Huawei Freebuds 3 Honey Red Experience Review: Semi-open Active Noise Cancellation Love


As more cell phones abandon the 3.5mm headset interface, Bluetooth headset has become the market and consumer’s new favorite, and more and more people choose Bluetooth wireless headset as their daily equipment, and Bluetooth headset is divided into two types, one is the ordinary Bluetooth headset, between the two headphones still have a wire for connection, and the other is a true wireless headset, which allows us to completely eliminate the cable bondage. The latter, which has a more lightweight design and a non-sensory experience, is also gaining popularity and is expected to be the future development trend. Huawei has also been making a significant effort in the last two years in the real wireless headset up and down, and with the launch of this year’s Huawei Mate30 series, Huawei also released a new generation of real wireless headset products in China – HUAWEI FreeBuds 3, it is reported, December 12, honey red new color will also be officially opened for sale.

It is a continuation of the previous product advantages at the same time, more innovative in the semi-ear headphones to join the active noise cancellation function, becoming the industry’s first semi-open active noise cancellation headphones, so how exactly is its experience? Let’s take a look. This time, I also received the new release of the honey red color scheme, which is more beautiful and eye-catching than the classic low-key black and white color scheme, and is also more suitable for girls to choose.

The cavity of FreeBuds 3 adopts the bionic design of dolphin sound cavity, which is more rounded and fits the ear canal better, making it very comfortable to wear and not easy to slip off the ear. The internal cavity design imitates the dolphin’s frontal rung, which can produce a cluster effect on the sound, further improving the efficiency of the sound wave collection and bringing a better sound quality experience.

The case of HUAWEI Freebuds 3 is also very unique, with a round design, with a soft pure round shell and a stainless steel badge design on the shell, which fits very well in the pocket.

Before the wireless headset open cover that connects to many users have been very impressed, this HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 also realized this function, after the first pairing, every time you open the headset box cover, the phone will display a pop-up window and automatically back to connect, and the connection speed is very, only about 2-3 seconds. FreeBuds 3 also has a smart wear detection function, when we have a smart wear detection function, when we have a smart wear detection function, when we have a At the same time, this headset has the function of double-tap to answer phone calls, as well as the new double-tap to hang up the phone function through the version upgrade. HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 is equipped with the Kirin A1 chip, which integrates advanced Bluetooth processing unit, powerful audio processing unit, ultra-low-power application processor, and independent power management unit in a compact size of 4.3mm*4.4mm.

Kirin A1 chip has efficient and stable connection performance, powerful audio processing capability, excellent anti-interference capability, intelligent and natural human-computer interaction, and can provide immersive and high-quality music listening and audio-video synchronized gaming experience.

It employs Huawei’s self-developed dual-channel synchronous transmission technology, which allows two headsets to receive the signal of the left and right channels directly from the phone side and communicate directly with the phone, avoiding interference between the two headsets and consuming less power. Furthermore, the Kirin A1 chip has a unique low latency algorithm, with Mate30 series supporting end-to-end low latency solutions, which can achieve ultra-low latency of 190ms. The low latency may be difficult to feel when listening to music, but it will be more noticeable when playing a game like “Peace Elite,” which requires very high audio latency, as you can hear the sound of gunshots instantly, and you can judge the source of footsteps more quickly to kill the enemy and win.

The anti-interference ability is also very good, in this period of experience, whether in the office, shopping malls, airports, and other places with a lot of signal interference And because everyone’s ear canal structure, wearing posture, and habits differ, the ear canal response varies greatly, making it difficult to adapt to everyone using the standard head mold tuning parameters.

As a result, Huawei summarized and refined 9 major categories of characteristics based on a large number of real people’s ear canals, based on the combination of different ages, gender, ear size, wearing loosening and tightening habits, and so on, and finally generated 9 groups of noise cancellation parameters. After we open the active noise cancellation, you can adjust it within the Smart Life APP, and adjust the appropriate noise reduction gear according to your own situation to achieve the best noise reduction effect. Based on actual experience, in the office scene, the effect is very obvious after opening active noise cancellation, can well shield the surrounding noise, such as the central air conditioning and computer noise, etc., to obtain a very comfortable working environment. Furthermore, in cafes, waiting rooms, airplanes, and other low-noise environments, HUAWEI Freebuds 3 noise cancellation experience is very good, basically can shield most of the noise, allowing us to enjoy the quiet world, and in noisy shopping malls, crowded buses, and other noisy scenes, noise cancellation is also remarkable.

