Huawei Unveils HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i with Powerful Battery Life and Active Noise Cancellation

Today, Huawei Consumer Business Group announced its all-new True Wireless Stereo (TWS) earphones, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i, offering powerful battery life, active noise cancellation (ANC), fashionable design, and outstanding audio quality. The HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i is equipped with the superb features from HUAWEI FreeBuds Series, including comfortable ANC, remarkable battery life, and crystal-clear audio, allowing all users to enjoy an unprecedented audio experience.

Last All Day, Music All the Way

Huawei knows battery life is a key consideration for consumers. The HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i adds a large, high energy density battery into the compact frame.

When ANC is turned off, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i offers 10 hours of continuous music playback or 6.5 hours of a voice call. Together with the charging case, it can achieve 22 hours of music playback or 14 hours of a voice call. If the ANC is turned on, it can offer 7.5 hours of continuous music playback and 5.5 hours of voice call[1]. Moreover, the industry-leading quick charge technology provides 4 hours of audio enjoyment from a 10-minute charge. Users do not need to worry about the battery level when they are out and about or in a hurry.

Mini Size, Modern Look

HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i’s oval-shaped and compact design is inspired by the world-famous black sand beach in Iceland. A classic Ceramic White and Carbon Crystal Black are available.

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i’s charging case is designed to fit the arc of the user’s palm, not too big or too small. HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i has undergone thousands of rounds of comfort tests, finally adopting a design that fits the ear canal, greatly improving the long-term wearing comfort.

Huawei designers aimed to introduce a design for active and energetic users, allowing them to listen to life’s beauty while on an adventure. Thanks to Huawei’s advanced audio technology, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i can provide a crystal clear audio experience anytime and anywhere.

Hear What You Want

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i detects ambient noise through its microphones and generates a reverse sound wave to reduce noise. The noise cancellation algorithm targets environments that are typically noisy such as busy shopping centres, loud public transport, a train station, or the office for ANC optimisation, providing users with a comfortable noise cancellation experience.

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i also features an Awareness Mode, allowing users to hear the surroundings without taking the earbuds off. By simply pressing and holding the earbud, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i will automatically switch between Awareness Mode and Active Noise Cancellation Mode.

To reduce environmental noise interference during calls, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i adopts three anti-interference technologies to improve the call quality. Exclusive beamforming technology allows the microphones to pick up the user’s voice accurately; the dual-mic system comes with a slit-duct design to effectively reduce wind noise. The AI noise reduction technology, filters out extra noise.

Balanced Audio Output Designed for Pop Music

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i feature customised components, including 10 mm large dynamic drivers to offer larger amplitude for powerful bass performance. The earphones also adopt the “PEEK+PU” polymer composite diaphragm, which is flexible and powerful, providing high sensitivity and rich, dynamic response, allowing users to hear more details in their music.

HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i is designed to cater to all music needs. The professional tuning team at Huawei has combined different instruments, rhythms, and vocal styles to adjust the audio quality to fit popular music frequency, offering a balanced audio output that is suitable for most users’ daily needs. Together with the noise cancellation, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i allows users to enjoy crystal clear audio, even in noisy environments.

Senses Your Touch Accurately

In addition to the crystal-clear audio experience, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i provides an excellent interactive experience. Users can easily control music playback, voice call, and activate noise with a gesture touch. When using HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i with Huawei smartphones running EMUI 10.0 or above, it supports fast pairing with a pop-up notification that will prompt when the charging case is opened. When pairing, the battery information of the earbuds and the charging case will be displayed clearly.

The announcement of HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i will quench the user’s thirst for TWS earphones. Its comfortable, active noise reduction, pure audio quality, and powerful battery life allow users to fully release their vitality, creativity, and enthusiasm and enjoy a comfortable listening experience anytime, anywhere.
