Why order the 2 pro + if ya already own the 3 pro? Button controls. That is why. At my job when it’s cold outside and I have a hat on and only 1 free hand as the other is carrying mail it’s a lot easier to control music and calls with the button controls. Plus there’s no accidental touches. They just work better in my opinion but especially when wearing a hat.
Sound. Both sound amazing. Especially with ldac enabled and amazon HD or Tidal. Where these sound different to me is when ya enable the transparency. On the 3 pro they instantly have added bass. The 2+ don’t change at all. Either way tho the 3 pro have more bass than the 2+. Mids and highs are very similar especially with some eq adjustments thru soundcores app. This tho is where the 2 + surprised me. To my ears I hear even more instruments and vocals with the 2+. It’s an even cleaner and wider soundatage especially if you’re using transparency or anc on the 3 pro… without transparency or anc enabled they sound very similar but again no matter what, more bass on 3 pro but wider Soundstage on 2+.
Volume. The 3 pro get a tad bit louder but not a bunch louder. I’d say maybe 2 more clicks in volume.
Battery Life. With ldac enabled on both along with transparency I’m gettin about 2 hrs and 40 min with the 3 pro. With the 2+ I’m getting 4 hrs. This is with both volume at max or near max and both set in custom eq with all of em all the way up except the last slider. That I keep down just a bit to settle down the treble.
Fit . The 2 pro+ are bigger than the 3 pro . That being said for my ears I could wear either all day with zero fatigue. With the included wings and eartips I’d find it hard for anyone to not get a great fit with both pairs. The charging case is also larger for the 2+ but can throw either in my pocket comfortably.
Final thoughts. I’m a music junkie. I’ve owned jabra 75t Sony xm3 xm4 Bose quietcomforts Master Dynamic mwo7+ Edifier Neobuds Pro Sennheiser momentum 2 and bunch of others like the earfun free pro the free pro 2 soundcore life a2nc soundpeats t2 soundoeats mini pro. To me not a single pair of these beat either of these soundcore pairs when it comes to sound. For overall features and sound none touch the 3 pro. But, the 2 pro + have really surprised me here. I knew they’d sound good but I didn’t expect them to be this good. When I’m working in nice weather I will grab the 3 pro every time it’s just a more powerful awesome sound. The transparency is also a bit better. The kicker tho is this . If I’m at home and my wife and kids are gone at lake or something and our house is quiet and I want to really pick apart some songs and hear the most instruments and vocals and tad wider Soundstage, I’d grab the 2 pro +. Especially with my music library which is mostly rock from 50s 60s 70s.This all bein said both are a phenomenal pair of earbuds. When the 3 pro are 129 or couple times 99.99 they’re an absolute steal. I’d buy them tomorrow if I had to even at their full retail of 169. If I had only 60 bucks and absolutely needed anc and transparency I’d grab the life a2nc or earfun free pro 2. If I absolutely love button controls am good with great noise isolation as the 2 pro + block out a ton of background noise as is and want some of the best sound in any pair of earbuds at any price along with good transparency mode and great battery life… well then I cannot recommend any pair more than the 2 pro +. . Again, both pairs are fn amazing. Yes I’m a huge soundcore fan ever since the liberty 2 pro. With that tho I always go for best sound. I genuinely believe these are the 2 best pairs of earbuds made for sound. If I felt one of the others were better I’d say it here and I’d still be rocking them over these . Both are a joy to listen to and I cannot wait to see what comes next from soundcore .
To any and all who see this or read this I apologize for any misspelled words or whatever else. I’m a ft mailman music junkie with a beautiful wife and 3 kiddos under the age of 8. Besides my family and friends and my sobriety there is nothing I love more than listening to music. But when a product is phenomenal and brings great joy to my heart and ears I Def like to share that with others and I love reading or watching others who do a much better job than I could ever dream of when they review and share their thoughts on products. Again im just a goofball music junkie who loves audio products and who a lil bit wishes he’d paid more attention in hs when it comes to writing somethin like this here or anywhere else ahahahahaha!!! Take care soundcore community !! Time to go shoot hoops with my boys in the snow/rain. Been the weirdest April I can remember for weather here in mn.Yesterday was 70 and today it’s snowing and raining!!
