Effortlessly Locate Your Huawei Headphones: A Comprehensive Guide for Android, iOS, and HarmonyOS Users

Misplacing your Huawei headphones can be a frustrating experience, especially when you're about to head out or need them for an important call. Fortunately, Huawei has introduced an ingenious solution for Android, iOS, and HarmonyOS users to effortlessly find their lost headphones. This detailed manual guides you on how to swiftly find your Huawei headphones, ensuring you're never without your tunes for an extended period.

Step 1: Download the HUAWEI AI Life App

Before you can start locating your lost Huawei headphones, the first thing you need to do is download the HUAWEI AI Life app. This is your control center for finding your headphones, among other features.

For Android Users:

If you're using an Android device, ensure you have the HUAWEI AppGallery installed. From there, search for and download the HUAWEI AI Life app.

For iOS Users:

iPhone users can find the HUAWEI AI Life app directly in the Apple App Store. Simply search for it and download.

For HarmonyOS Users:

HarmonyOS devices come with the HUAWEI AppGallery pre-installed. Open the AppGallery, search for the HUAWEI AI Life app, and download it to your device.

Step 2: Pair Your Headphones and Update

After installing the HUAWEI AI Life app, the next step is to pair your Huawei headphones with your device. This process is straightforward and similar across Android, iOS, and HarmonyOS devices. Once paired, check for any available updates for your headphones within the app to ensure you have access to the latest features, including the find-my-headphone function.

Step 3: Locating Your Headphones Using Sound

If your headphones are lost but within range, you can use the HUAWEI AI Life app to make them emit a sound, making it easier for you to find them.

  1. Open the HUAWEI AI Life app.
  2. Select your Huawei FreeBuds Pro 3 or Huawei FreeBuds SE from the list of devices.
  3. Choose the "Find My Headphones" option.
  4. You will see options to play a sound through the left or right earbud. Select one to start the sound, which will gradually increase in volume.
  5. Follow the sound to locate your headphone. Once found, select "Stop Sound" in the app.

Please note, this method only works if the headphones are out of their charging case and within the Bluetooth range of your phone.

Step 4: Map Search for Your Charging Case

If your headphones are snug in their charging case or if you're looking for just the case itself, the HUAWEI AI Life app offers a map search feature.

  1. In the HUAWEI AI Life app, select "Find Earbuds" > "Locate on Map".
  2. The app will show the last known location of your headphones when they were last connected to your phone. If they are currently connected, you can see their real-time location.

Ensure you've enabled the location features on your device to use this function:

  • Android and HarmonyOS: Go to Settings > Security > Find My Device and enable "Find My Phone" and "Send Last Location".
  • iOS: Navigate to Settings > [Your Name] > Find My > Find My iPhone and ensure "Find My iPhone" and "Send Last Location" are turned on.


Losing your Huawei headphones doesn't have to be a major inconvenience. With the HUAWEI AI Life app and the steps outlined above, you can quickly locate your lost headphones or charging case, whether you're using an Android, iOS, or HarmonyOS device. No more wasted time searching or worrying about replacing your headphones. Get back to enjoying your music, podcasts, and calls with minimal disruption.
