Huawei’s Latest AirPods Imitators Add Noise Cancellation

Published

on

Huawei

Huawei is adding noise cancellation to the third-generation of the FreeBuds, its true wireless earbuds that look almost identical to Apple’s AirPods. The FreeBuds 3, which the company announced onstage today at IFA 2019, includes four hours of battery life in the earbuds themselves and come with a circular puck-shaped charging case that expands their total listening time to 20 hours. The earbuds are available in either black or white.

Huawei claims that the FreeBuds 3 is the world’s first noise-canceling headphones with an open-fit design. What this means is that the earbuds don’t create a sealed physical barrier between your ear canal and the world around you, like the silicon tips on regular in-ear noise-canceling headphones try to do.

It’s an unusual design for a pair of noise-cancelling earbuds, and it could have a big impact on how well the feature works in the FreeBuds 3. Active noise cancellation tends to work best on lower-frequency sounds like the rumbling of a plane or traffic noise, but it’s less effective at higher frequencies, which is why it’s helpful to also have the earbuds attempt to physically block sounds from getting into your ears.

When I asked Huawei about this, it said that its priority with the earphones was comfort, and that people are less sensitive to high frequency background noises while they’re trying to listen to music. It added that in some cases hearing high frequencies like car alarms is actually useful for people, since it gives them more awareness of what’s going on around them.

Huawei is also introducing a new chip with the FreeBuds 3 called the A1 chip, which it was keen to compare to the H1 chip that Apple uses in its AirPods. The company says the new chip is the first in the world to support the Bluetooth 5.1 standard, and is designed to offer lower latency and power consumption compared to other Bluetooth chips. However, while Apple’s H1 chip allows its earbuds to automatically pair with phones when they’re in proximity with them, I still had to hop into the Bluetooth settings menu of a phone to pair it with Huawei’s FreeBuds 3.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to properly test the noise-cancellation capabilities of the FreeBuds 3, since Huawei’s demonstration room was almost completely silent. However, the earbuds sounded good in the brief time that I spent with them, with nicely controlled bass levels and an articulate soundstage. I also found that the FreeBuds 3 were comfortable and fit nicely in my ears.

Huawei’s FreeBuds have never been afraid to wear their Apple influence on their sleeve. However, with the noise cancellation introduced with the third-generation earbuds, Huawei is offering a feature you technically won’t get with the AirPods (a least not until next year), even if I’m a little skeptical as to how well noise cancellation will work with an open-fit design in practice.

Eating Gari Soakings Is Bad For Your Health : Medical Experts Warns

Published

Gari Soakings

One food that is popular among the Ghanaian and Nigerian community is gari. Whiles the Ghanaians have different styles or ways of eating gari which has also been given the name ‘Agyenkwa’ meaning saviour, Nigerians prefer to use it as ‘eba’.

But according to a Nigerian medical expert identified as Dr. Boniface Okolo has said that soaked gari (or gari soakings as it’s called here in Ghana) causes Lassa Fever as the rodents that cause this disease are often in contact with gari, during an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

He added that it was necessary to discourage consumption of soaked gari since it did not require boiled water. Dr. Okolo noted that boiled water could go a long way to kill bacteria caused by pests or rodents in gari.

“We in the state health ministry are waging total war against rodents through sensitization, that is what we are doing to ensure we do not have a victim of Lassa fever in the state.

“We are also sensitizing the public to ensure that their fruits and raw vegetables are properly washed if they must be consumed them raw and cook to the appropriate temperature.

“The best practices for food storage should be encouraged to prevent an epidemic. ”We should always make sure that we use air-tight clean plastic containers to preserve our foodstuff to avoid Lassa fever and other diseases,” he said.

PornHub

Pornhub has been sued by a deaf man who accused them of violating a federal law in their videos.

Yaroslav Suris who accused the porn company of denying the deaf and hearing-impaired access to its videos that others can easily enjoy, alleged that it was a violation of his and others’ rights under the American’s with Disabilities Act.

The deaf man disclosed that he pays for Pornhub’s premium subscription but couldn’t understand the audio portion of videos on the site. He further revealed that he was completely lost in the dialogue of several videos he attempted to enjoy. He also listed a few titles to prove his point of the videos coming without closed captioning.

TMZ reported that asides suing to get Pornhub to be inclusive and to add closed captioning, he also wants damages.

Pornhub VP Corey Price who reacted to the lawsuit, said;

“We understand that Yaroslav Suris is suing Pornhub for claiming we’ve denied the deaf and hearing impaired access to our videos.

“While we do not generally comment on active lawsuits, we’d like to take this opportunity to point out that we do have a closed captions category.”
