Realme’s AIoT sub-brand DIZO debuted in India in May and has launched about a dozen products across different categories until now, including wireless earphones. And the company has announced it will further expand its portfolio of audio devices in India on September 23 with the DIZO Buds Z TWS earphones.
While DIZO hasn’t revealed the price of the Buds Z yet, the company, in a press note sent to the media, said that the “DIZO Buds Z launch is an attempt by the brand to expand its smart entertainment portfolio of products in the country” and that it’s confident that the earbuds will be “embraced by music lovers and tech fanatics alike.”
DIZO has also set up a product page for the Buds Z on its official website, revealing the earphones’ design and features.
The Buds Z flaunt what DIZO calls a “Natural Light Design,” reflecting light in multiple colors. The earphones come with small stems and have three color options – Onyx, Leaf, and Pearl.
Each earbud weighs 3.7 grams and packs a 10mm Dynamic driver. The Buds Z have a low latency of 88ms and feature Environmental Noise Cancellation (ENC) for calls. There’s no Active Noise Cancellation here, but you will get passive noise canceling, thanks to the in-ear design and silicone ear tips, which come in small, medium, and large sizes.
The DIZO Buds Z support touch controls and have three sound effects – Bass Boost+, Dynamic, and Bright. There’s also a volume enhancer mode, which, as evident from its name, increases the volume of your audio. You can tinker with all these settings using the Realme Link app on Android devices. That doesn’t mean you can’t use the Buds Z with iOS devices. It’s just that you won’t have access to these settings and customizations.
The Buds Z come with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and are IPX4 water-resistant. Each earbud packs a 43 mAh battery, with the charging case having a 380 mAh cell. DIZO claims the Buds Z can offer 4.5 hours of endurance, with the charging case providing another 11.5 hours of playback. The latter also has a USB-C port, allowing you to get 1.5 hours of playtime with 10 minutes of charge.
The DIZO Buds Z will be sold in India through Flipkart and select retail stores. We’ll know more about their pricing and availability next Thursday.
