Apart from the Mi Mix 2 smartphone, Xiaomi also launched its USB Type-C based earphones for the Indian market. These in-ear wired earphones have been specifically launched keeping the Mi Mix 2 in mind because the smartphone lacks a 3.5mm headphone port. Although the company bundles a USB Type-C to 3.5mm audio dongle with its latest flagship smartphone, some people would prefer earphones that have a USB Type-C connector to avoid #DongleLife.

Xiaomi Mi Noise Cancelling USB Type-C Earphones: Features

The Mi Noise Cancelling USB Type-C earphones, as the name suggests, has a USB Type-C connector and active noise cancellation. Since it is USB Type-C based, it can draw power from the connected device and run its active noise cancelling (ANC) algorithms through its micro-electromechanical microphone to block environmental noise. Xiaomi claims that its earphones can suppress unwanted noise by up to 25 decibels. The digital noise control box on the earphones also contain an in-line microphone so that you can take and answer calls.

The earphones have a frequency response of 50Hz – 20,000Hz and has received certification to playback Hi-Res music. The earbuds tips are soft and feel comfortable to wear and the company has used high-quality elastic braided cables to save the earphones from sudden jerks or twines. The titanium metal plating on the earphones makes sure that it is resistant to corrosion, scratches and scuffs. The earphones are compatible with most Xiaomi smartphones that have USB Type-C port: Mi Mix 2, Mi Mix, Mi 6, Mi 5, Mi 5s, Mi 5s Plus, and Mi Note 2. It is not compatible with Redmi 5X and Redmi Pro, though.

The Mi Noise Cancelling USB Type-C are part-compatible with the Redmi 4C and the Redmi 4S, and in that case, you can listen to music and the active noise cancellation feature will work, but you can’t take calls or control music using the in-line remote. A weird issue, isn’t it? Well, that’s how messed up the USB Type-C situation is right now.

  1. Thanks for your review. You must be also aware Mi A1 phone comes with some notable audio features such as a dedicated headphone amplifier with support for electrical resistance up to 600Ω. For its speakers, the Mi A1 also features a 10V power amplifier which is said to push deeper lows and higher volume. DHS Audio calibration, standalone audio amplifier. The Mi A1 is also equipped with DHS Audio Calibration Algorithm for an enhanced audio experience on headphones and speakers. So I reckon it this headphones may enhance sound quality. Sound experience with Poweramp installed in Mi A1 phone is exceptionally well. However I wish I configure headphone keys, I mean switching tracks back and forth.
