If you want to really understand what the Realme Buds Q are like, take a moment to grab a piece of A4 paper and hold it in your hand. How much weight do you feel? A piece of A4 paper weighs about 4.3 grams. Now consider this: the Realme Buds Q weigh only 3.6 grams. That’s less than a sheet of paper. Imagine that in your ear. Now imagine that small size with all the features you would expect of a pair of earbuds, as well as the best sound you can imagine, and you’re starting to get an idea of what the Realme Buds Q are like.
It would make sense to believe that the small size of the Realme Buds Q means that something had to be sacrificed to reduce its size. The most obvious choice would be the battery. But the Realme Buds Q features a 40mAh built-in battery. Combined with the charging case, the earbuds can offer up to 20 hours of battery life. You can listen to single continuous music for 4.5 hours, play a game for 5 hours, talk on a phone call for 3 hours, or watch a video for 6 hours with the battery of the Realme Buds Q. So if it’s not the battery that was sacrificed to make room, it must be the driver, but that’s also a mistaken notion. The Realme Buds Q are built around a 10mm large dynamic bass boost driver that features a premium PEEK&PU special polymer composite diaphragm. This driver offers clearer vocals as well as better mid and high range frequencies. And the bass? Solid and powerful. Using Bluetooth for connectivity, the Realme Buds Q’s sound quality makes them perfect for gaming, especially when you take into consideration the R1Q chip. This chip supports dual-channel, real-time transmission, so when operating in Gaming Mode, the Realme Buds Q have a latency of just 119ms.
Controlling the buds is easy with simple gestures and taps. Additionally, the Realme Buds Q have a IPX4 water resistance that lets you use these earbuds when you know you’re going to get your sweat on. And the other thing that is small about these buds? The Realme Buds Q are priced at just $79.
