HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 Review: Use Noise Reduction to Give you a Quiet World

By  Randy Willey 2019-12-26 1593 3

[gearbest Evaluation] Beijing is not only a very prosperous city, but also a very noisy city. I listen to the tapping of the keyboard at work and drag my tired body to listen to the noise of the subway when I get off work. If you meet another disturbing neighbor, it will be even more maddening. It is very difficult to find a moment of peace in this fast-paced city.


Is obviously a more realistic choice than fleeing the city right away for a pair of excellent noise-reducing wireless headphones. The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headset supports active noise reduction. You can not only double-click the left headset to turn on the noise reduction mode, but also adjust the noise reduction gear through the "Smart Life" App. The

HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headset uses Huawei wearable chip Kirin A1 for the first time, providing this headset with efficient and stable connection performance, excellent anti-jamming ability, high-quality music listening and sound-picture synchronization gaming experience. "what? Is the sound and picture out of sync? " "it doesn't exist."

It is precisely because of the advantages of active noise reduction, low delay and high sound quality that the meaning of "Free" of HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 has a deeper meaning in this fast-paced city.

Wearing this headset

As a true wireless Bluetooth headset, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headset still requires some necessary connection steps. When connecting for the first time, first open the lid of the charging box and press the function key for 2 seconds until the blue light in the box flashes; finally, open the Bluetooth interface of the phone and choose HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 connection.

If your Huawei phone is equipped with EMUI10 or above, the phone will automatically pop up a connection window. So if you are a Huawei user with a EMUI10 system, this ear will be more comfortable and fun to use. I will introduce this in the later noise reduction section.

 

To complete the initial connection setting, and then connect the headphones do not have to repeat the above operation, open the lid to complete the headset connection, open the lid is connected, very convenient and fast. So the problem comes at this time, how to use it when it's connected?

On the Bluetooth settings page of your phone, you can see the preset shortcut operation of the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headset, and you can set the operation logic according to your actual needs. The initial default of the headset is to tap the left headset on / off to reduce noise, and tap the right headset to play the next song. 

It is worth noting that the, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headset still retains the previous generation of popular "smart wear detection" and touch functions. The former can pause music and video when you take off your headphones, and you won't miss anything when you need to take off your headphones and talk to people. In addition, thanks to the blessing of Kirin A1, the touch response speed of this generation of headphones is significantly higher than that of the previous generation, and the response is more sensitive. It is worth noting that "smart wear detection" requires the phone to have a built-in EMUI10 system.

 

HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headset can be turned on / off by double-clicking the left headset, or by clicking "active noise reduction" in Huawei Smart Life APP. However, some users may not know the specific touch position of the headphone. in fact, the touch position is located in the position of the noise reduction hole on the headphone handle and a certain range around it.

Generally speaking, the, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headset is quite convenient to use, and there is no additional learning cost for the user in the Bluetooth connection part.

Quiet world at this moment

Active noise reduction is definitely a bright spot of HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headphones.

As far as my personal experience is concerned, the noise reduction effect of, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headphones is very obvious, especially when you are in a noisy environment such as a subway station. It's worth noting that if your Huawei phone happens to be a EMUI10, there are more headphones to play with. 

By adding HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headphones through the "Smart Life" App, you can click on the device to view the current status of the headset, such as the power of the headset and charging box, quick operation, active noise reduction and version update, all using visual operation, which is very convenient. If you are not a EMUI10 system, using this feature requires additional downloads or updates of "Smart Life".

 

In subway stations in "active noise reduction", we can drag the blue dot to adjust the noise reduction gear according to the current actual ambient noise to find the most comfortable noise reduction effect. This function is particularly effective in noisy environments such as subways, shopping malls and roadsides. However, in the office, bedroom and other quieter environment, you can turn off noise reduction. Because these environments themselves are very quiet, the noise reduction effect will not be obvious enough. The noise reduction effect of this headphone makes me feel like a spring. The more noisy the environment is, the more obvious the noise reduction is. In addition, this pair of headphones have a built-in bone voiceprint sensor to pick up the head tissue vibration, so as to better distinguish the wearer's voice from the background noise, enhance the wearer's voice while reducing the ambient noise, and make it easy for you to deal with all kinds of phone calls.

