7 Reviews for Soundcore VR P10 Wireless Gaming Earbuds

  1. FTB

    These are not your average true wireless earbuds. In a saturated market of wireless earbuds, these bring a unique feature that opens up many new possibilities of uses that most people might not even know. If you’ve ever used bluetooth earbuds and noticed that what you were watching or playing wasn’t matching up with the sound, then you’ve experienced audio latency. Bluetooth in its current state is the guilty party that can cause that effect where the lips don’t match the voice. Some might not be bothered by this, but once you see it, you can’t stop thinking about it. Some hardcore gamers get around this by using 2.4ghz instead of the Bluetooth protocol. 2.4ghz headphones have virtually no latency whatsoever, but require you use a dongle to plug into your device.These Soundcore VR P10 headphones are hybrids with both functions. The dongle allows imperceptibly low latency. But because they are also capable of using the bluetooth protocol, you are able to connect these to both your gaming device and your phone. While gaming or watching videos, if you get a call on your phone, it will automatically lower the volume on your game or video, while prioritizing your call volume. It’s a seamless experience.2.4ghz headphones existed for a while, but until recently, they were mostly over-the-ear style. Personally, I can’t stand anything on my head for long periods of time due to the pressure and overheating. There are only a handful of in-ear earbuds with 2.4ghz dongles at the time of this review. This one is the ONLY one that has a passthrough charging feature on the dongle itself. If you use a dongle on a device with only one USB-C port, then you’ll have to choose between charging or listening. These dongles allow you to do both. With the battery life of devices like the Quest 2, you’ll definitely need to do both at the same time.Non-gamers:If you have a phone, tablet, or laptop that you use to watch movies or shows, take zoom calls, or listen to music, as long as it has a USB-C port you can instantly connect these headphones to your device without fumbling around in the bluetooth settings trying to get it to pair. This is immensely helpful if you constantly switch between using a laptop, a tablet, and a phone. Imagine you are watching a movie on a tablet and you get a zoom call on your laptop. Instead of unpairing and repairing, you just slap the dongle in. Additionally, Anker has stated that more dongles will be available for purchase soon, meaning that you can have multiple dongles, each plugged into a device you use often, and just switch via the app. All the while having low latency.PS5:I’ve tested it with the PS5. It works flawlessly. Instant connection and no noticeable latency. The sound is very immersive and I can easily tell the direction of footsteps in-game. Additionally, these earbuds finally allow you to use wireless headphones with your PS5. Previously, you had to either use over-the-ear style 2.4ghz headphones, or use a wired headphone plugged into your controller. Otherwise the latency would be preposterous. If you use your PS5 as a media player (Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, etc.) you’ll be able to enjoy private listening with wireless earbuds and have no latency. Pair this with a PS5 remote and now you have one of the best and most powerful “Smart-TVs” with a private listening function. If you live in an apartment and watch movies, you’re probably constantly turning down the volume when an explosion or shot rocks you to your core, and then turning it back up because you can barely hear the whisper dialogue in the next scene. With these headphones, you can peacefully watch your movie as intended, while not worrying about cables, latency, or your neighbors getting mad.Steamdeck:Works exactly as you might expect. I have not run into any issues. Passthrough charging works great. If the sound suddenly doesn’t work and you see “echo-sink-cancel”, then its a bug with the Steamdeck, not the headphones. Restart to fix. Be aware that if you buy the official Steamdeck dock, that there is no USB-C out port on that dock. You may have to buy a USB-C to USB-A adapter for the dongle.Quest 2:These headphones were made for the Meta Quest 2. In VR, if you have any sort of latency, it could make things very disorientating and nausea inducing. These are perfect for having an immersive experience and reducing VR sickness. One cool feature is that if you are using it with the Quest, you can turn down the 2.4ghz signal to prevent interference with your wifi. Since the earbuds are so close to the dongle when you use it with the quest, you don’t need the signal to be strong. Also, the quest dies very quickly. These are the only true wireless earbuds with a dongle that lets you charge and listen at the same time. They sound much better than the stock speakers on the Quest 2 and allow you to pinpoint the direction that sounds are coming from. The point of VR is immersion. Audio immersion is just as important as visual immersion.Switch:The passthrough function does not work with a Switch. I believe it’s a limitation with the Switch’s software. It doesn’t seem to allow the one USB-C port to have multiple functions at the same time. The headphones still work beautifully via the dongle, but you won’t be able to charge at the same time. Not the fault of the soundcore earbuds though. Maybe it can be patched by a switch software update in the future. If you play in docked mode, maybe try plugging the dongle into a USB-C to USB-A adapter and then into the dock. I have not tried this, but it might work.PC:Not every PC has USB-C ports. Not to worry, I have tested these with a USB-C to USB-A adapter and it works great. If your PC does not have a USB-C port, you will need to buy an adapter separately. Otherwise, all features (volume adjust, low latency) function well.Mac:Works really well. You can even adjust volume with a tap on the earbuds (gesture can be adjusted in the mobile app). Since these are both bluetooth and 2.4ghz, you can have them connected to your phone and MacBook at the same time for the ultimate productivity experience. The sound will come through both depending on which device you are using. Example, Zoom on MacBook to phone call on iPhone automatically.iPad:Also works well. Passthrough charging is quite important since the iPad only has one USB-C port. If you game on your iPad, you’ll appreciate it.ChromeOS/Chromebook:Works fine but currently there is a weird bug in ChromeOS with USB-C headphones. The volume will adjust normally up to around 50% volume where the loudness suddenly blasts your ears at 51% volume. Be careful with Chromebooks until they patch this. Keep it under 50% or test it past 50% with them out of your ears.**Cons**With certain devices (Switch, Some Tablets), these headphones are a bit limited. The passthrough charging feature won’t work unless your device allows that USB-C port to multitask. So be aware of your devices functionality if you’re buying this to use with a specific device.With certain devices (Switch, PS5), adjusting the volume via tapping the earbuds don’t work. This is again a limitation of the software of those devices, not the earbuds. On the PS5, it is a painful multi-step process to adjust the volume in their menus. Hopefully a software patch will fix this as USB-C headphones become more popular. On mobile devices like Android and iOS tablets and phones, PCs, and MacBooks, it works just fine.The dongle is kept in the top part of the case via a magnet. It’s very easy to put it in, but kind of a pain to remove the dongle since it’s recessed so far in. If you have bigger hands, this might irritate you. I suggest taking the earbuds out first before trying to take the dongle out.With the exception of some devices, the headphones work amazingly and sound great. They solve a very niche but very annoying problem. Get them, you won’t regret it.

