SoundPEATS Air4 Earbuds Review

SoundPEATS Air4 Wireless Earbuds with Snapdragon Sound

Hello guys! Today we’re going to take a look at the SoundPEATS Air4. These earbuds offer a ton of value without breaking the bank. You’ll see what I mean once you hear about all the features you’re getting and compare them to AirPods (because that’s where I would place them).

The SoundPEATS Air4 are semi-open earbuds, meaning they don’t use ear tips. The interesting thing about these is they have hybrid active noise canceling without using ear tips. I haven’t seen a company pull that off effectively in the past, but what this pair is doing is fascinating.


The SoundPEATS Air4 earbuds have Snapdragon Sound, so if you have a phone with a compatible Snapdragon chip, you can enjoy aptX lossless playback, which is incredible. You’re getting 24-bit playback up to 96 kHz, which is essentially CD quality, on a pair of true wireless earbuds for under 60 bucks. On top of that, they’re using Bluetooth 5.3. You also get aptX Adaptive HD, aptX Low Latency, and a gaming mode.

aptX Adaptive Lossless Audio

Combining this with Bluetooth 5.3, which already reduces lag and latency for videos, movies, and games, the aptX Low Latency mode and the gaming mode further cut down lag. In fact, it claims 88 milliseconds, which is almost instant. I didn’t notice any lag, making them great for all media types. This pair also has a multi-point connection, allowing you to connect to more than one device at a time. This feature is usually found on more expensive models, so seeing it on a pair under $60 is really nice.

SoundPEATS App

The SoundPEATS Air4 pair also works with the SoundPEATS app. But don’t expect anything special here ᅳ it’s pretty bare-bones. It doesn’t look like much of an app, but it allows you to keep the earbuds updated. The app also has an adaptive EQ feature, which conducts a hearing test and creates an EQ setting based on your preferences from the test. Additionally, you can turn noise canceling on or switch to normal mode. These are the two different modes you can use. The app also offers some pre-built EQ options, or you can customize the EQ settings to your liking, which I think is a really nice touch.

Touch controls

You can also disable the touch controls, which is useful if you move around your earbuds a lot or if you’re at the gym and don’t want to accidentally change tracks or perform other actions. Speaking of the touch controls, I’m happy to say that these give you control over everything right out of the box. You have play, pause, track skipping forward and backward, volume control, the ability to switch to gaming mode, and the option to turn on noise canceling mode.

Noise canceling

The SoundPEATS Air4 is a semi-open pair that doesn’t use ear tips, so you wouldn’t expect it to have noise canceling, let alone effective noise canceling. However, these earbuds manage to pull it off. You need to make sure the earbuds are pushed in enough to create a bit of a seal. When you turn the noise canceling on, you can immediately tell that the microphones are working to dampen surrounding noises, effectively dulling the sounds around you.


Now let’s talk about sound. The SoundPEATS Air4 earbuds use 13-millimeter dynamic drivers. I was very surprised by their performance. Straight out of the box, the sound was a little too warm for my taste. It didn’t seem to bring out the mids and treble much. However, once I turned on the noise canceling and activated the vocal/treble boost mode, it was like the perfect alignment of how these earbuds should sound. The treble became much more pronounced, without getting too bright or harsh, bringing out a lot more detail. The noise canceling also made the bass punchier, yet still tight overall. It wasn’t sloppy bass that overwhelmed everything else, which was a surprise given that, out of the box, the bass felt a bit too bloated and not as refined as it is with noise canceling on.
