CMF Buds Pro 2: Specs and Features

The new Buds Pro 2 takes inspiration from the CMF Buds (review) with a square-shaped case that houses a physical wheel at the top left. This time, however, it’s not a lanyard-cable module. Instead, CMF has incorporated a customizable smart dial that you can use to adjust volume and control media playback on the Buds 2 Pro.

You can use the Nothing X app to customize the controls of the smart dial. This includes switching between noise cancellation, activating voice assistant, low lag mode, and more.

On the inside, the CMF Buds Pro 2 packs a dual driver system comprising an 11 mm bass driver and a 6 mm micro-planar tweeter. It’s accompanied by Dirac Opteo and Ultra Bass Technology 2.0. The earbuds support all the standard audio codecs, including AAC, SBC, and LDAC in this price bracket.

CMF’s latest offering comes with Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation that’s rated at up to 50 dB and works on a frequency range of up to 5000 Hz. The built-in Adaptive Mode can automatically adjust the ANC level based on the ambient noise around you. For calls, the earbuds use CMF’s Clear Voice Technology 2.0 alongside the 6-microphone setup to offer clear and loud sound.

In terms of power, the Buds Pro 2 comes with a 460 mAh battery on the case and 60 mAh per bud. The brand claims that the earbuds with the case can last up to 43 hours with ANC off and up to 26 hours with ANC or Transparent mode turned on.

CMF’s new smartwatch is enclosed in an aluminum alloy case that supports interchangeable bezels.
