Xiaomi has announced the company’s first Bluetooth handset dubbed as Mi Sports Bluetooth Headset. As the name suggests, it can be used while performing physical exercising. The company claims it to be water and sweat resistant with a rating of IPx4.
Xiaomi Sports Bluetooth Headset works on Bluetooth 4.1 which enables it to connect the device in just 3 seconds, and it can be connected to two devices simultaneously. It is designed specially to be wrapped around the user’s ear so that it doesn’t fall off while performing physical activities. It weighs around 17.8 grams and powered by an 110mAh battery that company claims can last up to 7 hours of talk-time and 280 hours of standby time. It also supports fast charging and can provide 1 hour of listening with just 10 minutes of charging.
The material used in making of this headset is flexible and soft to make it convenient and comfortable for the user to wear it without any pain even after prolonged uses. It comes with a dynamic speaker and on-ear controls to adjust volume and also features an in-line button to take the calls.
The Mi Sports Bluetooth Headset is available in Black and White colours. It has been priced at 149 Chinese Yuan (Rs 1470) and will go on sale in China starting from 9th November. In an effort to widen its product range, Xiaomi has also announced its air purifier a month ago.
