Vivo unveiled a bunch of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 phones at an event yesterday. Along with this, the company introduced the Vivo TWS 3 and TWS 3 Pro earbuds in China. It is the successor to the Vivo TWS 2 that was announced in 2021. So, without further ado, here are the specifications, features, availability, and expected price of the Vivo TWS 3, TWS 3 Pro in Nepal.
Vivo TWS 3, TWS 3 Pro Overview:
Both the earbuds in the TWS 3 series have a traditional in-ear design on an angled earbud with a small stem. The latter is a touch-sensitive area on which users can tap to can control various functions.
Each bud on the TWS 3 Series buds weighs around 5 grams and supports a smart wear-detection feature. Similarly, the IP54 rating ensures that the buds are water and dust-resistant. Both the TWS 3 and 3 Pro are available in white and their own shade of blue.
Vivo has made significant improvements to the TWS 3 and TWS 3 Pro over its predecessor. This year, active noise cancellation has been improved to reduce noise by up to 49 dB. It also works in a wider frequency range, reaching up to 4000Hz, making it better at filtering human voices as well as medium-frequency sounds.
Meanwhile, when you want to listen to the outside world, adjust the level of ANC to match your surroundings. When it recognizes that someone is talking to you, it automatically activates the passthrough mode and enhances human voice.
Vivo even catered to vloggers, as there is something called the high-quality binaural audio recording, which makes use of the three-mic setup on the buds for high-definition recording. You can also use this feature to cancel out background noise during phone calls.
Furthermore, the earbuds support the aptX Lossless codec, allowing them to stream CD-quality audio without any loss of detail (hence “Lossless”). Because this type of audio transmission requires either 1.1Mbps or 1.2Mbps bitrate, Vivo makes use of 1.2Mbps bitrates on both the TWS 3 and 3 Pro.
The duo also features Vivo’s self-developed ultra-wideband unit that can reproduce sounds from 5Hz to 40kHz. The audio drive size measures 12.2mm and has 3-layer nano-composite diaphragm. And the brand is also offering 360° spatial audio feature here.
Besides these shared sets of specifications, the TWS 3 Pro has some exclusivity of its own. It is the world’s first Hi-Fi earphone with its own audio chip. It is designed to produce sound with minimal distortion, delivering results that are similar to the original audio source.
Backing it up is the tuning of earphones for extremely low distortion, with a Total Harmonic Distortion plus Noise, or THD+N of 0.002% or less. More about THD+N here.
Likewise, there’s an auxiliary listening mode that is said to assist hearing-impaired people. It can also detect users’ body temperatures.
Rest of the specs
The TWS 3 series enjoys Bluetooth 5.3 and LE Audio support which lowers the latency to 55ms.
In terms of battery life, the vanilla Vivo TWS 3 has a standalone runtime of 10 hours that can be increased to 40 hours with the case. The TWS 3 Pro has less listening time, clocking in at 6.8 hours on its own and up to 30 hours with the case. These figures are for both models with ANC turned off.
Each bud has a 53mA battery, while the charging case on the Pro has a 510mAh cell versus 430mAh on the non-Pro.
