Review: Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 TWS Bluetooth Earbuds

Friday, August 26th, 2022

Two years after Huawei launched its first FreeBuds Pro flagship True Wireless Stereo (TWS) Bluetooth earbuds, the Chinese company has released its successor. Co-engineered with French Audio experts Devialet, the FreeBuds Pro 2 offers flagship-level audio quality, great active noise cancellation (ANC), at a mid-range price.

I’ve been trying the Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 prior to its launch in Singapore. It is available in Silver Frost (seen here) as well as Ceramic White and Silver Blue.

The FreeBuds Pro 2 is Huawei’s latest flagship TWS Bluetooth (5.2) earbuds.

The silicone earbud tip provides good sealing and does a good job of keeping out ambient noise even without turning on the active noise canceling mode.

The earbuds are a snug fit and didn’t fall out even when I went for a mild jog.

Weighing only 6.1g, it’s easy to forget they’re in the ears and I was able to wear them comfortably for long hours.

Review: Sony WF-C500 Entry-Level True Wireless Earbuds

Saturday, December 18th, 2021

tech4xmas: If you’re looking for an affordable pair of earbuds with good sound quality that’s synonymous with Sony, the no-frills WF-C500 true wireless earbuds will make a good Christmas gift.

The Sony WF-C500 earbuds offers good audio quality at an affordable price.

The Sony WF-C500 earbuds offers good audio quality at an affordable price.

The WF-C500 offers good value-for-money in terms of sound quality but at the expense of features that are found in other earbuds of similar price range or higher.

At an affordable S$139, the WF-C500 has had to forego frills like noise cancellation, transparency mode, wireless charging and automatic pausing when you remove one or both earbuds.

The earbuds are IPX4 rated so they’re splash resistant.

Freshly unboxed Sony WF-C500 True Wireless Earbuds.

Battery life is reasonable at 10 hours with full charge, plus an additional 10 hours from the pill-shaped charging case.

This is plenty long for me although it’s common for charging cases to provide twice the full charge of their earbuds.

I like that a quick charge of 10 minutes gave me a full hour of mileage.
