GREAT NEW STUFF
Wireless earbuds are all the rage, so it should come as no surprise that Huawei has introduced its own wireless buds.
The Freebuds look remarkably similar to Apple’s Airpods, and even offer analogous gesture controls and auto-pause. However, unlike the 5 hour battery life of the Airpods, the Freebuds promise up to 10 hours.
The buds offer a double-tap control to activate the voice assistant, play or pause music, and to answer or end calls.
One of the major complaints with Apple’s Airpods has been that they tend to fall out of some people’s ears. Huawei has addressed this by adding silicone tips to the Freebuds and including additional tips in a variety of sizes in the box. And unlike Airpods, you can get them in white or black.
Freebuds also make use of AAC technology – basically the successor to MP3 – which offers vastly improved sound quality.
Available in black or white, at selected retailers from September. R2 499
