HUAWEI FreeLace VS Beats X: Which is Better?

HUAWEI FreeLace VS Beats X: Which is Better?

By  Cosme Bysshe 2019-12-27 2782 28

On April 11, Huawei held the "2019 Huawei Spring New Product launch ceremony" at the Shanghai Oriental Sports Center, at which it unveiled HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headphones. after the launch of the Huawei FreeLace, there was a voice on the Internet, that is, whether to buy HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headphones or Beats X? To answer questions, Gearbest uses some tests and subjective feelings to see who is more worth buying.

 

HUAWEI FreeLace VS Beats X: Appearance and wearing

HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headphones and BeatsX are collar headphones, Xiaobian's two headphones are black, similar designs also make many new acquaintances confused about the two headphones. But if you take a closer look, there are still many differences between the two. First of all, the HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headset uses a symmetrical cavity design, with the battery and the wire control symmetrically separated on both sides, which can maintain the balance of the center of gravity and make the wear more stable. Beats X places the wire control on the left.

 

Material, HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headphone cavity is made of aluminum alloy, the surface is anodized to prevent sweat erosion. There is no official introduction to the cavity material of BeatsX, but according to the texture, it should be made of polyester fiber. The HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headset collar cable uses Ni-Ti alloy memory metal inside and liquid silicone wrapped on the outside, which brings reliable protection while having the touch of baby skin. Length comparison of

 

Beats X uses a unique Flex-Form headphone cable design, which is also wrapped in silicone, which makes the BeatsX easy to fold and carry in your pocket. After the editor measured that the weight of, HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headphones is 27 grams, and the weight of BeatsX is about 20 grams, the two headphones will not cause pressure on the neck for a long time, and can be easily put into the pocket.

 

In the actual wear, the editor did not feel the stethoscope effect of HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headphones, but felt the stethoscope effect in BeatsX. In addition to the stethoscope effect, there is something wrong with the radio of the BeatsX in the subway or outdoor environment, so that the other person can't hear what you're saying during the call. And the outdoor wind is too noisy so that you can not hear what the other side is saying. Of course, the editor only hopes that the BeatsX he uses is just an example! The wearing effect of

But there is no such annoyance when using HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headphones. This is because HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headphones adopt a dual-channel anti-wind noise structure design. Through the dual-channel open design, excessive strong wind is discharged directly out of the cavity from another channel, which will not cause air eddies, significantly reduce wind noise, coupled with reasonable microphone position design, and cooperate with Bluetooth call noise reduction algorithm. The quality of the call has been greatly improved.

 

HUAWEI FreeLace VS Beats X: Pairing

How many steps does it take to connect a Bluetooth headset to a mobile phone? Once upon a time, we needed to turn on Bluetooth, then put the headset into pairing mode, and search for the headset before binding the headset to complete the connection. Now Huawei and Apple have brought us a more convenient solution. HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headset original HiPair interface, built-in Type-C connector. After turning on the Bluetooth of the phone, the headset is plugged directly into the phone, and the phone will actively pop up the Bluetooth connection window, which only takes one step to complete the initial Bluetooth pairing. BeatsX built-in W1 chip, when connecting with the iPhone, first turn on Bluetooth, and then press the boot button for 1 second, then the iPhone will appear the headset connection window, click the headset to complete the connection, the specific connection method can be seen in the following picture. One thing to pay attention to when connecting

HUAWEI HiPair Flash currently supports some Huawei models of EMUI9.1 and above, and requires HOTA upgrades. However, the above connection method of BeatsX only supports iOS version 10 or later iOS system. If your phone or tablet is not upgraded to iOS 10, then connect honestly with the traditional method. Comparison of

Huawei and Apple have adapted their headphones and can directly check the power of the BeatsX in the iPhone interface. There is also a relevant power display interface in Huawei mobile phones. What about other cell phone connections? Uh. It still needs more tedious operation. And the editor also found an adaptation problem, that is, after the two headphones are connected to the Samsung S10, the, HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headset can display the percentage of power of the headset, while BeatsX cannot see the power of the headset.

