Digital music lovers are now moving beyond basic streaming services and are enjoying higher quality streaming that demands higher network speed and lower latency. The rise of audiobooks and podcasts are also shaping the market for earphones, as audio tracks require a level of sound quality for an optimal listening experience. True wireless stereo headset will also become the norm in the 5G era. Huawei will be launching its flagship headset, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3, in South Africa next week. They pick up the human voice efficiently for call quality that feels like a face-to-face conversation and supports active noise cancellation for an immersive music experience. Here’s a sneak peak at the main features of the brand new HUAWEI FreeBuds 3.
Intelligent noise cancelling
Keeping user behaviour in mind, HUAWEI’s FreeBuds 3 is designed to provide active noise cancellation features, even in noisy environments, without compromising on comfort. The earphones use advanced technologies to filter ambient noise, thus blocking environmental interference for a more immersive and high quality music and call experience, even in noisy environments such as malls and restaurants. The noise reduction effect is further complemented by the Open-fit TWS design, which makes the earphones more comfortable to wear.
The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 also use a bone sensor feature that picks up vibrations of the head to better distinguish the user’s voice from background noise, further enhancing call quality by reducing ambient noise. To further improve call quality, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 use an aerodynamically designed wind cancellation microphone duct that reduces wind noise. This patented air tunnel blocks all wind, making the headphones effective to use outdoors.
Ultimate performance with Huawei’s wearable chipset
The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 house the proprietary Kirin A1 chipset, the world’s first Bluetooth 5.1 and Bluetooth Low Energy 5.1 wearable chip designed by Huawei. The chip will ensure a stable and seamless connection to provide an overall enhanced experience, including better anti-interference, lower latency while gaming, a more stable connection and a smoother call experience anytime, anywhere. The chip also brings an immersive high-quality music listening experience, thanks to lower latency and better synchronisation for audio and video. It is designed to provide optimum data sharing between the two earphones, while also greatly reducing power consumption for a longer battery life.
Booming bass for studio-like sound quality
Premium quality music is one of the core focus areas of the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3. To deliver studio-grade music, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 are manufactured with customised acoustic components and innovative architecture developed by Huawei. The components and architecture works together to balance treble, middle and bass, while a custom-designed bass tube reproduces crystal clear details for a music experience like no other.
Based on Huawei’s famed fast-charging technology, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 offer 2W SuperCharge technology. This supports both wired and wireless charging, allowing users to charge up with either a USB Type-C wire or a wireless charger. The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 can also be charged with a HUAWEI smartphone that supports wireless reverse charge, by simply placing the case on the back of the phone.
Utilising the highly efficient power consumption of the Kirin A1 chip, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 are able to provide four hours of playback from a single charge, and a total of 20 hours when used alongside the charging case.
Available in black and white finishes, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 come in a pebble-shaped rounded charging case and are designed to fit comfortably in the user’s pocket or their hands. The case pops open for easy access to the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 earpieces that have an ergonomic rounded curve with a natural open-fit design that ensures a comfortable and stable wearing experience while also housing a hidden power button in the middle of the right side. The ergonomic open-fit design not only fits better but also reduces stuffiness and discomfort, making it easier to wear in all scenarios, be it during your daily commute or while you’re at the office.
The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 will be available from 2 December. RRP is R2,999.
