Realme Buds Air 2 Neo Rating: Reasons for recommendation
Review conclusion: Realme Buds Air 2 (IPX5 Waterproof)is with reasonable price. You just need $50 to be able to buy a true Bluetooth wireless headset with active noise cancellation. its active noise cancellation 25dB makes you feel isolated, also it has quick transparent mode to stop the noise cancellation and be able to hear the outside world “clearly”.
Realme Bud Air 2’s sound quality has Elastic bass, very recommended for bass lover. TWS binaural stereo mode can be used in one ear. Support 10 minutes quick charge available for three hours is very convenient. Rocky recommended to people love rich bass with the need for cheap active noise cancelling Bluetooth headphones.
The Realme Buds Air 2 Neo drawbacks:
#1 The headset is a bit heavy and bulky, which makes it a bit uncomfortable to wear,
#2 Volume cannot be adjusted on the headphones
#3 The price is relatively high, so people who don’t need active noise cancellation don’t need to buy it.
#4 sound quality of the vocal part is relatively weak than other, has balance issue
#5 Touch has a sensory problem, two out of ten times will not detect correctly
Headphones sound quality knowledge:
Rocky also has the work experience of brand headphone company, and I have listened to many headphones from $30~$1500. Here I want to give you a basic concept of Sound quality. Wired headphones to the general public to get so-called good sound quality feel is about $25 up. If you have wooden ears(not able to distinguish good sound and bad sound), feel free to pick the word “heavy bass”.
Listen to ACG anime music with high woman vocal requirements is to buy “Audio-Technica”. As for people who are picky about the sound quality is basically starting from $35 will be better.As for Wireless headset sound quality, in the past is more than $70 to have good sound quality(just better than acceptable). This time, I bought Realme Bud Air 2 Neo to see if there is any improvement.

Realme Buds Air 2 Neo Appearance: too big **** Rating Bad
Realme Buds Air 2 Neo single-ear headset weighs 4.5g, the same as Xiaomi Bluetooth Airdots Value Edition, but Airdots Value Edition is comfortable to wear without any foreign body feeling. The Realme Bud Air 2 Neo is not the same, the oversized shape makes it uncomfortable to wear, and after about 30 minutes it feels “unbearable”. Especially for girls with small ears, save your time and skip it.
Realme Buds Air 2 Neo Work Time/Charging Time: High Rating
Realme Buds Air 2 Neo headphones can last up to 7 hours without noise cancellation, and 5 hours with noise cancellation on. When there is no power, the charging box can be used to charge the headset directly.
The manufacturer says that it can be used for three hours after 10 minutes of charging, which is a very considerate feature user. People may suddenly found run out of power and want to continue using it as soon as possible. Headset battery 40mAh rechargeable case battery capacity: 400mAh, can charge both ears four times.
Bluetooth connection: binaural / monaural mode (Rating so so )
Realme Buds Air 2 Neo can be divided into monaural and binaural use. It is easy to connect. The first time to connect to the Android system is to scan a code and connect. If you want to use both ears, take out both ears together, in no particular order. You can also take one ear after a while and then take the other ear, you can also automatically open the binaural mode. But you can’t connect two phones separately with single ear XD
Headset function: touch type Rating is okay ()
Explain Once again, the operation of the Bluetooth headset is divided into two types: touch and button, touch feels more classy for sure. I prefer the button type, the command can be easily recognized. As for tough type, sometime it’s just don’t know if you touch once or twice unless it feels good to give you a break.
The button type surely will have the problem of life, the general industry button life measurement will be based on 5,000 times, I think it should last for two years.
Anyway, the Realme Buds Air 2 Neo adapts touch type design, so it will encounter the problems mentioned above, and there will be two errors in judgment in 10 touches. I really do not like the touch type lol.
Call sound quality: good rating (clear)
Noise reduction: Active noise reduction 25db (superb rating)
Music quality: Acceptable (Bass is abundant and elastic)
Sound quality: the price of $50 alone, Realme Buds Air 2 Neo sound quality is acceptable, plus the active noise cancellation becomes worth. The bass is good and very elasticy, the vocals are not handled well. If the bass is 85 points, the vocals are about 58 ~ 62 points.
The treble extension of Realme Buds Air 2 Neo is another highlight, before Xiaomi Airdots 2 headphones review mentioned that “if you view the headset as a singer, the headset will also have the time than can’t sing the higher pitch. This is the case with the Xiaomi Airbuds Value Edition”. And the Realme Buds Air 2 Neo performs very well here, with the treble extension reaching a high level of around 90 points for the song.
Realme Buds Air 2 Neo sound quality in general is excellent bass + excellent treble extension but dragged down by the ordinary vocals, which caused the original listening to high songs are not high, and lyrical songs are not lyrical. Just feels like something is missing.
Realme Buds Air 2 Neo APP: Realme Link (Not much to set)
If you download the original software Realme Link, you can apply bright mode to improve the overall balance of the vocal a little. However, the original elastic abundant bass is down to 65 ~ 70 points. The advantage will disappear though. I tried to adjust the EQ but the outcome is not pleased. It is recommended not to adjust the settings (Default: dynamic). At least the Elastic bass is cool.

FAQ: Is Realme Buds Air Neo 2 waterproof?
Realme Bud Q2 is IPX4 Water proof. The official claim to prevent damage, you should avoid directly immersion in water. My suggestion is of course not to wash it or put it in water. The waterproof level is only water resistance.
FAQ: Realme Buds Air 2 Neo vs Realme Buds Q2
The Choice is simple if you have budget, go for Realme Buds Air 2 Neo with longer use time, better sound and Active Noise Cancellation. I personally don’t recommend Realme Buds Q2 for it’s poor sound quality and cheap plastic appearance. To buy Realeme Bus Q2, I rather recommend you to buy Xaiomi Readmi Airdots 2 (Mi Airdots value Edtion.)
