Honor Earbuds 2 Lite Review

I want to introduce you to the new headphones from the manufacturer Honor, the Honor Earbuds 2 Lite. TWS headphones with Bluetooth 5.2 low consumption with active noise cancellation have a sound quality that has surprised me. If you want to know more, you can continue reading our review.

More and more manufacturers are betting on TWS (True Wireless Stereo) wireless headphones, promising the perfect balance between sound and long autonomy. On this occasion, we have to thank the Aliexpress Digital Museum for sending us these new Honor Earbuds 2 Lite, which have fascinated me.

First of all, I would like to comment that on the dates that I am testing it, they have not yet been presented and therefore, it may be that there are details of the software that will improve as OTA updates come out.

These headphones will be between 85 and 120 euros, depending on where we buy them and the current offers. I would also like to comment that in the first three days after they go on sale (from July 19 to 23), they will be able to be purchased with a launch offer equivalent to a 50% discount, which leaves these headphones with a very good price and a highly recommended purchase option.

We leave you the link with a discount code:

These headphones come in a white box with the make and model in the upper left and a photograph showing the design of the headphones. The most notable features and specifications of these Honor Earbuds 2 Lite are on the back, the manufacturer’s postal address and the recycling stamps.

Inside the cardboard box are the headphones. As is customary, they are inside their box covered by translucent paper. Below is the 1 meter long USB to USB Type C cable in white, a safety guide, the user guide in different languages ​​, including Spanish, English, Russian, Italian, French etc. And a couple of different-sized earpads.

Everything we could hope for is coming. I want to clarify that the USB to USB type C cable size is identical to what usually comes in smartphones, something that I find very positive.

These Honor Earbuds 2 Lite have the latest and most modern version of Bluetooth connectivity. Specifically, it uses Bluetooth version 5.2 of low consumption, increasing the range and improving audio data transmission between the sending device (for example, the smartphone). And the receiver (headphones).

It is compatible with AAC (Advanced Audio Coding), SBC (Subband Codec, a standard audio coding technology in Bluetooth devices), and audio codecs that provide high-quality sound.

As I said, and as it happens in this new type of headphones, thanks to the manufacturer’s application, we will be able to receive updates that improve performance and offer us new functionalities.

Headphone touch control

Practically all the headphones that come out today on the market have buttons to interact with the smartphone directly and not take it out of the pocket. In this case, they are touch buttons.

Here is a summary of the touches that the Honor EarBuds 2 Lite allows:

When we double-click on any headphones, we will answer calls or play and pause music from our smartphone or device.
If we hold down a headset, the different modes that this headset has will start. These are: alert mode (Awareness mode), activate noise cancellation and deactivate it.

Missing is the ability to adjust the volume from the headphones themselves by sliding your finger on the touch button. This is functionality that if they had my first headphones of this type.

The headphones’ awareness mode’ enables the external microphones used for active noise cancellation to be activated. In this way, if we start a conversation, we can hear what the person is saying more clearly.

As far as the game mode is concerned, I have done different tests with different types of games, and I think they do not provide any tactical advantage, at least with games such as “Call of Duty Mobile” or “shutters.” The delays and latency they offer are quite large. Surely in games that are not competitive and multiplayer, they can be an ideal complement.

AI Live app

According to the quick start guide that comes in the box, these headphones are compatible with the app. AI Live cation is available for Android and iOS from the Google Play app store and AppStore. In addition, and as expected, it is also available in Huawei’s application store, the AppGallery.

This application is very similar to others that we can find in the market. It reminds me of the application that Xiaomi has, the “Mi Home” or even that of the manufacturer Realme the “Realme Link,” which offers the possibility of connecting the home automation devices of each of the brands.

I want to be able to tell you about the application and the configuration that is done through it, but as I will show you in the screenshots that I will leave you below, the new Honor Earbuds 2 Lite could not yet be added and therefore, I could pair them to the “AI Live” app.

The way I have had to link them to my Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G has been traditionally through the Bluetooth configuration. To do this, I have activated Bluetooth in the connectivity settings menu of the smartphone, and I have searched for the device to pair it.

Finally, and before ending this section, there is a way to reset the headphones to factory mode without the need for the application. To do this, and as indicated in the quick start guide, we can reset the settings by pressing the button on the side of the box for 10 seconds. On the other hand, pressing this same button for 2 seconds will enter pairing mode. The LED that incorporates the box will blink white, and we can now link them to our smartphone. By default, the headphones go into pairing mode the first time we take them out of the box.

Design and Materials

These Honor Earbuds 2 Lite headphones have a very good compact and rigid finish. It is made of glossy plastic with a design similar to the famous Apple AirPods Pro, and why not say it too many others from the competition.

These headphones are fairly lightweight at 51.5 grams with the box (the box alone 40.1 grams). Each of the headphones weighs 5.2 grams, which makes them very comfortable to wear. As for the dimensions of the case, they are 45.5 mm high x 61.2 mm wide x 25.35 mm deep.

If I start to compare the headphones that I currently have and that I use daily, the Realme Buds Air with these Honor Earbuds 2 Lite, I have to say that the case is much larger. This makes them have much more battery life. On the other hand, I find it difficult to remove the headphones from the box to put a little downside. As the headset has a rounded shape, they slip when I pick them up, making it difficult to get them out of the box quickly.

On the front of the headphone box, there is a small multicoloured LED, which gives us an idea of ​​the mode we are in. The word “Honor” is written underneath. On the right side of the case, a small button will serve to pair or reset the headphones. This box has a magnetic lid so that it remains closed all the time and only remains open when we remove or store each of the headphones.

In the center part below, there is the USB type C.

The headphones are rigid in shape with several interchangeable ear pads. In this way, we can adjust it to our ear so that it isolates noise passively. I would like to say that this particular model has been perfectly adjusted to my ear, and they have not fallen at any time, even while doing sports activities.

The headset has different sensors, including a capacitive touch button on the outside to stop or resume the sound that we are playing. Right in the head of the headset, we find a ** proximity sensor ** that pauses the content that we are playing when we remove any of the headphones from the ear. It works well.

In the long part of the earpiece are the microphones. These use active ambient noise cancellation technology to reduce and filter background noises for better quality calls. I think that is one of the strengths of these headphones. It is also indicated in the lower part of the handset with the letter “L” (Left) and “R” (Right) for which ear is each of them.

These Honor Earbuds 2 Lite have been very comfortable for me to use. In addition, thanks to the IPX4 certification, we can use them for sports without fear that they can be damaged by sweat.
