The Xiaomi Wireless Music Sport Earbuds are offered in two colors ‘Black’ and ‘White’. We have the ‘Black’ color variant with us. The frame of the earbuds is made out of metal with anodised aluminium coating on top. The bottom part of the earbuds is made out of good quality plastic and houses the battery and other internals. Xiaomi has used quality materials here, even the cables are also of good quality.
The earbuds come with an ear hook design and IPX4 rating making it ideal for outdoor activity. The IPX4 rating gives the earbuds protection against sweat and light water splashes. Xiaomi has gone with anti-oil materials for the earbuds making then easier to clean and maintain.
On the back of the right earbuds you would find the controls to change tracks and increase or decrease the volume. The buttons are a little tight and demand getting used to. There is also a separate microphone with a button for taking calls.
There is a micro USB connector on the earbud for charging the 100mAh battery underneath, which gives around 6hrs of music playback.
Xiaomi Wireless Music Sport Earbuds use the Bluetooth 4.1 connections for faster pairing process which is a norm among wireless earbuds at this price. The earbuds churn out good audio considering the price. Xiaomi has gone with metal composite diaphragm design which gives a little boost to the sound and cuts down on unnecessary distortion. The mids are good and so does the bass.
Thanks to the ear hook design, these earbuds stay in the ear very comfortably during aggressive workout sessions and the IPX4 rating is cherry on top. The Xiaomi Wireless Music Sport Earbuds can be paired with two devices at a time, meaning you can pair it with your smartwatch and smartphone at the same time, if you are that sort of a user. The external microphone provides excellent call quality, due to the MEMS microphones used here.
Talking about the battery, the earbuds come with a 100mAh battery which gives a 6 hrs backup and a whooping 7 days of standby time. With moderate usage the earbuds can easily last 3-4 days on a single charge and top up times are also less.
