As someone who talks on the phone and listens to music everyday, I always make it a point to use some of the best headphones and earbuds out there while having some backup ones on hand. The latest ones to come my way are the 1More ComfoBuds 2 True Wireless Headphones. Once you setup everything on the companion app, these make for a good sound experience for at home or on the go.
As with most wireless earbuds, these come in a small case that charges the earbuds which also in turn can be charged with the provided USB-C cable. As soon as you open the case, the buds go into pairing mode so you can easily connect them to your mobile device via Bluetooth. From there you can pick between two silicone ear tips (small or large) to place on the IPX5 Water Resistant buds, insert into your ears to make sure they’re secure and snug, and go to town.
Well, actually you could do that, but you’d be missing out on all the key features these contain. To access these, you’ll need to download the companion app that gives you all the features you want and then some. There’s EQ settings you can choose from that take advantage of the 13.4mm dynamic drivers these have, along with the AAC codec when used with Apple devices.
I was surprised to learn these have a “Gaming Mode” that reduces audio latency when you’re playing mobile games which is a nice touch, and there’s an option to customize the touch controls of the earbuds, and enable auto pause/play when you remove or insert the buds, and more.
The dual ENC microphones serve to capture your voice nicely when using these for phone calls and work to suppress background noise so the person you’re talking with can hear more of you and less of your environment. The ComfoBuds 2 seem to have a nice battery life, as I got nearly six hours listening on medium volume, and the charging case provides an additional 18 hours of time (aka three more charges). And if you really need to use them after running on empty, you can get nearly three hours from just 15 minutes of charging.
The 1More ComfoBuds 2 True Wireless Headphones make for a nice audio experience, as long as you don’t mind having to download and rely on a companion app to access all of their features. So if you’re looking for some earbuds to use on calls and listen to music that won’t break the bank, you’ll want to get comfy with these.
