As you may know, high-end headphones and earbuds are my jam. Speakers, too. So when Edifier got in touch about a new set of high-end earbuds, I had to check it out. If you’re interested, click here to read my full review.
The Edifier NeoBuds Pro 2 comes equipped with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) that can reach depths of -50dB thanks to the Knowles RAN Balanced Armature Driver, which is a similar type of driver you find in hearing aids. The on-board ANC can also be customized to fit within the current environment. High is best suited for loud areas like commutes, medium for the office, and ambient to let the wearer hear traffic while blocking out weather-based sounds like wind and rain.
The Edifier NeoBuds Pro 2 also comes equipped with an upgraded AI voice pick-up algorithm to help improve the overall sound profile and call quality. That’s as well as spatial audio and visualized head-tracking tech alongside a gyrometer and accelerometer to keep track of head movements. The NeoBuds Pro 2 should be, in theory, able to jump headfirst into 3D audio. That’s the theory, anyway.
On the sound front, the NeoBuds Pro 2 runs with up to 192kHz in 24-bit, music streaming over Bluetooth using the latest LHDC 5.0 HD codec. In simpler terms, these are some next-gen hi-res earbuds. There’s also a low-latency gaming mode for those of us who use earbuds or headphones that are overkill for gaming. That’s me. I do that.
As with other Edifier audio products, the NeoBuds Pro 2 will be compatible with the Edifier Connect App if you want to tweak anything.
Battery-wise, Edifier tells me the NeoBuds Pro 2 should last 22 hours, and can be fully charged from just the case alone. Nice! If you’re thinking of picking them up, they’re available now for $129.99/£129.99.
I should have a review for the NeoBuds Pro 2 coming in the next few weeks, so feel free to check back in with me to find out what I make of them.
