Going head to head against its direct competitor Redmi, Realme has also released Buds Air Pro and the Buds Wireless Pro. These are a bit more high-end compared to Redmi’s recent releases and hence have higher price tags as well.
Realme Buds Air Pro
Buds Air Pro are Realme’s first wireless earbuds that bring Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). This is achieved by a pair of Feedback and Feedforward microphones that collect ambient noise around the outside and inside of your ears and generate canceling waves accordingly. Thanks to this, the Realme buds can achieve noise cancellation of up to 35db.
However, since completely blocking out surrounding noises can be dangerous in public, there is also a Transparency mode that collects ambient noise to keep you aware. There is also Environmental Noise Cancellation (ENC) to minimize background noise during calls.
Each earbud has a 10mm bass boosting audio driver as well as touch and voice controls. Even the silicon tips have passive noise cancellation of their own. Other than that, there is also IPX4 water resistance, instant Bluetooth connection, and super low latency mode for gaming.
Battery life is up to 25 hours with the case, but you get 5 hours less with ANC turned on. You can get three hours of playback with only 10 minutes of charge once you’re out of juice.
The Realme Buds Air Pro will go for sale on October 16 for $68.
Realme Buds Wireless Pro
The neckband based Buds Wireless Pro do not have ear hooks like the previous generation but have bigger bass boost audio drivers and a low latency mode for gaming. These buds can connect to two devices at the same time and seamlessly switch between them through a double click on the multi-function button.
These also have IPX4 water resistance and Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) as well as Environmental Noise Cancellation (ENC). Battery life is 22 hours, but only 16 hours with ANC enabled. A full charge takes 1.5 hours but 5 minutes can get you 1.7 hours of music playback.
The Realme Wireless Buds Pro will also go for sale on October 16, but for $55.
