EarFun Air Pro 3: Now You Can Have It All!

EarFun Air Pro 3 Noise Cancelling Earbuds

Hey everybody! Today, I’m going to review the EarFun Air Pro 3 headphones – a worthy alternative to the AirPods Pro 2. I’m excited to check them out because the Air Pro lineup is usually one of their best. And, since EarFun hasn’t released a product in a while, this leads me to think that they’ve put a lot of time into developing these earbuds. And yes, the EarFun Air Pro 3 are some of the most featured earbuds that you’re going to get in this price range. So I think a lot of people are going to be excited about them.

Wireless charging

Now, let’s go ahead and jump into all that they’ve included in the box. It does come with 4 sets of silicone ear tips. It also comes with a USB Type-C cable. Surprisingly, in this price range, the cases on these are Qi wireless charging compatible. So, you can just drop it on a wireless charger, and it will start charging that way. And that’s really impressive because I’ve seen some earbuds lately for around a hundred dollars that don’t include this feature.

EarFun Air Pro 3: battery life

Speaking of charging, the battery life is also very impressive on this pair. If you use it with the noise canceling turned off, you can get about 9 hours on the earbuds and approximately 45 hours using the case. Even with the noise canceling on, you’ll still get about 7 hours on the earbuds and around 37 hours using the case.

Oh, EarFun Air Pro 3! I'm very happy with these earbuds!
“They connect great with my iPhone15 Pro, with plenty of crisp sound & bass, and if don’t like the bass, you have the option to change it, the ambiance is cool, you can hear pretty much all around you with that feature on, the noise cancellation I would say is almost as good as the AirPod pros 2nd gen, the listed price for these earbuds are $80 but with an amazon coupon it brings it down to a total price of $55 bucks and I think it’s way worth buying these if you’re not wanting to spend 300 dollars which in my opinion pretty much do the same as these do if not better.”

Fast charging

The EarFun Air Pro 3 also has a fast charge feature. If you’re walking out the door and realize your earbuds are dead, you can just charge them for 10 minutes and get up to 2 hours of use. So this is really helpful for those who don’t always make sure their pair is charged.

EarFun Air Pro 3: appearance

Let’s move over to looking at the actual case and the earbuds themselves.

The case is plastic: it is a fingerprint magnet. And honestly, there’s nothing special about the case. On the back, you can see the USB-C input for charging. And then, around on the front, it has three indicator lights (this is how you gauge how much battery life is left on the case). But when you pop open the lid, you can see that there is a pairing button located between both earbuds.

The EarFun Air Pro 3 earbuds are a stem-style design. Now, you’ll either love or hate this. I’m normally not the biggest fan of a stem-style earbud: I just think it stands out more. But I have realized a lot of the good earbuds are stem-style earbuds, so I’ve gotten used to using these.

The EarFun Air Pro 3 buds do use touch controls, and I’m happy to say that they give you control over everything. So you have your play, pause, ability to skip tracks forward, go backward, summon your smart assistant, and turn the noise canceling on – you can do all of that right out of the box.

EarFun Audio app

You can also manage these headphones through the EarFun Audio app: you can go in and switch around the controls if you want. But some other advantages of using the app are that you can always have the earbuds updated.

Some pre-built EQ settings are very important with the EarFun Air Pro 3 earbuds, but you can also go in and customize the EQ settings yourself, which I’ll show you once we get to the sound. Additionally, this pair has a multi-point connection, so you can connect it to more than one device at a time. You can also go in and switch it from your noise canceling to your transparency mode or just turn both of those off altogether.

Noise canceling

Speaking of noise canceling, this is an area where I was very impressed. In this price range, this is very good noise canceling, not just the kind that subtly dulls things out. This really jumps up a notch and starts to block out a lot of people talking and higher-pitched sounds without overly affecting the music. Now, it does bump up the low end just a little bit with the noise canceling on, so do keep that in mind if that’s where you plan on keeping it. Also, in transparency mode, because they’re using so many microphones, you really do have good awareness of your surroundings while it’s in transparency mode. I mean, I could easily carry on a conversation without taking the earbuds out. I can be out for a walk or run and just be very aware of my surroundings.

These EarFun headphones are great!
“The sound is outstanding! ANC and ambient are really good. Battery life is outstanding! The buds don’t fall out while doing activities. For the price, I don’t think you can beat these!”

EarFun Air Pro 3: other tech

Also, in the app, you can turn on gaming mode to reduce latency. And I’m also going to touch on one other thing. The EarFun Air Pro 3 is one of the first pairs – in fact, it may be the first pair – to use LE Audio (which is low-energy audio) and also the LC3 codec.

LC3 utilizes a new compression algorithm for higher-quality audio at a lower bit rate. This means less data will be transmitted, resulting in lower power consumption without compromising sound.

Regarding some other tech of these earbuds, they feature Bluetooth 5.3. They also utilize a Qualcomm 3071 chip and support aptX Adaptive playback.

The aptX Adaptive codec always ensures that you’re getting the best quality possible, depending on what you’re listening to.

If you’re considering this pair for use at the gym, beach, or anywhere outdoors, it comes with an IPX5 rating. That’s slightly higher than most noise-canceling earbuds, which usually sit around an IPX4. So it’ll be fine if it gets rain, sweat, and splashes, but it isn’t designed to be submerged in water.

If you’re considering this pair for taking phone calls while you’re at work or on a run, this pair features 6 microphones. It uses CVC 8.0 environmental noise canceling, attempting to block out a lot of your surroundings. I think the mic quality on here is pretty impressive.


Now let’s talk about the sound. The EarFun Air Pro 3 uses 11-millimeter wool composite drivers. I think it’s a little too strong out of the box, with a heavy emphasis on bass. It’s boomy and affects the mids and treble. Initially, I didn’t enjoy using these, which is surprising because I usually like the way EarFun tunes their products.

Some users may find it challenging if they don’t want to download the app or aren’t familiar with equalizing their earbuds. I’ll show you below the EQ settings that I used to adjust the sound to my liking. As you can see, I had to decrease the bass significantly and slightly increase the midrange, while also boosting the treble quite a bit.

My personal EQ settings for EarFun Air Pro 3.

Well, to wrap all of the above mentioned up, I can definitely recommend the EarFun Air Pro 3 for such a reasonable price. It really is competing with others in an even higher price range.

I hope you enjoyed this review. Thanks for reading! Also, please make sure to read my previous budget earbuds reviews: PocBuds T60, TAGRY X08, and TOZO A1.
