Nokia E3110 Wireless Earbuds Rich Go recently unveiled the Nokia E3110 wireless earphones, the latest offering in their wireless earbuds from the E31XX series. The Sensual series segment aims to cater to the audience looking for affordable wireless earbuds with quality offerings, and it does it brilliantly.

Nokia E3110 Wireless Earbuds Design
Nokia E3110 Wireless Earbuds When it comes to the Nokia Earbuds E series, the box is the standard case on which all the necessary details are printed.
Nokia E3110 Wireless Earbuds Once the plastic tray pops out, you’ll be greeted by a smooth charging case and a pair of wireless earbuds, which look very similar to the Nokia Wireless Earbuds E35XX series.
Here the white one looks dope. On the other hand, the ultra-bright, lightweight charging case feels solid as expected, and allows for a satisfactory grip even at 28 grams.
The Nokia branding sits below the single LED indicator, which seems like a downgrade compared to the 4 LED indicators on the Airbus E3101 model. The USB-C charging port sits at the bottom, and partly from the brief build detail on the back, the design is very simple yet very clean.
Nokia E3110 Wireless Earbuds The front opening crease is barely noticeable, which gives it a smooth outlook. Here’s a clever implementation of a single LED. Solid white indicates that the buds are fully charged while blinking indicates that they are being charged.
The LED turns green when the charging case is charging and, as you guessed it, a steady green indicates fully charged, and blinking indicates charging.
The 250mAh charging case can be fully charged in 1.5 hours, which easily gives an additional 12 hours of listening time for the 4 hours provided by each bud. However, it is 4 hours less than the Nokia E3101 wireless earbuds.
While the dimensions of the buds are slightly larger and the design changes give it a more premium look, the Wireless Earbuds A3110 weighs 0.2g less than the E3101 Buds, which is just 3.2g.
They share some similarities like – an IP44 rating which means it’s splash-proof and perfect for your workout session and they both offer Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity which in my experience gives a solid connection within the 10m range.
But the more premium outlook and lighter build aren’t the only upgrades here. The Nokia E3110 wireless earbuds now have 2 major MEMS microphones instead of just one E3101. This means the Nokia E3110 offers better clarity for communication and environmental noise cancellation which is certainly great considering ultra-budget Nokia branded wireless earbuds.
All specs aside, How do these Wireless Earbuds Perform?
Nokia E3110 Wireless Earbuds Well, surprisingly good. While the E3101 looks budget, the E3110 is not, and it seems, however, that it has taken some inspiration from its bigger brother, the E35XX series. Now, it doesn’t have any silicone tips to cover the ear canal more for a more immersive experience, but it’s a win-win situation for what it’s intended.

As we mentioned several times in our wireless earbuds review, passive cancellation by design is much better than active noise cancellation, as it doesn’t drain the battery as much, and the experience is more uniform.
Now designs like this would benefit more with an ambient mode, so you can still easily add to your surroundings without needing to remove the buds. So, in this case, the E3110 doesn’t block out external sounds like its bigger brother, negating the need for an ambient mode altogether.
Nokia E3110 Wireless Earbuds, The sound lacks depth and falls flat, but the music is definitely clear and doesn’t break at maximum output, and for USD13, it’s definitely a fun experience overall. The touch-sensitive panel registers input effectively which is a plus point.

The Nokia E3110 wireless earbuds with better manufacturing technology and better implementation of hardware, are just right to upgrade the budget offerings while maintaining and even lowering the price. The E3110 wireless earbuds excel at this. For USD13, the E3110 is a significant upgrade compared to its predecessor.
Are Nokia earphones good?
Final thoughts. The Nokia earbuds are underwhelming. While they are very lightweight to wear, the sound quality and noise cancellation are poor, plus there are issues with achieving a secure fit in the ears. For the price, there are better models available.
