The market for truly wireless earphones is getting more competitive by the days. In the last two years, we saw a huge increase in this segment with many smartphone makers launching products to compete in this fight. Interestingly enough, the market of the so-called hearables is along with smartwatches moving forward the industry and achieving good numbers while the overall smartphone market suffered from COVID-19 disruption in sales and demand. Back in May, Huawei’s Honor unveiled a set of X1 TWS earbuds that came to be an affordable alternative of the Honor Magic Earbuds. Today, the very same accessory is up for sale in Europe at an affordable price of €35 carrying Honor Choice TWS earbuds moniker.
According to the company, the Honor Choice Earbuds are a key part of the “Seamless AI Life”. According to the company, the new accessory comes to reinforce the company’s commitment to this particular niche. As per specifications, the Choice TWS comes with a 7mm driver and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity for 130ms low latency. Other interesting details include the IP54 certification for water and dust resistance. Last but not least, users will be happy with the support for touch and voice controls. The earbuds boast noise cancellation outside of the rubber tips. It should help users to experience a clean sound with no disruption in the quality.
Honor states that its new earbuds can last up to 6 hours of music playback on a single charge or four hours of call time. Moreover, the company states that the Honor Choice TWS charging cal can hold up to “three rounds of full charge”. Hence, users can expect a total “combined playback” time of 24 hours before you need to recharge the earbuds and the case. While that is good battery life, there is a small catch. You will only experience this amount if the volume is set to 50%.
According to the company, the earbuds’ 7nm drivers will produce “clear vocals with clean deep bass”. Users will see the benefits of this hardware at medium and high-pitched frequencies. The earbuds also have an impedance of 16 ohms, for reference. There are four microphones on board making use of Digital Sign Processing technology in order to minimize background noise. Unfortunately, there’s no active noise cancellation. The feature is available on the company’s Magic Earbuds. However, the Magic TWS cost much more than this one here.
European customers can purchase it straight from Aliexpress or Cdiscount in France.
