Realme Earbuds with Mic for Android Smartphones (Black)-Best Earphones under Rs 500




Chinese smartphone and accessories maker Realme hasn’t even completed a year in the market, but it’s already made a huge impact on the segments in which it has products. Devices such as the Realme C1 and Realme 2 Pro offer specifications and hardware that aren’t typically seen at their price points, and all of this has gotten Realme noticed in a big way. Now that the company has its smartphone operations somewhat in place, it has turned its attention to another lucrative space in India — audio and introduced the new Realme Earbuds.

Enter the Realme Earbuds, the company’s first standalone audio product. Priced at Rs 439, the Realme Earbuds are affordable with the promise of features and specifications that not many other brands offer at this price. Can this smartphone maker shake up the affordable earphones market with its latest product, or does this all sound too good to be true? We find out in our review.

Realme Buds design and  Detailed Specifications

As far as basic design goes, the Realme Earbuds are fairly standard for low-cost in-ear headphones. Featuring an in-canal fit, regular silicone eartips, and a 1m-long cable, all the basics are in place. However, when you consider the Rs. 439 price, you get a few additional features that make this an excellent value-for-money offering, including a three-button in-line remote, microphone, and more. The ‘more’ includes a Kevlar fibre wrap around the cable below the Y-splitter for durability, and a magnetic clamping mechanism between the two earpieces for easy carrying. The Kevlar definitely makes the cable feels more durable and resistant to strain than what we’re used to seeing at this price level, while the magnets reduce the chances of the wires getting tangled.

Unlike the OnePlus Bullets Wireless, the magnetic clamping mechanism does not control anything; there is no power switch here given that this is a standard pair of wired earphones. The ear casings themselves are made of plastic, but feel solid and well-built.

The three-button remote works as expected to control volume, playback, and call controls on compatible devices. The Realme Earbuds use the standard 3.5mm plug to connect to a source device, which makes it compatible with a large number of smartphones, audio players, and computers. The Realme Buds are powered by 11mm dynamic drivers, and you get two extra pairs of eartips in different sizes in the box in case the ones on by default don’t fit you optimally.

Realme Earbuds performance

Sound quality is, unfortunately, not fantastic. The Realme Earbuds headset sounds too warm, with the low end of the frequency range tending to overpower the mid-range and highs. Because of this, we heard a bit of roughness in the sound that persisted with various audio tracks that we played, regardless of genre. On a positive note, the Realme Earbuds can get very loud thanks to the 11mm drivers, and the bass tends to be more pronounced as a result, if that’s what you prefer.

Moving on to voice calls, we got acceptable performance from the microphone and earphones, and you’ll be able to use the Realme Buds effectively enough for hands-free phone functionality. We could hear voices clearly enough, and people on the other end of our calls didn’t report any issues either. The remote and buttons are well built, although they are a bit firm and difficult to press at times. The headphones are comfortable to use for long listening sessions as well, thanks to the weight and design.
