Realme Buds 2 Review : Realme being as a youth centric brand realme better know how to make youngsters happier Realme Buds initially launched few months ago and now realme has come up with its successor Realme Bus 2 so let’s take a deep dive and review it.
Realme launched several smartphones in short period of time that offers specification and features that is not generally seen at the given price bracket. Realme launched its first wired headset in November last year along side Realme U1 smartphone.
One thing I like most about realme as a smartphone maker they are keeping headphone jack in 2019 while other brands are teaching the Jack.
Realme Buds 2 Review
Realme Buds 2 are priced at Rs 599, the price is hiked by hundred rupees in comparison to previous generation Realme Buds and at this price point, it is really hard to find a good quality pair of earphones that not only sound good but also offer great comfort and build quality.
But does this Rs 599 earphones from the Realme packs enough punch and performance as per the company’s claims? I have been using these earphones for a while now and here’s what I have to say.
Realme Buds 2 Design
In design department, I have to say that Realme has really invested effort, time and to money in R&D to make it look much more premium compared to others in the same price bracket earphones in the market.
Not only that, the earbuds itself comes with in-canal fit with the help of angular earbuds. Also, the earbus comes with a touch of black and yellow accent which definitely adds to its premium look and feel. Both earbuds are well constructed using good quality of plastic also these buds are magnetic so you don’t have to worry about the tangle.
At the end of the wire Realme has added a wire organiser to organise the birds properly also, it helps in preventing damage to the buds.
Apart from this, the Realme Buds comes with 1m long wire and traditional 3.5mm audio jack. The 1m long wire that is coated with braided Kevlar fibre material after the Y-splitter that is again something not very common with earphones in this price range.
The Kevlar coating adds to the design aesthetics of the earphones, but it also adds in the durability of the product. This also means that the earphones cable is less flimsy and is almost tangle free.
The are in-line three-button remote control that also houses in-line microphone for taking phone calls this is also made out of good quality plastic and doesn’t feel cheap at all. I just felt that the buttons could have more clicky as they do not provide proper feedback when button is pressed this was the same case with original Realme Buds.
The Realme Buds 2 also come with the magnetic clamping mechanism in both the earpiece but unfortunately they do not offer any other features like the ability to pause and play music, receive or disconnect calls.
The mechanism is just helps make the earphones easy to carry or not to fall off while resting around your neck. I wish Realme could have added some of the basic functionality here. However, considering the price point its more of a “good-to-have feature” and I do not have any complaints in this department.
Overall, I would say the the earphone offers more than what it costs in design and build department.
Realme Buds 2 Performance
These earbuds are powered by 11.2 mm bass boost audio drivers with multi-layer composite diaphragm and Japan Daikoku Voice Coil that promises the best bass in the price range the coaxial capsule design allows the 11.2mm movable coil to deliver Hi-Fi music without any interruption, As touted by the company.
Basically, this is a bass-heavy earphone that comes with 11.2mm driver in both earpieces with a frequency rate of 20-20,000 Hz which is claimed to produce 106 dB of sound output.
Coming to the sound quality, the drivers are tuned to favour “lows and highs” more than the vocals and mids and that also showy in the sound output too. I tried listening to music from several genres such as hip hop, EDM and some typical Bollywood songs and I was surprised to see that the earphone performed reasonably well across all the genres.
However, very rarely what i felt the vocals and mids gets overpowered by the bass. In the songd ‘Limit to your love’ by James Blake, the earbuds managed to produced clear and heavy bass but the vocal clarity was not that good, the bass of the earbuds interferes the other frequencies of the earphone.
Also, the earphones comes with pretty deficient soundstage. We wish Realme could tune these earphones to produce slightly better vocals and mids too. But to notice these things, users have to listen to the same song on a different pair of earphones or really engross themselves into the music.
Overall, the earphone does lives up to the company’s claim of producing loud bass with 11.2 mm bass boost audio drivers with multi-layer composite diaphragm and Japan Daikoku Voice Coil.
Realme Buds 2: Verdict
At the price of Rs 599, the Realme Buds 2 comes with a claim to produce deep bass output and I really feel the earphone lives up to the company’s claim. But there’s a small concern regarding its vocal clarity while playing PUBG with it it’s hard to catch the sound of enemy in heavy bass.
I have to give a thumbs up to Realme for adding an extra layer of Kevlar protection to deep bass the overall durability of the earphones and the added earphone organiser. Also, the magnets in each earbuds to hold them in right place that is q nifty addition which is not common in the earphones of this price bracket.
