I forgot what great sound was. I have been a user of Apple Airpods Pro for so long I got accustomed to their sound profile.
What if I told you Edifier has a pair of earbuds with active noise cancellation, an ambient sound mode, and Hi-Res audio all for $130?
The Edifier NeoBuds Pro are a great bang for your buck in the earphone market.
In the box you’re getting a set of NeoBuds Pro, a charging case, a USB A to USB C charging cable, a ton of size options for the tips, a pouch to carry everything in, and some manuals. Edifier provides everything you need and more. I can’t see myself ever using the pouch but it is still a nice touch.
Connecting my phone via Bluetooth was pretty easy however as a heavy Apple user I couldn’t help but wish it had a W1 chip for seamless syncing. To get all the settings right you are going to want to download the Edifier Connect app. Here you can go to the sound tunning section. They have a stock Classic and Dynamic set. For anyone who likes their mix bass-heavy, you will love the Dynamic sound setting. They also have a “customized” sound option where you can save different profiles. Once I got my sound settings locked in I went to Tidal for the Hi-Fi sound, pressed play, and I could not help but smile. The low end on the NeoBuds Pro is strong but not overwhelming. That is due to a custom-designed dynamic driver. The highs are crisp too thanks to the Knowles balanced armature driver. The microphones are effective as well. Audio clarity is strong thanks to the six microphones that are all working together. These earphones are packed with some impressive technology.
The Active noise cancellation removes surrounding noise up to 42dBs. The app contains two different levels of preference. There is high mode and comfortable. Honestly, I don’t know why there are two different modes. If I turn on noise cancellation I do not want to hear any outside noise. Now to combat that they have an Ambient noise mode. within the app, you can change how much ambient noise you want to come through. I found that turning it to the max was the best. The earphones have tap controls for the left and right sides. You can use a double-tap or a triple-tap on either earbud. You can customize what you want the taps to do in the app. There is a total of four options two for each earphone. I chose to have the left earphone to switch between noise cancelation and ambient and the right to play and pause. Edifier added another mode I was shocked to see, Game mode. For any mobile gamers out there you know you need to be quick in competitive play. This mode lowers the latency to 80ms. These are buds are a great combo with RIOTPWRs controller to have the best Call of Duty Mobile experience.
For $130 I don’t think you can find a better-sounding feature-rich pair of earphones. They are comfortable over long-term use. The sound profile is solid. The noise cancelation and ambient modes help me listen how I want to. I am very impressed and look forward to telling friends and family about the Edifier NeoBuds Pro.
