Huawei FreeBuds Pro is the company’s latest and most advanced truly wireless earbuds. The FreeBuds Pro looks to compete against Apple’s AirPods Pro that it is the namesake of. Let’s check out the specs, features, expected price, and availability of Huawei FreeBuds Pro in Nepal.
Huawei FreeBuds Pro Overview
It was clear that the design of the Huawei FreeBuds 3 was inspired by Apple’s AirPods lineup. With the FreeBuds Pro, Huawei has made it even more apparent. The carrying case sports a design that is almost similar to that of Apple’s AirPods Pro. FreeBuds Pro is available in three color options – Ceramic White, Silver Frost, and Carbon Black.
The steam of the FreeBuds looks distinct because of the rectangular form factor. However, the actual earbuds still borrow some aspect of the Apple AirPods Pro, especially the head portion. It now comes with silicone ear tips that weren’t available with the FreeBuds 3. Thus, we can expect the new dual-ear cavity conduction design on the new FreeBuds Pro to be more comfortable to the ear than its predecessor. Huawei has included three pairs of silicone ear tips in the box for a better fit. It also supports Intelligent Compactness Detection that will recommend the best size that fits your ear.
Drivers and Connectivity
FreeBuds Pro features 11nm ultra-magnetic dynamic drivers. The earbuds are capable of automatically adjusting the sound and timber, based on the signals received by the in-ear earphones. Altogether, the TWS features three mics, out of which two are located on the outside. They are equipped with anti-wind noise cancellation to eliminate wind interference. Huawei has also included a bone voice sensor that detects and strengthens voices by interpreting the bone vibration.
Huawei has not specified the chipset used in the earbuds but says it is Bluetooth 5.2 certified. Coupled with dual Bluetooth antennas, Huawei claims that the FreeBuds Pro is capable of limiting the latency to just 180ms.
ANC and Voice Modes
Huawei claims that FreeBuds Pro is the world’s first earbuds with dynamic noise reduction technology. It claims that dynamic drivers together with the three mic systems can achieve noise canceling effect up to 40dB. If the claims are true, it possesses a serious threat to AirPods Pro and Sony WF-1000XM3. There are three levels of noise cancellation.
It also supports two voice modes – Voice and Awareness mode. The latter tries to replicate’s Apple’s Transparency mode by letting in sound from the surrounding. The added Voice modes make the voices even more prominent by filtering out the noise and only letting-in voices.

The 55mAh battery on the earbuds can last up to 4 hours of continuous playback. Turn off the ANC and it will last up to 7 hours on a single charge. With the 580mAh battery in the power case, the numbers can be scaled up to 30 hours. The charging case can charge the earbuds in 40 minutes. While it takes an hour to fully charge using the 6W charger (without the earbuds), with wireless charging, the charging time of the case doubles
