Comparison: Levoit Core 300S vs P350 – What are the Differences?

Coverage Area & Efficiency

With an effective range of up to 20 m² (219 ft²) each, the Core 300S and P350 purify the air in bedrooms, home offices, and other relatively small rooms. The coverage area is based on an assumed five air changes (ACH) per hour in a room with a ceiling height of 2.4 m (8 ft).

Therefore, both purifiers could be used in bigger rooms, with the amount of ACH decreasing accordingly. For example, if you live somewhere with moderate air pollution and are content with two ACH, the recommended room size would increase to up to 50 m² (548 ft²).

Clean Air Delivery Rate

Using Levoit’s 3-stage filtration process, both models first utilize a pre-filter to deal with large pollutants including dust, hair, and pet fur. Next, an H13 True HEPA filter captures at least 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 µm, for example, pollen and pet dander.

In the last step, smoke, fumes, VOCs, and household odors such as cooking smells and pet odors are neutralized by a layer of activated carbon. The Core 300S does all this at a rate of 240 m³/h (141 CFM), slightly below the P350’s CADR of 246 m³/h (145 CFM).

Working Noise

In sleep mode, both models operate at a noise level as low as 24 decibels (dB). When running at full speed, the Core 300S has a minimal advantage, maxing out at 48 dB compared to 50 dB for the P350.

Unlike its competitor, the Core 300S supports auto mode, in which it will automatically adjust its fan speed based on air quality. As soon as pollution levels start to decrease again after a sudden spike, its fan speed and noise level will decrease accordingly.

Sensors & Display

To gather the real-time data needed for its auto mode, the Core 300S is equipped with Levoit’s AirSight Plus technology. Using a high-sensitivity laser dust sensor, it continuously scans its surroundings for airborne pollutants.

An indicator ring on top of the Core 300S reveals the current air quality at a quick glance, with blue signifying very good and red being unhealthy. The display of the P350, on the other hand, allows you to change some settings, but does not contain any information about air quality.

Connectivity & Compatibility

You can use a Wi-Fi connection, your smartphone, and the VeSync app to monitor and control the Core 300S remotely. This allows you to turn the purifier on and off, change the speed, create a schedule, view the remaining filter life, and more.

If you have your hands full, for example while cooking, you can even interact with the Core 300S using only your voice. Thanks to its compatibility with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, it can be seemingly integrated with your smart home.

Conclusion: Levoit Core 300S vs P350 – Which is the Better Air Purifier?

In addition to the similar coverage area and almost similar Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR), the Levoit Air Purifier Core 300S includes an advanced sensor that allows you to keep track of air quality and let it run in auto mode, as well as the ability to monitor and control it remotely.

The Levoit Air Purifier Core P350, on the other hand, convinces with its tweaked filtration process. Combining an activated carbon filter with Levoit’s ARC formula, it has its strengths in absorbing and decomposing pet odors – making it a preferred choice for pet owners.
