Today I’ll be writing a review for the SoundPEATS Wings2 Wireless Earbuds. Over the last 6 years I’ve reviewed 6 products from the SoundPEATS range, I’ve been a massive fan for quite a while and always look forward to trying out and writing a review for SoundPEATS. Today’s offering for these Wings2 wireless earbuds being no different.
The SoundPEATS Wings2 Wireless Earbuds are designed for those active types, the over-ear hooks have been designed to keep the earbuds in place whilst you move about. You get an impressive 13mm dynamic driver, and the latest Bluetooth V5.3 wireless connection, with a 10M range.
You also get SoundPEATS game mode available too, with an awesome 70ms low latency too, which means better synchronisation between audio and video. Also ideal for watching YouTube videos too, with no out of sync lip movements.
The SoundPEATS app also enables you to custom your audio too. Manually adjust the equaliser and update the firmware, all within the app.
But are these earbuds any good? Time to test them out!
Packaging and Contents.
The SoundPEATS Wings2 Wireless Earbuds come packaged in a cardboard box, which shows product images and specifications printed on it. The box measures 11.9cm x 10.8cm x 4.0cm and weighs 140G.
Inside the box you’ll find the following: 1x Charging Box (with earbuds inside), 1x USB-A/USB-C Charging Cable (Which has a length of 18.0cm), 1x Multi-Lingual User Guide.
As mentioned above, the supplied charging cable only measures 18.0cm, but you’re free to use any USB-C charging cable. To fully charge the charging case takes around 1.5 hours, this will allow you to utilise around 30 hours of audio enjoyment. This is based on 8 hours play time each charging cycle from the charging case, before that requires a recharge itself.
A constant blue light on the charging box indicates a fully charged cycle.
SoundPEATS Wings2 Wireless Earbuds.
The SoundPEATS Wings2 Wireless Earbuds charging case measures 8.0cm x 6.0cm x 3.5cm and weighs 70G (This includes the earbuds too). You also get a handy loop attached to the side too, ideal for storage or clipping onto a bag for example.
When you open the case you’ll find the right earbuds on the left and the left earbud on the right, takes some time to get used to. Yes, I did keep attempting to put them into the wrong ear. SoundPEATS need to put them in correct order, moving the opening of the closure to the other side would solve this.
Each earbud features a 210° ergonomic ear hook, this hook is made from soft materials, to fit the earbuds you need to hook over your ear, then slowly rotate until they sit into your ear. You can’t wear them comfortably if you’re wearing glasses, something I found out while writing this review (only wear glasses for laptop use). Each earbud weighs only 8G each.
To pair, simply remove them for the charging case, perform a Bluetooth search on your device and pair. That’s it! Nice and easy, they’ll also automatically pair each time when removed from the case too.
The SoundPEATS Wings2 Wireless Earbuds feature touch control too. You get touch-sensitive areas on each earbud. Below are the controls of each earbud:
- Pause/Play Audio: Double tap either earbud.
- Volume Up: Single tap the right earbud.
- Volume Down: Single tap the left earbud.
- Next Track: Press and hold the right earbud for 1.5s.
- Previous Track: Press and hold the left earbud for 1.5s.
- Answer/Hang Up Phone Call: Double tap either earbud.
- Reject an Incoming Call: Press and hold either earbud for 1.5s.
- Switch Between Two Active Calls: Press and hold either earbud for 2s.
- Activate Voice Assistant: Tap the right earbud three times.
- Activate Game Mode: Tap the left earbud three times.
The touch sensitivity works well, very precise. SoundPEATS are very good at producing audio with accurate touch sensitive user controls.
You can also custom set up your earbuds via the SoundPEATS app. I’ve previously written about the SoundPEATS app, so won’t repeat it again, to know more about the app, click here.
You do need the app to provide firmware updates. I had to update the earbuds from V2.5 to V3.0, upgrading took around 2 minutes. SoundPEATS will continue to provide updates too.
The SoundPEATS Wings2 Wireless Earbuds sound OK. Nothing too spectacular, nothing too terrible either. They’re mid. I think a lot of the audio issues come from the leakage as you’re not able to produce a tight audio seal between the earbud and inner ear canal. You can manually adjust the equaliser from within the SoundPEATS app, so that helps slightly to enhance your listening experience.
Noise isolation and noise cancellation are below par, especially from SoundPEATS, but I guess it is what it is. They’re a pair of earbuds for running and exercising, so primarily they’re designed to stay in place with movement, with audio quality coming second in my opinion. They do in fact stay in pace when moving about, the Bluetooth signal is strong too, thanks to the JL6973D4 chipset, with no loss of audio at all. The SoundPEATS game mode works fantastic though, I wasn’t able to notice any lip sync issues with video play.

A rather mixed review for the SoundPEATS Wings2 Wireless Earbuds. For me the audio lets them down, on a positive note, the fitment does in fact prevent movement. So, I guess it depends on what you wish to use them for, are they for exercise use? or, for audio listening pleasure?