 

It is worth noting that the, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headset uses a semi-open design, which reduces stuffiness, foreign body sensation, and stethoscope effect compared with in-ear, earmuff and press-ear headphones, making the headphones less stressful, more transparent and less cumbersome even if worn for a long time. And the semi-open design also means that even if noise reduction is turned on, the ambient noise can be reduced, but the sirens of cars and the conversation of passers-by can also be heard. To some extent, this design may be safer, especially if you cross the road or someone calls you.

 

Of course, since it is a headset, the basic sound quality should be guaranteed. The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headset has a built-in 14mm large moving ring to balance the sound performance of low, medium and high audio. In addition, Kirin A1 chip integrates a high-performance audio processing unit up to 356MHZ to ensure sound quality.

As far as I am concerned, the music style of, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headphones is balanced, impartial and can take care of low, medium and high audio. However, when I am listening to more elegant and melodious songs such as "Playing Love" and "Perfidia", coupled with the design of headphones attached to the ear canal, the, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headphones perform quite well.

Headphones can still play like this

Now listen to people talk about real wireless headphones will talk about the delay, so what is the delay? Why is it like the shadow of a real wireless headset, following wherever it goes?

Literally, delay refers to the time it takes to transfer from one end of a network to another. For headphones, it is the time difference between the time node that plays the audio and the time node actually heard through the earplugs, that is, the headphone delay. If this time difference is too large, it is easy to cause the problem of out-of-sync between sound and picture. Because of its wireless characteristics, true wireless headphones are more easily affected by external factors than wired headphones.

 

Traditional true wireless headphones are connected through primary and secondary headphones, that is, the main headset receives audio signals from mobile phones and other devices, and then transmitted from the main headset to the secondary headset, this scheme heavily depends on the signal quality of the main headset. This time, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headset uses Huawei's self-developed dual-channel transmission technology, with the left and right headphones capturing audio signals from the phone at the same time with lower latency. Thanks to the integrated anti-jamming unit of Kirin A1, the connection of headphones is smoother and the sound "stutter" is not easy to occur.

 

In order to better verify the delay optimization of HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headphones, "Honor of Kings" is specially selected for testing, which requires real-time interaction. The phone I tested was that Huawei Mate30 Pro, basically pressed the skill button at the same time, the headset side could hear the skill sound effect, almost unaware of the delay.

There is also a special usage scenario for, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headphones. As I said before, two headphones can pick up the music signal from the phone at the same time, so I can give one of the headphones to my girlfriend, and the two people can sit together and listen to the same song.

For real wireless headphones, standby is still very important. After several days of using the, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headset, it can support 4 hours of continuous music playback at full power, which is equivalent to going to work in the afternoon until you get off work. If used with the charging box, you can achieve 20 hours of music battery life.

 

It can be seen in the charging mode that this is a headset that is "exclusive to Huawei users". If your phone belongs to Huawei Mate30 series, Huawei P30 series and other models that support reverse charging, you can charge it backwards with your phone, or you can use Huawei wireless charger to charge it directly. It is worth noting that when charging wirelessly, the logo position of the charging box is up. In addition, there is a Type-C charging interface at the bottom of the charging box, which supports super fast charging.

 

HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headset can definitely meet your commuting needs, if you are a heavy user, with a variety of charging methods, 24-hour music can be uninterrupted.

In the last

It's not easy to find your own "Free" in a cosmopolitan first-tier city, but when you wear HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 wireless headphones, you can at least make your ideal quiet a reality.

As a true wireless headset, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 with a price of 1199 yuan, Kirin A1, low delay, active noise reduction, balanced sound quality and other functions are all impressive, especially the addition of "Smart Life" visual operation, which makes this headset more intimate to use. This kind of experience is enough to support the price.

If you happen to be a user of Huawei's Mate30 series or EMUI10, this headset will undoubtedly be more comfortable to use.
