Huawei brings FreeBuds 3 to SA

Huawei’s FreeBuds 3, which feature active noise cancellation with a Kirin A1 chip, are launching in South Africa on 2 December.



Huawei is launching its flagship headset, the Huawei FreeBuds 3, in South Africa next week. It supports active noise cancellation for an immersive music experience.

Intelligent noise cancelling 

The FreeBuds 3 earpieces are designed to provide active noise cancellation features, especially in noisy environments, without compromising on comfort. The earphones use advanced technologies to filter ambient noise, thus blocking environmental interference for a more immersive and high quality music and call experience, even in noisy environments such as malls and restaurants. The noise reduction effect is further complemented by the Open-fit TWS design, which Huawei says makes the earphones more comfortable to wear. 

The earphones also use a bone sensor feature that picks up vibrations of the head to better distinguish the user’s voice from background noise, further enhancing call quality by reducing ambient noise. To further improve call quality, they use an aerodynamically designed wind cancellation microphone duct that reduces wind noise. This patented air tunnel blocks all wind, making the headphones effective to use outdoors.

Ultimate performance with Huawei’s wearable chipset

The FreeBuds 3 house the proprietary Kirin A1 chipset, the world’s first Bluetooth 5.1 and Bluetooth Low Energy 5.1 wearable chip. Huawei says the chip can ensure a stable and seamless connection to provide an overall enhanced experience, including better anti-interference, lower latency while gaming, a more stable connection and a smoother call experience. The chip also brings an immersive high-quality music listening experience, thanks to lower latency and better synchronisation for audio and video. It is designed to provide optimum data sharing between the two earphones, while also greatly reducing power consumption for a longer battery life.

Booming bass for studio-like sound quality

To deliver studio-grade music, the FreeBuds 3 are manufactured with customised acoustic components and innovative architecture developed by Huawei. The components and architecture work together to balance treble, middle and bass, while a custom-designed bass tube reproduces crystal clear details.

Long-lasting battery

Based on Huawei’s famed fast-charging technology, the FreeBuds 3 offer 2W SuperCharge technology. This supports both wired and wireless charging, allowing users to charge up with either a USB Type-C wire or a wireless charger. The FreeBuds 3 can also be charged with a Huawei smartphone that supports wireless reverse charge, by placing the case on the back of the phone.

Utilising the highly efficient power consumption of the Kirin A1 chip, Huawei says, the earphones can provide four hours of playback from a single charge, and a total of 20 hours when used alongside the charging case.

Nature-inspired aesthetics

Available in black and white finishes, the FreeBuds 3 come in a pebble-shaped rounded charging case. The case pops open for access to the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 earpieces that have an ergonomic rounded curve with a natural open-fit design.

The Huawei FreeBuds 3 will be available from 2 December for R2,999.
