realme Kenya has brought the realme Buds Q to the country.
These are wireless earphones that should complement your audio experience in a world where manufacturers are popularizing Bluetooth headsets.
The realme Buds Q face a tough competition from other phone makers: OPPO has copies selling locally, and so is Xiaomi, Samsung, TECNO and itel.
The realme pair is reportedly made in collaboration with Jose Levy.
Here are some of its specs:
- 10mm dynamic bass boost driver
- 119ms super low latency gaming mode
- Battery: up to 20 hours
- IPX4 water and sweat resistance
- Touch controls
At KES 4000, they cost less than the W31s from OPPO, and almost three times as cheap as the Buds+ by Samsung.
However, there are cheaper solutions from some of the mentioned manufacturers, but they have their compromises, such as zero protection from water or sweat, no touch controls and sometimes, short battery life.
Speaking of touch controls, they really come in handy when you don’t want to whip your phone out to change a track. The only other pair I know that I know does this is made by Samsung, but costs a little bit too much.
Oh, the Buds Q include Bluetooth 5.0, which maintains stronger connections over relatively extended distances.
They are available in 3 classic colours: Quite Black, Quite White, and Quite Yellow.
Perhaps the only negative about the wireless earphones is that they charge via micro-USB instead of Type C.
