In addition to flagship smartphones and smart watches, other equally interesting novelties were presented at the Xiaomi presentation. Among them are the Xiaomi Buds 4 wireless headphones, which are a simplified but more sophisticated version of the Buds 4 Pro model, which debuted in August this year. This model replaced last year’s Xiaomi Buds 3 and received a significant upgrade.
Xiaomi Buds 4 are made in an in-ear form factor similar to AirPods. They do not have silicone ear pads, and the headphones themselves are protected from water and dust according to the IPX54 standard. Each earbud has a microphone (there are three in total) that are used for noise reduction during calls. Users can control music and other functions with touch.
Xiaomi Buds 4 are equipped with two graphene dynamic drivers, support active noise cancellation (ANC) technology, provide spatial sound, and also have a transparency mode. In addition, the headphones provide high-quality sound thanks to LHDC 5.0 and Hi-Res support.
Case for storage and charging is made in a two-tone design. The upper part has a glossy finish for metal, and the lower part is matte, made of plastic. Built-in batteries with a capacity of 30 mAh each are responsible for the autonomy of the headphones; there is also a 480 mAh battery in the case. The continuous playback time reaches 6 hours and 30 hours with the charging case. Xiaomi Buds 4 can be connected to two audio sources at the same time.
The cost of Xiaomi Buds 4 is 699 yuan (about $100). The headphones are available in three colors: Moon Shadow, Salt Lake White and Field Green.
