2020 is almost over but the tech innovations are still dropping non-stop! The latest of which is the world’s first intelligent dynamic noise-cancelling earphones – Huawei’s flagship True Wireless Stereo (TWS) earphones called Huawei FreeBuds Pro. We have heard of noise-cancelling devices before but these buds are smart and aware enough to automatically optimize sound for the user’s specific ear type. Its dual microphones positioned inside and outside the earbuds can quickly identify the user’s surrounding noise environment and automatically switch between three noise cancellation modes, too. It can make decisions even quicker than I do!
Here’s a quick rundown of its main features along with specs, price, and pre-order details in case you’re looking for new earbuds on the go:
FUNCTIONAL AND STYLISH DESIGN
Featuring a unique in-ear design, the Huawei FreeBuds Pro come with three varying sizes of silicone earplugs. This combines with a fit detection feature – available in the Huawei AI Life app – allowing users to find the perfect fit. To achieve this, Huawei Audio Lab collected and analyzed ear canal data from over 1,000 real users around the world. Additionally, its distinctive square-shaped stem is sleek and stylish, while minimizing external noise and housing vital technical components. The wind-proof design eliminates sound pickup holes to mitigate wind noise interference. This means users could avoid being affected by outside noise, even when walking, running or cycling. What’s more, users can effortlessly enable active noise cancellation, adjust the volume, answer calls, press play and skip songs using the earphone stems. The gestures are highly intuitive – simply swipe or pinch a specific area to take control. Huawei FreeBuds Pro can accurately detect users’ operating habits to minimize false touches.
INTELLIGENT DYNAMIC NOISE CANCELLATION
Improving on previous models, the noise cancellation is boosted up to 40dB while the closed in-ear fit naturally lends itself to cutting out distractions. Enhancing this further, the dual microphones positioned inside and outside the earbuds can quickly identify your surrounding noise environment and automatically switch between three noise cancellation modes – Ultra Mode, Cozy Mode and General Mode – to effectively cut out environmental noise. Whether the user is at home, going for a walk or in a busy train station, HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro intelligently senses their environment and improves the noise cancelling experience. With active noise cancellation enabled, the battery lasts up to 4.5 hours; without noise cancellation enabled, the battery lasts a whole 7 hours without needing to charge with the included charging case. Simply pinch the earbuds’ stem to control the noise cancellation on or off.
The Huawei FreeBuds Pro’s Awareness Mode and Voice Mode utilize two microphones to help users hear the outside world when crossing the road or having a conversation. Dual Connection with Android, iOS and Windows smart systems means users can seamlessly switch between devices without being tied to one brand.
