Mark Your Calendars: Poco Pods Earbuds Available on July 29 at Introductory Price of Rs 1,199 (MRP: Rs 2,999)

Poco, renowned for its range of budget-friendly smartphones under Rs 20,000, has now introduced its first true wireless ear buds, named Poco Pods, catering to budget-focused customers in India. The ear buds will be available for purchase on Flip kart starting July 29 at an introductory price of Rs 1,199, with an MRP of Rs 2,999. Poco F4 users, whose smartphones lack an audio jack, will find these new ear buds particularly useful.

Ahead of the official launch, Poco Pods’ official Flipkart page has already gone live, revealing its design in the distinctive black and yellow colors associated with the company. The ear buds feature a long stem and silicone ear buds, taking inspiration from the design of Apple Air Pods Pro. The charging case, shaped like an egg, prominently displays the Poco branding in yellow on the front.

Poco has unveiled its latest true wireless ear buds, the Poco Pods, targeting budget-conscious users in India. While designed primarily for Android smartphones with support for the standard SBC Bluetooth codec, iPhone users can also enjoy connectivity via Bluetooth. The ear buds boast a remarkable 30 hours of music playback with the charging case and offer a wireless range of 10 meters from the source. However, it remains unclear whether the case includes a USB-C port or a micro USB port for charging, which takes approximately 1.5 hours.

Poco emphasizes the ear buds’ sweat-proof design and promises “deep bass” sound quality. The built-in microphones enable seamless call handling. To maintain an attractive price point, the Poco Pods are relatively no-frills, lacking features like active noise cancellation and transparency mode, which have become common in earbuds under Rs 5,000. Nevertheless, due to their in-ear design, users can expect a certain degree of noise cancellation.

Interestingly, Poco had hinted at the development of its first wireless ear buds back in 2020. The product’s name, “Poco Pop Buds,” was decided through a poll conducted by the former Poco India general manager C Manmohan on Twitter in May 2020. However, the launch faced delays due to testing issues. Now, after three years since its initial tease, the Poco Pods are finally hitting the market. Depending on the response to the launch, Poco might consider releasing more feature-rich true wireless ear buds in the future. More details about the Poco Pods ear buds will be revealed after the official launch tomorrow.
