The packing box is designed for magnetic flip type. If you open the box, you can see the headset body. Honor xSport PRO and Honor 20 Youth Edition have a similar gradient design, it has three color options: red, gray and purple. Although gradient-designed phones have been common in recent years, they are still avantgarde on headphones. The unique gradient painting process injects smart colors into the headphones, and the colorful and dynamic CD texture metal back cover also adds sports fashion elements.

Compared with the previous generation of Honor xSport, Honor xSport PRO earplugs changed to semi-ear design, ear braces offer shark fin and N-shaped. Although the shape of ear braces is different, but wear stability is also excellent, headphones factory equipped with 6 different sizes of ear braces, can meet the needs of most people.

In addition, the back of the Honor xSport PRO earplug is equipped with a Hall magnet switch, which automatically disconnects the Bluetooth connection when the headset is closed, and can quickly restore the connection state after opening. This design is not only very practical, but also can effectively save the power of headphones and increase the life span.

For in-ear and semi-in-ear headphones, which is better has not been a clear conclusion, it all depends on personal preferences. The two focus on different has their own unique advantages, in-ear headphones have a better passive noise reduction effect, less interference by the outside world; semi-in-ear headphones have higher comfort, suitable for long-term wear, but also more suitable for use in sports.

Part of the wire, Honor xSport PRO uses nylon wire headset wire, this kind of wire is not easy to wrap. Neck hanging part of the cable using nickel-titanium alloy memory metal material, can be easily folded and can be quickly restored to the original state; external wrapped skin-friendly silica gel, wear can perfectly fit the neck, comfort performance is good.

 

The battery and wire control module between the neck hanging part and the headphone wire are symmetrical designed to ensure the balance of the center of gravity when wearing. The left part is the location of the built-in battery, and the right side is the wire control and Type-C plug. Honor xSport PRO combines the Type-C connector with the headphone wire control.

Honor xSport PRO Function

Honor xSport PRO supports Type-C flash charging, 18-hour battery life, low game latency and other features, adding a number of selling points to Honor xSport PRO.

 

First of all, let's talk about Type-C Flash connection, which is the most attractive feature for me. The Honor xSport PRO mentioned earlier uses a Type-C connector, which can be connected directly to a mobile phone with a charging port of Type-C. And its HUAWEI HiPair flash connection technology makes the screen immediately pop-up window prompt Bluetooth connection, one-step completion of Bluetooth pairing, greatly reducing the tedious steps of the first Bluetooth pairing.

However, the feature only supports Huawei EMUI 9.1, Honor Magic UI 2.1 and above Type-C interface devices, while other phones can only use the traditional Bluetooth pairing method. The function can be used perfectly on Honor 20, which is very convenient and fast.

 

In terms of flash charging, Type-C connectors are also used in devices that support OTG and reverse charging, and can be replenished anytime, anywhere, without the need for power and charging lines. What must be said is the flash charge speed of the Glory xSport PRO, which can be used continuously for 4 hours in just 5 minutes, keeping the music with you all the time.

 

In terms of battery life, the Honor xSport PRO uses a 120mAh battery, which officials claim can be used for 18 hours of music playback or 12 hours of voice calls, as well as its fast charging features, coupled with its use of a lower power Bluetooth chip. There is no problem using it for a week on the way to and from work.

 

Bluetooth delay aspect, Honor xSport PRO supports audio Bluetooth low delay transmission technology for the first time in honorable headphones. In game scenarios, the "low delay" mode is automatically switched, which greatly reduces the problem of sound and picture misalignment.

 

Dustproof and waterproof, Honor xSport PRO support IP55 class, a small amount of dust, splash, sports sweat, dry, will not affect the normal work of the product.

 

In terms of call noise reduction and windproof noise, the microphone cavity structure of, Honor xSport PRO adopts a unique windproof noise structure, which can effectively eliminate the strong wind blowing into the microphone hole, thus reducing the wind noise generated during running or cycling. And call noise reduction technology has long been popular in Bluetooth headphones, even in a noisy environment can deal with very well.

 

Wire control, Honor xSport PRO uses a three-key wire control, through the operation of function keys and volume keys can easily control music playback and voice calls, the operation logic is the same as most of the Bluetooth headphones on the market.

 

Firmware aspect, Honor xSport PRO can make firmware updates in Bluetooth device settings in EMUI phones.
