Plenty of value for not much money
Aside from pumping out smartphones like they’re going out of style, Huawei also has plenty of other products in their roster for its fans to chew on, from watches to sunglasses and other wearables.
If you’re looking to get yourself a great pair of true wireless earbuds but don’t want to drop ridiculous amounts of money for one, then you might want to take a look at Huawei’s FreeBuds 3. Here are 5 reasons why you’d want to cop a pair:
It’s powered by AI smarts
Huawei is infusing virtually every single product it has with AI capabilities, and the FreeBuds 3 is no exception. Powered by the same Kirin A1 processor that’s in its Watch GT 2, the Freebuds 3 leverages machine learning to level up your listening experience.
The Kirin A1 is able to identify frequency bads affected by WiFi and hop to a free channel quickly and intelligently, meaning you won’t have to endure periods of low connectivity ruining your listening experience.
Dual-Band Bluetooth 5.1 makes sure you’re always connected
Aside from AI, the FreeBuds 3 is the world’s first pair of cans that use BT/BLE Dual-mode 5.1 Bluetooth, capable of up to 356MHz frequencies for better audio clarity.
Combined with its AI features, that means that the FreeBuds 3’s Bluetooth connection is incredibly energy efficient, able to transmit signals farther than your typical Bluetooth headset while consuming less power, which results in incredible battery life.
Open fit design allows for maximum comfort without getting in the way
The FreeBuds 3 use an open-fit design, which means you can wear it all day without it causing discomfort.
What’s unique about the FreeBuds 3 is that its design for the part that actually goes in your ear is a little deeper compared to its competitors, delivering better sound without sacrificing comfort.
That’s thanks to its unique “Dolphin Bionic Design” that Huawei implemented to improve sound quality.
And for people who like choices, the FreeBuds 3 can be had in two color options: Ceramic White and Carbon Black.
Its open-fit design also allows some ambient noise in, which is needed when you’re out commuting or when you’re jogging or biking.
Speaking of jogging and biking, you don’t have to worry about the FreeBuds 3 breaking because of sweat – it’s IPX4 rated, which means it’s able to take a few splashes without suffering damage.
It’s one of the first true wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation
If the din of the outside world gets too much for you, you can always activate the FreeBuds 3’s active noise cancellation tech to cut down on the noise.
The ANC capabilities of the FreeBuds 3 is able to lower outside noise down by about 15dB, which is more than enough for most people who want to cut out the ambient noise.
Taking calls are a pleasure with the FreeBuds 3, as it uses a built-in bone voice sensor that picks up your voice through bone vibrations, greatly reducing ambient noise during phone calls.
It has insane battery life and wireless charging capabilities
Huawei’s FreeBuds 3 has one of the longest run times of any true wireless earbuds we’ve tested on the site. Battery endurance for the pair of buds is around 4 hours, and the charging case has enough juice to keep charging it for an additional 3-4 times after that.
That means that the FreeBuds 3 has a potential battery life of over 20 hours on a single charge, which is pretty insane.
Once the battery is exhausted, you can quickly top off the FreeBuds 3 using its USB Type-C charger or take advantage of the wireless charging feature if you don’t want to use a cord.
Huawei’s FreeBuds 3 really gives you quite a lot of value for what you’re paying for. For a mere Php 8,990, you get a solid set of cans that has intelligent wireless connectivity and ANC capabilities, excellent endurance and great sound quality that’s hard to match.
Huawei is running a FreeBuds 3 promotion where you can grab em at a discount (around Php 2,000 off) if you buy a qualifying Huawei phone like the Nova 5T, P30 or P30 Pro, Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro.
