Huawei FreeBuds 4i will launch in the UK on March 26th for just £ 79.99 (MSRP). This is a surprisingly low price for a pair of wireless earbuds that offer noise cancellation. They can be pre-ordered from March 12th. These are the same headphones that were introduced in China last month.
The Huawei FreeBuds 4i has the stem design like the FreeBuds 3i, but the case design is completely different this time. It comes with 10mm moving coil drivers and Bluetooth v5.2 for connectivity. The headphones support active noise cancellation and dual microphone noise cancellation during a call. You get a touch that allows you to control music, take or reject calls. Long press to toggle between noise canceling, ambient sound transmission and off mode.
Huawei’s wireless earbuds feature two microphones that can accurately pick up human voices. They support low latency for games. There’s also a quick connect feature that connects the earbuds to a previously paired device when the case is opened. The earphones themselves weigh only 5.5 grams each, while the case weighs 36.5 grams.
The Huawei FreeBuds 3i has a 55 mAh battery and a 215 mAh charging case. According to the company, this can take up to 7.5 hours with noise reduction switched on and up to 10 hours with noise reduction switched off. It takes an hour to charge the earbuds in the case, while the case itself takes 90 minutes. They are also promised a battery life of up to four hours on a 10-minute charge.
The oval and compact design of the HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i is inspired by the “world famous black sand beach in Iceland”. In addition to the classic Ceramic White and Carbon Crystal Black, the FreeBuds 4i are also available in a refreshing honey red. Customers who pre-order in the Huawei Store between March 12 and 25 will receive a € 5 discount, a Huawei Band 4 as a gift (redeemed) and free delivery.
