Headphones are a mid-price segment, they are more than twice cheaper AirPods Pro and even cheaper Samsung Galaxy Buds, which I liked. And, besides, the Samsung has no active threshold. But they have their advantages: small dimensions and bearings and autonomy.
Yes, the case at Huawei Freebuds 3i is not the most compact. By far the two best corps, I believe, the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Pro and AirPods. To the extent they are compact, have wireless charging and a rather large battery inside. Then the case is glossy, just like airpots, and quite large on all fronts. Although there and the ear is not small, but the usability is not affected, but the case to carry in the small pocket of jeans is not so convenient. But not critical, especially considering the price. Can be tolerated 🙂
In the ears 3i look OK and as I said, their sizes do not interfere with daily operation. And it is important they do not fall out during sports activities.
Headphones well as connect to Android devices and the iPhone via Bluetooth. However, to work with them, configure and install updates to install the application AI Life, which is only available for Android. However important you can only configure double-tapping and two-time hold on each ear, no more settings. And update. Therefore, in principle, you can easily purchase them and for iOS devices. By the way, when you open the case on my Huawei P40 Pro window popping up headphones with the status of their charge.
The set is simple: the headphones in the carrying case, charging cable USB Type-C and four pairs of ear cushions of different sizes. They, by the way, almost standard, as in other headphones. They just mount oval. But the Airpods Pro your own, there earpads are much more difficult to lose, but to find new work – will have to buy original.
The strengths of the headphones, what they should consider is the quality of the product, quality noise reduction and of course sound. Here it is all at a decent level and still cheaper than the rest. The quality of the housing here at a high level, though he is entirely made of glossy plastic, but it is Apple and not interfere. Yes, will overwrite with time, well, okay. The hinge is plastic, but holds the cap well and does not allow it to luftig. Hopefully, over time, the cover will not break off, no prerequisites.
Headphones sound surprisingly good. The sound is tight and even bass. I was expecting much more simple sound, and even nice to walk and listen to music, podcasts generally come to cheer while Jogging. Besides, the headphones do not fall out of your ears.
The main drawback – autonomy from one charge headphones will last only up to 3.5 hours. And this is without the inclusion of active noise cancellation, her autonomy will be reduced to 3 hours. The battery capacity of the ear is 37 mAh. In case the battery 410 mAh battery, and it will give another 14.5 hours of playback. To fully charge the earbuds in the case will take about an hour, but the case can be charged via the Type-C, which is good, but not the wireless. A little minus for me, because of all the equipment I only TWS headphones are charging on wireless. Not counting the watch, of course, because their is no other way.
Is it worth buying? I share all TWS headphones into three categories: the bottom of the market, it’s all Realme and Redmi; average, this is just our current model and those Samsung Buds+; and in the top – expensive Sennheiser (still called in Latin I never learned to write), AirPods and Sony. And I can tell you that the budget – they’re only good for their money. But in such. But the middle and top you can even compare and if you are willing to spend more than 50, and about $ 90 for these headphones, FreeBuds 3i is very good. I would choose between them and Samsung Galaxy Buds+, and it is important to understand that you need more. If the sound and shumopodavleniya – Huawei if the autonomy and functionality – the Samsung. But the good news for those who really want Apple AirPods Pro, but doesn’t want to spend so much money – please note on this model, it should make you happy!
