The wireless earbuds will be available for purchase via Detel’s website, mobile app. It can also be purchased from Flipkart, Amazon India and Paytm Mall. The company is joining a crowded market of truly wireless earbuds, which has gained popularity among consumers.
The Detel Di-Pod truly wireless earbuds come equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 and has a connectivity range of up to 10 meters. The earbuds are backed by 300mAh battery and it takes up to one to two hours for full charge. Once fully charged, the earbuds are capable of providing playback time of up to five hours.

“Having seen the increased demand of wireless accessories in the Indian Market, Detel has also geared up to launch its first Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds- Di-Pod,” said Yogesh Bhatia the founder & CEO. “These earbuds provide best in class music with all-day comfort design, which will allow the user to use them for a long period of time. We are looking forward to launching more of such pocket-friendly products and will keep connecting the unconnected 40 crore Indians.”
Detel Di-Pods, like other truly wireless earbuds, draws inspiration from Apple AirPods. It is lightweight and ultraportable that can be used for calls as well as listening to music. The earbuds have a design that should provide decent isolation from external sound. However, it lacks active noise cancellation. It uses a microUSB port for charging, which is a bummer in the age of USB Type-C port. At Rs 2,199, the Detel Di-Pods seem to be a good alternative to wireless earbuds available in the market.
