How the price table works

As you know, the market is moving at very high speed, and our benchmarks follow suit. Crowned best quality / price ratio of headphones true wireless last December, the Jabra Elite 65t are now dethroned by a newcomer, the Huawei FreeBuds 4i. Tested at the end of March, these intras directly joined our buying guide dedicated to this type of product, and benefit from a serious advantage over the previous champion, active noise reduction.

Let it be clear from the outset, the FreeBuds 4i are far from being free from all faults. But they are displayed at less than 100 € and ensure the essential, namely sound performance and comfort of use. Even if their active noise reduction is not the flashiest, they are the only headphones true wireless to offer this much sought-after feature in this price range. Only the previous generation, the FreeBuds 3i, would be able to compete, but this model will disappear from the catalog, replaced by the 4i.

Besides their audio qualities, the FreeBuds 4i are the kings of endurance. Too bad the controls are so stingy on the headphones themselves and you can’t customize the controls on iOS.

Its advantages

  • Clear, detailed and dynamic sound
  • Very responsive bass, flattered without ever becoming boomy
  • Outstanding comfort and support
  • Excellent autonomy
  • Very compact storage case

What might hold you back

  • Lack of neutrality, slightly aggressive mids
  • Disappointing noise reduction
  • Poor voice capture in hands-free kit mode
  • Very few commands available on the earbuds, customization of controls not possible on iOS

As an alternative

When it comes to active noise reduction, the Sony WF-1000XM3 have been a pioneer in becoming the best wired headphones. They are of course much more expensive than the Freebuds 4i, but are also much more complete. In the same price range, the Apple AirPods Pro also seduced us last year, and will perfectly suit fans of the apple ecosystem.
