When used with the accompanying charging case, the Huawei FreeClip offers 36-hours of listening, ensuring that users can enjoy their favourite tunes throughout the day without worrying about battery life. The earbuds can intelligently identify the wearer’s left and right ears too, avoiding the hassle of having to figure out which one goes where.


With support for AI Crystal-Clear calls and dual-device connections, the FreeClip becomes a useful companion for frequent travellers and fitness enthusiasts.
