As more and more smartphones cancel the 3.5mm headphone jack, a good wireless earphone becomes extremely important. At the same time, there are not many earphones truly supporting noise reduction. Though Xiaomi has managed to launch a number of wireless headset products before, users have been waiting for a genuine high-end flagship product for a couple of years. Today, Xiaomi made up for lost time, officially launching the Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro. It costs 799 yuan ($124). Our protagonist will go on pre-sale tomorrow on May 14 and will be available on May 21 through all channels.
Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro Key Features
The FlipBuds Pro adopts a ceramic-like design. The whole body adopts curved lines, which is visually moist and jade-like.
In fact, we are talking about true high-end headphones. The FlipBuds Pro supports 40dB active noise reduction, which is the highest specification of noise reduction wireless headphones. It can effectively isolate the noise in the environment.
As a reference, the Air 2 Pro noise-canceling headphones launched by Xiaomi before support 35dB hybrid noise reduction. The FlipBuds Pro is obviously better than the Air 2 Pro. We can say that the Xiaomi Noise Cancelling Headphone Pro is a pioneer product designed for the high-end market.
In terms of sound quality, the Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro uses an 11mm super linear dynamic coil and a composite diaphragm design. The diaphragm dome area of this moving coil unit is large without embossing. The coil of the loudspeaker does not use a coil with a circular cross-section, but a flat wire. This method can be seen in some audio speakers, which helps to improve the energy conversion efficiency and reduce the weight of the coil.
Also, this product supports Qualcomm’s aptx Bluetooth connection, which can bring lower delay effects and a better sound quality experience.
At the same time, according to the screenshots revealed before, the FlipBuds Pro has three modes for noise reduction. There are three levels of high, middle and low, which are suitable for office, daily, and aviation scenarios. The Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro also supports the well-received transparent mode of the AirPods Pro to avoid complete isolation from the surrounding environment.
In addition, the company said that the FlipBuds Pro also supports dual-device intelligent connection. So it can be easily paired with smartphones and notebooks, and can be switched at will, making the experience more intelligent.
The Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro also supports earplug fit detection. The headset also supports the selection of different codecs, including AAC and SBC.
