Huawei is back with the second generation of its premium Freebuds Pro wireless earbuds. The Freebuds Pro 2 are packed with features and offers excellent sound quality. These earphones are co-engineered with French audio company Devialet, a French audio technology company known for its speakers and amplifiers.
We had the chance to test them and read on for our verdict.
Design and Comfort
There are three colourways available: silver frost, ceramic white, and the silver blue reviewed here, which shimmer when they catch the light.
The earphones are made of premium materials and feel great to the touch. They are also very light, weighing only 6.1 grams each. The Freebuds Pro 2 comes with three different sizes of ear tips (S/M/L) to ensure a comfortable and snug fit. The ear tips provided an excellent seal and stayed in my ears even when sweating.
Features & Specifications
Despite the small size, the buds offer more than six hours of audio playback with active noise cancellation off and four hours with noise cancellation active. The case adds another 4-5 charges for a total of 18 hours with noise cancellation on or nearly 30 hours off. Charging is done via USB-C, and the case supports wireless charging, too.
You can control music playback and volume control by swiping or pinching the stems to switch between ANC and ambient modes. There are presets within the app and a custom sound effect feature, which works like an equalizer, allowing you to adjust the levels of different frequency bands manually.
With the FreeBuds Pro 2, you can enjoy bright and precise treble and overtones while also having bass that packs a punch. This is due to the ‘Ultra-hearing True Sound Dual Driver’ sound system that gives the FreeBuds Pro 2 a wide range of 14Hz to 48kHz to truly present sound details accurately. On top of that, the earbuds also use ‘Triple Adaptive EQ’ technology to automatically tune audio according to your ear canal structure, posture and volume level. This ensures a personalised and high-definition sound experience for everyone, regardless of where and at what volume you are playing your music at.
Other irresistible features of the FreeBuds Pro 2 include the exclusive aircraft noise cancellation curve, Pure Voice call noise cancellation and the dual connection feature.
I’m not a huge audiophile, but I have found the Huawei Freebuds Pro 2 to be great. They work as advertised and sound amazing. The blue colour is also a nice change from the normal black or white earbuds you see everywhere. The audio is crisp, there are no latency issues, and it can pair with any device you’ve got – which makes this a perfect gift for just about anyone!
