Huawei has announced the launch of the Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 which build on the reputation of the 2020 launched Huawei FreeBuds Pro.

Co-engineered with Devialet, these earbuds feature 11mm drivers along with a secondary planar diaphragm driver so the Freebuds Pro 2 can reach a broader frequency range of 14Hz to 48kHz. Most other earbuds range from 20Hz-20kHz in comparison.

The active noise cancelling circuit uses three highly sensitive microphones and offers a wider noise cancellation frequency range with up to 47dB of noise cancellation. This is slightly more than the 40dB of noise cancellation of the FreeBuds Pro.

The Dual connection feature offers connection with two devices and supports automatic call switching. This feature works with Huawei all-scenario devices including smartphones, tablets, PCs and watches, as well as with Android, iOS, and Windows-based systems.

Battery life is said to be up to 4 hours of playback time with ANC on and a total of 18 hours with the case. With ANC off, users can enjoy six and a half hours of playback and 30 hours with the case.

For those who need a pair of all-rounded, affordable, and comfortable earbuds for long-term listening, Huawei is also launching its Huawei FreeBuds SE. designed for long-term listening in comfort, each set of earbuds comes with three different sizes of feather-light silicone tips for a comfortable, flexible fit, each weighing only 5.1g.

Lacking the active noise cancellation and the high-resolution audio codecs of the FreeBuds Pro 2, the  FreeBuds SE have instead 10mm drivers and relies on the design for environmental noise cancellation (ENC) and two microphones to deliver clear voice calls.

With Bluetooth 5.2, Huawei says their FreeBuds SE have lower power consumption, higher connection stability, faster transmission speed, and reduced disconnection and lag.

Huawei claims a smooth connection regardless of whether the earbuds are connected to an Android or iOS device.

Fully charged, the  FreeBuds SE support six hours of continuous music playback, while using a fully-charged case can extend this time up to 24 hours. For voice calls, the fully charged earbuds can be used for four hours of call-time. The case itself takes about two hours to charge.