    Overall I agree with the good reviews. If you want low latency for PC gaming (and I guess it works with other devices too) these IMO are great for the price. I don’t know what the Logitech’s G Fits will sound like, but those are expensive as hell.I just wanted to add some details I’ve noticed while trying to play shooters on PC with these:1.) While you can pair the earbuds to two devices at the same time (one via dongle and one via bluetooth), using the bluetooth device just mutes the device the dongle’s connected to. Can’t listen to two things at once, which is fine, but just know that going in. (Also technically later on you can apparently get multiple dongles but I’ve not tried it). The bluetooth device takes priority over the dongle… so the dongle will only transmit audio if the bluetooth device is not transmitting any noises.2.) The ear tips it comes with are fine, BUT there’s no kind of mesh or anything to prevent earwax from getting in the actual speaker grill… so, if you have any amount of earwax I strongly recommend you get earbud tips with some kind of mesh to catch your wax so it doesn’t end up in the earbud. I had some galaxy bud tips with the mesh so I just used those.3.) I’m not sure if this is just interference in my condo, but the earbud dongle is connected to the back of my PC, which is under my desk… and the signal keeps intermittently cutting out if I angle my head a certain way sometimes, or just randomly whether I move or not. Sometimes it’s one ear, sometimes it’s both… sometimes it’s fine. Doesn’t cut out for more than a second, but sometimes it goes in-and-out pretty quickly. I have (wireless) HyperX Cloud Flight S headphones and they did this too until a firmware update completely eliminated this problem for me… so I’m not sure. Nobody else seems to complain about this so it might just be me. THAT SAID, most of the time it works fine… I have to fidget sometimes, it’s weird. Again, maybe just me.4.) I’m not an audiophile. I’ve been using +6,+4,-4,+1,+5,-4,+0,+5 as my EQ settings… is this good? I’ve no clue. I enjoy it… I suggest you find one online that works for you!5.) The “Super Hearing” mode that enhances footsteps… I don’t know, maybe it works, the cost is that everything sounds bad so I don’t use it.6.) You can set a “tap” of the left or right earbud (you can program them independently) to Volume up or down, Previous track, next track, play/pause, or disable it. You can program those to double tap as well (can’t disable double tap) but can additionally bind double tapping to turning the mic on/off, or enable/disabling super hearing. Holding for 2s can also be programmed the same as double tap can.7.) The microphone on this thing is serviceable… better than I thought it would be, and will work, but it’s not super clear. Sounds like you’re underwater a bit, if that makes sense. Good if you’re just talking with friends, I suppose.8.) Range on the dongle is a bit less than what bluetooth would be.It loses a star for me due to the connection issues.

