Huawei brings in the TWS FreeBuds 5i with enhanced features
Following on from last year’s launch of their FreeBuds 4i, the company is bringing their FreeBuds 5i to Singapore from February 1, 2023.
With a similar shape to its predecessor, the FreeBuds 5i now have a snug fit thanks to the 7mm shorter stems.
While it still comes with noise cancellation, it now has three levels: Ultra, Generic, and Cozy. At a maximum level, the noise decreases by 42dB through the use of dual-mic ANC and hybrid noise reduction technology. Hybrid noise canceling technology is what Huawei uses alongside the traditional in-ear design to passively block high-frequency sounds using both inward and outward-facing microphones.
The FreeBuds 4, with its adaptive ear-matching technology and active noise cancellation, can block out up to 25 dB of ambient noise.
To enhance the listener’s music experience, the FreeBuds 5i delivers high-resolution music experience, with Hi-Res Audio Wireless (Hi-Res) certification. It comes with a mix of hardware, algorithmsa LDAC HD audio codecand multi-EQ effectsto play and transmit HD audio so that the original audio is always faithfully reproduced.
multi-EQ sound effects include three modes (standard, bass boost and treble boost) where the EQ is used to adjust the sound effect by adjusting the gain and other parameters of different frequencies. Each set of EQ parameters corresponds to one mode and the user can adjust all of them to the individual song.
FreeBuds 5i offers up to 28 hours of battery lifeand the ability to fast charge to play 4 hours of audio from just 15 minutes of charging, so users don’t have to worry about the battery running out quickly.
