Phone manufacturer and industry challenger Realme has announced a new pair of Wireless Earbuds, the Buds Q, in another attempt to shake up a market dominated by power players like Samsung and Apple – and right now, you can get them for 10% off.
The Realme Buds Q have plenty to offer if you’re interested in a pair of wireless earbuds. The Buds Q start at a nice $79 price point, so it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on these. Realme’s newest earbuds have also launched in time for the company’s Fanfest sale, with up to 10% off phones and accessories from now until September 10.
Like music on the go? Consider getting a new phone plan
Listening to music and podcasts with a wireless device on the go is one of the joys of the world we live in, but your experience would be severely limited without a decent phone plan. Constant music and podcast streaming sucks up more data than you might think, and coupled with social media use you might run through your plan quite quickly. Try and pick up a plan with more than 2GB of data, and that might satisfy your music streaming habits. Below you’ll find a table with a selection of mobile plans from a range of providers.

The Realme Buds Q: Features explored
Like all of Realme’s offerings, the Buds Q exist to be a challenger device. With a current sale price starting of $71.10 (although $79 normally), don’t expect the quality to knock your socks off, but that being said you might really love these. Both earbuds have a 40mAh built-in battery, and there’s a 400mAh battery in the case, so you can expect about 20 hours of music on the go. The Buds Q also fully charge in two hours.
Between them, the earbuds have a single mic in one of the headsets, providing noise cancellation for calling. There’s also a 10mm Dynamic Bass Boost drive, which powers your audio quality, along with a R1Q True Wireless Chip. The buds themselves weigh about 3.6g, and have a nice ergonomic design to them. There’s also a “Gaming Mode” with lower latency that you can activate with the buds, by long pressing on both sides of the earbuds.
Realme brought art director José Lévy on board to design these earbuds. Lévy has a long career in fashion and design, having previously collaborated with luxury brands such as Hermés, Nina Ricci and Cacharel.
“At Realme, we aim to be known globally as the brand that delivers the best pound-for-pound tech products on the market. Our latest partnership with renowned Art Director José Lévy ensures that we continue to provide our customers with products that combine trendy design with cutting-edge technology,” said Managing Director of Realme Australia, Andy Yang.
