Yu said that the main intelligent dynamic noise reduction of the FreeBuds Pro 2, silent call functions have been studied here, creating sound quality with deep bass and rich details. More than 3,500 tests had been performed on the helmet as a whole. The intelligent dynamic noise reduction function can quickly identify the type of noise in the environment and automatically switch to the corresponding noise reduction mode for users.
The FreeBuds Pro 2 offers three degrees of noise reduction, including deep, soft, and balanced. The deep noise reduction is suitable when you take the subway or on an airplane. The headphones will automatically deepen noise reduction effects and weaken low frequency noise. Meanwhile, light mode supports quiet environments such as libraries and offices. Headphones will help users to eliminate noise from machinery such as air conditioners and computers. The balanced mode is suitable for taking a nap in noisy areas or in a cafe, and the headphones can effectively reduce background noise interference in these circumstances.
