Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value, Active noise cancellation works a tre Ive had these earphones for a little while now and to say i am impressed would be an understatement. The quality they give is incredible. i have tested them out and had my musin blasting and my partner stood next to me could hardly hear a thing. THe noise cancellation works really well and the battery life is really good. One piece of advice that is not obvious would be to download an app calle AI life, this is what you need to control the functionlity of them. you can use tap gestures and each earphone will do a different thing. There is also a really clever trick you can use with the noise cancellation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Ear Buds, space for improvement. I am a huge fan of a Huawei products. I am also a keen user of Bluetooth earphones and use them on a daily basis for music, podcasts and audiobooks. Suffice to say, I was excited and eager to try Huawei’s Free Buds. I’ve got to say the sound quality is good! I mean crisp, clear, punch and has a good natural bass before you’ve even used the equaliser. The Bluetooth range is good and the app which show you the individual charge per earpiece is genius. Pairing the earphones is a doddle and the battery lasts a good time. The case is strange to look at for me, a bit like a small block of cheese in white wax and the logo looks a bit cheap but it’s compact and automatically snaps the earphone in the right direction, to charge them which I find to be a really cook feature with my experience of Bluetooth earphones I’ve also experienced when I go into superstores or past any sliding doors my Bluetooth earphones temporarily cut-out with other brands. That might be radio signal interference, guess what? I don’t have that issue with these! The app lets you re-program the functionality per ear so you can make it pause, rewind, skip etc. You’re in control. So, choose wisely. The challenges I found are the earphones are so light and don’t sit in your ear canal snugly, like some other earphones – you won’t lose them in the gym, but for someone who does a fair bit of running, I fear I might! I also found disappointing that I couldn’t have all the same features and benefits on an Apple phone as I do from an android phone when paired to these ear pods. I’m happy with these pods, if I didn’t have my existing pair from a non-phone company I’d have chosen to continue with Huawei’s version. For now, I’m returning them and looking forward to the next iteration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them I received this product as part of a review program in return for an unbiased review. A very cool looking buds, easy to connect to any device, I tried on my Samsung s9+, apple iPad Pro, Huawei p20 and on my LG smart TV, it had no difficulty connecting. Battery life not bad on full charge it can last up to 4 to 5 hours nonstop, initially I had this fear that I may loose them but I was wrong they stay put in your ears, having the charging pod is very helpful, you can recharge the buds on the go. Noise cancelling option is good but sometimes is annoying as it feels like you are listening music underwater bit stuffed up, you can change next song by taping on the right bud and left bud is for noise cancelling. It would have been good if the whole thing came with a case as the device gets dirty soon, sound quality is the best. Overall I love them and I do recommend them.
