Realme Buds Q
One of the great disadvantages of this type of headphones is usually the price, but the Realme Buds Q are one of the best options if we are looking to spend little. By between 20 and 30 euros, the Buds Q are headphones true wireless that quality / price have no competition.
Without having a great audio quality, they are heard perfectly but without great pretensions. Its dimensions, button-shaped and weighing 3.6 grams, make them very comfortable to wear during the days. In addition, you can change the pad to adapt it even better to your ear.
One of the most striking features of these headphones is that they have touch surface. This means that, without buttons to use, you can perform various actions with the Buds Q: two taps to pause or play, three to skip songs, and more.
Also keep in mind their autonomy: about three hours in a row or up to fifteen hours with the charges of the case (which supports 4.5 charges). In short, they are a very attractive option if we are looking for good headphones for a very affordable price.
Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earbuds
We continue with headphones where the main attraction is the price. The Xiaomi MI True Wireless Earbuds are, like the previous ones, button-shaped headphones in-ear (that are inserted inside the ear) that do not exceed 20 euros Price.
As in the case of the previous ones, they are headphones with an autonomy of between three and four hours of operation with up to fifteen hours expandable with the charges of the case. Its audio quality is surprising for the price: it is not spectacular or perfect, but it will delight those looking for a very low investment.
Wireless Earbuds also feature a touch surface with which to execute the different actions and each headset can be connected independently. But keep in mind that they are slightly larger than the Buds Q: 72 millimeters long and 4.2 grams each. Although this may seem trivial, if we have very small ears, these types of button-shaped helmets can become annoying.
Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 / Basic
But if our budget is somewhat higher and we want a better experience without approaching the high 100 euros on average for this type of device, we have two alternatives. The Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphones 2, by around 60 euros, and its Basic version, 40 euros.
The first, My True Wireless Earphones 2, are a very interesting option, especially for their price. Not only do they represent a great leap in audio quality, but they also have Noise Cancellation -something very important if we use them to go to work, for example- which works very well for its price.
In addition, these headphones also have a system for detect if we have them placed or not. Thanks to this, the reproduction of content stops automatically if you remove any of the helmets, increasing its autonomy (of about fourteen hours).
The Basics, for their part, cost 40 euros and you renounce both the noise cancellation and the presence sensor. At the same time, they are somewhat lighter than the premium version and have a little more battery. It should also be noted that all its finish is in plastic.
Huawei Freebuds 3
The Huawei Freebuds 3 are an alternative that is much more similar to the AirPods than the previous ones, although also much higher in price. Between 90 and 120 euros, the Freebuds 3 are positioned as a direct option if we are looking for headphones true wireless other than Apple’s.
With a very similar style of cane, and in different colors, the Freebuds 3 have a Noise Cancellation very successful if we consider its open design. In addition, each of the headphones weighs just 4.5 grams, which makes them very light and comfortable to wear for several hours.
In addition, Huawei has provided a free app (Huawei AI) for those users who do not have a mobile of the brand. Through this app, you can automatically connect the headphones, update the firmware and adjust their touch controls.
Yes: If we do not have a Huawei mobile with its own OS, the presence sensor does not work.
Google Pixel Buds
Although little known, Google has its own headphones true wireless that can delight those who use their mobile for everything: the Google Pixel Buds. With a price of around 190 euros, is an option for people looking to get the most out of their Android (or Pixel mobiles).
First of all, we must highlight its sober design. White in color, the earbuds only feature a white center with Google’s “G” marked. They come with three-size ear cushions and an arch that conforms to the inside of the ear, preventing unwanted movements.
On Android, Pixel Buds have a own app from which to configure the headphones to our liking and see the battery of both the headphones themselves and the case. In addition to some very interesting features such as activating the “search”, in case you get lost around the house.
Pixel Buds do not have noise cancellation, but they do have “adaptive sound“, that is, they adapt to ambient noise. At the same time, they have the Google Assistant saying the now famous phrase” Ok Google “, allowing calls and other actions to be made without having the phone.
Regarding autonomy: between the Pixel Buds’ own battery and the charging station, the 24 hours of operation. A more than attractive useful life time.
