Heart-rate and temperature sensor

Anyway, the only difference between FreeBuds Pro 2 Plus and the regular FreeBuds Pro 2 is that this one comes has built-in heart rate and temperature sensors. Huawei claims that these earbuds have the industry’s first dual-type infrared and green light heart rate sensor, which has a 95% accuracy rate in measuring heart rate. You’ll just have to pinch the right earbud to get a reading.

Likewise, Huawei has also used a 3D temperature sensor here that detects the temperature of the ear canal, auricle skin, and ear stems and processes them together with an algorithm to give body temperature readings.


As for the audio quality itself, the FreeBuds Pro 2 Plus comes with an 11mm quad magnet dynamic driver along with a micro-panel tweeter. Huawei says these earbuds have a frequency range from 14Hz to 48kHz. For high-fidelity streaming, it supports LDAC codec, and it’s Hi-Res Audio Wireless and HWA (Hi-Res Wireless Audio) certified as well. There’s also high-definition spatial audio on board.
