Xiaomi introduced the new wireless earbuds called Xiaomi Mi Air 2S TWS. First, please do not confuse them with an air purifier with almost identical name Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier 2S. Secondly, it is more of an updated version of Xiaomi Mi Air 2, but not completely new earbuds, because they have the same design.
However, Xiaomi Mi Air 2S TWS earbuds received an updated dual-core chip as well as low latency. Are these really important updates? Should you buy the new Xiaomi Mi Air 2S earbuds? Let’s find out.
Xiaomi Mi Air 2S Has The Same Design as Mi Air 2
As I mentioned before, Xiaomi Mi Air 2S received the same design of the charging case and earbuds themselves as the previous version of Xiaomi Mi Air 2.
New Features of Xiaomi Mi Air 2S
Let’s start with the major updates of the new Xiaomi Mi Air 2S earbuds. First, they have an updated dual-core chip. Actually, it doesn’t say much for many people.
However, I think you will be interested to learn about the new binaural synchronous transmission technology. It sounds pretty scary, but in simple words, it’s responsible for synchronous sound in the right and left earbuds. If you had any problems with syncing sound between Xiaomi Mi Air 2’s right and left earbuds or any other earphones, there shouldn’t be any in the new version.
Also, the new Xiaomi True Wireless Bluetooth Headset Air 2s (yes, that’s the full name of the new earbuds) has been fully optimized for LHDC Bluetooth decoding for MIUI user interface. It says that the earphones will sound better on Xiaomi smartphones.
By the way, in MIUI settings you can enable low latency function. This is a very useful option when playing games or watching videos. To be honest, I don’t quite understand why it was made a separate option, but not enabled by default. Most likely, when the low latency function is enabled, the battery runs out faster. To save battery life, you should turn off the low latency mode.
Xiaomi Mi Air 2S TWS earbuds 2020 support XiaoAI voice control. You can perform voice commands even while you are listening to music.
Xiaomi Mi Air 2S Has Battery Life Up To 24 hours
And perhaps one of the biggest update of the new Xiaomi wireless earbuds is the battery. The manufacturer claims that Xiaomi Mi Air 2s work for up to 5 hours on a single charge. Using the charging case, you can charge the earbuds and listen to music for up to 24 hours.
If you don’t remember, the previous generation of earbuds Xiaomi Mi Air 2 worked up to 4 hours on one charge and up to 14 hours with a charging case.
In addition, the charging case of new Xiaomi earphones received support for wireless charging Qi.
Price and Buy Xiaomi Mi Air 2S
The price of updated Xiaomi Mi Air 2S earbuds in China is 369 yuan, or about $52. As you can see, the price has not increased compared to the previous generation. That’s very good.
The earbuds will go on sale in China on April 9th, and I think they will be immediately available on Aliexpress and other popular Chinese online stores. I will add links to the best offers later.
