Yesterday, Huawei, in addition to unveiling a range of devices, including the lightweight, waterproof foldable Mate X3 smartphone, also announced the Freebuds Pro 2+, an upgraded version of the premium Freebuds Pro 2 fully wireless earphones introduced last year.
The specifications of the Freebuds Pro 2+ are largely identical to the Pro 2, but in addition to supporting music playback, the earphones, like a fitness bracelet, allow you to track the user’s heart rate and temperature.
The company said that the device uses the industry’s first infrared and green light heart rate sensor, providing higher measurement accuracy. Due to the addition of sensors, the left earbud gained 0.2g in weight and now weighs 6.3g versus 6.1g for the right earbud and the previous version of the Freebuds Pro 2.
Freebuds Pro 2+ are equipped with 11mm dynamic drivers and tweeters, providing music playback in the frequency range from 14Hz to 48kHz. The sound of music tracks can be adjusted to your taste using the equalizer in the application. Headphones support touch control and have a system of active noise reduction with three microphones, which allows you to compensate for noise up to 47 dB. While exercising, you can turn on the transparent transmission mode so that you can hear the sounds around you without removing your headphones. To connect to an external source, the Bluetooth 5.2 protocol is used. The headphones are protected against dust and splash water according to the IP54 standard.
The battery life of the earphones with the noise canceling mode turned on is 3.7 hours, taking into account the use of the charging case – 17 hours. With noise cancellation turned off, the earbuds last 5.8 hours and 27 hours, respectively. The device supports USB-C charging as well as wireless Qi.
The Freebuds Pro 2+ is available for pre-order in China for 1,399 yuan ($205). After the start of sales on April 9, the price of the headphones will rise to 1,499 yuan ($220). The date of the start of global sales of Freebuds Pro 2+ will be announced later.
