Xiaomi now has a pair of USB Type-C earphones with active noise cancellation

Xiaomi has produced a couple of impressive value for money earphones that sound better than the ones that come with your phone. With several smartphones going jack-less including Xiaomi’s very own Mi 6 flagship, the Chinese brand has finally introduced its first ever USB Type-C in-ear headphones.

Not only it supports the new interface, Xiaomi has also added active noise cancellation for a better music experience.

The Mi USB Type-C in-ear headphones come with a 1.2m long cable and it’s partially braided from the Type-C connector to its middle control module. The earpiece itself is made of titanium alloy with a frequency response of 20 to 40,000Hz and a 32 Ohm impedance. Like its current Mi In-Ear Headphone Pro HD, it also Hi-Res audio certified.

Unlike typical noise cancelling headphones, there’s no need to charge as it draws power from the phone’s USB Type-C port. When enabled, it can suppress noise above 25dB with a frequency range between 50 – 2000Hz. This makes it perfect to drown out unwanted background noise during your commute or while taking a flight.

Out of the box, you’ll get a hard case that comes with a soft pouch and spare ear buds in various sizes. What’s impressive is the price. The Xiaomi USB Type-C earphones with ANC is going for 299 CNY which is about RM186.60 if converted directly. As a comparison, JBL’s USB Type-C based headphones with noise cancellation is going for US$199 which is about RM856.

According to the product page, it currently supports the Xiaomi Mi 5, Mi 5S, Mi 5S Plus, Mi Mix, Mi Note 2 and Mi 6. Users are urged to update to the latest MIUI version before using. Interestingly, the Mi 5C and Redmi Pro isn’t supported.
