Whether you work in a lively office, have to bike through traffic-filled streets or just want to enjoy your running soundtrack without completely blocking out your workout buddies, open-ear headphones can be invaluable. Unfortunately, their design isn’t always the best – they can be bulky and conspicuous, meaning they can’t do double-duty when you’re on your way to meet mates at a club. Lucky for you then that HUAWEI’s FreeClip is here to change all that with its trail-blazing C-bridge Design.

After three years of research, optimisation and refinement in hardware, materials and aesthetics, HUAWEI’s R&D experts created the FreeClip, the next generation of open-ear earbuds design. Allowing you to enjoy your tunes without blocking your hearing in busy environments, it offers a much more discrete listen than bone-conduction headphones and yet its dual-magnet high-sensitivity drivers ensure you’ll always get powerful sound quality.

However, the most cutting-edge feature of the HUAWEI FreeClip is its innovative C-bridge Design. Kickstarting a brand new era of Open-ear Listening tech, it has unlocked a whole new generation of comfort, style and connectivity for true wireless earbud users. Here are just a handful of its strengths.

Many open-ear headphones focus entirely on functionality at the expense of making a good-looking product. Instead, HUAWEI’s C-bridge Design is fashion-forward, offering something you’d be as happy wearing on a night out as on your daily commute. Unlike other open-ear earphones, HUAWEI FreeClip don’t feature unsightly headbands or bulky earpieces – they’re discrete and chic, with their minimalist spherical shape, well-decorated C-shaped radians, and the bean-shape behind them making them look more like a fashion accessory than a chunky earpiece.


Not only is the C-bridge Design comfortable but this comfort is backed up by science. HUAWEI’s engineers conducted research on over 10,000 global human ear data to create the most ergonomic design possible, ensuring that everything including its size, the angle of its curve and its clamping force would provide optimum comfort when you wear the FreeClip.

But the C-bridge’s design isn’t just skin deep: there’s also plenty of innovation under the surface as well. Its built-in 9-core wires ensure that your listening experience is clearer and interactive experience is smoother. Meanwhile, the high-performance nickel-titanium (Ni-Ti) shape-memory alloy that the C-bridge is made of ensures it flexes and dissipates clamping force. This increases the HUAWEI FreeClip’s comfort even further and prevents any twinges even during lengthy listening sessions.


Thanks to its Ni-Ti alloy and architecture, the C-bridge Design is both pliable and yet durable. On top of being able to endure drops and dings, this means it also offers excellent grip. So whether you’re biking along city streets or doing squats and aerial yoga at the gym, you can be sure it will stay put without the need for unsightly over-ear hooks.
