Huawei FreeBuds 3 Review – Worthy Airpods competitor?



Huawei freebuds 3 review

Headquartered in Shenzhen; Guangdong, Huawei is Chinese multinational company. It provides ICT (information and communication technology) throughout the globe. Despite being in the negative highlights Huawei managed to launch the “FreeBuds 3” as a rival for the “AirPods Pro” of Apple. I know, an open-fit design with ANS? but they surprise you at lengths.

Though the freebuds 3 is a third rival generation by Huawei of Apple AirPods but it is the first one to combine the two remarkable features in one device that is ANC (active noise cancellation) and open fit design that, if being real, we all know where the similarity is “motivated” from. For this innovation, Huawei has not held back in any form and we should give the credit where it is due, team Huawei baffled the audience well. Let’s first see which features does the Huawei FreeBuds 3 offers:


  • Super Comfortable “Open fit” design
  • Built-in Intelligent ANC (active noise cancellation)
  • Intelligent Kirin A1 chip (bluetooth chipset)
  • Bone sensor, clear calling
  • Aerodynamic Mic duct design
  • Wireless Charging
  • Bluetooth 5.1 with Pop-up and pairing for EMUI 10 or above.

Let us now analyze whether Huawei FreeBuds 3 fulfills its promises to the customers or not and is it worth buying?


It is inspired by the dolphin vocal cavity to fit in your ear for stable wearing experience, thus calling them “dolphin bionic” design that delivers sound deep in to ear and debatebly, for some, much more comfortable then the silicon tips ones that are used in Airpods Pro. Huawei Freebuds 3 design is very comparable to the AirPods 2. So, anyone who is accustomed to AirPods would definitely find it unavoidable.

Freebuds 3 are sleek and provide very gentle wearing experience, the grip is fairly good which translates to very cool jogging buddy. Mic tips have the chrome finish giving a very unique look where these are available in two colors only, White and Black. Only thing to consider before buying here is that they come with only one size that cannot be altered with different silicon tips but ti this point, nobody has complained about that so cannot complain as they fit pretty well on all.

These Freebuds give you the same, if not better, experience as the AirPods 2 and as far as the price is concerned, Huawei Freebuds 3 price in Pakistan is PKR 36,999 that seems pretty reasonable considering the much pricey competitors.

Hardware and its Performance:


The buttons on the sides of Huawei FreeBuds 3 are touch controlled but only with double taps, which is good in terms of accidental touches. Playback, pauses when the bud has been taken off and it will resume when put back into the ear. You can also change the functionality of the touch buttons through the application of Huawei AI life App. But by default, the features of right and left Huawei FreeBuds 3 are:

RightPlay, switch music, move to next song after double tap
LeftOn and Off (Intelligent ANS)
Huawei AI Life app

Bluetooth 5.1

Huawei FreeBuds 3 uses Bluetooth 5.1, its connection is absolutely amazing. You can connect the phone with the buds and move freely around the house, the connection will remain strong and no break, stammer or stutter shall be experienced. I even went to the garden outside and the connection was stable.

Bone Sensor Clear Calling

The built-in bone voice sensor claims to work with the Mic Duct for noise cancellation, and offer a clear conversation when conversing on the phone. It literally blocks out wind sounds as well as background noises making possible a very smooth voice even standing in a crowded area. Freebuds 3 can intelligently cancel the environment noise as much as up to 15 dB that when turned on is a magical feeling for focusing in a noisy area. This is worth every penny.

Intelligent Kirin A1 Chip

Huawei FreeBuds 3 are made with Kirin A1 chipset. It is an ultra-low-power processor that brings cutting-edge Bluetooth and bewildering audio via a 14mm dynamic driver. Also:

  • Huawei Dual Channel transmission technology
  • A leading class 356 MHz audio processor
  • The Huawei Free Buds 3 delivers a steady and accurate audio and video synchronization with no audio lag and very little latency. Making gaming experience quite amazing.

Comfort and Fit:

One of the best things regarding the Huawei Freebuds 3 is how easily they fit and stay in your ears weighing 4.5g only. They are good to wear while jogging, workouts. You can comfortably wear them for a long commute or on a couple of long flights without them moving. You will never feel like they will slip out of the ear. If you want to wear them out in the rain, well there is good news for you that they are IPX4 certified i.e. sweat and water resistant.

Pairing Process:

Huawei Freebuds 3 are very easy to pair with your phone, much more easy if you have a Huawei phone with EMUI 10 or above. When first pairing Huawei Free Buds 3, just click on the pop up window to pair. 

  • Subsequent pairing happens automatically. 
  • Enjoy your favorite music instantly. 
  • Requires smartphones running EMUI10 or above

To access all the features of the Huawei Freebuds 3 on other Android smartphones you have to download the Huawei AI life App. This app is not available on the apple store i.e. not for the IOS users.

Sound Quality:

 The most important thing to consider when buying truly wireless earbuds is if they produce good sound and music quality. Huawei freebuds 3 do not disappoint, at all, high-precision, high-sensitivity 14 mm dynamic driver works really well. The rock and metal music sound pretty good in Huawei Freebuds 3, which is quite rare for this type of device. Because it usually requires big ear buds to get that kind of sound and performance.

The bass of the Huawei Freebuds 3 is not quite as good and strong at 100% volume but then, that volume can damage your ears so we don’t recommend that. But at mid-range sound it is quite good to use, even better than the Airpods 2.

Noise Cancellation:

The intelligent active noise cancellation feature, which is quite rare for this type of design made us skeptical at first. AI noise cancellation can easily be customized by the AI life App on different frequencies. ANC will dampen the outside noise, when you are outside, to increase the quality of whatever you are listening to, but not completely remove/cancel the noise.

Huawei freebuds 3 price in Pakistan

Huawei Freebuds 3 do not have that silicon tip, the actual seal that will completely remove the noise. But to our surprise they worked really well in noisy environment. The Freebuds 3 provide a much better experience than it was expected of. It also has a latency of 190ms which makes it perfect for gaming, and the noise cancellation is adjustable using the companion app i.e. Huawei AI life App.

Battery Life:

Huawei Freebuds 3 run 3.5-4 hours when ANS is turned off (can be extended to 20 hours with charging case which also needs a refill) and with ANC on it gives an average of around 3 hours which is not as great when compared to other rivals such as edifier and AirPods.

Huawei Freebuds 3 come with in a round shape charging case with a sleek physical button on the side of it. Charging case has a magnetic connection to buds that makes them not to fall out of the case and has a led light in the case to make you see whether your Huawei Free Buds 3 are charging or not and a light outside the case for the battery life indication.

The case charges through a USB-C port and can also be charged wirelessly. Merely put down the case on the wireless charging mat for rapid wireless charging, or for reverse charging utilize Huawei smartphones which support reverse wireless charging.

Cost Specifications:

Huawei cost really less when compared with AirPods Pro with similar features.

PKR 36,999PKR 50,000
Huawei freebuds review


In the end, Huawei Freebuds 3 are the one to purchase if you are an Android user with budget around PKR 37,000 as they offer very damping ANC (active noise cancellation) which you can’t have from any other Bluetooth earbuds in open style and at such price-point.

Huawei Freebuds 3 have a very good microphone and a noteworthy fit that stays put while similar featured earbuds are prices really higher. I preferred the sound quality of them over Airpods 2 where Huawei also has an edge of ANC over them too.

With that being said, I really hope that they reel out the Huawei Freebuds 4 soon with the silicon tip or some other better innovation in design and quality department. Until then.
