The Cleer Audio Ally Plus II True Wireless Noise Cancelling Earbuds deliver industry-leading noise cancellation, and battery life for up to 11 hours of playback with just the earbuds. Its strong wireless connectivity, enhanced call quality with dual-microphones and Qualcomm cVc 8th generation noise reduction technology make these a perfect companion for on-the-go lifestyles. Complemented by the Cleer+ app, users can customize both the noise-cancelling and sound performance of the Ally Plus II.
As for the active noise cancelling feature, it makes a dramatic difference when turned on. It filters and reduces most sound well and helps me to get immersed in whatever I’m watching or listening to. This feature however does have its limits, while it can handle most common shop noises. That being said I wasn’t disappointed with it. It was still certainly better than not having any ear protection at all. Other things in the shop that caused erratic feedback were air hammers and the 1 in. Impact that we use for tires. I don’t think this product was made to handle all that. Although, in practice, I would be using my earmuffs over my headphones for stuff like that anyway.
Cleer Audio Ally Plus II True Wireless Noise Cancelling Earbuds Review
As far as I can tell the microphones on it works well. For voice calls, FaceTime, and zoom meetings nobody seemed to have any issues hearing me.
In my experience battery life is very mixed depending on what you are using the earbuds for. After a full night of work, switching between podcasts and just leaving them on standby, using mostly ambient sound setting (only toggling to noise-cancelling on my breaks or when using a loud tool) the batteries died after about 8 hours. I imagine these two settings drain the battery a lot faster because the next day I used them with both those settings off and they were still at 60% charge by the end of my10 hour shift.
As far as all the other aspects of the earbuds they worked well. They start pairing as soon as you open the lid. I paired them with my S20 Ultra and iPhone 12 Mini with no issues. After reading the manual and doing a little fiddling on my own for a few minutes I quickly learned how to switch between sound modes, pause/play music and videos, and raise/lower the volume. And last, as far as sound quality goes I enjoyed these, it’s enjoyable and the sound comes through clean and crisp.
Overall, I have no issue recommending the Cleer Audio Ally Plus II True Wireless Noise Cancelling Earbuds to anyone. Finally, check out our other audio reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
