Huawei, at the ongoing IFA 2019 event, announced its all-new truly-wireless earphones, the Huawei FreeBuds 3. The earphones come with Huawei’s Kirin A1 chipset, which it announced earlier today alongside its flagship, Kirin 990 SoC. With the Kirin A1 chipset, the FreeBuds 3 are expected to be more stable, have fast and reliable Bluetooth connection, and an accurate audio and video synchronization.
The FreeBuds 3 earphones come with a round charging case that supports USB Type-C and Qi wireless charging. With wireless charging, you can lay the charging case on Qi-certified wireless charging base and juice it up. Coming to the earbuds, at first glance, the design of the FreeBuds 3 looks very-much identical to that of Apple’s AirPods. However, Huawei has a unique name for it, the ‘Dolphin Bionic Design’, which according to it, fits in more comfortably, and has an ergonomic design to offer maximum comfort. The earphones come in two color options: Carbon Black and Ceramic White.
As mentioned above, the Huawei FreeBuds 3 comes with the all-new Kirin A1 processor, which is the world’s first certified BT/BLE dual-mode Bluetooth 5.1 SoC. And it combines with Huawei’s Isochronous Dual Channel transmission technology and a 356 MHz audio processor to help in delivering a stable, fast, and synchronized Bluetooth connection. In addition, the chipset, combined with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), actively assists in eliminating the background noise and allows for uninterrupted and immersive music experience.
The earphones also have a built-in bone voice sensor that allows the earphones to pick up your voice through bone vibrations in a much better way, and enhance it accordingly based on the scenario. Furthermore, to offer better audio quality, the earphones also with a 14mm dynamic driver that offers high precision and sensitivity, and in turn, a better sound.
The Huawei FreeBuds 3 offers intuitive tap controls to make it easier to control your music. For example, double-tap on the right earbud to switch music, on the left earbud to turn ON/OFF ANC function. Additionally, the earbuds also intelligently pause when you take them off your ear, and resume when put back in.
Coming to the most crucial aspect, the battery. The FreeBuds 3 comes with a 30mAh battery (per earbud) and a 410mAh battery for the charging case. In terms of battery life, Huawei claims the earbuds offer up to 4 hours of playback on a single charge, and up to 20 hours, together with the case.
