Huawei adds noise cancellation to the FreeBuds 3
It’s no surprise that Huawei’s FreeBuds look a lot like Apple’s AirPods. Both of these true wireless earphones sport an open-fit design and a slender form factor. However, the FreeBuds 3, announced at IFA 2019, edges out the AirPods with a promise of noise-canceling features and the new Kirin A1 chip.
Most noise-canceling true wireless earphones have in-ear buds with silicon tips. Huawei told The Verge that the new design prioritizes comfort, thus the open-fit design. Although the buds could be mistaken for AirPods when worn, its charging case differs from the AirPods’. Huawei’s charging case is round, and comes in two color: Carbon Black and Ceramic White.
In terms of connectivity, the FreeBuds 3’s A1 chip supports Bluetooth 5.1. These buds are positioned to deliver a stable, fast Bluetooth connection, together with accurate audio and video syncing.
The Active Noise Cancellation feature reduces environment noise. In addition, the chipset eliminates background noise during calls and enhances its user’s voice.
Huawei has yet to announce the price for the new earbuds.
