The Wyze Buds Pro Truly Wireless are wallet-friendly in-ears with active noise cancelling (ANC). They have a very neutral sound profile out of the box, which makes them versatile enough for most audio content, and they have a well-built design. However, their ANC struggles to block out the low rumble of bus or plane engines. Their 4.4-hour continuous battery life is quite short, and you may need to recharge them throughout your day. On the upside, their carrying case holds roughly three additional charges if you need it.
The Wyze Buds Pro are good for neutral sound. They deliver audio very consistently and have a neutral sound profile that's well-suited for a variety of audio content. However, they lack any sound customization features if you want to adjust them to your liking. Their passive soundstage also feels closed-off and as if coming from inside your head.
The Wyze Buds Pro are good for commute and travel. They have a decently comfortable fit and are well-built. Their small and lightweight design makes them easy to take with you on the go. However, while they have ANC, they still struggle to block out the low rumble of bus or plane engines. Their continuous battery life of roughly 4.4 hours may not be enough to get you through long trips without recharging them.
The Wyze Buds Pro are great for sports and fitness. Even though they lack stability fins, these in-ears have a lightweight, breathable, and stable design. They're also well-built and are rated IPX4 for water resistance, though we don't currently test for this. Unfortunately, their continuous battery life isn't very long, and they lack volume and track skipping controls.
The Wyze Buds Pro are alright for office use. They have a breathable, decently comfortable fit and don't leak too much audio at high volumes. Although their ANC struggles to block out bass-range noise, they do a much better job of reducing office chatter around you. However, they only have a continuous playback time of 4.4 hours, so you may need to recharge them throughout your day.
The Wyze Buds Pro aren't recommended for wireless gaming. You can only use them via Bluetooth, meaning they aren't compatible with Xbox or PlayStation consoles. While they can connect to Bluetooth-enabled PCs, their high latency may not be suitable for gaming.
The Wyze Buds Pro are Bluetooth-only headphones, and you can't use them wired.
The Wyze Buds Pro are fair for phone calls. Their integrated mic does a decent job of separating speech from ambient noise, so you should be understandable, even if you're speaking in a moderately noisy environment. However, its recording quality is disappointing, and your voice sounds thin, muffled, and lacking in detail. Even though the headphones have ANC, they also struggle to block out bass-range background noise from car engines.
The Wyze Buds Pro have a simple, non-descript look. They have a glossy finish and ear stem design that seems similar to the Anker SoundCore Life P3 Truly Wireless. They only come in one color variation: black.
These headphones are decently comfortable. They feel light and don't enter your ear very deeply. Using the controls also doesn't push them further into your ears. However, the plastic part of the buds' casing that sits inside your ear could cause fatigue over time.
The Wyze Buds Pro have passable controls. They have a touch-sensitive surface on both buds, and there are voice prompts when pairing, turning the headphones on and off, or cycling between ANC on/transparency mode and ANC off. There are also beeps when activating voice assistant. Unfortunately, they lack volume and track skipping by default. While you can remap these controls using the companion app, you lose the default controls. You can register the following commands using either bud out of the box:
The Wyze Buds Pro have outstanding breathability. They don't trap a lot of heat against your ear, and you shouldn't sweat more than usual, even if you're wearing them during workouts.
The Wyze Buds Pro have a very portable design. They're small, lightweight, and should easily fit in most pockets or bags.
The Wyze Buds Pro have a good carrying case. It's mostly made of matte plastic, and there's a small light in the front of the case to indicate the case and buds' battery life. There's also a small light inside the case to indicate Bluetooth pairing.
The Wyze Buds Pro's build quality is good. They're mostly made of plastic but feel similarly sturdy to the EarFun Air Pro True Wireless. They should survive a couple of accidental drops without taking too much damage. They're also rated IPX4 for water resistance, although we don't currently test for it. Unfortunately, the glossy finish of the buds could be prone to damage.
These headphones have good stability. Although they don't have stability fins, they shouldn't fall out of your ears during casual listening sessions or moderate physical activity.
The Wyze Buds Pro have a neutral sound profile that's well-suited for a variety of audio content. They deliver a touch of extra warmth while vocals and lead instruments are bright. Unfortunately, even though they have a companion app, they lack robust sound customization features to help you adjust their sound. While there's a 'Bass Booster' feature available, it's been reported that this is a typo and that this feature is actually an 'Adaptive EQ'. However, we don't currently test the performance of this feature.
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.
These headphones have excellent frequency response consistency. Once you achieve a good fit and seal, you should get consistent bass and treble delivery each time you use them.
The bass accuracy is fantastic. The range is fairly flat and well-balanced. A dip in the low-bass slightly weakens thump and rumble, while a bump in the mid-bass adds a touch of extra warmth.
