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.
  • The earbuds work well with Google Assistant and execute voice commands accurately.
  • Siri’s performance is pretty much the same as Google Assistant, but it’s not as fast and sometimes misses out on voice commands.

Battery Life

  • 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.


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 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, which can be distracting.
