The EarFun Air Pro 2 True Wireless are the next generation of the EarFun Air Pro True Wireless. Compared to their predecessor, their touch-sensitive controls offer more functionality, and their carrying case holds more extra charges. They maintain a fairly neutral sound profile with a touch of extra thump, body, and boom suitable for lots of audio content. However, even though they have active noise cancelling (ANC) and they can block out a decent amount of ambient noise around you, their performance in this regard falls short of that of the previous gen. They also lack a companion app and sound customization features to help you adjust their sound to your liking.

Our Verdict

7.7 Neutral Sound

The EarFun Air Pro 2 are good for neutral sound. They have a fairly neutral sound profile with a touch of extra bass to add slight thump, rumble, and boom to your tracks. The mid-range is pretty flat, although it's a bit underemphasized, which can nudge vocals and lead instruments to the back of your mixes. However, they don't have an EQ to help adjust their sound to your liking. They also have a bad passive soundstage that doesn't seem very immersive, although that's to be expected from in-ear headphones.

Pros
  • Decently comfortable and stable fit.
  • Very consistent audio delivery.
Cons
  • Bad passive soundstage.
7.7 Commute/Travel

The EarFun Air Pro 2 are good for commute and travel. They have a decently comfortable, lightweight fit and can easily fit into most pockets or bags without too much issue. They also feel well-built and don't leak too much audio at high volumes. They have a continuous battery life of under six hours too, which should be enough to get you through your daily commute. However, even though they have active noise cancelling, they struggle to block out the low rumble of bus and plane engines.

Pros
  • Decently comfortable and stable fit.
  • Satisfactory noise isolation performance.
  • Good touch-sensitive controls.
Cons
  • No EQ.
8.2 Sports/Fitness

The EarFun Air Pro 2 are great for sports and fitness. Thanks to their truly wireless design, they're small, lightweight, and can easily fit into most pockets or bags when you're on the go. They also have a decently comfortable and stable fit, although they could pop out of your ears if you're talking. That said, they're well-built and are certified IPX5 for protection against water contact such as rain.

Pros
  • Decently comfortable and stable fit.
  • Good touch-sensitive controls.
Cons
  • No EQ.
7.1 Office

The EarFun Air Pro 2 are decent for office use. They're decently comfortable, lightweight, and well-built. They can also block out office chatter around you, and although they leak a small amount of audio at high volumes, that shouldn't disturb others around you too much. However, their under six hours of continuous battery life may mean that you need to charge them throughout your workday, and they don't support multi-device pairing.

Pros
  • Decently comfortable and stable fit.
  • Satisfactory noise isolation performance.
Cons
  • No multi-device pairing.
5.6 Wireless Gaming

The EarFun Air Pro 2 are compatible with Bluetooth-enabled PCs. However, their latency is likely too high to be suitable for gaming.

5.5 Wired Gaming

The EarFun Air Pro 2 are Bluetooth-only headphones, and you can't use them wired.

6.8 Phone Calls

The EarFun Air Pro 2 are fair for phone calls. These in-ears have an integrated mic, and when your voice is recorded, you sound natural, although lacking in body and detail. However, the mic has some troubles separating your voice from ambient noise around you, so you may be drowned out if you're taking a call from a busy street. On the upside, these buds have an ANC system that can block out a decent amount of ambient noise so that you can better hear your call.

Pros
  • Satisfactory noise isolation performance.
  • Alright overall mic performance.
Cons
  • No EQ.
  • No multi-device pairing.
  • 7.7 Neutral Sound
  • 7.7 Commute/Travel

Test Results

Design
Style

The EarFun Air Pro 2 are in-ear headphones with a more similar look to the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro Truly Wireless than the EarFun Air Pro True Wireless since they have a smooth, streamlined design, rather than angular stems. They have a glossy finish on their touch-sensitive surface and stems. They only come in one color variant: Black.

The EarFun Air Pro 2 have a decently comfortable fit. They're lightweight and don't enter your ear very deeply. It also doesn't hurt your ear to register commands using their touch-sensitive controls. However, they could pop out of your ears while you're talking, which is a little annoying.

Additional Controls Voice Assistant

The EarFun Air Pro 2 have good controls. They have a touch-sensitive surface on each earbud that's easier to locate than the EarFun Air Pro True Wireless. Unlike the previous generation, they also have volume controls, and you can even skip tracks backward in addition to forward. There are voice prompts when you turn the headphones on and off as well as when pairing them. There are also voice prompts when switching between ANC on, off, and transparency mode, while beeps let you know when you've activated voice assistant. However, some users may find the controls a bit unintuitive right off the bat.

