While it has the same design language as its predecessor, the Buds Q2 get a fancier diamond-like pattern for the touch control pads to give it a more premium appeal. Despite the familiar pebble-shaped case designed by Jose Levy, realme introduced some key upgrades to the Buds Q2 like a better low-latency game mode, an IPx4 rating, and ENC for calls.
For its game mode, you get a lower 88ms latency, which is better than the 119ms latency its predecessor offered. It also brings over an IPx4 rating, making the Buds Q2 more suitable for sweaty workouts. As for the Environmental Noise Cancellation (ENC) feature, the Buds Q2 has an algorithm that filters external noise to improve audio quality during calls. For music, however, you will have to depend on passive noise cancellation with the Buds Q2’s in-ear fit.
Like its predecessor, the Buds Q2 also has a rated 20 hour battery life, Bluetooth 5.0, 10mm bass boost drivers, support for SBC and AAC codecs, and (sadly) a MicroUSB port that can give 2 hours of playback with just 10 minutes of charging. They are also lightweight as well, with each bud weighing just 4.1 grams. You also can link the Buds Q2 via the realme Link app for firmware upgrades and further customization for the touch controls.
