Connection quality

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

 

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 sound tends to be choppy across the obstruction, but the connection is maintained.

 

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

 

Interface/operation

The operating interface is a touch type.

Honor Choice EarBuds X3 Lite

 

Sound quality description

Honor EarBuds X3 Lite has a typical V-shaped sound signature with a concave midrange center.

 

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

 

Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.

  

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

 

Its imaging performance is high, and its sound balance emphasizes a sense of three-dimensionality, so its beauty is that it delivers sound with a great sense of depth. However, the midrange is dark and the texture expression is unnatural, and the sound is not suitable for audiophiles who generally place importance on the midrange.

General comment

Honor EarBuds X3 Lite is an earphone that gives a typical V-shaped sound with high resolution. While the depth of sound is attractive and clean, the midrange is dark and the textures are not as accurate as they could be. Basically, these earphones are not suitable for audiophiles.
