EarFun Free Wireless Earbuds 2020 Detailed Review.
EarFun Free Wireless Earbuds: EarFun is a relatively new earbud manufacturer, and they’ve quickly made a splash with some of their early offerings. On May 9th, 2019, they launched an Indiegogo campaign to create their Free Wireless Earbuds, and the campaign hit 145 percent of its fundraising goal in the first 24 hours.
There are a lot of crowdfunding campaigns for wireless headphones, and it’s sometimes hard to pick which ones are worthwhile. We’d say that EarFun’s previous customers have spoken loud and clear.
The EarFun Free Wireless Earbuds are built to the latest Bluetooth 5.0 specs, which gives you fast, easy pairing and seamless transmission of quality sound. At first glance, they don’t look any different than many wireless buds on the market.
Design & Features
From the moment we opened the EarFun Free Wireless Earbuds, we were impressed with the quality of the packaging. The box is very sturdy and did not get crushed in shipping, and the paperwork and instruction manual were printed on the sturdy stock.
The two spare pairs of ear tips are also mounted on a plastic strip instead of a small bag, which makes them harder to lose. None of this has anything to do with the earbuds themselves, but it reassured us that EarFun does not skimp on quality.
These earbuds are easy to pair. Simply turn off the right earbud, then hold the button down for three seconds. This will sync it with any electronic device you desire, and the left earbud will sync automatically. On the downside, these buds don’t operate independently. On the other hand, you don’t have to mess around with pairing two separate earbuds.
Accessories and Battery
In terms of battery life, Earfun Free Wireless Earbuds are a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand, they offer 6 hours of battery life when carried on their own. That’s enough for casual use, but not enough to last for more than an afternoon without recharging.
That said, the charging case offers an additional 24 hours of battery life, along with wireless charging. If you’re within 3 feet of the case and the case is plugged in, your battery level will recharge.
When it’s time to recharge, they gain juice quickly. You can put a dead pair of buds on the charger and have them at full volume in 90 minutes. That said, be careful about trusting the LED battery indicators on the case.
The last light represents far less than a quarter of the charge, just a few minutes’ worths. Long story short, when you’re down to two lights, plan on charging your charge case in the near future.
Finally, we come to sound quality, the true test of any sound system. The EarFun Free provides good sound quality for the price, which is especially impressive considering that it only supports the outdated SBC codec. Even with this relatively old codec, sound quality is smooth and consistent, without any weird defects that can sometimes creep in when you’re using an older codec.
The bass response is heavy and punchy, but not exactly top-tier. At the end of the day, 90 percent of earbuds have some limitations on bass output, and these are no exception. That said, the bass leaves plenty of room in the mix for the treble. Even if you have the bass cranked all the way up, the highs will be more than clear enough.
Ultimately, these earbuds are a great choice for classical music, or for any music where vocals are front and center. If you’re looking for a ton of bass response for dance music, though, you’re barking up the wrong tree.
That said, the overall quality is excellent, with a solid balance that delivers reasonable performance across the spectrum. Volume adjustment is also near-perfect, and you’ll have plenty of headspaces available.
We never even had to turn the EarFun Free any higher than three-quarters to drown out background noise. That’s not bad for a mid-priced pair of earbuds.
The Final Verdict
So how good are these earbuds? As with many audio products, much of this depends on your personal preferences. If you’re looking for booming bass, you may want to invest in a quality pair of over-the-ear headphones. But if you’re looking for reasonable earbud quality, easy portability, and clear vocals and highs, it’s hard to argue against EarFun Free Wireless Earbuds. All in all, they’re a great value for the price.
