The overall appearance design of NeoBuds Pro 2 has not changed much, and it basically follows the design style of the previous generation NeoBuds Pro . When you first see NeoBuds Pro 2 , you can immediately tell that it continues the sports car design of the previous generation, while further optimizing the appearance of the charging box. The most prominent change is that the color of the charging box is more uniform.

At the same time, the choice of 7 sizes of earmuffs ensures that different users can find a comfortable wearing solution that suits them.

However, NeoBuds Pro 2 performs poorly in terms of wearing comfort. The cavity of the earphones is relatively large, and unlike AirPods Pro 2 , the cavity of NeoBuds Pro 2 is relatively ” drummy ” . If you use it for a long time, you will feel obvious soreness.

Since Spatial Audio was launched by Apple. It has now become a standard feature of flagship true wireless headphones. And all flagship headphones are equipped with this feature. Unlike brands such as Apple and Huawei, third-party headphone brands like Edifier have no ecological advantages. The headphones cannot be support by mobile phone playback devices. Spatial audio can only be achieve by relying on the headset’s own algorithm and computing power. The spatial audio of NeoBuds Pro 2 supports dynamic head tracking. The headset can track the position of the head through the built-in gyroscope. The position of the head can be see in real time in the Edifier Connect APP. And it can be clearly sense if the head is shake. The direction in which the sound travels. However, this head tracking will lose track after being use for a period of time. You need to click the direction calibration function in the APP to readjust it.

It is unsatisfactory and has little difference from the listening experience of stereo music. The good thing is that the spatial audio effect of NeoBuds Pro 2 is not limited by the playback device. It supports all playback devices that can be connect to headphones.

The call function is extremely important for headset users. The 8 -mic call noise reduction technology of NeoBuds Pro 2 effectively suppresses background noise while ensuring call clarity.

So that call quality is not affect.

24 hours comprehensive battery life

In terms of the battery life of the headphones, NeoBuds Pro 2 performs quite well. The earphones have a maximum battery life of only 4.5 hours with noise reduction turned on. And can be use for up to 6 hours with noise reduction turned off. The maximum comprehensive battery life of the headphones with the charging box is only 24 hours. It does not support wireless charging. This battery life performance is only an acceptable level for a flagship headset. But fortunately NeoBuds Pro 2 supports fast charging, which can be use for two hours after 15 minutes of charging.
