In addition to announcing the Xiaomi 12 and Watch S1 watches, Xiaomi presents its Buds T3 Pro headphones. They promise surround sound.
The Xiaomi 12 and Watch S1 connected watches were not the only protagonists of the last manufacturer’s conference. During its 1-hour event, Xiaomi talked about the international launch of the Buds 3T Pro. These in-ear headphones feature 10mm dual-magnet dynamic drivers. They don’t really create a surprise on the design side by positioning themselves between the AirPods 2 and AirPods Pro; two of the benchmarks in the sector.
The brand adds an ANC processor to its Buds 3T Pro to offer hybrid noise reduction of up to 40 dB. “With the “Light” mode, the user can enjoy a moment of relaxation in a park, while the “Balanced” mode allows, for example, walking in an office, and the “Deep” mode is ideal for noisy subway trips. or plane. ”Xiaomi explains. In adaptive mode, the ambient noise level is detected to provide the most appropriate option based on the environment. A “Transparency” mode is also present.
Hybrid noise reduction and 360° sound
The new headphones are compatible with Bluetooth 5.2 and are IP55 certified. In addition to supporting SBS and AAC codecs, the Buds 3T Pro support the LHDC 4.0 codec. Created by Savitech, it is an alternative to Sony’s LDAC or Qualcomm aptX that allows speeds of up to 900 kbit/s. Another curiosity, these headphones come with a “Dimensional” audio function (or surround sound) to offer 360-degree surround sound. The goal is to offer a “live” experience to headset wearers by tracking head movements.
The Xiaomi Buds 3T Pro claim a battery life of 6 hours, to which 24 hours are added thanks to the casing. It is wirelessly rechargeable and comes, like the headphones, in black and white. With a USB-C cable, it takes about 70 minutes to fully charge. Inside each earbud is a 38mAh battery, while the case offers a 480mAh battery. Each earphone weighs 4.9 grams, for a total of 48 grams.
If the price in euros is still unknown, Xiaomi is already advancing a price of $199. The Buds 3T Pro come with a USB-C charging cable and ear tips.
