Chinese Smartphone maker Xiaomi has launched its latest Mi headphones and in-ear headphones in India at Rs 5,499 and Rs 999, respectively. The two devices will be available on Xiaomi India’s official website from July 23 from 10 a.m.
The Mi Headphones boasts a 50mm diaphragm that is touted to be four times harder than steel and 60% lighter than titanium alloy. According to Xiaomi, the headphones have better bass courtesy a 25% larger acoustic membrane as compared to other headphones. The membrane is 2 microns thick. Additionally the headphone has a semi-open design to reduce distortion and improve fidelity. It also features a dual damping system to absorb internally reflected sound waves.
The headphones weigh 220 gms and come with aluminum grilles in the gold finish along with a black band. It features PU ear cushions filled with foam.
The headphones are equipped with built-in Knowles MEMS microphone for calls and is supported by a silver plated copper wire that runs right through the headphone for better signal transmission. The independent stereo channels are separated from the main microphone line thus ensuring purity of sound and minimizing interference.
The cables are reinforced with Kevlar fibers, and it reduces tangles, resists breaks and enhances durability. The remote is also compatible with most Android and iOS 5 based devices. The headphones come with three replaceable on-ear and over-ear cushion kits –
- On-ear foam cushion
- On-ear soft cushion
- Over-ear soft cushion
The metal diaphragm in the Xiaomi Mi In-ear headphones has a sandwich design that preserves the treble responses of metal and simultaneously enhances the richness in lower ranges due to PET.
3rd gen balanced damping improves airflow to give proportioned outflows for the front and the back chamber and rendering better performance and balanced sound. It also features separate output channel and output whole in the front cavity for better balance and treble performance.
