Today, a new, interesting product has appeared on the Xiaomi platform. Until now, the Chinese giant did not offer a product similar to Airpods from Apple. All wireless headphones in the Xiaomi offer were either large and cushioned or had a short cord connecting both ends. This solution is not comfortable. People mocked the product from Apple, but I do not know anyone who bought it and was disappointed with Airpods. In my opinion, this is the best Apple product of recent years, now Xiaomi has shown its model.
Xiaomi presents its headphones in the style of Apple Airpods
The new wireless headphones were created by Xiaomi, without the involvement of other companies. They weigh only 4.5 gram. They are IPX4 certified, you can practice them without fear that the pot will damage the electronics. They are available in two colors - black or white.
They have only one button that is used to stop, resume or rewind a song. The headphones are equipped with a microphone so you can also pick up or reject calls using the button or run the voice assistant Xiaomi, the equivalent of Applow Siri.
The headphones connect to the smartphone via Bluetooth in the 4.1 version. They contain a battery with the 40 mAh capacity, which is charged in a special docking station. The station contains a magnet holding the headphones. It is a pity that the cable is not removable, but fixed permanently. Magnetic contacts for charging are visible from the inside of the headphones.
Battery life is 180 minutes. This result was obtained during laboratory tests, the volume during testing was set to 100% power. The charging time is 60 minutes.
In the set, along with the headphones, we will get 3 sizes of silicon overlays to match each ear. The headphones have several sound signals depending on the action: switching on, switching off, pairing, low battery, etc.
Xiaomi wireless headphones have been priced at 79 yuan, $ 11.5. Do not demand from them that they will compete with Airpods, but for the price? I can not wait for them to appear in stores offering to Europeans. Only the question how many margins the stores will wish ...
A brief reflection at the end took me by
During the correction of the text I realized one thing is it one or two headphones? In each picture you can see only one ear, only one is visible in the docking station. I have found out what the set contains and the Chinese word is translated as "headphones" x1, not the x1 handset. If there were two of these silicon overlays, it would be six, not three, so there is one. A bit of a spell is broken.
Xiaomi informs that you can pair two to one device, but will it be stereo then?
