“When I was sitting on the open roadside balcony, putting on headphones, the surroundings suddenly became quiet. Playing music, the traffic on the road has nothing to do with me, and I enjoy my music moment.” This is the intuitive experience that Huawei FreeBuds Studio noise-canceling headphones bring to me.
As Huawei’s first head-mounted noise-cancelling headphones, how do you feel about using Huawei FreeBuds Studio? This article, I just want to chat with you.
Full noise reduction, enjoy quiet and comfortable
The ear-wrapped headphone itself has a certain physical noise reduction effect. Coupled with active noise reduction technology to filter out more noise, products such as Huawei FreeBuds Studio headphones have a higher level of noise reduction performance.
When the deep noise reduction mode is turned on, you can clearly feel that the surrounding low-frequency noise has disappeared when you wear the headphones. As mentioned at the beginning of the article, wearing Huawei FreeBuds Studio headphones on an open roadside balcony can isolate most of the noise. At this time, it can bring a more obvious quiet effect.
But for now, the effect of noise-canceling headphones on low frequencies is more obvious than that on high frequencies, as is the case with Huawei FreeBuds Studio headphones. In the deep noise reduction mode, low-frequency noise basically does not remain. But for some relatively sharp sounds, such as the whistle of passing vehicles, it can still be heard.
But at this time, if you add music playback, basically I can’t hear other ambient sounds. Therefore, the noise reduction of Huawei FreeBuds Studio headphones can be said to be of a very high standard. For most environments, it can bring a quieter experience.
In terms of noise reduction, the difference between Huawei FreeBuds Studio headphones is automatic environmental adaptation. Through the Smart Life App, you can choose its smart dynamic noise reduction. After that, you can let the headphone automatically adjust the noise reduction mode in different environments, and automatically switch between the three noise reduction modes of mild, balanced, and deep.
For example, when I go home and use it at night, I don’t need so deep noise reduction ability. It can automatically judge the changes in ambient noise and adjust it to a mild or balanced noise reduction mode. Compared with many products of the same type in the past, even if there are different noise reduction strengths, it is more convenient to switch the selection manually.
In addition, you can switch the transparent transmission mode through the buttons on the headphone, which is basically used when you need to talk to others. Although the deep noise reduction mode is turned on, people can hear when they are close. But if you turn on the transparent mode, you can hear the voice better, and you can chat with people next to you without taking off the headphone.
Wear gently, cover the ears but don’t oppress
In terms of wearing feeling, Huawei FreeBuds Studio headphones have a softer feeling. The big earmuffs cover the ears, which makes it much more comfortable with the headphones. The soft leather on the earmuffs also has a better skin-friendly feel and is more comfortable to touch.
In addition, on over-ear headphones, covering the entire ear is more likely to produce internal and external ear pressure differences. Therefore, Huawei FreeBuds Studio headphones are equipped with a sound tube structure to balance the pressure difference between inside and outside. So that it will not have a significant sense of pressure when worn.
However, for over-ear headphones, if you take them off after wearing them for a long time, there will still be obvious changes in the ear area. Especially in hot weather, it is easy to sweat. It is more suitable for use in autumn and winter or in an air-conditioned room.
Keep up with the sound quality and immerse yourself in the ocean of music
In addition to noise reduction and wearing feeling, as a headphone, the performance of sound quality is also more important. Huawei FreeBuds Studio headphones are used as wireless Bluetooth headphones, and they are often used with mobile phones. In terms of audio access, it does not retain the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack access, but completely relies on wireless transmission.
Therefore, on the Huawei FreeBuds Studio headphone, through Huawei’s independent research and development of L2HC wireless audio codec technology, with EMUI 11 and above Huawei Mate40 or Huawei P40 series mobile phones, it can solve the problem of audio signal damage during wireless transmission and ensure wireless Audio quality during transmission. There is also a built-in HiFi decoder chip and polymer composite diaphragm to ensure the sound performance of this headphone.
From the subjective listening experience, the sound performance of Huawei FreeBuds Studio headphones gives me a feeling that is very suitable for listening to popular vocal music, and the vocal reproduction and details are better. With noise reduction and earmuff design, the bass has a very full feeling, the high-pitched part will not be covered, and the overall is more resistant to pop music.
For example, 《北国之春》 and 《橄榄树》, the opening instruments are very melodious and comfortable. When the drums sounded, there was a lot of envelopment. When the vocals appear on the stage, they will be slightly forward. The singer’s voice is very clear and delicate, and the magnetic singing voice hits the depths of his mind. I can still hear the fine vibration in the voice, which makes me like it very much. It is especially suitable for me to listen at a lower volume at night and relax at once.
Easy interaction, efficient and smart
In addition to the good performance of noise reduction, sound quality, and wearing, the interactive experience of Huawei FreeBuds Studio headphones adds a lot of selling points to it.
Huawei FreeBuds Studio headphone uses touch-sensitive interaction. On the outer area of the right earmuff, you can control it by tapping or sliding directly up and down. An obvious feeling is that the recognition rate and speed are very good.
The touch area is relatively large and can better recognize different gesture operations. And I also found in use that even if it is connected to other brands of mobile phones, its response is still very fast. This makes it easy for me to switch songs, play, answer the phone, and adjust the volume.
But there is also one thing, it is only equipped with touch interaction on the right side. If you can add it on the left side, it will be more friendly to users who are used to left-handed.
In addition, the wearing sensor function is also very practical in daily life. It can also be switched through the App, but it is more recommended to turn it on. Because this feature is turned on, it can detect whether you take off the headphone or put it on. When it is taken off, it automatically pauses playback and turns off noise reduction to save energy and ensure battery life. After putting it back on within three minutes, it can automatically switch to the previous setting and continue playing. Even if you leave Bluetooth for a short time and disconnect, it is very convenient to wear it back and automatically enter the previous state.
The simultaneous connection and automatic switching of dual devices also makes it more convenient in daily use. Especially when you are listening to music on other devices, if your phone receives an incoming call, you don’t need to disconnect it again. You can directly control the headphone to answer the phone call, ensuring that you don’t miss important call information. These functions are interactive, simple and efficient, and have added a lot of praise to the experience of this headphone.
Huawei FreeBuds Studio turns on smart dynamic noise reduction to listen to songs, which consumes about 8% of the power in one hour. The remaining power can be seen directly in the Huawei Smart Life App. So I don’t have to worry about battery life, not to mention the Type-C interface can be easily charged.
So in terms of overall experience, Huawei FreeBuds Studio gives people a feeling of high-end head-mounted noise reduction headphones. The Dawn Gold color scheme used also brings more metallic texture. With sunlight, it gives me more warmth in autumn and winter. And this color scheme is more refined than the black appearance of many previous headwear.
Excellent noise reduction ability and intelligent scene recognition adjustment, comfortable sound and wearing experience, simple and efficient interactive experience, are all outstanding features of Huawei FreeBuds Studio headphones. Although it is Huawei’s first head-mounted noise-canceling headphone, it still shows a very high standard.
Headphones are not as large as other types of wireless headphones among mass consumers. But even if a few people like it, Huawei still made this excellent product with great care to give these “minorities” more choices, which is also in its sincerity.
