The Review on Anker Soundcore Life P3 2021
Pros Strong bass depth match with clear highs Surprisingly strong noise cancellation for the price Adjustable ANC and EQ levels Cons Sound signature is not for those looking for accuracy
With high-end active noise cancellation (ANC) easily reaching over $300, “affordable” meant the $150 to $200 range — until now. The $79.99 Anker Soundcore Life P3 earphones cut the floor dramatically, offering an attractive price point for a pair of true wireless earphones, whether they have noise cancellation or not. Sure, the ANC can’t compete with the $280 Bose QuietComfort earbuds, but it’s shockingly good for the price. The sound quality is also fantastic, and those two features earn the Life P3, our Editors’ Choice award for affordable noise-cancelling earphones. Simple, colorful stems
The steel-style earbuds of the P3 are available in black, dark blue, light blue, red or white. The in-ear fit is fairly secure, although there’s plenty of room for the stems to hang at different angles, which can create variable audio performance; for me the ideal sound came from the stems pointing slightly forward. Five pairs of silicone ear tips in different sizes are included to achieve an ideal fit.
Internally, 11mm dynamic drivers deliver a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. The earphones are compatible with Bluetooth 5.0 and support AAC and SBC codecs, but not AptX.
The clamshell charging case has three LEDs under the lid on the front and can charge wirelessly on Qi-enabled chargers, a rarity feature in this price range. On the back of the case is a USB-C port for the included USB-C to USB-A charging cable. A Bluetooth pairing button is on the inside of the case.
The Soundcore app for Android and iOS works with Anker’s various wireless audio products and is quite useful. It offers adjustable eight-band EQ with various presets, along with switches for a low-latency gaming mode. You can also adjust various settings for Ambient Mode (which allows you to hear your surroundings while the earphones are still in your ears) and ANC (including Indoor, Outdoor and Transport modes that target different frequencies of ambient sound). In addition, the app also provides firmware updates.
Anker estimates the Soundcore Life P3’s battery life is about seven hours with ANC off, or six hours with it on, while the case lasts 35 hours (ANC off) or 30 hours (ANC on). Your results will also vary with your volume levels. Anker Soundcore Life P3 Lineup Soundcore Life P3 Noise Reduction and Sound Quality
When the $249 AirPods Pro were released in late 2019, they were a huge leap forward for true wireless noise cancellation, but things have steadily progressed since then, and Anker’s $80 earphones definitely compete in ANC prowess. The P3’s ANC is actually more effective at calling back low-frequency rumbles than the AirPods, and just as effective at calling back higher frequencies. When it comes to the absolute best ANC, the $280 Bose QuietComfort earbuds and Sony WF-1000XM4 outperform them all, but the fact is Anker’s performance is shockingly good for the price.
Transport generally seems to be the most effective ANC mode, calling back deep low frequencies like you would hear on an airplane or train quite effectively. However, it almost seems to exaggerate the highs in scenarios with less deep lows and more mids and highs, such as a loud restaurant. Your favorite ANC mode will probably end up a matter of taste.

For audio performance, on tracks with intense sub-bass content, such as The Knife’s “Silent Shout,” the earphones deliver powerful low-frequency depth. They don’t distort at the top end, unwise volume levels, and still deliver a serious thump at moderate volumes. The lows are nicely matched by the highs, which are also sculpted.
Bill Callahan’s “Drover”, a track with much less bass in the mix, gives us a better idea of the overall sound signature of the Soundcore Life P3. The drums on this track have a full, round depth and Callahan’s baritone vocals get some extra richness. The highs and highs are also boosted and sculpted to a remarkable degree, creating a not-quite-accurate sound signature that is nonetheless balanced and appealing. The app’s EQ allows for plenty of adjustments, so the thumping bass can be turned down to much more reasonable levels.
On Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “No Church in the Wild,” the kick drum loop gains enough high-mid presence for its attack to maintain its punchiness, but we noticed more of the added bass depth applied to the loop. The vinyl crackling and hissing in the background takes a step forward in the mix, while the vocals are delivered clean and clear, but with some added hiss. The star of the show is the sub bass, with rumbles you can almost feel.
Unsurprisingly, orchestral numbers like the opening scene of John Adams’ The Gospel Against the Other Mary sound a little bass-heavy here. Not a big deal though, as the higher register instruments are still crisp and clear enough to hold up.
The microphone offers solid intelligibility. Using the Voice Memos app on an iPhone, we were able to understand every word we recorded, despite the typical Bluetooth distortion. The microphone signal is relatively strong and callers should have no problems understanding you if there is good reception. Unmatched performance for the price
Earlier this year, we were impressed with another pair of Anker earphones, the $130 Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro. We still give that pair a slight edge over this one in terms of noise cancellation, but we’re amazed at how effective the Soundcore Life P3 earphones are at blocking out deep low-frequency rumble for $50 less. Sure, the $280 Bose QuietComfort earbuds and Sony WH-1000MX4 are still the best noise-cancelling true wireless models on the market, but Anker proves that you can get good ANC and powerful bass depth for $200 less, and that’s enough to our Editors’ Choice award.
