Realme brings premium features to affordable earbuds

There’s one for everyone

I’m curious to know if there is someone out there that is still on their first pair of headphones. Maybe you were crossing the road, and you dropped one truly wireless bud that got stuck like a piece of gum to the groove of a tire. Now, you’re smarter and you have neckband earphones. Just when you think that you’ve found the perfect pair, you snagged the wire while pulling it from your bag and now you're left with a DIY truly wireless pair that doesn't work. It makes sense to have a pair of budget earphones lying around that you can use a bit more carelessly and Realme has quite a few options.

Realme Buds Wireless 2 Neo

The Realme Buds Wireless 2 Neo is the most entry-level earphones at ₹1,499. These are lightweight, have 11.2mm drivers and a bass boost for a deeper and heavier sound. These have 17 hours of playback and if you like gaming, the 88ms low latency helps. These are neckband headphones and you can snag them at a discount because the early bird gets an ₹100 discount.

 

Realme Buds Q2 Neo

The Realme Buds Q2 Neo is truly wireless. These have a longer battery life that clocks in at 20 hours. They have a sleek aesthetic kaleidoscope design and touch controls to switch music and answer calls. Like the Realme Buds Wireless 2 Neo, this also has low latency and environmental noise cancellation but a slightly smaller 10mm driver. However, they have an IPX4 rating that lets you take them into any weather. These cost ₹1,599 and are at an 18% discount for the release.

 

Realme Buds Wireless 2

The most premium pair is the Realme Buds Wireless 2 and has a neckband form factor. To give you the most immersive bass experience, Realme worked with The Chainsmokers to jointly develop Bass Boost+ on this pair that also has a bigger 13.6mm driver. It offers up to 12 hours of music with just 10 minutes of charge thanks to the dart charge feature. They also come with the ANC. In just one click you can put it in transparent mode so you can hear your surroundings too. All these cool features are only for ₹2,299 but Realme also has a pre-sale offer on these.
