Realme Dizo Dizo GoPods D True Wireless Earphones: The Dizo GoPods D is compatible with the Realme Link App and can be operated using touch controls.
Realme, which was launched in India in 2018 as a brand with the support of Oppo (a much larger and more established company), has seen a lot of success in India.
Realme, which launched its popular Buds Q2 Neo range of affordable but quality-packed audio products in 2018, has now backed Dizo, a new brand to enter the same market. Dizo just announced its first affordable audio products including the GoPods D which I am reviewing here.
The Dizo GoPods D is priced at Rs. The Dizo GoPods D is priced at Rs. These earphones will be up against competitors from Redmi and Noise. Are these the best true wireless earphones available under Rs. 1,500 in India This review will help you find out.
Dizo GoPods D supports app support and low latency gaming modes
The Dizo GoPods D is very similar to the Realme Buds Q2 Neo, and Buds Q2. I like the way these earphones feel and look. The outer surface of each earpiece doubles as a touch control panel. They are lightweight. They are well-fitted in the canal and comfortable for long periods of wear.
Two colors are available for the Dizo GoPods D: black and white. You can control playback, activate the low-latency mode, and trigger a voice assistant using the touch panels. I found these controls to be intuitive and easy to use, due to the large area of each touch-sensitive region. Volume can’t be controlled from the earpieces.
You will have to use your source device. Although the charging case is simple in design, it’s small enough to fit into your pocket. The charging case has a discreet Dizo logo on the lid. There’s also a Micro-USB port on the back for charging. The Dizo GoPods D’s Micro-USB charging is not worth the price.
The pairing button is absent. When the headphones aren’t connected, they default to pairing mode. The case’s charge status is indicated by a small indicator light on the front.
The specifications of the GoPods D closely match those of the Buds Q2 Neo. They have 10mm dynamic drivers and a frequency response of 20 to 20,000Hz. Micro-USB charging is also available. IPX4 water resistance is included. Bluetooth 5 is used for connectivity. The earphones support only the SBC Bluetooth codec. This is the only difference between the GoPods D & the Buds Q2 Neo. However, the latter supports the AAC codec.
The package also includes a charging cable as well as three pairs of silicone tips. The product does not have active noise cancellation. However, it has environmental noise cancellation that can be used to improve the quality of calls made by the microphone.
It is rare to find an app that supports true wireless headphones for under $100. The Dizo GoPods D headset stands out in this respect. Dizo’s association with Realme is well utilized here. The earphones work with the fantastic Realme Link app. This only works with the Android app. The iOS app has not been updated to support Dizo GoPods D as of the time this review was written.
The app allows you to do a few things, such as checking the battery level of the earpieces (but the case), choosing one of the three equalizers presets, customizing the touch controls, and controlling the low latency game mode.
Although this isn’t as comprehensive as high-end, feature-packed headphones, it’s still a lot more than what I would expect from wireless earphones at this price.
Dizo GoPods D’s battery life is decent for its price and features. The earpieces can run for approximately four hours on a single charge. For a total of 16 hours, the charging case included three additional full charges for the earpieces. Fast charging is available, offering up to two hours of listening time on the earpieces with a 10-minute charge.
The Dizo GoPods D have decent sound quality for their price
The mid-range and top-end true wireless earphones segment see significant changes every few months. However, the budget segment has generally remained stable in terms of design, features, and audio quality. There are many options available at prices below Rs. 1,500, however, the Dizo GoPods D will be up against the Redmi 2C true Wireless earphones in particular.
The Dizo GoPods D doesn’t have many extras, so the emphasis is on design and listening experience. The sound quality is excellent and very enjoyable for the price. The sound quality is excellent, with minimal flaws in frequency coverage or sonic signature. With moderate bumps in the highs and lows, this sound will work well with most popular music genres.
The Dizo GoPods D were loud and aggressive (in a positive way) when I listened to Fire by Ferry Corsten. The track’s aggressive, fast-paced electronic beats overpowered the rest of the frequency spectrum at high volumes. However, this will be a popular choice for most buyers. This track’s loudness and noise-isolating fit will make it suitable for outdoor environments.
The sound was not too loud or muddy, despite the bass being a bit heavy. There were still hints of detail that could be heard from time to time. The GoPods D captured some of The Avalanches’ beautiful sample-based track If I Were A Folkstar, but the soundstage was a little narrow.
The sound was a little rough at high volumes. However, lowering the volume to about 50 percent gave you a more engaging and clear listening experience. The earphones could have used a little more data, but it is still quite comfortable and acceptable.
The Dizo GoPods D has a few useful extra features: ENC for voice calls, and a low latency mode for gaming. The low-latency mode, similar to the Realme Buds Q2, did not make any significant difference in response time for lag-sensitive multiplayer gaming. The ENC reduced some environmental factors like the wind to make calls sound acceptable, and audio quality was acceptable indoors and outdoors.
The form factor of most true wireless products is more important than the features. So the Dizo GoPods D has a few key advantages, including app support and fast charging.
The GoPods D offers a good overall experience and is capable of handling basic tasks. The GoPods D offers a good fit, good battery life, and acceptable sound quality. The price is Rs. This pair of earphones is worth the price of Rs.
There are some downsides, such as Micro-USB charging and SBC codec support. However, these might be overlooked if you consider the fact that the product is backed by Realme. While there are other brands like Noise or Redmi that might be worth looking at, the Dizo GoPods D offers a great overall experience for Rs. 1,399.
