The Huawei FreeBuds Pro are by far Huawei’s most advanced fully wireless earbuds. They have active noise cancellation, a multitude of cool gesture-related features, and promise sound quality on par with the best. Its competition is clear: Apple’s AirPods Pro , Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Live and Sony WF-1000XM3 , and it is not exactly a minor competition.
We start talking about the design and the aesthetic section
The true wireless huawei Pro adopt a design similar to that of the AirPods Pro , in that it has a small neck in the lower area and a head located in the upper area. It is not integrated as it is in Apple headphones, but rather attached to the neck. The aesthetic is very striking, and more so with this sober and elegant gloss black finish.
The Right Headphones
Like almost all noise-canceling headphones, the FreeBuds Pro must be inserted into our ear canal to properly isolate us from the outside. For this, these headphones offer us some silicone pads with a pleasant touch and an additional batch of different sizes so that we can use the ones that suit us best. This is important in order to get the best experience, but we will see that the mobile application helps us to do so.
The FreeBuds Pro are really comfortable, even when wearing them for long sessions. They do not move at all when doing sports or sudden movements and it is hardly noticeable that we are wearing them. It is something curious, since each earphone weighs 6.1 grams, but as we say, they feel good in the ear. They are also concealed, something that we personally appreciate, although we must admit that we would have liked the tracks to be less marked in plastic.
- Reviewing what we have on the neck, each earphone has two microphones (one on top and one on the bottom) with an anti-wind tube (that’s why it is open on both sides) to eliminate typical wind noise. Below we have the load pins and just below the head the position sensor. On the front we have the brand’s logo, which looks pretty good, and on the front we have a touch surface for the gesture system.
- We will talk about gestures later, but we will stop for a moment on this surface. It’s in the right position for quick finger gestures, but it’s a bit difficult to get used to . My recommendation: patience. When you get used to doing the gestures and the location of the surface it is extremely comfortable to use, but there is a certain period of learning that must be overcome.
The headphones as such are very comfortable and well finished. The problem, in addition to the one we have commented on the footprints, is that they do not have any type of resistance to water, so be careful when using them in sports in which you sweat a lot or when they get wet. It is a pity, because it would have been the icing on the cake for very round headphones in almost every section.
