While that seems to be as affordable as wireless headphones, they are not as simple as one might imagine.

The Redmi AirDots Truly Wireless Bluetooth Headphones include a built-in Realtek 8763 chip and Bluetooth 5.0. They also feature capacitive touch controls and a simple double-tap function can be used to call the voice assistant. It even works with Siri on the iPhone.

Xiaomi claims that these headphones can last up to 4 hours on their own, while the carrying case extends up to 12 hours of playtime. The earbuds charge in 1.5 hours, while the 300mAh battery in the case takes 2 hours to charge to full capacity. Each earbud also weighs just 4.1 grams, making them quite practical for long periods of use.

The earbuds are expected to start shipping on April 9 in China, but nothing is yet known about the Redmi AirDots that are being introduced in other markets.
