iQOO held a launch event in China that introduced the iQOO TWS 2 and the iQOO Pad Air. Both new products are available at an affordable price and aim to offer good overall value. We have already reviewed the iQOO Pad Air in detail, which you can read all about by clicking this link.

Now let’s briefly introduce the iQOO TWS 2 wireless earphones. Currently, the Bluetooth earphones are available in China at a price of 399 yuan, which is about 55 dollars. At this price, they offer a lot that you can’t find even in the $100 and up range.

Key highlights of iQOO TWS 2 Earbuds

As we hinted earlier, the iQOO TWS 2 earphones come with a lot of advanced features. Here is a brief description of the distinguishers:

Premium audio codec support

One of the big highlights of the headset is the LDAC support and aptX Adaptive. These are two of the high-end codecs you usually see in flagship headphones like the Sony WF-1000XM5 and Bose QuietComfort Ultra Earbuds. With these codecs, you get a detailed audio transmission that preserves the sound quality.

Of course, not all smartphones come with support for aptX Adaptive and LDAC. So, for wide compatibility, iQOO TWS 2 has support for AAC and SBC as well.

Advanced audio driver setup

Premium codecs won’t mean anything if your wireless headset driver setup can’t deliver. Well, the good news is that iQOO TWS 2 has advanced driver configuration. The buds come with 12.2mm ultra-wideband drivers. They can offer a frequency range of 16 Hz to 48 KHz.

In addition, TWS 2 offers you the option to customize the sound according to your preferences. There are tons of sound effects to choose from. But if you don’t want to go through the hassle of fine-tuning, you can opt for Adaptive EQ. There is also a special sound effect for e-sports from Monster Sound in these wireless headphones.

Noise canceling performance and connectivity of iQOO TWS 2

To further enhance the audio experience, the iQOO TWS 2 earphones have effective Active Noise Canceling (ANC) technology. To be specific, the Buds’ ANC can provide up to 55 dB of noise reduction. This means you can get a properly immersive audio listening experience with these headphones.

In terms of connectivity, the iQOO TWS 2 earphones have Bluetooth 5.4. It’s the latest standard, which means you get all the latest wireless technology. This includes fast pairing and a 44ms low latency mode. The latter can be useful for racing games.

Other features of the headphones

Apart from everything mentioned above, iQOO TWS 2 also has a good microphone setup. It can focus on your voice and offer you a good calling experience even in noisy environments. Next comes the battery life, which is quite reliable. The buds can offer up to 45 hours of operation with a fully charged bag.

Low latency audio

Other highlights include an IP54 rating for hassle-free outdoor listening and fast charging. The buds are available in electric white and phantom yellow. There is no word on global availability yet, but the iQOO TWS 2 may be rebranded as the vivo TWS 4 for international markets.
