Review: Huawei FreeBuds Lipstick Comes to SA


The innovative, new Huawei FreeBuds Lipstick wireless earphones are proof that dynamite comes in small packages. Combining style and excellent sound quality in one small, but chic device, these new true wireless earbuds are sure to be on the wish list of any stylish lady this festive season.

Created at Huawei’s aesthetic research centre in Paris, France, the Huawei FreeBuds Lipstick is designed to look exactly like a tube of lipstick. While the earphones themselves are just like the Freebuds 4 — open ear design, a standard length of the stem, and the same battery capacity (30 mAh in each bud, 410 mAh more in the case). The big difference here is the colour and the unusual case.

The deep red earphones are housed in a luxury black and gold stainless steel charging case with a smooth, polished and mirror-like surface that resembles a luxury lipstick tube. The device’s exterior’s special coating is also scratch-resistant to ensure the colour remains consistent, and the case’s luxury looks are long-lasting. The design of the case also features rounded arcs and delicate fine lines that are both beautiful to look at and comfortable to hold, making the product sleek, elegant and minimalist. It truly is a thing of beauty and a lust-worthy item any fashionista would love to own.

If you’re concerned about losing your freebuds, then the magnetic charging case will ensure they’re always nearby. The charging case uses magnets to keep the earphones firmly in place when the lid is open or closed. Two magnets in the bottom of the case, as well as micro-magnets in earphones, keep the device and its case close at all times.

Beyond the luxury looks

Of course, true to Huawei form, the quality of the earphones is as exceptional from an audio perspective as from a design perspective. The earphones use active noise cancellation and AEM technology to create a superior listening experience any audiophile will appreciate.

The earphones support three equaliser modes — balanced, bass boost and treble boost — to personalise your listening experience. With its 14mm dynamic driver, the earphones deliver crisp, clear sound. The earphones deliver well-defined sound in all use cases without artificially boosting the bass. Overall the balanced output is sure to please most people.

Just like the regular Freebuds 4, the Huawei Freebuds Lipstick can be connected through Bluetooth to pretty much any device but needs the Huawei AI Life app to unlock the full functionality.

The charging case ensures you’re always ready to listen on the move. A single charge of the buds gets you about 4 hours of music playback and a total of 22 hours of music playback with a fully charged case. The Freebuds Lipstick can be charged with the accompanying USB C charging cable.

Now available in South Africa

With its pleasing aesthetics and impressive technical specifications, the Huawei FreeBuds Lipstick makes for the perfect gift this festive season. It also comes in a special scented gift box, making it even more special to unwrap — for you or the person you’re gifting it to.

The Huawei FreeBuds Lipstick is available in South Africa at a recommended price of R3,999.
