In the early morning of February 25th, Honor held a global online launch in Barcelona, Spain, and officially launched a series of new products, including the Honor Magic Earbuds. It is worth noting that, Honor Magic Earbuds is actually Honor Flypods 3, which was previously released in China. Honor Magic Earbuds in the appearance of the small figure is almost the size of lipstick, and the functions such as active noise reduction, touch control and other functions are available, and the price is only 129 euros. So is this latest Honor Magic Earbuds worth buying? Please read on!

Honor Magic Earbuds (FlyPods 3) Appearance: Small size, and even ignore its existence

Honor Magic Earbuds (FlyPods 3) as a true wireless Bluetooth headset, it is very small in size. The size of the whole charging box is only the size of a girl's lipstick, no matter it is a coat or pants, it can fit in any pocket. The weight of the whole earbuds and charging box is only 51g, so you don't have to worry about carrying it at all.

In the design of a single earphone, the headset of Honor Magic Earbuds adopts the in-ear design, and the main body of the headphone is shaped like a cone, which fits the outline of the ear and not easy to fall in strong sports.

In addition, the earplugs are available in four sizes, you can choose the right size to wear. What’s more, each earphone weighs only 5g, and it doesn't feel cumbersome to wear on your ear. When you wear it for a long time, you may forget that you are still wearing headphones.

Honor Magic Earbuds (FlyPods 3) Battery Life: 4.5 Hours Music Time

Honor Magic Earbuds uses Type-C interface design, supports fast charging technology, and can be used for nearly an hour and a half in 15 minutes charging. The battery life can be up to 4.5 hours after being fully charged.

Honor Magic Earbuds (FlyPods 3) Sound Quality: Supports Noise-cancelling

The headphones of the Honor FlyPods 3 are very small in size but have this very powerful configuration in such a delicate body.

In the compact fuselage of Honor FlyPods 3, the 10mm large-size moving coil unit is added. Compared with the same generation products, the size of the moving coil unit is almost an order of magnitude ahead. When listening to music, especially when listening to music with a strong sense of rhythm, the effect of bass is more prominent, and in the movies with magnificent scenes, the expressive force of sound effects will also be more shocking.

In addition, the sound quality of Honor Magic Earbuds has been professionally adjusted by Huawei Audio Lab, which is clearer in the common part of the voice, while the music performance will be more solid.

One of the biggest highlights of Honor Magic Earbuds should be the dual active noise reduction function. On each headset of the FlyPods3, there are two noise reduction microphones, the outer microphone captures the ambient noise outside the ear, and the inner noise reduction microphone captures the redundant noise in the ear canal. The combination of the two noise reduction technologies can greatly reduce the interference of noise.

In practice, on the way to commute, the noise reduction effect of Honor FlyPods3 can shield the low-frequency noise of the vehicle to a great extent, such as the roar of the engine, the tire noise and so on.

As for the broadcast station, the situation in which friends are talking can still be heard in noise reduction mode, so that the situation of missing the station without being heard can be avoided.

When I am on a business trip, I think it is most necessary for headphones to reduce noise, because the roar of aircraft engines or the excellent sound of high-speed rail is very harsh for a few hours of the journey. So after wearing Honor FlyPods 3, according to the official statement, the noise reduction effect of headphones can reach-32dB. In my actual experience, when I take the train, I can hardly hear the rumbling noise while driving, and my ears are cleaner.

Even in places like coffee shops and libraries, it is hard to avoid the sound of conversation or other noises, so such a true wireless Bluetooth noise reduction headset brings us a more immersive music experience.

Not only the noise reduction effect is good when wearing, but also the noise reduction effect of Honor FlyPods 3 microphone is very good when talking on the phone. In addition, on the Honor FlyPods 3, each headset has three MEMS microphones. When we are on the phone, we often can't hear each other clearly because of the noise around us, so two of these three microphones pick up your voice outside. The other is to pick up the voice transmitted by the bone on the inside so that the voice can be transmitted more clearly during the call.

Honor Magic Earbuds (FlyPods 3) Usability

As a mobile phone connection, Bluetooth headset, of course, not only carries the function of listening to music and watching movies, it is also the entrance for us to interact with the mobile phone, so in addition to sound quality noise reduction, linkage and control with the mobile phone is also very important.

In terms of connection, Honor Magic Earbuds / FlyPods 3 also supports the function of opening the lid and connecting immediately. Opening the lid close to Huawei or Honor mobile phone, there will be a prompt to connect. After the connection is successful, it will also display the power of the charging box and headphones, which is very convenient. After connecting to the phone, the function of the headset can also be set in the Smart Life APP.

On the Honor Magic Earbuds, a capacitive touch sensing unit is added, which makes the capacitive design and operation more sensitive and avoids the possibility of wearing a hat or hair swinging. By touching both sides of the headset, you can control music playback, answer and hang up the phone, and call a voice assistant. And long press the headset, it is to control the noise reduction on and off. In the intelligent life APP, it can be adjusted according to the mode of operation that you are accustomed to.

In addition, the function of the headset can also be adjusted in the Bluetooth setting, including intelligent wear detection. When we take off the headset, the concert is automatically paused, and when we wear it, it will continue to play, saving the trouble of manual adjustment.


All in all, Honor Magic Earbuds / FlyPods 3 is a big surprise for us. Compared with the high-priced real wireless Bluetooth headset, the price of 129 euros brings us an experience of more than 200 euros, both in terms of sound quality and noise reduction. At the same time, the 4.5-hour battery life of a single headphone, coupled with a battery life of up to 15 hours of the charging box, basically does not have to be recharged for a week if it is used for commuting. In addition, including auto-connecting, touch operation, active noise cancellation, and other functions have also reached a relatively high level in the industry.

As a new entrance for us to interact with mobile phones and smart homes, true wireless Bluetooth headsets will play a bigger role in the future. Such an omnipotent true wireless Bluetooth headset is definitely the best choice for young people who pursue trendy fashion.
