Xiaomi RedMi AirDots Review and How to Guide

On my previous Lazada 9.9 Sale post, I shared with you what's inside my shopping cart. One of the items in my cart is the Xiaomi Mi Airdots True Wireless Bluetooth 5.0 Earphones (Basic). I've been wanting Bluetooth earphones for a very long time and I just don't have the courage to buy one. Because first, I still have my wired earphones (the one that comes free with my phone) and second, I find it expensive for earphones that I already have. Good thing there is the Lazada 9.9 sale that made me buy the earphones at exactly 12AM of September 9 (Afraid to ran out of stock). I got the earphones for Php899 only. A big markdown from its original price of Php1299!

It took a week for Lazada to deliver my order. I was so excited upon waiting for my order that I check the delivery status every day. Out of all the items I bought, this one took a long time to be delivered. It made me more excited and my, it really is worth the wait!

Before I get too excited on sharing you my thoughts on the earphones, if you're curious where I bought it, you may visit this link: Xiaomi Mi Airdots True Wireless Bluetooth 5.0 Earphones

Let's get to the good stuff, I'm beyond impressed with the sound quality of these earphones. It's so good to listen to your favorite music. It has noise cancellation that you will be able to listen to your favorite music/podcast with no disturbances. The bass sound whole, and is easy to the ears. For a Php899 earphones, this has very good quality audio. Airpods killer? Can be!

Product Quality

Upon touching the product, I can say that it's made of quality plastic. Even though it's made of plastic, it's sturdy to the touch. Even the charging pod has the same material as the earphones themselves. The charging pod even has magnets that satisfyingly snaps upon closing.

Final Thoughts
Xiaomi Mi AirDots Review and How to Guide On Ear

I can say that I'm super satisfied with the Xiaomi Mi AirDots Bluetooth Earphones! For the amount of money I shelled out, the performance is very good. One thing that I notice though is the occasional sound break up when I'm on spots with poor signal. Also, the sound breaks up when each earphone is slightly away from each other. I haven't tried the microphone and I think I won't be since this earphone is very much far from my mouth. I don't expect it to clearly pick up my voice, to be honest. For an earphone that will be used mainly for listening to music, this is a great deal.

  • Easy to setup/use
  • Good sound quality
  • Sturdy material
  • Long listening hours
  • Minimal and light design
  • Not waterproof
  • Sound breaks up on poor signal spots
  • Box doesn't contain a USB cable
  • Short maximum distance of the pair of earphone (breaks up when far away from each other)
