Realme India extended the company’s portfolio of AIoT devices this week. It includes the new budget Realme Buds Air Neo TWS earbuds. On the same day, Realme launched another earbud, Realme Buds Q exclusively in China. Let’s take a look at the specs, features, expected price in Nepal, and availability of Realme Buds Q.
Realme Buds Q Overview
Design and Build
Unlike Realme Buds Air and Air Neo, Buds Q doesn’t come with a stem-body design. The new design is a result of the collaboration between Realme and Frech Designer Jose Levy. It isn’t the first time Realme has worked with a professional designer; the Master Design on Realme Narzo 10 was the idea of Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa.
From a distance, you might confuse the design with Samsung Galaxy Buds. But the head on the Buds Q is more circular than rectangular. Realme is calling it the “Pebble design.” The round shape is said to fit the ear contour better, making it more comfortable to wear. Each earbud weighs around 3.6 grams and the weight of the charging case is around is 31.7 grams.
Audio Drivers and Connectivity
Realme Buds Q features a 10mm dynamic driver with bass enhancement technology. It uses the same custom R1 chip as in the Realme Buds Air and Air Neo. The chip allows dual-channel real-time data transmission. The data is transmitted using Bluetooth v5.0 technology.
There is a low-latency gaming mode for gamers that can reduce the latency up to 119ms. You can turn on the mode by pressing and holding both earbuds for two seconds. The mode syncs audio and video better and can be used while watching movies. It supports AAC HD codec, though it may mean you need to enable the decoding manually from the Bluetooth setting.
A double-tap on one of the earbuds will cause the music to play or pause. Similarly, you can also use it to answer any incoming calls. To end a call, simply press and hold on one side. Triple tap will let you skip the current song and move to the next one.
Each bud has a 40mAh battery, which can last about 4.5 hours of continuous music. Similarly, Realme promises 3 hours of call time, 5 hours of gaming, and 6 hours of movie time. The charging case is equipped with a 400mAh battery that can extend battery life up to about 20 hours. The case supports 30W wired charging via micro-USB port.
