The EarFun Free Mini package meets the price standard.
There is no shortage of accessories. The package contains the following:
- EarFun Free Mini
- Charging case
- USB Type-C cable
- Eartips (3 sizes)
The build quality is good, considering the price.
It fits well in the ear and is comfortable to wear.
I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with AAC.
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. The sound is interrupted when there is an obstruction in between, but the music is still audible to a reasonable degree, although there are some skips and interruptions after that.
There may be a small amount of background noise, but most people probably won't notice it.

Sound quality description
The EarFun Free Mini's sound is a well-balanced, slightly low-frequency V-shaped signature, carefully tuned from low to high frequencies without deviating too far from the EarFun's neutral sound, and with a low price tag, but with a very good The sound balance is achieved.
The following review was tested on a FiiO M15 with an SBC connection.

Sound quality general comment
The EarFun Free Mini offers the excellent sound balance typical of EarFun at a low price, with the dynamism and groove typical of the Free series, and a deep low frequency range that is quite enjoyable.
However, when compared to the QCY T17, the Free Mini has better sound balance, but the T17 is by far superior in terms of resolution, making it hard to believe that it is in the same price range as the T17.
Sound quality features
- Excellent localization
- Relatively high fidelity of original sound

- Has a sense of richness
- Dynamic sound
- Excellent groove

- Lacks exhilaration

- Lacks high frequency extension
Even with the EarFun Free Mini, EarFun demonstrates its exceptional sound balancing technology and succeeds in providing good quality sound in the entry-level class. However, it is true that this is not a model that excels in resolution, and in this respect it falls far short of the price-over-range high-resolution sound of its rival, the QCY T17. Therefore, it is not highly recommended.
