Audio Quality

Let’s talk about the most important part, the sound quality. The Soundpeats Air 3 comes with a massive 14.2mm driver that enables a wide sound field and precise details to let you enjoy immense music. The bass of these buds is quite rumbling, but it doesn’t distort the quality, so you can feel every bit of what you are listening to. The sound level is pretty loud when you are at maximum volume. So many of you might prefer a 60 to 70 percent volume level if you don’t want to disturb others. Otherwise, the mids and highs are balanced pretty well to give you clarity and presence without sounding extremely intense. Overall, these earbuds ensure some of the best sound quality that you can find in semi-in-ear earbuds.

Design and Material

Coming to the design, the Soundpeats Air 3 comes in a super compact charging case that can easily slide into the pocket. And on the upper side of the charging case, you can clearly see the branding name. The same lightweight and compact design continue with the earbuds. Though the earbuds are made of plastic, the matte finish adds a premium vibe to them. As we mentioned earlier, these earbuds are semi-in-ear earbuds so there are no silicone ear tips, and you will feel much more comfortable when you wear them.


Noise Cancelling Feature

As for the call quality, these earbuds feature a total of four microphones and CVC noise-canceling technology, which is designed to capture your voice accurately and reduce ambient noise. The Air 3 does not completely remove background noises while using these earbuds for phone calls but is still perfect for getting your work done. It is worth mentioning that you can use a single earbud for the phone call so you can keep another one in the charging box if you want. 

User Convenience

To make your user experience even more smooth and convenient, the Air 3 comes with Bluetooth 5.2 and TrueWireless Mirroring technology, which ensures seamless connection and ultra-low power consumption. Having the aptX-Adaptive codec, these earbuds are great for keeping your audio in sync with the content that you are streaming and gives you the best possible audio experience. Another feature you are getting with this device is In-Ear Detection, which means the music will automatically pause when you remove one of the earbuds from your ear. In this way, you can have a conversation pretty easily without pulling out your phone from your pocket. So if you are done with the conversation and once you put the earbuds back in your ear, the music will automatically resume, which is a pretty convenient feature to have. 

Additional Features

For gamers, the Air 3 comes with Game Mode, which can cut down on the latency to 60ms, so you can play your favorite game without having any kind of sound delay. Besides, the touch sensor works perfectly, and you can have full control over the player effortlessly. And then, if you are an activity lover, the Air 3 has an IPX5 water rating to hold up just fine by resisting water splash or sweat. But remember, you can not completely submerge these earbuds underwater.

In terms of battery life, you can get up to 5 hours of playtime from a single charge, and it can be extended up to 17.5 hours with the compact and lightweight charging case. On the front of the charging case, you will have a pairing or reset button along with a LED indicator to let you know about the remaining battery. Then underneath, you can find your USB type-c charging port. 

Final Verdict

All in all, for a respectful price, the Soundpeats Air 3 can be an excellent choice. It delivers solid sound quality and bass in a compact form factor. So that was all about the Soundpeats Air 3.
