Huawei Freebuds Studio review: Huawei’s first over-ear headphones

Last decision.

Using comfort.

No aptX.
The FreeBuds Studio comes with existing Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity and provides the AAC, SBC and L2HC audio codec assistance. An aptX standard is sadly missing. But the transfer rate of Huaweis L2HC is greater than the one on aptX – naturally, you will just take advantage of this if you utilize a Huawei smart device with EMUI 11, which would presently equate to the Mate 40 Pro.
No app for iOS.

The FreeBuds Studio from Huawei costs a whopping ₤ 299.99. Its my 4th day with the new Huawei earphones (as of November 6, 2020), I have not even had to charge the battery of this pair of cans considering that the eventful day I took it out of the box, and my iPhone shows that it still has a quarter of the battery life left. The transfer rate of Huaweis L2HC is greater than the one on aptX – of course, you will just benefit from this if you use a Huawei smartphone with EMUI 11, which would currently translate to the Mate 40 Pro.
Apart from the lack of assistance for Huaweis Audio Codec, as an Apple user, I also miss out on the Huawei AI Life App on the iPhone. With the Huawei FreeBuds Studio, the Chinese company makes a classy entry into the market for high-end over-the-ear headphones equipped with ANC.

Huawei FreeBuds Studio release date and price.

Apart from the lack of support for Huaweis Audio Codec, as an Apple user, I likewise lose out on the Huawei AI Life App on the iPhone. What is so bad about that, you ask? For instance, I utilize it on the Mate 40 Pro to update the software application of the earphones and manually figure out the strength of the ANC.
I currently pointed out during the FreeBuds Pro evaluation that there need to be an iOS app, and I continue to maintain my stand here. I still cant discover it in the App Store.

When I listen to music at work, it is centred in my head above all noise, which is an excellent sensation. As I said, I have only evaluated out the headphones in a quiet environment and not in public. When at work, I did not discover the train death by at all.
Wearer acknowledgment.
What likewise worked extremely well in my evaluation is the automated user recognition. The headphones stop music playback when I take them off and continue playing as quickly as I put them back on. After about ten minutes, the headphones also turn off instantly – so theres no nasty surprise the next early morning when you get a pair of dead earphones if you forgot to switch it off after work the day in the past.

The touch control works intuitively and precisely the very same as with my Sony earphones. All in all, you get an extremely good pair of headphones for the cash paid with outstanding battery life. Bravo, Huawei!

With the Huawei FreeBuds Studio, the Chinese company makes a classy entry into the marketplace for high-end over-the-ear headphones geared up with ANC. The battery life transcends to my older Sony WH-1000XM3. And if the battery runs dry, the headphones can be quickly recharged in a jiffy. My ears do not touch the within the cushioned earcup; at the same time, the padding is so soft that after a couple of minutes I no longer feel that the outstanding noise in my head is originating from a set of headphones.

What I dont like about the Huawei FreeBuds Studio …

The using convenience of the Huawei FreeBuds Studio is as good as the well balanced and not too bass-heavy noise.
The headphones are padded on the top of the head and have very soft, fluffy pads on the earcups, which shield your ears well and are really comfortable to the touch. It is so comfy that after a few seconds of wearing it, I forget that I am wearing any earphones at all – just the stunning noise stays. If I were to draw a direct contrast to my Sony headphones, I discovered that even after a longer period of wearing them, my hairline does not hurt. I did check out up on other tests on the Internet, where a male tester explained the exact opposite: a painful hairline and direct skin contact with the ears. I cant verify both unfavorable experiences; the Huawei FreeBuds Pro are the most comfy over-the-ears that Ive had the pleasure of evaluating in a long time.
ANC.
Lets come to a really crucial point where Huawei has to persuade in view of the rate: active sound cancellation. This enables the earphones to instantly manage the strength of the ANC based on the environment. Users of a Huawei mobile phone or the App are able to set the ANC Mode manually.

On the right, the deep bass melts right into my thoughts. The Huawei FreeBuds Studio injects System of a Downs “Aerials” straight into my heart. Huawei utilizes dynamic 40 mm drivers that do their task well and provide a balanced, tidy noise experience.
Battery life.
Its my fourth day with the new Huawei headphones (since November 6, 2020), I havent even needed to charge the battery of this pair of cans given that the eventful day I took it out of the box, and my iPhone reveals that it still has a quarter of the battery life left. At this point, the over-the-ear headphones – with active sound cancellation constantly switched on – have actually been utilized for group meetings, a night of election insanity on CNN, and at least five hours of music enjoyment. I am thrilled with the quantity of battery life that this pair carries, throwing a judgmental eye at my loyal companion, the Sony WH-1000XM3: Well, you merely cant compete with that. Huawei themselves touted battery life of as much as 20 hours – I am positive that I will be able to validate this figure in the coming days at the rate that I am going.
