The Huawei Freebuds 3 are the Huawei earbuds wireless red, icy white, and black options with features improved than the previous version. It is similar to the AirPods 2 in terms of the overall look of the earbuds as well as the charging case. They possess several similar features also.

The reason for the Huawei freeBuds 3 to gain popularity and become the company’s biggest hit are its features like noise cancellation, the first introduction of open-fit earbuds design by Huawei which is also found in the Apple AirPods Pro, which was the first one of its kind on a global scale.

Even though the charging case is a bit larger than that of AirPods, it does not make it any less portable as it is light and easy to carry. Some of its remarkable features and specs are that it comes in with the world’s first Kirin A1 chip with Bluetooth 5.1 and BLE 5.1 connectivity.

Huawei FreeBuds 4 

Now let us check out the Huawei FreeBuds 4 review, to know about the advanced features and specs that it provides its users and why it is better than others. It is the version with additional features than the Huawei FreeBuds 3 but one must not confuse it with the Huawei FreeBuds 4i.

These earbuds are of the open ear design with active noise cancellation that filters up to 25db of surrounding noise. This comfort and sound quality come with the latest Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity and longer-lasting battery life which outruns the previous models.

In this Huawei FreeBuds 4 review, let us first begin with the product’s overall appeal and appearance. It has a high visual resemblance with the Apple AirPods but the size of the charging case is much smaller and lighter than the FreeBuds 3. This is an add-on as it provides better portability and is easy to carry in pockets or bags.

The connectivity is real quick and as soon as you put it on your ear, a sound would confirm the establishment of the connection. Another cool feature is that these earbuds are sharable, hence you can enjoy using them with your friend as it functions individually also. However, the moment one of the earpods is removed, all the media such as music, videos, etc linked to it on laptops or smartphones pauses.

Huawei’s AI Life app 

Huawei’s AI Life app is an all-in-one application to control every aspect of the Huawei FreeBuds 4. This application will be handy even if you are not a Huawei smartphone user and it is found in the AppGallery store and the Google PlayStore.

Once the application is set, the details like battery percentage of both the left and right earbuds, charging case, a connection centre with all your paired devices, and several other features are provided.  To summarise the Huawei FreeBuds 4 review, the earbuds are definitely on a strong point in terms of touch sensitivity, quick connection, and providing personalized noise cancellation mode suggestions based on the shape of the user’s ear canal.
