To call the assistant, you must press the button twice. Using the built-in microphone, you can ask your question or ask to turn down or turn up the volume of the music.

To do this, hold both buttons SIMultaneously for a few seconds.
The gadget can be used individually. Each of them represents an individual independent device. To connect only one, take it out of the case and find it in the list of connected Bluetooth devices. Use our instruction to connect the Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earbuds above.

The shape of the “head” of the earphone is a bit like AirPods, which is suggestive. Mi TW Earphones 2 Basic will also fit comfortably in the ears.
However, the base has a completely different shape, which affects ergonomics. The headphones are really comfortable to be in all day long. I had a feeling that the right one might fall out, I wanted to correct it periodically. But never fell out, even if you shake your head.

Package contents Mi TW Earphones 2 Basic
Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Basic (Mi Air 2 SE) outperforms the older model in many respects, but not in sound. Therefore, this is somewhat an improved version, somewhat truncated.
When choosing this Bluetooth headset, it should be borne in mind that it is more suitable for listening to music than for telephone conversations. Because under certain conditions (for example, on a noisy street), the surrounding sound can interrupt, and the interlocutor will not be heard well enough. In room. OK.
A quieter sound can also be an advantage if you are choosing low-volume headphones for your child.
At the same time, Mi Air 2 SE True Wireless Earphones Basic remains a good option for value for money, with a pleasant sound for pop and dance genres and high battery life up to 20 hours with a recharge in a case.

My user data: up to 9 hours on a single charge, total autonomy. More than 20 hours.
Discharging Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Basic was not an easy task.
In normal user mode, a single charge was enough for 9 hours. I listened to music, watched videos on YouTube, talked on the phone several times, periodically turned off the music and just sat in silence, but with headphones on. In general, everything is like in life.
If you listen to music continuously: in 2 hours the headphones were discharged by 30%. Thus, we can assume that when listening to tracks continuously, one charge should be enough for about 7 hours.
Because The charge turned out to be too much, experimentally I managed to completely discharge and charge the headphones using the case 2 times. The headphones are partially charged the third time.
For the first 10-15 minutes in the Mi TW Earphone 2 Basic case, it charges 50%.
In 20 min. By 70%, 40 min. 80%, 50 min. 100%.

Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Basic is compatible with both Android smartphones and iPhones. The advantage, of course, is with Xiaomi smartphones. A window pops up on them with information about the state of charge of the case and each individual earphone. I was unable to test this function on a Xiaomi smartphone.

Microphone and connection quality
The microphone quality of the Xiaomi AirDots is surprisingly good. The recording from the smartphone is quite clear and understandable. But it is worth considering that the headphones are not designed to work with a PC, and indeed with something other than a smartphone.
Communication quality is decent. The declared range for Bluetooth 5.0 is 50 m, but this is provided that the source device also supports this version of the protocol. Most modern devices in the entry and middle price range, for which Xiaomi AirDots are designed, support a maximum of Bluetooth 4.2. But even this is enough for a comfortable reception throughout the apartment (medium, again, in size).
Xiaomi Mi AirDots in ear

Xiaomi AirDots review. Inexpensive wireless Bluetooth headphones
Xiaomi AirDots are completely wireless, inexpensive in-ear Bluetooth headphones. Released in the company’s traditional white color and laconic design with the subheading Youth Edition. Fully wireless headphones are really aimed at young people, because they are part of a very trendy and even hype sphere of the audio market, they look quite stylish and, most importantly, are significantly cheaper than most competitors.
Xiaomi Mi AirDots packaging
Price; Secure fit in the ear; Confident connection.
Battery life; Quality of materials; Sound quality.
Xiaomi AirDots are made of plastic and rubber, the same materials are used in the charging case. Not “premium”, but visually pleasing. No sharp corners or rough edges.
Xiaomi Mi AirDots Unboxing
Xiaomi AirDots are packaged in a stylish but SIMple white cardboard box with a picture of the package on the front. Inside we see a separate case and headphones in a tight rubber holder. The box also contains warranty documents, a brief instruction, a cardboard card with frequency response (apparently, not for all markets), a charging cable for the case and a pair of replaceable ear pads, the first pair is already on. There is no adapter included, but the option from most smartphones will do.
Xiaomi AirDots generally work as long as stated by the manufacturer. 3-4 hours from a single charge, and given that you can “carry” 3 more full charging cycles in the case, even active listening should be enough for a day.
Xiaomi AirDots sound good for their price.
You shouldn’t expect a clean and detailed sound. But the bass is quite palpable, the middle is readable, there are no very unpleasant distortions at the top either.
Xiaomi AirDots are inexpensive fully wireless earbuds that are worth the money.
Price. Good for the money (from 43). Xiaomi continues to follow this rule; Comfort. The earbuds sit securely in the ear, do not get bored quickly. Connection quality. Confidently keep in touch with a smartphone without artifacts and stuttering, Bluetooth 5.0 theoretically “hits” at 50 m; The design, of course, is not for everybody, but they look “stylish, fashionable, youthful”; Autonomy: about 3 hours on a single charge and up to 12 hours with a case, quite an average value for the market
The sound quality would be higher, even with an eye to the price; Audio out of sync when watching a video from 1 to 5 seconds. Narrows the scope of the model to listening to music / radio and answering calls. Build quality. It’s not terrible, but there are fears that the headphones will not last for many years.

Xiaomi Redmi AirDots (Mi True Wireless Earbuds Basic)
The Redmi AirDots have 7.2mm drivers and can deliver decent audio given the compact form factor. I found the bass to be quite pleasant, although not quite as rich. The stage is a bit thin, but a lot can be forgiven for the money.
But with voice calls, the situation is rather sad, microphones do not pick up the voice well. No noise cancellation, but the design allows you to cut off some of the external noise.