 

And the HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headset will pop up a low battery reminder in the phone when the battery is used to 10%, while BeatsX will not tell you that I am out of power. So in the process of using, if you encounter the situation that the HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headset has no power, just plug the headset into the phone to charge, and when the BeatsX, has no power, use it as an accessory.

So what is the stability of the connection between these two phones? HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headset has built-in 28nm technology low-power Bluetooth chip. Compared with 40nm Bluetooth chip, it can not only improve the stability of connection, but also effectively save power consumption during non-working hours. When used in conjunction with the Huawei P30 series, the P30 series can intelligently monitor the Bluetooth transmission power needed in real time. When the connection performance needs to be enhanced, the Bluetooth transmit power is enhanced by borrowing the Wi-Fi channel to ensure high quality audio at all times. In the process of use, Huawei P30 series can also provide users with intelligent beautiful sound function while ensuring a stable connection, realizing one-click modification of tone and rhythm with the blessing of AI modification and ASR technology. The W1 chip is built into the

 

BeatsX, which can simplify the connection and pairing of the Bluetooth headset. At the same time, it can upload the pairing information to the iCloud, to make the Bluetooth headset switch between devices and become more smooth. In addition, the W1 chip can support a stable connection. Apple says that after using the W1 chip, there will be no discontinuity of ordinary Bluetooth headphones and can provide excellent sound quality. Of course, in the actual use process, the connectivity of the two headphones can be satisfactory. However, Huawei can provide more functions while maintaining a high-quality connection, and I am more satisfied with the HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headphones.

 HUAWEI FreeLace VS Beats X: Sound quality and battery life

The HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headset uses 9.2mm ultra-thin TPU diaphragm and has a balanced triple frequency. When listening to the Ferry, the low drumbeat has a full sense of strength, coupled with Cai Qin's elegant voice, has a very pure sense of human voice. The live version of "Hotel California" can clearly distinguish the sound of the band from the cheers of the live applause, with a sufficient sense of space.

 

BeatsX is naturally the same as always Beats style, low frequency is large and heavy, at first listen will make people feel shocked, but after listening for a long time will feel sensational. Excessive low frequency masks the sound of intermediate frequency and high frequency, and the three frequencies are scattered, which makes the hierarchy and details of the song become very blurred. If you often listen to dry songs like radio or hip-hop, then BeatsX may be very effective, and if you listen to very "omnivorous", HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headphones can better meet your daily needs.

In terms of battery life, the, HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headset has a built-in 120mAh capacity battery, which can play music continuously for 18 hours after being fully charged. BeatsX can provide users with up to 8 hours of battery life. In response, the editor connected two fully charged headphones to Huawei P30 Pro and iPhone 7 respectively, turned on NetEase Yun Music selection "Ferry" and adjusted the volume to the highest level. An hour later, the HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headset still had 90% power, and the BeatsX still had 83% left. According to this power consumption, adjust the volume to the appropriate volume, and the battery life is in line with the official propaganda.

 
BeatsX battery life time

Charging aspect, HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headset uses 3C high-efficiency lithium battery, charging rate is 3 times that of ordinary lithium battery, charging 5 minutes, music can be played continuously for 4 hours. BeatsX uses Fast Fuel technology, when the power is low, charging for 5 minutes can continue to play for 2 hours. The editor uses up the battery of the two headphones, then uses the mobile phone to charge the HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headset, and uses 5V1A's Apple's own charger to charge the BeatsX. It takes an hour to fill a phone with a HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headset and 45 minutes to fill a BeatsX. This is because the reverse charging power of the phone is certainly not as stable as the charger, and the battery life of the HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headset is 10 hours longer than that of the BeatsX, so it is expected to be 15 minutes slower.

Conclusion:

If you are a staunch Apple bucket user, then there is no other reason, just choose BeatsX. If you are a Android user or have only one iPhone, the editor suggests that you should choose HUAWEI FreeLace wireless headphones. You can buy headphones with longer battery life, charging on your phone, and more adaptable than BeatsX headphones for 499 yuan. Of course, if you don't need money like an editor, buy both.
