[Full Review] realme Buds Wireless 2S – Is it worth the money?


Howdy, hello. I purchased realme Buds Wireless 2S Neckband (Black with Yellow Color) during the first sale on July 27 at a discounted price of Rs. 1300. This product is a new addition to realme’s line of wireless earphones in India.

Let’s dive into the review of the realme Buds Wireless 2S:

Box Contents

After unboxing the realme Buds Wireless 2S, we will find a user manual that will walk you through how everything on the neckband works. Following that, you’ll receive two different-sized sets of extra ear tips, which you may swap out for the medium-sized ear tips that come standard. Along with the Buds Wireless 2S, you get a little USB Type-C charging cable. I picked the Realme Black with Yellow colour variant, but you may also go with the all-Blue colour variant.

Design & Build Quality

The design of the neckband is the first thing people will notice, and unfortunately, it is quite simple and lacks any distinguishing features, making it look like all the other neckbands in this price range. But the yellow variant I ordered has a realme theme, making it stand out from the crowd of similarly priced neckbands. After picking up the neckband, I could tell that Realme had done a wonderful job with the build quality. The neckband is surprisingly flexible and supple for something that appears to be so nicely made, and it feels rather strong in the hands.

The neckband is quite comfortable, thanks to its lightweight build, which weighs roughly 24 grammes. This light body contributes to the neckband’s comfort when worn for an extended period of time. When you remove the magnetic ear tips from your ears, they snap quickly. It has an IPX4 rating, which means it can tolerate dust, sand, and light rain showers.

All of the controls, including a play/pause button and volume up and down buttons, are located on the right side of the neckband. The play/pause button can be used to turn on and off the neckband, as well as to access your Google Voice Assistant. The Realme Link app can also be used to personalise this button.


Let’s now talk about the overall comfort of the Realme Buds Wireless 2S. As already mentioned, the neckband is light and pleasant to wear, even for extended periods of time. During my testing session, I wore it for around 4-5 hours, and it was fairly comfortable—much like the neckbands from realme’s earlier iterations. The ear tips are excellently made because they fit into the ears perfectly and block a sizable quantity of ambient noise. Due to their lighter weight and plastic construction, these ear tips won’t irritate your ears

Features & Connectivity

We all adore Realme for its feature-rich products, and the Realme Buds Wireless 2S is another excellent product from the company. First off, it has Bluetooth 5.3, making it the first neckband in its price category to have the newest Bluetooth version.

The magnetic ear tips, which automatically detach from your device when the two ear tips snap together, are the next outstanding feature. The good news is that they instantly re-connect after being separated and that this process takes hardly any time. When you think about how slow most Bluetooth devices in this price range are at reconnecting, this is an impressive feature.

The most recent Bluetooth 5.3 technology delivers excellent performance, low latency, and a robust and steady connection. Three pre-set music modes are available with the Realme Link app, which you may switch between based on how you’re feeling. Additionally, there is a low-latency gaming mode that is excellent at reducing latency and is a useful feature for people who wish to play games while wearing a neckband. Also, almost all of the most recent Realme, Oppo, MI, and OnePlus devices are compatible with this neckband’s Dirac Music compatibility, which improves the sound quality.

The neckband’s microphone also does a fantastic job of recording crystal-clear audio with minimal background noise. Even though there will be some background noise when using it outside, you may still use it for calls and meetings without any issues.

Audio Quality

Finally, we reach the most important section—the audio quality. You receive substantial 11.2 mm drivers that provide a respectable, bass-rich audio output. A neckband at this price point should support SBC and AAC codecs, which the Buds Wireless 2S does. You receive a generally respectable sound output with a respectably large sound stage. While the treble seems a little high and occasionally overpowers the vocals, the mids and vocals are incredibly rich. Additionally, you get AI ENC noise cancellation, which does a respectable job of eliminating background noise.

Overall, the audio quality is quite good for the price. It would undoubtedly surpass some of the other neckbands in the sub-Rs. 2,000 pricing range, but it is one of the best under Rs. 1500.


In terms of the battery life, Realme claims that the Realme Buds Wireless 2S can last for roughly 24 hours, which is an upgrade over the previous generation Realme Buds Wireless 2 Neo, which only provided 17 hours of backup. I received a backup of around 20 hours on the actual premises, which is very good. Yes, it is not the greatest on the market, but most people find it adequate. The neckband supports Dart charging, which means a rapid 20-minute charge will provide you with a backup of almost seven continuous hours.

Conclusion: Is the Realme Buds Wireless 2S worth the money?

The realme Buds Wireless 2S is a neckband that offers a wide range of features. As you may have already read, the realme Buds Wireless 2S is a good neckband for the price. The features it offers are really great for the price point, and the audio quality it offers is fair. It would be included in technspice list of the top neckbands under 2,000 rupees since it is one of the best-sounding neckbands available for under Rs. 1,500. However, you can find some better options with greater audio quality if you can increase your budget to Rs. 2,000.
