Realme Buds Air specifications

The Realme Buds Air sports an in-ear design with a long stem that hangs from the ear when a user wears them. The earbuds also feature touch control options such as double-tap to pause/ play, triple tap for next song, long touch for Assistant and Siri, and rejecting calls. The pair also comes with wear detection that pauses the music when they’re removed and resumes when you put them back on ears. The Realme Buds Air’s charging case is compact enough to slip into your watch pocket. The case supports wired (Type-C) as well as wireless charging, and just like AirPods, sports LED light and pairing button.

As for the battery, the Realme Buds are rated to last up to 21 hours, with the case holding the juice for the next 17 hours on a single charge. The case takes one-and-half hours over Type-C to recharge. The buds are IPX2 sweatproof and ship with Bluetooth v 5.2 for wireless connectivity. The audio accessory also touts Custom R1 chip, 12mm Mater Tuned drivers, and dual-mic noise cancellation to filter ambient noise during voice calls. The pair even pack Gaming mode – can be activated by pressing both the earbuds – to reduces latency to the lowest industry standard at around 120ms.
