Huawei Canada has introduced the new Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 true wireless earbuds, co-engineered with Devialet, and featuring an ‘Ultra-hearing True Sound Dual Driver’ sound system that the company says “intelligently coordinates two drivers, working in perfect unity, for excellent audio performance.”
The earbuds use a planar diaphragm usually found in high-end earbuds to produce precise treble and overtones, as well as a quad-magnet dynamic driver for medium and lower frequencies and punchier bass. The result, says Huawei, is a wide range, from 14Hz to 48kHz.
Equipped with ‘Triple Adaptive EQ’ technology, the FreeBuds Pro 2 can automatically tune audio according to ear canal structure, wearing posture, and volume level for personalized sound in real-time. Featuring the LDAC high-resolution audio codec protocol, they are certified with the HWA and Hi-Res Audio Wireless Certification.
The ‘Triple Mic ANC System’ boosts the average ANC depth by 15% compared to its predecessor, while the ‘Intelligent Dynamic ANC 2.0’ accurately identifies the external sound field environment and selects a suitable noise cancelling mode that eliminates noise for comfortable listening. Even on flights, the Intelligent Dynamic ANC 2.0 eliminates the roaring aircraft engine noises, says Huawei.
The new Pure Voice call noise cancellation technology, based on a 4-Mic Call Noise Cancellation system, delivers clear, quiet calls. It is combined with a Huawei-exclusive deep neural network (DNN) noise cancellation algorithm. Thus, the earbuds can accurately pick up human voices while improving noise cancellation. Adopting a new hidden wind-proof design, the FreeBuds Pro 2 can effectively reduce wind noises as well.
You can connect to two devices for automatic call switching, including smartphones, tablets, computers, and smartwatches from Android, iOS, and Windows.
With the ANC on, you can enjoy a quiet experience of up to four hours of playback time and a total of 18 hours with the case. With the ANC off, you can enjoy 6.5 hours of listening and a total of 30 hours with the case. If you’re on-the-go, the FreeBuds Pro 2 also support reverse charging on the earbuds case with a compatible phone or tablet. Since they are IP54 splash-resistant, they can withstand a bit of rain or sweat.
The Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 comes in Silver Frost, Ceramic White, or Silver Blue and sell for $269. To celebrate the Canadian launch, for a limited time, get a free Huawei Band 6 valued at $99 as a gift with purchase.
