If there is one company that is no hesitation in trying to be the centre of attention with the value for money of its products it is definitely real. OPPO's subsidiary arrived in Spain as it arrives in many countries, offering good products at almost impossible prices.
That, in our country, is very important, which is why an extremely fast gap has been made. And we're not just talking about mobiles, although we'll look at the new 7 5G realm, but also accessories.
The catalogue of the firm is very large, with cheap options such as the realm Buds Air Neo, others of high quality, such as the Buds Air, and now with a professional, the realm Buds Air Pro.

Correct design and improved materials
When a company sells a product with technical specifications that are only seen in products worth twice as many arches an eyebrow. Realme is not a brand that will try to deceive its users, but it does not do magic either.
There are several reasons why Air Buds Pro realm is cheaper, and one of them is the materials.
The construction of these headphones has reminded us of the Vivo TWS Neo, with a very bright plastic of little thickness and which has a lot of traces and fat of the skin.
Also, it is sometimes difficult to remove them from the box because they slip and the magnet used for the headphones to charge smoothly does not help.
On the other hand, I have to admit that they are not the most comfortable I have ever tasted. This indeed depends a lot on the shape of each person's ear, but I have been reminded of the Pixel Buds 2, and while wearing them on sometimes (not always) I have found myself somewhat uncomfortable.
Buds Air Pro realm have ANC
The sound quality of headphones that carry the Pro suffix in the name should be very high, right?. The reality is that while the sound is correct, we don't have an experience similar to the eye with headphones of 200 or 300 euros, which are usually the ones that are called similarly.
Also, we have a transparency mode that allows you to listen to our environment and with active noise cancellation (ANC).
We can't say that the ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) doesn't notice, but it doesn't do much. The same goes for the transparency mode.
We had to perform concrete tests to be aware that there really were changes in sound, and it was. The problem is that, between the shape of the headphones and the hardware used, the result is not very different from the one we have with other headphones that seal the ear more even if they do not have ANC.
Options and autonomy
This program allows us not only to turn sound modes on or off, which can also be modified by pressing on the headset, but also to activate or not some functions such as low latency mode to play or watch videos.
As for gestures, we can set a double tap or a triple tap on each of the headphones, as well as the activation or not of the automatic pause and playback mode when putting on the headphones.
As for the battery, the company states that we can charge them in an hour 100% using the USB C port. With 10 minutes we have for about 3 hours of playback and the autonomy is about 20 hours with ANC and 25 hours without it.
However, we miss the wireless charging we saw in the original Air Buds realm.
The Realme Air Buds Pro has a clear bet: ANC and price
We got to the endpoint. Is it worth buying the Realme Buds Air Pro? The response is positive as long as we especially value noise cancellation and have a very tight budget.
Personally, I think the other two headphones in the company we've analyzed, the Buds Air and the Bud's Neo, better value for money. And they're more comfortable, although this is tremendously personal.
Buds Air Pro realm will be released in Spain on 3 December, for 89.99 euros. They will be available in two colours, black and white.
