Xiaomi Trolls Apple AirPods with $30 AirDots

Xiaomi Releases AirDots Wireless Earbuds With Bluetooth 5.0

XiaomiAirDots are an affordable Apple AirPods alternative priced at around $29

Today could be your lucky day, with the news that Chinese tech company Xiaomi has launched a pair of AirPod clones that cost just $29 based on current conversion rates.

The AirDots Youth Edition looks very similar to Apple AirPods apart from the name, as they come with a minimalist white design and a very small size with a number of surprising features. First spotted by Engadget the AirDots are apparently exclusive to China at the moment. For instance, Apple AirPods is valued at $159, while Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is releasing the same thing for almost $30. However, that's the beauty of business. Now, new headphones are available only in the Chinese market.

What's more, Xiaomi's product is targeted towards Android, which means that it can potentially sell a lot more of its AirDots, as compared to the AirPods. At the same time, if they charge them in the case (incidentally similar to AirPods), the autonomy increases to 12 hours.

A bibliophile and a business enthusiast. The AirDots are priced at 199 Yuan (approx Rs. 2,100) and will be coming with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity for wireless streaming. Unfortunately, no news yet of worldwide availability but Xiaomi does have some events scheduled this week so that may still happen.

The company claims that with the support of Bluetooth 5.0, the frequent single-ear disconnections can be reduced by a big margin which will allow its users to enjoy music without interruptions. It is possible to activate/deactivate voice assistant including the ability to play music, call answering, rejection and much more. Not all smartphones have the tap-to-wake feature, so this feature in the AirDots Youth Edition might come in handy. Once juiced up, the earbuds reportedly provide a playback time of four hours. The earpieces need to be placed back in their box for charging, and when that is done, they automatically disconnect, shut down and start charging. You will be able to buy via Xiaomi Youpin, Xiaomi Mall, Jingdong, Suning and Tmall.
