Find out in our full review:
Redmi Buds 3 Lite: design, construction and battery
The Redmi Buds 3 Lite has already arrived, showing what it came to by bringing a super compact charger base with an excellent matte finish.
This flatter design allows you to carry the earphone in your pockets, or in armbands, without it attracting attention, and the matte finish ensures less scratches and fingerprints on the surface.
In addition, the base still has a USB Type-C port for faster charging.
And just like the base, the Redmi Buds 3 Lite earphones are also super compact.
They have a “bean” design and have a finish that mixes matte and gloss, which creates comfortable, resistant and very elegant earphones.
And despite being small, the Redmi Buds 3 Lite achieves a great autonomy of 5 hours of continuous playback with the volume at 50%.
It also features a support strap to ensure safety for those who like to play sports, and it even has an ear canal construction to ensure bass gain.
And as a bonus, it has IPX4 protection against sweat, dust and water splashes.
Redmi Buds 3 Lite: how to pair with smartphone?
To pair the Redmi Buds 3 Lite, just remove the two sides from the base and they will connect to each other and then they will be available in the Bluetooth list. And then just confirm the connection.
Redmi Buds 3 Lite: Functions
Unfortunately, like most Bluetooth earphones, the Redmi Buds 3 Lite does not have the volume up and down functions. But that was already expected for being a very cheap earphone.
Apart from that, it has all the functions we need, including a gamer mode!
– 2 taps: skip music
– 3 taps: virtual assistant
– press 1.5 seconds right + left: gamer mode
Functions during call:
– 2 taps: answer
– 3 taps: end
Redmi Buds 3 Lite: fixation
And we opened our tests with a surprising result in terms of fixation.
Despite being more prominent, the Redmi Buds 3 Lite proved to be very comfortable and remained well fixed even during the most sudden movements.
This proves that the support strap fulfills its role and really ensures that this earphone can be used while playing sports.
Redmi Buds 3 Lite: Audio Test, Mic Test and Delay Test
And the time has come to find out if the Redmi Buds 3 Lite really delivers quality at a fair price!
During our sound quality test, this little Bluetooth earphone delivered an excellent level of volume, well-defined tones and super powerful bass.
Honestly, we didn’t expect such loud volume and bass as powerful as the ones we found, but it was a pleasant surprise.
Oh, and even though the volume is so loud and the bass is so powerful, they don’t pop at any time, which is very important!
And we put the Redmi Buds 3 Lite’s Bluetooth 5.2 to the test in our famous delay test.
In this test, we ran FPS games on an entry-level smartphone to find out if the earphone is capable of delivering synchronized audio. And surprisingly, it was!
Even during shooting sequences, Redmi Buds 3 Lite delivered zero delay in FPS games.
And to top it off, we tested the Redmi Buds 3 Lite’s microphones to find out if they offer good conversational quality.
And the result was audio with an excellent volume level, little muffling and rare hiss.
That is, despite not being a perfect microphone, it is good enough to be used in calls, online matches or even during video classes.
Redmi Buds 3 Lite: is it worth it?
Yes, this is excellent value for money!
The Redmi Buds 3 Lite has a quality construction, especially considering its price, and even comes with a support strap.
Plus, it delivers a sound quality that many competitors envy, and even brings good microphones for those who need to make more informal calls.
Last but not least, it managed to deliver perfectly synced audio during FPS games on an entry-level smartphone, which took us by surprise!
