Soundcore Life P3 in the test: These in-ears deserve a price tip


With the Soundcore Life P3, Anker presents its latest in-ears. They are Significantly cheaper at 80 euros RRP than the upper-class eavesdroppers Liberty Air 2 Pro for 130 euros (here our test). The latter send more brilliance to the ears, especially at higher pitches. They also convey a finer feel with their matt finish and offer an effective extra with the individual auditory canal measurement.

Balanced and strong bass

But the Life P3 really don’t have to hide. With a balanced, bass-strong sound, they calmly master every genre. Five pairs of silicone attachments in different sizes are included for good and comfortable wearing comfort. Their fit can be checked in the highly recommended Soundcore app. Firmware updates are also run via the app. Because Anker not only diligently brings hardware onto the market, but also maintains its software.

The equalizer in the app regulates individual sound preferences. Anker recommends the Soundcore signature sound, with which more bass can be switched on if desired. Alternatively, there are 20 further preset mixes to choose from. If you are still not happy with that, you can save your own sound profile.

In terms of sound codecs, the Life P3 support the higher quality AAC in addition to the standard food SBC.

Sensor surfaces for function control

Practical: the sensor surfaces of the earphones can be programmed in the app. By simply tapping, double tapping and holding down the button for 2 seconds, you can trigger various functions on the left and right, such as stop, next, track jump, volume up / down, fine-tuning the noise suppression and much more. If you have a good memory, you can control the eavesdropper almost independently of the smartphone. As is usual with sensor surfaces, not every command is immediately crowned with success.

Effective noise cancellation

The effective active noise suppression (ANC, Active Noise Canceling) offers real added value. As with the high-end models from Anker, this can be set in several stages. There are three main modes: Noise Suppression, Transparency Mode and Normal.

  • In the “Normal” setting, the ANC modes are switched off.
  • The transparency mode offers two levels: full transparency for ambient noise or with a focus on voices.
  • If you choose noise suppression, there are three sub-levels to choose from: traffic, indoor and outdoor. In the office, for example, we were able to largely block out colleagues who were constantly chatting from the next room even without music.

If you want to relax, you can set soothing nature sounds under the item “Good sleep”. New to Soundcore headphones is the gaming mode, which reduces latency while gaming and highlights voices, shots and steps.

Six microphones with noise isolation take care of the phone quality. They do a solid job: we had conversations of consistently good quality.

The connection to the smartphone is stable via Bluetooth 5.0. Thanks to IPX5, the earphones are protected against water jets and dust.

Long running time

Not to be forgotten: the plugs offer a very good running time of up to seven hours, with breaks in the charging case even up to 35 hours are possible. The latter is kept in the same color as the earplugs and is supplied with the USB-C cable or wirelessly charged with an optional Qi-Pad.

Conclusion: buy recommendation

The Soundcore Life P3 offer for moderate money not only a good and balanced sound, but also a lot of upper-class functions. The multi-level noise suppression does a great job, the operation works directly on the earphones via programmable sensor surfaces. The app also offers a wide range of setting options, and the ANC mode can be switched quickly using a widget on the smartphone.
