TWS earbuds have recently been in great demand by many consumers, and in response to this request, Xiaomi launched the latest series of Flipbuds in China, and did not rule out the possibility of pouring into many markets, including Indonesia.
The first model in the FlipBuds series is the Pro version, which is targeted at a relatively premium market segment with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and a design similar to the Airpods Pro.
This Xiaomi Flipbuds Pro feature undeniably gets its inspiration from the Apple AirPods Pro. The short stem typical design with a curved body looks similar to Apple’s earbuds.
However, the FlipBuds Pro differentiates itself with a very shiny black body and it’s the only color available, at least for now.
For the specifications itself, the Flipbuds Pro is embedded with a Qualcomm QCC5151 ultra-low power audio chip along with 11mm ultra dynamic sound drivers.
So that the specifications presented can support bluetooth 5.2, and Xiaomi claims that low latency activities such as playing games are not a problem with these new earbuds.
As for the access features, it is arguably similar to the Apple AirPods Pro. If you long press the left or right earbud will switch between transparency mode and noise cancellation, one press will play, pause, receive a call, double pressing will move to the next music track or reject the call.
To power itself, the Flipbuds Pro’s oval-shaped charging case can be charged via a USB-C port or a wireless charger. Xiaomi also promises a total battery life of up to 28 hours with the case and a full 7 hours playing music on a single charge.
Then a contemporary feature is also presented, namely fast charging so you can play up to 2 hours in just 5 minutes charging with the case. The Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro will go on sale starting May 21, which is currently limited to the Chinese market at 799 yuan or 125 USD.