The Wyze Buds Pro's mid accuracy is excellent. Most of the range is flat, resulting in clear, accurate, and detailed vocals and lead instruments. However, a dip in the mid-mid can nudge vocals and lead instruments to the back of the mix.
The Wyze Buds Pro's treble accuracy is fantastic. Just like in the bass and mid-ranges, the treble response is very neutral and flat; this ensures that the upper harmonics of vocals and lead instruments are detailed and present. Sibilants like cymbals are also bright but not piercing.
The Wyze Buds Pro's peaks and dips performance is excellent. A dip in the low-bass weakens thump and rumble while a peak in the mid-bass adds warmth. Another dip in the mid-mid nudges vocals and lead instruments to the back of your mix. An uneven low-treble can make the upper harmonics of vocals and lead instruments alternatingly dull and bright. A steep peak in the mid-treble makes sibilants like cymbals piercing.
These headphones have a satisfactory imaging performance. The group delay is below the audibility threshold, which results in a tight bass and transparent treble range. The L/R drivers are also well-matched in amplitude and frequency response, important for the accurate localization of objects like footsteps in the stereo image. However, there's a high mismatch in phase response, and peaks in the bass and mid ranges are audible with real-life content, resulting in inaccuracies in the stereo image. That said, our results are only valid for our unit, and your experience may vary.
The Wyze Buds Pro's passive soundstage performance is terrible, which is to be expected for in-ear headphones. They completely bypass your outer ear, which is one of the key factors in creating a spacious soundstage. As a result, their soundstage seems closed-off and as if coming from inside your head, rather than from speakers placed in the room around you.
The weighted harmonic distortion performance is excellent. All frequencies fall within good levels, resulting in clear and pure audio reproduction.
These are the settings used to test the Wyze Buds Pro. Our results are only valid when used in this configuration.
The Wyze Buds Pro have an alright noise isolation performance. They have an active noise cancelling (ANC) system, which can help cut down some noise around you. They do an okay job of reducing the low rumble of bus and plane engines. However, the ANC isn't as effective as the buds' passive noise isolation capabilities in the mid to treble ranges, and the ANC can let in more ambient noise around you. While they can help block out some ambient chatter, it may not be enough if you're working in a noisy office. They do a much better job of cutting down the high-pitched hum of an AC unit, though.
The Wyze Buds Pro's leakage performance is great. Leakage is mostly concentrated in the treble range, and escaping sound seems thin. If you're listening to audio at high volumes in a moderately noisy environment like an office, people around you shouldn't hear most of it.
The integrated microphone's recording quality is sub-par. Your voice sounds very thin and unnatural, even if you're speaking in a quiet environment.
The microphone's noise handling performance is decent. The mic can separate your voice from moderate ambient noise around you, although your voice may sound a bit more boxy and muddy. If you're taking a call while in a loud environment like a busy street, you should still be understandable.
The Wyze Buds Pro's battery performance is sub-par. They're advertised to last 4.5 hours continuously with the ANC on, and we measured a very similar amount. They also have three additional charges in their carrying case, which is handy when you're on the go. You can use one bud while the other one charges too. That said, battery life can vary depending on usage, and your experience may vary. Although they don't have a power-saving feature, you can turn their auto-pause feature on or off using their companion app. This feature doesn't turn off the headphones when you're not using them, though.
The Wyze app is decent. You can turn the ANC on or off and turn transparency mode on. You can map the single, double, and triple tap commands and call-related controls, choose which voice assistant you want to use (whether it's your phone's voice assistant or Alexa), rename the buds, turn on or off the auto-pause feature, and see the battery level of the buds and case. You can also turn on the 'Bass Booster' feature, but it's been reported that this is a typo and that this feature is an 'Adaptive EQ'. However, we don't currently test this feature.
The Wyze Buds Pro have okay Bluetooth connectivity. Unfortunately, they lack both multi-device and NFC pairing. Their latency is also high on PC and Android devices, and you may notice delays between your audio and visuals. Their latency on iOS devices is somewhat lower, though. That said, some apps and devices compensate for latency, so your experience may vary.
You can't use these truly wireless headphones wired. They come with a USB-C to USB-A cable to charge their carrying case.
The Wyze Buds Pro have full audio and mic compatibility with Bluetooth-enabled PCs. You can't connect them to a PC in any other way, though.
These headphones come with a hard carrying case. It has roughly three additional charges, but it only has a USB-C port for recharging the case. The case also supports wireless charging.
The Wyze Buds Pro come in one color variant: 'Black' and you can see our model's label here. If you come across another variant, let us know in the discussions, and we'll update our review.
