Planning to buy Airpods

Anonymous, 26 Apr 2020Air pods pro cost 13k. It's garbage quality sound compared... moreNo it costs 24k.. and no other manufacturer has active noise cancellation with true airbud style and with this much quality at this price. Bose in ears are not As good as their over ears.. so basically no one is in the competition

Tbh I see a lot of the poorer side of Indian's complaining about the price of the airpods or what the company means. But there are a lot of richer Indians in India who don't have to care about the price. So just because you think that airpods are overpriced dosen't mean that they are bad quality. I personally have the Gen 2 Airpods aswell as the older Galaxy buds, BOTH are crazy good. The airpods work perfectly with my other apple products such as my macbook and and iPad pro. It connects seamlessly to my other apple products, which is why they cost that bit extra, because of their H1 chipset whcih allows me to connect easily to all apple products, unlike the other TWS earbuds like Realme's buds air.
You can call me an 'iSheep' or whatever but i do also use android {i also have a samsung s10e as a backup phone} so i do appreciate all companies efforts in making their own ear buds. People should stop bashing apple for rice at this stage, we get it they expensive, no one wants hear about your china clone that are cheaper. Also most of you don't even heave airpods to begin with, let alone criticize apple.

Boparai22, 24 Apr 2020Apply buds no 1 because In india lot of people buy apple ... moreWow how ignorant.. Showing off with apple products.. that trend has long gone. Nobody cares now except very lower part of our society, and of course they can’t afford them. Coming to audio quality and seem less-function, nothing beats Airpods. Specially the airpods pro. There is no competition. Now realme air buds, now it’s not bad at all. It’s better than most under 5k range

IpsDisplay, 24 Apr 2020But that's the point They apple ear pods/buds are amongs... moreExactly much better sounding ones available at lower price and if you pay a little more than air pod price , you get features like capacitive buttons with proximity sensor, waterproofing, better battery, better noise cancelation etc.

Stop using wireless Bluetooth earbuds it can cause brain tumours.. Be cautious.

Still doesn't show the fact that for getting the quality of a Rs 100 wired 3.5 mm headphone, you need to shell out at least Rs 500 + on a TWS

A comparitively smaller brand such as Noise being in the Top 5 TWS brands list is great.

I tried really hard to switch over to wireless earbuds. But to be honest, I still see them as a waste of money. For the price of Apple airpods, you can get a very good pair of in ear headphones. And I find it funny that Cx180 from Sennheiser are better sounding than Samsung and Apple offerings regarding costing only 1/10 the price.

I bought the galaxy Buds Plus for Rs. 12k and absolutely love them. They are tiny and I mean tiny, they fit perfectly and you can run, change clothes, etc without ever taking them out.

They have excellent Ambient Mode which also includes an experimental level which makes it like a hearing aid, lol.

The sound quality is the best I've heard in an earbud, wireless or otherwise. It supports AAC with Apple devices and never did I feel that the Bluetooth audio was bad. It is excellent really.

Battery backup is industry leading. 11 hours on a single charge. You can put music, go to sleep and wake up with 15 percent battery remaining.

They receive firmware updates constantly and I've noticed better audio quality and ambient noise quality over time with firmware updates.

I don't understand the rambling in this comment section. Realme Buds won't offer anywhere near the level of quality, comfort, battery life and firmware updates that Galaxy Buds does. The case is also tiny and easily pocketable.

If you want something on a budget then sure get the Realme Buds are better but they won't offer the combination of the above features anywhere near the quality of what the flagships offer.

These buds are priced higher for a reason and that's a lot of research and development that contributes into building a product that meets all needs suitably well. Stop belittling people like little kids. 12k is a steal for this quality of TWS.

I have a set of galaxy buds.. Samsung usually push one of their accessories with their flagships.. But it's a little irritating to maintain.. Its another device to charge.. It does charge up really fast though

Shadocx, 23 Apr 2020You're probably talking about Apple, if they sound better, ... moreBut that's the point

They apple ear pods/buds are amongst the worst sound quality wise from a price to performance point
