Smartphone brands entering the accessories space is not a new thing, and many such as Xiaomi, Oppo, OnePlus, Samsung, and Apple have established product ranges in the true wireless audio segment. The latest to give it a shot is Poco, which operates in India as a sub-brand of Xiaomi, and has been a noteworthy player in the mid-range smartphone segment. The company's first audio product is firmly an entry-level offering.
The Poco Pods is a budget true wireless headset, and the first from the Poco brand in India. Although quite basic, the earphones are affordably priced and decent on the whole. The sound isn't too detailed thanks to support for only the SBC Bluetooth codec, but the sound quality is decent with certain genres and tracks. There is ENC, and call quality and battery life are good as well. Although not particularly feature-filled, the Poco Pods are straightforward and worth considering for the price.
