Press Release


HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i deliver excellent performance and impressive active noise cancellation, all wrapped up in an ergonomically designed body

SINGAPORE, 9 JUNE 2020 – Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) today announced the launch of the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i, offering a premium audio experience with seamless connectivity. Featuring a new closed fit in-ear design and Active Noise Cancellation technology, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i offer an incredible immersive audio experience, whatever your surroundings. Users can enjoy music to the full, and have crystal clear conversations wherever they are.

Music In, World Out

Whether listening to your favourite music, holding calls with loved ones or experiencing thrilling movie audio effects, enjoy uninterrupted moments with the ultimate noise-cancelling experience. HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i come with two outward-facing mics and one inward-facing mic. While the outward-facing mic detects ambient noise to actively counter with anti-noise, the inward-facing mic picks up the other noises in your ears for further cancellation, actively lowering background noise by up to 32dB[1]. The three mics offer thorough noise cancellation for improved call quality, bringing you an immersive listening experience.

Ultimate Performance

For seamless interaction between all of your HUAWEI devices, a pop-up window on your smartphone[2] helps to automatically pair the devices as soon as the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i charging case is open, allowing users to instantly enjoy their favourite songs or easily keep an eye on the battery status.

Syncing with your every move, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i feature built-in capacitive sensors on both sides, offering unrivalled convenience and control for users. Simply double-tap for music and calls, and long-tap for active noise cancellation. Furthermore, playback will intelligently pause when the earbuds are taken out and resumes once they are placed back in.

Excellent Sound

HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i feature 10mm large dynamic drivers, helping to deliver a powerful bass. Furthermore, the highly sensitive polymer composite diaphragms are carefully tuned to deliver authentic and balanced audio.

Fit Your Style

Crafted with style and fit in mind, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i feature ergonomic cone-shaped main bodies, complete with flexible silicon tips that come in four different sizes.

Pricing and Availability

From 13 June 2020, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i will be available in Ceramic White at a retail price of S$168 at Huawei’s official online stores with Lazada and Shopee; as well as authorised retailers including Challenger, COURTS and Harvey Norman.

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i is also available in Carbon Black that will be sold in late June.
