When it comes to audio quality, the Cleer ALLY PLUS II does NOT deliver the best performance I have heard from a wireless earbud but it was probably one of the most well balanced experiences. The 10mm dynamic driver produces rich, balanced sound, with a tight bass response and clear, detailed highs. The earbuds’ ability to reproduce a wide frequency range allows for an immersive and engaging listening experience. Whether you’re enjoying your favorite tunes or diving into a podcast, the audio quality of the Cleer ALLY PLUS II is impressive.
As for its Active noise cancellation (ANC) it does a decent job and its snug fit and seal of the earbuds helped reduce external noise even further compared to others, but overall it may not be to effective in extremely noisy environments but would work well for flights, going to the gym or most coffee shops.
EASE OF USE
Its very intuitive touch controls and seamless pairing process, the Cleer ALLY PLUS II earbuds offer a user-friendly experience. The touch-sensitive controls on each earbud allow for effortless playback control, volume adjustment, and call management. Pairing the earbuds with your device is quick and hassle-free, thanks to their Bluetooth 5.2 technology. Additionally, the inclusion of a 4 mic design built-in microphone is great for conference calls or just making calls while on the go.
Comfort is an important check mark on my list when it comes to earbuds, as you usually end up wearing them for hours at a time and the Cleer ALLY PLUS II excels in this aspect. The earbuds are thoughtfully designed with a lightweight and ergonomic shape, making them incredibly comfortable to wear for extended periods. The included multiple sizes of silicone eartips ensure a personalized fit, allowing for a secure and snug seal. Whether you’re working out, commuting, or relaxing, the Cleer ALLY PLUS II remains comfortable, ensuring a a great listening experience.
One of the standout features of the Cleer ALLY PLUS II is its remarkable battery life.

This extended battery performance ensures that the Cleer ALLY PLUS II can accompany you throughout the day without the need for frequent recharging. I attempted to utilize them as much as possible throughout an entire day, using them for making calls, listening to music, and streaming videos, without removing them. Remarkably, I managed to make it through the entire day without needing to recharge them.
Now, charging was a breeze as the carry case itself has a built in battery adding an additional 22hrs of playback time and is easily rechargeble via USB-C or via Qi wireless charging.
The Cleer Ally Plus II comes with the ability to personalized EQ settings using the Cleer+ companion app. Now, with the Ally Plus II, you can leverage Mimi Sound Optimization through the Cleer+ app. Upon connecting your Ally Plus II earbuds to the app, you can take an integrated sound test, which involves playing a sequence of frequency tones against a backdrop of ambient noise. It does a fairly good job in creating a sound profile for you and is very easy to setup.
