HUAWEI Freebuds Studio: Unboxing and First Impressions

I am all for sharing, including my music. That is why, I rarely use earphones, or headphones (unless I would be talking for hours over the phone). But things and interests change, and I found myself reaching out to a tangled earphones to help me with my video editing. 

But things will be better with the new HUAWEI FreeBuds Studio. I admit that I have been out of the loop of what is new in the headphones technology (except for bluetooth connectivity and noise-cancelling features of most new headphones), but this HUAWEI FreeBuds Studio has so much to offer that exactly what I needed for my new interests. 


HUAWEI FreeBuds and FreeLace series have been very successful in the audio market, and now comes its first over-ear headphones, the HUAWEI FreeBuds Studio.

Unboxing the HUAWEI FreeBuds Studio

I have to laid it out again in this blog that I love how HUAWEI 's products feel so premium and luxe. The unboxing itself is already an experience.

I asked if I could choose a color but currently the HUAWEI FreeBuds Studio is only available in Black. 


HUAWEI FreeBuds Studio Features and First Impressions

Based on the box it features: 

  • Intelligent Dynamic Active Noise Cancellation
  • High Resolution Audio
  • Awareness Mode

I am excited to try and explore how the new HUAWEI FreeBuds Studio can make a difference in my video editing experience and the output itself. 

Before we get to the technical capabilities of the HUAWEI FreeBuds Studio (coming up on my next blog post), I want to share my first impressions.

The actual headset is light at 260 g. The black color look really sleek, with the metal connecting the headband to the earcups. The insides of earcups are made of soft leather-like material. I am quite worried if this kind would last and won't peel off (which is a common issue with other earphones with the same material). 

The earcups specifically labelled which ones are for left and right ear allowing users to get more familiar with the buttons and features of each earcup.

Here are the HUAWEI FreeBuds Studio Features I am excited about: 

Powerful Noise Cancellation

The simple ear cup hides an excellent acoustic architecture, combined with a large number of chips and sensors, to create a powerful noise cancellation system. That brings you brand-new experience of active
noise cancellation, hear-through and call noise reduction.

8 Microphones System 
(4 Mics on each Earcup!)

You read it right! There are 8 microphones on this headset. 4 microphones for Active Noise Cancellation, and 6 microphones for Calls (2 outward microphones sharing the feature). They cooperate with each other to comprehensively and sensitively detect the ambient sound. The more
accurate capture of sound, the better control of noise reduction.

Innovative TAT (Tee Audio Tube) Acoustic Architecture

The patent design of the TAT can effectively connect the inner ear space, front sound cavity and back sound cavity. That not only blocks the medium and high-frequency noise greatly with a filtering effect, but also balances the air pressure in the ear, bringing a comfortable listening experience.

Active Noise Cancellation

The IMU (Inertial measurement unit) sensor and Kirin A1 chip ROC form a multi-scene perception
system, which can detect the scene changes all the time. This is perfect when you are traveling (airplane or subway), in public spaces like restaurant, or even at home. I hope I can try it out and go outside to test it. 

2 Hear-Through Mode for Communication

There are two modes that I can explore with this feature: Awareness Mode and Voice Mode. 
I will share more about my experience soon. 

High Resolution Audio

With the new generation high-resolution codec - L2HC, ROC supports up to 900kbps transmission rate. This allows audio files to be transferred from the playback device to headphone without damage. Let you hear to the original recording with High-Resolution Audio. 

Dual Antennas for More Stable Connection

It has two antennas that ensure stable bluetooth connectivity even at a long distance. Wow. First time I heard something like this on a headphone. 

It can even connect to two device to allow you to watch movies and take in phone calls. I will have to test this one. 

I am excited to explore its many features that would help me work faster and smarter. 

The HUAWEI FreeBuds Studio can last up to 20 hours on playback and can even function for 5 hours even in just a 10-minute charge time. 

Priced at Php 15,999. 
The HUAWEI FreeBuds Studio is available via Shopee and Huawei Store:
