Huawei recently launched the second iteration of its FreeBuds Lipstick just last month. Now, the company is updating other earbuds i.e. Huawei FreeBuds 5i. In this article, we will look at the latest Huawei FreeBuds 6i while also discussing its price in Nepal.

Huawei FreeBuds 6i Overview

Design and Audio

The Huawei FreeBuds 6i looks almost similar to its predecessor. As such they come in an in-ear fit with a stem that features touch controls on the top end. Additionally, these buds are quite resistant to the weather with an IP54 rating. In the meantime, the charging case does not feature any such resistance and comes in an ovular pebble-like form factor. The whole package ships in Purple, White, and Black colour options.

In terms of audio, these earbuds come with an 11mm quad-magnetic dynamic driver offering a frequency between 14Hz to 40KHz. In addition to that, the Huawei FreeBuds 6i is equipped with three mics on each bud. These microphones are utilised to offer Intelligent Dynamic ANC 3.0. On top of that, they also offer environmental noise cancellation with a deep neural network (DNN) algorithm. Moreover, you also get Hi-Res Audio Wireless support along with Dynamic EQ on these earbuds.

Features and Battery

While the Huawei FreeBuds 6i are not high-end earbuds, it does offer some interesting features. Firstly, they offer wireless connectivity with Bluetooth v5.3 and are compatible with smartphones running on Android as well as iOS. Likewise, these buds can connect with up to two devices at once even across the two platforms mentioned earlier. If you have a Huawei phone then you can enjoy the Audio Sharing feature wherein you can connect up two different pair of earbuds simultaneously.

Huawei FreeBuds 6i Use

Talking of the battery, these earbuds pack a 55 mAh cell on each side while the charging case has a larger 510 mAh unit. With this, these wireless buds offer you up to 35 hours of combined and 8 hours of independent playback when the ANC is turned off. The number drops to 20 hours and 5 hours respectively if you decide to turn on the ANC. When the Huawei FreeBuds 6i is emptied of its battery, it can fuel up in about a quarter to two hours via a USB Type-C interface. Additionally, plugging them in for just 10 minutes can offer you up to 4 hours of playback.
