Wireless earbuds are a coveted audio technology, with countless companies battling for market share. Yet, only a handful have truly mastered the space:
One of the companies stepping up is Anker, but where does the SoundCore Life P3 Truly Wireless earbuds rank? Let’s find out!
Anker SoundCore Life P3
$65+ from amazon
Top-selling and feature-rich earbuds, that include noise-canceling technology, 6 mics, and much more. All of this comes with a thumping sound that punches well above its price point. Plus, go wild with a wide selection of colors. Nerdable recommended.
Great Style And Fit
The P3’s earbuds are available in 5 different colors, including black, dark blue, light blue, red, and white. The in-ear fit is fairly secure, though there’s enough leeway for the stems to hang at different angles.
Like most other wireless earbuds, you can wear the P3s with stems pointing either straight forward or angling inward slightly. The package includes 3 additional pairs of silicone ear tips in various sizes to help achieve an ideal fit:
And even though these earbuds don’t include stability fins, they should stay in your ears during most physical workouts.
Controls And Digital Assistant
The Life P3’s control scheme uses digital assistance and tap/hold gestures to help you navigate through different features. Similarly, it works well with Google Assistant and executes voice commands accurately.
On the downside, the Siri performance is pretty much the same as Google Assistant, but it’s not as fast and sometimes misses out on voice commands.
Running low on charge? Just drop the earbuds back into the case for a boost. The case can recharge the earbuds twice, fully. This means you can get up to 14 hours of playtime off of one case charge.

Sound: The sound is fantastic for the price and there is robust synchronization between audio and video content on both Android and iPhone devices.
The earbuds even include a gaming mode, which will boost the playback of sound effects within games. For example, Life P3 users can easily listen to footsteps in-game thanks to this functionality.
Calls: Additionally, to take a call with the SoundCore Life P3 earbuds, simply press on the multi-function button to answer and hold it down to hang up. You’ll also use this button to rewind and skip tracks.
Another thing, the 6 microphone array allows you to speak clearly without yelling or having an echo effect happening. This will let your voice resonate naturally in the foreground over any background noise.
On top of that, you’ll be able to hear those you’re speaking with clearly as well, although strong wind can still cause a bit of a problem when outside.
On the downside, you can’t toggle between Ambient and Noise-Cancellation modes during a call. This means the noise-canceling feature amplifies your own voice instead of your conversation partner’s voice.
