It’s no big secret that Huawei is going through a very difficult time in the global smartphone market, and according to a couple of recent reports, the Chinese tech giant’s tablets and smartwatches aren’t exactly selling like hotcakes either, at least compared to the industry-leading Apple Watch and iPad lineups, as well as Samsung’s fast-growing Galaxy slates and wearable devices.
Meet the super-lightweight, presumably comfortable, and “high-res” Huawei FreeBuds 4 (hold the “i”)
Following in the footsteps of 2019’s very well-reviewed but inherently flawed FreeBuds 3, the FreeBuds 4 go the open-fit style route, once again aiming to strike the perfect balance between lightweight comfort and “high resolution” sound quality.
The noise cancellation should be great, the battery life… not so much
Equipped with a 14.3mm dynamic driver, the Huawei FreeBuds 4 allegedly have “greater and more impressive” bass going for them as well. Last but certainly not least, the battery life starts at a wholly unimpressive 2.5 hours of continuous music playback (with ANC turned on), capping off at a stellar 22 hours of endurance when also taking the bundled (wired) charging case into consideration.
