Realme Buds Air 3S review

Design and materials

Realme Buds Air 3S

Once out of the package, the Realme Buds Air 3S they will present themselves to you with an uncovered face: the charging case, in fact, is equipped with a plastic upper panel that allows you to immediately see the contents (in our case in white color, but they are also available in the black version).

Both earphones are magnetic and adhere perfectly to their housing, remaining firm and secure, even by shaking the case with the top panel open. The earphones are equipped with rubbers in plastic in 3 different sizes (small, medium, large) and onesilicone flap which promotes adhesion to the ear.

The charging case, completely made of plastic, is equipped with LED indicator and connection USB-C. Furthermore, a small button positioned on the front allows us to pair and reset the headphones.

Coupling and controls

The coupling function is quick and painless: just open the top panel of the charging case and press and hold for 3 seconds the key on the front to see the indicator LED flash white. In this way we will have entered the pairing mode.

The headphones can be easily paired with both devices Android and iOS. If we were using an iPhone or an iPad, we will need to go to the settings of the Bluetooth and manually select the device. The story is different with Android smartphones: in fact, it will be enough to open the charging case to see the connection popup on the phone.

In both cases, however, we recommend downloading the app first Realme link (which we'll talk about in a few minutes) to avoid problems configuring settings, especially on iOS.

The headphones are equipped with touch gesture very simple: with a double touch we will be able to pause or resume music playback and answer calls. With a longer pressure instead, it is possible to raise and lower the volume. To enter gaming mode (which we will examine shortly), however, you will need to press and hold both earphones.

Sound quality and noise cancellation

Le Realme Buds Air 3S have driver da 11 millimeters with triple layer titanium liquid silicone bass booster. The result is a deep sound, capable of delivering truly exceptional bass. The headphones also support the technology Dolby Atmos, but only on smartphones enabled to play this audio format.

Through the settings it is possible to adjust thebass intensitychoosing between "pure"and "deep“. The result, once again, will be truly exceptional sound that will allow you to immerse yourself totally in your favorite music. The most avid audiophiles, on the other hand, will be able to personalize your experience of listening thanks to the creation of your own equalizer.

Furthermore, these headphones are equipped with ENC ambient noise reduction with AI during calls, thanks to the presence of as many as four microphones that will automatically filter out the most annoying noises. During our tests, calls always returned a crystal clear voice, free from any disturbance. A prime example was the elimination of construction noise.

Le Realme Buds Air 3S they also offer a gaming mode that reduces latency to 69 milliseconds, with perfect synchronization between audio and video. We tested this function with the console that most creates problems with Bluetooth connections, Nintendo Switch, and we did not encounter any problems, with an enjoyable and uninterrupted gaming experience.

Headphones are also equipped with double connection thanks to Bluetooth 5.3. In fact, it is possible to connect the Buds Air 3S to the two devices simultaneously, automatically changing the priority. In fact, we will be able to listen to the game audio of our console and automatically switch to the sound of the telephone in case a call arrives.


Le Buds Air 3S can be controlled via the smartphone app Realme link which, especially on iOS devices, makes it easy to pair headphones and adjust audio settings.

Through the application you can select the type of sound effect you want for bass, also going to create a custom equalizer with the settings that are best suited to listening to our music.

Realme link it also allows the enabling of the gaming mode and simultaneous connection to multiple devices. If the mode dedicated to games can be activated with gestures, the only way to enable the dual connection is to switch from the app.

Le touch gesture that we mentioned above can also be customized and reordered according to your preferences. It will be possible to choose which headset to perform certain actions on through the list that you can observe in the gallery above.

Battery life

The battery of Realme Buds Air 3S guarantees a music reproduction of at least 7 hours, which drops to approx 3 hours in case of call. Thanks to the charging case, you can extend the battery life up to 30 hours when listening to music and up to about 16 hours when calling. The real lifesaver, however, is called "quick charging Dart".

Thanks to this charging technology, in fact, the case can charge beyond the 50% the headphones in just 10 minutes of stay inside. This will guarantee us an additional 5 hours of playback with a waste of only 600 seconds. Your journey on the meter will therefore be saved by a quick charge in the case.
