Appearance Design & Comfort
The “space capsule” design of the Realme Buds Q2s is also the most unique of the true wireless earbuds I’ve used. Oval pebble-like shape with a rounded feel. The cover of the charging case is a light transparent green, and the earbuds inside can be seen intuitively. It is also very easy to open the lid, and you don’t have to worry about the lack of adhesion of the lid, it is very tight after closing and will not open automatically.
Realme Buds Q2s is a relatively small tws earbuds, and the design is also very individual. The touch control position of the earbuds is a round transparent material, which echoes the charging case cover, and the texture on the inside can be seen.
The realme Buds Q2s earbuds support IPX4 waterproofing, have passed the international protection level certification, and have level 4 liquid penetration protection, which can resist water splashing from multiple angles. In daily use scenarios, it can effectively prevent the erosion of splashes, rain and sweat. (charging case is not supported)
In terms of wearing, because the earbuds are relatively small, and the surrounding area is also very smooth, with the curved body, the earbuds are comfortable and not pressed against the ears, and can be worn for a long time.
The accessories in the realme Buds Q2s package are relatively simple. In addition to earbuds and charging case, there are only 2 pairs of eartips, Type-C charging cable and manual.
Battery Life & Gaming Latency & Calling
The Realme Buds Q2s charging case has a total battery capacity of 400mAh, and the earbuds come with a 40mAh battery. Compared with the realme Buds Q2, its total battery life is increased by 50%, achieving a total battery life of 30 hours. The realme Buds Q2s are also equipped with advanced fast charging technology, which can realize the convenient experience of “charging for 10 minutes and listening to songs for 3 hours”.
A single full charge of the earbuds takes only 50 minutes and can support up to 7 hours of playback time. It only takes 150 minutes to fully charge the charging case+earbuds. (*The playback duration tests are all theoretical values, and the volume is set to 50%)
Realme Buds Q2s supports “esports mode” with ultra-low latency of 88ms. Users can turn on/off this mode in the realme Link App or by long pressing the left/right earbud of 2S. Turn on “esports mode” to get bluetooth low-latency dual transmission. With the support of Bluetooth 5.2 technology, problems such as game freezes and disconnections can be effectively reduced.
The realme Buds Q2s adopts AI intelligent noise cancelling algorithm and learns massive samples through deep neural network, which can effectively adapt to different call scenarios. Judging the user’s human voice and environmental noise during a call, filtering out the environmental noise and retaining the human voice, so as to obtain high-definition call quality.
Sound Quality of Realme Buds Q2s
Realme Buds Q2s has a built-in 10mm dynamic driver, is equipped with PEEK+TPU polymer composite diaphragm, and cooperates with the advanced Bass Boost+ composite bass enhancement solution to bring excellent high-quality sound quality. Let the ultra-large dynamic unit extend the bass deeper, and the layering is more obvious, giving you a shocking sense of hearing.
The sound quality of realme Buds Q2s is not bad: the sound orientation is a dynamic style. The high-frequency details are average but still crisp, and the low-frequency quantity brought by the 10mm diaphragm is quite full and sounds quite “interesting”. Although the mid-frequency vocals are relatively flat, and the layers are not very clear, there is nothing wrong with the sound orientation in general, and it is definitely no problem for daily listening to songs. What’s more, after all, it is earbuds with such a cheap price, and the sound quality performance has exceeded my expectations.
This earbuds supports Dolby panoramic sound, which brings high-quality sound effects of stereo surround, and brings a sense of three-dimensional space to the sound. Multi-channel surround, clear layers, creating a cinema-level listening experience. Secondly, there are a variety of ambient sound effects and scene sound effects to choose from, which accurately match the usage scene. (*To be used with a phone that supports Dolby Atmos)
The positioning of realme Buds Q2s is not high and the function is very simple. There is no high-definition transmission protocol (up to aac), no ANC (active noise cancelling), and it seems that there is no pop-up function. But thanks to the overall improvement of industry technology, this earbuds complies with the Bluetooth 5.2 protocol, with a battery life of up to 30 hours and an ultra-low latency of as low as 88ms. In addition, it supports fast charging technology, which can realize charging for 10 minutes, listening to songs for 3 hours, and IPX4 waterproof.
