The Buds T300 is the newest wireless earbuds from realme! I had the opportunity to get a hands-on review of these affordable bass-heavy true wireless stereo buds and I'd like to share them with you.
realme Buds T300 review

What's in the box?

realme Buds T300 review


The realme Buds T300 comes in a pebble-like shape that can easily fit into your pocket. The case is sturdy and has a satisfying click. It's available in two colors: Stylish Black and Youth White. The white variant is shiny, while the black variant is matte.

I reviewed the Stylish Black variant, and the interior has a brown color. The earbuds have a stem design and fit perfectly into my ears. They are comfortable to wear, and the silicon cups snuggle inside with a good grip. The earbuds come with a USB Type-C port for charging and an LED power indicator located below the brand logo.

With an IP55 water and dust resistance rating, the Buds T300 can withstand light splashes and gym sessions.

Connectivity-wise, the Buds T300 support Bluetooth 5.3 and offers compatibility with SBC, AAC codecs, and Dolby Atmos (depending on your device). With touch controls on each earbud, users can easily manage playback, ANC settings, track changes, and even access Google Assistant. The realme Buds T300 usually pairs with smartphones. I connected it to my iPhone and Samsung phones.

I tried to connect and add this device to my realme Link app but it's not available just yet. I'm not sure why, probably I'll wait for an app update soon. I read that you can adjust the controls for Active Noise Cancellation, Spatial Sound, gesture shortcuts, and more.


Regarding audio quality, the realme Buds T300 has 12.4mm Dynamic Bass drivers, providing lively sound and powerful bass. I actually love the quality especially when listening to bass-heavy KPOP songs. Active noise cancellation is present in the Buds T300, providing decent performance against low-frequency noises.

It also supports Dolby Atmos and provides an immersive stereo surround sound to make the audio from consumed media more engaging may it be music, games, or videos. This feature is only compatible when connected to a device that also supports Dolby Atmos.


Battery life is impressive! It's equipped with a 460 mAh battery, 43 mAh each bud, and supports fast charging. With each bud offers 6-7 hours of playback (with ANC off) and the charging case provides over a day and a half of total playback. This ensures you can enjoy your music throughout the day without worrying about running out of power.


The realme Buds T300 is now available in the Philippines for only P1,599. You can check out through Shopee, Lazada, or TikTok.

Overall, the realme Buds T300 are a budget-friendly alternative, offering a familiar design and commendable audio performance. With customizable sound modes and convenient touch controls, these earbuds provide a satisfying listening experience at an affordable price point.

Sony has joined forces with the renowned esports team Fnatic to introduce the latest additions to their acclaimed INZONE range. This collaboration aims to provide gamers with an unparalleled gaming experience like never before. The new lineup includes the INZONE Buds, a truly wireless gaming earbud, and the INZONE H5 wireless gaming headset.

INZONE Buds: Personalized Sound and Immersive Gaming

The INZONE Buds are designed to revolutionize the way gamers experience sound. Packed with Sony's renowned audio technology, these truly wireless gaming earbuds offer both PC and console gamers an immersive gaming experience. One standout feature is the 360 Spatial Sound, which allows users to hear the direction and distance of their opponents, giving them a competitive edge.

To ensure a personalized audio experience, the INZONE Buds offer Sound Field Optimization. By analyzing the shape of the outer ear and the acoustic characteristics of the ear canal, these earbuds deliver precise spatial sound. Gamers can further enhance their audio experience by creating a personalized hearing profile using the 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer smartphone app.

Another impressive feature is the Sound Tone Personalization, which optimizes the earbuds for the user's ear canal. By playing test sounds and using feedback microphones, the INZONE Buds measure how the sound fills the ear canal and personalize it accordingly using the INZONE Hub PC application. This results in a truly spatial listening experience, bringing games to life with dynamic sound reproduction.

INZONE H5: Extended Gameplay and Comfort

For gamers who prefer a wireless gaming headset, Sony presents the INZONE H5. This headset offers an astonishing 28 hours of uninterrupted gameplay, ensuring that gamers can enjoy extended gaming sessions without worrying about battery life. Comfort is also a top priority, as Sony has designed the INZONE H5 with long gaming sessions in mind.

Celebrating Fnatic's Success and Collaboration

Both the INZONE Buds and INZONE H5 were developed in collaboration with Fnatic, a renowned esports team that has been operating for 20 years and recently secured back-to-back international titles in the VALORANT Champions Tour. This collaboration brings together Sony's expertise in audio technology and Fnatic's deep understanding of the gaming community's needs.

Expanding the INZONE Range

In addition to the new products developed in collaboration with Fnatic, Sony is also launching a sleek black version of the highly acclaimed INZONE H9 wireless noise-cancelling headset. With these new additions, Sony continues to elevate the gaming experience for PC and PlayStation gamers, providing enhanced audio realism and immersive gameplay.
Fnatic CEO, Sam Mathews, said: “Our partnership continues to push esports performance to its highest level, gearing up and supporting our professional teams to operate at their greatest potential. One of our first priorities as partners was to bring the extensive competitive experience of our pros to the development of INZONE Buds and INZONE H5.

In particular, our teams advised Sony that INZONE Buds would be an ideal gaming earbud with the battery life and comfort that can withstand even longest gaming sessions, as well as immersive audio our pros can rely on to overcome competition on the global stage.

We are thrilled that our global fan base now has the opportunity to experience our collaborative efforts with these earbuds and game with the knowledge they’ve got their favorite pros backing them.”


The INZONE H5 will be available in the Philippines at Sony Authorized Dealers starting October 20, 2023, priced at PHP 9,999. Meanwhile, INZONE Buds are set to be launched on November 10, 2023, which will retail for PHP 13,999.
