Realme Buds Air 2 will bring active noise cancellation. Realme has reserved the environment of the MWC 2021 in Shanghai to present some of its first news of the year, although they already anticipated that on March 4 we will have a new mobile. For now, they have presented the new Realme Buds Air 2 and more mobiles of the Narzo series, which last year were left in India.
The direct heirs of the Realme Buds Air have a slightly different design, although they are still completely wireless headphones (TWS) with an external bar. They maintain the noise cancellation that already had the first generation, renewing the chip and improving on paper the maximum autonomy.

An internal overhaul to make an impact on playback hours and noise reduction
The Realme Buds Air 2 feature a less smooth design, separating more the external bar than the part that is placed in the ear. Aesthetically they look more like the Realme Buds Air Pro, considering that the case is also somewhat more rounded.
Although the main new features are the ones you can’t see. The new Realme Air 2 Buds incorporate active noise cancellation, which they achieve thanks to their dual microphone. Realme indicates that they manage to cancel noises of up to 25 decibels, also with the help of a new chip, the Realme R2.
Other non-visible improvements include the 10-millimeter carbon fiber driver and IPX5 certification for resistance to sweat and water droplets. Bluetooth is also upgraded by one notch to 5.2.
Taking into account the carrying/charging case and the headphones themselves, the figures promise to be better than those of their predecessors. They can reach up to 25 hours without cancellation and taking into account the extra autonomy provided by the case (with four additional charges), offering up to 4 hours with the volume at 50% and noise cancellation activated considering only the headset.
They are fully charged in 2 hours talking about the box and the headphones, completing the full charge of the latter in an hour. Also, they maintain the touch control with gestures and the sensor to detect when we put them on or take them off.
Realme Buds Air 2 price and release date
The new Realme Buds Air 2 has been presented for now in India, but by precedent, it would not be surprising if they arrive in other parts of the world. The price is about $45 at the exchange rate and they come with ear cushions and charging cable, being available in white and black.
