Realme Buds Air 5 and 5 Pro have launched alongside the Realme 11 series in India today. They offer strong Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), LDAC support, and spatial audio. Let’s dive right into the Realme Buds Air 5 and 5 Pro and their specs, features, availability, and expected price in Nepal.

Realme Buds Air 5 and 5 Pro Overview: 


Realme Buds Air 5 Pro - Design

Like the Realme Buds Air 3, these are also in-ear earbuds with a cylindrical stem and silicon ear tips. Both Buds Air 5 and Air 5 Pro are rated IPX5 water-resistant against water splashes. The vanilla Buds Air 5 is available in Deep Sea Blue and Artic White color options while the Air 5 Pro comes in Sunrise Beige and Astral Black. But do note that its case isn’t IP-certified in any way.

Audio and ANC

Getting to audio, Buds Air 5 comes with a 12.4mm titanized driver while its pro brother boasts a woofer + tweeter setup (11mm woofer alongside a secondary 6mm planar driver) to support a wider range of frequencies. While both earbuds support 3D spatial audio, LDAC codec is reserved for the more expensive pair. So, you’ll have to miss out on that Hi-Res audio on the standard Buds Air 5. 

For even better audio quality, you can perform a hearing test inside the “Realme Link” app. According to the company, this can compensate for hearing loss and audio leakage to deliver richer sound overall. These earbuds pair with your devices via Bluetooth 5.3 and even support dual-device connection. There’s also a dedicated gaming mode, which can bring down latency to just 45ms on the Air 5 and 40ms on the Air 5 Pro leading to a better gaming experience.

Realme Buds Air 5 Pro - ANC

Realme Buds Air 5 and 5 Pro bring a significant upgrade in terms of ANC as well. They can drown out up to 50dB of noise (versus 42dB on Buds Air 3). These earbuds also support 4000Hz ultra-wideband noise reduction, along with Realme’s “Deep Sea Noise Reduction 2.0” technology for clearer calls. This makes use of the microphones in each bud to capture ambient sounds.


In terms of battery, Realme Buds Air 5 is rated for 7 hours with ANC off while the 5 Pro will last you about 11 hours of music playback (ANC off). With the charging chase, the battery life extends to 38 hours on the Air 5 and 40 hours on the Air 5 Pro.
