More and more smartphone manufacturers turn their backs on the 3.5 mm jack plug connector. Although a large part of the users are rather negative, this trend is likely to continue in the future. Where does this mainly negative feedback come from? Many people hang on their cable headphones and do not find equivalent Bluetooth alternatives. A form of remedy for this problem, so-called Bluetooth audio receivers can represent, and exactly the same in the future of Xiaomi.
A Bluetooth audio receiver is, of course, not a completely new concept, nevertheless, Xiaomi tries to design the whole thing much more mobile than was the case so far. The goal: a receiver that fits into each pocket of the laptop, is paired with the smartphone, and then listen to music with the usual jack plug headphones. The timing is also not surprising, as Xiaomi in her current flagship, the Mi 6, on a 3.5 mm jack connection has waived, and had to write a lot of criticism.
The advantage of the long and narrow design is quite clear, the receiver fits for example in the Smartphone-Hosentasche. So that he does not fly loosely there is on the back a clip, with which he can be attached to the fabric. The operation is completely without an app and with only one button on the device itself, with which the device is switched on and off.
The idea is actually good, it is still not all problems eliminated. A frequently occurring argument is that the sound quality under Bluetooth can suffer – this is of course still the case here. In addition, the price is still too high, but since the device from Xiaomi is only available at GearBest since today, you can hope for much better prices in the future. Pretty good for the size, however, is the recharge time of 4 to 5 hours, which one comes without problem also by somewhat longer train journeys. As usual, a microUSB port is then charged at the lower end of the gadget. What do you think about the idea?
