Life P3 mic issues after update

After updating the firmware on the Life P3 In-Ear headphones the mic quality during phone calls has diminished substantially :disappointed:. I have done all troubleshooting including the fun unpairing-repairing method and nothing is changed…is anyone experiencing this issue…I have them connected to a new iPhone SE 2nd Generation which has recent version of Bluetooth functionality

Can’t say anything about the issue because my Life P3 still not arrived.

hi, we are sorry to learn about the microphone issue with your Life P3 after the firmware update, it seems that it is unusual.

I truly appreciate you’ve tried some troubleshooting already. In order to further assist you, could you let us know:

  • what the firmware version you have now
    -Use the default phone call on another phone to see if it makes any difference.
    -Reset the earbuds:
  1. Place the earbuds in the charging case and leave the lid open.
  2. Press and hold the button on the case for 10 seconds until the 3 LED indicators blink white 3 times and then flashes white in sequence continuously. This confirms that the reset was successful and your earbuds can be connected normally.
    -Test it with a different device

If the performance of the microphone still performs the same, please drop an email to "service@soundcore.com" by detailing the issue and the order# for any further WARRANTY assistance.

Had a similar issue with Android 11 and fw update - awful call quality but all else ok.
Turned off phone wifi and voila, BT call quality came back. And even with wifi back on, it’s not all wifi connections, varies with router.
So for some reason some wifi connections interfere with BT call quality on this phone. (And it’s all my BT buds but the P3 is worst affected)
Go figure
