Clearly, Xiaomi is looking to come and play in the big leagues.

Xiaomi expands its range of wireless headphones
Xiaomi is not really a newcomer to headphones. We owe him in particular the Mi True Wireless or even the Redmi AirDots 3. With the FlipBuds Pro, Xiaomi is starting to offer a new, slightly more premium range.
What do they offer? On the design side, we are on familiar ground, strongly reminiscent of the Huawei FreeBuds Pro or the Oppo Enco X. We therefore find a rounded case and a pair of headphones in in-ear format. The latter offer up to 7 hours of autonomy without noise reduction and 5 hours with, and the box offers up to 28 more autonomy.
Inside the headphones, we can count on Qualcomm’s new chip, the QCC5151, which provides a more stable wireless link and the latest AAC, SBC and aptX Adaptive codecs. Otherwise, we take advantage of Bluetooth 5.2 as well as a low latency mode for mobile gaming. However, it will not be available with all smartphones, but only with the Mi Mix Fold, Mi 11, Mi 10, Redmi K40, Redmi K30 and Redmi Note 9 Pro.
Sound side, we should also be served since these headphones offer 11 mm diameter speakers. But the big highlight of the FlipBuds Pro is the active noise reduction. Thanks to their in-ear format and Qualcomm’s chip, they are able to reduce the sound environment by 40 dB, according to the brand.
The Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro were announced in China, where they will be available on May 21 for 799 yuan (€ 109 excl. For France, it will be necessary to be patient.
