Huawei has released its latest TWS Bluetooth earbuds — the FreeBuds Pro 2 — in the Philippines.

The FreeBuds Pro 2 will retail for PhP 9,999 via Huawei’s Shopee and Lazada shops, online stores, authorized retail outlets.

The device will be available in Silver Blue, Ceramic White, and Silver Frost, with an installment payment option.

ANC 2.0: Creating a quiet world

The latest earbuds feature an adaptive active noise cancellation (ANC) technology, along with the original integrated call noise cancellation to enable users to dynamically listen to their preferred music or content.

This intelligent ANC 2.0 takes what noise cancellation is capable of even further, as the FreeBuds Pro 2 can accurately identify and judge the external sound field environment with changes.

For instance, when a user is in the subway, the noise cancellation effects deepen and reduces severe low-frequency noise. In contrast, when in coffee shops, the ANC intelligently adapts. In any case, the earbuds keep users immersed to whatever they’re listening to.

On top of this innovative technology, the FreeBuds Pro 2 has up to 30 hours of playback time, thanks to its 580mAh charging case. Boosted by its 11mm driver, the earbuds is also rated IP 54 for splash, water, and dust resistance.

The new lineup of cases — built specifically for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max — are delectably minimalist. The orange polycarbonate frame with a PET backplate can both protect your new phone and dazzle while on the go. Plus, durable TPU bumpers saves your hardware from drops of up to 15 feet.

Meanwhile, dual lanyard slots will add convenience if you need both hands for something else. Also, if you’ve bought into Apple’s wireless charging system, the Nomad case is still compatible with the brand’s MagSafe products.

To complement your phone, the collection also has an Ultra Orange sports band for the 45mm Apple Watch and Watch Ultra. The band is both lightweight and durable to provide comfort and durability throughout the day.

The Nomad Ultra Orange iPhone 14 Pro case will retail for US$ 49.95. Meanwhile, the Ultra Orange Sport Band will retail for US$ 59.95. Both are limited edition and will start shipping in November. Pre-orders will grab an additional percent discount.
