Review: HONOR Earbuds 3 Pro

Published

on

When it comes to wireless earbuds, there are three main factors that are very important. The design and build quality, the audio quality, and the price. There are only a few earbuds on the market that fulfill all three factors, and the HONOR Earbuds 3 Pro is one of them.

I have been using the HONOR Earbuds 3 Pro for a week now and the company just announced its official launch in the UAE market. The Earbuds 3 Pro are HONOR’s flagship true wireless stereo earbuds. It has a soft curved design, almost like a pebble, and feels very nice to hold in the hands.

On the front, you have an LED that is used to indicate the charging status and Bluetooth connectivity status. On the rear, you’ve got the metallic HONOR branding. On the right edge, you’ve got a button that when pressed, gets the earbuds into the pairing mode. And on the bottom edge, you have the USB Type-C charging port.

The earbuds themselves are quite lightweight at just 5.1-gms each, while the charging case weighs 42.6-gms. The case is also small and light, and hence, the earbuds can be easily taken out of it with one hand. The earbuds are also designed to fit the ear canal and it fits really snuggly. The earbuds are also quite comfortable to wear during longer sessions.

Inside the box, apart from the HONOR Earbuds 3 Pro, you also get two extra sets of ear tips – one pair of small ear tips and one pair of large ear tips. You also get the USB Type-C charging cable, the warranty info, and the quick start guide.

In terms of design, the HONOR Earbuds 3 Pro is brilliant. They are well built and lightweight and offer a good battery life. Each of the earbuds has touch sensors built-in. You can tap on them twice to start or stop the music and pick up and end calls. and you can swipe your finger up and down on the earbuds’ stem to increase or decrease the volume level.

HONOR also offers a very useful app for the Earbuds 3 Pro, called AI Space. This app allows you to edit the actions on the touch sensors to some degree. You’ll also be able to see which devices are registered for connection, as these earbuds can be connected to more than one device at the same time. You’ll also be able to switch between regular mode, ANC, and awareness mode via this app.

In terms of ANC, or Active Noise Cancellation, you get four modes to choose from. These include Ultra, Cozy, General, and an AI Cancellation mode, which tries to adjust its strength depending on your surroundings. There is also a dedicated VPU (Voice Pick Up) sensor, which enhances your voice during calls, by reducing the ambient noise, and also helping remove wind noise.

The new HONOR Earbuds 3 Pro comes with FF+FB dual active noise reduction, which intelligently adjusts the noise reduction depth according to different environmental noises. The dual microphones outside the ear, monitor the wind condition in real-time and automatically adjust the main and auxiliary microphones to reduce wind noise interference, thus making the music and calls smooth and clear when walking.

And when awareness mode is on, the Earbuds 3 Pro intelligently detects the audio leakage of your ear and your unique wearing style. A customised Awareness Mode is then applied for a better audio experience.

Connecting the Earbuds 3 Pro to an HONOR device is very simple. If your Bluetooth connection is switched on, on your HONOR smartphone, a connection prompt will pop up when the charging case cover is opened. You can then complete the connection in just one click.

The Honor Earbuds 3 Pro also supports quick switching between the two most recently connected devices without the need to “disconnect” and then pair and supports real-time audio switching in multiple scenarios. Users can switch back and forth on devices such as mobile phones and computers.

In addition, if you play games, the HONOR Earbuds 3 Pro also offers good performance. These earbuds support automatic recognition of game applications and switch to low-latency game mode to achieve better audio and video synchronisation.

One of the stand-out features of the HONOR Earbuds 3 Pro is its in-ear temperature measurement. The earbuds can measure temperature once if you tap the stem of the earbuds thrice. It also offers continuous temperature monitoring, wherein the earbuds measure the temperature every 10 minutes automatically and the readings are then available through the HONOR AI Space app.

The audio quality of the HONOR Earbuds 3 Pro is brilliant. The highs, mids, and lows were excellent, while the bass performance was on point. The audio quality in songs was very good, too. Battery life is very good and charging the earbuds quickly isn’t an issue, since the HONOR Earbuds 3 Pro comes with the world’s first 5C Fast Charging Technology.

Just a charge of 5 minutes, will give you 2 hours of music playback. And 10 minutes of charging will give you up to a 65% charge. The earbuds also support wireless charging and smartphone reverse charging. The earbuds offer a playback time of 6 hours on a single charge, while you get up to 24 hours of playtime with the charging case.

The HONOR Earbuds 3 Pro is available for a price of AED 649, which sounds like an excellent offer. The Earbuds 3 Pro offers an excellent design and build quality, offers awesome audio quality, in-ear temperature measurement, ANC, and lots more. The HONOR Earbuds 3 Pro thus walks away with the Gadget Voize Recommended award!

Beoplay EX differs most notably from previous Bang & Olufsen earphones in the shape of its design. Designed by Thomas Bentzen, the stem-based shape has been adopted and transformed into a finished offering that is equal parts stylish and comfortable. The housing of the earphone placed inside the ear is smaller than ever before and ensures a comfortable and stable fit that can be worn for hours without readjustment.

The practicality of this new shape is matched with the signature Bang & Olufsen aesthetic, perfected over 96 years of craftsmanship and design innovation. From the mirror-like glass interface which catches the light at the perfect moment, to the surrounding brushed aluminum ring, Beoplay EX creates a statement for the wearer whether they opt for the slick Black Anthracite, opulent Gold Tone, or striking Anthracite Oxygen finish.

Tuned by the brand’s acoustic engineers with decades of experience, Beoplay EX brings the superior sound that listeners expect from Bang & Olufsen’s legacy of portable and home audio products to the comparatively-miniature package of an in-ear device. Beoplay EX encompasses Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation technology, allowing the wearer to appreciate the depth, detail, and clarity of sound that the artist intended, for a truly immersive audio experience.

Bang & Olufsen’s new shape in earphone design creates space for a 9.2 mm speaker driver in Beoplay EX, the biggest ever used for a true-wireless device by the brand. This results in a significant upgrade in the power of each audio moment, without compromising on comfort. Listening can last all day, as Beoplay EX has up to 20 hours of total playtime including charging in the case, and 6 hours of playtime with ANC turned on.

This combination of unrivalled sound quality and impressive ANC is matched with an upgrade in call quality so that Beoplay EX can be used for taking meetings or personal calls at any moment. Each earphone has three microphones, beamforming technology, and its own voice functionality built-in, to ensure a seamless call experience.
