Realme has announced that its second-gen Buds Air will launch in India on February 24, 2021. It has also confirmed multiple leaks about these TWS earbuds in teasing their specs prior to this event. They include the (expected) ANC, as well as the fact that they will have 10mm "Diamond class" drivers, improved battery life and a low-latency Gaming Mode.

Realme has confirmed the existence of the Buds Air 2 (or RMA2003), as well as the fact that they will arrive onto their first market (India) soon. These TWS earbuds have indeed been developed in conjunction with The Chainsmokers, as indicated in previous leaks. This partnership is presented along with the new tagline, "Noise off, Realme on".

This phrase most likely refers to the active noise cancellation (ANC) of the Buds Air 2, which apparently blocks ambient sound up to the level of 25 decibels (dB), thus conferring an improved audio experience on the earphones. The theme of "better" continues throughout the rest of its hyped specs as well: they are, for example, rated for up to 25 hours of battery life, whereas that of the first-gen Buds Air was estimated at 17 hours.

Their successors also have 10mm "Diamond class drivers", which means the components are made of diamond-like carbon. The use of this material apparently results in deeper bass, enhanced clarity, some kind of positive effect on frequency-response and is also more durable (than what, however, Realme does not specify).

Realme also asserts that it has reduced the latency in the Buds Air 2 to 88 milliseconds (ms) for the purposes of gaming. The earphones also apparently have a "unique style", despite being AirPod clones with a Huawei-esque charging case in all honesty.

Despite all these new details, Realme will still hold off until its upcoming February 24, 2021 event to reveal the pricing for the Buds Air 2. For context, their immediate predecessors the Buds Air Neos started at INR 3,999 (~US$55), although they are now about INR 2,499 (~$36) on

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
