Cyrus Audio announces soundBuds2 in-ear headphones

Cyrus Audio has unveiled its second-generation soundBuds2 true wireless in-ear headphones complete with a sleek, modern design, improved larger drivers, longer battery life and capacitive touch controls.

British, high-end audio manufacturer Cyrus Audio has used its nearly 4 decades of design and manufacturing expertise to improve its original soundBuds earphones with a worthy successor. 

The result is the soundBuds2 which retains the lightweight but durable construction and solid Bluetooth connectivity of the first version and adds larger drivers, longer battery life and capacitive touch controls.

Looking to prove their worth as work-from-home earphones, the soundBuds2 focus on sound quality and long-lasting comfort. 

The 10m Bluetooth range and crystal-clear built-in microphone mean it’s possible to move around the home as you take hands-free calls while maintaining the option to switch to music once the conversation is over.

The soft ear hooks and snug and stable fit, coupled with IPX5 rated water resistance, make the soundBuds2 equally suited to exercise or outdoor use, where sweat or rain wont cause them any issues.

The new 6mm drivers offer a carefully balanced sound with a neutral tone and excellent dynamic range and audio enthusiasts will enjoy the higher-fidelity sound that has been prioritized over ‘signal processing’, so they operate without the phasing artifacts of noise-cancellation.

The soundBuds2 hold enough charge for five hours of playback and the pocket-sized fast-charging case with one hour rapid charges can provide a further 15 hours for a total of 20 hours of listening.

The headphones weigh just 4.3g each and are supplied with three different sized ear-tips to accommodate most ear sizes.

Simon Freethy, Managing Director of Cyrus said, “Based on the success of the soundBuds, Cyrus listened to the wants and needs of their customers to design an even better in-ear headphone. 

“We have retained the extremely light weight “fit and forget” design and a small case for “slip in your pocket” portability.  Again, we have focused on combining this with superior audio and soundBuds2 are sonically a step up over the previous model. Auto pairing, new touch controls and increased battery life have all enhanced the ease of use. The one thing that has not changed is the price, making them even better value.”  

The Cyrus Audio soundBuds2 will be available Q2 2021 on Amazon for £79.99 / $119.
