Two drivers working together
According to Edifier, the NeoBuds Pro will deliver the audio quality “traditionally found in speakers and over-ear headphones”, thanks to a dynamic and armature driver working together inside the buds.
For audiophiles, LHDC and AAC codec support means the earbuds come with a Hi-Res certification, with the ability to transmit 96kHz / 24Bit audio over Bluetooth. There’s also a low latency gaming mode, which should prevent any lag when you’re using the buds to play games.
Edifier says that the NeoBuds Pro outperform their predecessors, the TWS NB2, in terms of active noise cancellation, thanks to a “smarter and more upgraded algorithm”. Meanwhile, three internal microphones are designed to make your calls sound clear, allowing for noise cancellation to be applied to your voice.
In terms of design, they look fairly similar to the Edifier TWS NB2 Pro, with angular stems and a slick charging case. Battery life comes in at five hours from the buds themselves and 15 from the charging case with ANC on – this rises to six hours in the buds and 18 in the case with this feature switched off.
Hopefully the new earbuds are better than the last Edifier buds we tested. While we felt the Edifier TWS1 were good value for money, we weren’t convinced by their audio performance or their limited touch controls.
