Xiaomi Mi AirDots 2 SE With Up to 5-Hour Battery Life
Xiaomi announced its genuinely wireless earbuds last week, beginning for Rs 4,500 while Oppo announced its Enco W31 at Rs 3,999. And that’s not all as more of them are heading our way. The recent one in the group is the Mi AirDots 2 SE, which has just been announced in China.
They are available for pre-order in China, and shipments will start on May 19. At CNY 170 ($24/€22), they are less than half the price of the AirDots 2s.
The Mi AirDots 2 SE is a more affordable version of the Mi AirDots 2. You can get it at a price of Yuan 169 (approximately Rs 1,800) and currently get only in a White colour variant.
While the earbuds are much more affordable than the recently announced Mi True Wireless Earphones 2, the specifications sheet implies it is almost on par when it comes to features.
Similar to the ones launched in India, the SE features 14.2mm drivers and brings a dual-microphone system for noise removal. The earbuds rely on Bluetooth 5.0 for connection.
If you were wondering, the AirDots 2 SE also highlights touch-based controllers wherein users can control both music playback and volume levels utilizing touch gestures.
The Xiaomi Mi AirDots 2 SE has touch switches as well as wear detection, which will automatically pause your music when you take them off and then resume it once you put them back in.
Each bud weighs just 4.7g and is valid for 5 hours of listening. The 48g case adds 20 hours more to the battery life, and it can be charged in 1.5 hours using the attached USB-C cable. Wireless charging is not supported; however, another cutback.
The first variation is that the SE does not support the high definition codec LHDC, but they do offer AAC. Bluetooth 5.0 is used for the connection to your phone; the signal is transmitted together to each bud [which provides a more stable connection].
The AirDots 2 SE is currently limited to the Chinese market only, but Xiaomi just stated the standard model in India. Priced at Rs 4,500, the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 is not the cheapest, but Xiaomi ensures good audio quality, related 20 hours of battery life, and touch gestures.
