Differences between HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 and FreeBuds Lite

Let's first look at the important differences between the two headphones in detail.

Battery life

A big difference is the battery life. The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 have a battery life of up to 4 hours. In connection with the Case even up to 20 hours. The HUAWEI FreeBuds Lite offer only 3 hours. Also with the Case the battery life is only 12 hours, which is a clear difference.


FreeBuds 3 is also ahead in the loading time. For one hour running time, FreeBuds 3 needs 15 minutes loading time. The FreeBuds Lite needs 20 minutes loading time for one hour.

Both headphones are charged via USB. The FreeBuds Lite offers only Micro-USB. With FreeBuds 3, HUAWEI offers you USB-C and the option to charge wirelessly.

Noise Caneling (ANC)

In contrast to the FreeBuds Lite, the FreeBuds 3 ANC. This makes the headphones stand out a lot and is a big argument for the bigger model - HUAWEI FreeBuds 3*.


The FreeBuds 3 offers the newer standard here as well. With Bluetooth 5.1 you get a much more stable and better connection. The HUAWEI FreeBuds Lite have only Bluetooth in version 4.2.

Similarities of the headphones

Both headphones also have a few things in common, which are worth mentioning:
  • Both offer mono mode (right and left can be used separately)
  • Not waterproof
  • No interchangeable attachments

Which headphone is better?

Clearly the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3* is the better choice. You get the latest technology and therefore a much better performance. I would not recommend the FreeBuds Lite*.

The battery life is a good argument. But especially ANC and Bluetooth 5.1 should be the decisive purchase criteria for the FreeBuds 3*.
