Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
The controls are partly controlled via the physical buttons on the ear cups. Gestures on the right ear cup can be used to answer, reject or end calls. The sound of the FreeBuds Studio is certainly good, but it unfortunately does not sound and feel like High-Res, even though our player supports the required L2HC codec.

Pros
  • Very good sound quality
  • Active noise cancelling
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • Lack of SBC codec support

The FreeBuds Studio offer excellent sound quality with a rich, balanced and spacious profile. They suit a wide range of genres as well as listening to podcasts and the like. There's minimal distortion at high volume levels so sonically, these are solid headphones. The active noise cancelling promises a lot, too, with 'Intelligent Dynamic ANC' Using the ANC button on the left earcup you can quickly cycle between modes.

Huawei FreeBuds Studio are stellar all-rounders. Vocals are consistently clean and crisp, especially female vocals. The surround sound experience and dialogue were clear, balanced and unintrusive. Activating ANC mutes whirs from PC fans, trains and traffic. Connecting to a smartphone is simple enough using Bluetooth 5.2.

The FreeBuds Studio are Huawei’s first wireless noise-cancelling headphones. They’re beautifully built and enjoy a high-quality finish. But intangibles such as timing and musicality are absent. Battery life is somewhat down on the competition, offering 20 hours with ANC on.

Pros
  • Excellent build quality
