Realme is back in business. The company has launched its new mid-range smartphone, the Realme 8 5G, and, incidentally, has taken the opportunity to renew its range of Buds Q headphones. These devices, whose design is inspired by kaleidoscopes (Realme’s words), aspire to be a solvent alternative in the entry range thanks, in part, to its price.
The Realme Buds Q2 can be purchased for €29.99. In short, they are simple headphones, with autonomy that promises to be five hours and a system that reduces latency to 88 milliseconds. Having made the introductions, let’s get to know them better.

Call noise cancellation
A peculiar finish for a simple headset
The first thing that strikes you about the Realme Buds Q2 is their peculiar design. Like the previous models, they are inspired by geometric shapes similar to that of kaleidoscopes. From Realme, they have pointed out that they have been designed to be comfortable and to integrate well in our ear. Each earphone weighs 4.1 grams, a figure that is not bad at all, and the set has IPX4 water resistance.
The kaleidoscopic surface is touch-sensitive and will allow users to control the headphones using gestures. It will also allow users to activate the game mode, which reduces latency to 88 milliseconds. What we will not be able to do is enable and disable active noise cancellation, as these headphones lack this feature. What they do have is microphone noise cancellation for calls.
As for the sound, Realme has implemented a 10-millimeter driver that, via software and thanks to the Bass Boost+ function, can give more punch to the bass. The headphones are compatible with AAC and SBC codecs. We will have to see how they behave on a day-to-day basis.
Finally, let’s talk about the battery. Realme has not disclosed the amperage of the headphones but simply promises up to five hours of continuous music playback. Together with the case, which has 400 mAh, an overall autonomy of up to 20 hours will be possible.
