The FreeBuds 4i comes in black, red, and white.

Huawei recently expanded its lineup of wireless headphones with the FreeBuds 4i. Now available to purchase globally, it offers great sound quality and a wide variety of features for less than £100.

If you like the look of the FreeBuds 4i and are thinking about getting a pair, one of the questions you might have is whether or not it’ll work with laptops. And the answer to that question is: yes, it does work with laptops. 

Because the FreeBuds 4i offers Bluetooth 5.2 technology, it’ll work with any device that supports this connectivity. So, if you own a Bluetooth 5.2-compatible laptop, you shouldn’t experience any issues connecting the FreeBuds 4i to it. 

Connecting the FreeBuds 4i to a compatible laptop is very easy and only takes a few short steps. Here they are:

  1. Firstly, put the FreeBuds 4i into the charging case and keep the case open. 
  2. Once you’ve placed the FreeBuds 4i in its charging case and opened the lid, you’ll need to click and hold down the function button for two seconds. At this point, the LED indicator should go green and start flashing white. This means the earbuds are now in pairing mode.
  3.  Now that the FreeBuds 4i is in pairing mode, you can go into the Bluetooth settings on your laptop and pair your laptop with the headphones. 
  4. When both devices are paired, you can begin using your FreeBuds 4i to listen to music, watch movies, and make calls on your laptop. 

Other features on the FreeBuds 4i 

While it’s great news that the FreeBuds 4i is capable of connecting to laptops, you might be questioning what else it can do. In this section, we’ll talk about some of the best features provided by the FreeBuds 4i.

The first thing you’ll notice about the FreeBuds 4i is its simple and stylish design. Both earbuds are sleek and lightweight, and they’ll fit comfortably into your ear thanks to an ergonomic shape. You can get the FreeBuds 4i in three color choices: Red, Carbon Black, and Ceramic White. 

As well as sporting a great design, the FreeBuds 4i also delivers impressive sound quality thanks to its 10 mm dynamic coil driver and sensitive polymer composite diaphragm. What’s more, it provides active noise canceling, artificial intelligence-powered noise reduction, an awareness mode, a dual-mic system, a slit-duct design for eradicating wind disturbance, and many other great audio features.

When using a pair of wireless in-ear headphones on the go, you don’t want it to suddenly run out of battery. But luckily, the Freebuds 4i offers 10 hours of music playback after a single charge, 22 hours with the charging case, and four hours following a 10-minute charge. 

Another great thing about the FreeBuds 4i is that it’s really easy to set up and use. After opening the charging case, you’ll see a pop-up message on your device asking if you’d like to connect it to the FreeBuds 4i. If you’ve already used the FreeBuds 4i with your device, it’ll automatically re-establish a connection after the charging case is opened.  

Additionally, the FreeBuds 4i sports easy-to-use touch controls for playing and pausing songs, answering and rejecting phone calls, as well as activating the active noise canceling and awareness modes.
