Back at IFA 2019, the Huawei unveiled its flagship TWS earphone, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3. The design of the earphones adopted the complex design of a dolphin’s vocal cavity, providing long lasting comfort and stability. From the earphone to the charging case, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 delivers a streamlined design language.
During Huawei’s HDC 2020 event, the brand announced their new true wireless stereo (TWS) earphones, HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro. From the announcement, we saw that the new HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro adopts a similar yet different design from the previous generations, while also boasting a new iconic look with a wide range of smart features.
The latest HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro takes a different approach in the design for a more iconic and premium look. The earphones’ stem forms a recognisable square geometric shape, which is unlike the rounded tube before. This unique design is very rare among the industry as well. Aside for the design purpose, would the stem design offer more interactions with its shape, provide more control on music playback through the earphone itself?
The HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro also adopts an in-ear design both for wearing comfort and noise cancellation. In-ear design is undoubtedly providing an extra layer of noise cancellation compare to HUAWEI FreeBuds 3, showing Huawei is dedicated to provide an enhanced noise cancellation experience this time. Still, noise cancellation requires both hardware and software to work together, so we could expect Huawei to announce an upgraded or perhaps more intelligent active noise cancellation technology.
The “Pro” in the HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro tells us that Huawei is very confident about this product from every aspect. In that case, there could be an overall upgrade to provide a true “Pro” experience.
The anticipated upgrade is the sound quality. As a pair of TWS earphones, sound quality is crucial to the user experience, but the better the sound quality, the larger the acoustic components are. In order to fit all the components into the tiny earphones, Huawei has to use the top-quality components to balance both sound quality and size.
Also, earphones are one of the most heavily use gadgets for most consumers, so the materials have to be premium and comfortable to delivers a “Pro” wearing experience. Otherwise, users may feel discomfort and sometime pain when wearing the earphones for too long.
Lastly, Huawei often include smart features in their earphones to provide users a connected experience. Will the HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro provide better interaction compare to the last generation? Will there be more personalised feature available on the HUAWEI AI Life app to offer an enhanced user experience?
HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro will be available soon in Saudi Arabia for pre order.
