It appears that Huawei is planning to launch its first over-ear headphones, dubbed as the FreeBuds Studio. According to a full-blown leak by German tech site WinFuture, the new device is said to feature Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and long hours of battery life.
The Huawei FreeBuds Studio sports a clean design, with swivel ear cups connected to a cushioned headband. It is said to be lightweight at only 265g and will be available in two colour options: Blush Gold and Graphite Black.
Winfuture claims that the headphones include a 40mm dynamic driver and a Kirin A1 chip. Its ANC system is said to be able to reduce ambient noise by up to 40 decibels, and can be deactivated manually if required. In terms of connectivity, the device includes a USB-C port for charging and Bluetooth 5.2 support for wireless connection.
The report added that the FreeBuds Studio is equipped with dual 410mAh batteries that allows it to last up to 20 hours for music playback and up to 15 hours for calls. Charging is done via the aforementioned USB-C port and will take around 70 minutes for a full charge. WinFuture noted that 10 minutes of charging is enough to provide the headphones around five hours of use.
The Huawei FreeBuds Studio is said to retail at EUR400 (~RM), according to the site. Its expected release date was not specified, but is speculated that the new headphones may launch alongside the upcoming Huawei Mate 40 Series next week.
