The CL2 Planar Wireless Bluetooth headphones feature review
The RHA CL2 Planar earphones are wireless earbuds that come with planer magnetic drivers. These have cutting edge audio technology. This feature is usually seen in open-backed studio headphones. These headphones are well for their incredible audio and depth details. Also, this has around 16-micrometer diaphragm. This has a planar coil with two magnetic fields. The earphones cost under $500.
You will start with the hard case you get cables and wires inside with an alternate soft zip pouch. You can skip the bag and carry the small zipper pouch. There are nine separate ear tips that also includes the double-tipped covers and which have memory foam to them.
You can choose between the wireless and wired play options. The wireless option connects to a band and sits around the neck as a usual neckband design neckband. This has a protruding power button and also a USB C charging port. This has a cable trail that comes down to your pocket easily. You can use the 3.5 mm braided copper cable that jacks straight into the phone laptop or other device.
There is also a 2.5 mm silver coated cable that is linked with the amp and has a slight enhancement. You always have the option to swap between MMCX- standard cable. There is no inline remote which is quite disappointing.
The earbuds are build of an indestructible ceramic compound and have plenty of air inside it. This helps in minimizing interference with the sound. These are comfortable to wear even with the bulb-like design they come with. The buds inside your ear fit naturally. You will have to reshape the cable slightly every time. These are not those casual earphones you will slip on to easily.
Setup of the Headphones
The earbuds have to be attached to the cable or the Bluetooth neckband. These have a snap-fit theory and pull connector. The alignment is a bit tricky, but it is not a big deal after you have set up it for once. You have to set hence and forth between wired and wireless connections. The left and right markings help to connect them properly. This way it is easily swayed.
Switching them off is also a task. The power button is inside where you can see and there are two separate capsules which power play and pause. When you switch on the earphones there is a voice prompt which tells about the battery percentage.
Sound quality of RHA CL2 Planar
According to the review, these RHA CL2 Planar headphones are truly incredible for their sound quality. These have a remarkable soundstage. The sounds produced by the headphones are beautifully balanced. The treble and mid-range are also detailed and the bass of the headphone is quite impressive. There is more clarity to the depth and sound produced by the headphones.
These don’t come with the active noise canceling feature but the passive sound cancelation is great. The sounds isolate up to a quite good range. They block the external and internal voices.

The earphones come with the Zirconium dioxide which is used to create sturdy earphones. The battery life is about 12 hours which is ok.
The neckband connects simultaneously you can use it in both forms passive and active. This comes with a 3.5mm detachable cable and 2.5mm cable for the wired connection. The neckband can connect simultaneously with multiple devices and vibrates to alert you of incoming calls. This vibrated when there is an incoming call which is great. It does lack the active noise cancelation but the passive sound isolation is impressive. The sounds are well, clear, and soft, the bass is great the treble performs excellently. The price range it comes in is worth every single penny.
The CL2 Planar can be used as wired and wireless headphones. You get cable connectors for using them as passive earphones. The battery life as a neckband earphone is up to 12 hours. The battery life isn’t over the top but is manageable.
