Following the cancellation of Mobile World Congress 2020, Huawei’s sub-brand, Honor, is today making online announcements of its devices. The company introduced the Honor View 30 Pro and the 9X Pro smartphones, and the Honor MagicBook laptop. In addition to these devices, the company has also launched the Honor Magic Earbuds, a true wireless earphone.
The firm is touting the earbuds as one that will ‘tune out distractions’ as it features the company’s Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation technology. The device’s Feedforward and Feedback microphones detect ambient and unwanted noise to aide in effective noise cancellation. Additionally, the earbuds offer improved hands-free calling thanks to the three dedicated microphones, including the two for noise cancellation. It employs a 10mm driver unit for improved base performance.
The device features one-tap instant setup, but it wouldn’t be surprising to know that the ability will only work with Honor phones. As expected, the buds will come with a charging case that can top up the earphone's batteries for 13 hours of music playback.
The earbuds are expected to be offered in Pearl White and Robin Egg Blue colors and will retail for €129 ($140). It is expected to hit the shelves in European markets starting in April 2020. With the device rivaling the offerings from the likes of Samsung, and Honor touting the noise cancellation prowess to be as good as the AirPods Pro, it will be interesting to see how well the claims stand true and if it proves to be a cheaper alternative to similarly priced wireless earbuds.
