Oraimo recently launched the 2baba Freepods 2 true wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds into the Nigerian market. After a month’s review, I can gladly say the earbuds are a high-quality product.
Oraimo 2baba Freepods 2 TWS earbuds in collaboration with the greatest of all time musician, 2face Idibia produced one of the best earbuds in terms of quality, design and sound.
We got our hands on the 2baba version ( black colour) true wireless earbuds and here is our detailed review.
What’s in the Box?
The box comes in dark glossy packaging with a picture of the music legend, 2baba at the front while the back and side contain specifications, lab test result and a warranty of the device. The packaging contains:
- Left and right Earbud
- Charging Case
- User Manual
- A black short micro USB charging cable
- User manual
- Weight: Earbud (4g each); Charging case: 31g
- Bluetooth Version: V5.0
- Talk range: 10m
- Driver: 13mm Dynamic driver for each earbud
- Earbud Battery Capacity: 37mAh
- Charging case battery capacity: 500mAh
- Model: OEB- E94D

How to pair and set up the Earbuds
Tap and hold on to the left and right earbuds for a few seconds to switch on the device. Once it is turned on, a steady green light indicator will show for one second. The earbuds connect to any device by pairing using Bluetooth. Once you remove any of the earbuds inside the charging case and pair them with your smartphone, it connects automatically with “Oraimo Freepods2 2Baba.”
During the first time of pairing, make sure the distance of the earbuds and your device is less than 1 metre. After connecting, the voice you hear is from 2baba saying “Connected” and when you switch it off you hear him say “Disconnected”, that’s pretty cool. This also applies when the battery is low.
Oraimo FreePods 2 Premium Design and Build Quality
The Oraimo FreePods 2 earbuds come in a glossy black finish with 2baba tuned edition text inside the circle of the touch sensor. The earbud status indicator is below the touch sensor and the microphone is positioned at the bottom of each earbud. The front of the case has the 2baba signature on it and a text written “One Love” beneath. Under the case is the charging port and at the back, we have the model number, battery capacity and voltage input.
The ergonomic earbuds are designed to conform to the shape of the ear canal which makes it fit comfortably inside the ear easily.
A combination of black and gold colour makes the earbuds and charging case beautiful. At the tip of each earbud is a gold rounded design, when looking from afar it looks like an ear ring.
Oraimo claims that each earbuds is 4 grams, while the charging case is 31grams. This makes both the earbuds and charging case a lightweight.
Anytime the earbuds are removed from the case, they pair with your smartphone. The performance of the earbuds is impressive and sounds shockingly great considering how affordable the device is.
Good clarity while receiving calls, don’t expect too much in terms of bass, it is super loud with a great listening experience. The rich sound is a result of the 13mm dynamic driver.

Battery life of the Charging case and Earbuds
At full charge, the battery can last up to 2 hours for playing music non-stop. According to Oraimo lab test result, the battery life gives up to 82 hours of standby time, 3 hours 30 minutes of play time and 3 hours of talk time. I had at least 10 incoming calls and 8 outgoing calls and the battery life took me two days while standby time was up to three days.
The charging case comes with a 500mAh battery capacity giving each earbud with a 37mAh battery capacity of up to 8 full charges and taking about one hour 30 minutes. The charging time for the case was about 2 hours and 45 minutes.
Earbuds charge automatically when returned to the charging case and it shows a steady red light indicator. Once it is fully charged, the lights are off. To charge the case connect the USB cable to a power adapter, each green light shows the battery level till it is fully charged. The earbuds sit comfortably inside the charging case because of the intelligent magnetic attraction.
Oraimo Freepods 2 Earbuds Controls using the touch sensor
The left and right earbuds have responsive touch controls that allow each user to effortlessly perform multiple functions such as answering and receiving calls, and adjust music volume with a simple touch. The functions are all highlighted below:
- To play or pause tap on one earbud twice.
- For a previous track, tap and hold on to the left earbud or for the next track tap and hold on the left earbud for 1.5 seconds.
- For volume down, tap the left earbud three times while for volume up, tap the right earbud three times.
- To answer or end the call, tap on any of the earbuds once or twice.
- To reject a call, tap and hold on to one earbud for 2 seconds.
