After success of True Air 1, Soundpeats continues to bring Soundpeats True Air 2 wireless earbuds to the market with many outstanding upgraded features such as CVC noise cancellation for voice call and True Wireless Mirroring technology to provide higher sound quality while still remains in a tiny form factor.
With just under $36 on Aliexpress, True Air 2 remains the most affordable TWS earbuds on the market that has CVC noise cancelling. Along with the SoundPeats Sonic & SoundPeats TruEngine SE, SoundPeats True Air 2 is one of the best bang of the buck products on the market.
SoundPeats True Air 2’s exterior
In this iteration of True Air, SoundPeats has completely changed the design of the charging case. If in the previous generation we had a cylindrical charging case similar to Apple Airpods, however in the 2nd iteration, we have a charging case with the seashell design. The case is made from high quality ABS plastic, with matter pattern and the logo on top.
On the back, you will find an USB Type C charging port. The charging case itself is quite portable, just like the name: 2 inches x 2 inches x 1 inches (52 cm x 52 cm x 21 cm), with just the weight of 1 ounces (27 gr). The surfaces of the charging case is quite fingerprint-resistant, thanks to the matte pattern. SoundPeats also provides a USB Type A to USB Type C charging cable, but the cable is quite short in our opinion, just 5inches (14cm).
Opening the charging case, you will find the 2 earbuds lying down neatly & tightly with the help of magnets. Taking out the earbuds are easily done with just one hand, and the same with putting the earbuds back into the case.
The 2 earbuds resemble the style of Apple AirPods, but a bit fatter in term of width, and a bit shorter. The surfaces of the earbuds seem to be smoother than the charging case. As advertised, SoundPeats True Air 2 comes with IPX4, that means this pair of earbuds can withstand water splash.
SoundPeats True Air 2 also has built-in dual microphones on each earbud to provide highest voice call quality. On the side of each earbud, you will find touch control. From our experiences, controlling the SoundPeats True Air 2 is as easy as taking a call without having to open the phone.
The user manual is a plus, just like any user manual from SoundPeats, as everything is laid out super logical and intuitive. You will find everything you need from this user manual with detailed instructions.
Battery life & charging time
On our real world test, we put volume to 50%-60% and got north of 5 hours playing time, so SoundPeats advertised time of 5 hours is actually on point. On the other hand, we can juice out 4 full charges from the charging case. That means, the SoundPeats True Air 2 can easily provide you full day of music experience without any problem.
Experience the SoundPeats True Air 2
SoundPeats True Air 2 is probably the most affordable TWS earbuds on the market with its own quality Qualcomm QCC3040 chipset. In addition to providing quality sound, the QCC3040 set chip also supports Qualcomm aptX audio decoding technology with the ability to reproduce more detailed sounds, melodious music.
Powered by a pair of 14.2mm larger drivers, not much information about the type of those 2 drivers, but we can expect from SoundPeats will deliver above the standard sound quality. Again, revealing the type of drivers is risky and may seems unnecessary, most people won’t care much about this information, but as a product reviewer, we will take as much information as we could and process those information objectively.
Mellow is the word for SoundPeats True Air 2. High pitched vocal and low pitched vocal is warm & mellow in our opinion. We can imagine the warm vocal will suit the mass, that’s SoundPeats’ strong point: they make products for the mass. The pair of earbuds has plenty of warm bass, but also deep bass as well, thanks to the large drivers. Treble sounds a bit underwhelming in some songs.
SoundPeats True Air 2 does not designed to use with ear tips, that will pose 2 issues: noise isolation & comfort. Noise isolation will be just about standard, and there’s no way around it unless you crank the volume up. Comfort is another issue. In our real-life test, we can wear the earbuds for about 1 hour and begin to experience discomfort. As time passes, most of us will get acquainted to the shape, and start ignore the discomfort.
Voice call quality is the true place where SoundPeats True Air 2 shines. SoundPeats True Air 2 is equipped with CVC Noise Cancellation technology. In our tests, the earbuds deliver sharp, clear voice to the caller on the other end. In most environment, from our home office to a busy coffee shop, True Air 2 still delivers above standards voice call. Only in outdoor with a lot of wind, the voice call quality declines but still acceptable on the other end.
SoundPeats True Air 2 is the perfect earbuds for those who want crystal clear voice call, with warm & mellow sounds. We think most people will appreciate this pair of earbuds, especially for those who want the best bang for the buck.
