At first glance, it’s easy to overlook a simple pair of in-ear headphones like the EarFun True Wireless BT 5 Earbuds. They don’t look cheap, but they don’t have the otherworldly aura of some of the high-end earbud brands that come with triple-figure price tags either.
However, a pair of 2020 awards from CES Innovation and iF Design should be enough to get your attention. Then, there have been reviews like this one from What HiFi that explicitly calls out their outlying status.
“Until now, we’ve never awarded five stars to a set of true wireless headphones at this budget level,” the site states. “The EarFun Air buds could just be the ideal proposition.”
With credentials like those, the Air should quickly join your list of earbud options, especially at their budget price of just $54.99.
Any headphones are primarily judged by their sound — and the Air clears that first hurdle easily. Backed by PEEK PU high fidelity custom-built composite cellulose drivers, the Air delivers deep, powerful gut-thumping bass with dynamic treble that faithfully reproduces the music you love.
The Air also score high marks for their innovative design elements as well. While most earbuds include a mic in each bud, each Air bud comes loaded with a pair. Thanks to that quad mic system, these buds employ noise cancellation hat effectively block about 80 percent of background noise. Meanwhile, the mic help elevate your voice above the usual distant tinny quality of many buds, making it three times clearer for your listener on the other end.
And when you look at its list of features, the Air doesn’t read like budget earbuds either. The buds are controlled through a highly responsive single-button touchpad, which lets users change tracks, adjust volume to take calls easily. They also employ in-ear detection to work seamlessly as a pair or with a single bud operating solo. When you take the Air out of your ear, the music automatically pauses, then resumes when you put it back in.
As for battery life, the Air is also putting up strong numbers, producing up to 35 hours of play time with the accompanying carrying case. The earbuds can charge up with a USB-C plugin or even via Qi wireless charging.
Regularly $59, the EarFun Air True Wireless BT 5 Earbuds are available now at a few bucks off the retail price, down to just $54.99 while this offer lasts.
