Edifier TWS NB2 Review

Welcome to my review of the Edifier TWS NB2 Pro Bluetooth earbuds. I’ve used a previous set of Edifier earbuds a lot, the NeoBuds Pro.

Another set of earbuds from Edifier but can they keep the same quality as with other Edifier products I’ve reviewed?

Same Brand, Great Sound.

The Hardware

Upon opening the fancy box, we see our new earbuds in their glory. The first thing you’ll notice is how the charging case has a leather look to it. It is entirely made of plastic though. That’s not a bad thing in my opinion as it helps keep the costs down.

The earbuds themselves are very well presented and come with a nice little bag that you can keep the charging case and earbuds in to help protect them. The bag feels of high quality and definitely feels like it would protect your newly purchased buds when being tossed around in a backpack or holdall bag.

Nice big box.

Inside the box, we get the earbuds and charging case, of course. As well as that we have the aforementioned travel bag, a couple of leaflets, some replacement tips in different sizes, and a USB C charging cable.

The earbuds and case both feel nice and solid. I reckon they could take a fair few bashes/drops onto the ground!

Speaking of durability, they also have IP54-rated surfaces so will be protected from dust and water.

Design and Functionality

The earbuds come in two colour options, black, and ivory. I received the black pair for my review. Both options look rather nice to be fair. The buds themselves feel nice both in the hand and in your ears.

Like a baby in the crib.

The sound of the Edifier TWS NB2 earbuds is actually pretty bloody impressive considering they’re under the £100 marker. They have a 10mm driver with a “composite diaphragm”. To be honest that doesn’t mean much to me but it sounds cool!

The earbuds will be great for taking calls on also as they have dual-mic noise cancellation to help the caller hear you and not what’s going on around you as much. One very fantastic addition to these over the Edifier NeoBuds Pro I use is the auto in-ear detection. This means if you take the buds out of your ear(s) for whatever reason the music will pause. Placing them back in your ears will result in the music continuing the playback. In the words of Bill and Ted, excellent!

These earbuds also have “Smart Master-Slave switching”. This allows the left and right earbuds to switch functions for mono or stereo use. That’s pretty handy as I’ve had a pair of wireless earbuds in the past that you had to use a certain earbud when only using one of them.

As with most modern wireless earbuds these offer Active Noise Cancellation and it works very well. There are three modes to use here, ambient sound, normal mode, and noise reduction mode. It must be noted that noise reduction mode can only be used when both earbuds are in. This makes total sense and the other two modes can be used whether you have one or both of the earbuds in your ear(s). The Edifier TWS NB2 also has a gaming mode. In this mode, the latency can be low as 80ms. This ensures gamers can enjoy their game along with great sound.

Connection and Software

The Edifier TWS NB2 supports Bluetooth 5.0 for connection to your devices. Of course, this is the only way you can connect them to a device. But that’s obvious really.

They also support the Edifier Connect App which is available via iOS and Android. This is a handy app that’s free and will automatically recognise which earbuds or headphones you have and allow you to perform different options for your hardware.

The app is pretty useful and gives you quick access to different functions such as changing your noise-cancellation mode. As you can see above it also tells you the remaining battery of your earbuds as well as the charging case.

Conclusions

The Edifier TWS NB2 is a fantastic pair of buds with a couple of nice improvements over the Edifier NeoBuds Pro. Are they better than the NB Pro? Audio-wise, I don’t think so. However, they cost a lot less so when you weigh that up I think that the NB2 comes out on top.

I highly recommend you purchase these if you’re in the market for a new set of buds. If you want to check out more about them you can visit the Edifier website.

I give the Edifier TWS NB2 a score of 9/10.
