realme’s Buds Air Neo now available for KES. 4,999

A few days in since the official launch by realme into the Kenyan market where the company introduced three new devices, they’re now pushing a new product line with true-wireless-earbuds. The realme Buds Air Neo will be the company’s next new device, and should be available through Kilimall. They will be retailing at KES. 4,999 with official sale date starting today.

realme says the Buds Air Neo – such a long name – will ‘revolutionize‘ the “listening culture” in Kenya by taking the receiving of calls as well as the listening of music to the next level with the user being in control of every bit of experience without the inconvenience of wire connections.

The Buds Air Neo comes with Auto Connection, a 13mm Dynamic Bass Boost Driver over Bluetooth 5.0. The company claims up to 17 hours of listening time – which is crazy, and hopefully, we get review units to test this claim. We are guessing 17hrs is inclusive of the carry-case which charges the buds themselves wirelessly.

The buds have what realme calls the R1 True Wireless Chip that it says uses a new generation of dual-channel transmission technology, creating a fast and stable connection between the user’s phone and the realme Buds Air Neo. It is unclear whether this chip works with all Android phones well, or if it is a preserve for realme handsets.

The company touts the earbuds as being good for bass lovers as each bud uses high-quality polyurethane and titanium for an incredible sound experience. There’s no way to corroborate this claim. However, the company explains that the flexibility of polyurethane combined with the rigidity of titanium allows the Buds Air Neo to provide both deep, powerful bass and clear treble ranges. A special opening allows for clear vocals in mid-range frequencies. All this sounds really good for the price point, and we are hoping to test them out even though they quite resemble Apple’s Airpods.
