Driver configuration: 2BA
This Q2 was kindly provided by Begin Audio.
Probably the most interesting thing about the Q2 is that it comes with your typical MMCX connectors, which allows you to swap between a Bluetooth TWS experience and a traditional wired connection.
Unfortunately, that’s pretty much where my praises for the Q2 end. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not an outright bad set of IEMs, but the tuning leaves a lot to be desired especially in the higher frequencies, where it’s sharp and fatiguing for longer listening sessions. Not to mention the presence of that thin, plasticky texturing to the notes that I commonly refer to as “BA timbre”, that the Q2 exhibits pretty badly. The usual suspects of other generic BA IEMs are also here; sub-par bass response without proper downward extension, borderline-shouty upper midrange and lack of upward treble extension as well.
It’s interesting to see a TWS IEM using BAs (a rarity in this market), but ultimately it’s not about what drivers you use but how you use them. And for the Q2, the implementation is nothing special.
