The trend is clear, more and more smartphone manufacturers say goodbye to the classic 3.5 mm jack connector and offer headphones for the remaining, universal connection. What is with Apple the lightning connector, is with Xiaomi the universal USB type C port.
In addition to the new connector, Xiaomi has implemented Active Noise Canceling for the first time. This is active in the frequency range from 50Hz – 2000Hz and should reduce background noise by up to 25 dB.
As with almost all headphones in the Xiaomi Piston series, the Xiaomi ANC In-Ears is also a headphone with hybrid drivers consisting of dynamic and BA drivers.
While the ELE Whisper ANC In-Ears have a battery for the ANC, the Xiaomi ANC In-Ears has no battery installed. The headphone thus serves the smartphone battery, whether this the duration is noticeably shortened remains to be seen.
The headset’s music app and the headphone’s ANC can be switched on or off using the control unit, which is located centrally between the two handsets.
Completely compatible are the headphones with the Xiaomi smartphones: Xiaomi Mi6, Mi 5, Mi 5S, Mi 5 Plus, Mi Mix, Redmi Pro and Note 2.
Only partially compatible are the models Xiaomi 4C and 4S, here works only the ANC and the headphones per se, the control knobs are not supported. This also applies to most other smartphones with USB-C interface.
