**Updated on 30 October 2020, 16:50, with pricing details.**

The Freebuds Studios are feature-packed.

During their announcement of their new Mate 40 smartphone, Huawei also unveiled their new Huawei FreeBuds Studio headphones that are set to challenge incumbents like Sony, Bose, and Apple’s Beats.

Huawei FreeBuds Studio has a 40mm dynamic driver at with a claimed frequency response of 4Hz to 48kHz .

No word on supported codecs except that the Freebuds Studio will support L2HC, a new high-resolution codec that claims to deliver throughputs of up to 960kbps with support for 24-bit/96kHz high-res music. However, this codec only works with Huawei phones running EMUI 11 or later.

Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) is handled with a dual-mic hybrid ANC system and will kill off up to 40dB of external noise.

With two antennas built-in, you get 360° signal coverage and no signal drops. Plus, each Huawei FreeBuds Studio can be connected to two devices. And you can seamlessly switch between the two, whether they be Mac, Windows, iOS or Android-based.

Simple smart controls.

Smart controls are built into the headphones themselves. Swiping left and right scrolls you through your music playlist while swiping up and down controls the volume. Double-tap on the headphones to play or pause or to answer calls.

Excellent battery life.

Enjoy 24 hours of playback on a full charge. But with Huawei's fast-charging, you can get 8 hours of playback from just a 10-minute charge.

It will ship in two colours.

The Huawei FreeBuds Studio will ship in both gold and black.

Priced at S$398, it will be available at all Huawei Concept stores, and selected consumer electronic stores including Best Denki, Challenger, Courts, Harvey Norman, and official online stores with Lazada and Shopee.
