As you well know, we were in Paris witnessing the launch of Huawei's new P30 Series, as well as a series of sound developments with which the Chinese firm intends to dazzle us. One of those new products is precisely the wireless headphones Huawei Free Lace.
These wireless headphones come to bring a bit of high-end to a market saturated with similar products. Therefore We want you to stay with us to see the in-depth analysis of the Huawei FreeLace and discover everything there is to tell about them. We go there with the analysis and characteristics of the new Huawei wireless headphones.
As always, we are going to take a tour of the most interesting features that these Huawei Free Lace have that you can buy for approximately 99,99 euros as soon as they go on sale, since the brand has not provided us with exact dates yet. Be that as it may, we will look at small details such as construction quality, and other more obvious details such as autonomy, but we recommend that you go through the video that we have left on the YouTube channel of Androidsis colleagues and that leads this analysis, Let's go!

Unboxing, design and materials
In this aspect Huawei could say that it has preferred not to risk too much, it clearly resembles the rest of the devices of the same range that are available in firms such as SoundPeats, Here the differentiating factor has been put by Huawei clearly in the details, the first example is the performance of the materials, We find flat rubbers with a fairly good touch and that avoid tangles, as well as the headphones are made of the same aluminum as the two ends of the "collar", in one we will find the USB-C and the multimedia controller, in the other only battery.
We will be able to buy them in four different finishes: Moonlight Silver, Emerald Green, Amber Sunrise and Graphite, of course the Chinese firm is betting on color, although in our analysis we have tested the black edition. I must also say that Huawei has worked a lot on packaging, We found a book-type box system of notorious quality and that will instantly remind us that we are facing the high-end of Huawei. We do not find in the box, of course, a power adapter, only a USB-C to USB-A converter cable to charge our headphones, along with a series of pads of different sizes for all tastes.
We have for each of the headphones a 9,2-millimeter driver made up of a TPU diaphragm and a titanium membrane, nothing more and nothing less. The reality is that the sound is clear and allows us to distinguish a wide range of instruments within the same song, something of high relevance. But the reality is that the absence of significant acoustic insulation causes the bass to be constantly lost when the headphones are not pressurized. Huawei has wanted to offer a high-quality product, but from my point of view they lack a bit of volume.
We do not have specific information about the specific type of connectivity, but we do not doubt that Huawei has implemented Bluetooth 5.0 in this device (yet to be confirmed). In the same way, what we do have is resistance to water and sweat IPX5 so using them for sports is not considered as an impediment. In my personal use I have had to avoid this purpose since I drop this type of headphones, however, they are the most widespread and the fact of having the collar system would in any case prevent them from coming into contact with the ground and suffering any kind of damage.
Autonomy and sound quality
At the level of autonomy, Huawei has not shared exactly the mAh capacity of its batteries, but they assure us that with a rate of use at medium volume it is capable of offering us 18 hours of music playback and around 14 if we use the microphones to make calls. A simply spectacular autonomy that we have been able to contrast by getting around 17 hours at medium high volumes. Furthermore, with a charge of five minutes and thanks to its "fast charge" system, we are able to achieve four more hours of autonomy.
The sound quality is that of this type of headphones, we have a moderate volume and a clear differentiation of the different sounds, although falls into the absence of bass when the placement is not perfect and ear adapters do not properly insulate from the outside. Things change when you have placed them correctly, the bass appears impeccably, but in this section it will depend a lot on the adaptability of each user to this type of headphones. Otherwise they comply, without too much fanfare, and taking into account their small size. As always, We cannot forget that they have microphones for calls and a system that corrects the annoying noise of the wind so that it does not interfere with our calls.
Differentiating characteristics and editor's opinion
One of the main attractions of these headphones is their colla systemr, they have a magnet at the base of each of the hearing aids that will "join" them when they are brought closer, this will not only allow us to carry them without having to store them, but also has a sensor that will automatically stop the music when we put them together and it will activate it again when we put them back in our ears, and this is simply the comfort made headphones.
- Immense quality of materials and a very careful design
- Exclusive features like auto-play and pauses
- A never-before-seen USB-C connection system
- The sound has left me a little "cold", I expected more
- It seems to me that they are too long
- They do not have a prominent grip
They also have the Huawei's new HiPair system, This will allow us to simply take advantage of its USB-C male connection to connect them directly to our Huawei smartphone and they will be configured automatically, without the need to carry out any type of Bluetooth connection. The logo of the headphones will appear on the screen and the music will begin to flow. Huawei has definitely put the icing on the cake to a range of headphones with a lot of competition, however, the price may perhaps be the most relevant ballast considering that the competition is offered for less than half. We do not have exact dates for the launch of the Huawei FreeLance, but the firm confirms prices of 99,99 euros in the Spanish market.
