Huawei has launched HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i in the beginning of 2021, allowing more users to enjoy a seamless audio experience. To kick off another amazing half-year, its sliver frost edition is officially available and it is compatible with HarmonyOS, Android and iOS devices and establish a stable Bluetooth connection.
Premium Design with Urtla Comfort
The average use time of TWS earphones continues to rise, making the earphone’s design and comfort increasingly important. Each user’s individual preferences, needs and personality were all considered in the premium design process to create the best TWS earphones for a great experience.
The design of the HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i was inspired by the black sand beaches of Iceland. The waves have washed incessantly over the volcanic rock for millennia, while the rock has stood its ground on an unending mission to guard the shores, sunrise to sunset. Following this design inspiration, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i’s charging case and earbuds adopt a rounded design with smooth edges. Aside from the classic Carbon Black and Ceramic White, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i is available in Red and Silver Frost; these iconic colourways allow users to turn their earphones into a part of their outfits.
For comfort, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i has undergone thousands of rounds of comfort tests, and finally adopted a design that fits the ear canal, delivering a comfortable wearing experience. Moreover, Huawei has reduced the weight of each earbuds. This combined with the 3 sizes of soft silicone ear tips, users can enjoy their music all day.
Superior Noise Cancellation
Active noise cancellation has become an exclusive feature for the pricier earphones in the market, but that is not the case for HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i. The HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i Series aims to deliver high-end features and experience with an affordable price tag.
HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i uses active noise cancellation algorithms to create inverted soundwave to cancel out the environmental noise detected from the microphones. In addition, Huawei’s engineers optimised the algorithm for the most common user scenarios and locations in everyday life, such as transportation, café or shopping mall, delivering a natural and comfortable ANC experience.
Aside from music, another important use of earphones is conducting voice calls. HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i comes with the anti-wind design that can effectively minimise the noise from wind during calls. Together with the neural network AI technology, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i can relieve noise interference for clear calls.
Immersive Audio Experience
TWS earphones are getting smaller, posing a challenge to the audio quality as the components will have to fit within a limited space.
Inside HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i’s compact design is a 10mm large dynamic driver that enables a wider range of amplitudes for punchy bass. The separate rear chamber design also ensures consistency in sound effects and comfortable listening for the user.
The diaphragm is also crucial to the audio quality. For HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i, it adopts a PEEK+PU polymer diaphragm to give the speaker a higher degree of sensitivity and rich dynamic responsiveness to restore the details from the music, together with the professional tuning, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i is tuned for users to enjoy high-quality pop music.
Powerful Battery Life
Battery life is one of the consumer pain points for TWS earphones, affecting their experience of using the earphones. Same as other members from the HUAWEI FreeBuds Series, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i inherits the powerful battery life for a full day music experience.
According to the data from the Huawei laboratory, when Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) is turned off, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i can offer 10 hours of continuous music playback or 6.5 hours of voice call on a full charge. Together with the charging case, it could achieve up to 22 hours of music playback or 14 hours of voice call. In that case, even without the charging case, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i is able to satisfy user’s daily use.
Even if the HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i runs out of battery, there is no need to worry as it features quick charge which could provide 4 hours of music playback with a 10-minute charge. With the battery life and charging technology, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i could continuously provide quality music to users.
HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i offers more than just audio enjoyment, it provides great convenience to improve the overall experience and reduce mistouch.
When playing first person shooting (FPS) games, users sometimes rely on hearing the sound of footsteps to track the enemies down, but if the earphones have significant latency, users could not respond promptly and lead to losing the game. HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i adopts advanced low latency algorithms to minimise the lag between audio and video, allowing users to have a smooth gaming experience.
Many TWS earphone users are still not used to controlling their music by tapping their earphones or they find it difficult to control it precisely. HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i has built-in capacitive touch sensors on both sides of the earbuds, which can accurately determine the user's habits and further improve their degree of sensitivity. The control method is simple and direct, tap twice, users can play/pause music or answer/end calls; long press, users can switch between ANC and Awareness Mode.
When pairing with a Huawei smartphone or tablet, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i supports proximity Bluetooth pairing that user do not need to find the earphone in Bluetooth settings but simply connect through a pop-up window. The HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i is also compatible with both Android and iOS devices and establish a stable Bluetooth connection. For a more convenient experience, HarmonyOS, Android and iOS users can download the HUAWEI AI Life app to adjust settings or perform various control, such as wearing detection, quick control, status query, noise cancellation control, and device management.
HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i inherits the powerful features from the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i, which are simplistic design and comfort, superb active noise cancellation, top-notch audio quality, powerful battery life and smart interaction. With all these amazing features, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i do not come with a hefty price tag, making it the go-to earphones in 2021.
