Huawei Freebuds Pro Review – Are these the best ANC earphones? And how do they compare to the Freebuds 3?

During the Huawei developer conference most people were hoping for a Huawei Mate 40 announcement, at least the Kirin 9000 launch. However, these are sadly delayed, so Huawei appeased our needs with the launch of the Huawei Freebuds Pro, Huawei Watch GT Pro, and a refresh of their laptops. I reviewed the Freebuds 3 last year, while I am not a fan of the open fit design, I did love them (when pair with eartips), and have continued to use them throughout 2020. So how much of an improvement are the Huawei Freebuds Pro? Huawei Freebuds Pro White +...
