Design and Comfort
Realme Buds Air 5 pro comes in an oval-shaped compact and matte finish case. On the top side of the case is the Realme branding, a light indicator on the front side, a reset button on the right side, and a charging port at the bottom. The look and feel of this case are similar to that of Realme Buds Air 3. The case provides a premium feel and there has been no compromise with the build quality of the case.
The earbuds inside the case are held tightly with magnets that do not allow them to fall from the case. The earbuds are stem-shaped with a matte and glossy finish. If you use proper earcups, they provide you with a secured fit and do not fall even while you are working out.
With the IPX5 water and splash-resistant feature, you can easily use it while working out without the fear of getting your earbuds damaged. IPX5 features along with the secured fit make it a great companion for your workouts.
Battery life is an important factor when choosing true wireless earbuds, and Realme Buds Air 5 Pro doesn't disappoint. These earbuds come with an impressive battery life of up to 10 hours on a single charge and a total of around 40 hours with the charging case. It comes with fast charging support where the brand claims 7 hours of playback time with just 10 minutes of charge.
The playback time may vary depending on the usage of the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) feature.
Whether you're using them with your smartphone, tablet, or laptop, you can trust that your music or gaming experience will stay uninterrupted with the latest Bluetooth 5.3 in the earbuds. The Instant Wake and Pair technology with Google's fast pairing support, speeds the entire connection process. When you open the lid of the earbuds, a pop-up opens in the phone with a connect button. This eases the entire connection process.

This Realme earbuds come with Realme Link Application support. In the application, you can choose the settings of your earbuds. On the top, it shows the battery percentage of the earbuds. There is an option to switch to transparency mode, active noise cancellation mode, or off.
The Noise Cancellation mode has different options like:
There are four different equalizer modes for you to choose from:
With the spatial mode, you can get surround sound effects, that will enhance your entire music experience.
These Realme earbuds come with a 40 ms low latency gaming mode. We tried to test the gaming experience of this earbud with a BGMI game test, and we can conclude that the latency is justified. The loudness is adequate, the vocals are clear and the stereo separation is amazing so you can easily identify if the enemy is coming from the left or right. If you are planning to consider this for gaming, then they can be a great choice.
Mr. LazyTech Pro Tip - We recommend you turn on the SBC codec for a better gaming experience. We tried SBC and AAC both, on multiple earbuds, and SBC mode enhances the entire gaming experience
The Realme Buds Air 5 Pro delivers impressive sound quality, thanks to their 11 mm dynamic drivers along with SBC / AAC codec support. The loudness, vocals, and instrument separation are pretty good in the earbuds, and the 6 mm Micro-planar tweeter enhances the trebles.
The best part about these earbuds is the customization available in the sound. You can customize the equalizer modes, volume enhancers, spatial modes, and tons of different settings.
The bass of the earbuds is pretty decent. As a bass lover, you might feel the need for improvement in the bass of the earbuds, as the powerful boosted thumpy effects were found missing.
Mr LazyTech Pro Tip - We recommend you not to turn on Volume Enhancer mode, as the clarity of vocals is reduced.
Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)
One of the standout features of the Realme Buds Air 5 Pro is its Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology. ANC allows you to immerse yourself in your music or podcasts without being distracted by the noise around you. Realme's ANC technology is designed to cancel out up to 50dB of noise. The ANC mode works pretty well. You will not be able to hear far noises, but if anyone close to you is speaking something then you will be able to hear it.
Realme Buds Air 5 Pro comes with six microphone setup, but the calling experience of the earbuds could have been improved. In indoor conditions, you will get a pretty good calling experience, but in outdoor conditions, the vocals were not clear, and there were distortions in between.
Sound Quality - 9 / 10
Bass Quality - 8.5 / 10
Calling Test - 8 / 10
Gaming Experience - 9.5 / 10
ANC Feature - 8.5 / 10
In conclusion, the Realme Buds Air 5 Pro is a great addition to the world of wireless earbuds. With their powerful ANC technology, impressive sound quality, long battery life, and user-friendly features, they offer a complete audio package.
