Xiaomi launches Xiaomi Bluetooth Headset Pro with support for Google Assistant and Siri
The popularization of TWS headphones (True Wireless Stereo) made Xiaomi win a large audience with the “cheap” Redmi Airdots – or Xiaomi Airdots -, and the Chinese headset model is one of the best-selling headphones.
With that, Xiaomi hopes to reach an even wider audience with the launch of the new TWS Xiaomi Bluetooth Headset Pro headset.
The model comes with an ergonomic design, with a “handle” that can be fitted around the ear, which guarantees more safety and prevents falls for users who use the accessory while practicing some heavy activity such as running, for example. The rubber finish also offers more comfort when using the wereable.
Another positive point in the new earphone is the possibility to rotate the earpiece part at an angle of 180 °. This way, the user can easily switch the side of the earphone, being able to use only one earphone and choose which ear to use it on.
It also has a dual microphone for noise reduction and is equipped with the Qualcomm QCC3020 chiopset, developed for bluetooth audio devices and is programmable with basic flash, based on the low energy architecture. In addition, it also features a 12mm dynamic speaker.
As for the durability of the battery, it is equipped with 100 mAh on each side, which offers a duration of up to 8 hours on calls. Its charging case has 600 mAh battery, which can extend its durability for up to 40 hours. The charging box of the Xiaomi Bluetooth Headset Pro also has a USB-C connection to ensure fast charging.
But the great highlight of this model is its compatibility with Google’s assistants and Apple’s Siri. This way, users from all over the world can use the accessory to give commands to the phone that is connected to it. In previous models, this was a feature that was limited specifically to the Chinese market, as the accessories were only compatible with XiaoAI Voice Assistant, which is the Chinese virtual assistant.
The Mi Bluetooth Headset Pro is now available for purchase in China, on the official Xiaomi website or by Xiaomi Youpin, for ¥ 199 (~$28). So far there is no information on the launch of this model other places.
It is worth remembering that, recently, Xiaomi launched the AirDots S headset, which brings some improvements over the previous version.
