After launching the Piston Fresh in-ear headphones just three days ago, Xiaomi has now launched budget Mi headphones. Priced at RMB 199, which translates to about Rs 2,000, these new headphones are currently only available in China. The budget Mi headphones are believed to be the lighter version of the high-end Mi headphones that were launched last year. The high-end Mi headphones were launched at a price tag of RMB 499, which is somewhere around Rs 5,000.

Coming back to the new budget Mi Headphones, these would be available in Mint, Orange, and White colours. On the outside, the headphones will sport PU leather material in the earmuffs, on the other hand, the inside of the headphone will use a silicon material. Xiaomi distinctly mentions that the Mi Headphones material is “skin-friendly.” The new pair of Headphones sport “sound chamber design” and are claimed to eliminate outside noise.

Also, Mi Headphones feature a built-in dampening material, which helps absorbing the impact of internal acoustic waves on the diaphragm, that reduces distortion and restore more music details. One of the unofficial Mi threads also add that the new Mi Headphones received Japan Hi-Res Audio high-quality audio product standard certification. The new Headphones comes with an impedance of 32 Ohms.
Last week, Xiaomi launched an in-ear headphone under its Piston series. Called the Piston Fresh, the headphones are available in five different color options, namely, black, silver, blue, purple and pink. It comes with a price tag of RMB 29, which is roughly about Rs 300. ALSO READ: Xiaomi Piston Fresh in-ear headphones launched in China, priced around Rs 300
One of the highlights of the headphones is the aluminum chambers with an improved dampening system. The Piston Fresh comes with metal chambers, which is made of anodized aluminum alloy. The chambers are also scratch-resistant and anti-fingerprint. The tips come with silicon earbuds, which are available in small and large sizes. As far as the dampening system goes, it supposedly allows separate airflow for the front and rear chambers, which ultimately helps deliver better tri-band performance. It also has an in-line control which is comprised of a microphone and a dedicated button that can be used for answering and ending calls along with play and pause music.
