Huawei introduces FreeBuds 6i with better noise cancelling and bass

  • Huawei has a new pair of in-ear wireless earphones as the FreeBuds 6i have been unveiled.
  • The big improvement on this pair is to the active noise cancelling.
  • The FreeBuds 6i has also received Hi-Res Audio Wireless certification.

In recent months Huawei has focused in audio wearable attention of its open-ear designed FreeClip. The slightly experimental earphones have also received a new matte Beige colour option, but for in-ear fans, the company has debuted the FreeBuds 6i too.

These new offerings are the latest in Huawei’s lineup of in-ear models, with it focusing on two specific areas when it comes to improves – noise cancelling and bass.

Regarding the former, Huawei explains that the FreeBuds 6i feature advanced intelligent dynamic active noise cancelling 3.0 (that’s a mouthful). Here it notes that, “real-time model building and an advanced algorithm seamlessly optimise the ANC for 34 different scenarios.”

During its presentation of the device, alongside seven others at its Innovative Product Launch last night in Dubai, Huawei also noted that the active noise cancelling is good for environments with up to 55 decibels of noise, so it is punting these new FreeBuds as an option for those working remotely in noisy areas or travelling on a plane.

As for the punch bass as Huawei describes it, 11mm ultra-magnetic drivers are found in each earpiece, which are capable of reaching the low end of roughly 14Hz.

“They support the LDAC HD audio codec and have earned the Hi-Res Audio Wireless certification,” Huawei added in a release shared with Hypertext.

Lastly, the FreeBuds 6i offer up to 35 hours of playback with active noise cancelling turned off and paired with a fully charged charging case (seen in the images below). The earbuds by themselves can last up to eight hours sans ANC, as well as up to five hours with it turned on.

At the time of writing, like many of the devices showcased last night, no local availability or pricing has been outlined by Huawei. We do, however, know that they are expected to launch locally in Q2 this year.
