Realme introduced the Realme Buds Air Neo true wireless earphones, priced at Rs. 2,999. This lower-cost sibling to the Realme Buds Air was launched relatively recently in late 2019, the Realme Buds Air Neo is an affordable true wireless headset.
The Realme Buds Air Neo has the same AirPods-like design. The outer-ear fit is comfortable and stayed in place for most normal activities, but passive noise isolation was practically non-existent, as would be expected from this design. There are touch-sensitive zones on the earphones for the controls. The earphones are IPX4 rated for water resistance and use Bluetooth 5 for connectivity with support for the SBC and AAC codecs.
The Realme Buds Air Neo gets slightly larger 13mm dynamic drivers, and what Realme calls an R1 true wireless chip for dual-channel transmission and better connectivity. There's also a low-latency mode for gaming, touch function customisation through the app, and support for Google Fast Pair.
The earphones run for around three hours per charge, with the charging case managing to power the earphones four more times for a total battery life of 17 hours per charge cycle.
