Redmi Buds 5 Pro uses a coaxial dual-driver architecture – a dynamic woofer and a ceramic tweeter work together to provide high-resolution HiFi sound quality. It supports LHDC 5.0 transmission protocol and has obtained Hi-Res Audio Wireless certification. Supports SoundID ear canal calibration and customizes personalized tuning curves. It supports spatial audio and has three modes: standard, music, and video, bringing a full-scene 360° surround sound field experience.
Through self-developed acoustic cavity structure and dual-microphone double-feed noise cancellation, it can support up to 52dB noise cancellation depth and 4000Hz noise cancellation bandwidth. They also supports 3 adaptive noise cancellation modes (depth, balance, mild) and 3 types of transparency modes (transparency mode, vocal enhancement, environment enhancement). Based on the collaboration of three microphones, namely feedforward, feedback and call, and Xiaomi’s self-developed algorithm, it can suppress 99% of daily sound sources and resist wind noise of about 9m/s.
Supports Bluetooth 5.3 and dual device connection. The full link latency is as low as 49ms. In terms of battery life, the single playback time has been increased to 10 hours (ANF off), and the comprehensive battery life is about 38 hours. Supports fast charging function – 5 minutes of charging, you can listen to music for 2 hours.
