Huawei FreeBuds Pro review: TWS headphones that are enough
Finding the perfect earbuds is not an easy task. And even more so for specific occasions: listening to music from the computer, listening to music at home, outdoors, on the subway, flying. for each of these scenarios is the right model, but not the fact that it will be perfect. And it’s impossible to find the perfect TWS headphones: they have to be compact, comfortable, have to work for a long time, have noise modulation (sorry, there’s nowhere without it). Of course we can’t forget the sound or the price: 25k for the Airpods Pro is already a bit much, to say the least.
And here’s Huawei releasing the FreeBuds Pro. The company’s last model Huawei FreeBuds 3i turned out to be a rarely successful solution with great sound:
Review of Huawei Freebuds 3i: The Best TWS for Android?
These are great headphones. But FreeBuds Pro cost 15 thousands (or 11,5 with all possible discounts during promo period). Does it make sense to overpay six thousand for the Pro set-top box?? Or it’s worth saving?
How to Connect Wireless Headphones to a Windows PC?
If you bought TWS headphones with a charging case, then open it and without taking the headphones out, press the small button on the case itself for 2-3 seconds.
If the headphones come without a case or there are no buttons on the case, then put the headphones in your ears (or put them on your head) and press the button or the touch pads on the headphones for 7 seconds.
Open the Bluetooth menu on your computer and click Add Bluetooth or other device.
In the window that appears, select Bluetooth Mice, keyboards, audio or other types of devices.
The computer will start searching for Bluetooth headphones available for connection and as soon as they appear, select them with the mouse. In some cases you will need to confirm the connection by clicking on the appropriate button.
Done! It is important to note that you only need to go through these steps once. From now on, the headphones will automatically connect to your notebook as soon as you take them out of the case or turn on the power.
Comment on the instructions for connecting bluetooth headphones to your computer
If you have problems or questions about any of these points, then more detailed instructions with illustrations and Комментарии и мнения владельцев.
Decide which headphones you have first. If these are fully wireless TWS headphones with a charging case, then look closely at the case to see if there is a button on it.
See where this button might be located and what it looks like using Apple Airpods as an example:
If there is such a button, then open the lid of the case and press this button for 2-3 seconds. You will see the LED indicator inside the case flash white rapidly. This means that the headphones are in pairing mode and are available for connection to any device.
There are buttons like this on many models, including:
If there is no such button (Xiaomi AirDots, Sony WF-1000XM3, etc.) or your headphones do not have a charging case at all, then:
- If you have a mechanical button on the headphones, press this button for 7 seconds until the LED indicator on the headphones starts flashing white
- For touch control, press the sensors on both headphones at the same time and hold for 5-7 seconds until you see the LED flashing white as well
Now you can move on to the next steps.
Among the common problems are the obvious discharge of the gadget. Often users forget to put the device in the case or put it on the charge, which later causes false ideas about the malfunction. The headphones should be stored only in a special case, and in spite of the long time of work it is not necessary to forget about the charge of the battery. Let’s explore other possible problems below.
Smartphone does not see the headphones
If the smartphone does not see the headset, then try manually performing the pairing. After turning on the Bluetooth, start the search, and then select the name of the headset model from the suggested list. Presented solution did not work? Android system failure is often the cause. Reboot the cell phone and repeat the procedure.
The sound is mono and of poor quality
The next problem is the poor sound quality, not corresponding to the described characteristics. Usually this problem is due to a faulty protocol definition. That is, Android was unable to run A2DP, a profile for playing stereo sound. To fix the problem, reboot both gadgets. the smartphone and the headphones.
The second solution involves re-pairing. To do this, you need to remove the headset that is already connected. Go to the Bluetooth menu and click on the “i” next to the name of the wireless device. Then tap “Cancel Pairing”.
Afterwards, reconnect the gadget as you did the first time.

And how to connect a wired headset to Huawei P Smart-
Hi, turn on Bluetooth on your phone. Slide the Notifications Panel curtain down from the top row of the screen and on the Notifications Panel, tap the “Bluetooth” icon. With the stereo headphones off, press and hold the power button for 10-20 seconds. At first you will turn on the stereo headset and the LED will light up for 1-2 seconds, usually blue. After a while, as long as you hold down the power button, the LED will flash alternately, usually two colors blue and red or blue and white. It is possible that the LED lights up steadily. This means that the stereo headset goes into pairing mode in which it will stay for 30 to 60 seconds. On your phone, click on the Search icon. Your smartphone will list all the Bluetooth devices it has detected and you’re ready to connect. Next, on the screen of the smartphone in the list of detected devices click on the icon of your headphones. After that headset will be paired with your smartphone. On some models of headphones you may be prompted for a password, so type in “0000” (four zeros), or whatever is listed in the device’s manual.

Huawei‘s latest wireless headphones combine everything we like, such as an interesting design with ease of use, active noise cancellation, vastly improved microphones, better Android compatibility, and a wireless charging case.
But the best part of it all is probably the price. FreeBuds 3 have become one of the best value for money, quality and high functionality in their segment, especially when compared to their closest competitors.
As for who should buy Huawei FreeBuds 3, we would recommend these wireless headphones to all Airpods fans who use Android smartphones. If you have an iPhone, then the functions of FreeBuds 3 will not be available, but even in this case, they can be a very good solution.
