The Chinese tech player, Realme is also offering a dedicated Gaming Mode on the Buds Q2s. The Game Mode offers a low latency rate of 88 milliseconds. Furthermore, these Realme Q series earbuds also include environmental noise cancellation (ENC) features. This feature will help to filter out the outside environmental noise during calls.

The Realme Buds Q2s come with Bluetooth v5.2 support in terms of connectivity, and Realme claims it can offer a connectivity range of up to 10 meters. The Bluetooth v5.2 will allow instant play and multi-device connectivity. We also access Google Assistant, Alexa, or Siri with the help of these earbuds.

We can also connect these earbuds via the Realme Link app on any Realme device. Furthermore, we can also customize the functionality and touch controls of these earbuds with the help of the Realme Link app. Moreover, the Game Mode can activate via this Realme Link app.
Realme Buds Q2s Charging Case
Realme is offering these TWS earbuds with a charging case that carries a transparent space capsule-like design. The charging case comes with a Micro USB Type-C charging port. Furthermore, the Realme Buds Q2s can offer up to 30 hours of battery life with the charging case. The earbuds can charge from zero to 100 percent in around one hour as per our usage. At the same time, the charging case can charge from zero to 100 percent in approx. 2 hours.
Realme claims that these earbuds can offer 3 hours of playback time with just 10 minutes of charging. The Buds Q2s will provide 7 hours of battery life on a single full charge. The bundled case measures 60.35×44.61×32.54mm. It is 39 grams in weight, along with the earbuds, and each earbud, on the other hand, weighs 4.1 grams.
Realme Buds Q2s: Our Experience
The all-new Buds Q2s are comfortable to hold in our ears for a longer duration of time. We played music and games and attended calls on these earbuds for around 2-3 hours. As per our experience, the overall comfort level of these earbuds is quite decent. Talking about the sound quality, with 10mm audio drivers, we get the bass boost while playing music full of bass. In most of the music we played, we felt the sound quality was full of bass and boom.
While, in the mid and high-frequency, the clarity is below average. Because of the high bass, we feel a bit of muddiness in the high frequency. Overall, the sound separation is decent enough. The mid-frequency and vocals are also relatively low, considering the bass quality. With Bass-Boost mode, we get the enhanced bass effect. We do not recommend these Realme Buds Q2s if you are a soft music lover, and these earbuds are only recommended for bass music lovers.
The mic quality is average during calls, just like any other affordable TWS earbuds. The AI ENC feature works very well on these Realme Q series earbuds, and the low latency gaming mode also works fine. We don’t suggest these earbuds for hardcore gamers; however, you can use this Realme Q2s if you are a casual gamer.
