Realme, which itself began out as a model below the backing of the a lot bigger and extra established Oppo, has come a great distance in India since its launch in 2018. After launching its widespread vary of moderately priced however feature-filled audio merchandise together with the not too long ago introduced Buds Q2 Neo, Realme has now backed a brand new model known as Dizo to compete in the identical phase. Dizo not too long ago introduced its first inexpensive audio merchandise, together with the GoPods D, which I’m reviewing right here.
Priced at Rs. 1,399, the Dizo GoPods D have rather a lot in widespread with the Realme Buds Q2 Neo when it comes to each seems and specs, however are priced only a trace extra affordably. The new earphones may also go up towards competitors from manufacturers akin to Redmi and Noise. Is this now the very best pair of true wi-fi earphones below Rs. 1,500 in India? Find out on this assessment.
App help and low-latency gaming mode on the Dizo GoPods D
Let’s simply get this out of the way in which early on; the Dizo GoPods D look rather a lot just like the Realme Buds Q2 Neo and Buds Q2. That stated, I do like how the earphones look and really feel. Each earpiece has a patterned outer floor that doubles up as a contact management panel. The earpieces do not weigh a lot in any respect. They have a correct in-canal match and are comfy to put on over lengthy durations of time.
The Dizo GoPods D is on the market in two colors – black and white. The contact panels allow you to management playback, set off a voice assistant, and activate the low-latency recreation mode. These controls labored properly for me, primarily due to the massive flat space of every touch-sensitive zone. You cannot management quantity from the earpieces, and might want to try this utilizing your supply system.
The charging case, though easy, is properly designed and sufficiently small to slide into your pocket as wanted. There is only a single discreet Dizo brand on the lid, and there is a Micro-USB port for charging on the again. Even at this worth level, Micro-USB charging on the Dizo GoPods D is disappointing. There isn’t any pairing button – the earphones default to pairing mode after they aren’t linked to any system. There’s a small indicator mild on the entrance, which exhibits the cost standing of the case.
In phrases of specs, the GoPods D are almost an identical to the Buds Q2 Neo, with 10mm dynamic drivers, a frequency response vary of 20-20,000Hz, Micro-USB charging, and IPX4 water resistance. For connectivity, the earphones use Bluetooth 5, with help for simply the SBC Bluetooth codec, which is the one main distinction between the GoPods D and the Buds Q2 Neo – the latter additionally helps the AAC codec.
The gross sales package deal features a charging cable and a complete of three pairs of silicone ear suggestions. There’s no energetic noise cancellation, however there may be environmental noise cancellation to boost the standard of audio picked up by the microphone on calls.
App help for finances true wi-fi earphones continues to be fairly unusual, so the Dizo GoPods D headset does stand out on this regard. Dizo’s affiliation with Realme is put to good use right here, with the earphones working with the superb Realme Link app. For now, this solely works on the Android app, with the iOS app not but up to date to help the Dizo GoPods D on the time of this assessment.
There are only a handful of issues you are able to do utilizing the app, together with seeing the battery ranges for the earpieces (however not the case), choosing one in every of three equaliser presets, controlling the low-latency recreation mode, and customising the contact controls. This is not fairly as in depth as you may get with high-end and feature-filled headphones, however way over I’d sometimes count on from true wi-fi earphones at this worth.
The Dizo GoPods D has respectable battery life for the value and characteristic set, with the earpieces working for round 4 hours per cost. The charging case added three full extra expenses for the earpieces, for a complete battery lifetime of 16 hours per cost cycle. There can be quick charging, with a 10-minute cost providing a claimed two hours of listening on the earpieces.
Sound high quality on the Dizo GoPods D is respectable for the value
While the mid-range and high-end true wi-fi earphones segments see huge adjustments each few months, the finances phase has largely remained constant when it comes to design, options, and audio high quality. There are a number of choices priced round or under Rs. 1,500, however the Dizo GoPods D will go up towards the Redmi 2C true wi-fi earphones, particularly.
There aren’t too many fancy options on the Dizo GoPods D, and the main focus is firmly on design and the listening expertise. Indeed, sound high quality is completely passable and pleasant at this finances level. The sound is, for probably the most half, clear and freed from any vital shortcomings within the frequency vary protection and sonic signature. The sound will swimsuit hottest genres, with affordable bumps within the lows and highs.
Listening to Fire by Ferry Corsten, the Dizo GoPods D had been loud, aggressive, and forceful (in a great way). Although the bass on this observe’s quick, attacking digital beats did are inclined to overpower the remainder of the frequency vary at excessive volumes, most patrons at this finances degree will probably take pleasure in this. The loudness mixed with the noise isolating match will assist overcome most noisy out of doors environments.
Despite the possibly overbearing bass, the sound by no means felt too muddy or disagreeable, and there have been hints of element to be heard each now and then. With If I Were A Folkstar by The Avalanches, the GoPods D had been capable of seize among the element and definition that make this lovely sample-based observe so pleasant, however the soundstage felt a bit slender and restricted.
At very excessive quantity ranges, the sound did really feel a bit tough, however setting the quantity to round 50 p.c made for a fairly participating and clear listening expertise. Perhaps help for higher-quality codecs may need made a distinction right here, permitting a bit extra knowledge for use by the earphones, however the sound is comfy and completely acceptable nonetheless, so long as you may deal with a bit of additional bass.
There are a few helpful extra options on the Dizo GoPods D: ENC for voice calls and a low-latency mode for gaming. Like on the Realme Buds Q2, the low-latency mode did enhance response time ever so barely, however not considerably sufficient to actually make a distinction in lag-sensitive multiplayer video games. Audio high quality on calls was acceptable in indoor and considerably quiet out of doors environments, with the ENC lowering some environmental components akin to wind.
Most inexpensive true wi-fi merchandise focus merely on the shape issue fairly than options, so the Dizo GoPods D stands out for a few key causes, specifically app help, and quick charging. When it involves the fundamentals, the GoPods D is competent and affords a good general expertise for the value. You get a cushty match, good battery life, and acceptable sound high quality. At Rs. 1,399, there’s sufficient on this pair of earphones to make it price contemplating.
Although there are some drawbacks – Micro-USB charging, solely SBC codec help, and a barely overbearing bass assault – it is perhaps price overlooking these simply due to the value, and the truth that you are getting a product backed by Realme. Options from manufacturers akin to Noise and Redmi is perhaps price contemplating as properly, however the Dizo GoPods D provide an excellent general expertise for Rs. 1,399.