    I love the dongle! I hate constantly pairing and re-pairing bluetooth to switch devices. I love that I can just keep it paired to my phone via bluetooth and just move the dongle between my Oculus Quest 2, Steam Deck, TV and PC. No additional pairing and works perfectly when I plug it in to any of my devices right away. Especially nice for my Steam Deck, which has a great pause and resume feature for games, but my previous bluetooth earphones would not resume with the unit and I would have to re-connect the bluetooth every time I turned the Steam Deck back on. With the P10 dongle plugged in, it resumes sound on my P10 right when I turn on the Steam Deck without having to go into the settings to reconnect.Sound quality is also decent enough. I do wish that there was a bit of an extension or stand off on the usb dongle since it won’t fit directly into my Steam Deck and some other devices with a protective case on. For those, I need to use a short USB-C extension.Overall I love these and hope other manufacturers will follow suit with the dongles!

    Colour me surprise, these earbuds has no latency issue at all if you are using the wifi dongle, I can accurately play rhythm games on my smartphone without any audio sync dely setting used. It’s as fast as using a wired ear buds.I have the Soundcore Liberty 2 Air, and the airpod form factor keeps falling out of my ears, so the wing tips of the Soundcore Liberty 2 solve that problem. Now this Soundcore VR ear buds, I was worry that the earbuds will full out often like the Liberty 2 air, but it didn’t at all. It actually stayed in place no matter how much I shake my head and move my jaw (like eating motion).The led is both a plus and a minus. sure it consumes power, but it is so handy when you misplace the earbuds, looking around for it.Here are some flaws with these ear buds:* If you are using any device with a case, you will need a usb-c extender.* The bass is on the lower side, so you need to go into the app and turn up the bass. It’s not too much of an issue on a device with the app. Not too sure on a device with the soundcore app. Bass is pretty important for explosion sound effects.* Some apps, like Whatsapp, do not play nice with the mic on wifi. You will soumd like a chipmunk for the first 2s of using the mic before it starts working properly. It’s pretty hilarious. So I advise you to test the mic on wifi using your most common voice communication app to see if there is any problem. Some app works perfectly from the get-go. Hopefully this is not the case when playing games. Bluetooth mic works perfectly though.* The bluetooth mode does not support Aptx-LL and Aptx-adaptive for low latency since the wifi is fast.* Since these earbuds are made for low latency for vr gaming, not for listening to music, so the music audio quality may not be up to your standards. It only support SBC, ACC, and LC3 which is fine for gaming.* Lack of any noise cancelations technology.This is an earbud with a niche purpose, for gaming. If you want an earbud for music, or an earbud with quality mic for conversion, look elsewhere. If it is for rhythm gaming, I advise getting a wired earbud with great sound quality instead.

