Honor Earbuds 3i Brings Pro Features At A Cheaper Price But It’s From Huawei


Honor’s launch event dubbed “The big Honor event” is a two day launch event that began on the 23rd of November 2022 and it is expected to end the next day 24th of November. The first day of the event saw the launch of the Honor Magic Vs foldable smartphone and the Honor 80 series of smartphones.

Honor also launched another product that is worth talking about. It is the Honor Earbuds 3i which brings some pro level features for just $70 price tag. The Honor Earbuds 3i comes with some great features such as Active Noice Cancelation, AI Noice reduction plus a top-notch battery life which is enough to take you through the whole day.Honor Earbuds 3i

Specs Of The The Honor Earbuds 3i

The new Honor Earbuds 3i comes with 10mm dynamic driver that fits into the small looking design of the earbuds. During the event, the CEO describe the design with the word “pebble looks” on several occasions. The Earbuds 3i comes with a very sleek looking design in the White-only color option.

The earbuds features three microphones which should be just enough to give you clear voice calls. It also has touch sensitivity for easy controls and a wear detection sensor. The Honor Earbuds 3i also supports low latency mode for gaming. But this mode drains the battery quickly. Honor Earbuds 3i

Gizchina News of the week


Each earbud features a 55mAh battery while the charging case also packs-in 410mAh battery. Honor stated that you can use the earbuds for 10 good hours on a single charge. And the device can charge from 0 to 100 within 60 minutes. However, this device lacks wireless charging so you have only one option for charging. That is through the USB-C charging port.

The Honor Earbuds 3i Looks Very Familiar

For a price of just $70, this looks like a real good deal. But the design of the charging case, the earbuds itself and the features reminds me of an earbud from Huawei. That is the Huawei Freebuds 4i. The Freebuds 4i was launched about 3 years ago. And it’s quite difficult to tell the difference if you just take a glance at both of them. Huawei Freebuds 4i

Oh, there is a difference. One has Honor description on the case and the other has Huawei. Huawei’s version also came with different colors to choose from while Honor’s version has only one color being the White. With the Huawei Freebuds 4i, you could get White, Black, Red and Grey. But that’s not the case with Honor Earbuds 3i.

I have personally tested the Freebuds 4i and it works so well, especially with the Active Noise Canceling. So there is no doubt that the Honor Earbuds 3i will also produce better overall performance for this price tag.

The Honor Earbuds 3i connects via Bluetooth 5.2. But to enjoy the full features, you may have to download the Honor Smart Space app. Currently the Honor Earbuds 3i is open for pre-order in the China store for CNY499 ($70/€67). It will go on sale on December 2.
