Redmi AirDots S with improved connection stability for $16.58

Hey, guys! Just a heads up: The linked offer is already a bit older and the price of the gadget might have changed or it might not be available anymore.

The Redmi AirDots S are now available at GearBest Mid-year sale for only $16.58!

With the Redmi AirDots S Redmi releases new wireless in-ear headphones. This is an update of the Redmi AirDots, with improvements in connection stability. But a few days ago entries for two more models, the Redmi AirDots 2 and Redmi Sonicbass, have landed in the Bluetooth SIG database. What can the Redmi AirDots S do and when can I expect the other models?

Redmi AirDots S

The Redmi AirDots S are an update of the already existing Redmi AirDots. Xiaomi has already done a similar update with the Xiaomi Air 2S. It seems that Xiaomi is currently satisfied with her designs and only wants to improve them.

To improve the original AirDots, the connection type of the two receivers has been changed. While the connection with the predecessor still worked via a master-slave connection, they now work independently of each other. In a master-slave connection, one listener acts as master and passes the signal to the slave. By changing to an independent connection, the connection stability is increased, but it is also possible to use one of the listeners alone.

Furthermore, a game mode has been added to keep picture and sound synchronous. In this mode you can tap the handset three times. Realme Buds Air have a similar mode, which should reduce latency by up to 51%.

These were the changes compared to the previous model. In China they start with 99 Yuan for the same price as the Redmi AirDots. Converted this would be around $14. The import price is of course a bit higher and compared to the previous model they will be more expensive for a while.

Redmi AirDots 2 and Redmi SonicBass Wireless Earphones

About the two other headphones, the Redmi AirDots 2 and Redmi SonicBass, we don’t know much yet. They have appeared in database entries of the Bluetooth SIG, an interest group of various companies with interest in Bluetooth. What we do know is that both models are headphones with Bluetooth 5.

The Redmi AirDots 2 are probably a real successor of the Redmi AirDots. The name of course arouses this assumption, but the model number is also continued with the designation TWSEJ061LS.

The Redmi SonicBass are again a bigger secret. However, due to the model number INLYEJ02LS it can be assumed that these are not completely wireless headphones. These have always had “TWS” in their product name. Maybe these are headphones with a neck strap. However, it is not possible to say for sure what it is at the moment.

The question remains, when will the headphones be introduced? With the Redmi AirDots S it took one month after the entry until Redmi introduced them. But this time frame is not fixed and theoretically the release can come any time.

Are you convinced by the update of the Redmi AirDots or do you rather wait for the possible soon appearing successor of the Redmi AirDots 2? In any case I am curious what the Redmi SonicBass is all about.
