realme Buds Q2: Price and availability in the Philippines

Wireless audio is good, but they’ve made it better



Smartphone manufacturer realme continues to build on its successful wireless audio products, from the realme Buds Q to the realme Buds Air. This time around, their latest set of True Wireless Stereo (TWS) earphones aims to bring an even better audio experience for all use cases. Introducing: the realme Buds Q2!

Better listening experience

The company’s new set of TWS earphones sports a 40mAh battery within each earbud, and 400mAh in the charging case. In this setup, the earphones can last for about 20 hours long in total playback, ranging from music to videos and calls. Within each earbud, realme integrated a 10mm Dynamic Bass Boost Driver to significantly improve the audio feedback.

Apart from these, the realme Buds Q2 comes with a Super Low Latency Gaming Mode feature. Essentially, this feature ensures a near-perfect sync between video and audio during gameplay and video playback. This way, you can enjoy your favorite games without lagging behind the competition.

Finally, the realme Buds Q2 also enhances the audio call experience through Environmental Noise Cancellation. Through the built-in microphone, the buds create a powerful noise reduction system for more audible voices during calls. This is great for those meetings and in-game voice communications with your teammates.

Faster connectivity and intelligent control

Another key feature with the realme Buds Q2 is its instant connection through Bluetooth 5.0. As long as your device is within 10 meters of the earbuds, the realme Buds Q2 will keep playing your Spotify playlist. Also, connecting to any device is seamless the moment you pop up the earbuds.

Along with faster connectivity, these earbuds also sport intelligent touch controls for ease of experience. With simple taps on the buds, you can play or pause your music, answer calls, and switch to gaming mode. That way, you don’t have to open up your phone as often.

Quality design choices

All of these features come in a truly compact yet stylish design factor, from the case to the buds. For the case, it comes in two colorways in Black or Blue, and roughly weighs 39g with the buds inside. This alone already makes it an ultra-portable daily driver for your runs to the office. Also, the earbuds themselves are quite light and comfortable to wear on the ear for a long time.

For the buds, they feature a kaleidoscope-like design on the body, amplifying its style options. Also, for your own protection, the realme Buds Q2 come with a IPX4 Water Resistance rating that prevents damage from splash, rain, and sweat. This expands its daily use to even workouts or fitness activities.

The realme Buds Q2 is now available for the price of PhP 1,290 in select realme concept stores, kiosks, and partner dealers.

Razer now has its own gaming finger sleeves

Keeping your thumbs dry



Razer has somehow transformed into the ruler of gaming lifestyle accessories. After releasing treasure troves of peripherals and devices, the company has slowly branched off into stranger and stranger niches including toasters and SUVs. Razer is now blending peripheral with accessory in its latest product: Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves.

If you haven’t heard of finger sleeves before, think gloves but only for your fingers — or, in this case, finger. The Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves are meant to be worn on your thumbs. It’s specifically made for mobile gamers.

Made with a mixture of sliver fiber fabric, nylon, and spandex, the sleeves can keep your thumbs dry for serious gaming on your phone. Despite wrapping your thumbs, Razer says that the fabric is still breathable at 0.8 millimeters. They’re also a universal fit for any type of thumb.

Mobile gaming is one of the most popular forms of entertainment especially in Asian countries like the Philippines. Playing on your phone can easily whittle away the time spent in traffic or outdoors. However, since some countries are too warm and humid, sweat can just as easily accumulate and create an unsightly portrait on our otherwise pristine phone screens.

The Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves are out now and retails for US$ 9.99.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset now sports Midnight Black

Nicely paired with the DualSense controller and your “Midnight Black” PS5



Pulse 3D Wireless

Back in June, Sony announced two additional colorways for its next-generation DualSense controller. Apart from the classic white, the PlayStation 5’s newest controller also received a Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. This time around, they’ve extended the invitation to another PS5 peripheral, the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset.

Much like the DualSense controller, the headset will also come in Midnight Black. Other than this, everything else is pretty much the same for the Pulse 3D Headset. In essence, it still gives you deeper, more immersive 3D sounds to games that fully take advantage of this. It’s just that now, you have other color options to choose from. Whether or not this also comes in Cosmic Red, Sony has yet to announce that.

It’s worth noting that included in the PS5’s second major update is an equalizer for the 3D Pulse. It adds another layer of control for players. This lets them enjoy the game precisely the way they want to. But if tweaking isn’t your thing, there are also three presets: Standard, Bass Boost, or Shooter.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset in Midnight Black will be available on October 29 for PhP 5,590/ SG$ 149 / MYR 469/ DR1,699,000 / THB3,490 / VND2,699,000.
