More companies are trying to kill off the 3.5 mm audio jack. After the iPhone, HTC U11, and Pixel 2, Xiaomi too has decided to abandon a 3.5 mm jack. The Xiaomi Mi 6 chooses the Type-C USB port over the conventional one. To along with it, the Chinese company has launched its Type-C noise-canceling earphones for the Indian audience.
Xiaomi claims that the earphones are fine-tuned by Spanish Grammy-winning artist Luca Bignardi. These earphones allow a dynamic range from 5Hz-40,000Hz and a higher sensitivity of 113dB. The cable is a braided wire with elastic material to reduce tangling and breaking. It has a microphone, call accept and reject functions. The earphone can cancel noise from the surroundings above 25dB with a frequency range between 50hz – 2000Hz. Say for instance you are stuck in traffic with people murmuring around and vehicles honking, these earphones would cancel a fair amount of that noise so that you don’t require to turn up the volume to the highest level.
Xiaomi reveals that these noise-canceling earphones are only compatible with Xiaomi’s Mi 5, Mi 5s, Mi 5s Plus, Mi Mix 2, Mi Mix, Mi Note 2, and Mi 6. If you own an iPhone or Pixel 2, you better check the compatibility before ordering one. The earphones cost Rs 2,999 and would go on sale on the company’s website shortly.
