Just info, i never tried Airpods Pro & other premium TWS. I own Fiil T1 Lite and Huawei Freebuds Pro. Freebuds Pro sounds more muffled & kinda dark sounding. The Bass is nice, but the upper bass is too emphasized, making the bass bleed over the vocal. The Vocal is actually pretty good, but i prefer a little more boosted upper mid too make the sounds more engaging. The Treble is too tamed or too smooth for my taste, i really have to EQ the Treble section by boosting it pretty far to be enjoyable for my taste. The Soundstage for TWS is pretty good. The Imaging still not really impressive imo. The volume is apparently not really loud enough for my taste, i'm a volume junker guy, Freebuds Pro makes me really disappointed in this section. Even ignoring the price point, i think T1 Lite is still a better sounding one in terms of tonality, it's more clean and more natural. It's also much louder. But the Technicality especially on the Soundstage & Imaging section is actually worse than the Freebuds Pro, not by a huge margin, but for me it's noticable. Talking about features & user experience, well to be honest there're lots of things i love in the Freebuds Pro. The fitting & the comfort for me is really good, actually T1 Lite feels a little more comfortable, but T1 Lite's fitting is a big minus compare to Freebuds Pro. The controlls is just perfect for me! I love that you can control the volume by sliding your finger, i love that there's a tactile sound if you press and hold the control area, and most of the time the control feels responsive! The smart wear detection sometimes kinda hit and miss in my experience, i prefer to turn off this feature and i'm still fine without that feature. The ANC Mode, for my first time ANC experience i'm impressed, but apparently i'm not really using the ANC Mode that often, i dont have any comparison for this ANC quality, so far what i can say is the ANC feels pretty nice & it makes me impressed. The Awareness Mode, it's more or less the same impression with the ANC before, but actually i'm using this Awareness Mode way more often, so far i'm really enjoying this mode quite alot. Dual Connection features is actually really cool, but in my experience it's not really that seamless, there's a 3-5 sec delay when switching device audio source, but again it's still really cool and really nice to have imo. The design and build feels & looks nice imo, the only cons for me is fingerprint magnet, still easy to clean tho.

Design

The first number of the IP rating refers to protection against dust, while the second number refers to protection against liquid. E.g. a first number of 6 denotes that it is completely dustproof, and a second number of 7 denotes that the device can withstand full immersion in water.
weight

12.2g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

Sound quality

This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
has passive noise reduction
Huawei FreeBuds Pro
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
sound pressure level

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
impedance

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
has a neodymium magnet
Huawei FreeBuds Pro
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.

Power

The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
