Redmi launches its SonicBass Wireless Earphones in Nepal
Xiaomi's sub-brand Redmi has become known as a purveyor of true wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds at decent prices. However, those in search of an even better deal can also still avail themselves of recent launches from this company with a little more wire. The new SonicBass Wireless Earphones are an example of this category.
They comprise a device with a "neckband" form-factor, which means there are indeed wires running from their earbuds to their dual cylindrical battery casings. They have been launched in Nepal, an emerging market for Redmi, today (September 8, 2020) and will go on sale for 2099 Nepalese rupees (NPR; ~US$17.68) in 2 days.
Given their budget nature, Redmi has equipped the SonicBass Wireless Earphones with their batteries, a Bluetooth SoC that supports voice-controls and not much else. They exchange active noise-cancelling (ANC) for an "environmental" counterpart that is apparently mainly based on the seal created by their ear-tips.
Despite this, Redmi asserts that they are rated for "superior sound with pro bassSkullcandy releases the Crusher Evo headphones, the latest in its line to feature Haptic Bass". They may also last for up to 12 hours between charges. These new wireless earphones will be sold in "dynamic" blue or black shades on their release into their new market.
