Honor Earbuds 3 Pro

Like the Honor Watch GS 3, the new Honor Earbuds 3 Pro are premium TWS earbuds.

Honor claims that the Earbuds 3 Pro offer up to 6 hours of music playback on a single charge, with the charging case offering an additional 24 hours of playback. The earbuds also offer fast charging support, which will let users charge them up from 0-65% in about 10 minutes. The earbuds also have an IP54 rating for water and dust resistance, while the charging case gets an IP52 rating. Honor has not shared the pricing and availability details for the Earbuds 3 Pro either, but we’ll make sure to let you know as soon as we have all the details.
