Last week we saw Realme launching its new earbuds, the Buds Q in India priced at ₹1,999. These new earbuds are now going on sale. Interested buyers can get their hands on the wearable device today starting 12PM IST from Realme.com and Amazon India website. The entry-level wireless TWS comes in three colours - Quite Black, Quite White and Quite Yellow.
The Realme Buds Q come with a 10mm large bass boost driver and also have a gaming mode that is said to offer 119ms low latency. The Gaming mode is powered by the company's own R1Q True Wireless Chip. You also get an AAC high-quality sound system for batter clarity. The Buds Q support touch controls for actions like play/pause, answering a call, playing the next song etc.
Weighing at 3.6g, the Realme Buds Q, as per the company, offers 4.5 hours of playback time, and 20 hours in total with the charging case. This is because of the 40mah battery capacity in Buds Q and 400mAh additional battery in the charging case. With an IPX4 rated body, the earbuds are waterproof and dustproof.
The device connects to your smartphone seamlessly using the Realme Link app. So, as soon as you open the charging case, the R1Q chipset recognises the movement and activates the earbuds before hand, which results in quick pairing.
The arch rival to Realme Buds Q is Xiaomi’s Redmi Earbuds S. The device comes with a range of 10 metres in an obstacle-free environment and has a battery capacity of 43mAh per earbud. The case, however, has an additional 300mAh battery. Xiaomi says that its Redmi Earbuds S is primarily tuned for bass, considering the genre most people listen in India. Adding to this is the special Game Mode that reduces the latency by 50% to 120ms.
