(Pocket-lint) – Huawei is expanding its range of wireless earbuds for the new year by launching the Freebuds 5i, and they’re packed with a host of high-end features, packed into a product that’s priced under $100 £ in the UK.

It’s rare to find TWS headphones in this price range that match both Active Noise Canceling (ANC) and high-resolution LDAC audio support, and yet that’s exactly what the Freebuds 5i offers. . Of course, to take advantage of the Hi-Res codec, you need a compatible phone or device to connect the headphones to.

The hybrid ANC system is designed to detect and adapt to outside noise and noise measured inside your ear canal. It combines the passive seal of the silicone tip with two dedicated noise-cancelling microphones on the headphones themselves.


You’ll be able to switch between Ultra, General, and Cozy noise reduction modes, depending on how much noise you might be blocking out.

According to Huawei, the Freebuds 5i also offer excellent battery life. On a full charge, the case and earbuds combined will deliver up to 28 hours of music playback, which should mean a comfortable week or two between recharges if you use them every day for music.


Design-wise, the headphones look a lot like Huawei’s existing line of headphones, but the charging case has been redesigned to look like a smooth pebble. The exterior of the case has been stained and finished to provide this visual and tactile texture.

Huawei’s budget ANC headphones will be available in black, white and blue direct from Huawei and on Amazon from 16 January 2023, priced at £89.99 in the UK and €99 in Europe.
