Huawei, it seems, is preparing to introduce the second generation of wireless headphones for Freebuds own presentation, which will take place on October 16.
Judging from the available images, Huawei has decided to depart from its own version of headphones and a case for them, and make a copy of the Apple AirPods. By the way, a review of the first generation Freebuds can be viewed on our channel.
If the first Freebuds was vacuum headphones, and the case assumed their horizontal placement, the second Freebuds fully borrowed Apple’s decision. And in this case it may be a plus for Huawei. Indeed, in vacuum the headphones you certainly get better sound, but to talk to someone, you have to get the earpiece from the ear. With AirPods no such problem. And the case from Huawei loses in convenience to that of Apple’s. In the second generation Freebuds these disadvantages may not be and we will get a great alternative to the AirPods.
And maybe even more improved alternative. It is reported that the new case Freebuds will get wireless charging and, moreover, can be charged from 20 Huawei Mate Pro! Quite an interesting solution and Huawei, apparently, will be the first company on the market implement it.
In addition, it is noted that Freebuds 2 will be equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 and they will support the Protocol Hi-Res Wireless Audio. Total autonomy of headphones will be about 20 hours.
The estimated cost of Huawei Freebuds 2 – €160-180.
