Realme has extended its Buds Air lineup of wireless earbuds with the latest Buds Air Pro. The new TWS was announced alongside other AIoT devices during Realme “Leap To Next Gen” online event. Let’s take a look at the specs, features, expected price, and availability of Realme Buds Air Pro in Nepal.
Realme Buds Air Pro Overview
The design of the Realme Buds Air Pro has been heavily inspired by Apple’s Air Pods Pro. For the first time in the lineup, Realme has opted for soft ear tips. Realme says that the silicone ear tips are skin-friendly and its ergonomic cavity makes it comfortable to wear for a prolonged period. The earbuds are lightweight and weigh 5g each. Realme Buds Air Pro is available in two color options – Rock Black and Soul White.
The charging case of the Realme Buds Air Pro sports a cobble-inspired design. There is an LED indicator, and the Realme logo just below the lid.
While the original Realme Buds Air featured a custom R1 chipset, it has been replaced with the S1 chipset in the Buds Air Pro. The biggest improvement is the intelligent noise cancellation technology. In addition to that, the new chipset is also power-efficient and stable in terms of connection. S1 supports data transmission via Bluetooth 5.0 connection. The 10mm audio driver in the Buds Air Pro is actually smaller than the 12mm driver in the Realme Buds Air. But, it comes with Dynamic Bass Boost composite bass enhancement algorithm.
Buds Air Pro is also the first TWS from Realme to feature Active Noise cancellation (ANC). The hybrid ANC consists of FeedForward and FeedBack microphones that detect noise from both inside and outside of the ear. The earbuds then emit anti-noise waves to cancel them out. Realme says the Buds Air Pro can cancel out the noise of up to 35dB. There is a Transparency mode that allows the ambient sound to go through. For gamers out there, it features a different “Game Mode” that when activated can restrict the audio latency to up to 94ms. It is a massive improvement from 119.3ms in the gaming mode of the original Buds Air or Buds Air Neo, Buds Q.
Similarly, the Buds Air Pro supports Smart Wear Detection. It stops the music automatically when the earbuds are taken out of the ear and resumes playback when put back in. Other notable features include touch-enabled controls, dual-mic ENC for calls, auto-connection, and Google Fast Pair.
Rest of the specs
At 50% volume, the earbuds can last up to 5 hours on a single charge with the Noise cancellation on. Turning it off will give an extra hour of playback time. With the charging case, the numbers can be extended up to 20 hours and 25 hours, respectively. The earphone can be charged from 0 to 100% in an hour’s time. The whole setup (including the earbuds and charging case) takes two hours to fully charge. Realme Buds Air Pro supports fast charging that provides up to 3 hours of playback (charging case + earbuds) with 10 minutes of charging. However, it doesn’t support wireless charging.
Another neat addition to the Buds Air Pro is the IPX4 certification. Now, you can use the Realme Buds Air Pro during minor workouts without having to worry about anything.
