Xiaomi launches new, noise-cancelling Mi Air 2 Pro TWS earbuds
Recently, a product called the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Pro popped up in several leaks, hinting at new Xiaomi TWS earbuds with a slightly more original take on the standard AirPod-clone form-factor. Now, these accessories have finally been launched in China, although they have been rebranded with the name Mi Air 2 Pro for this market.
These earbuds were not expected to have ANC; however, it seems that they do. The OEM asserts that they support a 3-mic hybrid form of this noise reduction to the tune of 35 decibels (dB). They also have decently large 12 millimeter (mm) drivers housed in an exclusively black shell with a new matte finish.
These Mi Air 2 Pros' case gives an estimated 28 hours of playback, although the Bluetooth 5.0 earbuds themselves may only last 7 hours with ANC on. They can charge via USB type C (a standard that might yield 90 minutes' worth of on-time after just 10 minutes' worth of juice) or (as predicted in an earlier leak) wireless charging.
Xiaomi also claims that these new TWS accessories are tuned by awarding-winning musician Luca Bignardi so as to ensure their quality. They have been put up for pre-order on sites such as JD.com, which will resume following an apparently successful October 15, 2020 debut on October 21. The new Mi Air 2 Pro TWS earbuds go for 699 yuan (~US$104) during this event.
