Review: EarFun Free 2 Wireless Earbuds

EarFun offered me another opportunity to review one of their new products, the EarFun Free 2 Wireless Earbuds. This set is different than the EarFun Air Pro that I reviewed previously as this one doesn’t have a shaft nor noise cancelling, but after a few days of use, I have to admit that I prefer this one over the EarFun Air Pros.

The unit I received is an engineering prototype so a few caveats: A) it doesn’t come with any information about its features, but a few email exchanges with my contact at EarFun quickly resolved that problem. B) no fancy packaging, so I didn’t really take any photos of my unboxing.

Let’s take a quick look at the features:

  • Qualcomm’s latest Bluetooth chip QCC3040 which features very low power consumption
  • Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity
  • Qualcomm aptX audio technology
  • Qualcomm TrueWireless Mirroring technology offers uninterrupted and seamless switching between both earbuds
  • Supports low latency mode within 100ms to improve your video experience
  • High-quality 6mm composite film dynamic speaker which reduces sound distortion and provides powerful bass (although when I measured it, it’s only 4mm…)
  • Touch sensors
  • IPX7 waterproof rating
  • Wireless charging of the case + USB-C charging
  • Up to 7 hours battery life + 30 hours with the case

Review: EarFun Air Pro Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Earbuds

Hi folks,

Today’s a special day – I get to do a product review! 

I don’t normally do these, but I’ve been in the market for a set of wireless headphones ever since the battery life in my Apple AirPods (Gen 1) was severely degraded to the point that I couldn’t even use them for 45 minutes. We’re all working from home now, so I really need something that can last through my meetings. Many people in Sweden swear by the Apple Airpods Gen 2 or Apple Airpods Pro, but I decided to look around the market and try a few different products, especially since I didn’t really want to spend $200+ (2200 kr) for something with a measly 4-5 hours of battery life (less if you’re using the microphone). Now, to be fair, I only considered products that were very close to the profile of the Apple earbuds. I like how they look, how easy it is to store them, the satisfactory “snap” of the case, and their sound profile. (Yes, I like the sound of the Airpods. C’mon, I’m really just using it for music while I’m on the go, some phone calls, and meetings. I’m not in a studio and don’t need studio quality headphones.)
