Huawei has been on the news quite a lot recently due to its involvement in the ongoing Trade War between the US and China. But there is finally some positive news from the company. It has just revealed its brand new true-wireless, in-ear buds called ‘FreeBuds 3’.
Apple could be revealing its own AirPods 3 in the near future. But until then, the FreeBuds 3 could easily rival Apple’s current line of in-ear buds, AirPods 2. Design wise, FreeBuds 3 looks quite similar to the AirPods. One noticeable difference is the position and shape of the speakers in the FreeBuds 3. But Huawei is offering a lot more than just a sleek design in these in-ear buds.
Here are some of the notable features offered by FreeBuds 3:
Like we’ve mentioned above, at first glance, the FreeBuds 3 look strikingly similar to the AirPods 2. If you had them on, chances are people would think you had a pair of AirPods on. But despite this, there is a notable difference in the position and shape of the speakers in the FreeBuds 3. Furthermore, the FreeBuds 3 are slightly bigger than Apple’s AirPods.
The design of the FreeBuds 3 ensures that they will fit well in your ears. Huawei claims that the FreeBuds 3 have a good grip on the ears and will be perfect for jogging. Regarding the colors of these in-ear buds, that’s another point for Huawei over Apple. The FreeBuds 3 will be available in two different colors, black and white. AirBuds are only available in white.
The FreeBuds 3 case, like a case of AirPods, doubles as a charger. It is however shaped differently, with a circular shape.
To the true audiophile, it is what a pair of headphones packs on the inside that matters more than its design. And the FreeBuds 3 promise plenty of amazing features. Firstly, they come with the Kirin A1 chip. These chips were made using Huawei’s own silicon, and were designed to be more stable and faster than other chips. This gives the FreeBuds 3 a high quality audio. Furthermore, this chip will also aid in reducing ambient noise. And they also make fast pairing possible with other Huawei devices.
These headphones also come with a bone sensor, which immediately detects when you start talking, so as to reorient the microphones to focus only on your voice. This feature will come handy when you’re making phone calls in a noisy environment.
Another important, and possibly deal-breaking, feature in the FreeBuds 3 is the noise-cancelling. Huawei’s FreeBuds 3 are the first open fit in-ear buds to feature active noise-cancelling.
Despite all the ruckus involving the Trade War, Huawei is currently considered to be one of the best smartphone manufacturers in the world. But these new in-ear buds from Huawei really go to show that the company wants to be recognized as more than just a smartphone manufacturer.
