Not too long ago I was able to test Earfun’s UBOOM speaker, which is still hands-down one of the best portable speakers I’ve used. When they reached out to have their new EarFun Air in-ear headphones reviewed, I was happy to give them a test. Overall, I’m impressed with their sound and fit and mostly impressed with their ability to block out noise around me, considering they’re in-ear headphones. Let’s go over everything you need to know about these if you’re considering getting them for yourself.
Opening the EarFun Air headphones and sound quality
Right out of the box, you’ll want to be sure to make sure they’re fully charged. They use a USB-C quick charge and it didn’t take long to fully charge (granted, I don’t know how fully charged they were before they got here).
When it comes to in-ear headphones, sound quality is usually one of the big sacrifices when you compare it to over-the-ear headphones. Thankfully, there wasn’t as much as a sacrifice in these compared to some other in-ear headphones I’ve used. Music still sounds sharp and incredible. There’s a lot more range in these than others I’ve tried. There’s a slight sacrifice in bass, but that’s usually to be expected with headphones this size.
These earbuds have dual 6mm composite drivers to create the good sound quality they have. Although these earbuds aren’t advertised as noise-canceling, they fit so well in ear that they blocked out a ton of noise around me.
Bluetooth, battery, and more
These headphones have Bluetooth 5.0. They maintained a steady connection, no matter what I was doing or where I moved. In total, you get 35 hours of play time when you include the fact that your case will charge them when needed on the go. If you plug one back into the case, the other one keeps working which is a great option for when you only want to use one. Ten minutes of charging will give you two hours of use, which is ideal if you’re traveling and need them right away.
When I tested out calls, the microphone worked well. On my end, calls sounded a little hard to hear. I wouldn’t use these ideally for calls, but they’ll work if they’re your only option.
One of the things that drives me crazy with touch earbuds is the fact that if you touch them to adjust and make them fit better in your ear, they’ll pause your music. One small feature on these headphones that really makes them stand out to me is that you have to tap more than twice to get a command you want. One touch won’t change anything and that gives these HUGE points because that’s one of my top complaints for other ones. With that being said, be ready to have to tap them moderately hard for them to pick up your command. A light tap won’t do, which can be slightly annoying for your ears to have to tap so hard. When I wanted to pause, these headphones were about only half and half for picking that up.
These earbuds also pause when you take one out of your ear. They’re supposed to play again when you put them back in, which was pretty hit-or-miss, too. Thankfully, the sound control worked perfectly, which is the most important function of all.
