The Huawei FreeBuds Pro are true wireless noise-cancelling earbuds. They're the follow up to last year's FreeBud 3, which was criticised for lacking bass. This time around, the company has ditched the open-fit design in favour of silicone eartips to better secure them in your ears. Battery life is stated at around four-and-a-half hours with ANC on and seven with it off.
Reviewers from Nextpit have found the following[***]:
The Huawei FreeBuds Pro are an absolute highlight when it comes to the True Wireless Sound earbuds market. The headphones have a comfortable fit and seem to only exert pressure in my right ear, where I seem to have a small, endearing anomaly on the upper cartilage, which thankfully seems to be less pronounced in the other ear. Active noise reduction offers three modes that cannot be set manually, but they do come into effect dynamically as soon as the ambient noise changes.
Reviewers from Techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The FreeBuds Pro are a budget option for those wanting noise cancelling without spending the heady £249/$249 required for a pair of Apple's finest. Inside each bud is an 11mm driver which is suspended in Huawei's custom-designed stabiliser. They have various functions besides picking up your voice for phone calls, such as active noise cancellation, wind reduction and also for the awareness mode which allows you to hear what people are saying.
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The FreeBuds Pro are Huawei's first foray into the premium earbuds market. First set of buds to feature active noise cancellation with an open-ear fit. Available in Carbon Black, Ceramic White, and Silver Frost. Smart, intuitive controls will save you from reaching for your phone to change track or adjust the volume.
Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The FreeBuds Pro look really good, with a far more angular stem than the usual rounded off style. You'll find three silicone tips in the box, and throughout my week with the buds I've found them to be very comfortable, even during long listening sessions. The ANC is certainly stronger than on the AirPods Pro, with Huawei's rival especially good at cutting out the drawl of a car engine. The mic system does a great job at reducing wind noise when talking outside.
Reviewers from Whathifi have found the following[***]:
Huaweis FreeBuds Pros are wireless noise-cancelling headphones. Powered by Huawei's AI Life app, they can be paired with any smartphone. Battery life is 4.5 hours with ANC or seven hours without, which is competitive when pitched against the AirPods Pros and Sony WF-1000XM3s. However, they struggle to uncover finer details and communicate the subtleties of a track.
