SuperEQ Q2 Pro Hybrid ANC TWS Earbuds Review

SuperEQ Q2 Pro Hybrid ANC TWS Earbuds



There are any number of wireless earbuds to choose from, but the SuperEQ Q2 Pro Hybrid ANC TWS Earbuds offer a lot of bang for the buck.

The earbuds come attractively packaged in a thick, cardboard box with compelling graphics and some gold foil highlights. You shouldn’t judge your earphones by the box, but the high-end presentation does make the earbuds more giftable.

Inside you will find the earbuds inside their charge case, a short user’s guide, and three choices of silicone eartips: small, medium, and large. Once you get the right fit, these are comfortable when placed in the ear.

The charge case is a nice solid plastic.There are three indicator LEDs on the front which shine bright white to indicate charge. Although there is no LCD percent readout, the lights can ‘half-shine’ so you cantell if the earbuds are 0-30%, 30-70%, 70-99%, or 100% charged. The two outer LEDs glow blue when the earbuds are ready to pair via Bluetooth.

The earbuds are your typical in the ear shape. They are similar in shape to my son’s Jabra elites. The earphones are of solid construction and they have a high-end feel. Similar to the Jabras, you control these earbuds by pressing the canter of the earbuds. Unlike the Jabras that give you a mechanical click, these earbuds have ‘soft’ buttons that sense your touch but there is no mechanical or haptic feedback. I’d give Jabra the edge here, as the mechanical click is satisfying, but the Q2 Pros do just fine.

The buttons serve as controls. A long press on either the right or left ear piece will cycle you through noise cancelling on, noise cancelling off, and transparency mode. Short presses can move you forward and backward track to track, play/pause, answer calls, end calls, and summon your phone’s voice assistant. It takes a bit of time to get used to it, but once you get the hang of it the system works pretty well. Again, the touch control is less sure than Jabra mechanical button system, but it works well enough. There is no volume control on the earbuds themselves.

Q2 takes a Bose-speaker type approach to the sound: the sound is precurated. There is no app to make adjustments on the earphones or any equalizer. Of course, you can use a third party equalizer on your phone or your computer if you want to tweak the sound on your own and, if you do, the results of this can be quite stunning. The earbuds are do have a robust dynamic range for all types of music. There is excellent treble, mid-tones, and bass. This contrasts with the higher end Jabra system, where the earbuds have their app where you can personalize your earbuds’ sound. This is a missed opportunity for SuperEQ–these could more easily compete with the upper echelon of earbuds if there was a control app.

Ditto for transparency mode. You get a standard transparency mode with these earphones and there is no adjustability. The Jabras quite nicely offer the ability to hear as much (or as little) of your surroundings as you want. For the Q2Pros you have no control–your stuck with boiler plate transparency.

When it comes to noise cancelling, the Q2Pros do a commendable job. As with most noise cancelling earbuds, the noise has to be consistently in the background. Additionally, the earbuds do less of a good job on higher frequency sounds. If I turn on a vacuum cleaner, the middle tones mostly disappear; however, noise on the higher end of the spectrum is reduced but not cut out. I have not used these on an airplane, but I imagine it would be much the same. Noise would be reduced but higher frequency hiss would not be eliminated. One of the advantages of the noise cancelling with the Q2Pros, though, is like most high end noise cancelling earbuds, the noise cancelling feature does not compromise the music you are listening to via the earbuds. You get 8-11 hours per charge and a total of 30 hours of playtime at full charge with the case.

Overall, the SuperEQ Q2 Pro Hybrid ANC TWS Earbuds compare fairly with earbuds that cost 3-4 times as much as these do. The major miss here is having an app to personalize the sound with an equalizer and customize the transparency mode. Other than that, SuperEQ puts a lot of value at value price point. Recommended.
