Xiaomi had already launched the Mi Bluetooth 4.1 earphone in China, but as of now it is not yet available in India. The Mi BT earphone is a light weight earphone that comes in Black and White color options.

Unboxing
The white box pack is pretty small and inside you will find the Mi Bluetooth earphone, data cable, user guide (it is in Chinese language) and 2 extra rubber ear plug with attached hook.

Design
The earphone looks really cool. I got the black color version (with matte finish) for the review. Mi Bluetooth earphone has got a simple design that looks quite elegant and pretty light weight at just about 7 grams with built in battery. You will hardly feel it when you wear it.

On the tip you will find the micro USB port to charge up this earphone and that also includes the microphone. Just above the micro USB port, on the front, there is a LED indicator. A single button is placed on the top. There are in total 3 ear plugs with hook, use the one that fits well and is comfortable.

Usage
Press and hold the button for few seconds to power on – you will see the Blue LED lighting up. Press and hold button for few seconds to switch off – you will see the Red LED glowing and then it will shut off.

To enter pairing mode you will need to press and hold and keep holding until you see the Blue LED blinking continuously. Pairing is simple, you will get some Chinese text – that is actually the Mi earphone, pair it and you can change the text on your smartphone to English.

After pairing double press the button to dial last number, single press to cancel the call, press and hold for a while to switch to next song when using media player.

Performance
This device is using BT 4.1. The range is up to 10 meters. Sound quality is pretty impressive. The ear plug with hook fits well but not fully secure; the earphone could fall out if you jerk your head slightly. Sound loudness is okay (decent enough), you can control that using your smartphone.

There is voice notification, however it’s in Chinese language. This earphone has not yet been released in India and the one that you can order online will most likely be a Chinese version. So far I could not find the English update for the same.

Battery
The built in battery can be fully charged in less than 2 hours and gives up to 5 hours of talk time and up to 180 hours of standby time. For my kind of usage I am getting almost 2 days of battery backup.

Verdict
The Mi Bluetooth 4.1 earphone is no doubt a very good earphone that looks amazing beautiful, lightweight and unique. This earphone is not available in India, however in case you are interested you can get it from Banggood.com website.

Mi Earphone is available banggood.com for $16.59 (approx ₹1,096).

  1. Hi Gogi sir,

    I have just bought this Mi bluetooth earphone in China.
    Couldn’t find any detailed English user guide apart from Gogi.in.
    Thank you so much for that.

    I have a question, as mentioned by you this earphone supports bluetooth v 4.1.
    But, my iPhone 6 plus only supports bluetooth v 4.0.
    I am facing difficulties while pairing with my iPhone.

    Could you please suggest?

  2. Mr Rana txx for review of this BT set..as usual Xiaomi will never release it in India..they seem to have lost interest in Indian market..Is there an equivalent headset available in Indian market..need one to pair with my Samsung tab s.

      It supports all Mi, Mi TV, Android devices.

  4. Hi, gogi sir wanted to ask you as I’m ordering the same from aliexpress after verifying from the seller about the authenticity.
    How is the fit and is it paining after hours of usage ? Does it feel like a cheap plastic biting the ear or is it comfortable ?

    1. Vivek, have mentioned in the review it is light weight, fit is okay, but it may fall out if you jerk your head.

It is available at 25.39$ ….means near about 1500rs … Plzz bro tell me .. Are there any hidden chrages to deliver it in india or not … Plzzz plzzz plzz reply it …

    1. You can order that though there I guess for under $30 you don’t need to pay customs but this one is heavy and there might be a custom charge for that.

      1. Yes bro, you may charge for customs if it feels heavy. So, think twice before buying. Last month I had to pay Rs. 8300 for UMI eMax, 370 & 690 for Wrist watches also. So, can’t guarantee for customs.

    2. Since its battery, you must have to pay customs charges.

      I recently got two diagun battery from aliexpress via dhl,900+ was the custom charges
