Xiaomi has launched the new FlipBuds Pro TWS earphones in China today. The new truly wireless headphones will join the already quite wide range of TWS headphones that Xiaomi offers.
The FlipBuds Pro look a lot like the AirPods Pro when it comes to design, although Xiaomi’s offering is more comprehensive. Even the set of features on offer is quite similar. The key selling point for FlipBuds Pro is the active noise cancellation on offer. Xiaomi claims that the headphones offer active noise cancellation of up to 40 decibels and come with three modes: office, daily, and air travel.
In terms of specs, the headphones include 11mm drivers and three microphones. Plus, they come with Bluetooth 5.2 and Qualcomm aptX support. Like the AirPods Pro, the FlipBuds Pro also offer compression gestures on the stem, dual transparency mode, low-latency audio support, and support for fast pairing of two devices.
According to the company, the headphones offer 5 hours of battery life on a load when ANC is on, and 7 hours without active noise cancellation. You can obviously use the case to recharge the earbuds, and the FlipBuds Pro offer a total battery life of 22 hours with ANC on and 28 hours with ANC off. That’s a pretty solid battery life.
In addition, the headphones also support fast charging, with Xiaomi claiming that a 5-minute fast charge is enough for the headphones to last another two hours, and the the case can be fully charged in just 35 minutes also. As for how the case actually charges, there is a USB Type-C port, as well as support for wireless charging.
The FlipBuds Pro will go on sale in China from May 21 and is priced at 799 Yuan (~ Rs. 9000). Xiaomi said Android Authority that the company has no plans to launch the headphones on the global market as of now, so in case you wanted to buy them in India, it seems like you will have to wait quite a long time, at best. In the meantime, you can check out some of the best noise canceling TWS headphones in India.
