Realme Buds Air 2 specs confirmed: 25 dB ANC, 25-hour battery, low latency mode

Peter, 19 February 2021

Realme is drumming up a lot of buzz for the February 24 launch of its Buds Air 2 TWS headset. They will be tuned by electronic DJs The Chainsmokers and promise the best in class active noise cancellation (ANC). Here’s an overview of the headset from the event page.

The ANC is rated at 25 dB, compared to 35 dB for the Realme Buds Air Pro. Of course, the Pro are priced INR 5,000/€90 and the Air 2 will be more affordable (the actual price will be announced at the event). The original Air headset was about half that (€50).

These will have a gaming mode that promises to drop latency down to 88 ms. That is actually slightly better than the Pro model, which advertises 94 ms.

Battery life is also slightly better, the Realme Buds Air 2 should last 22.5 hours with ANC enabled (compared to 20 hours for the Pro). With cancellation disabled, you’re looking at around 25 hours of playback. A full charge will require 2 hours, but a quick 10 minute top up is good enough for 2 hours of play time.

The buds will have 10 mm drivers with diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating on the diaphragm. Compared to traditional diaphragms, Realme says that DLC improves frequency response for cleaner sound and deeper bass (and helps the headset last longer to boot).

The launch event is scheduled for Wednesday next week at 12:30 pm.

Is it possible to use active noise cancelation without listening to music? Just the ANC

"gaming mode that promises to drop latency down to 88 ms" A drop from mid-90s to 88ms is not really helpful. 5ms would be perfect, 10ms would be OK, 20ms should be reasonable, 50+ms is bad, IMO. 90ms is just plain unplayable - it means no...
