When the specifications of the Realme Buds Air 5 Pro were revealed online, we were very excited about its arrival. The hype reached its peak when the price was confirmed below Rs 5,000 and why not? The specifications and features of the new Realme headphones are similar to the Oppo Enco X2 which is half the price (which we consider the best under $10,000). But often when studying audio products, we believe that technical features are one thing and sound quality is another.

In this review, we'll take a closer look at the Realme Buds Air 5 Pro and find out if these headphones can really compete with the X2. Meanwhile, we'll see what they are: a pair of True Wireless (TWS) earbuds under Rs 5,000 and priced in line with existing competitors. So let's get down to business.

Realme Buds Air 5 Pro: Design and Comfort (8/10)
The Buds Air 5 Pro uses the general design language of the Realme Buds Air and is very similar to its predecessors the Buds Air 3 and Bud Air 2 with the addition of Apple's grill. No complaints here as the design is still very pretty, with angled buds and short cylindrical stems with a smooth finish. We now have a new color option called Sunrise Beige that looks great. Besides the yummy name, the silicone pads are also coated in a light beige color with a hint of orange on the back (yes, it's morning).

The stem has a matte surface, the bud and stuffing box are shiny. Despite the bright color, fingerprints and smudges are barely visible on this color option. The charging case looks like the Realme Buds Air 3 with a glass cover with the company logo. It's quite compact and a little flatter, so it fits easily in your pocket. There's a small LED power indicator on the front of the case, a USB-C charging port on the bottom, and a separate metal Bluetooth pairing/reset button on the side.

These headphones are quite light, fit well, and are comfortable for long periods of time. The silicone tips fit snugly into the ear canal and provide decent passive noise isolation. The kit includes three pairs of earbuds, including a pre-installed middle earplug. For active noise cancellation (ANC) to work well, it is important to choose the right pair size. The top half of the bar supports touch controls, but there is no area marked to indicate the touch area. Overall the build quality of the product is quite satisfactory.

Realme Buds Air 5 Pro: Specifications and Features (9.5/10)
This is one of the advantages of the Realme Buds Air 5 Pro, starting with the dual driver setup. Like the Oppo Enco You also get support for the LDAC codec with Hi-Res Wireless Audio certification, which looks great at resolutions under 5K. Compatible with Bluetooth 5.3, these headphones also support AAC and SBC codecs. Dolby Atmos support is also available if your source device is Atmos compatible.

You get a wear detection sensor that turns the sound off when you remove the earbuds from your ear and turns it back on when you put them back in. This works fine. These headphones are IPX5 splash resistant and you can wear them to the gym or go for a run in light rain without any issues. However, this case is not tamper-proof. The touch sensitivity is good as long as you touch the right areas. You will hear a beep every time you press successfully.

You can set various touch gesture functions via the Realme Link app. You can play/pause, previous/next track, ANC on/off, voice assistant, etc. You can set Volume control is also here, but it can only be set to triple press. This is a great option, but unless you set play/pause to something and rely on it to detect wear, you're limited in the number of moves to perform all basic functions.

ANC on/off on both headphones can be set with just a touch and hold gesture. Each earcup has three microphones for call management and active noise cancellation. In game mode, Realme Buds Air 5 Pro latency can reach 40 ms. Even when watching content in normal mode, there is no noticeable lag between video and audio. These headphones support dual pairing and can be paired with two devices simultaneously. Additionally, you can use the LDAC codec on both devices.

Lastly, you get the best noise cancellation in this category with these headphones, at least numerically. You can switch between three ANC modes: ANC on, ANC off, and a transparent mode that lets in ambient sound. The company claims these headphones can reduce noise by up to 50dB in the 4000Hz range. And there are additional settings for ANC, clarity, and overall sound, which I'll cover in the next section.

Realme Buds Air 5 Pro: Performance (8.5/10)
Before we talk about sound quality, let's talk a little about ANC. We rate the Realme Buds Air 3's 42dB noise cancellation at 5K resolution as the best to date. The Buds Air 5 Pro have raised the bar not only in terms of numbers (from 42 dB to 50 dB), but also in terms of efficiency. Noise cancellation is significantly better than the OnePlus Buds Z2 or even the Oppo Enco Air3 Pro, with a comparable rating of 49dB.

This not only eliminates low-frequency sounds, such as the sound of an air conditioner or room fan, but also reduces some mid-frequency sounds, such as the human voice, although it does not completely eliminate them. Local train journeys with ANC are a delight (ears only). Outside, this significantly reduces traffic noise. There are four noise-canceling modes: maximum, medium, soft, and smart, and I barely noticed the difference.

Smart Mode automatically selects one of the other three modes depending on the ambient noise level. You also get a dedicated noise canceling option, but this is still in development and not a universal solution. Therefore, it is better to choose smart mode for ANC. There are also improvements to the transparency mode, but it can't beat the OnePlus Buds Z2's mode. Although it works well indoors, it makes a lot of wind noise outside. There is an option for smart wind cancellation, but for best results it's best to turn it off like the volume boost.

