Appearance Design & Accessories
The SoundPEATS Mini Pro charging case adopts a delicate and compact oval design, which is delicate and soft to the touch without greasy feeling, and is also relatively portable. The LED indicator and the Type-C charging interface are located on the front and back of the charging case, respectively. The power status can be judged by the indicator light, 10%-50% is green, 49%-10% is yellow, and below 10% is red.
The SoundPEATS Mini Pro has an insulating film attached to the earbuds’ charging contacts from the factory. After tearing it off, put it back into the charging case and it can be used normally. The entire area on the back of the earbud cavity is a touch area, and the surface is a slightly deformed brand LOGO pattern.
The indicator lights on the earbud are designed to the back edge of the cavity. The indicator light is not large and faces directly downward when worn normally, so it will not be too conspicuous even for night use. The L/R logo is located at the position of the charging contact, but the text is not very obvious, and you need to look carefully to distinguish it.
The difference in cavity design between the left and right earbuds of SoundPEATS Mini Pro is not very obvious, and it is difficult to distinguish them at least at a glance. If two earbuds are mixed together, it is a little difficult to quickly and accurately distinguish the left and right earbuds. Since the SoundPEATS Mini Pro adopts an inclined conduit design, it is only necessary to place the LOGO on the back of the two earbud cavities correctly, and then the left and right earbuds can be easily distinguished.
SoundPEATS Mini Pro uses a 10mm biological diaphragm drive unit. In order to reduce the impact of the large-sized unit on the volume of the earbud cavity, this bean-shaped earbuds adopts a layered design. This not only improves the feel of the earbuds when removing them, but also makes the earbuds more comfortable and firm to wear. After actual measurement, it will not fall off easily even if it is worn when skipping rope or running.
The only regret is that the Hall switch is not used, and the earbud needs to be taken out to connect to the bluetooth of the mobile phone.
In addition to earbuds and charging case, it also includes three pairs of silicone eartips of different sizes and a Type-C charging cable. Since the catheter of SOUNDPEATS Mini Pro is oval, conventional eartips cannot be applied on it, so it is recommended to keep the matching eartips well.
Hybrid ANC Noise Cancelling
SoundPEATS Mini Pro uses a hybrid active noise cancelling technology. Under the blessing of Qualcomm 3040 noise cancelling chip, its noise cancelling depth can reach 35dB. Not only can it effectively reduce external noise in a noisy environment, but also it will not cause dizziness due to the high noise cancelling depth, and the experience is very comfortable.
SoundPEATS Mini Pro provides 3 modes: normal, noise cancelling and transparency, which can cope with different usage scenarios. In noise cancelling mode, I can enjoy music clearly even on buses and subways without being disturbed by too much outside noise. When the transparent mode is turned on, it is very convenient to communicate with colleagues without taking off the earbud during daily work.
Its mode switching is also very simple, just need to long press the left earbud for about 1.5 seconds to switch in sequence. In addition, SoundPEATS Mini Pro also has Qualcomm cVc 8.0 call noise cancelling capability to eliminate ambient background sound and present a high-definition call experience.
Game Latency & Battery Life
Thanks to the Bluetooth 5.2 technology of the Qualcomm 3040 noise cancelling chip, the SoundPEATS Mini Pro has a stable connection and fast transmission. After turning on the game mode, the earbuds latency can be as low as 60ms. The overall latency is as low as 80ms, which effectively reduces the sound delay when playing games, which is quite suitable for users who like to play mobile games.
In terms of battery life, the single battery life is up to 7 hours, and the charging case can also charge the earbuds fully 2 times, and the overall battery life can reach 21 hours.
SOUNDPEATS APP & Control
SoundPEATS Mini Pro can also turn on the adaptive EQ function in the APP. By detecting the hearing condition of the user, an exclusive EQ can be customized for the user, so that everyone can obtain a listening experience that is more suitable for them. As long as the test is carried out strictly according to your real hearing situation, the final EQ curve effect is still very good.
In addition, there are many other EQs in the APP to choose from. Users can also customize the equalizer, and can easily choose among normal mode, ANC mode, transparency mode and game mode. The firmware of the earbuds can also be updated through the APP.

Comfort & Sound Quality
SoundPEATS Mini Pro has a total of three pairs of eartips, which can basically adapt to various sizes of ear canals. During this period of experience, I wear it for about an hour every day during fitness, and there is no strong sense of pressure in the ear canal. On the whole, it is quite comfortable, and the earbuds did not fall off due to the large movement swing during the fitness.
SoundPEATS Mini Pro uses 10mm bio-diaphragm dynamic driver and Qualcomm 3040 Bluetooth 5.2 chip, and supports three audio codec modes: SBC, AAC and aptX Adaptive. aptX Adaptive has the advantages of high sound quality and low latency, and can automatically adjust the bit rate of audio transmission according to different usage scenarios. Although the sound quality is slightly inferior to the LDAC lossless codec technology, the practicality is better.
I auditioned songs such as “渡口” and “Hotel California”, and found the tri-band of the SoundPEATS Mini Pro to be well balanced. I especially like the roundness and fullness of the vocal part, and the high frequency transparency. The drums in the low-frequency part are deep, and the extension has enough depth. In particular, its sound field positioning is very clear, and you can distinguish the positions of various instruments when enjoying the Live version of the music. Great for listening to popular songs.
