EarFun Wave Pro Review

We’ve reviewed a few different Bluetooth products from EarFun, and they’ve brought consistent value for inexpensive earbuds. For their latest product, EarFun has developed a new pair of over-ear headphones that is just as inexpensive as their true wireless selection. The Wave Pro only costs eighty dollars, but it looks to pack in a lot of quality features for the price, so let’s dive into it.

Look & Feel

The Wave Pro has a relatively clean look that feels standard for an inexpensive pair of Bluetooth headphones. There’s nothing flashy about its design but doesn’t look bland either. I quite like the silver rim around the ear cups, as it distracts from the plasticity build. It’s a professional look, with a fitting level of comfort to accompany it.

Design & Functionality

Inside the Wave Pro is a 40mm dynamic driver with a diamond-like carbon(DLC) diaphragm. It also uses a series of 5 microphones that are supported by an AI algorithm for enhanced noise-canceling and call clarity. There are a few different levels of environmental sound features and they’re all effective. You have comfort ANC, strong ANC, and wind noise canceling for different levels of isolation depending on your setting. The noise-canceling used here is varied and gets the job done, removing distractions and other obstructive sounds from your environment. These noise-canceling options can be cycled through in the EarFun Audio companion app, which contains features like EQ and customizable controls.


The Wave Pro pairs quickly, and feature high stability throughout hours of listening. Android users will be able to enjoy higher-quality audio streams through LDAC, making the Wave Pro one of the most inexpensive options to feature this CODEC. It’s also one of the cheapest options to have a multipoint connection.

Battery Life

EarFun is looking to make a statement with its battery life. For only eighty dollars, the Wave Pro is advertising an 80-hour battery life with fast charging. This would give the Wave Pro the largest battery life on the market, outdoing the Sennheiser Momentum 4 and other higher-end Bluetooth headphones.

EarFun Wave Pro side


Even without any special properties like spatial audio, the Wave Pro offers a good soundstage for the price. Eighty-dollar wireless headphones might not give you the most spacious imaging or dimensional layering, but the width is quite surprising. It’s rather organized, and the mix is easy to comprehend. Nothing gets pressed up together too much, as the Wave Pro avoids feeling squished together. The sound elements also come forward a bit and show off some nice headspace with its limited ability. You’ll never hear anything appear too flat on the surface of the stereo image. Sounds can pop in around you with semi-accuracy, which not a lot of Bluetooth headphones can do for less than a hundred bucks.

Low End

These aren’t the bassist headphones, but the lows keep a nice even presence that I appreciate. A lot of headphones in this price range tend to shove a ton of bass frequencies toward the front of the sound signature to make up for its lack of balance and detail in exchange for fun. Even if the Wave Pro doesn’t feature the most detailed bass, it supplies a good foundation for most performances. With EQ, the bass can establish more shape and texture without ever coming across like it’s dominating the frequency response. I was very surprised by how clear some bass guitar rhythms appeared when listening to the Wave Pro. While it may lack some impact, the bass still holds its own with impressive clarity.


The Wave Pro minimizes cloudiness for a more comprehensible midrange. Nothing pops without EQ, but the instruments mostly have good clarity. Vocals are the most transparent, and the Wave Pro does a good job of giving them definition. There’s still a limited amount of room in the mids, but the individual notes come through with more body than you might be expecting. Everything comes across naturally the more you sit with it, making it easy to forget you’re listening to eighty-dollar wireless headphones.


Like the bass, the highs have a very controlled presence without EQ. Some areas of the treble add some good height to the sound signature and extend the soundstage in significant ways. The frequencies come across with a clean timbre that feels distinct, but also a natural part of the mix. There’s a light sparkle, even with the gentlest adjustments in EQ. It never appears too bright and causes no distractions. It’s a smooth response that still offers a fine character.


It’s easy to be impressed by anything an eighty-dollar headphone does competently, but the Wave Pro is the real deal. Not only does it pack in some great features like huge battery life and LDAC compatibility, but the sound is very enjoyable. The Wave Pro would be impressive enough for eighty dollars without its quality sound signature, but it shows how much of a serious competitor EarFun is turning into. The Wave Pro is the easiest headphones to recommend for those looking for an inexpensive wireless headphone, and it even surpasses some more expensive headphones.
