Huawei announced a number of new devices at its ‘Seamless AI Life’ product launch event which includes two pairs of wireless earbuds – FreeBuds Pro and FreeLace Pro.
FreeBuds Pro boasts what Huawei calls an “iconic cubic design,” and three colors – Ceramic White, Carbon Black, and Silver Frost.
It uses 11mm dynamic drivers to deliver immersive audio and is the first to offer Dynamic Noise Cancellation, which is a combination of Active and Environmental noise cancellation. It can deliver up to 40dB noise cancellation, outperforming its nearest rivals.
It also features a dynamic equalizer and scenario-based Intelligent ANC which means you’ll get different levels of noise cancellation depending on the environment.
For calls, it’s got a Dual Anti Wind-Noise Design to ensure that your voice comes out clear on the other side, even when it’s windy. Its Dual Antenna design also means you get 360-degree signal coverage. There’s also Natural Awareness Mode, which lets you hear your surroundings without taking the earbuds off.
FreeBuds Pro uses Force Sensors for controls and can connect to two devices at the same concurrently, so you can seamlessly switch between two sources.
As for battery life, you get up to 4.5 hours with ANC ON, up to 7 hours with it OFF, and up to 30 hours with the case. Wireless charging is also supported.
FreeLace Pro, on the other hand, sports a neckband design, and uses 14mm drivers with an Independent Bass Tube and Magnesium-Aluminium Alloys Diaphragm.
It features ANC with a max depth of 40dB (25dB average) and an adaptive 3-mic Call Noise Cancellation with AI Voice Enhancement for superior call quality.
Battery life is rated at 24 hours, with 5 minutes of charging giving you 5 hours of playback. It comes in three colors – Graphite Black, Spruce Green, and Dawn White.

Huawei FreeBuds Pro is priced at 199 Euros, while FreeLace Pro will retail for 119 Euros. Global availability is set for October and September, respectively.