    If you want ear buds for your oculus don’t think twice about these – they are great – the app is very useful. If I lost these inspiring buy then again in a second -great purchase. As ear buds they are acceptable – but don’t expect AirPods

    Pros:- Super easy plug-and-play dongle, Windows automatically sets it up, good to go in under a minute.- Works as advertised! Lighting fast, there’s NO detectable lag in gaming, whether VR or 2D.- Great design, the buds and case look much more expensive than $70.- Good amount of options on the Soundcore app.- Good sound quality out of the box, but you can tune it with the app to be even better.- Awesome purple LEDs on the buds. (Can be changed to a few other color options in the app.)- Great battery life. They last longer than my longest VR gaming session ever would.Cons- You’ll need to buy a USB-A male to USB-C female adapter if your PC doesn’t already have a USB-C port.- Not the most comfortable earbuds I’ve owned, but not the worst either.- Sound levels on PC could be higher.I have 2 other sets of wireless earbuds from Soundcore, the Liberty 3 Pro and the Life P3, both of which are great, but the Life P3 are very comfortable for longer periods, while I could never get the Liberty 3 Pro to fit comfortably no matter what I did. These VR P10 buds fall somewhere just behind the Life P3, where they feel comfortable at first, but after about an hour of play, they start to hurt my ears a bit. If I move them around a little, it will alleviate some of the discomfort, but you know how some earbuds are so comfortable that you might forget you have them on? Yeah, these never quite reach that point. On the plus side, they stay put and never feel like they’re going to work their way out of my ear while playing VR games either, which is important. The discomfort could be from the shape of my ear, so they might be more comfortable (or less?) for other people.Out of the box the sound quality is pretty good for music and gaming, although some might find it to be a little too flat, so I definitely recommend connecting them to your mobile device with the Soundcore app and tweaking the EQ to your taste, mostly when it comes to games. (Bump those low freq’s up for gunfire and explosions.) You don’t need to leave the Bluetooth connected between your phone and the VR P10’s, they will remember the EQ settings even after you disconnect and switch to PC audio output. (For music, I always listen with a flat or no EQ, but I have better earbuds for music listening sessions. I got these specifically for VR gaming only.) My HMD is a Samsung Odyssey+, if you’re wondering.I really like the case design and the way the buds snap magnetically into the holding positions, and the white shell of the buds with silver accents make them look more expensive than they are. The LED’s are freakin’ dope too. (They can be disabled in the app if you’re worried about battery life, but from what I’ve seen so far, they have little effect on battery drain.) The buds are a little slippery though, so make sure you got a grip on them whenever you are putting them away or taking them out of the case.I got a couple of inexpensive USB-A to USB-C adapters, and when I plugged the VR P10 dongle in the adapter and then into my PC, Windows recognized the dongle within seconds, and soon after I was able to select it as an audio output from the sound popup in the taskbar. Easy peasy. No fiddling needed. The only downside is that the buds are a bit on the quiet side, and even though I don’t have any hearing problems, I have to push the volume up past 80 to really hear everything while gaming, but to be fair, although 100 (full volume) is easily bearable, that’s more than I would ever actually need, so it works out alright.

    Whilst I mostly bought this for the same reason as most other people, I did find another use that surprised me – whilst plugged into my Macbook, I realised the latency was so low that I could actually use it for some very basic music creation tasks!Hooked up my audio interface on a different USB port and plugged my guitar in, and the playback through the headphones is almost as low latency as just playing through a wired headset!I’ve since added a wireless plug for my guitar and now I can get fully expressive without wires, also making the whole setup far less messy and more portable.My ONLY criticism at this point are as follows:1. Whilst you CAN use 2.4GHz and Bluetooth connections at the same time, it swaps between the two, instead of allowing them both to play at the same time. Would have loved to see separate audio levels between the two in the app. Not sure if this is a hardware or software limitation though!2. I would also love to be able to buy additional adapters! It’s frustrating that this is a possibility, but the additional ones aren’t unavailable.

