Huawei FreeBuds 5i
In the past few years, Huawei has added a variety of products to its earbuds categories. One of them is the FreeBuds 5i launched in June this year.
The ultimate earbuds support dual hybrid noise reduction technology. This helps to detect excessive noise in the surroundings and eliminate it from transferring to your ears. As a result, you experience immersive audio quality without any disturbance.
Besides, FreeBuds 5i packs a large-capacity battery with low power-consuming capabilities. Hence, you can use it for a long time without worrying about the charging aspect. In terms of design, the earbuds appear in an oval compact box in three colors – Ceramic White, Interstellar Black, and Island Blue.
