The wearing comfort of the FreeClip is outstanding, and the innovative clip approach not only offers stability, but also a fashionable touch. When it comes to the open-ear headphones market, HUAWEI makes the FreeClip an impressive option in this emerging market segment. We tested them for you.

And finally ... With the FreeClip, HUAWEI emphasizes its role as an innovator and sets a new standard in the open-ear market. These headphones are not only recommended for people who wear glasses, but also for anyone who is looking for a stylish and compact companion. They do not replace the audio quality of in-ears or over-ears, they simply lack the rich sound. But depending on the scenario (while running, as a pedestrian on a busy street) they offer a lot of awareness and security of what's going on around you. They are also a clear recommendation in the office or in the office.

Design and comfort

The HUAWEI FreeClip clearly sets itself apart from the competition by replacing traditional brackets behind the ear with a side clip mechanism. This revolutionary approach enables a compact design, comparable to conventional TWS headphones. Wearing glasses probenefit from this design change as only a small portion of the FreeClip remains behind the ear. The buds are available in purple (almost silver) and black (metallic shine) and look like fashionable earrings or piercings.

Furthermore, the workmanship is impeccable, and the IP54 certification gives the FreeClip robust resistance to dust and water. The charging case, small and light, is compact and portable compared to other open-ear models. The wearing comfort of the FreeClip is outstanding, and the innovative clip approach not only offers stability, but also a fashionable touch. The buds fit comfortably and remain secure even when worn for long periods of time. Although the clip approach can seem special, it attracts attention and could serve as a statement of modern style.

Sound and call quality

The HUAWEI FreeClip uses Bluetooth 5.3 with the codecs SBC, AAC, L2HC and LC3. The sound in quiet environments is impressive with strong mids and highs at 70 to 90 Procent volume. If the ambient noise increases, which is characteristic of open-ear headphones, the music quality can be affected. The buds are particularly suitable for audio books and podcasts. Despite the open design, the volume is astonishing, even in noisy environments such as airplanes. The bass range remains a weak point, but the overall performance is acceptable, especially for frequent phone users.

Call quality is ensured by two microphones and VPU wind noise cancellation. A DNN algorithm improves call quality even in adverse conditions, including wind noise and noisy environments.

The app associated with the headphones offers functions such as firmware updates, battery status overview and equalizer presets. Control is limited, however, and the equalizer only offers four preset options. For Android users, the app requires downloading as an APK or via the HUAWEI App Gallery. On the other hand, iOS users can get the app directly from the App Store. The app is optional but useful for occasional updates and customizations.

Battery life

The impressive battery life of the HUAWEI FreeClip sets new standards. With seven hours of music playback at 80 Pro35% volume and a total of 510 hours with the charging case, they are an excellent choice for everyday use. Wear detection and automatic disconnection when not connected maximize usage. The XNUMX mAh charging case allows for multiple full charges and practically prevents the headphones from being completely discharged. Wireless charging is an additional feature for added convenience.
