Xiaomi has released another pair of cheap TWS earbuds. Following on from the Mi Air 2S, on which we reported last month, the AirDots 2 SE retail for just CNY 169 (~US$23.80).
Featuring 14.2 mm drivers and touch controls, the AirDots 2 SE weigh a combined 9.4 g, with their charging case tipping the scales at 48 g. Xiaomi has also included dual microphones for noise cancellation and voice controls, along with IR sensors for detecting when you remove the earbuds from your ears.
Compatible with Android and iOS devices, Xiaomi promises up to five hours of standalone playback and twenty hours with the included charging case. According to GSMArena the AirDots SE 2 support the AAC and SBC codecs. However, Fonearena reports that the earbuds support LHDC, too. Regardless, the AirDots 2 SE utilises Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.
The Mi AirDots 2 SE will be available on general sale from May 19 at 10:00 China Standard Time (CST). The earbuds can be ordered on Mi.com now, but there is no word on international availability.
