Design

The earphone design is unique, minimalistic and light weight. This earphone is also known as ‘Mi Piston Air‘, it is called the capsule because it looks like one. Mi Capsule earphone is curved at 45 degree angle for comfort.

The ear buds are made of hypoallergenic silicon material and even the other end has a soft material. The earphone is different and there is a different procedure to wear it. The curved end will go into the ear hole and the other end will rest outside.

I found it comfortable to wear and it also blocked the ear thereby blocking background noise to some extent. Now this earphone fit may vary from person to person, some may feel it comfortable, others may not.

This design actually helps the earphone stay intact in your ear. If you love to enjoy your favorite music while walking or jogging, and often find that your earphone falls out from your ear, the Mi Capsule would be a better option in such a situation.

This earphone also comes with 3 button controller with mic. You can use this to control the volume, receive / cancel call and control media player.

Capsule Earphone Performance

Bass and Treble output was good. I compared this earphone with the Mi Basic, LeEco In-Ear Headphones and the Mi  in-ear Headphones Pro. This Capsule earphone is slightly better than the Mi Basic earphone but not as good as the LeEco and the Mi Headphones Pro.

Verdict

The Mi Capsule is a good earphone but not the best, Mi Headphones pro is a better option though that will cost you around Rs. 1800. If you have limited budget you can buy the Mi Capsule earphone.

Rating 3.5 out of 5.

Mi Capsule earphone is available on Mi.com website and you can also buy this from Banggood.com for about the same price, you don’t need to pay custom duty (if you buy from international stores).
