Starting with the design, the headset comes in an oval shaped charging case that fits in your pocket. It has a plastic body with a matte finish which is reflective, but doesn’t attract fingerprints. The case weighs 59 grams.
On the front there are four LED light that show the charge left in the case. You can also see the USB Type-C port on the front. There is a small glossy part in between the cover and the bottom part of the case that is prone to fingerprints and smudges.
Opening the case reveals the slots that house the earbuds.
The headset has a plastic build with a matte finish, so it doesn’t attract fingerprints. The earbuds weigh about 4 to 5 grams, which is light. These feature an in-ear design and also come with medium-sized ear tips pre-installed. You can change to bundled Large or Small sized ear tips if you wish.
The touch control part also has a matte finish, but it is a hit or miss. There is a long stem which has WeCool branding. The touch-sensitive area lets you control play/pause, go to next or previous song, control volume, open Google Assistant and attend or disconnect calls.

The WeCool Moonwalk-M2 supports Bluetooth 5.1 with AAC codec. The connection range is around 10 meters, which is common in most headsets, but the connection quality is good. The pairing process is very easy, simply keep the Buds from the case, open the Bluetooth settings on the phone and connect to the Moonwalk-M2. You can take the earbuds out of the case and start using.
It comes with a dedicated gaming mode which is useful when gaming since it reduces the latency, and we could feel the difference. The earbuds offer a decent amount of noise isolation. The audio quality is decent, but could have been better. It has ENC that can block background noise during calls to a certain extent.
The earphones with a 50mAh battery promise 8 hours of standalone playback. With the 400mAh charging case, it promises up to 32 hours of total battery life. We couldn’t test the battery life during the brief usage. Charging the case takes about 2 hours over USB Type-C since it doesn’t have fast charging, and the buds take over one hour to charge when placed in the case.
The Moonwalk M2 is priced at INR 1599 and is available exclusively via Amazon.in.
