Our review of Huawei’s FreeBuds Pro 3

Huawei FreeBuds Pro 3 review

The new HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro 3 are equipped with updated software and hardware that take advantage of the new chip Kirin A2 more performing on all fronts, especially noise reduction. Among the new features we find a new Hi-Res Dual Driver audio system and intelligent ANC1 3.0 system capable of offering authentic and excellent quality sound.

The listening experience in this generation has been improved thanks to these technologies as well to the three-band adaptive equalizerfor more immersive audio quality whether we are talking about music, watching films and TV series or video games.

But let’s start in order!

FreeBuds Pro 3

The design of the HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro 3 remains almost unchanged compared to the FreeBuds Pro 2. Both the case and the headphones maintain the same design and dimensions. The nano glass case boasts the same satin style that provides an excellent feel and leaves no fingerprints. The back of the case, where the hinge is located, is mirrored and houses the Huawei logo. In this edition, the True Wireless will be available in three colors, Ceramic White, Silver Fros and Green, the latter being the version used in this review.

The True Wireless headphones also feature the same design with a rectangular stem. The headphones lose the satin effect to give space to a shiny design which, despite this, fortunately does not retain fingerprints of various types.

Inside the package, in addition to the case with the True Wireless inside, we also find the instruction booklet, a USB Type-C cable and three pairs of eartips for the headphones which are added to those already inserted in the headphones.


The real innovations of the FreeBuds Pro 3 are found inside. The True Wireless are equipped with a Hi-Res Dual Driver audio system capable of offering an excellent listening experience capable of making the sound reach 48kHz. The headphones also support L2HC 2.03 and LDAC4 codecs and are certified by both HWA and Hi-Res Audio Wireless. This translates into excellent, detailed audio quality.

As anticipated, the headphones also use a three-band adaptive equalizer which guarantees a personalized listening experience. Added to this versatility is the Huawei AI Lite application which allows you to customize the sound through the Adaptation Test which sets the best audio quality depending on our ear canal.

Last but not least, the FreeBuds Pro 3 support Pure Voice 2.0 technology which improves voice reception during voice calls up to 2.5 times compared to the competition. This also improves the noise cancellation level by 50%. The intelligent ANC 3.0 algorithm also takes care of improving noise cancellation.

To power everything we have a 55 mAh battery for the headphones and 510 mAh for the case. Battery life reaches up to 31 hours with the charging case
and up to 6.5 hours on a single charge.

Our test of the Huawei FreeBuds Pro 3

For this review of the Huawei FreeBuds Pro 3 we tested the headphones for about two weeks during which we made them our headphones of choice.

As far as the design is concerned, we can’t tear our hair out too much as it is very similar to the previous FreeBuds Pro but on the other hand, a winning horse cannot be changed. The performance of the materials is excellent and it is pleasant to hold the case in your hands. The headphones themselves are the right size, neither too small to get lost or slip from the ears, nor too large to weigh on them after prolonged use. The set of included rubber tips also allows us to select the ones most suited to our hearing and in all the days of testing, travel, gym and walking, we never had the feeling that they were about to fall.

Excellent performance also from the audio which, although it does not particularly stand out from other TrueWireless headphones on the market, offers us excellent quality. The noise cancellation is more than excellent. The combination of artificial intelligence, software and physical microphones manages to greatly reduce background noise, which has proven to be a blessing especially on the plane or on the subway.

The battery life is also good and never left us dry. We’re not sure if the 30+ hours of use promised by Huawei are the truth, especially if you constantly use features like noise cancellation, but overall, we’re more than satisfied.

We were also pleasantly surprised by the touch controls which, although they do not differ from the standards (1 pinch to pause, the slide for the volume and so on) respond excellently without any latency.

The review of the Huawei FreeBuds Pro 3 in brief

Huawei FreeBuds Pro 3

Huawei’s FreeBuds Pro 3 represent a step forward although not immediately visible. The few design innovations are inversely proportional to the technological innovations introduced this year. Between artificial intelligence, a new chip and improved performance, these FreeBuds Pro 3 also maintain Huawei’s high standards.

All this at a price of €199.99, more than adequate compared to the performance but not so advantageous as to justify a switch between the previous model and this one. However, it is an excellent True Wireless model that offers premium performance and the latest technology on the market.
