Appearance & Comfort & Call
The charging case is oval in shape as a whole, with a space capsule design, and the earbuds inside can be vaguely seen through the translucent upper cover.
The middle frame adopts a curved star track design, which is inspired by the orbit of the planets. At the same time, the curved design makes it easier to open the cover with fingers. Below the middle frame is the brand logo and indicator lights.
The biggest highlight on the outside of earbuds is that the headset stem has been processed by NCVM vacuum plating process, and has a shiny metallic effect. The coating on the surface is observed at close range, and the texture is good. At the same time, a hidden touch area is integrated on the top.
After actual measurement, the overall weight of realme Buds Air 3 Neo is about 39.1g, and the weight is well controlled. A single earbud weighs about 4.3g, which can be said to be very light.
Realme Buds Air3 Neo also has AI ENC call noise cancelling technology, which can greatly reduce the surrounding ambient noise during calls, effectively extract clear human voices, and bring clearer call effects than traditional ENC noise cancelling technology.

Sound Quality & Gaming Latency
The earbuds have a built-in 10mm bass dynamic driver, and PEEK+TPU polymer composite diaphragm blessing. At the same time, the unique independent sound cavity design is adopted to avoid excessive reflection and refraction of the airflow, which can make the dynamic driver better exert its strength.

- Clear: The vocals are clear and the tone is brighter.
- Balanced: The low, mid and high frequencies are more balanced and the sound is more natural.
- Bass: The downward extension of the bass is enhanced, the sound is more surging, and the atmosphere is stronger when playing games and watching movies.
I randomly selected the live version of some songs for trial listening to see how well the realme Buds Air 3 Neo can restore the songs.
From the actual listening experience, the performance of earbuds is remarkable. Listening to Pakho Chau’s “一击即中”, the drums in the song are firm and elastic, the singer’s magnetic voice is restored in place, the voice is sonorous and powerful, and the emotional expression is very contagious. With a mobile phone that supports Dolby Atmos, you can also get a better surround-sound Live House presence.
In the realme Link APP, you can also select sound effects, turn on volume enhancement, set Dolby Atmos and turn on game mode. After the low-latency mode is turned on, the ultra-low latency can be as low as 88ms, so you don’t have to worry about the problem of out-of-sync audio and video when playing games and watching videos.
