Its seems like every smartphone maker are also making TWS (true wireless stereo) earphones. These Bluetooth earphones are becoming a big thing these days since the audio jack is slowly being eliminated on new smartphones.
Now Realme is the latest smartphone to offer this new tech with the Realme Buds Air. How does it fare on everyday use? How does it compare with other TWS earphones? Let’s find out.
The design of the Realme Buds Air are quite similar to most TWS earbuds we’ve seen. The charging case we have here is white which we prefer over black. Opening the case prompts the earbuds into pairing mode. Thanks to Google Fast Pair Technology, pairing it to any Android phone or even to our iPhone is a breeze. We have a USB Type C port under the charging case whuch means you can use any USB-C charger to charge the device.
Moving on to the pair of earphones, they are pretty much the same design of any TWS earbuds available today. It fits perfectly in our ears and doesn’t wobble or fall off. Prolonged use does cause ear fatigue.
The earbuds has several touch controls. Double tap to answer calls or pause/play music which works fine on Spotify. Triple tap to skip a song. Long press to end a call or launch a voice assistant. It works surprisingly fine with Siri too. Last is long press on both earbuds to start gaming mode.
General audio quality is very good. Good bass and good audio detail. What we like most is when we remove the earbuds the video or music we playing automatically stops. As for the noise cancellation, you can still hear background noise but audio remains loud and clear in noisy places. Calls are clear and so as our audio at the end of the line.
On paper the Realme Buds Air promises 17 hours of playback. But that’s actually what can the charging case can juice up yoir earbuds. Actual use on a single.charge is up to 2 and a half hours. You can easily juice up your earbuds in the charging case for 30 minutes and use it again.
The Realme Buds Air is a good alternative to other high priced TWS earbuds in the market today. It does offer good audio quality and useful touch controls. The battery may be a bit underwhelming but you really can’t just ignore the price – Php 3,990.
