Xiaomi unveils Mi AirDots Youth Edition, $30 truly wireless earbuds

08 November 2018

In contrast with the exterior design of Apple's AirPods, the AirDots are much subtler and don't extend beyond your ear like the stem of the Apple version does. For instance, Apple AirPods is valued at $159, while Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is releasing the same thing for almost $30.

Taking on Apple AirPods, Xiaomi has finally unveiled the Mi AirDots Youth Edition truly wireless earphones.

Starting off with the controls, they come with a touch sensitive zone which allows you to interact with the voice assistant, play or pause music, attend or reject a voice call or even mute an ongoing voice call just with a simple finger touch. The new AirPods are expected to connect to Apple products like the iPhone, iPads and MacBooks using the new Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity option.

The listing for the new pair of Apple AirPods was discovered in the Bluetooth Special Interest Group's regulatory database early this month. As of now, there are no words if Xiaomi will bring the Mi AirDots to other markets including India, or not. Unfortunately, no news yet of worldwide availability but Xiaomi does have some events scheduled this week so that may still happen. Not all smartphones have the tap-to-wake feature, so this feature in the AirDots Youth Edition might come in handy. Said pairing is automatic once you remove them from the charging/carry box, too, as long as you've gone through the initial pairing process.
