Connection quality

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

 

I don't know, I haven't been in crowded places, but it is stable in my home. Distance tolerance is excellent, and the connection is seamless and intact even at a distance of about 5 meters. The connection was stable across the shielding, and we were able to listen to music consistently thereafter.

 

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

The operating interface is a touch type.

Sound quality description

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

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

 

The EarFun Air S is an excellent fully wireless earphone with very good neutral balance and very low distortion. The downside is the low resolution, which makes them more suitable for listening while doing something than for serious listening purposes.

 

In terms of sound quality, the Air Pro 2 is generally better than the price difference, and its superior ANC performance and other features make it highly recommended. Unless you are attracted to the included apps, you may want to buy the Air Pro 2.

General comment

The EarFun Air S is the latest addition to the Air series, a new listening earphone from an excellent brand. It offers performance beyond its price point with excellent sound balance and excellent low distortion, but ANC performance is lacking and resolution is quite modest. The lack of resolution makes these earphones more of a casual listening earphone for listening while listening than for serious audio appreciation.

 

They may not be a bad or even above-average choice in their price range, but they are not outstanding. Our blog continues to recommend the Air Pro 2 as the best buy in this price range.
