Huawei had a big event yesterday showcasing the P60 series, Mate X3, Watch Ultimate, MatePad 11 2023, Enjoy 60 mid-range smartphone and FreeBuds 5 TWS earbuds. But that was not all. Additionally, the Chinese launched the Huawei Freebuds Pro 2+, an upgraded version of its top-of-the-line TWS earbuds.
The Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2+ are largely identical to the regular FreeBuds Pro 2, but add a few new sensors. These enable heart rate and temperature tracking and should therefore also take part in any sporting activities. The company says this is the industry’s first infrared and green light dual heart rate monitor, allowing for even greater precision.
As a result of the new sensors, the left headphone has gained 0.2g in weight and now weighs 6.3g. The right earbud stays at the 6.1g of the Freebuds Pro 2. Other than that, they’re the same high-quality Huawei TWS headphones as before. The charging case weighs 52g and houses a 580mAh battery (in addition to the 55mAh in each earbud). Wired charging via USB-C and wireless Qi charging are supported.
The Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2+ are among the few earphones with two speakers – in addition to a dynamic 11 mm driver, there is also a micro tweeter on board. There are touch controls and solid active noise cancellation. The Bluetooth version is 5.2 and the whole thing is IP54 certified for protection against dust and splashing water.
The Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2+ are currently available for pre-order in China at an early bird price of CNY1,399 (€189/$205). Once the official sale begins on April 9, the price will rise to 1,499 CNY (€203/$220). Global availability will also be announced on April 9th.
