The fit is good.
I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with LDAC.
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 connection is almost always good across the obstruction, but is prone to slight interruptions.
There may be a small amount of background noise, but most people probably won't notice it.
The operating interface is a touch type.

Active noise canceling performance
SoundPEATS Life's ANC performance is standard for its price range. Overall, it reduces outside noise. The bandwidth that is effectively reduced seems to be in the mid to high frequencies, making the effect a bit hard to detect.
The SoundPEATS app is supported.
What the app allows you to do:
- Customize sound quality
- Firmware updates
- Factory reset
- Check device information

Sound quality description
The following review was tested on a FiiO M15 with an LDAC connection.
SoundPEATS Life has a unique U-shaped sound signature.
Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.
Lows / Bass
The low frequency range of the SoundPEATS Life has a very weighted sound balance. Depth is felt rather well, but it does not extend really deep.
The bass drum kick has plenty of weight and impact, and is not too tight. The rumble is lacking and lacks a bit of rawness.
The electric bass is also sufficiently black and rather expansive, but the sink is a bit lacking.
The bass is at a level that will satisfy low-frequency enthusiasts quite well, but not enough to satisfy heavy bass enthusiasts.
The midrange of the SoundPEATS Life is not linear and is somewhat challenging. The midrange is positioned a bit darker, emphasizing a sense of depth.
While this may have been adjusted to separate them from the overly strong low frequencies, the sound image is generally blurred and uncoordinated, as if heard through frosted glass.
Since the sound image sounds as if it has been stirred up, each sound image has a better spread, and some people may feel a sense of immersion as if they are enveloped by the sound. However, the separation of individual sound images is difficult to discern, and localization, texture, and transparency are adversely affected.
SoundPEATS has released a number of models that suffer from midrange linearity problems, and the Life is particularly noteworthy.
Audiophiles who are particular about the midrange will probably give it a bad rap.
Highs / Treble
High frequencies are emphasized in balance with low frequencies. High-range extension is a bit lacking.
The sense of detail is relatively high, so even though the low frequencies are strong, they do not feel so buried. The highs have a metallic sound with a strong atmosphere that is quite crunchy and gingery if you listen carefully, but due to the strong low frequencies and the overall lack of linearity, it is difficult to understand.
Sound quality general comment
Sound quality features
- There is a sense of chaos and envelopment
- Sense of depth
- Low distortion
- Overall lack of linearity, difficult to understand
- Unnatural texture
- Difficult to understand localization
- Too individualistic sound for some
SoundPEATS Life is a low-cost, app-enabled & ANC-equipped multifunction True Wireless earphones. The design is excellent and could be an attractive option for those who value functionality, but its sound is too unique to choose from. I also like the luxurious design probably the best of all previous SOUNDPEATS products, but the sound is one of the least good of all previous products.
