If you reside in India and are in search of a new pair of wireless earbuds, then the Realme Buds Air is most likely one of those you are considering. However, while it may tick all of your boxes in terms of features such as support for wireless charging and USB-C charging, you may actually not like the design. If you prefer earbuds that look nothing like Apple’s AirPods, then you may want to check out the new Noise Shots XO.
The Noise Shots XO is a new pair of wireless earbuds from a company called Noise. This is not their first TWS earbuds but it is their first to support wireless charging and USB-C charging. Noise also makes smartwatches and action cameras.
The earbuds have a metallic paint job and come in a circular case with a swiveling lid. There are three color variants – Metallic White, Rose Gold, and Space Grey.
The Noise Shots XO connects via Bluetooth 5.0. It has support for voice assistants and also has an IPX7 rating making them safe for use for exercising and in the rain. There is support for Qualcomm’s aptX for HD audio and CVC 8.0 with wind noise cancellation for clearer calls. The earbuds will provide up to 6 hours of playback on a single charge but that goes up to 36 hours when you include the charging case. The earbuds takes 2 hours to charge.
The Noise Shots XO support touch controls. You can adjust the volume by tapping and then holding, call up the voice assistant by tapping thrice, answer or end calls by tapping once, and tapping twice to change tracks.
