Bowie M2 bases: design, construction and battery

The Baseus Bowie M2 already starts rocking by bringing a thin and very flat charging base that makes it much easier to carry the earphones in your pants pocket or armband.

This super stylish charger base has an excellent matte finish that ensures more durability to the product, and features a USB Type-C port for faster and more efficient charging.

The Baseus Bowie M2 earphones have an elongated body, but at the same time are compact, and have a design aimed at the ear canal, which usually generates good bass gain.

And despite being small, the Baseus Bowie M2 achieves a great autonomy of 5 hours of continuous playback with volume at 50%.

And as a bonus, it carries IPX4 protection against dust, sweat and water splashes.

Bowie M2 bases: how to pair with smartphone?

The Baseus Bowie M2 features automatic simultaneous connection, which means that even if you keep one of the sides in the base, the other will continue to work.

And to pair, just take the two sides off the base and they connect to each other and are available in the Bluetooth list. Then just confirm the connection.

The Baseus Bowie M2 is a complete earphone that has a super intuitive application.

In the Baseus app, you have access to battery information, you can activate and deactivate the ANC modes, and you can choose from several digital signatures to customize the earphone to your liking.

And to top it off, through the app you can customize the earphone’s functions and taps.

So, if you want to replace a function you don’t use with something more useful, like increasing and decreasing the volume, just change it in the app.

Bowie M2 Bases: ANC Modes

The Baseus Bowie M2 features 2 noise canceling modes: Transparent Mode and ANC.

Transparent Mode was created to ensure user safety and facilitate communication, as it amplifies external sounds without spoiling the sound quality.

So, this is the ideal mode for those who like to chat while listening to music at the gym, as well as being perfect for cycling on the street, as it allows the cyclist to hear the sounds of traffic.

And we’re happy to say that this mode performed very well in our tests, as it allowed louder sounds to pass through while maintaining sound quality.

ANC is the effective cancellation mode that was created to ensure sound immersion by canceling out all the noise in an environment.

So this is the perfect mode to be used at home while listening to our favorite music or marathoning that famous series.

And during our testing, the ANC mode did relatively well, but it wasn’t perfect.
It managed to drown out the vast majority of external noises, however, it was not able to fully cancel out the loudest sounds.

That is, if you prioritize security, these two ANC modes are perfect for you!

Bowie M2 Bases: Audio Test, Delay Test and Microphone Test

It’s time to find out if the Baseus Bowie M2 really delivers perfect sound quality, so we did our famous audio test!

And as a result, it delivered well-defined tones, powerful bass and an excellent stereo effect.

But, despite being a very rich sound quality, there are those who say that it lacked a little volume. The positive side is that it doesn’t pop any of the tones when it’s at max level.

And to put this Bluetooth 5.2 to the test, we ran Call of Duty on an entry-level smartphone!

And the result of that was a subtle delay of approximately 0.2 seconds. But don’t worry, when we repeated the test on an advanced mid-range smartphone, it didn’t show any lag!

Finally, we did the long-awaited microphone test to find out if this Bluetooth earphone offers good conversational quality.

And it was here that the Baseus Bowie M2 left a little to be desired, as it delivered a relatively muffled and noisy audio.

But calm down! While it wasn’t perfect, it wasn’t the worst mic we’ve ever tested, either. After all, it has a great volume level and doesn’t have those annoying hiss, so it can be used for informal calls and online matches.

Bowie M2 Bases: is it worth it?

Of course!

The Baseus Bowie M2 is a compact and very well-built earphone that carries two ANC modes that fulfill its purpose.

It still delivers an excellent stereo effect and has the ideal volume level not to damage our hearing health.

And while it wasn’t perfect in the delay test, it performed well on an entry-level smartphone, and still delivered zero delay when tested on a more advanced smartphone.

Finally, Baseus’ newest bet brings a good microphone for those who make informal calls.
