During the Huawei P30 Series Launch event, Huawei unveiled the Huawei FreeLace, a new exquisitely designed wireless earphones that offer intelligent connectivity, powerful audio and long battery life. Supporting HUAWEI HiPair, HUAWEI FreeLace can easily be paired with and fast charged by HUAWEI smartphones intuitively - by simply plugging into the device.
The Huawei FreeLace is made of memory metal wrapped in liquid silicon which offers a decorative appearance and feels soft and skin-friendly. Huawei FreeLace addresses many of the issues that consumers have voiced - complicated first time Bluetooth pairing, poor sound quality and insufficient battery life.
Pairing Huawei FreeLace with a Huawei smartphone is easier and more intuitive than any other wireless earphones. Separating the right earbud and its cable from the volume buttons reveals a USB Type-C connector, which can be inserted into the USB-C port of any Huawei smartphone running EMUI 9.1 for quick and easy Bluetooth pairing via Huawei HiPair.
Huawei FreeLace can also be plugged into the USB-C port of any smartphone, tablet or PC for quick charging - a five-minute charge gives the earphones up to four hours of playback time. Huawei FreeLace supports up to 18 hours of playback or 13 hours of talk time on a single charge.
To address the sound quality, Huawei placed large dynamic driver units with a diameter of 9.2mm inside each of the speakers. Comprising an ultra-thin TPU diaphragm and titanium plating, the drivers deliver a punchy bass and smooth treble. The microphone module incorporates a dual-cavity design which, unlike the microphones in traditional earphones, features an additional channel for air ventilation, greatly reducing the effect of wind on voice pick-up.
For better ease of use, the Huawei FreeLace comes with a range of features that help deliver the best user experience. Magnetic Switch improves portability of the earphones, while its built-in Hall sensor makes control more intuitive than ever - connect both sides and the earphones go into sleep mode, and they will automatically resume once separated. The in-line controls support not only volume adjustments, but also additional inputs such as a two-second long press that activates the voice assistant, and a double-tap that skips the current music.
Launching in Graphite Black, Amber Sunrise, Emerald Green and Moonlight Silver, the Huawei FreeLace will be available in selected countries starting April 11 and will be priced at EUR99 which is approximately MYR454. No word yet from Huawei Malaysia on a local release or pricing, but do stay tuned to Stuff Asia for new announcements regarding the Huawei FreeLace.
