Remember the Xiaomi Mi Headphones that was unveiled back in January? Xiaomi Malaysia has announced that it will be coming to our shores very soon. On top of that, the company is also offering a lucky fan the chance to receive it earlier than everyone else, provided the individual can do a professional review.
The Mi Headphones is a rather unique audio device in the sense that it can be both an over-the-ear and on-ear headphones. This is accomplished with interchangeable ear covers. While this may not seem like a groundbreaking feature, it should make the Mi Headphones more appealing to a wider range of audience who prefer either on-ear or over-the-ear headphones.
Other specifications of the Mi Headphones include a 50mm beryllium diaphragm speakers – which Xiaomi claims are 25% bigger than other headphones, a semi-open acoustic structure, and a low impedance of 32Ω, which makes it suitable for mobile use. Appearance-wise, it does look rather premium, especially when it only retails at 499 Chinese yuan (about RM295) in China.
