Dynamic noise cancellation will be a game changer for TWS?TheBestEarBuds.Com
Huawei just released their FreeBuds Pro which directly competes with Airpods Pro, and upcoming TWS for the top ANC performers.
We compare those two pairs: price, specs, sound quality and ANC performance.
Both have close-design with eartips to seal the sound in, FreeBuds Pro appears with long stem as AirPods Pro but the stem is somewhat thicker and straight and easily to get noticed. Housings and nozzle design is different.
Active Noise Cancellation
FreeBuds Pro’s dynamic NC tech will automatically switch to different levels of NC (Cozy, General, and Ultra mode) depending on the environment but users can manually adjust NC level as well. This helps boost earbuds’ battery life. If you use them in office, the Cozy or General mode probably will be activated, which accounts for reduce the ambient noise 30% and 60% respectively, when operated at full capacity however in office you will still hear the human’s voice chatting. For commuting you can adjust the average volume level say 65% and use the dynamic NC for best listening experience.
AirPods Pro on the other hand won’t adjust the NC level automatically nor have they NC levels, but the NC is still as effective as FreeBuds Pro.
The transparency mode featured in both, with iOS 14 AirPods Pro will be able to enhance vocal quality as FreeBuds Pro – in other words both make quiet voice more edible.
Winner: Huawei FreeBuds Pro
No significant difference between two pairs but the FreeBuds Pro’s high register tends to be a bit more pleasant to listen to.
Which One Is Better?
Huawei proves that their technology with their in-house Kirin chipset developed by HiSilicon take noise cancellation to a whole new level, with almost features and sound are the same as AirPods Pro, if you have Huawei phone such as Huawei P40 Pro you will get the seamless pairing experience as AirPods Pro and finally the price will be the last thing you will consider before weighing between these two pairs.
