Honor is presently an independent trademark name that is cost-free to present its extremely own products without the assistance of a mother and fathers company like Huawei.

We recently acquired their Earbuds 2 Lite for testimony in addition to they included a great deal of promises – Energetic Sound Termination, 32- human resources battery life in addition to a tiny expense.

We acquired the tool in Glacier White color, inspected all its highlights, as well as additionally prepare to report what delighted us as well as additionally what truly did not.

Honor Earbuds 2 Lite review


The Honor Earbuds 2 Lite included a rectangle-shaped circumstances that has a USB-C port under in addition to a physical technique on the side, used for affixing to new devices. As prepared for, there is no cordless payment provided, nevertheless Honor is supplying 5V/3A cable within the retail box.

Taking the buds out of the circumstances, we see they are instead similar to the Huawei Freebuds 4i, although these company disappear with each various other, a minimum of in theory. After extra assessment we discovered they are not just lookalikes, they are specifically the identical, to the millimeter.

What Honor truly did refrain from doing as fantastic is the suggests the earbuds fit within the circumstance. Both company have a magnet ready near all-time low to help the stem in its port, yet Honor’s positioning truly feels uncommon with the bud experiencing the person while the stem is much better away. We would absolutely’ve enjoyed to see the earphones rest closer within the situation yet that would certainly have actually endangered the interior layout, permitting the enormous battery boost.

It would certainly take hefty training as well as a lot of muscular tissue memory to be adjusted due to the fact that there is no very easy method to place the bud from the ear right into the instance with a solitary activity of the hand.

A minimum of the Earbuds 2 Lite are very comfy in the ear, certainly when incorporated with the best set of rubber ideas. They have a touch sensing unit outside for motions and also a lot of microphones to guarantee phone calls are simple and easy on both sides of the discussion.

There’s additionally a sensing unit within the inward-facing microphone that discovers when among the buds is removed as well as stops briefly songs or video clip.


The earbuds are a typical Bluetooth device, suggesting they can be attached to essentially any kind of various other gadget. To obtain all the additional attributes, customers require to download and install the Huawei AI Life application.

Because this is a rather brand-new item we discovered we required the extra current application variation discovered on Huawei’s AppGallery to make them function. We intend the application variation on Google Play will certainly quickly capture up.

The distinction the application offers the Earbuds 2 Lite is control of the motions – Double-Tap can be personalized for any one of the buds, while the various other readily available faster way is Touch & Hold which defaults to Noise control.

Mentioning sound control, this is where Honor did a terrific task – applying the ANC. Individuals can cycle with “Recognition”, “Off”, and also “Sound terminating”, and also any one of them can be eliminated from the checklist with the application.

While the initial one is evident – it triggers the external mics to aid individuals in browsing simply put communications, the 2nd choice “Off” is the default one. The sound termination does an excellent work and also a significant rival to the Earbuds 2 Lite is its double – the Freebuds 4i. We ought to mention that the ANC functions if the bud is resting conveniently in the ear canal – if it relocates, it jeopardizes the entire experience.


An additional solid side of the Earbuds 2 Lite is the battery. Each bud holds a 55 mAh cell, while the circumstance includes 410 mAh extra. Honor computes the overall battery life of 32 hrs of paying attention experience. This does not consist of the moment it considers the buds to reenergize while in the event, naturally. Billing the buds is actually fast, and also the instance itself additionally can obtain juice quick, offered the wire is combined with the ideal adapter.

Constant playback on a solitary fee is marketed at 10 hrs with ANC off and also quantity at 50%. We do not sustain paying attention to songs for such an extended period of time, yet did it, for this evaluation. We were pleased the Earbuds 2 Lite matched the assumptions on a non-Honor smart device – virtually 10 hrs.

Transforming the ANC on and also enhancing the quantity will absolutely lead to reduced battery life, with every little thing maxed out still offering us over 4 hrs of audio enjoyable. Reenergizing is additionally fast; our tip, based upon experience and also screening several TWS earphones, is to bill the situation whenever there’s a chance, rather than making use of all the battery life till the last decline of power, and after that battling to discover an electrical outlet.

Sound high quality

The large concern regarding non-expensive earphones is constantly regarding audio high quality. Honor Earbuds 2 Lite featured 10 mm vibrant coil vehicle drivers that bring a perfectly placed clear noise that matches the cost classification.

Laid-back songs audiences, podcast fanatics, and also workaholics on the move would absolutely enjoy these buds as a result of the steady link and also satisfying audio. Regretfully, the AI Life does not supply any type of equalizer whatsoever, so the customer needs to count on the built-in, supplied the gadget has one. Discussing steady link, the Earbuds 2 Lite can link to 2 various tools in addition to can quickly change from one to an additional, depending upon which is playing. This is many thanks to the Bluetooth 5.2 connection that additionally makes it possible for very easy established from one individual to an additional.

Despite having the battery occupying the majority of the internals of the earbud, there suffices equipment to supply sufficient trebles and also lows. And also because we stay in a pandemic, there’s constantly a mask before the mouth – the Earbuds 2 Lite still grab every little thing, and also the stem is not as well lengthy to be in the means of the mask’s bands.

Final Thought

We were currently thrilled with the Huawei Freebuds 4i, as well as the Honor Earbuds 2 Lite simply strengthened our judgment. These earphones are terrific as a result of the reality that they give a good noise, among the very best ANC in this cost group, as well as additionally the battery life, in addition to the billing abilities, are excellent.

There’s just one significant concern with the Earbuds 2 Lite, likewise offered as Earbuds 2 SE in China – their schedule. Honor is still creating its independent sales network in addition to we had a difficult time locating the earbuds available for sale online. Ultimately, we located them in Malaysia for MYR299(or MYR269 for the early risers), which converts to around $70, which seems like a reasonable rate of what you get.
