Redmi always pays attention to the Indian middle-class audience. The company always launch new products that are cheap and affordable for everyone.Recently, redmi launched a new phone called K50i 5G along with the phone they unveiled the new redmi buds 3.
In this article, we will review the Redmi Buds 3 Lite and discuss price specifications and quality.
Design & Build Quality
The Redmi Buds 3 Lite comes with an attractive Pebble-inspired compact case. It’s sleek, but on the downside, it can’t repel fingerprint smudges. And, I got scratched even when kept in my office bag. However, the earbuds are well secured and the magnetic lid does a good job of keeping them intact at all times.
The charging case is ultra-light with a weight of only 35 grams, even with buds weighing 4.2 grams. The case still feels lightweight and is very pocketable, courtesy of the plastic build.
Open the lid of the case, and you will find a set of earbuds beautifully encased inside. Take them out, and they are ready to pair with your device.
The Redmi Buds 3 Lite has a different look, thanks to the extra rubber ring (wing band) on the buds that gives them a “lock-in” design.
The interior has a matte finish, while the outer area houses the touch controls and is glossy.
The ear tips are also quite comfortable. That allows the earbuds to easily stick to the ears and provide a better grip without compromising comfort.
Ear tips also make it easy to wear the earbuds for hours. I usually wear them easily for 4-5 hours a day for listening to music, taking calls or watching any content, and they are quite comfortable.
Overall, it doesn’t look like Redmi has cut any corners by giving the Redmi Buds 3 Lite a good build quality and impressive finish. At such a low price, they look really good.
Redmi Buds 3 Lite: Sound Quality And Overall Performance
Honestly, you get a really good sound output in Buds 3 Lite for the price. At first, I didn’t know the price of the earbuds, but when I got to know them, I was surprised to get this good sound quality in this price range.
The Redmi Bus 3 Lite packs 6mm dynamic drivers that handle high and middle frequencies well. However, the bass is a bit underwhelming. That said, the overall sound quality for Bollywood or Punjabi style of music is quite clean and decent. At no time did I feel I was using budget earbuds, even while walking outdoors or commuting, so that’s quite a good experience in this price range.
Suppose you use premium services from Apple Music or Spotify. In that case, it will only elevate your experience as these platforms offer better sound quality than what we generally get on YouTube and other apps.
The Redmi Buds 3 Lite can be paired with only one smartphone at a time. However, pairing shouldn’t be a complaint at this price point.
Active Noise Cancellation would be a bit too much to ask for, but the passive noise cancellation is decent enough for outdoor use.
The voice call experience was pretty good, too. Even mid or high-range earbuds struggle here, but I had a good time taking voice and Zoom calls using Buds 3 Lite.
Redmi Buds 3 Lite: How’s The Battery Life
The Redmi Buds 3 Lite promises 18 hours of total battery time; each bud lasts about 6 hours. That means you can charge your buds about 3 times from the case on a full charge.
My usage is heavy, so I have to keep charging them once or twice a day, but with those who have moderate use, these buds can easily last for 2-3 days before you charge the case again.
Should You Buy Redmi Buds 3 Lite?
For Rs 1,999, you are getting a decent pair of earbuds that offer surprisingly good sound quality, decent battery life, and a pleasing overall experience, not to forget that they look pretty good too.
I would say there are hardly any earbuds in the budget range that I usually recommend, but Redmi Buds 3 Lite can be a good investment if you’re looking for a decent pair of TWS earbuds.
