We recently reviewed the Redmi Earbuds S, which came at an incredible price in the budget segment. However, some design spaces were left in those that have been captured well by the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2. Let’s start with those. You do not get a pill-shaped charging box here; the charging box is designed in a rectangular shape with curved edged. In which you get the twin earplugs that at first do seem inspired by Apple Airpods, but once you pop them out, they are very different and have an identity of their own.
These are in no way flimsy or cheap. They are in the premium category of wireless earplugs and it shows. The handle on both the earplugs make up for good usage. One can easily place them in the ear and the way they are built they will fit well in all ear types. They nicely sit in the ear cavity and you do not get any scars in your ears as they are built of soft glossy plastic. The charging case is also rock solid and much better than its younger brother or its competition. The lid is sturdy and you do not find the materials used to be sub-standard. The charging case has a dedicated button for Bluetooth connectivity. A LED light on it shows you the connection or charging status.
Coming back to the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 both handles are feather touch-sensitive. Which mean you can receive or end calls, play music and even enable voice assistants. These work feather flawlessly across smartphones, PCs and MacBooks. But you cannot control the volume from these touch buttons, for that you would need to pop out the cell phone and do it manually. However, the music auto pauses as soon as you unplug the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 from any of the ears, as both the earplugs have in-ear detection sensors.
Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Performance
Coming over to the fun part, its sound and performance. Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 come with a 14.2mm audio drivers in each earplug. These make up for some really good resonance. The high and lows are good, however, we missed the bass in these. That could have been punchier. Call quality is really good and there is hardly any distortion or lag here. The other side on the voice call can also hear you properly since it has 2 microphones on each earplug on top and bottom (in total 4).
These come with environmental noise cancellation, which is a must if you work or stay in a noisy environment. So, when talking ambient noise is cancelled automatically and the listener can hear you well. Battery life on the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 is also good. The company claims you can extract up to 4 hours on the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 in a single charge and combined with the charging case you can get 14 hours of battery life. Well, they are right, we got over 3 hours 45 minutes on a single charge and with the charging case, we got over 13 hours of battery life.
The Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 work on Bluetooth V5.0 so our suggestion is to use them with compatible devices as the audio quality becomes much better. Same goes for gaming when paired with a BT V5.0 device. Even though these are not made for gaming, we did enjoy sessions of Call of Duty mobile with them. Users can access voice assistants with the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 as well. We tried them with Google assistant and it understood us correctly 9 out of 10 times. That is quite good.
Overall, the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 is a neat piece of machinery. It impressed us at various levels including its build, call quality and very good resonance. The bass definitely could have been better, but some would like it at that level. At Rs 3,999 these are class-leading wireless audio earplugs you can buy. White might get dirty at times, so our suggestion is to keep a cloth handy to quickly wipe off any smudges that accumulate so that they do not stick to them.
