Hi there.

In Finland this time of a year is mostly rain, so I can not use my Sony headphones with Bluetooth outside. Wired earphones are breaking, and I always swap them from warranty. I am tired of it.

I need your help to continue listening Deezer Premium in the loudest rain.

My aim is to purchase best Bluetooth earphones like Huawei models.

Huawei FreeBuds 3i which sells at €99 price point in DNA storage (my mobile provider).

I need them with noise cancelation as these Momentum earbuds from Sennheiser will take all the noise inside your music. Perhaps you can help us with this decision? What’s your favourite in the market? Perhaps you have months of experience with them? Let me know.

Whatever knowledge you have, write your chest out, or do you have anything else to suggest?

They should also be minimal and tiny, easy to use, and fast charge for a hour in minutes.

Because once I tune in to my Deezer Premium, I can listen for hours.

Thank you.

I love my Bose headphones!!!!

Thank you, what is the model and why do you love them so much?

I am for now on hold. Perhaps I wait when my current earphones will die, swap them from warranty to this wireless item, in this YouTube video. I could save money. Inside my current earphones €70.

Is not a big deal to use them to the end and swap from warranty.

Looking for suggestions and then on time I can make better purchase.

Oh wow @hpguru Rafael's headphones are really good. We have zoom calls together and the sound is brilliant. He let me have a good in the office too, it's very premium. The price is the worst bit, they're quite expensive. @Rafael. what's the model?

And what about Bluetooth earphones, without the cable?

I’ve seen them in a bus, someone was wearing, and I am interested now.

Honor Flypods

I mean who doesn’t like them? No cables at all.

AE2, got it a long time ago. It was my first experience with a noise-cancelling headphone and I got attached to it! 

The sound is so clear and the mic is amazing!

Thanks Rafael.

I have similar to them Sony WH-1000XM3 which I do not like to use outside in rain or winter snow.

They will run out of warranty and they are €299 pair to waste. They are also bad outside because they take so much of a space and they do not honestly fit inside my tiny minimalist bag.

They are also hot inside the cups when in 20+ Celsius summer.

Today I visited my mobile provider, DNA shop, and bought Huawei Earbuds i3.

Seller said that this may be the best decision to get for that money (budget was €100).

99€ I was getting what I wanted, perhaps I will review them shortly here if anyone is interested.

I hope this will work.

My problem with Sennheiser Momentum earbuds is:

  • Cable is always on the road.
  • I need to swap them from warranty every 3-4-5-6 months, another earbud is no sound. Swap is free, but I am wasting time traveling to that store and swapping every 3-4-5-6 mo.
  • When I get them from pocket etc. I need to solve cable which is ridiculously time consuming. And these are not noise canceling, so almost everything can be heard outside.

This is why I am now happy DNA customer with €99 Huawei Freebuds i3.

I bought it in black because I think white will keep dirt on them.

I've got the Urbanista Paris model, @hpguru I really like them. But for noise cancellation, they have recently released the London model which seems really good.

The cool thing about Urbanista headphones is that they feel very Premium but the price isn't too high :wink:

But now that you mention Huawei, have you seen the FreeBuds Pro? It's insane!

Yes, I’ve seen Huawei FreeBuds at DNA shop yesterday.

He said that if I have only €100 to spend with my budget, this is the pair to go.

Like I said it was €99 item and I plan to review it. Perhaps I review shortly them now.

Seller didn’t recommend ANY model without active noise cancelation. I said to him, I would not accept anything less. On my Sony big headphones Bluetooth on and Noise Cancelation on nothing can be heard. This earbud does not work this good, but again you are not paying €299 for that.

Noise cancelation is not bad either. It easily removes 30 decibels of excess sound.

I use them now almost all the time when in bus, traveling to work and back, and also at work too to listen my music on Deezer Premium. The only bad thing about them, cable is not black. The earphones and case are. I had plenty of black cables, so it wasn’t a big deal. I didn’t lose my sleep.

Sound. It is very bassy. If you do not like bass, or perhaps too much of it, recommended to look elsewhere for more stable sound. Pairing is fast and in my honest test with Deezer Premium on my phone: playing time with earphones full is about 2,5 hours with noise cancelation.

You can get three hours of sound everything off. Sound awareness is good if you want to hear some of important sounds, like people talking around you. Honestly they do work the best with your phone on the go. With fully charged case you can charge them for 4 times at the most.

Deezer Premium and Huawei FreeBuds i3

With 15 minutes chargering time you can get extra hour of Deezer Premium. And this is good because 2,5 hours of a playback is not very impressive. Recommended to charge them in case everywhere when possible and then put before bed time reading to charge the case.

You’ll have energy for next day.

The case is full in about 2 hours, and earphones in about one hour.

Huawei Earbuds Freebuds i3 is a bit plastic feel in hands, and it indeed looks average, but they sound great. Anything is not falling or breaking either, so I think you can go with them for months. I recommend them if you hate cables, or you do not want to take big expensive headphones with you Bluetooth available. Mine are €299 pair of Sony, do not want to lose them.

Or to get them broken because of rain. They also take too much of a space.

These do almost same work, and are water resistant. The noise cancelation isn’t the same thing, but they do block most of the sounds. With buttons you can for pause or skip tracks (can be set on both side, for your favourite thing to do). Long press will change from off to noise cancelation and that to awareness mode. For laptop use it is suitable as well, but not the first thing I use on it.

In my tests they are not scratching, and Bluetooth connection is stable, even if phone is in different room or your pocket. The only problem you will get, if you go too far from them.

I think this is important to save your ability to hear. On my Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear in loud places like buses, I needed to listen at volume 12/15 in my phone, now 10/15 is enough. I do not need to increase it in ANY situation thanks to great noise cancelation. You can save your hearing.

Not only that: you can save your time from swapping earphones with broken cable all the time.

Warranty is good, but what about pair of earphones with no cables at all?

For 99 price point this is good item, and voice call quality is astonishing. No one complained even if I did call from outside with noisy wind next to me. Perhaps these may be good for your Deezer Premium as well? I hope this helped someone, and I did try to post one photo about them, thanks.

This is best buy for price, “hot dog of the town”, with every breath I take despite of plastic.

At least I can get that extra hour of Hard Dance on Deezer Premium w/ fast 15 minutes charge.
