Realme Buds Air 2 arrives with noise cancellation


Realme today unveiled the Narzo 30 smartphone series, and in addition to those, the company introduced buds Air 2 earbuds, which are the successor to buds Air headphones released in December 2019.

Realme Buds Air 2 looks similar to buds Air Pro and boasts a two-color color design.

Powered by a custom R2 chip, Realme says it offers 80 percent longer battery life and reduces latency by 35 percent compared to its predecessor.

Buds Air 2 has a 10mm speaker with a diamond-like carbon coating, which delivers richer, clearer sound and better frequency response.

With Buds Air 2, Realme introduced a new Bass Boost+ mode developed in collaboration with Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart.

In addition, Realme has also added two new advanced settings to The Realme Link app, Dynamic and Bright, which will be available between high, low, and medium frequency tones, while Bright enhances human voice, making it ideal for listening to podcasts and audiobooks.

However, one of the most important features of Buds Air 2 is the ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLATION FEATURE ANC, which was not present in the first generation buds Air.

ANC via Buds Air 2 can reduce noise by up to 25 decibels and is able to filter most low-frequency sounds, including home appliance noise.

In addition, buds Air 2 features enc, which uses dual microphones on both speakers to make clearer calls.

Buds Air 2 supports touch controls, smart Wear Detection, and comes with Bluetooth 5.2 and dual-channel transport.

It also comes with the upgraded game mode, which provides a transition time of up to 88 milliseconds, an important upgrade on transition time compared to the 120 milliseconds offered by Buds Air.

Realme has not disclosed the size of the batteries inside the earphones and charging case, but the company claims that the speakers provide five hours of runtime with a single charge, and when combined with the charging case, you get a total of 25 hours of operation with ANC off, and 22.5 hours with ANC on.

While the battery's endurance increased, Realme abandoned the wireless charging that was present in the original Buds Air speakers.

However, buds Air 2 supports fast charging, allowing you to get two hours of charging for 10 minutes, while full charging requires 2 hours.

Realme Buds Air 2 received an IPX5 rating, sold for $45, and is on sale from March 2.
