Huawei FreeBuds Pro and FreeLace Pro at the top!

Huawei long ago proposed those that were perhaps the first noise canceling headphones that came standard with a smartphone. They were already excellent. With the very compact FreeBuds Pro and the very enduring FreeLace Pro, it touches the best! At a very low price!

Huawei is a little prodigy with its FreeBuds Pro, Bluetooth 5.2 in-ear headphones at 179 francs. Much cheaper than AirPods Pro at 279 francs for a quality and a rendering that seemed superior to me.

Full functionality

The startup, which requires the Huawei AI Life application to benefit from all the settings, is done very quickly. In this small program with a clean look and easy to use, you can choose to reduce ambient noise or not, or even choose a “perception” mode to remain attentive to ambient noise.

Better. Huawei offers four different levels of ambient noise reduction. Besides the “general” mode, the Chinese offers a “cozy” mode, less marked, an “ultra” and finally a dynamic mode which chooses the best option according to the environment. A success.

A specific “shortcuts” menu is dedicated to the functions implemented on the stems of these headphones. Pinching the rod allows you to take a call or pause. A long pinch allows you to change the noise reduction mode or call the assistant. Finally, by sliding your finger along the stems, the volume is increased or reduced.

Huawei FreeBuds Pro: pleasant and efficient

The time comes for the placement in the ears. It is clear that these ultralight headphones fit well in the ears and are comfortable to wear. The silicone tips are well made. Only regret, a relative difficulty in extracting the two tips from their case, but you get used to it.

We are immediately surprised by the good reproduction of the entire sound spectrum. We are also getting closer to the performance of the Sennnheiser Momentum True Wireless 2, the benchmark in my eyes, which may remain a little more precise, especially in the treble.

Audio test: excellent performance

Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised by the naturalness of these headphones, their dynamics, the depth of the bass, not to mention the good performance of the rest of the frequency spectrum. In short, excellent back-up headphones for a very competitive price.

Finally, the quality of the reduction of ambient noise, boosted by artificial intelligence, seemed remarkable to me. Quite different from some models tested here recently with a “revolutionary” design: the combination of powerful algorithms with a successful design works wonders.

In conclusion, we can only be seduced by these Huawei FreeBuds Pro, which deliver between four and seven hours of music with a single charge and up to 30 hours with the recharge offered by the case. The icing on the cake is the simultaneous support in Bluetooth (a pity that the aptx HD is missing) or the LDAC) of two devices.

FreeLace Pro test: the excellence of autonomy

Independent in-ear headphones that fit in both ears don’t just have advantages: they can be lost more easily and if they certainly have a good battery life, the Huawei FreeLace Pro do better, much better!

If their look is a little clumsy, what the grip confirms is that they are very suitable for their use! In silionne, the rather rigid and voluminous neckband gives a good fit to this pair whose two earphones can be glued to each other magnetically; see below!

FreeLace Pro: efficient and practical

The silicone tips are also quite bulky and fit well in the ears. There is excellent reduction of ambient noise and good sound quality, perhaps slightly less dynamic than that of the FreeBuds Pro. Still a very beautiful sound.

In use, the possibility of recharging them on any female USB-C socket, for example on your laptop or smartphone is very practical. And finally, the total autonomy of up to 24 hours after an initial charge of about an hour leaves you wondering for a price of 119 catalog francs. Magnificent.
