 

There may be a small amount of background noise, but most people probably won't notice it.

 

Interface/operation

The operating interface is a touch type.

 

Power ON Open the charging case lid
Power OFF Store the earphones in the charging case and close the lid

Switch between ANC and Hear-Through Press and hold left multifunction button for 2 seconds

Sound quality description

The following review was tested on a FiiO M15 with an aptX connection.

 

The EarFun Air 3 Pro has a heavy bass-oriented sound signature.

 

In terms of sound quality, it sounds completely different from the previous generation EarFun Air Pro 2 and is not positioned as the legitimate successor to the Air Pro 2.

EarFun Air Pro 3

 

Lows / Bass

EarFun has abandoned the neutral sound of the Air Pro 2 and has clearly turned its focus to low frequencies with the Air Pro 3. The low frequencies reach deep enough even with ANC off, but when ANC is on, they reach down to a whopping 10Hz and below. This number means that it reaches an unprecedented depth, surpassing the SoundPEATS T2's record of around 15Hz, which was the deepest I've ever heard.

www.audio-sound-premium.com

 

For example, with the Air Pro 3, you can probably hear the very bottom of the voice of Show Hayami, who has the best low frequency voice in the voice acting world and is nicknamed "the man we can't hear on speakers." If you are a fan of Show Hayami, these earphones may be the ones you cannot miss.

For true low-frequency enthusiasts who are obsessed with low frequencies, this is without a doubt the best low-frequency earphones currently available, and the only one of its kind. It is a gem that should not be missed.

 

However, it is also true that this low frequency is the source of all the disasters. The overall resolution is low due to this excessive heavy low frequency, and for some people, it may not sound good overall and may sound very cheap. Rather, unless you are a serious low-frequency enthusiast, I think it will create a controversy, so much so that even low-frequency lovers will think it is too much.

 

It is the pinnacle of the current situation for heavy bass fanatics who have the desire to hear the lowest sound anyway.

Mids

There is little to say about the midrange of the EarFun Air Pro 3: with ANC ON, the bass is too loud to be heard properly, and even with ANC OFF, the resolution is too low and the overall resonance is too strong for the individual sound image contours to be buried.

 

Distortion is quite low, so transparency is high.

 

EarFun Air Pro 3

 

Highs / Treble

In general, the high frequencies of the Air Pro 3 have a weaker presence and do not excel in extension.

 

When ANC is off, it provides relatively decent localization, but the level of detail is somewhat lacking; when ANC is off, detail improves, but localization worsens.

 

Either way, there is little to say as the sound does not hear well.

Sound quality general comment
  • Original sound fidelity: B+
  • Recommendation: B
  • Personal preference: S+

 

For those looking for a successor to the wonderful EarFun Air Pro 2, the Air Pro 3 is simply a nightmare. On the other hand, for bass fanatics who want to dive into the music itself with a sense of unity, the Air Pro 3 is the ultimate earphone in its current state, where you can get more performance than the SoundPEATS T2.

 

These earphones are not for everyone.

General comment

The EarFun Air Pro 3 is an excellent true wireless earphone with functionality and ANC performance equal to or better than the previous generation Air Pro 2. However, its sound is geared more toward low-frequency enthusiasts, and for those who preferred the excellent neutral sound of the previous generation Air Pro 2, it has been tuned to sound completely different than expected.

 

The EarFun Air Pro 3 is almost a perfect supercompatible to the SoundPEATS T2 that I have been seeking for the past year, and if you are a heavy bass fanatic, I highly recommend getting them. I couldn't be happier to finally feel like I've got the best earbuds I've ever had all year! Thank you thank you thank you EarFun. thank you so much.
