IO – HUAWEI Consumer Business Group (CBG) Indonesia launched its newest wireless earphone on July 13, 2020, namely HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i, along with the launch of the nova 7 cellphone and MatePad tablet. HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i comes equipped with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology and offers an amazing new experience wherever users are, whether they are enjoying music or making calls to friends or loved ones.
Lo Khing Seng, Deputy Country Director of Huawei Consumer Business Group Indonesia, said that Huawei always tries to answer market needs by providing the most advanced innovations, such as the Active Noise Cancellation feature in HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i. “We continue to develop the technology to provide the best experience for consumers. After receiving a positive response to HUAWEI FreeBuds 3, FreeBuds 3i is a successor created for young people who are stylish and dynamic,” he said.
The Active Noise Cancellation feature
HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i is equipped with three microphones; two microphones facing outward and one microphone facing inward. When the Active Noise Cancellation feature is activated, two microphones work to prevent the entry of ambient sounds. The dual-microphone system provides more comprehensive noise cancellation and can reduce noise levels by up to 32 db. An out-facing microphone can actively detect noise in all situations with the anti-noise feature. This microphone is placed in the widest area on the open surface of the earphone so that the Active Noise Cancellation function is not affected by how the user’s earphone is positioned or the user’s ear shape. Another microphone is placed inside the earbud right next to the diaphragm which can ensure the rest of the noise can be captured in the ear canal. With just one touch, users can enjoy this Active Noise Cancellation feature to be able to enjoy optimal audio quality when listening to music, making calls, or watching movies.
The wireless earphone comes with a cone in-ear design with a tip made of soft silicone with four sizes; XS, S, M, and L for comfortable and more stable use. The tip of the cone-shaped earbuds that fit in the ear hole so it is airtight to maximize the Active Noise Cancellation feature and more optimal listening experience. The silicon tip has passed the passive Active Noise Cancellation test by hundreds of people, ensuring the material is skin-friendly and comfortable in the ear hole.
HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i is equipped with a 10 mm driver to produce strong bass, even though it is small in size, it can optimize the noise cancellation in rowdy places, such as airplanes or trains. Each side of HUAWEI FreeBuds weighs only 5.4g and the charging case is 51g. The earphone is placed horizontally inside the charging case to save space, allowing users to carry it comfortably and lightly.
The three microphones create a more optimal noise cancellation and effectively prevent outside sound from entering, and make the speaker sound clearer to improve overall call quality for HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i. Two external microphones are equipped with beamforming technology to take the voice of the call maker in a directional direction and filter out the surrounding sound, resulting in clear sound. The third microphone located on the inside of the earphone can simultaneously take the sound sent through the Eustachian tube. The multi-channel vocal signal will then be fused and transmitted to the other side of the call, ensuring each word is captured and delivered accurately.
Beauty in Simplicity
Available in Carbon Black and Ceramic White variants, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i matches any outfit. Inspired by trendy young people, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i features an elliptical silhouette and is comfortable to hold. The charging case is designed with a flexible, power button located to the right of the port that is easily accessed by the thumb. Indicator lights are available both inside and outside for users to find out the charge level.
In terms of power endurance, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i is perfect for long trips, because it can be used for up to 2.5-3 hours. You can listen to music continuously with FreeBuds 3i for 3.5 hours on a single charge. With the Active Noise Cancellation feature activated, it supports up to 3 hours of game playtime. Including the battery in the charging case, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i can provide up to 14.5 hours of active time for daily use. HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i is a wireless earphone that supports charging using a USB-C cable and supports other power input from various devices, such as power bank and PC, via USB-C.
“We hope that with the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i device, consumers, especially the dynamic young generation, can enjoy the actual Active Noise Cancellation feature and accommodate a user’s daily lives, especially when making calls or listening to songs without being interrupted by sounds from outside,” said Khing Seng.
