Xiaomi Trolls Apple AirPods with $30 AirDots

The Chinese electronics manufacturer Xiaomi has launched its AirDots earbuds in China today which go against the Apple Airpods and offer similar functionality. And as you might expect from the name, they're almost identical to Apple's AirPods in several important ways. In terms of design, however, the AirDots look more like traditional Bluetooth earbuds without any stem left dangling outside of your ear. These also include tappable controls, and a compact charging case as well. The new offering from the Chinese giant is designed with Bluetooth v5.0 support.

While the new invention, AirDots doesn't seems like an Apple's AirPods, it's a really nice earbud device that is quite cheaper than the Apple AirPods.

Xiaomi at its launch event has promoted the new AirDots Youth Edition as being immune to frequent disconnections. Like the rest, the Mi AirDots also come with true wireless stereo (TWS) technology that is responsible for efficiently splitting the audio in both the earbuds. Unfortunately, no news yet of global availability but Xiaomi does have some events scheduled this week so that may still happen. While turning the AirDots headset back on again, the AirDots connect automatically with the previously connected device without any additional hassle. These new AirPods come with model numbers A2031 and A2032 which could correspond to the left and right AirPod with the models having already completed the Bluetooth Qualification process. It takes only a single touch to start or pause music, and other functions such as making calls and sending messages can be performed smoothly using these touch buttons. Users can also put the earphones into the case to charge them without having to use an external charging source. The AirDots Youth Edition can provide a continuous music playback of up to four hours.