On the left earbud:

  • One tap: Lowers volume.
  • Triple tap: Skips the track backward.
  • Tap and hold for two seconds: Cycles between ANC, ambient sound, which allows you to hear your surroundings without pausing your audio, and ANC off.

On the right earbud:

  • One tap: Raises volume.
  • Triple tap: Skips the track forward.
  • Tap and hold for two seconds: Activates voice assistant.

On either earbud:

  • Double tap: Plays or pauses audio. Also answers a call.
  • Triple tap: Allows you to answer and transfer to a new call while you're already on a call. You can also use this command to switch back to the previous call.

Breathability

The EarFun Air Pro 2 are very breathable, which is to be expected for in-ear headphones. They don't trap much heat against your ear, and you shouldn't sweat more than usual, even if you're wearing them during more strenuous workouts.

The carrying case is decent. It's made of hard plastic but feels a bit cheap, and the lid is really thin and wobbly. There's a small indicator light on the front of the case to let you know the battery life.

Design
Build Quality

The EarFun Air Pro 2's build quality is good. They're mostly made of plastic and feel like they should survive a couple of accidental drops without taking too much damage. They're also certified IPX5 for protection against water exposure such as rain. However, the carrying case feels a bit cheap, and its lid is a bit flimsy.

7.0
Design
Stability

The EarFun Air Pro 2 have decent stability. They should stay in your ears during more casual listening sessions, but they may pop out of your ears when you're talking. They also lack stability fins to help improve their fit when you're moving.

The EarFun Air Pro 2 have a fairly neutral sound profile. They have a slight bump of bass that adds extra thump, rumble, and boom to your mixes. However, it shouldn't overwhelm vocals and lead instruments too much. On the downside, they lack an EQ or presets, so you can't adjust their sound to your liking.

Note: There's a slight discrepancy between the left and right driver in the raw frequency response graphs due to how the files were processed. However, all other graphs are correct, and this difference shouldn't be audible to most users.

The EarFun Air Pro 2's peaks and dips performance is excellent. Most of the response is fairly flat, although a dip in the mid to high-mid slightly nudges vocals and lead instruments to the back of the mix and weakens them. A couple of minor peaks in the low-treble can help keep these sounds present and detailed in your mixes though while another peak in the mid-treble adds brightness to sibilants like S and T sounds.

The EarFun Air Pro 2's imaging performance is fantastic. The group delay falls below the audibility threshold, resulting in tight bass and transparent treble reproduction. Our unit's L/R drivers are also extremely well-matched in frequency, amplitude, and phase response, which is important for the localization of objects in the stereo image. Note that these results are only valid for our unit, and yours may perform differently.

The EarFun Air Pro 2 have a bad passive soundstage, which is to be expected from in-ear headphones. By design, they completely bypass your outer ear, which needs to be activated by sound resonances to create a more out-of-head and speaker-like soundstage. As a result, their soundstage doesn't seem very immersive, open, or spacious.

The EarFun Air Pro 2 have a great weighted harmonic distortion performance. There's a small peak between the high-mid to low-treble in the right driver at high volumes. However, this can be very hard to hear with real-life content. Most other frequencies fall within good levels, resulting in fairly clear and pure audio reproduction.

The EarFun Air Pro 2's noise isolation performance is satisfactory. Like the EarFun Air Pro True Wireless, they have an active noise cancelling (ANC) system, but it doesn't perform as well as that of their predecessor. They can cut down a satisfactory amount of bass-range noise like the low rumble of bus and plane engines. They can also block out mid-range noise like office chatter, although they do a better job of reducing the high-pitched hum of AC units.

The EarFun Air Pro 2 have a decent battery performance. They're advertised to last six hours continuously with their ANC on, and we measured a similar amount. Their carrying case also holds roughly four additional charges, and you can use one bud while the other is charging. The headphones turn off after 10 minutes of inactivity, and the manufacturer claims that you can get two hours of playtime with only ten minutes of charging. However, battery life can vary depending on usage, so your real-life experience may differ.

Compared To Other Headphones

The EarFun Air Pro 2 are the next generation of the EarFun Air Pro True Wireless, although there hasn't been much improvement beyond their new look and more functional touch-sensitive design. The second-gen maintain a neutral sound profile with a touch of extra bass that's well-suited for most audio content. They come with more additional charges in their carrying case, although their 5.8-hour continuous battery life falls short of their predecessor's nine hours. While they have an ANC system and can block out a decent amount of ambient sound, competitors such as the Anker SoundCore Life P3 Truly Wireless offer a better noise isolation performance, especially when blocking out bass-range noise like bus engines.
