Huawei unveiled its latest tablets, laptops, and earbuds at the Huawei Product Launch event themed “Creation of Beauty” in Dubai. Among the new devices launched at the event were the HUAWEI FreeClip — a pair of fashionable earbuds with an open ear design, the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 13.2″ — Huawei’s largest tablet to date, a refreshed lineup of the MateBook D 16 laptops, and the PaperMatte Edition of the popular HUAWEI MatePad Air. This latest product launch follows in the footsteps of October’s the “Fashion Forward” event, that saw the unveiling of new wearable products lineup.
“Technology can be a canvas for creativity. With the HUAWEI FreeClip earphones, we are bringing fashion to wearable audio tech, turning them into a stylish statement. It is the result of Huawei’s continuous exploration and investment in creating groundbreaking innovations. We are also introducing the new HUAWEI MatePad Pro 13.2″, a tablet that will help people unleash their creativity,” said Pablo Ning, President of Huawei Consumer Cloud Service Global Ecosystem Development & Sales Department.
The FreeClip are Huawei’s first open-ear earbuds that combine wireless audio and chic design in one versatile device that resembles jewelry. Users can enjoy the comfort of open-ear listening and express their personal style at the same time. Thanks to the innovative C-bridge Design, they fit snugly along the curvature of the ear. The C-bridge Design is the centerpiece of the FreeClip that serves as the earbuds’ clip and the connector between the acoustic and battery units. The FreeClip design is based on data from research done on 10,000+ human ears to refine the micron-level ergonomic design that has undergone 25,000+ reliability tests. This ensures that the earbuds stay on the ears even during the most intense physical activities.
The FreeClip’s open-ear listening technology delivers clear and immersive sound without blocking the ambient noise. To minimise sound leakage and ensure privacy, the earbuds use a reverse sound wave system that intelligently adjusts the volume and cancels the sound waves that leak out of the earbuds.
The earbuds come in a shell-shaped charging case that has a pearlescent sheen and a smooth stone-like texture. The case offers a comfortable grip and a unique aesthetic that blends simplicity and elegance. With the charging case, the FreeClip boasts a total music playback time of 36 hours. If the battery runs low, users can quickly charge the earbuds for 10 minutes and enjoy 3 hours of listening.
