Realme Buds Air
The Realme Buds Air comes in three color options, White, Gray, and Nord Blue. They cost around 4,500 shillings in Kenya. This price is way affordable than that of the AirPods which they resemble. The Realme Buds Air is like the AirPods Pro with a stem design which makes them handy for call quality. You can buy Realme Buds Air in Kenya today at Phone Place Kenya.

The resemblance with Apple’s
So let’s start by talking about the most unique thing in the Realme Buds Air. The design! And we can start by talking about the AirPods’ resemblance. Make no mistake Realme Buds Air look strikingly similar. Scratch that. Exactly the same as the Apple Airpods. It’s got a similar-looking stem design and the overall look, the same charging case that says, “designed by Realme”. Even the sensors are aligned exactly the same as in the airports.
Yeah, there are some differences like the fact that the grooming, if that’s even grooming is a little different looking. The build quality is obviously nowhere close to as good as the Airpods. But concentrating on the huge price difference it would be unfair to complain. Overall, these look like Airpod twins, no doubts about that. I mean, I’m pretty sure that anyone who sees these new white Realme Buds Air will think they are the Airpods. There are the black and yellow versions if you ever wanted yellow or black buds.
Realme Buds Air features
Anyway, resemblance aside, what features do Realme Buds Air bring? Quite a lot of them. First of all, they come with the R1 chipset with Bluetooth 5.0, similar to the W1 chip in AirPods (cannot get over it). This R1 chip is said to bring low latency and the most stable connection. In fact, there’s even a gaming mode that said to reduce latency by more than 50%. We think the latency was pretty low, however, nothing extraordinary here.
Moving onto the comfort and fit. These aren’t the most well-fitting earbuds since they are made out of plastic. See if they fit comfortably on your ears you will be pretty happy with these. So what I suggest you do is just try out Realme Buds Air before you go ahead and buy them. Here’s what you need to do. Just get Apple Airpods and if they fit well go ahead and buy them.
As for the stable connection, pairing the Realme Buds Air is this wise. You first have to open the case, press this button for a few seconds, wait for the air buds to play with each other, and then open Bluetooth settings on your phone to finally pair them. So it’s a little bit of work, but I think for the price, we can let that slide. You may also like Galaxy Buds Live
Anyway, ones you have paired the earphones, the connection remains pretty stable. And they even connect quickly, when you just open up the case. Going back to the features that also touch controls which do take some time getting used. You can double-tap to play or pause, answer calls, long press launch the assistant, and long-press both sides to activate the gaming mode, which I talked about. By the way, there is no, Hey Google support so you’ll have to use these touch controls.
Apart from the touch controls, Realme Buds Air has ear detection. So the music pauses when you take the earphones out of your ear and automatically plays when you put them back in. Yeah, it’s nice. They dual my ex and ANC for calls. The voice from these earphones was always a little muffled. You might annoy the other person on the call. See official website
Now coming to the sound quality of the Realme Buds Air. This is one area where the Realme Buds Air is actually really good there’s ANC support, which is great. And there’s a dynamic bass boost driver and the BASS on these things is pretty good. Realme Buds Air gets pretty loud and there’s no distortion at max volumes. The highs are great. And the base, like I said is pretty good. In fact, if you ask me, I think the sound quality of these buds comes very close to what to get with the Airpods with the bass, definitely being better. And that is great.
Battery life and charging
Lastly, there’s the battery. The Realme Buds Air is set to last 3 hours or a single charge, and they can go up to 17 hours with the included case. Now, in my usage, these buds, easily last three hours and sometimes they even lasted longer, which is great. Plus the case here is a wireless charging case, which I think is pretty amazing at this price.
You can charge it with the new 10watt wireless charger from Realme or any other Qi wireless charger. Now, if you don’t use wireless chargers, you can charge this case or USB-C. So yeah, there’s that, but that’s pretty much everything about the new Realme Buds Air.
