The headphones are held in similar, simple colors like the UMi BTA8 or UMi BTA9 and weigh about 8 grams per listener. Overall, the Xiaomi Mi sports headset, as used by the Chinese manufacturer, is well processed. There are no flaws and both buttons and the protection cap of the micro-USB port are properly processed. Also the ear pads sit very tightly on the handset and will not be easily lost.

Battery life

The built- 100 mAh battery should hold up to seven hours of music, according to the manufacturer, in standby mode it is 280 hours. The Micro-USB port for charging the battery is located on the right handset.

Unfortunately a USB-plug is not included.

Service

The Xiaomi Mi Sports headset can be operated with the three built-in buttons. The “loud”, “lower” buttons are located directly on the right handset and another play / pause button on the headset is connected to the cable that connects the two handsets, Is attached. The buttons are doubled.

Unfortunately, Xiaomi has also missed the headset a language feedback in Chinese, which comments Bluetooth connections, and a weak battery. It is noticeable that the manufacturer does not necessarily want to land with the headphones in the European market, but wants to primarily serve the domestic market.

Comfort

The curved shape keeps the headphones better at the ears than for example in-ears, so can be worn while running and spare the wearer thanks to the Bluetooth function (Bluetooth 4.1) the annoying cable in front of the chest. In addition, they are water-resistant according to IPX4, so they do not interfere with the sweat. Unfortunately, the earbands are very small, which means that they are not suitable for every European ear. Anyone who has already ordered dresses from China knows that in China everything is slightly smaller – so also the ear hooks of the Xiaomi Mi Sports Headset, me personally the UMi BTA9 fit somewhat better.

The sound of the Xiaomi Mi Sports Headset

The Xiaomi Mi Sports Headset is, compared to the UMi BTA9 Headset or the iClever BTH07, less bass- assisted. However, the overall sound is more balanced and clearer. In my opinion, Xiaomi presents here the best overall sound picture in the field of sports headsets from China, which we have already tested. Basses are clear and powerful, but not too dominant. The Xiaomi Mi Sports headset is much better than the other models in the high and midrange range, as they are much clearer and less dull. Considering the price of ~ 25 € you can be very satisfied with the sound.

Headset

The headset is attached to the right handset, during our tests, my opponent could understand me well and there was hardly any noise.

Conclusion

The Xiaomi Mi Sports Headset convinces with a very good workmanship, a solid sound picture, coupled with a good price / performance ratio. The manufacturer has once again managed to place a solid product in the low-price segment, which can certainly compete with significantly more expensive products from manufacturers, which are more strongly represented in Europe. Only the language feedback in Chinese is a bit annoying, but one can bear in view of the price of the headset.
