Offers decent value for money

from TrustedReviews

The Huawei Freelace are competent wireless headphones, but they do little to differentiate themselves in an increasingly competitive market.

Solid audio wrapped in a sleek design

The Huawei FreeLace’s integrated USB-C jack is a clever quirk that addresses a major peeve of wireless headphones - charging on the go. They also look great, are comfortably snug, sound better than you’d expect and can easily last 10-12 hours on a single charge. Though you’ll need a Huawei...More

The Huawei FreeLace’s integrated USB-C jack is a clever quirk that addresses a major peeve of wireless headphones - charging on the go. They also look great, are comfortably snug, sound better than you’d expect and can easily last 10-12 hours on a single charge. Though you’ll need a Huawei phone to make the most out of the features it offers.

Really good sound quality, super battery life

from Gizmo China

Overall, I’m quite impressed with the Huawei Freelace. Sure, these are not the only earphones on the market but I found them to be really comfortable to wear, sound quality is really good, battery life is superb and USB-C charging/fast pairing with the phone is an innovative and useful feature to have.

Great idea that falls short where it matters the most - sound and in-ear fit

The FreeLaces are very cool from a design and innovation point of view, thanks to their nifty charging mechanism. They also look and feel seriously premium – but that’s about all that’s good about them. The sound quality is lacking, the in-ear fit is really poor - consistently so amongst most reviewers we’ve sense checked our experiences with, and they are very picky when it comes to hardware they play nicely with from a software update point of view.

Good-looking workout ready wireless buds that lack a little oomph

from 9to5Google

At £99 in the UK or around $119, the Huawei FreeLace Bluetooth earbuds aren’t a terrible value proposition. If you happen to own a Huawei device, they are an almost perfect companion. The problem is that the sound quality is only a tiny bit above average at best.

Expert Reviews

Clever design but uninspiring sound

from Expert Reviews

The FreeLace provide a set of commendable features that set them apart from other Bluetooth earphones, especially if you own one of the company’s latest, greatest smartphones. However, the sound quality is disappointing and with plenty of excellent alternatives under £100, I’d give Huawei’s FreeLace a miss.

At least it’s better than the FreeBuds

The neckband design is sleek and comfortable and sound quality is surprisingly clear despite the favoring of bass frequencies and lack of high-quality codec support. Fit proves to be an issue due to the ear tip material and battery life falls short of the ambitious 18 hours claimed by Huawei. However, if you were disappointed by the FreeBuds from last year, the FreeLace offer a bit more promise.

Solid sound wrapped in a great design

from Tom's Guide

Even without a matching Huawei phone, you'll like the FreeLace's usability, design and audio power if you can get a hold of them. It's not perfect in any one category, but as long as you're not bothered by the odd imperfection, these headphones will serve you well.
