Realme has released the Realme Buds Wireless with the new Realme XT along with some other accessories as well. The Realme Buds Wireless has been released with some great features at a price of Rs. 1,799. Realme also collaborated with one of the popular DJ, Alan Walker to promote their new Buds Wireless.
For the features roundup, the Realme Buds Wireless comes with Bluetooth 5.0 and Realme claims 12 hours of music playback with a full charge. Let’s see it is worth the price or you have to go for other brands like Xiaomi’s Neckband Bluetooth earphones.
The design of the Realme Buds Wireless is a bit funky with all that black and yellow theme going on. The neckband is rather sleek and flexible and made of some kind of rubbery material. It has a matte feel on the surface of the neckband which feels pretty soft on the skin. The controls are provided in a small casing at the end of the neckband and to balance that, the battery is placed at the other end.
The wires connecting the beck band to the buds have a soft feel to it. There are music controls buttons provided which can play/pause, skip track and control volume. A little microphone is also provided for the phone calls and giving commands to the assistant. There is no need to turn on the earphones because it turns on automatically when you pull the buds apart from each other.
The outer casing of the earbuds are made of plastic material and are very lightweight. The tips are angled so you get a perfect fit in your ears. Also, there are rubber wings provided on the buds as well which give a perfect fit inside your ears but the box doesn’t include extra pairs. In my opinion, the buds could be better if the casing was made of metal instead of plastic, otherwise, there is no problem in comfort.
Pairing and Controls
The Realme Buds Wireless comes with Magnetic Pairing tech, the buds have magnets on them. When you pull them apart, the buds turn on and goes into the pairing mode and connects automatically if already paired with the device.
To pair them with another device, just hold the play/pause button for 5 seconds and the light will be flashing indicating that the earphones are in pair mode.
When you are not listing to songs, you can just put the buds together which turns them off hence the music on your phone pause automatically. When you pull them apart, they turn on and connects to the already paired device which resumes the music playback. Other than this, there is a play pause button which can picks calls as well. There are volume buttons as well which skip tracks as well.
Before talking about the actual sound quality and performance of the earphones, let’s get to the specs first. The earphones come with big 11.2mm sound drivers which is first at the price range. Other than this, the buds have been said to be proving the best bass quality as told by Alan Walker himself at the launch event.
The first talk about sound, I had my hopes up when Alan Walker collaborated with Realme to promote these headphones. The volume is sure higher than most (affordable) earphones I have reviewed and tried because of the big drivers of course. The highs are great but mids and lows seem to be fading. The music is crisp though but buy these only if you want high bass. If you are a metal or rock fan, these earphones are not made for you.
The battery performance is a critical aspect in Bluetooth earphones. Realme claims that Realme Buds Wireless can give you 12 hours of music playback. Of course, no one can hear music playback that long straight but even if you use them for a whole day time to time, you don’t have to charge them.
Realme sure coming out to be a great brand by providing some good quality products at affordable prices. The Realme Buds Wireless is no exception, you get what you expect from these earphones. If high bass and long battery life are all you want from earphones then I can recommend these headphones with no second thought.
