BluAnt Pump Air 2 True Wireless Microbuds review: Tiny, affordable earbuds

Last updated:  

Quick verdict: The Pump Air 2 microbuds have decent audio quality for the price and size, but sacrifice battery life for a small charging case.

  • Affordable
  • Extremely lightweight earbuds
  • Seven different ear tips for exceptional fit
  • Small charging case can fit in a pocket
  • Sound quality is decent but not great
  • Short battery life
  • No touch volume controls

Australian electronic company BlueAnt has released its next generation of true wireless earbuds. The Pump Air 2 microbuds are marketed as some of the world's smallest true wireless earbuds.

While the new model has only a few improvements over the first-generation Pump Air earbuds, the Pump Air 2 still offers a lot of bang for your buck.

The BlueAnt Pump Air 2 microbuds don't offer the best audio available, but at an affordable price they don't disappoint either.

If you have the first-generation pair, there's not enough of an improvement to upgrade. But if you want earbuds that fit well both in your ear and in your pocket, the Pump Air 2 microbuds are a solid option.

After using them for several weeks, they've become my go-to daily headphones. Even though they don't offer the audio quality of high-end earbuds, they are the most comfortable in-ear earbuds I've tried and so lightweight that I forget I'm even wearing them. The small case size is perfect for tucking into a small bag or pocket, but the smaller size does sacrifice some charging power and battery life is a big drawback.
