Appearance & Comfort
The shape of the charging case is very round and compact, and it feels like a crystal clear jade in the hand. It is worth mentioning that the color of Huawei FreeBuds SE is inspired by a natural crystal: amazonite. This stone is also known as the “lucky stone” because it is believed to bring luck and confidence. Integrating natural elements into technological products, classic and modern collide, highlighting the beauty of design.
Huawei FreeBuds SE earbuds use a shallow in-ear design, which I think is a semi-in-ear design. The earbuds have an air-like wearing experience when wearing them, and can have a high level of comfort even when worn for long periods of time. In addition, Huawei FreeBuds SE is also equipped with 3 sizes of liquid silicone eartips, and the flexible material is more skin-friendly. And liquid silicone eartips can also increase the passive noise cancellation performance of earphones to a certain extent.
Connectivity & Battery Life & Calling
Huawei FreeBuds SE uses a Bluetooth 5.2 chip, which not only has low power consumption, but also has better connection stability and faster transmission speed, and can effectively reduce disconnection and jank phenomena. Open the charging case, the phone will automatically pop up a window and enter the bluetooth pairing state, the window can display the power of earbuds and charging case. The most important thing is that whether it is Harmony OS, Android or iOS, as long as it is the mainstream operating system on the market, it can be smoothly connected to this earbuds.
In addition, earbuds also have built-in high-sensitivity infrared sensors. After the phone is successfully connected to the earbuds, wearing the earbuds can sense it in advance and send out a corresponding prompt tone. It also automatically detects and stops audio playback after the earbuds are removed.
Another big advantage of Huawei FreeBuds SE is battery life. Although this earbuds is very small, it is equipped with a large-capacity battery (37mAh), and the addition of a new generation of chips can further effectively control the power consumption of the earbuds, and the battery life has been significantly improved. When the Huawei FreeBuds SE is playing music, the earbuds can play continuously for 6 hours at a time. Used with charging case, the comprehensive battery life can reach 24 hours. In addition, it supports charging for 10 minutes and can play music for 2 hours.
The shallow in-ear design of earbuds can effectively isolate part of the noise and bring a purer listening experience. On this basis, Huawei FreeBuds SE is also equipped with dual-microphone call noise cancellation (ENC). When wearing earbuds for a call, the built-in microphone can accurately calculate the speaker’s orientation and enhance the wearer’s voice through beamforming technology. With the support of the ENC function, even when making calls in a noisy environment, earbuds can automatically reduce various interfering noises in the environment, improve call quality, and achieve clear voice calls in noisy environments.
Sound Quality of Huawei FreeBuds SE
Huawei FreeBuds SE uses a custom sound unit and puts a 10mm dynamic driver into the small earbuds. At the same time, the diaphragm of the dynamic driver unit adopts PEEK+PU+PET dome titanium-coated, which takes into account the high smoothness of PU and the strong toughness of PEEK, which can show more musical details.
Thanks to the high-quality dynamic driver, the sound quality of Huawei FreeBuds SE is also pretty good. When listening to some pop music, I can feel that it has a very good sound field performance. It also has a high degree of sound separation, which makes it possible to bring a very realistic sense of presence and allow the user to accurately perceive the relative position of the sound source. And this earbuds also has very good resolution, the details in the music will not become blurred, and can be clearly presented to the user.
Huawei FreeBuds SE also has a good performance when performing classical music. The earbuds have a high degree of restoration of the tone, and the transient response is very good. In general, Huawei FreeBuds SE has a high degree of tri-frequency balance. The details are also very expressive, and the sound field positioning and timbre restoration are all very good. For its $35 price, this sound quality is already very good.
