Everything You Need To Know About The HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i


The HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i is Huawei’s newest product. Huawei is most recognized for its powerful phones, with cameras that have won awards all around the world. They also have a good selection of wearables, and their audio line is gaining traction.

The HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro, and HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i, but now the HUAWEI Freebuds 4i have all been introduced in the last several years. Huawei appears to be attempting to distinguish out from the crowd by including a slew of amazing features (which we’ll go over in more detail below) and pricing the FreeBuds 4i at a very appealing $138.99.

Here’s all you need to know about Huawei Freebuds 4i, without further ado.

What’s In The Box

The charging case with HUAWEI Freebuds 4i inside, a USB-C charging cable, 2 additional sets of silicone ear tips (small and large), a fast start guide, safety information, and also the warranty card are all included in the relatively tiny box.


The charging case looks and feels like a polished rock, and it’s just the right size to fit in your hand. Ceramic White, Carbon Black, & my favorite, a very strong Red are the three colors available for the case and earbuds.

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i features a magnetized base, so they won’t fall out of the case, but they are a little difficult to remove due to their smoothness. It takes some practice to figure out where you should grab them. They are extremely light, weighing only 5.5 grams each. After a few minutes of wearing them, you’ll forget you’re wearing them.

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i comes with extra silicone ear tips, as described above, so they’ll be nice and tight once the appropriate size is found. Microphones are located at the base of each earbud. These are used to make and receive phone conversations, as well as to assist with the Active Noise Suppression (ANC) feature.

Capacitive sensors on the back of each earbud enable gesture commands, which we discuss further down.

What exactly do you get for your money?

The Huawei FreeBuds 4i is the cheapest active noise-canceling earphones I’ve tried. They’ll cost you back £80 and come in three colorways: Ceramic White, Carbon Black, and Honey Red. That’s £10 less than their predecessors, the FreeBuds 3i, costing at launch, and less than half the FreeBuds Pro’s RRP. The FreeBuds 4i, like the FreeBuds Pro, works wirelessly over Bluetooth 5.2 & supports the AAC & SBC Bluetooth codecs. They also come with the same extras: a USB-C cable for charging the case & three sets of ear tips in various sizes to ensure a snug and stable fit.


  • Battery Life & Fast Charging
  • Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)
  • Gesture Control
  • Pure Sound Quality
  • Connectivity


The FreeBuds 4i, like many other goods, has features that buyers enjoy and features that they dislike. For less than $140, these earbuds offer long-lasting playback, noise reduction, all-day comfort, gesture controls, and decent sound quality. That’s something not many manufacturers could boast about, so these earphones are a great deal!
