DIZO will launch the GoPods and GoPods Neo TWS headsets in India this week
DIZO is launching a pair of TWS headsets in India along with a beard trimmer and a hair dryer. These will sold through Flipkart online as well as select physical retail stores.
The we’ve been waiting for the DIZO GoPods for a while (don’t confuse them with the GoPods D). This headset appears to be based on the Realme Buds Air 2 and feature Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) that reduces unwanted sounds by up to 25 dB. A Transparency mode is available, which lets speech go through so you can hear people around you.
The buds feature 10 mm drivers and a diamond-like carbon diaphragm, as well as Bass Boost+. The GoPods are powered by the R2 chip, which supports Bluetooth 5.2 and Game Mode that drops the latency to 88 ms.
Each bud weighs 4.1g, the case is 34.5g. The batteries in the buds plus the 400 mAh battery in the case combined can last up to 25 hours of listening time. Charging is quick, a 10 minute top-up is enough for 2 hours of play time. The buds are IPX5 rated for protection against water and sweat.
The DIZO GoPods will be available from September 6 for INR 3,000 during the first sale on Flipkart, later going up to their MSRP of INR 3,300 (which is how much the Buds Air 2 cost).
The DIZO GoPods Neo (which are based on the Buds Q2) have a different design but a very similar feature set, including ANC with up to 25 dB reduction of noise. They have the 88 ms low-latency Gaming Mode as well.
These do get better battery life, however, with the buds alone lasting up to 7 hours, which is extended to a total of 28 hours with the case. A 10 minute charge is enough for 3 hours of playback.
Physically, the Neo buds weigh 4.5g (they have a bigger battery, 40 mAh vs. 30 mAh), the case is 36g. The buds are IPX5 sweat and water resistant as well.
The DIZO GoPods Neo will be available from September 10. During the first Flipkart sale they will go for INR 2,300, but their regular price is INR 2,500.
The DIZO Beard Trimmer Plus is made long-lasting 420J2 stainless steel and has self-sharpening blades. The trim length can be adjusted from 0.5 mm to 20 mm in 40 half millimeter steps. The trimmer is rated IPX7 so you can take it in the shower. It has an 800 mAh battery for 2 hours of cordless use, after that you can charge it via USB-C using a phone charger.

The DIZO Hair Dryer is rated at 1,400W power and has a high-performance fan that is relatively quiet (relative to hair dryers) at 80 dB. The dryer can blow 50-55ºC air, which goes gentle on your hair, but if you are in a hurry, you can crank it up to 55-60ºC and your hair should be dry in about 5 minutes.
