Active noise cancellation and great autonomy
The realme Buds Air 2 maintain a design similar to the previous generation, inspired by AirPods, although they introduce a change in colors. We have headphones in white with a silver body or black with a dark blue body. This slight change allows their design to be somewhat more striking, maintaining their elegance and making them more modern at the same time.
Active noise cancellation is one of the keys in these headphones. This cancellation is possible thanks to a double microphone system that manages to attenuate the external sound up to 25 decibels, to enjoy your music or make calls without any problem. The brand has improved this cancellation with its realme R2 chip, which also allows to reduce energy consumption when using this cancellation.
In terms of autonomy, if we have noise cancellation activated, the realme Buds Air 2 give up to 4 hours (with the volume at 50%). The autonomy is increased when deactivating the noise cancellation, becoming 5 hours. Together with its case we have up to 25 hours autonomy, thanks to its four additional charges. Charging these headphones is especially fast, as they fully charge in 2 hours. In fact, 10 minutes of charging gives 2 hours of music playback.
The realme Buds Air 2 give a quality sound with their 10mm carbon fiber drivers. In addition, they have a technology to improve the bass in collaboration with the group The Chainsmokers, this combination promises to give a sound of studio quality. Like the previous generation, they have support for gesture control. These headphones are also IPX5 certified for resistance to sweat and splashes, so they are ideal for sports or outdoor use.
