Connecting Xiaomi Wireless Headphones to iPhone

Wireless earplugs from “Xiaomi” are very popular. They are stylish, fairly simple and reliable devices to use. Any of the models, be it Redmi AirDots, AirDots Pro, AirDots Pro 2, etc., can be a worthy replacement for more expensive headphones of this type. For example, the functionality of the Xiaomi Pro is comparable to that of the Apple Airpods.

The Pros boast attractive design, great sound, long battery life and Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). The value of ANC lies in the fact that the surrounding noise becomes inaudible, and the user can fully immerse themselves in the world of music or focus their attention on telephone conversations. Another huge advantage of the inexpensive AirDots Pro headphones over Airpods is the IPX4 waterproof rating and advanced touch controls. Taking into account the affordable price and impressive technical characteristics, many owners of iPhones instead of Airpods choose AirDots for themselves.
In order for the connection of the Xiaomi-headset to the iPhone to be successful, you need to know that it supports Bluetooth version 4.2 or higher. That is, the pairing will be possible with the models of iPhones and iPads that were released in 2014-2015. Use at least iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and up, and iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4 and newer tablets. If you have an iPhone 5s, then the “ears” from “Xiaomi” do not fit it.
Pairing Xiaomi AirDots with an Apple Phone or Tablet
Charge the batteries of these devices before pairing TWS headphones and Apple smartphone. Working Bluetooth modules, especially in search and pairing mode, require extra power. It is enough to put “dots” in a case for this, and put the iPhone on a wired or wireless charger. You don’t have to strive for the battery indicator to show 100%, half of the maximum level is enough for connection. Pairing AirDots with an Apple phone is almost as easy as connecting Airpods to an iPhone, although the process has its own quirks. To make everything work out the first time, follow the step by step steps that are described in the instructions.
Take the earbuds out of the charging case. They will turn on automatically.
Before pairing with an iPhone, AirDots must first establish a connection with each other. Therefore, turn off the headphones by pressing the touch or physical button (depending on the model) on each of the “dots”. When turning off, do not release the buttons for 3 seconds.
Turn AirDots back on. Press and hold the buttons at the same time for about 30 seconds. The LED indicators should flash first red, then white. Wait for two series of such signals to pass. This will mean that both earbuds are in pairing mode. You need to put them back in the charging case for about 5 seconds, and then take them out in order to connect them directly to the iPhone.
At this stage, you need a phone. Since AirDots are already prepared for pairing, open Settings, then Bluetooth on your iPhone and activate the wireless module. The smartphone starts searching for devices. Compatibility is the most decisive factor for successful detection, but we have already indicated above which models of Apple smartphones Xiaomi headphones work with. The line “Mi AirDots BASIC_R” or “Mi AirDots BASIC_L” will appear in the list of detected devices. Select her.
Perhaps such an entry will not be found in the list. Then the headphones need to be placed closer to the phone and the list of devices should be updated. In a pair of AirDots, the right earbud is the main one, so the new item in the list will be “Mi AirDots BASIC_R” (in fact, the device name may be different, not the same as in this example, it all depends on the headphone model). Click on it to start the connection. The indicator on the earbud will flash white while pairing is being established. Sometimes you need to enter a code to confirm the connection. Enter 0000.
When the process is complete, the indicator will turn white again and turn off. You can now use your headphones. Check the quality and, if necessary, adjust the sound settings.
After you manually connect the dots to your smartphone for the first time, they will automatically connect to it every time you take them out of the case. If there are problems with pairing, you will need to remove Mi AirDots BASIC_R from the list: click on the name, and then select “Forget this device” and repeat the steps described in the instructions again.
By the way, “AirDots” are connected not only in stereo, but also in mono mode, when only one earphone from a pair will be paired with the phone. This method of connection can be convenient in cases where complete isolation from ambient noise is not required. For example, on a busy street for greater safety, it is better to hear what is happening around. Another way of using AirDots significantly increases the battery life of the headphones: while one of them is in operation, the second is charged in the case, then the plugs are swapped. To pair only one of the two headphones, take out only the left AirDots from the charging case. Let the right one remain in the case.
Situations when the pairing between the headphones and the iPhone, as well as between the right and left dots, disappears from time to time. Then you have to do a reset and pair it again, in the order recommended in the detailed instructions given above.
In general, the compact budget earplugs “Xiaomi” or “Redmi” are a good choice for those who want to take advantage of modern wireless technology in their daily life, but do not yet decide to buy Apple Airpods of the first or second generation or more expensive Airpods Pro.
