Coming this July, the new Edifier Neobuds Pro S promises to deliver 24-bit 96 kHz audio with 45% less latency than other wireless headphones. This is one of the first remarkable products to use Qualcomm Snapdragon Sound codecand in theory should correspond to the quality of the cable headphones.

Edifier is no stranger to high-resolution audio codecs. neither TechRadar notes that he experimented with LDAC and LHDC in original Neobuds Pro. But Snapdragon Sound should offer more stability than other high-resolution codecs, at least according to Qualcomm.

The downside, of course, is this very few phones actually supports Snapdragon Sound. But the Edifier Neobuds Pro S should sound good even on lower quality codecs – the specs are pretty sweet.

You can customize the LEDs on the charging box.

Unfortunately, Edifier has not published any English information about Neobuds Pro S (except some of the information it sent to TechRadar). But these headphones went on sale in China last March, so the specifications and features are available on Edifier’s Chinese website.

Neobuds Pro S uses Knowles drivers for a frequency response of 20Hz ~ 40KHz. They support both Transparency and ANC (with -42dB noise reduction) modes, plus aptXTM Voice technology for crystal clear phone calls.

The headset lasts up to 6 hours on charge (5.5 hours with ANC activated). Combined with the charging case, you look at a total of 25 hours of battery life (or 21.5 hours with ANC). In particular, the IP54 certificate guarantees protection against dust and moisture.

Here’s an interesting thing; you can actually change the color of the Neobuds Pro S boot indicator. It doesn’t look like Edifier said TechRadar for this function, however. Hopefully it is not removed for the global edition.

Edifier’s Neobuds Pro S launched in the United States this July. They cost $ 180, which is significantly more than original Neobuds Pro. Edifier is expected to hope to compete with products such as AirPods Pro and Sony WF-1000XM4.
