Even Xiaomi is riding the wave of true wireless headphones by creating a variety of designs with various features. The Xiaomi AirDots , for example, have had the success they deserve but Xiaomi certainly does not stop there. In fact Xiaomi has presented the Xiaomi Air 2 , a pair of true wireless headphones with the AirPods style.
Xiaomi Air 2 specifications
Before moving on to how to use the Xiaomi Air 2 , let’s see how they are made and what they can do.
Design and Features
The Xiaomi Air 2 were created in the wake of the AirPods but the design has nothing to do with them. In fact, the Xiaomi Air 2 are coarser both as regards the stina and the capsule. The model is a non-ear , in resistant plastic and white in color. These Air 2 are equipped with a double microphone for noise reduction and a proximity sensor that allows you to stop the music when we remove the headphones and to restart it when we wear them again. The headphones have an integrated battery that allows us to use them for about 3 hours. They connect via Bluetooth 5.0 and use the LHDC codec to overcome the latency problem.
The box, on the other hand, is small and therefore comfortable to carry. With the headphones inside it weighs 50gr and is without wireless charging. It has a USB type-c port for charging on the back, a LED on the front and a button for pairing on the side. The door is magnetic and inside it has magnetic pins that hold the earphones firmly when they are inside. The box has an integrated battery that recharges in an hour and in turn recharges the headphones for another 2 uses.
What Xiaomi Air 2 can do
After seeing how they are certainly made we must also understand what we can do with these Xiaomi Air 2 true wireless headphones.
With the Xiaomi Air 2 we can:
- listen to music
- make calls
- interact with the voice assistant
All without touching the smartphone but using two taps on the headset itself. But let’s go in order, let’s understand how to use them step by step.
Connect the Xiaomi Air 2 to the smartphone
The first thing to do is to establish the connection between the Xiaomi Air 2 and the smartphone. The connection can be made with any smartphone both Android and Apple .
- Open the smartphone bluetooth
- Press and hold the button on the side of the box, the LED flashes
- Search for available bluetooth devices “Mi True Wireless Earphones 2”
- Click on the item “Mi True Wireless Earphones 2”
- Flag “allow access to your contacts” and click “Pair”
We will immediately see the connection established between the headphones and the smartphone. Now we can start using headphones. Once worn we will hear a small sound on both headphones.
In the bluetooth menu of the smartphone we can see the battery status of the headphones.
Obviously this operation must be done only once. Then just open the smartphone’s bluetooth and the headphones cover, the connection is automatic and immediate. The audio will start once the headphones are pulled out. P
How to use the Xiaomi Air 2
Once worn, as we have already anticipated, the Xiaomi Air 2 work through two taps on the headset.
The taps can be customized through the Xiao Ai Lite app (currently all in Chinese) and let’s see how to do it step by step. Upon arrival, without settings and updates, the Xiaomi Air 2 have the preset taps that I personally left.
- two tap play / pause for music
- two taps answer / end a call
- two tap voice assistant
- two taps answer / end call
Unfortunately for now we can only take advantage of these few functions. The only setting that can be replaced by the app is to forward / rewind the audio track. We hope for future updates.
