Realme Buds T300 Review: An AirPods Lookalike For A Fraction Of The Price

Realme Buds T300 Review: An AirPods Lookalike For A Fraction Of The Price

The Indian smart wear market is growing thanks to competitive pricing from Chinese brands. One of them is Realme, a sub-brand of BBK Electronics known for its "killer flagship phones". BBK Parts typically offers high-end laptops well above their price range and has built a reputation over the years that allows you to buy these devices with confidence. The latest example is the Realme Buds T300, which I've been testing to see if the brand's other offerings offer similar value for money.

The Realme Buds T300 is an exact copy of the AirPods Pro 2, with a few minor changes: the cases are the same size and shape, and the white color of the headphones I received only increases the similarity. Similarities are also found inside, with the biggest difference being that the earbuds are slightly less curved than the AirPods. However, I love what Realme has done with the interior of the case, adding a splash of color to the bright 'Youth White' design.

White is a common choice for headphones because it gives them a softer look than black. But color aside, the Realme Buds T300 are solid headphones that punch above their weight in terms of quality and durability. The housing is durable and locked, so the hinge will last for years.

Although the Buds T300 promise to listen to music for 8 hours without a charge, they are pleasantly light and you will forget about them as soon as they are in your ears. They fit like a glove (unusual for me) and I'm sure they fit you too.

In terms of sound quality, the Realme Buds T300 sound sharp, although the default settings seem to favor high frequencies instead of low frequencies. I found this setup clunky, but thankfully the headphones allow you to switch sound modes via the Realme Link app. There are four options: Serenade, Original Sound, Clear Bass and Deep Bass. I chose Pure Bass because I want to feel the beat, but you can choose whatever suits your mood and music.

The headphones have some amazing features like 12.4mm drivers, 30dB noise reduction and spatial audio effect. The 30dB ANC isn't as strong as some more expensive headphones - like the 50dB Realme Buds Air 5 Pro - but it still does a good job of blocking out annoying sounds around you.

Battery life is another positive point of these headphones. They say they work for 40 hours, which is enough to last a whole week. Of course, your mileage may vary depending on how much you use it and the settings you choose.

But the best thing about these headphones is of course the price. It's priced at just Rs 2,299, which is a bargain considering what it offers: great design, active noise cancellation and sound quality that will keep you happy. If you are looking for headphones in this price range, don't think twice and get the Realme Buds T300.
