I received these Huawei FreeBuds 3 just on the last day of the lockdown when I went and picked them up from the PR agency of Huawei and grateful to them for giving me a red one to review and use them as my day to day Bluetooth enabled earphones. The first thing I fell in love with these earphones was the packaging Huawei always makes as it felt premium and totally loved the design of the overall structure. As soon as the box was opened I really loved the circular case which really was something unique and easily slips into your pockets without any edges causing any kind of irritation etc. The third thing was the ease with which these earphones gets connected to your smartphones or any Bluetooth enabled device even laptop and tablets. Just plug and play as it connects with the device immediately and if you take them out and put them back the music stops immediately. The fourth one which will definitely bring you to think about these is they have an active noise cancellation feature built into the same and you can adjust the cancellation as per your size of the ears and fitting of the earbuds.
AI Life by Huawei that you can install them to keep you and your earbuds updated and personalize the various touch buttons along with the noise cancellation adjustments. The QR code is supplied when you open the package along with various instruction manuals and warranty cards. I was not able to understand the circular button interface inside the app but as you rotate the same, it adjusts the noise isolation inside the earbuds to create a more controlled environment as per your ear size. Also, the app helps you to update the Huawei FreeBuds3 to the latest firmware and no need of Huawei smartphone like the Huawei FreeLace earphones which only gets updated when you are connected to a Huawei smartphone. The noise cancellation helps you to reduce up to 15dB ambient noise and though the generator volumes will go on as there is no silicon casing kind of setup which can completely isolate the external sound. My first opinion was to go back to the Huawei FreeLace earphones but the convenience to use
Huawei Kirin A1 chipset really enables all these kinds of advanced features in these earbuds. Kirin A1 is an ultra-low-power consuming processor that enables 5.1 Bluetooth connection and using Huawei Isochronous Dual Channel transmission technology and a class-leading 356MHz audio processor the FreeBuds3 brings music clarity like no other earbuds. I was afraid as I dropped each of the earbuds from my height of six feet to the ground in my walks but other than a small dent on the casing nothing has changed so the quality of these earbuds is great.
Huawei Store and comes with a free wireless charger that I didn't receive from the company. There is nothing else I wanted in these earbuds which is not there and these really look great in their design and performance. If you getting them when you are ordering any new Huawei Smartphone do go for the bundled deal as you won't regret your decision later. These are one of the best in the price range for sure. There is always a scope to improve the active noise cancellation as Huawei FreeBuds 3 needs to fight with the Sony's and Apple's of the world in this category of earbuds. RATING 4.5/5
