Reviewers from ndtv have found the following[***]:
Priced at Rs. 9,990, the Huawei FreeBuds 3i are among the most affordable true wireless headsets with active noise cancellation. Each earpiece weighs 5.5g, and I found the fit to be comfortable over long listening sessions. The earpieces have touch sensors at the top; you can control playback, invoke your phone's voice assistant, and control sound modes through gestures.

The Huawei FreeBuds 3i are the company's latest true-wireless earbuds. They're the follow-up to the more sophisticated FreeBud 3 (£149/€189 at launch), which came out late last year. They feature active noise-cancelling and silicone tips that go into your ear canals.

Sentiment Score[*] 69%
Reviewers from phonearena have found the following[***]:
The newest member of Huawei's actively noise-canceling true wireless earphones is a direct heir of the, and is called FreeBuds 3i. These are different than Honor's that we also have here for comparison with the same raw specs but different design with flashier colors.

Pros[**]
  • Very good noise-canceling true wireless earphones
  • Very good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 58%
Reviewers from techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The FreeBuds 3i cost £89.99 and you can buy them from Huawei directly or other retailers including Amazon. It's a good price for the quality on offer, both sound quality and build quality plus features such as ANC. The closed-fit design does a good job of noise isolation, but there is a noticeable difference when you enable ANC. Call quality is good - so the recipient of my test call told me. Noise cancelling works for phone calls, but struggles when you're outside and it's windy.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek design
  • Good sound quality
  • Active noise cancellation works well
Cons[**]
  • Not as good as AirPods
  • Battery life could be better
