Besides the new MateBook laptops, Huawei also introduced its flagship TWS earphones, the FreeBuds Pro 2.
The new Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 features a similar stem design as its predecessor, albeit with more curves so it is less intimidating.
Huawei brags the new model’s dual-speaker design that provides a range from 14Hz to 48kHz that’s said to offer great bass from the quad-magnet dynamic driver and treble from the UHF planar diaphragm driver.
Triple Adaptive EQ was also included that offers the best sound quality based on your ear structure, real-time volume level, and more.
Continuing its partnership with Devialet, the FreeBuds Pro 2 was co-engineered by the French audio tech company to “bring out all the textures and timbres” to any music. It also allows the user to listen to the music how the producers intended them to.
The buds also has support for LDAC, a high-resolution CODEC. It also got a certification for HWA and Hi-Res audio wireless.
Huawei rigged the FreeBuds Pro 2 with 4 microphones for better call and listening noise cancellation. It is paired with Huawei’s own deep neural network algorithm that helps analyze what noise it needs to block.
Intelligent ANC 2.0 was also added that offers three modes for different levels of noise cancellation: Cozy, General, and Ultra.
The FreeBuds Pro 2 pairs to your mobile device using BlueTooth 5.2 and can be configured via the Huawei AI Life mobile app.
For workouts, the buds have an IP54 rating to withstand sweats and water splashes. It can also recognize pinches and swipes for music controls, on/off ANC, volume adjustment, and answer/end calls.
Huawei claims that it could last for up to 30 hours with the charging case, with each bud carrying 6.5 hours of playback at a time. That’s with the ANC off. There’s the USB Type-C port for charging and the 2W Qi standard for wireless top-ups.
The Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 has an SRP of EUR169 (around Php9,700) in Europe and comes in Ceramic White, Silver Frost, and Silver Blue. Release details in markets like the Philippines are yet to be known.
