Over the past few years, many technological developments, from AI to 5G, have shaped the very fabric of technology across all product categories, from smartphones to laptops to headphones. The limits of these technologies are constantly being pushed across the board, with Huawei being one of the leaders spearheading innovation across categories.
One example is Huawei’s earphone innovation. Last year, the company launched their signature audio device, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3. These earphones were the world’s first open-fit true wireless stereo (TWS) with advanced active noise cancelling (ANC) technologies and a variety of other impressive features.
In a bid to continually bring new, game-changing technology to the cluttered earphone market, Huawei recently unveiled their latest addition to their ever-expanding product offering with the affordable HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i, which retails at just R1,999. This new device offers some of the most advanced, yet affordable ANC technologies on the market. While the HUAWEI Freebuds 3i boast an array of incredible features, here are the top three.
1. A connected ecosystem of intelligence
The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i offer a fully integrated ecosystem of seamless interconnectivity between all of your Huawei devices, from your phone to your laptop. As soon as the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i’s charging case is open, a pop-up notification will appear on any of your nearby Huawei devices, enabling you to instantly connect to your earphones for all your audio needs, whether it be taking a phone call or listening to podcasts or chilling to some tunes. A pop-up notification will also inform you when the earphones or charging case’s battery status is low, so that you can enjoy a consistently reliable audio experience.
Truly ushering in an era of intelligent connectivity, The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i are able to intuitively sync with your every move. This is achieved thanks to the device’s built-in capacitive sensors on both sides, meaning that you can revel in quick and easy access to your music library after a long day, with a simple double tap. This also applies to making calls.
Of course, the key focus of the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i is the intelligent noise cancellation features, which can be activated by a simple long-tap on the sensor. Further adding to the device’s intelligent nature, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i are able to intuitively pause any audio when the earphones are removed, and automatically resume as soon as the earphones are placed back in your ears.
2. Achieving serene silence with a great battery life to boot
While many consumers still don’t understand how active noise cancellation works, Huawei has made it simple. The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i house two outward-facing mics and one inward-facing mic, each of which play an integral part in achieving an unparalleled noise cancellation experience. The outward-facing mic detects external ambient noise to actively counter with anti-noise, which neutralises any environmental sounds or frequencies. The inward-facing mic, on the other hand, intelligently detects any noises that emanate from inside your ears, thereby actively lowering all background noise by up to 32dB.
The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i deliver an unobstructed, pleasurable listening experience, with the device’s highly sensitive polymer composite diaphragms being carefully tuned to deliver authentic and balanced audio sounds. These earphones are able to provide up to 3.5 hours of continuous music playback on a single charge. With the battery being housed inside these earphones’ charging case, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i can provide up to 14.5 hours of uptime for everyday use.
3. A fit not only for your ears, but for your style too
The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i are the perfect companion for the stylish South African, and are able to seamlessly complement your own unique style with their atypically designed petite form. The earphones feature ergonomic cone-shaped main bodies, which are optimised with Ceramic White flexible silicon tips for a minimalistic appearance. The conical ear tips will provide you with effortless comfort, which can be attributed to the device’s airtight nature.
