You heard of a dress watch. Now meet what could possibly be the dress headphones. I know, it’s not a thing… yet, but the Huawei FreeBuds Lipstick may have started this new category.
As the product name suggests, Huawei FreeBuds Lipstick is a pair of true wireless earbuds that mimics the look of lipstick. Why? Well because Huawei can. Huawei said it is “making a new trend in ultra-chic design.”
The lipstick-design case boasts a “luxury-grade” stainless-steel body that is a result of 30 intricately engineered design processes before being polished mirror-like finished.
The cosmetic themed is not limited to the looks; each Huawei FreeBuds Lipstick comes in a scented gift box too. Why? I have absolutely no idea.
Of course, this being Huawei, it is not all about aesthetics. The hot rod red FreeBuds found inside the lipstick-style case not only perfectly mimics the lipstick’s candelilla wax but also packs one of the biggest drivers in the earphone: a large 14.3 mm LCP dynamic driver.
This driver boasts a frequency range of up to 40 kHz and promised to let you experience “soaring melodies and rich timbres.”
Moreover, each earbud is blessed with its own bass-enhancing engine for deeper bass before rounding up with adaptive ear-matching technology that optimizes sound quality based on the unique shape of your ears.
The built-in active noise cancellation found on this pair of TWS works in conjunction with the latter to apply a customized noise cancellation effect which Huawei said achieves greater precision in reducing low-frequency environmental noises.
The Huawei FreeBuds Lipstick TWS Earbuds is available now in China for 1,699 yuan (around US$266). It is also being sold in Japan for 21,780 yen and in select EU countries for €229-249.90.
