Nowadays, many manufacturers have canceled the 3.5mm headphone jack on smartphones, which boost the rapid development of Bluetooth earphones, Apple’s AirPods is one of them. However, the AirPods are designed for iOS users, and there are not so many good Bluetooth earphones can compete with it in a long time in the Android group. But recently, some big Chinese companies such as Xiaomi and Huawei have rolled out some popular Bluetooth earphones, like Xiaomi Mi AirDots, and HUAWEI Honor FlyPods. Today, we are talking about the latter.
The HUAWEI Honor FlyPods Bluetooth earphones not only have a stylish appearance but also have powerful battery performance and wireless charging. What’s more, the high-end version adopts Bone Voice ID technology. Now, let’s take a look at it.
Stylish design, IP54 dustproof and waterproof
In design, the Honor FlyPods series is very similar to the Apple AirPods, but it has more color options. As we can see, most of the earphones are white, black, or gray, like the AirPods. Although, they are mainstream colors, it lacks personality, as most of Bluetooth earphone users are young people. However, it has been changed on this Honor FlyPods, which has 3 new color options: Suzuki White, Mockingbird Blue, and Glamour Red. Despite this, although the Honor FlyPods are not professional sports earphones, it’s IP 54 dustproof and waterproof, which is enough for your daily use.
Semi-in-ear design: comfortable to wear
Ergonomically designed, semi-in-ear with a swan neck design for a comfortable and secure fit. Long term use of in-ear headphones will inevitably lead to discomfort. However, the Honor FlyPods series adopt semi-in-ear design, which is more comfortable to wear even if you wear it for a long time. What’s more, its swan neck design makes the earphones more fit for users’ auricle and more stable.
Similar to the Apple AirPods, the Honor FlyPods also have multiple openings and sensors, which helps it achieve a variety of induction operations and gesture control. The bottom is a metal contact, which can be recharged with a charging box. In addition, the handles of the Honor FlyPods Series are flat, which is different from the cylindrical handle. The weight of a single headset is only 4.1 g, so it’s very comfortable to wear when you are running or make a phone call during the driving.
Easy for storage, wireless charging and long battery life
In addition, the Honor FlyPods series also has a very practical charging box. The charging boxes and earphones are made of polycarbonate, which gives you a bright texture of piano paint. There is a LED indicator light in the charging boxes. And there are four more LED lights outside of the Honor FlyPods charging box, so you can easily see the electric state.
There is a type-C interface at the bottom of the Honor FlyPods series, so you don’t need to take one extra cable to charge for it, as you can charge it with the phone cable. Interestingly, the Honor FlyPods series also supports wireless charging. Of course, it needs a wireless charging base. If you happen to be using the Huawei Mate 20 Pro smartphone, you can charge it directly.
In terms of endurance, the battery capacity of a single earphone of the Honor FlyPods series is 25 mAh. It can play music for about 3 hours or talk for about 2.5 hours at a time. Coupled with a 420mAh charging box, the Honor Flypods can achieve up to 20 hours of music playback or 15 hours of talk time. Moderate use requires no charge for at least two or three days. And when we don’t use it, we can put it in a charging box. Since it’s a headset, we certainly can’t ignore its sound quality, if it’s too bad, no matter how cool it is and no matter how many features, it won’t be accepted by consumers. The Honor FlyPods hardware features a 13mm moving coil unit acoustic design. It perfectly restores HD sound quality for music players. At the same time, this headset supports HWA HD Bluetooth audio transfer protocol. You should know that HWA HD Bluetooth audio transfer protocol HWA is a new Bluetooth standard released by Huawei in the first half of 2018.
The HWA standard IHDC coding and decoding refers to the transmission of audio files to hi-res level through the existing Bluetooth A2DP protocol. You can enjoy a near-lossless music experience in a wireless state. In terms of real experience, the Honor FlyPods series tends to favor pop songs. The control of the tenor is in place. Its voice is crisp and comfortable. It is very suitable for listening to music on the way. The Honor FlyPods series is equipped with two MEMS microphones. Paired with noise reduction techniques, it can effectively reduce the noise around. The quality of the conversation is also good.
There’s one thing I really like about the Apple AirPods. The first is the automatic connection of devices. The second point is that it will show the power of the device after connection. The Honor FlyPods series also has these elements. The charging box has a Bluetooth connection button. The cell phone pairing can be done once. Open the lid and it will automatically connect. The operation is very simple. At the same time, the Honor FlyPods Series automatically connects the mobile phone, and the phone will show the electric state.
Easy to operate
The Honor FlyPods gesture interaction is also very nice. It has improved based on earphones like Apple’s AirPods. For example, we can double-click on the left headset to wake up the smart assistant. Double-click the headset on the right to pause or turn on the music playback.
However, we often live in a very noisy or quiet environment, which is not convenient to use the voice function at this time. The gesture control solved this problem very well. Finally, it is important to mention that Honor FlyPods can not only be used on Honor phonesorAndroid phones. Even the IOS devices can operate it. For example, when using an iPhone, we can wake up Siri with “Hello YOYO”.
This Honor FlyPods series not only has a fashionable and humanistic design, but it has wireless charging, LED indicator light, IP54 level dustproof, waterproof and awesome interactive experience. The price is just $146.25, which is really cost-effective. If you’re an Android user and want to look for a distinctive Bluetooth earphone that is good in appearance, comfortability, functionality and portability, the Huawei Honor FlyPods series are your best choice.
