With most smartphones ditching the 3.5 mm jack, companies have also started releasing more wireless listening options to their smartphones. The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 is the perfect wireless earbuds for you since it features the world’s first open-fit design with active noise cancellation that sits comfortably in your ears.

You can argue that other earbuds have the same feature, but when you compare it side-by-side you can clearly see which one is the better device.

But let’s run down the features of the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 – it’s powered by the Kirin A1 chip that houses new innovations and technologies. This translates to improved performance in terms of audio, battery life and of course, noise cancellation. The Kirin A1 and TWC (True Wireless Connection) help the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 get a stable connection along with low latency support.

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3’s open-fit design is also present on Apple’s AirPods 2, but as you know that doesn’t support active noise cancellation. Comparing it with the recently released AirPods Pro, you’re getting active noise cancellation but in an in-ear type of design.

An open-fit design offers a more comfortable way of wearing the earbuds. Since it just sits on your ear, you won’t feel any pressure while wearing it, allowing you to listen for hours without being uncomfortable.

Another thing you’d see on the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 is that it gives you full customization options on how active noise cancelation works using the AI Life app. The AirPods Pro only has two settings: noise cancelation and transparency mode. Additionally, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 is able to deliver a clear sound quality even at a volume 20 percent lower than the AirPods 2 when used in a medium-level noisy environment.

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 uses the microphones embedded inside and collects ambient noise where it will then be processed with a special algorithm to cancel it out. The resulting sound wave eliminates the background noise so you can quietly enjoy your tunes.

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3’s bone sensor also allows the earbuds to pick up vibrations on your head when you talk so it can properly distinguish your voice from background noise. This will translate to reduced background noise and clearer calls, something that’s not possible on the AirPods 2 and Pro.

Even with tasks such as connecting the earbuds to your smartphone, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 is still the fastest. It took 1.93 seconds to connect a HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 to the HUAWEI P30 Pro compared to 3.29 seconds when connecting an iPhone 11 to an AirPods 2.

It utilizes fast charging, giving it an extreme edge compared to the wired charging capabilities of the AirPods 2. While both earbuds have wireless charging support, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 still edges out by offering a faster charging time.

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 also delivers the great sound quality that you can appreciate even more thanks to active noise cancellation. Precisely tuned drivers and customized acoustic components all work to deliver the best balance of mids, treble, and bass.
