Same design with tiny changes

In terms of design, the Mi TWS Earbuds Basic 2S haven’t changed too much. We still have here an Earbud design completely wrapped in black.

Only the back, where the button is usually located, is now a glossy touch surface. Not much actually changes in terms of weight, they are said to weigh only 0.2 g more, which most wearers probably won’t be able to notice.

Now with USB-C & 600 mAh charging box

However, there are innovations in the charging options and battery capacity. Not only do the Earbuds now charge with USB-C (USB-C fanatic Alex is happy), but the charging box now has 600 mAh instead of 300 mAh. Thus, you can probably charge the headphones a whole two times more.

Once again, 7.2 mm dynamic drivers are used here, which we already had in the Redmi AirDots 2. So we can assume a similar sound here. However, we now also find a gaming mode here, which is supposed to significantly reduce the latency of the headphones. Thus, games and videos should have a much better sound-image synchronization.

Modern touch control & wear recognition

A completely new feature is the touch control of the headphones, which replaces the previous button control. You can use it to pause playback, accept/reject a call, activate a voice assistant or turn on the game mode. There is no mention of skipping tracks or changing the volume, but this was also not available in the predecessor.

Additionally, there is now also a wear detection, which pauses the playback when you take off the headphones and accordingly also starts again when you put them on. A feature that is not really present in the low-price segment.

A pop-up is also supposed to pop up on current MIUI devices, where you can see the current battery status of the headphones and charging box.

Assessment

No big presentation or announcement has been made for the headphones so far, but you can already order them and you can also already find an EU declaration of conformity on Xiaomi’s website. This also speaks for a release in the European market and with around $20 we are also in the usual price segment of the AirDots. The innovations modernize the headphones and complement the already good base. More information about the headphones can be found in our review of the AirDots 2. What do you think of the Mi True Wireless Earbuds Basic 2S?
