Are you looking for a pair of cheap wireless earbuds that deliver similair quality to earbuds in higher price ranges?

Finding a pair of affordable earbuds that sound great, have decent battery life, and don’t break the bank is tricky. In my experience, you’re not guaranteed to find a pair even after searching online for ages.

That is until now – I’m here to tell you about the EarFun Air Pro 3 Bluetooth earbuds. The EarFun Air Pro 3 true wireless earbuds don’t look special but they’re certainly excellent value. They perform well across the board by boasting a comfy fit, sounding pretty strong, and having decent ANC as well as multipoint pairing.

After spending the last week with these Air Pro 3 Bluetooth buds, exclusively available in black, and being pleasantly surprised, I am happy to say that EarFun may have a wireless solution that’s less than $100 for you.

EarFun Air Pro 3 wireless earbuds review

I’ll admit that I didn’t know what to expect when I first opened the simple yet subtly premium EarFun packaging. I’m not a keen user of earbuds as I much prefer over-ear cans thanks to their wider soundstage and bigger drivers, but these Air Pro 3’s do deliver really good sound quality.

Utilising Bluetooth 5.3, the Air Pro 3s can have 2 devices connected at once and they use SBC, AAC, aptX Adaptive, and LC3 Bluetooth codecs.

Sound quality

I won’t kid you, the Air Pro 3’s do have a narrower sound stage than I would usually like, but I was instantly surprised at the audio fidelity. They host 11mm wool composite dynamic drivers which allow the drivers plenty of space to vibrate which means a more responsive bass.


It goes without saying that EarFun has implemented low-end boosts (8dB with ANC) because of the driver size. Though many audio addicts prefer neutral headphones, this is much harder to achieve with earbuds because the drivers need to be so small.

In any case, I think EarFun has done a really nice job of preserving bass frequencies as speed drumming & bass guitar licks sound pretty clean through these Bluetooth earbuds. While the bass is a little thumpy with some electronic dance tracks which isn’t necessarily a negative, there’s no real boominess while bass guitars or synthesizers are delivering those low notes.


The mid-range does leave a little bit to be desired but you can make some frequency changes yourself in the graphic EQ in the EarFun companion app. While the EQ does have a fairly limited gain range, after giving a little 4dB – 6dB boost at 500Hz & 1kHz I noticed snare drums started to pop more alongside distorted guitar tones and large neuro basses.

Before any EQ’ing, the mids sounded a little boxed in but the response I got after applying these little boosts added more colour to my listening experience. Nevertheless, the Air Pro 3’s actually do a great job of keeping vocals front & centre – and even more so after a little bit of EQ’ing – while retaining clarity in all instrumentation occurring behind vocals.


The highs, meanwhile, deliver enough air that gives drum cymbals the space to show off their texture and shimmer in a mix. Unfortunately, there is a slight lack of clarity in the treble range that does slightly box the highs in but this is only noticeable in quiet listening spaces. Though I wouldn’t say this impacts the listening experience too much because these Bluetooth buds are for casual listening and I think they fill this role very well.

After increasing the level at and above 5kHz by a few notches in the companion EQ, I was again surprised at the response in the earbuds. The brightness added after an increase of just 4-6dB is well-defined in your ears as cymbals suddenly start to build a life of their own. But I did have to turn the EQ down slightly at the same frequencies as vocal sibilance became more present.


Due to the driver size, the Air Pro 3 suffer from a smaller soundstage like a lot of other earbuds, but these earbuds do offer a sound stereo field with a good amount of space so that the stereo field isn’t too caged in on itself. Nevertheless, if you’re prioritising sound stage then I wouldn’t recommend buying a pair of earbuds full stop.

Noise cancellation (ANC)

The EarFun Air Pro 3’s offers 3 noise cancelling modes – ANC, Normal, and Ambient. I don’t think the ANC in these Air Pros is the best but it is decent. I’ve noticed that they do eliminate noise such as office chatter and even the sound of a busy high street, but they aren’t so good at eliminating low-end rumble sounds like bus & car engines – though they’re great at eliminating chatter.

Once you’ve got some music playing those low-end rumbles do begin to become unnoticeable for the most part but they’re still a little present


The EarFun Air Pro wireless buds feel lightweight and do sit in-ear comfortably. Their design is a little slimmer than their predecessors – the Air Pro 2 True Wireless – and their stem isn’t as long so they don’t press into my cheeks, but they do stick out of my ear slightly.

However, I have noticed that they can get uncomfortable over long listening sessions. EarFun provides 4 pairs of silicone ear tips (S, M, L, XL) for different ear sizes, but the buds themselves are pretty weighty and can cause ear fatigue as they press into my ear.

I should also state that the Air Pro 3s aren’t stable enough for use during exercise. They tend to come loose after a while of walking so fi you’re into that gym lifestyle – which I am not – you may be better off looking elsewhere.

Battery life

Ear Fun provides a slick charging case that sits in a backpack or a pocket easily. The case itself requires 2 hours of charging until full while the headphones will give you 2 hours of playtime after just ten minutes in the charging case.

EarFun promises a total of 45 hours of playtime with these buds. I haven’t monitored the exact battery life down to the minute but I know I haven’t had 45 hours of playtime. There have been days where I’ve taken the buds out of the case in the morning and they’re dead by lunchtime which, by my time, is far from 45 hours. Though this may only be a technical issue with the pair I have here, it’s something EarFun may want to take a look at for future models.

Touch controls

The touch controls are my least favourite part of the EarFun Air Pro 3s if I’m honest. My experience with them has been very fiddly and when a respective bud comes loose in my ear I end up turning the volume up or down when readjusting – a little frustrating.

The touch sensor relies on a singular or sequence of taps which tell the buds whether to increase or decrease the volume (one tap), play/pause (two taps), skip track (triple tap), and adjust ANC mode (long press). While these functions do work as specified, they’re a little awkward if you have hair over your ears like me and they can be pretty fiddly from time to time regardless.

However, the companion app provides easy access to these controls so I use my mobile to adjust the ANC mode, volume and so on instead.

Call quality

EarFun has utilized a 6-mic array for wireless phone calls and I wasn’t disappointed. Upon testing, I could hear my colleague on the other end of the phone pretty clearly with no confusion as to what was said – until their signal cut out, that is.


Finally, I think it’s time to talk about the companion app. This is definitely one of the simplest companion apps I’ve used and while it isn’t packed with every feature under the sun, it does provide the features you need.

For one, you can easily switch between Noise Cancelling, Ambient Sound, and Normal listening modes; you can activate game mode which is a low-latency, short-range listening mode with EQ adjustments specifically for game audio; as well as access the graphic EQ where you can make custom EQs. The app hasn’t crashed once and everything is laid out nicely, so darting between features is a smooth experience.

Switching between nose-cancelling modes is seamless too, and the EQ is very easy to get along with while adjusting the touch controls is effortless. In truth, the EarFun app itself is one of the best companion apps I’ve used to date!

Final thoughts

And that’s a wrap! I think EarFun’s Air Pro 3 true wireless earbuds are a solid buy for those looking for affordable Bluetooth buds. Though I felt a little underwhelmed by the battery life, I was impressed with the sound quality and noise cancelling. After all, having the wireless charging case to hand mitigates the battery issue. Just ten minutes of charging give you two hours of play time and I’m pretty happy with that.

Ultimately, you should buy the Air Pro 3’s if you want an enjoyable listening experience for half the cost of premium true wireless earbuds. They’re comfortable for the most part and do offer a decent sound stage, just one that’s not all that immersive. The Air Pro 3’s give you a lot of bang for your buck – buck less than $100!
