The Xiaomi Buds 3T Pro are priced at US$199. These headphones are inspired by Apple to offer spatial audio for better immersion. There is also talk of active noise reduction and LHDC codec.

In addition to revealing the dollar prices of the Xiaomi 12, 12 Pro and 12X, Xiaomi is also introducing new truly wireless earbuds: the Buds 3T Pro. It’s interesting to see that these represent a far from trivial luxury move for the Chinese brand, as which are advertised at the recommended price of 199 US dollars (about 180 euros without taxes).

The Xiaomi Buds 3T Pro boast a dynamic transducer with a diaphragm consisting of a membrane suspended from a ring, on the back of which is glued a copper coil surrounded by a double magnet. In short, the promise is simple: powerful sound. Everything is also supported by a piece of software that the brand claims to have pampered to offer the LHDC audio codec for 24-bit/96 kHz songs with a low distortion rate. On paper, this means that the music you hear is reproduced with very good fidelity.

ANC and spatial audio

You can also count on active noise reduction (ANC) in these Xiaomi Buds 3T Pro. Added to this is the in-ear format of the headphones. The manufacturer thus speaks of a reduction “hybrid» up to 40dB. There are three intensity levels on offer for the ANC (Light, Balanced and Deep), but you can also activate a Transparency mode to keep an eye out for surrounding noise and especially people who are likely to be speaking to you.

Xiaomi speaks in particular “surround sound“. This allows “diffuses the sound around you and offers an authentic listening experience“. In theory, this is the same as the spatial audio feature that exists in Apple’s AirPods 3, AirPods Max, and AirPods Pro. So the sound is supposed to surround you as if you were in the middle of the orchestra while you listen to music. The Buds 3T Pro rely in particular on the movement of your head to reinforce this immersion. We will wait for the test to have more details on this subject and find out if, as is often the case with Xiaomi, these functions will be reserved for the smartphone from the manufacturer or will be available with all phones.

6 hours of battery life without active noise reduction

Hopefully the result lives up to the promises. Finally, note that the autonomy of Xiaomi Buds 3T Pro is announced at 6 hours without ANC only in use. We arrive up to 24 hours thanks to the case that can also be recharged wirelessly. The headphones are also sweat and splash resistant with their IP55 certification.

It remains to be seen now when they will be launched in France and at what price exactly. However, we know that there are two colors to choose from: black or white.
