HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro 2: Experience sound in its most authentic, high-fidelity form

With the FreeBuds Pro 2, users can enjoy bright and precise treble and overtones while also having bass that packs a punch. This is due to the ‘Ultra-hearing True Sound Dual Driver’ sound system that gives the FreeBuds Pro 2 a wide range of 14Hz to 48kHz to truly present sound details accurately.
The earbuds leverage the ‘Triple Adaptive EQ’ technology to automatically tune audio according to users’ ear canal structure, posture and volume level to ensure a personalised and high-definition sound experience for everyone, regardless of where and what volume you are playing your music at.
The FreeBuds Pro 2 also supports LDAC™ high-resolution codec and is certified both by HWA and HiRes Audio Wireless, supporting blazing-fast transmission of up to 990 kbps, and transmitting pure highfidelity sound that spares no detail.
Besides top-quality music, the FreeBuds Pro 2 is equipped with ‘Intelligent Dynamic ANC 2.0’ that accurately identifies your ear canal structure, external sound field environment and wearing status, and selects one of the three optimal noise canceling mode in real time.
The exclusive aircraft noise cancellation curve is capable of eliminating roaring aircraft engine noises on flights. Phone calls will also be clear and quiet thanks to the FreeBuds Pro 2’s new Pure Voice call noise cancellation technology and its 4-microphones, it is able to accurately pick up human voices. Its new hidden wind-proof design also effectively reduces wind noises, ensuring excellent call quality even amidst strong winds.

HUAWEI FreeBuds SE: All-rounded earbuds for everyone
The HUAWEI FreeBuds SE is an all-rounded, high quality yet affordable earbuds made for everyone. On top of its excellent sound quality, it also features an ergonomic semi in-ear design which allows for long listening periods at maximum comfort. Encased in a compact but powerful charging case, the fully charged earbuds support six hours of continuous music playback, while the fully-charged case supports with up to 24 hours.4 For voice calls, the fully charged earbuds can be used for four hours of call-time. 4 Every set of earbuds comes with three different sizes of feather-light silicone tips for a comfortable, flexible fit.
The HUAWEI FreeBuds SE’s compact body houses custom acoustic components and a 10mm large dynamic driver which gives it a powerful bass, while the wide sound field delivers a wonderful audio quality. A good quality diaphragm effectively enhances the speaker’s sensitivity and therefore, audio details can be better reproduced. HUAWEI’s FreeBuds SE adopts a PEEK+PU+PET titanium dome, which comes with the high compliance of PU and the toughness of PEEK. At the same time, the titanium dome is able to reproduce every single detail in the music with a powerful bass and bright treble.
Users can take their appreciation for pop music to the next level, as vocals are emphasized within a balanced tri-channel audio framework. The bass is powerful, especially for the drumbeats, which is crisp and impactful. Meanwhile, the treble is soft and flexible, highlighting the melodious instruments. The midrange is also vivid, with vocals that are full and transparent.
HUAWEI FreeBuds SE’s semi-in-ear design effectively eliminates noise, bringing about a quiet listening experience. Together with the environmental noise cancellation (ENC) and dual-mic beamforming technology, the user’s voice is distinguished from ambient noise accurately. This way, audio calls are delivered crystal-clear and users need not find quiet places just to take their calls.
With the new generation of Bluetooth 5.2, the HUAWEI FreeBuds SE has lower power consumption, higher connection stability, faster transmission speed, reduced disconnection and lagging. Connection and usage is smooth regardless of whether it is connected to an Android or iOS device.
For ease of pairing with Huawei phones, the HUAWEI FreeBuds SE’s charging case automatically creates a popup pairing prompt when opened for the first time. Once paired, the FreeBuds and case battery levels are shown on-screen. In addition, nearby compatible Bluetooth devices such as smartphones, PCs, and tablets can also be connected instantly.
With its built-in high-sensitivity G sensor and IR sensor, the HUAWEI FreeBuds automatically detects when the earbuds are taken off and pauses music playback. The dedicated G-sensor ensures touch controls are ultra-precise. Simply double-tap to pause and resume playback, or answer and hang up a call.
