ByGB Blog Official 2019-03-13 3821

The Huawei Honor FlyPods Lite, like many recently released true wireless earbuds, seem to be inspired by the Apple AirPods. And, thus, most users would hopefully set their eyes on the FlyPods as a more affordable alternative to the fancy AirPods — and the one that does not fall far behind in build quality, design, battery life and, naturally, sound. In this post, we take a close look at the Huawei Honor FlyPods Lite to see if the earbuds offer the same level of comfort, quality of sound and general usage experience

Huawei Honor FlyPods Lite: design

No matter how much time you spend examining the FlyPods Lite, the verdict will remain the same: the earbuds look very similar to their Apple-made counterparts. But the earbuds are not identical (they do not aim to mimic Apple design as closely as the i12 TWS). The earbuds' tips are pointed and you will find the brand's name "Honor" written along the stem of the bud.

The charging case is also quite different from that on the AirPods. It's more elongated and quite bigger, giving each earphone more space in the case. Each earbud weighs about 5.5g and the set is available in robin blue, white and black.

Huawei Honor FlyPods Lite: key features

The first feature of note about Honor FlyPods Lite earbuds is super easy pairing. Once you open the earbuds' case, they will connect automatically to the last paired phone — and even the first-time setup would not take longer than 30 seconds. All you will need to do to pair the earphones for the first time is leave them in the box and press the pairing key.


One of the main highlights of most true wireless earbuds are the touch controls. And this is also the case for the Huawei Honor FlyPods Lite. You will be able to take charge of a whole variety of functions like adjusting the volume, skipping tracks, answering calls, etc. This makes using the earbuds wonderfully easy and convenient — and, with no wires in the way, you get unprecedented freedom of movement when working out.

Speaking of workouts, the Huawei Honor FlyPods Lite are IP54 waterproof and dustproof, which makes them an easy choice for outdoor exercise and even jogging in the rain or a beach outing.


Huawei Honor FlyPods Lite: sound performance

What defines sound quality of an earbud? In the most part, it's the build material and the size and quality of the audible unit. Then, there is voice training. The Huawei Honor FlyPods Lite adopt the 7mm dynamic ring speaker unit, which is a popular choice seen on other true wireless earbuds like, for instance, the Xiaomi Mi AirDots.


The Huawei Honor FlyPods Lite do quite well when it comes to the restoration of original sound. This results in a clear and resonant sound when listening to high pitch music with the highs, lows and mids brought out in equal measure.


Huawei Honor FlyPods Lite: comfort in the ear

If you are one to wear your earphones all day long, then comfort would definitely play a major part in your decision making process. The Huawei Honor FlyPods Lite use the in-ear design, which deliver the sound into your ear canal with more precision. With that, they are not as intrusive as some in-ear models and you should not feel any discomfort even after wearing them for a long time. With that, the earbuds stay durably in place even through a strenuous workout routine. The fact that the Huawei Honor FlyPods Lite only weigh 5.5 grams also adds to wear comfort as the earbuds do not feel heavy in the ear.

Huawei Honor FlyPods Lite: price and verdict

The Huawei Honor FlyPods Lite are available on GB for $75.99 on Flash Sale. The Apple AirPods, on the other hand, come with a much steeper price tag of $159. While there is a significant gap in dollars between the two models, we can't say that we have spotted a drastic difference in design, sound performance and overall quality. The Huawei Honor FlyPods Lite do what they promise to do quite well — and if you want to have a quality true wireless experience without breaking the bank, we would definitely recommend them.
