Not only that, but the recent release of the FreeBuds 5i set the company’s own bar higher than ever. Find out if these newest mid-tier buds are worth your cash in our HUAWEI FreeBuds 5 review.

About this HUAWEI FreeBuds 5 review: I tested the HUAWEI FreeBuds 5 over a period of nine days. The earbuds ran firmware version F001H003C90. I used a OnePlus 9 Pro running OxygenOS 13.0 and Android 13 with HUAWEI AI Life app version HarmonyOS 3.0.0.136. The unit was provided by HUAWEI for this review.