Of course, noise cancellation is not completely shielded from noise, but as a semi-in-ear noise-cancelling headphones, its performance has been very good, and long time to wear nothing uncomfortable feeling. HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 uses a large 14mm dynamic coil, as well as high-strength alloy – aluminum-magnesium alloy PU overhang material of the diaphragm dome, with the superimposed exclusive bass tube, in the limited cavity to In general, the high, mid, and low frequency performance is very good, basically can master a variety of song styles, its bass dive is strong, the treble is clear and not distorted, the midrange is also very clean, in this price point sound quality is still outstanding.

HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 also includes a bone sensor to better distinguish between the wearer’s call sound and background noise, to achieve more accurate human acoustics. Riding can also help you make a clearer call in noisy environments or high winds.

Long-lasting battery life and fast charging support For wireless headphones, we are also concerned about their battery life. Based on my many days of actual experience, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 headphones in full power can play music continuously for about 4 hours, the charging box can provide it with nearly 4 times the full charge, and up to 20 hours of music listening use. You can get about 3 hours of continuous music playback if you enable active noise cancellation.

If you only commute to work, you can go a week without charging. The FreeBuds 3 headphone case supports wired fast charging, which allows for up to 14 hours of music playback in 30 minutes of charging. It also supports wireless super fast charging, using a Qi wireless charging standard compatible charger to achieve wireless fast charging for it, charging 30 minutes to achieve 6 hours of music playback, and you can also use Huawei Mate30 series and other Huawei cell phone phones that support reverse charging function on the outside surface to replenish its power, which is very convenient.

Moving coil unit and bass tube design, sound quality is also very competitive, high, medium, and low frequency performance is very balanced, and it can master all musical styles. The inclusion of active noise cancellation in semi-open headphones is a very bold attempt; it also has excellent performance in low-noise environments, effectively blocking out all noise; the addition of this feature also makes HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 more competitive than other products in the same price range.

At the same time, the new color Honey Red, which went on sale on December 12, is ideal as a Christmas and New Year’s gift for girls.

Unlike traditional in-ear noise cancelling headphones, the HUAWEI Freebuds 3 uses a semi-open design, which is much less airtight to the human ear and leaks sound more significantly. While wearing headphones, the human ear will hear ambient sound that follows the outside world in constant change, and semi-open noise cancellation must account for the processing of this constantly changing ambient sound in the ear. Because different people’s ear canal structure, wearing posture, and habits differ, the ear canal response varies greatly, making it difficult to adapt to all people using standard head model tuning parameters.

As a result, Huawei summarizes and refines 9 categories of features based on a large number of real ear canals, according to different combinations of age, gender, ear size, and wearing habits, and finally generates 9 groups of noise reduction p After we open the active noise cancellation, you can adjust it within the Smart Life APP, and adjust the appropriate noise reduction gear according to your own situation to achieve the best noise reduction effect.

Of course, noise cancellation is not completely noise-cancelling, but as a semi-in-ear noise-cancelling headphones, its performance has been very good, and long time to wear nothing uncomfortable feeling. Excellent sound quality, noise-cancelling calls HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 uses 14mm large dynamic coil, as well as high-strength alloy – aluminum-magnesium alloy PU overhang material diaphragm dome, with the superimposed exclusive bass tube, in the limited

In practice, I used HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 to listen to songs like “The Ferry,” “Songs Not Made for Anyone,” “Hotel California,” “One I Love,” and others. In general, the high, medium, and low frequency performance are very good, and it can basically master a variety of song styles, its bass dive powerful, treble clear without distortion, midrange is also very clean, in this price point sound quality is still outstanding.

Finally, after almost a week of use, the overall impression of HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 is very positive; with the Kirin A1 chip, it has a very stable connection, excellent anti-interference ability, and ultra-low latency; there is no disconnection problem in a variety of environments, but it can also bring a better experience in the game. Moving coil unit and bass tube design, sound quality is also very competitive, high, medium, and low frequency performance is very balanced, and it can master all musical styles.
