Shortly after introducing its V3 Piston In-Ear headphones, Xiaomi is bringing yet another newer version to Malaysia. Announced just in time for the mega Single’s Day sale in China, the Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro is bringing its audio experience up a notch while maintaining a low price tag.
The V3 Piston priced at RM69 were much improved over its former V2.1 Pistons with an ergonomically designed earpiece for greater comfort. The new Pro version carries this over and it boasts better sound with its hybrid driver set up consisting of a dynamic unit and a two-way balanced armature driver. On the exterior, it gets a polished metal back and it uses a durable Kevlar fiber cable that’s wrapped in a braided sleeve.
For smartphone use, there’s a 3-button controller with a built-in mic attached to the right side cable. Despite its more upmarket audio credentials, the packaging for the Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro is rather basic compared to its former Piston V2.1/V3.0 series. There’s no nice hard plastic case or a rubber cable organiser. For RM79, we can’t really complain and it has a stronger bass than the previous Pistons.
If you want something better than your stock bundled headphones, this pair is definitely worth paying for. The Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro will be available starting 10th December and you can order it from the Malaysian Mi Store.
