On October 13th, Xiaomi Air 2 Pro true wireless bluetooth earphones was directly released online and opened for pre-sale in all channels. This is Xiaomi’s first true wireless noise reduction earphones. The official promotion is that it supports “wideband active noise reduction” and adopts hybrid noise reduction. Solution, the noise reduction depth can reach up to 35dB.
In terms of configuration, Xiaomi Air 2 Pro true wireless bluetooth earphones uses a low-power bluetooth chip, supports LHDC 3.0 high-definition bluetooth decoding technology (subsequent OTA upgrade support) and MIUI system LLAC low-latency transmission technology, the official promotion delay can be shortened to less than 100ms ; The earphone has a built-in high-rigidity LCP liquid crystal composite diaphragm and a 12mm large-size dynamic unit, which is tuned by the Grammy master and world-class musician Luca Bignardi; the charging case supports the Qi wireless charging standard, and the earphone and charging case support fast charging , It can play music for 90 minutes after charging for 10 minutes (ANC is off), and the battery life is about 7 hours when the active noise reduction is turned off. The total battery life can reach 28 hours with the charging case.
The appearance of the Xiaomi Air 2 Pro earphones has changed significantly compared with the products of the same series. The shell has a larger curvature, the earphone handle is more slender, the earphone touch area is designed with a bright surface, and the official promotion uses ceramic processing. However, just like the previous Air series only has white, Air 2 Pro has only black one color. What are the upgrades in the internal design and materials of this product?
