Huawei has unveiled the new FreeBuds 3i noise-canceling headphones, which although they sound like a variant of the FreeBuds 3 we tested a few months ago, are different in appearance and have some new features to better compete with rivals like the Galaxy Buds Plus and even AirPods Pro, for a more moderate price.
In particular, these headphones offer a three-microphone system to improve audio quality. They have capacitive sensors on both headphones, allowing you to control music and activate noise cancellation through themselves, without having to, than going to the cell phone for nothing.
The company launched the FreeBuds 3i on its website on May 6. The company explains that the headphones have noise cancellation to better listen to your music without interruptions, but also noise cancellation during calls.
If you wonder about its battery, this is possibly the one that stands out the least, since the company indicates that they can last 3.5 hours with music playback, although its box adds 14.5 hours – even so, less than the Galaxy Buds Plus and the AirPods Pro that offer more than 20 hours.
As a point of comparison, the Huawei FreeBuds 3 gave us about 20 hours of music playback, but they are also slightly more expensive, costing $ 199.
