First announced with the launch of the Huawei P30 series, the Huawei FreeLace earphones will be making its debut in Malaysia tomorrow. Charged via USB Type-C, these earphones as its name might suggest, are wireless.
The Huawei Freelace aren’t truly wireless, because there’s a cord that connects both sides of the earphone and you don’t actually have to plug it to your phone. These cords will come in handy by securing the earphones to the back of your neck. The earbuds are magnetic so they will connect/disconnect automatically when attach/detach them.
Huawei claims that the Freelace can last up to 18 hours of music playback with a standby time of 12 days on a single charge. When you need to get it juiced back up, a 5 minute charge will get you going for 4 hours of music playback.
As for connectivity, the Freelace has a HiPair feature where it connects to your Huawei smartphone simply by plugging it into the USB Type-C port. The Huawei Freelace has a 9.2mm dynamic driver, with dual-channel wind noise reduction as well as bluetooth noise cancelling algorithm.
In terms of protection, the Freelace gets an IPX5 dust and water resistance to secure it from the standard wear and tear from well, dust and water.
The Huawei FreeLace will go for RM369 in Malaysia and will come in two colour options – Graphite Black and Amber Sunrise. For those interested, check them out on the Huawei Online Store.
