Today I want to tell you about high-quality budget headphones from the company Xiaomi — Xiaomi Mi Headphones.
I want to say right away that they are one of the best headphones that I came across that I used.
Appearance. Externally, the headphones look very cool. On the headphones there are metal inserts “under gold”. Headphones look very rich, but not modern. Rather, it is the “old school” style, but this style in headphones is so much in the subject that it automatically catches the eye. The cups themselves are made of aluminum, and the most remarkable thing is that they have a lot of grooves, which results in a shimmering and shining effect.
In the middle of the bowl there is a woven convex mesh. The headboard and cups fastening links are connected with yellow screws, which looks just as luxurious. In general, the headphones themselves are from the “expensive-rich” series, but the price has nothing to do with it. The edges of the headboard are clad in “golden” tips, on which it is written where the right earpiece is, and where the left one is. More letters “L” and “R” can be found on the back of the ear pads. The headband is made of synthetic leather, which also gives a certain luxury. The headband is quite soft, but it presses a little on the head. Headphones are assembled perfectly, no backlash and creaking.
A huge plus that cable can be detached. Closer to the middle, the cable has splitters that are connected to each “ear” separately. The cable itself is very well made. It seems to be fabric, has a fabric braid, which means that the cable becomes more reliable and durable.
Remote controller. He is here. Also golden. It has one button with which you can pause the track, answer the call, and switch the melodies “back” and “forward”.
A huge minus for me was that there are no volume control buttons. It seems to me that the remote control is a little out of the general design of the headphones, it does not really fit into the overall picture.
Equipment. Separately, I want to say about the configuration. She is one of the best here. Firstly, there is a hard case in the package, in which you can store the headphones, there is also a soft case, but which will not protect the headphones. In addition, there are 2 adapters, which are very rare now in the headphone package. And what was completely news to me is that there are three pairs of interchangeable ear pads in the kit. The first are standard, made of synthetic leather, the second are the same, only made of foam rubber, and the third pair are the largest. The sound of the first and third is no different, the latter can be used for long listening to music.
Sound. The sound in leather ear cushions is quite juicy. It is very cool that the headphones have pronounced bass. The noise isolation in the headphones is average. Even, for example, in transport, it is not very convenient to use them — external noise interferes.
But in foam rubber ear pads, the sound is different, drier and flatter. They can be used if the sound is very oversaturated, and with big bass (if, of course, this happensJ)
The headphones themselves open type. Another huge disadvantage is that the headphones have very poor sound isolation, which means that if you listen to music, the people around you will hear it perfectly.
The headphones are distinguished by the fact that there is a drawing of the sound stage, and this means that the sound becomes, as it were, multi-layered and easily separable. Each sound plan is quite clear (keys, drums).
When listening to music with vocal load, crystal clear sound is heard.
All genres of music sound in headphones very good.
Conclusion. I would like to start summing up the shortcomings. These include a low-functional remote control, poor sound insulation and noise isolation. Of the advantages, I could single out very beautiful, stylish headphones in the “old” style. For the price, these are very cool headphones for home or studio use. You should also not listen to music in public transport, perhaps only classicalJ