Wireless range is good, the connection between source and listener is strong at a distance of 10 meters without interference. These Realme headphones are loudest with volume optimization enabled and are loud enough even in noisy places at 50-60% volume range. You get four audio presets: Nature Balance, Clear Vocal, Clear Bass, and Bass Boost, the former being the most balanced, the latter being completely useless.

As I mentioned at the beginning, these headphones come with dual speakers like the Oppo Enco X2. Having two drivers allows you to split the frequency range between them instead of just one driver doing it all. But having an extra boost doesn't magically make the results great; Drivers must also be configured properly. Unfortunately, Realme's audio engineers couldn't replicate what Oppo and Dynaudio did with the Enco X2.

Realme Buds Air 5 Pro offers distinctive V-shaped sound with enhanced bass and treble. The center frequency is compressed in both directions. With the Clear Bass EQ, too much bass eats into the low frequencies, and with the Nature Balance setting, the bass is nice and tight, but the highs seem too bright and darken the upper mids. The Clear Vocals equalizer is better suited to content with a lot of vocals, such as podcasts, than music, and it's best to leave bass boost alone.

Luckily, Realme offers a 6-band equalizer similar to the one you find on most OnePlus headphones (but with a different frequency range) to adjust the sound, which helps improve the Realme Buds Air 5 Pro's output. The treble doesn't soften as much as I'd like, so the treble sounds a bit boomy. The equalizer helps control high frequencies and enhances mid and low frequencies, thereby providing a balanced output with good sound detail and clarity.

No, it doesn't work on the Enco X2, but the overall sound output seems smoother and pretty good for the sub-5K segment. The soundstage is also quite wide, giving a spacious impression. Compared to its closest competitors, the sound is slightly better than the Oppo Enco Air3 Pro and OnePlus Buds Z2, and much better than its predecessor, the Realme Buds Air 3.

The audio quality observations above are based on the LDAC codec. Audio detail is reduced when switching to AAC, but the sound quality is not too different and is far from bad. The volume seems a bit lower and the highs seem more attractive. So you can use it occasionally to save battery power; Further information can be found in the battery section.

The Golden Voice feature found on the Oppo Enco Air3 Pro and Oppo and OnePlus flagship phones is also present here. Using hearing tests, create a personalized profile based on your ear canal structure and hearing abilities. If you don't like the results of the first test, you can create multiple profiles by slightly manipulating the tests. If this setting is on, some tracks will sound more lively, but not always. Try it a few times.

Realme Buds Air 5 Pro: Call Quality (8.5/10)
The call quality on these headphones is very good. In fact, the Realme Buds Air 5 Pro is a great choice for those looking for sub-5K TWS headphones that are good for making calls. Interlocutors can hear each other perfectly both indoors and outdoors with excellent sound clarity.

All of these microphones help block out wind and other ambient noise when you're outdoors. Moreover, noise reduction does not really affect sound clarity. I tried calling from a very busy location and while the background noise didn't completely disappear, it didn't interfere with the conversation.

Realme Buds Air 5 Pro: Battery Life (8/10)
Get ready for some numbers. If you don't care much about it, let me summarize it for you. The Realme Buds Air 5 Pro's overall battery backup is quite good when using the AAC codec with or without ANC, but almost halves when using LDAC. This is one area where Realme could do better and use more battery power. I want to dig into the numbers.

The company promises 10 hours of playback time with headphones and 40 hours with the box when using the AAC codec at 50% volume with ANC disabled. When ANC is activated, the battery charge values ​​​​drop to 7 and 28 hours respectively. If you switch to the LDAC codec, the figures drop to 5 hours and 20 hours respectively, and that too without ANC. LDAC numbers with ANC enabled are acceptable, but they are already below average.

To Realme's credit, the numbers are accurate. During our testing with the LDAC codec, with ANC turned off and volume just above 50%, the buds lasted for 5 hours. With ANC enabled, the duration drops to less than 4 hours. With the AAC codec, the headphones lasted about 8 and a half hours before one of the headphones died. With noise cancellation, we arrived about 6 hours ahead of schedule. The case is capable of fully charging the headphones three times.

Realme Buds Air 5 Pro requires a total battery backup of 15 to 20 hours when using the LDAC codec, depending on the intensity of ANC use. Battery life ranges from 24 to 34 hours when using AAC, which is very impressive. In comparison, its main competitor, the Oppo Enco Air3 Pro that we recently reviewed, managed 16 to 23 hours with the LDAC codec, but these Realme headphones did better when it came to AAC.

These headphones support fast charging. A 10-minute charge can get you about 7 hours of AAC playback (including headphones and case) with ANC turned off. The headphones took less than an hour to fully charge from empty, while the case took another hour to charge a fully discharged battery to 100%.
