Xiaomi is due to announce next week its new Mi Air 2 Pro wireless headset, with active noise cancellation. The gadget has been the target of several leaks of technical data, and now its design and some functions were revealed in a hands-on video released before the official launch.
The video reveals that the Mi Air 2 Pro will be quite similar to the AirPods Pro, as was already predicted – the Xiaomi phone also has an in-ear shape, with rods hanging out of the ear, and has noise cancellation. The Mi Air 2 Pro drivers would be 12 mm.
The touch-sensitive region will allow the user to perform various functions, such as playing and pausing songs. But, it seems, it will also be possible to activate or deactivate active noise cancellation through this surface – and the feature can only be enabled when both headphones are in use.
Mi Air 2 Pro should have wireless charging and autonomy of 28 hours
Early hands-on also shows support for wireless charging of the case. The case will also have a USB-C port on the side for charging via cable.
A leaked spec sheet shows the possible battery estimate of the new Xiaomi headphones. An autonomy of up to 28 hours away from the outlets is expected, with the aid of the case – which should drop to 20 hours, with noise canceling on. Headphones alone should provide up to 7 hours of music playback without noise cancellation.
Price and release date
There is still no information on the price of the Xiaomi Mi Air 2 Pro, but the manufacturer is expected to announce its launch initially in China, during an event scheduled for October 13th.
