Realme Buds Air Review: Design, Features, and Price

A few days ago, the Asian manufacturer launched its first true wireless headphones to the market. Yes, a new rival for the AirPods that arrives on the market with an ace in the sleeve that can be vital to become a new bombshell of the Oppo subsidiary: a price-quality ratio very difficult to beat. Without more, we begin with this analysis of the Realme Buds Air.

At first glance, it is clear that the design of the Realme Buds Air is really similar to that of the AirPods. Available in three colors (white, black and yellow), we find a product with a well-known format. And that is not exactly bad. More than anything because the concept of Apple headphones has been the reason why they swept. And that Redmi has followed in his footsteps, allows us to enjoy this advantage at a much more restrained price.

To this, we must add its light weight, only 4.16 grams, making them really comfortable to use.

Another detail that we liked is the optical sensor that integrates these bluetooth headphones from Realme. Thanks to this tool, the Buds Air are able to detect when we put them on or take off to play or pause the music. The icing on the cake is put by your external microphone, with a noise cancellation system to allow calls without an external sound that will excessively undermine the experience. It is not the most powerful system on the market, but seeing its measured price, it is a detail to take into account.
