India’s top smartphone manufacturer, Xiaomi has launched two new earphones in the country. They are called the Mi Earphones and the Mi Earphones Basic. Has the company taken over the earphones market too? Well, not yet and we are still to test these accessories out. Only time will tell if these budget earphones will actually survive in the marker. However, we must always know what’s coming to our plate, so let’s take a closer look at their features and price.
Xiaomi Mi Earphones Basic: specs and features
These earphones are made out of aluminium chambers and focus on offering clear and balanced sound quality. They have braided cables which are resistant to wear and tear. They also have an anodized anti-corrosion layer on top of them, which prevents the body from being vulnerable to atmospheric attacks.
The earphones have a comfortable disposition, thanks to their ergonomic design, which makes them anti-slippage. Xiaomi has made these earphones at such an angle that they can fit easily in your ears and the 45-degree angle of the AUX jack makes them more durable, apparently.
The Mi Basic Earphones have an in-ear design, as is clear. They come with a microphone and a pause, play, answer and hang up calls button. These earphones have been launched in two colours – Black and Red.

These are not to be confused with the Mi Earphones Basic. These earphones give more emphasis to a dynamic bass rather than a neutral sound floor. Their chamber is apparently crafted with precision cutting tools such as diamond cutting and of course, CD Engraving and anodizing.
The company says that it has used Aerospace grade metal for the earphones diaphragm. The metal has not been specified yet. Is Xiaomi hiding too much now? These earphones have braided fibre cables made of Kevlar. They also bring the same corrosion resistance as the Basic option of the two. To give the Mi Earphones an upper hand, Xiaomi has included an inbuilt MEMS microphone in the package. It simply means that the microphone is smaller, lighter while being more efficient, apparently.
The Mi Earphones have been launched at Rs 699 and the Mi Earphones Basic are priced at Rs 399. Both of these are available on Xiaomi’s official website. If you’re looking for a budget-friendly or a slightly premium pair of earphones for your smartphone, you should definitely keep an eye on this one.
