In 2020, various types of ANC-TWS will explode, and active noise reduction headphones will follow one after another. But what I am most looking forward to is this Xiaomi Air 2 Pro.

Why? There is a saying in the digital circle: What brand of mobile phone is used, what brand of TWS should be bought. And the mobile phone I use every day is the Xiaomi mobile phone.

Xiaomi Air 2 Pro

In the true wireless earphones industry in 2020, there is a question:
In addition to imitating AirPods Pro, true wireless noise-canceling headphones, are there other good designs?

Xiaomi Air 2 Pro

Xiaomi Air 2 Pro uses its own design to answer this question.

Xiaomi Air 2 Pro

The black charging box uses a flat design with top and bottom cuts and a matte process that does not stick to fingerprints. When you take out the Xiaomi Air 2 Pro in public, no one will “admit it wrong”.

There are also many differentiated designs on the earphones body. For example, the glossy ceramic sheet contrasts with the matte texture of the main body, and it also doubles as the touch control area of ​​the earphones.

Many high-end TWS make wireless charging optional. The Xiaomi Air 2 Pro earphones comes with wireless charging as standard. Bluetooth earphoness support wireless charging, not just another way to charge. When the earphones is out of power when going out, you can use the mobile phone’s wireless reverse charging for emergency charging, which is much more convenient.

The new earphones design makes the wearing experience very comfortable (at least for me). It just covers the concha cavity, and there is no discomfort after wearing it for an hour or two. Among so many TWS I have bought this year, it is the most comfortable one. However, people’s outer ears are very different, and comfort varies from person to person. No matter what kind of earphones you are buying, it is recommended that you experience it before you decide.

If you have a Xiaomi mobile phone, approach the phone and open the charging box. Pop-ups and connections are done in one go.

After connecting, there is no need to download any APP. The MIUI system has been equipped with a matching set, and you can enjoy all the functions of the earphones. This is the advantage of matching with the brand.

The Xiaomi Air 2 Pro earphones is also deeply adapted to XiaoAi students and can be directly awakened by voice. Move your mouth, the lights come on and music plays. Does it feel like Iron Man?

Noise reduction effect
Last year, Xiaomi’s noise reduction collar earphones can be said to be a dark horse in the ANC category. Air2 Pro is also the first time Xiaomi has brought ANC to true wireless headphones, and its noise reduction effect makes me look forward to it.

Xiaomi Air 2 Pro

What is the actual performance? Let’s talk about several scenarios first:

Shopping center (noise reduction effect: ⭐⭐⭐⭐)

Xiaomi Air 2 ProTurn on noise reduction in shopping malls, except for human speech, other noises will basically be significantly reduced. For example, air-conditioning, the sound of various machines and equipment, and the music of store promotion. It’s like being separated by a wall and becoming “very far”. Compared with Sony WF-1000XM3, low-frequency noise reduction has obvious advantages. For a detailed Sony WF-1000XM3 review, please see this article: Noise is everywhere, Enjoying life quietly depends on these two headphones!

Subway commuting (noise reduction effect: ⭐⭐⭐)

Xiaomi Air 2 ProSimilar to the previous scene, the noise reduction of Xiaomi Air 2 Pro earphones is mainly reflected in the low frequency. On the subway, low-frequency noise is emitted when mechanical equipment and air conditioners are working. The human voice will also be reduced a bit. The high-frequency noise generated by rail friction during subway operation is beyond the capability of ANC.

But overall, the noise reduction of the subway is still effective. If noise reduction is not enabled, due to the interference of external noise, it is usually necessary to increase the volume by 2 to hear the music clearly. There is no need to increase the volume after turning on noise reduction. And the low frequency part of music can be heard more clearly.

Downtown streets (noise reduction effect ⭐⭐⭐⭐)

Xiaomi Air 2 ProWearing Xiaomi Air 2 Pro for shopping and running, the noise reduction effect is the most obvious. The sound of car engines running and the sound of tires rubbing against the ground are significantly reduced. If you take off the earphones at this time, you will find it so noisy around. This is probably the scene where Air 2 Pro earphones are best. If you are worried that it is not safe to walk with headphones, you can turn on transparent mode. The microphone picks up the ambient sound, and you can hear the road conditions clearly without removing the earphones.

Among the main TWS reduction I have used this year, the noise reduction of Xiaomi Air 2 Pro is enough to rank in the top few places, which is comparable to Sony WF-1000XM3. It is also better than new products like Freebuds Pro, which can be reflected from the third-party noise reduction spectrum test.

Delay and battery life

Xiaomi Air 2 ProWorking in SBC mode, the delay of Xiaomi Air 2 Pro is about 212ms. Entering the game automatically turns on the low-latency mode, and the delay will be further reduced. But there is no way to test the specific delay. According to Xiaomi’s official news, Air2 Pro will be adapted to LHDC and the corresponding low-latency mode in the future. As for the performance, you can only do the test after the firmware is pushed.

But the most surprising thing is battery life. The measured Xiaomi Air2 Pro earphones can play continuously for 8 hours and 43 minutes on a single charge. It is the true wireless earphones with the strongest battery life I have used this year. Since the ANC is automatically turned off after the earphones is taken off, the battery life after the noise reduction is turned on cannot be tested in detail. I used it for about 7 hours, and it was durable enough.

According to relevant dismantling information. Xiaomi Air 2 Pro uses the low-power Hengxuan BES2300 chip, and is equipped with a 55mAh button battery with a larger capacity in TWS. This explains to some extent the excellent battery life of the Air 2 Pro earphones.

Summary: The “best partner” for Xiaomi phones
I have used many third-party TWS successively this year. But with Xiaomi mobile phones, there will always be some bugs: unstable connection, voice assistant failure, high latency, incompatible supporting APP, etc. It’s not that it’s difficult to use, but it’s depressing. On the Xiaomi Air 2 Pro, this small problem of death-compulsive disorder was wiped out. It works well with Xiaomi mobile phones; noise reduction and battery life are also very comfortable.

In short, if you are a Xiaomi mobile phone user, you need a noise-canceling earphones. Then Xiaomi Air 2 Pro is the first choice.