    Colour me surprise, these earbuds has no latency issue at all if you are using the wifi dongle, I can accurately play rhythm games on my smartphone without any audio sync dely setting used. It’s as fast as using a wired ear buds.I have the Soundcore Liberty 2 Air, and the airpod form factor keeps falling out of my ears, so the wing tips of the Soundcore Liberty 2 solve that problem. Now this Soundcore VR ear buds, I was worry that the earbuds will full out often like the Liberty 2 air, but it didn’t at all. It actually stayed in place no matter how much I shake my head and move my jaw (like eating motion).The led is both a plus and a minus. sure it consumes power, but it is so handy when you misplace the earbuds, looking around for it.Here are some flaws with these ear buds:* If you are using any device with a case, you will need a usb-c extender.* The bass is on the lower side, so you need to go into the app and turn up the bass. It’s not too much of an issue on a device with the app. Not too sure on a device with the soundcore app. Bass is pretty important for explosion sound effects.* Some apps, like Whatsapp, do not play nice with the mic on wifi. You will soumd like a chipmunk for the first 2s of using the mic before it starts working properly. It’s pretty hilarious. So I advise you to test the mic on wifi using your most common voice communication app to see if there is any problem. Some app works perfectly from the get-go. Hopefully this is not the case when playing games. Bluetooth mic works perfectly though.* The bluetooth mode does not support Aptx-LL and Aptx-adaptive for low latency since the wifi is fast.* Since these earbuds are made for low latency for vr gaming, not for listening to music, so the music audio quality may not be up to your standards. It only support SBC, ACC, and LC3 which is fine for gaming.* Lack of any noise cancelations technology.This is an earbud with a niche purpose, for gaming. If you want an earbud for music, or an earbud with quality mic for conversion, look elsewhere. If it is for rhythm gaming, I advise getting a wired earbud with great sound quality instead.

    I love the dongle! I hate constantly pairing and re-pairing bluetooth to switch devices. I love that I can just keep it paired to my phone via bluetooth and just move the dongle between my Oculus Quest 2, Steam Deck, TV and PC. No additional pairing and works perfectly when I plug it in to any of my devices right away. Especially nice for my Steam Deck, which has a great pause and resume feature for games, but my previous bluetooth earphones would not resume with the unit and I would have to re-connect the bluetooth every time I turned the Steam Deck back on. With the P10 dongle plugged in, it resumes sound on my P10 right when I turn on the Steam Deck without having to go into the settings to reconnect.Sound quality is also decent enough. I do wish that there was a bit of an extension or stand off on the usb dongle since it won’t fit directly into my Steam Deck and some other devices with a protective case on. For those, I need to use a short USB-C extension.Overall I love these and hope other manufacturers will follow suit with the dongles!

    When can we buy more dongles? I want to put them on my other PCs

    We appreciate your support of soundcore VR P10. Please know that we are trying our best to push the accessory arrangement, it is currently being quickly arranged. I'm informed that the USB-C dongle probably will be available in December. You are more than welcome to stay tuned with us; once the stock is available, we will surely release them in time on our Amazon official store. If you have any questions or need any help, please do not hesitate to tell us.

    Can you listen to music streamed from the phone (e.g. Spotify) while you are playing a game, with a mix of both audio sources?

    No I don’t believe so. Because I use it on my PS5 and it switches to my iPhone if I click on a video. While I’m listening to something on my iPhone, I no longer hear anything from my PS5, until I disconnect from my iPhone. Honestly I just had my iPhone forget the Soundcore VR P10. It got annoying when the sound would switch from the PS5 to the iPhone while playing a game.

    In order to use with ps5 do i need to buy anything separate? thank you in advance

    no you just plug the dongle into the usb c port in the front of the ps5. that’s it

    Can you use the ear buds just with an iPhone if necessary?

    Thank you for your interest in soundcore VR P10. Please know you can just use the earbuds with an iPhone via Bluetooth connection.

    Does the case have wireless charging?

    On their website they have confirmed the case does not have wireless charging
