Xiaomi subsidiary Redmi released its latest Air Dots S TWS earbuds in China earlier today. The new model does not bring any visual changes but offers a new mono sound output mode which can split the two earbuds as separate receivers. The Air Dots S are also touted to offer better sound transmission rates despite the fact they still rely on Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity just like their predecessors. There’s also a new low-latency game mode.
The rest of the specs are identical to last year’s Air Dots including 7.2mm drivers, DSP noise-canceling for calls and touch controls for music and voice assistant toggling. Battery life is rated at 4 hours on a single charge while the charging case extends it to 12 hours. The Air Dots S are also IPX4 compliant meaning they are splash resistant.
Pricing for the Redmi Air Dots S is CNY 99 ($14/€13) and sales are already underway in China. International availability will likely follow later this year.
