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

The using convenience of the Huawei FreeBuds Studio is as great as the well balanced and not too bass-heavy noise.
If I were to draw a direct contrast to my Sony earphones, I saw that even after a longer period of using them, my hairline does not harmed. I cant verify both negative experiences; the Huawei FreeBuds Pro are the most comfortable over-the-ears that Ive had the enjoyment of evaluating in a long time.
ANC.
Lets come to an extremely crucial point where Huawei has to convince in view of the cost: active sound cancellation. This allows the earphones to automatically control the strength of the ANC based on the environment. Users of a Huawei smartphone or the App are able to set the ANC Mode by hand.

Final verdict.

When I listen to music at work, it is centred in my head above all sound, which is a fantastic sensation. As I stated, I have actually just evaluated out the earphones in a peaceful environment and not in public. When at work, I did not see the train passing by at all.
Wearer acknowledgment.
What likewise worked exceptionally well in my evaluation is the automatic wearer recognition. When I take them off and continue playing as soon as I put them back on, the earphones stop music playback. After about ten minutes, the earphones likewise switch off instantly – so theres no nasty surprise the next morning when you select up a pair of dead earphones if you forgot to switch it off after work the day previously.

The FreeBuds Studio from Huawei costs a whopping ₤ 299.99. Its my 4th day with the brand-new Huawei earphones (as of November 6, 2020), I have not even had to charge the battery of this pair of cans given 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 higher than the one on aptX – of course, you will only benefit from this if you use a Huawei mobile phone with EMUI 11, which would currently equate to the Mate 40 Pro.
Apart from the lack of support for Huaweis Audio Codec, as an Apple user, I also miss out on 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 earphones geared up with ANC.

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? I utilize it on the Mate 40 Pro to update the software of the headphones and manually figure out the strength of the ANC.
I currently mentioned throughout the FreeBuds Pro review that there need to be an iOS app, and I continue to maintain my stand here. Regrettably, I still cant find it in the App Store.

Huawei FreeBuds Studio release date and price.

On the right, the deep bass melts right into my ideas. Above it lies the electrical guitar with strings that achieve wonderful highs. A bit deeper in my head, I hear the violin sobbing out. Goosebumps appear all over my body, and then the drums announce the beginning of the track: “Life is a waterfall. Were one in a river and one after the fall. Life is a waterfall. We are one in a river and one after the fall.” The Huawei FreeBuds Studio injects System of a Downs “Aerials” directly into my heart. Every instrument in this masterpiece is plainly audible; even the “steps” at the very starting below the violin, which can only be heard on excellent headphones. Huawei utilizes dynamic 40 mm drivers that do their task well and offer a well balanced, clean noise experience. At the exact same time, the bass does not penetrate too hard, and neither is it too aggressive while guaranteeing that it does not hush the beautiful composition of studio tracks, as is the case with numerous other existing earphones.
Battery life.
Its my fourth day with the new Huawei earphones (as of November 6, 2020), I have not even needed to charge the battery of this set of cans considering that the eventful day I took it out of package, and my iPhone shows that it still has a quarter of the battery life left. At this point, the over-the-ear headphones – with active noise cancellation always turned on – have actually been used for group meetings, a night of election madness on CNN, and a minimum of five hours of music enjoyment. I am thrilled with the amount of battery life that this pair brings, throwing a judgmental eye at my faithful buddy, the Sony WH-1000XM3: Well, you merely cant take on that. Huawei themselves promoted battery life of up to 20 hours – I am positive that I will be able to confirm this figure in the coming days at the rate that I am going.

The battery life is exceptional to my older Sony WH-1000XM3. And if the battery runs dry, the earphones can be quickly charged in a jiffy. My ears do not touch the within the padded earcup; at the exact same time, the cushioning is so soft that after a few minutes I no longer feel that the exceptional noise in my head is originating from a pair of earphones.

The touch control works intuitively and exactly the same as with my Sony earphones. All in all, you get an extremely great set of earphones for the cash paid with exceptional battery life. Bravo, Huawei!
