Even the charging case remains homogenous to the Apple’s
Xiaomi has finally released a new pair of Bluetooth earbuds, known as Mi AirDots Pro, which is an update to the previously released AirDots.
The new Xiaomi AirDots Pro mimics Apple’s AirPods which were launched back in December 2016 and is available at almost half a price than the former. It is water resistant, feature touch controls, supports Bluetooth receiver and a beamforming microphone.
Xiaomi AirDots Pro comes with touch sensors for controlling music, making calls and activating voice assistants while the wireless earbuds are compatible with both iOS and Android devices. You can use only one of the earbuds in AirDots pro if you want to, and Xiaomi boasts that it can run for up to 10 hours in a single charge. The Xiaomi AirDots take less than an hour to charge fully.
The Mi AirDots Pro, much like Apple’s AirPods, come with a similar case which charges the earbuds once they are placed inside. The case itself can also be charged through a USB Type-C charger. The Xiaomi wireless earbuds weigh only 5.8 grams, allocates a Bluetooth v4.2 support, supports AAC Codec for enhanced audio and offer IPX4 water resistance.
Xiaomi earpods feature a 7mm neodymium iron boron magnetic and titanium-plated diaphragm dynamic ring speaker unit, paired with ANC(Active Noise Cancellation) feature to ameliorate sound and call quality. The earbuds also disconnect automatically when taken off the ear and remain on standby for 30 minutes.
The company will start selling Mi AirDots Pro locally from January 11th with a price tag of Yuan 399($60) which is significantly cheaper than Apple’s $159 AirPods, with same feature and similar design.
