The Belkin SoundForm Adapt have a weight of 72.6g, these weigh below 320g, which we consider as the highest average a headphone should weigh for comfort during long use.
We take in account a lower weight best because lighter devices are more comfortable to transport.
The Huawei Freebuds Studio, at 260g are heavier than the Belkin SoundForm Adapt by 187.4g
Detachable cables are cables that have connectors on both ends. One end goes into your headphone cups, while the other end is inserted into a source device. Some new headphones, and not just the expensive ones, are coming with detachable cables, Belkin SoundForm Adapt are one of those.
Belkin SoundForm Adapt are foldable, which makes them more portable. Foldable headphones are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
Over-ear headphones have larger earpads that fit around your entire ear Belkin SoundForm Adapt have a comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This design is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors.
Huawei Freebuds Studio with this design offer potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
Belkin SoundForm Adapt have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Active noise cancellation uses more advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 outside (noise from your surrounding) and adding -1 inside (counter sound within the device) to make 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
Huawei Freebuds Studio allow 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.
Passive Noise Cancellation uses well-designed ear cups to seal out environment noise. This is used for both in-ear earphones and over-ear headphones where the headphone itself will keep surrounding noise out.
The Belkin SoundForm Adapt sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which means that also the Huawei Freebuds Studio isolates you from ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
Low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device reproduces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on the way through. Belkin SoundForm Adapt's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, the lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
Huawei Freebuds Studio's lowest frequency is at 4Hz, this implies that Belkin SoundForm Adapt got a juicier bass than the Huawei Freebuds Studio
High frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component reproduces high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on the way through. Belkin SoundForm Adapt's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, the higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
Huawei Freebuds Studio's highest frequency is at 48,000Hz, this implies that Huawei Freebuds Studio got a clearer and crispier treble than the Belkin SoundForm Adapt
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the headphone. Belkin SoundForm Adapt driver unit is 40mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Huawei Freebuds Studio driver unit is 40mm in diameter, making both devices similar in how loud their sound gets , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty reproducing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better sound.
If your headphones play wirelessly, cancel ambient noise, or enhance your listening experience with active features, their battery life will reduce over time. The device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often. Belkin SoundForm Adapt's battery life is 65 hours
Huawei Freebuds Studio's battery life is 24 hours. Each time you recharge your headphones, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first. But over a few years, you may find that your device, no longer plays for long like it used to.
It takes 1 hours to fully charge the Huawei Freebuds Studio's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the headphones for the first time or when they have been unused for extended periods.

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. Huawei Freebuds Studio's battery power is 410mAh, more battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
A rechargeable battery is a type of electrical battery that can be charged, discharged into a load, and recharged many times, as opposed to a disposable or primary battery, which is supplied fully charged and discarded after use.
Belkin SoundForm Adapt's battery can be recharged and used over again.
The Huawei Freebuds Studio too have a rechargeable battery.
2.4GHz wireless is used for devices such as headsets such as the Belkin SoundForm Adapt, keyboards, and mice similar to Bluetooth but with a proprietary radio frequency. It typically offers better performance than Bluetooth, with low latency and good stability.
Huawei Freebuds Studio too uses this kind of connectivity, its low-latency, high-quality audio comes along with better battery life.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Belkin SoundForm Adapt has a v5.2
Huawei Freebuds Studio has a Bluetooth version of v5.2. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
