Realme Buds Air Pro and Buds Wireless Pro debut today in India. These are major upgrades over the latest generation Buds Air and Buds Wireless audio devices. Realme is packing Active Noise Cancellation on both new products with the distinction of the word “Pro”. There are new designs for both models, as well as new features on Realme’s wireless products in the audio segment. But before we delve into them, let’s clarify the price and sales details.
Realme Buds Air Pro price, Buds Wireless Pro price
Realme is priced with the Buds Air Pro at Rs 4,999 and the Buds Wireless Pro at Rs 3,999. The prices are attractive as they don’t stray too far from the cost of the predecessors. Realme Buds Air launched for Rs 3,999 while Buds Wireless launched at Rs 1,799. Buds Air Pro is available in Rock Black and Soul White colors while Buds Wireless Pro has Disco Green and Party Yellow color options.
But what if I told you that you don’t even have to pay these prices but less. Realme is offering a special discount on its newly launched product range for Diwali. So, Realme Buds Air Pro will cost you Rs 4,499 and Buds Wireless Pro will be available for Rs 2,999 during Flipkart Big Billion Days and Amazon Great Indian Festival sales. These prices will be reversed after a limited time, but when that’s something the company hasn’t clarified.
The first sales for both products will begin at noon on October 16. Buds Air Pro will be available on Flipkart and Realme online store, while Buds Wireless Pro will be on sale on Amazon. Offline availability will also be available soon, the company said.
Features of Realme Buds Air Pro, Buds Wireless Pro
Powering both new audio products is active noise cancellation, which is much better than what conventional budget wireless earbuds offer. It uses an algorithm based on ambient noise cancellation to eliminate surrounding noise, delivering clear audio to your ears. Buds Air Pro features the company’s custom S1 noise canceling chip, which is said to provide the strongest noise canceling effect while consuming little power.
The design of the Buds Air Pro resembles that of the Oppo W51 TWS earphones, although there are noticeable differences between them. The TWS earbuds come with a 10mm bass boost driver for rich audio quality, but I hold my opinion on that until I review the device.
There’s dual-mic noise canceling for a call, along with Google’s instant auto-connect and fast pairing via Bluetooth v5.0. There is a charging case with a 486mAh battery which is rated to offer a total battery life of 25 hours. But when you turn on the ANC, the battery life is reduced to 20 hours. But that shouldn’t be a problem as the Buds Air Pro can last around 3 hours on a 10 minute charge.
For people who are looking to buy this pair of gaming headsets, Realme offers the game mode with super low latency of 94ms which is activated when you long press on a headset. Each headset weighs 5 grams but the total case weighs around 48.8 grams.
Buds Wireless Pro offers the same Active Noise Canceling (ANC) technology at a lower price. It’s not as wireless as the Buds Air Pro because the two earbuds are connected by a neckband. These earphones support the LDAC codec for even richer sound quality. LDAC is a superior codec to SBC and is found on a range of smartphones, including Realme.
Inside these earphones is a 13.6mm bass boost driver along with the S1 chip and magnetic connectors. These connectors automatically attach when dangling around your neck to pause music and save battery. When they are separated, music playback resumes. This also has a Super Latency mode with 119ms of latency for gaming use.
Realme has updated its audio products to now feature advanced active noise cancellation that stops noise to ruin your music experience.
