realme Buds Q2 review: One small audio package

Take it with you anywhere and anytime

Published

We all love a good pair of wireless earphones, especially if you just switched to the wireless life. However, we also want these sets of earphones to be as affordable as a set of wired earphones. As the old saying goes, we can’t really have it all, even with something as trivial as earphones.

The people over at realme thought, “are you sure we really can’t have it all” and decided that maybe, it’s time to change all of that. Enter the realme Buds Q2, the company’s latest offering in the TWS earphone space. It’s quite small and easy to carry around, and it hopes to bring an enhanced audio experience on the go.

So, does the realme Buds Q2 keep up? Let’s find out!

Compact, lightweight, and easy to set up

Upon unboxing, the first thing I noticed was how small and subtly designed the case is. It comes in either a clean Black or soft yet vibrant Blue color option, which I feel adds to the style aspect of it. Also, with the case being small, it will slot into any pocket easily — whether it’s in your bottoms or your bag.

What I also love about the realme Buds Q2 is the ease in setting it up. For one thing, they already give you instructions on how Bluetooth pairing works on the buds the moment you open it up. Also, if you have any realme smartphone, you can link and customize it through the realme Link app. 

Overall great sound quality

Here’s the thing: the realme Buds Q2 provides impressive sound quality mostly because of everything integrated inside it. For starters, it comes with a 10mm Dynamic Bass Boost driver, which adds depth and bass to the sounds you hear. Essentially, it lets you hear your favorite music the way it’s meant to be.

In my usage of the device, I could definitely hear some level of depth in most songs I listened to. It isn’t as punchy and in-your-face about it, and it’s also quite loud even at around 50 to 60 percent volume. Also, I felt some level of noise cancellation with prolonged use (but more on that for another segment).

If there’s one issue I encountered while using it, it was a little bit of latency upon initial use. See, thee realme Buds Q2 also come with an 88ms Super Low Latency mode more suited for gaming. Essentially, it supposedly reduces latency between video and audio while watching videos or playing games. Initially, however, latency was evident but with prolonged use, it became a non-issue.

Decent for gaming and work comms

Another neat feature of the realme Buds Q2 is its environmental noise cancellation, which on paper is great for calls. For the most part, it helps make your voice a little bit more clearer and eliminates any background noise when you’re talking. Whether it’s for a meeting or team comms during gameplay, it’s what it was built for.

I felt it did a decent job in cleaning and clearing up my voice during these situations. For the most part, my teammates heard my voice quite clearly even for a small earbud with a relatively precise microphone. Also, they took note of how there was minimal noise or scratches in my voice every time my microphone was on.

Solid battery life for such a small package

In terms of lasting long, the realme Buds Q2 is no slouch at that. On a single yet continuous usage, I managed to squeeze in roughly four to five hours of total audio (and sometimes video) playback. When maximizing the near two-hour battery life of the charging case, I got about 18 hours of earbud time. Honestly, this is already quite long considering it’s not particularly designed for a full day use. 

Also, the earbuds and charging case take roughly a short time to fully charge up. With the charging case, the realme Buds Q2 took close to two and a half hours to do a 0 to 100 on. Meanwhile, the charging case itself took about two hours, which isn’t that long.

Is this your GadgetMatch?

At PhP 1,290, the realme Buds Q2 lives up to the expectation of a great wireless audio device. It boasts great audio quality in a compact and lightweight package, fit for everyday on-the-go use. With its ease of set up, it’s a daily driver that fits any device you plan to use it on.

It even comes with great hardware-centered features that do their part in enhancing the audio experience a little bit. Things like noise cancellation and bass boosting drivers allow you to fully immerse yourself with the music or games. Plus, it lasts quite long so you can keep listening to your music or play with team comms for hours on end.

For its price, it’s a device that screams “we can have it all” in one package. A great audio experience at an affordable range; I mean, what more could you ask for, right?

Razer now has its own gaming finger sleeves

Keeping your thumbs dry

Published

on

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.
