Designed by French designer José Lévy, the cooperated designer of Hermès and the art director of the realme Design Studio. The realme Buds Q case is shaded like cobblestones found along the shores of Normandy beach where Lévy spent most of his youth. The case looks simple, yet elegant and the soft-touch plastic really feels nice to touch when you pick it up. There’s also an LED light at the front of the case which blinks red when you plug the charger and turns green when the earbuds are fully charged.
The earbuds themselves also looked like small pebbles. The earpieces are tiny though, fitting in most ears comfortably. These earbuds are quiet light at 3.6 grams (per earbud) and sit very comfortably in our ears. While the charging case weighs only 28.2 grams. When you wear them, the earbuds doesn’t stick out of the ears awkwardly like some TWS earbuds in the market.
Pairing the Buds Q is really easy, you just need to take the earbuds out from the charging box for auto-pairing thanks to its R1Q chip that supports bluetooth 5.0 technology. Aside from that you can also make use of the new realme Link App, which lets you add Buds Q to realme’s AloT ecosystem.
Initially, the realme Buds Q is only available in Quite Black colorway, but watch out for its two other colorways: the Quite White and Quite Yellow.
Straight out of the box, you’ll find the realme Buds Q charging case with the earbuds inside, a (short) microUSB charging cable, user guide, and two more eartips in different sizes (comes in small, medium, and large).
Design And Build Quality
The realme Buds Q cobblestone-inspired charging case is made from a matte polycarbonate material. The case is quite compact and would easily slide into your pocket. As far as fit goes, personally its by far one of the best-fitting earphones I’ve tried in this price range. The fact that these earbuds weigh barely 3.6 grams made me forget that I was wearing them at all.
In terms of battery life, each buds comes with 27mAh battery that usually gets around 4 hours of usage while the case comes with a 400mAh battery for an extra 17 hours of playtime. Charging the device takes around 2 hours from 0 to 100 percent.
One thing that kinda disappointed me is that it still uses the regular microUSB. Although this is still acceptable given its price point.
