While the Realme Buds T300 is entirely made of plastic, its build quality is commendable.
The plastic used to make the TWS is high quality, and both the case and earbuds feel premium.
However, you must note that these earbuds are available in two colors, white and black.
The white ones have a glossy finish, and the black ones have matt.
So, the white earbuds and case attract smudges and scratches easily. However, the black ones don’t.
On the flip side, the white variant looks more attractive compared to the black one.
So, the choice is yours, whether you want the white variant or the black one. But overall, you get sturdy build quality.
Also, the earbuds sit well in the case and don’t fall from the case that easily.
Verdict: The build quality of Realme Buds T300 is pretty good, as the earbuds and carrying case feel premium.
Build Quality Rating: 4.2★

Design and Comfort
The Realme Buds T300 fits comfortably in the ears, and you won’t notice the earbuds in the ears after some time.
The comfort level is excellent, thanks to the ergonomic design.
If you have ever used the Oppo Encho Air 2/3 Pro, you will find the similarities in design.
The Realme Buds T300 looks like the Encho Air 2 or 3.
But what if you have small ears?
Fortunately, the Buds T300 also fits well into smaller ears. However, the comfort level won’t be as similar as on large ears.
Verdict: You won’t feel ear fatigue after using the Realme Buds T300, even for hours. The design and comfort are just great for the price.
Design and Comfort Rating: 4.4★

Here’s what the company claims about battery life.
- 8 hrs music playback (at 50% volume, ANC OFF)
- 6 hrs music playback (at 50% volume, ANC ON)
- 4 hrs calling time (ANC ON/OFF)
- 40 hrs music playback with carrying case (at 50% volume, ANC OFF)
- 30 hrs music playback with carrying case (at 50% volume, ANC ON)
Well, the claims are impressive, but as we all know, real-life data is different from what the company claims.
Also, we listen to music above 60-70% most of the time, so it’s obvious to get less battery than the company claims.
Here’s what you will get in real life.
- 5 hrs music playback (at 80% volume, ANC OFF)
- 4 hrs music playback (at 80% volume, ANC ON)
- 3.5 hrs calling time (ANC ON/OFF)
- 32 hrs music playback with carrying case (at 80% volume, ANC OFF)
- 24 hrs music playback with carrying case (at 80% volume, ANC ON)
The battery life is decent overall. It’s not as good as advertised, but surely far from the worst.
Verdict: You should not expect phenomenal battery life from Realme Buds T300. But still, the overall battery endurance is good and manageable.
Battery Rating: 3.9★

The Realme Buds T300 has quad mics, two mics on each earbud. Also, the earbuds support ENC.
During calls, we have noticed that the person on the other end can hear your voice clearly.
The call quality has been great, especially indoors.
The outdoor call quality is equally good. However, the noise is evident in such an environment.
To eliminate the noise, the earbuds kick in the ENC, which reduces the noise significantly.
However, the voice feels compressed, and the noise doesn’t get eliminated completely.
Still, the overall calling experience is good for the most part.
Verdict: The call quality on Realme Buds T300 is not perfect, but it’s good and completely justifies the price.
Sound and Bass Quality
The Realme T300 delivers great sound quality for the price.
The bass is deep and punchy and feels rich. Note that the bass is not boomy, which is a good thing.
Having deep bass doesn’t mean that the other frequencies are compromised.
The vocals are clear, and the trebles are crisp. The sound separation is also on point.
However, due to the warmer sound signature, the vocals and trebles feel less detailed, but still, it’s not a big issue.
If you prefer bass, you will love these earbuds, as the bass performance is impressive for the price.
The earbuds have different sound modes, but we found the balanced and bass modes best suited for mass.
You can also create your own sound profile for the best audio experience.
Overall, the sound and bass quality are great for the price.
Verdict: The primary reason for buying any TWS is the sound quality, and we are happy to say that Realme Buds T300 meets expectations. Its sound quality is surely one of the best for the price.

The Realme Buds T300 ANC offers up to 30dB ANC, which is great for the price.
But the main question is, does the ANC really make that much of a difference?
Well, yes, the ANC makes a noticeable difference the moment you turn it ON.
However, you must know that 30dB ANC falls in the good category, but it’s not the best.
Yes, most of the noise gets eliminated, but you will be able to hear honking and other high dB sounds.
Also, if you listen to music at around 80% volume, then you won’t be able to notice ANC making any difference.
Verdict: The Realme Buds T300 offers one of the best ANC at around Rs 2300. However, you should not expect it to be as good as the premium earbuds.
ANC Rating: 4.0★
Are you an audiophile? If yes, then check these IEMs under 2000.
The Realme Buds T300 is not a dedicated gaming TWS, but still delivers a good gaming experience.
The 50ms latency is not the best, but it’s good enough for most users.
While playing games, the latency is not much noticeable, and you enjoy the whole gameplay.
Yes, if you are a heavy gamer, then you can surely notice the minor delay, but most users can’t.
Also, you can’t expect the latency to be as good as wired earphones.
Verdict: The Realme Buds T300 is an ideal choice for casual to intermediate gamers. However, extreme gaming lovers should look for more premium options.
Gaming Rating: 4.0★
