More than a year after the launch of the Buds Air, Realme has launched the new Buds Air 2 TWS earbuds. It was launched alongside the Narzo 30 series and a couple of Narzo gaming accessories. And it has been made in collaboration with the DJ-duo, The Chainsmokers. Compared to its predecessor, the Buds Air 2 brings a lot of new features to the table. For instance, it features a diamond-like carbon diaphragm. That’s something one usually finds on high-end earbuds. Furthermore, it promises a great battery life too. Let’s check out what else the Realme Buds Air 2 TWS earbuds offer including its expected price in Nepal.
Realme Buds Air 2 TWS Overview:
First of all, let’s talk about the R2 chip that powers the Realme Buds Air 2. The chipset offers stellar computing performance and offers more stable connections. Moreover, in contrast to the R1 chip in the first-gen Buds Air, it is energy efficient too. Per Realme, the R2 chip offers up to 80% increased battery life, while also introducing new features like Active Noise Cancellation (ANC).
Also, the company claims that these earbuds can offer 25 hours of total battery life. However, that’s with ANC turned off and volume set to 50%. With ANC on, the claimed battery life is about 22.5 hours.
ANC and ENC
While on the topic of ANC, Buds Air 2 offers noise cancellation of up to 25dB. These earbuds are capable of filtering low-frequency sounds like airplane noises during takeoff and landings. Moreover, it features Environment Noise Cancellation (ENC) too. The ENC algorithm along with the dual-mic setup helps to achieve clarity during calls.
As mentioned earlier, the Buds Air 2’s 10mm driver comes with a Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating on the diaphragm. It helps to achieve better sound and offers better frequency responses. Moreover, the Buds Air 2 also equips the new Bass Boost+ mode. This mode allows the users to turn up the bass level in any sort of music they listen to.
Other than that, the Realme Link app has also received two new presets: Dynamic and Bright. Dynamic mode helps to balance bass, treble, and mid-frequency sounds. Similarly, the Bright mode enhances human voices in podcasts, audiobooks, and such.

Other notable features of the Buds Air 2 include open-up auto-connection, Google Fast Pair (GFP), IPX5 waterproof, and smart wear detection. Here, the latter means that these earbuds will automatically pause the music when you take one off your ear and resume after you put it back in. However, unlike the Buds Air, this one does not have wireless charging. But, that probably is not necessary as they offer two hours of playback with just a 10-minute charge. Talking about charging, it takes 1 hour to completely juice up the earbuds only, while it takes an hour more with including the case.
