Design

If you’ve seen other Soundpeats earbuds, the Capsule3 Pro should look familiar to you. That’s because Soundpeats has a consistent design aesthetic shared by all of its TWS earbuds.

The Capsule3 Pro shells have a stem design with rose gold highlights, much like the Soundpeats Life and Soundpeats Air3 Deluxe HS earbuds. They have a matte black finish and angled nozzles to help them fit securely in your ears.

Internally, the Capsule3 Pro has large 12mm dynamic drivers, so you can expect powerful bass and plush vocals. These earbuds are equipped with Bluetooth 5.3 and LDAC support. LDAC is a Hi-Res wireless audio codec that, according to the marketing material “increases the analytical power and presents a pure and faultless high-fidelity sound”.

The charging case is similar to the brand’s other models and has a rounded surface that slips easily into a jeans pocket. There’s a single LED on the front of the case to indicate the battery status and a USB-C charging port on the underside.

The battery life is around 8 hours for the earbuds and a total of 52 hours including the charging case. Overall, I like the Capsule3 Pro’s design and find them comfortable and secure in my ears.

Call, Video and Game Performance

The call quality is pretty decent for a TWS earbud in this price range. Voices sound clear and are loud enough to be heard easily.

Video and gaming performance is excellent. There are no sync issues with YouTube or videos on my iPhone and no noticeable latency even when playing FPS games.

Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)

The ANC works well and blocks out a lot of external noise, especially air conditioners, fans and engine sounds. In Ambient ANC mode, the headphones do not completely block out all external sounds, as they would in traditional noise-cancelling mode. Instead, they allow some external sounds to pass through, which can be helpful in situations where you need to be aware of your surroundings, such as when walking on a busy street.

Soundpeats App

The Soundpeats mobile app is simple but effective. With the app, you can check the battery level of the left and right earbuds, select preset or custom EQs, enable game mode, select the ANC mode and upgrade the firmware.

Sound

The Soundpeats Capsule3 Pro has the classic Soundpeats house sound, distinguished by warm, full-bodied bass, spacious mids and non-fatiguing treble. There are a lot of customization options with the preset and custom EQ so you can really dial in the sound to your personal preference.

One thing I’ve found consistent with all the Soundpeats earbuds I’ve tested is they tend to have a large soundstage and that’s also true with the Capsule3 Pro. Despite their warm and laid-back tonality, the soundstage is both wide and deep.

The bass is punchy and there’s abundant sub-bass rumble when needed. Bass notes are rounded and weighted but well-controlled and never overpowering. If you’re looking for a neutral tuning you’ll need to look elsewhere because these earbuds are tuned for fun and musicality first and foremost.

The midrange has good clarity but still has warm vocals and a pleasing richness. Female vocals could use a bit more presence but that’s easy to rectify with a little EQ. Although there’s some colouration in the mids, they still sound natural and engaging.

In typical TWS fashion, the Capsule3 Pro’s treble is laid-back and softened. It’s not very precise or lively but it’s perfect for long listening sessions and doesn’t cause listener fatigue. Despite the softened treble, I found the detail retrieval was actually quite good.

Comparison

Edifier TWS330 NB review featured
Edifier TWS330 NB

The Edifier TWS33 NB (review here) has a similar stem design and feels about as comfortable in my ears as the Capsule3 Pro. It only has about half the battery life of the Soundpeats and doesn’t have LDAC either. Furthermore, the Edifier’s touch controls are finicky and sometimes unresponsive.

Both earbuds have a similar tuning: emphasized bass, warm albeit slightly recessed mids and softened treble. However, the Soundpeats app gives you more customization options via EQ. If you’re using an Android phone or DAP with LDAC support, the Capsule3 Pro gets the sound quality advantage with better clarity and less compression.

Verdict

Overall, the Soundpeats Capsule3 Pro TWS earbuds are a solid option for those looking for a comfortable and stylish pair of earbuds with good sound quality. The stem design and the angled nozzles provide a secure fit. The 12mm dynamic drivers and LDAC support deliver powerful bass and plush vocals, while the Soundpeats app allows for customization and firmware upgrades.

The ANC works well, and the video and gaming performance is excellent with no noticeable latency. Although the treble is laid-back, it is perfect for extended listening sessions without causing listener fatigue. All in all, the Soundpeats Capsule3 Pro TWS earbuds offer a great combination of design, performance, and customization options.
