About a month ago, OPPO launched the new Enco W11 in Nepal, which is a decent wireless earphone under Rs. 4000. And today, Xiaomi Nepal has launched a pair of new budget earbuds in the country dubbed the “Redmi Earbuds S” at a budget-friendly price.
Redmi Earbuds S Overview
The new Redmi Earbuds isn’t a new product in itself. It’s just a rebranded Redmi AirDots S, that was launched about a few months ago in China. Given the price, it will go head to head to with the OPPO Enco W11.
Design and Display
Redmi EarBuds S looks quite similar to last year’s Redmi AirDots. It is small, compact, and goes right into your ears. You don’t get any stem hanging outside of your ear. There’s one color option – Black. Both Earbuds S and Realme Buds Air Neo are light at 4.1 grams per earbud.
Driver and Connectivity
Redmi Earbuds S features a 7.2 mm sound driver with DS intelligent technology for ambient noise cancellation. It is based on Bluetooth 5.0 technology and can connect to the device within the 10-meter radius. Xiaomi claims that the chip allows up to 2x data transfer compared to its Redmi Airdots.
Redmi has included a mono mode which wasn’t there in the original Airdots. With this, you can connect to a single earbud at a time. The company has also made switching between mono and stereo mode smooth and hassle-free.
It has a low latency mode for gamers, that can be activated with a double click. Upon activation, it will limit the latency to 122ms by reducing transmission and with better sync between audio and video.
Battery and Durability
Each earbud equips a 43mAh battery. On a single charge, the earbud will last up to 4 hours which can be extended to 12 hours using the charging case. The charging case has a capacity of 300mAh and can be charged using a micro-USB port. It also has an IPX4 rating against splash damage.
