Huawei today announced the launch of its latest flagship True Wireless Stereo (TWS) earphones, the Huawei FreeBuds Pro. Huawei FreeBuds Pro is the world’s first intelligent, dynamic noise-cancelling earphones and this year’s flagship among Huawei’s audio products, further establishing Huawei as a pioneer and innovator in the TWS earphones field. The new earphones deliver exquisite craftsmanship, freedom from wires, excellent sound quality and long-lasting comfort along with an innovative, unique form of active noise cancellation technology.
Combining art and technology to shape the future of design
Huawei designed the new Huawei FreeBuds Pro with style and comfort in mind. Adhering to the design principle of minimalism, the new Huawei FreeBuds Pro strip back any unnecessary design features while ensuring each element is functional and stylish.
Featuring a unique in-ear design, the Huawei FreeBuds Pro comes with three varying sizes of silicone earplugs. This, combined with the fit detection feature – available in the Huawei AI Life app – allows users to find the perfect fit. To achieve this, Huawei Audio Lab collected and analysed ear canal data from over 1,000 real users around the world.
Additionally, the new Huawei FreeBuds Pro’s distinctive square-shaped stem is sleek and stylish, while minimising external noise and housing vital technical components. The wind-proof design eliminates sound pickup holes to mitigate wind noise interference, which means users can avoid being affected by outside noise, even when walking, running or cycling. Users can effortlessly enable active noise cancellation, adjust the volume, answer calls, press play and skip songs using the Huawei FreeBuds Pro 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 minimise false touches.
Redefine noise cancellation with the world’s first intelligent dynamic noise cancellation
As Huawei’s newest and most advanced flagship audio product, the Huawei FreeBuds Pro delivers outstanding audio quality. The listening experience is enhanced by new and intelligent features, which are set to redefine the TWS headphone market.
With the Huawei FreeBuds Pro, Huawei’s audio engineers added a customised dynamic suspension between the speaker and a dynamic driver. Emulating a technique used by leading Hi-Fi manufacturers, this stabilises the acoustic system of the entire earphone, reducing vibrations to deliver a crisp and clear sound. The FreeBuds Pro’s audio excellence is complemented by Dynamic EQ Adjustment, a new feature which uses data from the in-ear microphone to automatically optimise the sound for the user’s specific ear type.
Huawei FreeBuds Pro is the world’s first TWS earphones that feature 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 seven hours without needing to charge using the included charging case. Simply pinch the earbuds’ stem to control the noise cancellation on or off.
In addition, Huawei FreeBuds Pro are the world’s first smart dual-antenna Bluetooth earphones. On Huawei FreeBuds Pro, each earphone is equipped with two Bluetooth antennas that offer 360° omnidirectional Bluetooth signal coverage for a more stable connection.
Connect the digital audio world with smarter features
A whole host of other smart features further enhance the user experience, making Huawei FreeBuds Pro a delight to use. Awareness Mode and Voice Mode utilise the 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.
