Huawei’s FreeLace neckbuds are extremely unique. The company is putting a new spin on the term wireless earphones. The design is simple yet ingenious and the earphones can be disconnected from one another, revealing a USB-C plug which can be connected to your Huawei smartphone for easy Bluetooth pairing or charging up the earphones. This does away with the need to carry around a separate charging cable.
The company claims that its FreeLace buds provide up to 18 hours of music or 12 hours of calls on a single full charge. The great thing about them is that they support fast charge and can run for hours with just a few minutes of charge. The design and shape of the earbuds resemble the OnePlus Bullets Wireless. The FreeLace buds feature an IPX5-certified design, has a balanced weight and consists of two elongated modules which house batteries, in-line volume and the usual playback controls. The audio driver contained in each of the buds is 9.2 mm in diameter.
If you’ve been wondering, the earbuds launched along with the Huawei P30 Pro and P30 smartphones. As expected, the earbuds will be automatically paired with devices running on EMUI 9.1. The earphones charge through its USB-C port and will do so on any phone which is capable of outputting the required voltage through the USB-C port. Needless to say, it’s going to work with most modern-day smartphones. The Huawei FreeLace earphones are being sold for €99 (approximately $110/ INR 7,500) in colours which match its new flagship smartphone.
