Edifier TWS NB2 vs TWS6 – Design & Appearance Comparison

Before we talk about the way these two pairs of wireless headphones work, let’s talk a bit about the most notable thing, their design. At first glance, we can see that these two are very similar since both have the very useful and popular full in-ear design, which gives them the opportunity to position themselves in a great way inside the ear, avoiding so there are so many problems when the user is on the move.

Likewise, these wireless headphones are ergonomic and very light, in addition to being adaptable to any size of the ear since they have sport rubbers of three different dimensions. It is worth noting that they are not resistant to scratches and bumps, so you have to be very careful with them. Also, the Edifier TWS NB2 has the IPX4 certification and the TWS6 has the IPX5 certification, which will allow users to use them when doing activities where sweat is involved.

Having said that, and this being one of the best characteristics that these two earbuds have in common, is that they all have touch panels, which although they are not capable of carrying out complicated actions, do work with the most basic and important controls.

Edifier TWS NB2 vs TWS6 – Comfort & Wearing Experience Comparison

Concerning the comfort that these headphones offer, ultimately they have many points in their favor. Since they are made of plastic, the earbuds are extremely light, in addition to having three silicone ear tips (S, M, and L) which are suitable for almost every ear size. Likewise, and due to their comfort and the certifications they have, they can be used not only as common headphones, but they can also be used when exercising since they cling very closely to the ear, which is always a big plus point.

About wearing, they can be used for a long time as long as the appropriate size of ear tips is being used, although, and like any other headset made of plastic, it can be a bit annoying for some users.

Edifier TWS NB2 vs TWS6 – Charging Case Comparison

Now, and talking about the charging case of these earbuds, the truth is that there is not much difference between them. Both cases have a magnetic closure mechanism, which can assure us that it will not open with any movement we make, thus keeping the headphones safe. All are charged through a micro-USB port, which is charged thanks to a USB Type-C cable provided by the same company.

About their capacity, the charging case of both pairs of earbuds has on their inside a battery with a capacity of 500mAh.

Edifier TWS NB2 vs TWS6 – Hardware & Performance Comparison

When it comes to hardware, many people would think that some high-end chip made by some popular company is inside these headphones, and that’s the case for one of these two earbuds. The Edifier TWS NB2 works together with a chip made by Bestechnic, the Bestechnic BES2300YP. On the other hand, and being the one who works along with a Qualcomm chip, the TWS6, works together with a Qualcomm QCC5124 chip.

With that being said, one of the highlights of these products is the master switch added to each earbud. This means that either of the earbuds will serve as the main earbud and will carry the functions of the main earbud (play, pause, call, forward, etc.). This is a useful approach because if you lost an earbud or one of the earbuds gets faulty, one can easily use another earbud as a mono earphone with the same functionality.

Edifier TWS NB2 vs TWS6 – Sound Quality Comparison

Now moving to the sound quality, we must clarify something that is very important, and that is that we are talking about two pairs of very different earbuds since one is a True Wireless headphone, which usually reduces the sound quality a bit that provides for greater comfort while the other focuses more on sound quality. The Edifier TWS NB2 has a 10mm dynamic driver, which, although it does not allow you to give the best quality sound, is still able to function in a good way on a day-to-day basis. On the other hand, the TWS6 works along with Balanced Armature Driver, that have a specifically tuned frequency to the driver to make sure it sounds right.

These drivers are smaller than a regular Dynamic Driver, which has, as a result, a pair of earbuds that are capable of giving amazing details, a faster response, and an impressive treble

Edifier TWS NB2 has:

  • Better noise handling than TWS6
  • Better active noise canceling than TWS6

TWS6 has:

  • Better leakage performance than Edifier TWS NB2
  • Better imaging than Edifier TWS NB2
  • Better noise isolation than Edifier TWS NB2
  • Better passive soundstage than Edifier TWS NB2
  • Better treble accuracy than Edifier TWS NB2

Having said that, by being placed correctly on the ear, these two earbuds are capable of keeping external noises moderately opaque, and that is that although external sounds could still be heard a little, everything can be solved by setting the volume of what it is being listened to 100%, which is performing in a good way.

Edifier TWS NB2 vs TWS6 – Talking / Call Experience Comparison

About the experience in calls, there’s no microphone difference in these four earphones. They have the same mic. Also, the call quality is just average, nothing special. They can be easily used when talking on the phone in any closed space, although the problem comes when they are used in open spaces with noise; the audio and microphone quality drop immediately, and if there is a lot of noise, it will be almost impossible to have a conversation that can be understood.

Edifier TWS NB2 vs TWS6 – Connectivity Comparison

Due to the use of Bluetooth 5.0, the connectivity of these two headphones to other devices is of high quality, in addition to is capable of greater stability, battery optimization, and have a faster connection speed. Both pairs of earbuds have a range of 10 to 15 meters of connectivity and, on top of that, we found that they can be used separately and linked in the same way. Also, they automatically connect after removing them from the box after being paired with another device.
