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

The FreeBuds Studio from Huawei costs a whopping ₤ 299.99. Its my fourth day with the new Huawei headphones (as of November 6, 2020), I have not even had to charge the battery of this pair of cans given that the fateful 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 mobile phone with EMUI 11, which would currently translate to the Mate 40 Pro.
Apart from the absence of assistance for Huaweis Audio Codec, as an Apple user, I likewise miss out on the Huawei AI Life App on the iPhone. With the Huawei FreeBuds Studio, the Chinese business makes a sophisticated entry into the market for high-end over-the-ear earphones equipped with ANC.

No aptX.
The FreeBuds Studio features current Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity and provides the AAC, SBC and L2HC audio codec assistance. An aptX requirement is unfortunately missing out on. However the transfer rate of Huaweis L2HC is greater than the one on aptX – of course, you will only take advantage of this if you utilize a Huawei mobile phone with EMUI 11, which would presently equate to the Mate 40 Pro.
No app for iOS.

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

Using comfort.

The FreeBuds Studio from Huawei costs a massive ₤ 299.99. This places the company in the top-tier cost bracket for this product range. A likewise high price can now be discovered on the Sony WH-1000XM3, Bose 700, or Sennheiser Momentum III, which cost around ₤ 399.99 when they were presented.

Huawei FreeBuds Studio release date and rate.

Apart from the absence of support for Huaweis Audio Codec, as an Apple user, I likewise miss out on out on the Huawei AI Life App on the iPhone. What is so bad about that, you ask? I use it on the Mate 40 Pro to upgrade the software application of the earphones and manually identify the strength of the ANC.
I currently mentioned during the FreeBuds Pro review that there ought to be an iOS app, and I continue to maintain my stand here. I still cant discover it in the App Store.

Final decision.

When I listen to music at work, it is centred in my head above all sound, which is a fantastic feeling. As I said, I have just evaluated out the headphones in a peaceful environment and not in public. When at work, I did not observe the train passing by at all.
Wearer recognition.
What likewise worked exceptionally well in my evaluation is the automated wearer acknowledgment. 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 headphones also turn off automatically – so theres no nasty surprise the next morning when you get a set of dead earphones if you forgot to change it off after work the day before.

On the right, the deep bass melts right into my thoughts. The Huawei FreeBuds Studio injects System of a Downs “Aerials” directly into my heart. Huawei uses dynamic 40 mm drivers that do their job well and provide a balanced, tidy noise experience.
Battery life.
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 set of cans given that the fateful day I took it out of the box, and my iPhone reveals that it still has a quarter of the battery life left. Huawei themselves touted battery life of up to 20 hours – I am positive that I will be able to verify this figure in the coming days at the rate that I am going.

The wearing comfort of the Huawei FreeBuds Studio is as excellent as the balanced and not too bass-heavy noise.
If I were to draw a direct contrast to my Sony earphones, I discovered that even after a longer period of wearing them, my hairline does not harmed. I cant verify both unfavorable experiences; the Huawei FreeBuds Pro are the most comfy over-the-ears that Ive had the satisfaction of reviewing in a long time.
ANC.
Lets pertained to a very crucial point where Huawei has to persuade in view of the price: active noise cancellation. Huawei has actually integrated the “Intelligent Dynamic Active Noise Cancellation” technology from the FreeBuds Pro which Ive evaluated prior to into the over-the-ear design. This enables the headphones to instantly manage the strength of the ANC based on the environment. Users of a Huawei smartphone or the App have the ability to set the ANC Mode manually. Nevertheless, automated control is changed on at the factory. I do not find this to be a problem, however a rather useful relocation. Especially in the house workplace environment, active noise suppression doesnt have actually to be switched on as strongly as when taking a trip on mass transit or when you are at the workplace with associates who are extremely typing away on their mechanical keyboards.

With the Huawei FreeBuds Studio, the Chinese business makes a sophisticated entry into the market for high-end over-the-ear earphones equipped with ANC. And if the battery runs dry, the earphones can be quickly recharged in a jiffy.
