Realme Dizo Wireless Neckband Bluetooth Earphones Review: No-Frills Wireless Listening – NDTV

December 5, 2021 by No Comments

Competitive pricing is often the key to success in the Indian consumer electronics space, and Realme has often got this right, especially for its accessories and audio products. The company has now gone a step further, making prices even more attractive through its Realme TechLife ecosystem spinoff, Dizo. This new company has quickly launched a bunch of affordable audio and wearable products in India, including the Dizo Wireless neckband earphones that I have on review here.

Priced at Rs. 1,099 in India, the Dizo Wireless is similar to the recently launched Realme Buds Wireless 2 Neo, but is priced a bit lower. This is a simple wireless headset with few features beyond the basics of Bluetooth connectivity, but promises good sound at a low price. Is this the best affordable wireless headset you can buy right now? Find out in this review.

Dizo is a part of the Realme TechLife ecosystem, and seems to borrow a lot from its parent company when it comes to design, components, and features. The Dizo Wireless looks very similar to the Realme Buds Wireless 2 and is indeed practically identical to the Realme Buds Wireless 2 Neo when it comes to specifications and features.

The headset has a flexible rubber neckband, two modules at either end, and short cables leading to the earpieces. A magnetic power switch lets you turn the Dizo Wireless on and off when you separate the earpieces or snap them together, respectively. The controls for volume and playback and the USB Type-C port for charging are on the right module, while the left one has a simple Dizo logo printed on the outer side. Although the magnetic power switch sounds convenient, the earpieces are prone to separating accidentally when this headset is stored in a bag or purse, which will turn it on and waste power.

Like most neckband earphones, the Dizo Wireless has an in-canal fit, ensuring proper noise isolation. I found it comfortable to wear, although the short cables did occasionally brush against my face while moving around, which was a bit annoying. There are two additional pairs of silicone ear tips of different sizes included in the box, for a customisable fit. You also get a short USB Type-A to Type-C charging cable.

The Dizo Wireless has 11.2mm dynamic drivers, a frequency response range of 20-20,000Hz, Bluetooth 5 for connectivity, and support for only the SBC Bluetooth codec. There’s environmental noise cancellation for better voice pickup on calls. The device is rated IPX4 for water resistance.

This headset works with the Realme Link app, which allows for various customisation options including equaliser mode selection, toggling game mode, and customising the controls. Usefully, you can enable a shortcut to activate the default voice assistant on your smartphone, activate or deactivate the 88ms low-latency mode for gaming, or switch between your two most recently paired devices quickly. It’s worth pointing out here that the Dizo Wireless is only supported on the Realme Link app for Android; the headset could not be detected by the app on iOS at the time of review.

Battery life on the Dizo Wireless is decent enough …….
