Xiaomi organised an online-only event today in India, where the brand launched its flagship Xiaomi Mi 10 smartphone. The latest flagship comes flaunting 108MP quad cameras, Snapdragon 865 SoC, curved 90Hz display and more as its key highlights. At the same event, the company also launched a host of other products like the Xiaomi Mi Box 4K and Mi True Wireless Earphones 2.
The Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphone 2 will take on the likes of Realme Buds Air true wireless earphones in India. The earphones flaunt superior sound quality, punchy bass, environmental noise cancellation, and in-ear detection as its highlights. Here’s what you need to know about the latest product from Xiaomi.
Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 specifications and features
The Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 come with 14.2mm dynamic drivers, which happen to be the largest in the true wireless earphones category in India. Xiaomi has also announced that the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 are specially tuned for India. The earphones also flaunt in-ear detection through an infrared sensor, which detects when the earphones are out of the ear and pauses the playback. This feature works across mobile and desktop operating systems.
The earphones flaunt Low Latency High Definition Audio Codec (LHDC), which ensures that there’s no delay between the transmission and output without compromising on the audio quality. The newly launched Xiaomi Mi 10 flagship comes with support for LHDC. The brand claims that the TWS earphones are capable of delivering enhanced call quality by suppressing ambient nose up to 90 percent. For this, the earphones use two mics, one on the top picking up the surrounding noise and the one at the bottom for using an algorithm to cancel the noise.
The Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 come with a matte-finish charging case with an LED charging indicator. Both earbuds weigh just 9g each, and 50g when stored in the case. The earbuds feature a 30mAh battery each, and the charging case features a 250mAh battery. Xiaomi claims that the earbuds provide up to 14 hours of battery life using the case, and up to 4 hours on a single charge. The charging case comes with USB Type-C port and supports quick charging.
The Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 provide seamless connectivity, with MIUI and will show you the remaining charge of both the case and earbuds on the connected MIUI device. This feature is also available on Apple’s AirPods with iOS. Apart from that, the TWS earbuds are cross-compatible with both Android and iOS. The controls require a double tap on the right earbud to play/pause, answer a call by double-tapping on any earbud, and invoking voice assistant by double-tapping on the left earbud. The Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 support Google Assistant, Siri, and Alexa (the last on supported phones like Redmi Note 8 Pro).
