Huawei has introduced a new pair of truly wireless earbuds named FreeBuds 3i. These are improved versions of the FreeBuds 3 from the last year but are also cheaper than before. The biggest change is in the design which is similar to the Apple AirPods Pro and a new charging case.
The FreeBuds 3i has an in-ear design for a better fit and to further help you get the right comfort, these come with a total of four tips with different sizes. It means even if these buds do not fit you straight out of the box, you can go for other options to see which one suits you perfectly.
These buds boast a 10mm dynamic driver with a 3-mic system for a better audio listening and output experience. Two of the mics are outward-facing and one is inward-facing so that their voice gets recorded easily and is clear to hear for the person on the other side. It also has active noise cancellation to help users listen clearly without getting disturbed by what is happening outside.
The earbuds support 'tap' gestures for playing/pausing music, answer/end calls, and a long-tap for enabling/disabling active noise cancelation. However, volume controls are still not supported by gestures for some reason. The battery capacity is claimed to last for up to 3.5 hours on a single charge. The charging case will deliver a battery life of up to 14.5 hours.
The Huawei FreeBuds 3i has been priced at £90 i.e. about $110 in the United Kingdom. It has been released in Ceramic White and Carbon Black color options. The sales will begin May 20th via Huawei stores followed by availability on other stores from June 17th.
