Cleer Audio’s ARC II Wireless Earbuds Support aptX Lossless

With support for aptX Lossless and aptX Adaptive, the new Cleer Audio ARC II Wireless Earbuds are far more attractive than the Apple AirPods.

Cleer Audio has announced its new Arc II Sport Smart Open-Ear True Wireless Earbuds with a flexible earhook hinge design. But that’s not the most important aspect of the new design. Not at all. These might be one of the first wireless earbuds to support aptX Lossless and that’s going to be a very big deal when more smart devices offer support for the codec.

The Cleer Arc II Sport open-ear earbuds fit passively, without blocking out the sounds around you. They feature a unique earhook and hinge design with an improved shape and added flexibility to improve its fit and comfort.


Situational awareness? We keep harping on this topic with each new pair of wireless headphone or earbuds; if you can’t configure them to allow external noise to alert you to cars, cyclists, or pedestrians — hard pass. And that applies to both adults and children. The desire to isolate yourself from the world and your music is fine — but not if you get crushed by a bus crossing the street.

With today’s fast-paced society, it is beneficial to hear your surroundings. This is particularly true when it comes to activities such as running, cycling, long walks, or an intense gym session. The team at Cleer realized the benefits of hearing your surroundings during these activities, as it not only keeps you connected to the world around you, but also is safer.

Cleer focuses its attention on active lifestyles with its new open-ear Arc II Sport wireless earbuds: opening us to the world and bringing high-quality audio to enjoy while on the move.

Improved bold and powerful sound with Bluetooth 5.3, aptX Adaptive, Snapdragon Sound and LE Audio compatibility, and native voice assistant control. Enjoy your music with dynamic and rich audio quality without sacrificing volume and bass thanks to the 16.2mm graphene neodymium drivers that beam audio towards your ear canal. Multipoint connectivity is becoming increasingly desired, and now with this technology, the Arc II Sport allows you to seamlessly switch the audio input from two simultaneously connected devices.

Red Cleer ARC II Sport Wireless Earbuds

Cleer has also made updates to the fit and functionality from the previous version of Arc. The new Sport has an even more secure fit, with its flexible earhook design tailored for listening on the move. The addition of Cleer’s head motion control technology brings in a new way of taking calls, with an easy way of answering without getting in the way of your activities. The touch sensitive controls on the Sport allow for smooth operation and can be customized using the Cleer+ app.

The Cleer Arc II Sport is leading the way in true wireless technology in open style, with features previously unavailable. Users can enjoy 8 hours of playtime from a single charge, and then use the supplied charging case for an additional 27 hours (35 hours total). 

Another change to the case is the addition of UV-C light that sanitizes the earbuds while not in use. Here, Cleer not only listened to user feedback, but also always strives to innovate to deliver the best products and user experience possible.

The Arc II Sport also benefits from its IPX5 waterproof rating, which is a major step up from the more common IPX4 and provides protection against low pressure water contact and a significantly lower risk of damage caused by water exposure.

Another useful feature is its Anti-loss Detection. If you drop an earbud, it will beep to make it easier to locate.

The Cleer+ app adds customizable performance by adjusting the EQ and customizing music playback, as well as easily downloading future firmware updates. New to the app is a battery monitor (Left/Right/Case) and a handy step counter. 

Patrick Huang, President, and CEO of Cleer, says: “The new Arc II Sport is an exceptional addition to the Cleer line up. Its improved earhook design, immersive sound performance, and hands-free controls are spot on for today’s active consumer.”
