Reviewers from androidauthority have found the following***:
The Huawei FreeLace Pro are a great choice for those who want the comfort and ease of use of wireless earbuds, but also want more battery life, portability, and ruggedness compared to what typical true wireless earphones afford. The in-ear designs completely seal to the ear canal, which ensures excellent isolation. The ANC is a power hungry feature, sapping up to a third of battery life according to Huawei's figures.

Pros
  • Great sound quality
  • Active noise-cancelling
  • Great battery life
Cons
  • Bass-heavy compared to FreeBuds 3i

Huawei's FreeLace Pro headphones have large 14.2mm dynamic drivers. They have an impressive response, particularly at the low end with rich and punchy bass with a subwoofer-esque feeling. Active noise cancelling is the key feature here and is quite rare on neckbuds. Huawei quotes up to 24 hours of battery life with these headphones on a single charge.

Huawei's FreeLace Pro earphones are an update to the FreeLaces launched just over a year ago. They're available in three colors including Graphite Black, Spruce Green and Dawn White. US and Australia release dates and prices are yet to be confirmed, but that works out at around $150 / AU$200. They deliver premium-sounding audio for the price.

The Huawei FreeLace Pro are a solid option for runners or gym goers. They offer decent battery life and a wealth of smart features that differentiate them from the competition. The ANC is powerful enough to drown out the background noise of a road outside my flat’s balcony, which means it should be good enough to cut out distractions in most offices. Mic quality is excellent, even in incredibly windy conditions the person on the other end of the line was able to hear what I was saying and vice versa.

Cons
