Realme 100W Soundbar with sub-woofer teased by brand

Published

on

Chinese electronics maker Realme recently launched its 100W Soundbar speaker system, priced at Rs 6,999. Called the Realme 100W Soundbar, it is a 2.1 channel audio system with a dedicated wired subwoofer. The Soundbar features a quad-speaker set-up – two full-range speakers and two high-frequency tweeters, each of 15W power output. Its wired subwoofer has a 40W audio driver for low-frequency output.

Realme 100W Soundbar review: Design and Connectivity

Realme Soundbar doesn’t look like a budget product at first glance. There is a metal grill running along the front and a matte finish plastic for the top and back. The sub-woofer has an appealing design and houses a 5.25-inch side-firing driver.

The remote is the only part that feels cheap and flimsy, but at least it’s there. Thanks to HDMI CES, we don’t have to use it all that frequently and can mostly manage well with the TV remote.

Controls are present at the top but LED indicators indicating the ‘Mode’ are positioned behind the front metal grill – which makes them useless. The Soundbar announced the current Mode loudly whenever the bar powers on irrespective of the set volume.

The bar has four 2” 15W speaker units (two full-range speakers & two tweeters) spread across its 940mm length. The Soundbar is reasonably slim yet conceals the IR sensor of the Realme TV when placed in front of it – which is a common peeve point of most Soundbar.

Realme Soundbar has all the required connectivity options. The I/O ports present on the rear include HDMI with ARC (Audio Return Channel), inline RCA, optical and coaxial digital inputs, and 3.5mm analog input. There is also built-in Bluetooth 5.1 that you can pair with multiple devices and a USB port to directly plug a flash drive.

Realme 100W Soundbar review: Setup and operation

Setting up the Realme Soundbar is an extremely simple process. Just plug the bar and play. We connected it using the HDMI ARC port but you may also choose coaxial S/PDIF, stereo RCA or 3.5mm socket.

As stated above, you can switch inputs using the remote control or using the mode button. Play/Pause, power on/off, and volume buttons are also present on the Soundbar itself.

Realme 100W Soundbar review: Sound quality and performance.

Realme has tuned the Soundbar for TV viewing and it works well for the said purpose. Dialogues were clean and clear even when the background score suddenly shot up and the same goes for vocals while listening to music. The Soundbar works better than the built-in TV speakers for watching action movies and sitcoms and the experience was quite immersive.

The base has a nice punch to it. Don’t expect audiophile-grade music, though. The mids and high feel a bit recessed. The sound stage is not very wide and channel separation doesn’t feel very accurate. Music mode works better for listening to music, but you can switch audio modes only using the remote control. Latency is high over Bluetooth and the volume control feels a tad erratic.

In spite of these issues, we’d say the audio output is good for the price. This is obviously a product that’s targeted at quotidian consumers who are not very fastidious about audio and such consumers are likely to enjoy the boost it provides over their ho-hum TV speakers.

Realme 100W Soundbar review – Should you buy it?

If you are looking for an affordable Soundbar to replace your inadequate TV speakers, Realme Soundbar is an option worth considering. It looks premium, has all the required connectivity options, and has been tuned for TV viewing.

If you are thinking of Soundbar that doubles as a multipurpose music system for your home, one that you can pair with multiple gadgets, perhaps you should look for more expensive options that are better suited for the purpose.

Best economic mobile phones for January 2021

Nowadays mobile phones are used for several purposes. Some of them are important and some of them for time pass.

What are the main use of mobile phones?

  1. Make calls
  2. Send Messages
  3. Surf Websites
  4. Capture your best moments
  5. Enter into online and offline applications.

To fulfill this, and average person only need a phone with price around 10,000 RS. Selecting a phone with maximum features is a himalayan task for few. Here are my list of budget phones for the month of January 2021.

5. Realme C15 3GB 32 GB

Realme C15 only have 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory. You might be wondering why this phone entered into my top 5 budget phone list for the new decade.

Following are key elements making the Realme C15 in my favorite list.

  • 6.52 inch HD Display
  • 13MP AI Quad Camera
  • 6000 mAh battery

Realme C15 can be preferred for those who are looking for a good photography experience and huge battery backup.

4. Redmi 9 Prime 4GB 64GB

Redmi 9 Prime outperformed Realme C15 with its 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.

Other few features are

  • A descent 5020 mAh battery
  • 6.53 full HD Display
  • AI Quad Camera

3. Oppo A5 2020 3GB 64GB

Oppo A5 beaten Redmi 9 Prime with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 Octa core processor. I personally like Qualcomm processors over MediaTek.

Key other features include

  • 64 GB internal memory
  • Snapdragon 665 Octa Core Processor
  • 5000 mAh battery

2. Samsung Galaxy M11 3GB 32 GB

Even though the Galaxy M11 comes with 3GB RAM 32GB internal memory, the position of the selfi Camera given rank 2 in my list. Most of the under 10K range Smartphones comes with water drop Camera. Hence the punch hole Camera in the Galaxy M11 making it favorable for many. Moreover Samsung has more brand value than the other phones in the list. At least from my point for view. There is no need for an argument at this time.

Here are some of the other key features

  • Expandable memory support upto 512GB
  • Qualcomm octa core processor
  • 5000 mAh battery

1. Redmi 9 4GB 128 GB

While seeing the heading itself you might have noticed the heavy internal memory. Getting a Smartphone with 128GB under 10K is the only reason making Redmi 9 in the top of my list. 4GB RAM and 128GB internal memory gives enough room  for us store and capture whatever we wants.

Other Key features are

  • 5000 mAh battery
  • 6.53 HD display

Note: I have checked our main online ecommerce websites prior to writing this article. There might be small variations in the price when you check the price online. Sellers keep changing in Flipkart and Amazon. I’m sure that these phones can be purchased within 10000RS. If you see the price above 10000RS, please visit the site on a later point so that the seller with less price shows again.
