The FreeBuds Pro are Huawei’s new noise-canceling wireless headphones and are already benefiting from a price drop from 199 to 179 euros on Cdiscount. In addition, a Huawei Band 4 Pro connected bracelet is offered!
We must not hide it: the Huawei FreeBuds Pro are very largely inspired by Apple’s AirPods Pro. The new wireless headphones from the Chinese manufacturer, however, stand out on a few specific elements, such as design, functionality or even the price which is also already down just two weeks after the launch.
- The rectangular rod design
- Adaptive active noise reduction
- Autonomy of around 30 hours with the box
Instead of 199 euros, the Huawei FreeBuds Pro pass from today at only 179 euros on Cdiscount with a Huawei Band 4 Pro connected bracelet – worth 79 euros – offered as a bonus for your wrist. This promotion concerns the two existing colors: noir and blanc.

As said before, the Huawei FreeBuds Pro look at first glance like a carbon copy of the AirPods Pro. Overall, we can see the same silhouette for the atria with this silicone tip, but there is a little subtlety that makes all the difference. The stem of the headphones is here rectangular, without discomfort for the ear, and provides additional controls via a simple pressure with your thumb and your index finger in addition to the controls of the touch zone.
The white charging box is also very similar to what the Cupertino company offers with this half-round, half-oval shape, but we appreciate much more the black color for a more beautiful effect. The finishes are quite surprising, so much so that it is difficult to spot the pairing button as it blends in well with the case. Spoiler : it is hidden on the right side. Autonomy is also announced at around thirty hours and wireless charging compatibility (and reverse wireless) is also part of the game.
The FreeBuds Pro are equipped with 11mm diameter speakers as well as a mechanical audio stabilization system to prevent shaking in the ear and thus achieve more precise sound. Via the dedicated application, it is also possible to analyze your ear to further improve the sound experience. There are many other features, including Perception mode to hear what is happening around you without removing the headphones, the reverse of noise reduction.
Speaking of noise reduction, Huawei’s looks really promising thanks to the two microphones facing outward and the other microphone facing inward. On paper, the FreeBuds Pro can block up to 40 dB of sound while Sony posts 38 dB with its WF-1000XM3 and Apple 33 dB with its AirPods Pro. In fact, we were amazed at the result, especially since the adaptive system called “Dynamic Noise Cancellation” is really useful for adjusting the level of reduction according to your environment. There are also three modes to be activated manually: cozy, general and ultra.
