A new player has entered the wireless earphones market, and it has definitely caught our eye with its super glamourous design and striking colour combination of red, black and gold. The HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick delivers luxury on both the style and sound front, which is perfect for fashion-forward audiophiles who don’t want to be spotted with the same pair of earbuds as everyone else.

Ahead of the exclusive product launch (we hear that stocks are super limited!) on 12 December, we got the chance to take a closer look at the HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick and here’s what we think.

Read on for some unique features of the HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick! 

#1 Designed to stand out

Taking inspiration from the famed Champs-Élysées in Paris, the casing is made with 316L stainless steel - a corrosion-resistant metal often used in high-end watches and accessories - for a sleek, smooth mirror surface. 

My first impression? Besides being aesthetically pleasing, the cube design and rounded edges of the lipstick-shaped casing make for a very comfortable grip. Combined with the steel’s heft, it’s very telling that these earbuds are of premium quality.

What makes a luxury product stand out is the level of detail in its design, and in the case of the HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick, I was impressed with how the magnetic mechanism allows me to open and close the case with one hand, and even swings the earbuds into their correct placements within the case!

#2 Superior sound

With a large 14.3mm LCP dynamic driver and bass-enhancing engine inside each earbud, the HUAWEI Freebuds Lipstick is no slouch in the audio department either. You can expect crisp audio quality, with its frequency range of up to 40kHz and greater bass generating capabilities. 

#3 Comfortable fit that doesn’t compromise on noise cancellation

HUAWEI studied over 10,000 human ear models and identified 8 areas where earphones exert pressure to come up with an ergonomic design. The end result? Light earphones - weighing only at 4.1g - that fit snugly into your ears.

Not only is the open-fit design of the FreeBuds Lipstick a super comfortable alternative for those who don’t like in-ear earbuds, it’s also more sanitary - especially for those with wet earwax. And with active noise cancellation (ANC) capabilities, you wouldn’t have to lift a finger for optimal noise cancellation performance, even if you’re going from a crowded train to a quiet street.

#4 Powerful battery life of up to 22 hours*

Here’s what you need to know about the FreeBuds Lipstick’s battery life: the earbuds give you 4 hours of playback on a full charge and 22 hours of playback with a fully charged case. Just 15 minutes of charging is enough to give you 2.5 hours of playback, and yes - wireless charging is supported.

#5 Smart pairing and gestures

If you work with multiple devices, you’d definitely appreciate the earbuds’ ability to connect to two separate devices simultaneously, which allows for seamless listening. And don’t worry about pairing if you’re using HUAWEI, Android or PC systems - there will be an auto pop-up on your devices for the FreeBuds Lipstick. 

Another useful smart feature is the shortcut control. Double-tap to play, pause, or answer a call, touch and hold for ANC and swipe up or down on the stem of the earbuds to adjust the volume. 

#6 A special unboxing experience
