EarFun asserts that its latest TWS earbuds are the world's first audio products of their type with a "highly efficient" LE-Audio Bluetooth architecture. An up-to-date Qualcomm chip that confers aptX Adaptive and QuietSmart 2.0 Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation on the Air Pro 3s, which also support one of the latest audio codecs in order to aim for pronounced bass.

EarFun takes an unusual amount of stock in the Qualcomm branded features of the Air Pro 3's QCC 3071 chipset in underpinning the best attributes of the new TWS earbuds. For example, they are among the relative few on the market that list aptX Adaptive as a unique selling point.

In fairness, it may boost audio quality while keeping lag under control on the Air Pro 3s. EarFun also backs them to keep voice calls clear thanks to Qualcomm cVc 8.0 Echo Canceling and Noise Suppression technology as much as their 6-mic system.

On that note, the Air Pro 3s are also rated for QuietSmart 2.0 Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation, even if it cuts their estimated 45-hour total battery life between case charges to 36 hours.

The TWS earbuds also have their own "completely customizable" app and "industry-first" LE Audio as well as Bluetooth 5.3 and the new LC3 audio codec, a combination apparently not seen elsewhere on the market.

It is out there now, as the EarFun Air Pro 3s are now available to order in their single "metallic" finish from or Amazon for US$79.99.
