Thanks to Huawei, I manage to get a review set and test it out recently. I will do a full review soon but here is the unboxing and first-hand experience of the HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 on TechieLobang YouTube channel. If you have not subscribed to it, I do encourage you to do so as I will post most of my experiences on new products first on YouTube.
In my review, I did the unboxing and had the FreeBuds 4 with me for a few 10KM runs. I believe most people will not trust open-fit earbuds during a run as they might drop easily. You can check out my experiences in this review.
There are more things to share. I will do a full review soon. Stay tuned!
The HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 will be retailed at S$198 but if you pre-order it (17th to 23rd July 2021), you can get S$20 off the retail price (e.g. S$178) and free protective casing (while stocks last). It will generally be available from 24th July 2021.
There are two colorways: Ceramic White or Silver Frost. Personally, I prefer the Silver Frost. Check out the Press Release for more information.

SINGAPORE, 14 JULY 2021 – Huawei today announced the launch of its newly upgraded open-fit TWS earphones HUAWEI FreeBuds 4.

A new benchmark for comfortable open-fit ANC and tranquil audio experience
In 2019, Huawei introduced the world’s first open-fit ANC TWS earbuds, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3, finally allowing consumers to enjoy the comfort of an open-fit wearing style while also benefitting from the immersive ANC sound quality. After nearly two years of continuous R&D investment and accumulation of technical expertise, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 has been launched, equipped with newly upgraded Open-fit ANC 2.0 technology which has improved
noise cancellation at the hardware and software level, taking open-fit, comfortable noise cancellation to new levels.
The new HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 features dual-microphone noise cancellation technology to deliver upgraded noise cancellation performance. It is the industry’s first set of open-fit earbuds to use dual-microphone noise cancellation technology, which ensures that the microphones pick up ambient noise with far greater accuracy, reaching industry-leading levels.
To enhance noise cancellation effectively across different wearing scenarios, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 uses Adaptive Ear Matching (AEM) noise cancellation technology and are the first open-fit earbuds in the industry to do so. When noise cancellation is switched on, the earbuds automatically detect the user’s ear shape and determine the optimum noise
cancellation setup for each user, resulting in the most comfortable noise cancellation experience.
Up to 40kHz frequency response for more immersive listening
The HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 use a Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) composite diaphragm, which is support a frequency range of up to 40kHz, delivering high resolution sound quality. With no major quality loss, the treble part sounds richer and fuller.
What’s more, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 is equipped with a 14.3mm dynamic driver, producing greater and more impressive bass sounds.
In terms of bass performance, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 adopt a newly upgraded bass enhancement engine, bass tube and motherboard to form an independently sealed sound cavity. Compared to FreeBuds 3, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 dramatically enhance the airtightness and acoustic pressure, and the volume of the bass tube is increased by 15%,
which provides intensified resonance effect from the air and diaphragm.
HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 feature Adaptive Ear Matching (AEM) technology in open-fit earphones for the first time. By automatically detecting user’s ear shape and wearing condition, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 can intelligently optimise the audio effect, allowing users to have consistent and high resolution audio quality regardless of the wearing situation2.
When ANC is turned off, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 offers 4 hours of continuous music playback. Together with the charging case, it can achieve 22 hours of music playback. If the ANC is turned on, it can offer 2.5 hours of continuous music playback. Moreover, the industry-leading quick charge technology provides 2.5 hours of audio enjoyment from a 15-minute charge, so users do not need to worry about the battery level when they are out and about or in a hurry.
“Breathable” build: Ultimate wearing comfort packed in a sophisticated, lightweight design
Wearing comfort is the key to ensuring an optimal user experience. Compared with its predecessor HUAWEI FreeBuds 3, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 is revamped with 13 size optimisations, further reducing its body size for a lighter weight. It only weighs 4.1g3 per earbud. The HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 also brings three enhancements to its overall curvature for a better fit. The string of optimisations not only enables a more pleasant wearing experience and increased rigidity, but it also allows for strengthened ANC performance of the HUAWEI FreeBuds 4.
The charging case of the HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 is just 21.2mm while weighing only 38g, which is 6.3% smaller and 20.8% lighter than its predecessor. It adopts a symmetrically round design along with refined craftsmanship, exhibiting a simplistic yet sophisticated feel overall.
