Inside the blue packaging are the wireless earphones, charging case, USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable, documentation and spare ear cups.

Both the charging case and the earphones themselves are mostly made of lightweight premium polycarbonate with a matte finish. The featherweight like feel while being solid catches your attention immediately. The matte texture helps is adding friction to reduce slippage but makes it prone to acquiring dirt. In fact, just after a few minutes of use, we would see stains on the charging case when placed on the table at a coffee shop. It is easy to clean but it may be a concern for some.

There are proximity sensors that detect if the earphones have been worn or taken off the user’s ears. Beside it is the drivers that are covered by the Silicone cups. The cups themselves are thin yet thick enough to be sturdy and not easily torn or break.

The  Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphone is designed with earphones with a long neck or stem that is said to make the microphones nearer to the mouth of the user for improved microphone reception. On top of the earphone's head is an LED indicator light for each of the left and right earphones.

The charging case has a U shaped design with the top hatch on top, a USB Type-C port at the bottom, an LED light indicator in front, and a pairing button on the right side.

The earphones themselves have 100mAh capacity that lasts for around 10 hours of continuous play.

At the bottom of the case is the USB Type-C where it charges from 0 to 100 around two hours.

Surprisingly great sound quality for its price!

When compared to similarly priced competitors, the Mi  Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphone produces surprisingly great sound quality for its price. The sound produced is meaty (with power) and deep (wide range), a larger than average sound stage, decent clarity and decent separation.

The mids, trebles and bass are well balanced too. Sound Quality is not audiophile-grade but it can compete with wireless earphones that are priced higher than it asks for.

Pairing the Mi True Wireless Earphone can be cumbersome at first as you have to press and hold the pairing button on the right side of the case until the Mi True Wireless Earphone is scannable via Bluetooth by nearby devices. 
You will have to repeat the above process each time you pair it to a new device. After the initial set-up, you can directly connect to it without a hitch.


The effective range of the earphones to the connected device is around 10 feet depending on the obstruction between the earphones and the paired device.

Quick thoughts

Small and lightweight
Small and lightweight

Xiaomi has done it again and has produced compelling true wireless earphones for the price with its great sound quality that is complemented by the long stem microphones that improve microphone quality in a small package that lasts nearly more than a full workday. 



We highly recommend the Mi True Wireless Earphone if you want bang for the back sound quality with a decent build, long battery life at an affordable price of only PHP 3,490!
