A longtime ago, the CEO of POCO confirmed the arrival of the brand’s TWS headphones, although a lot of water has passed under the bridge since then. However, by now the POCO Pop Buds picture is much clearer and we’ve got a whole bunch of rumors about the design, specs, price and release!
Update 27/07: We’re back to talking about POCO’s headphones, this time with a new certification; and the launch is getting even closer. Find all the details directly at the end of the article.
POCO Pop Buds: the company launches a poll to choose the name of its TWS headphones
Hey POCO fans, couple of weeks ago we asked you which product we should bring next and you chose TWS (Earbuds). We’re happy to announce that we’re a step closer in making it a reality & we want your help in choosing a name for it. Vote and let’s know what we should call it.

The Asian company let users choose their preferred name for POCO’s first TWS headphones, resulting in Pop Buds winning. After that first sign, nothing: zero details and no news for the TWS headphones from Xia’s brand partneromi. Through an AMA posted on YouTube, Country Director Anuj Sharma has revealed a few more details about the earphones but nothing exhaustive. One thing is for sure, the headphones are expected to arrive during the second half of 2021 as per the multiple certifications.
POCO Pop Buds – Design and Features
Alright. Turns out the POCO Pop Buds will be a rebranded Redmi AirDots 3 Pro TWS (plus, they’d be launched as Redmi Buds 3 Pro in some markets). Have spotted them all on Bluetooth SIG certification website (model number TWSEJ01ZM).

The Bluetooth SIG certification has unveiled some details about POCO’s TWS headphones, yet it seems clear that no big news is to be expected. In fact, it looks like the POCO Pop Buds headphones will be a rebrand of the recently launched Redmi AirDots 3 Pro, which launched in China and is now also available in Italy as the Redmi Buds 3 Pro. All three products have the same model number TWSEJ01ZM.
However, if we can’t expect any difference in hardware and style, it’s likely that POCO’s version will come with a few small changes (such as a yellow color scheme, in the perfect style of the brand). As for the various features, expect a pair of TWS headphones with an in-ear design, 9mm drivers, pebble case with ric
arica wireless and ANC noise reduction technology up to 35 dB. The package should also include 69ms low-latency mode and Bluetooth 5.2 (as per the same certifications).
POCO could also launch headband head
brand’s first TWS may not be the only headphones coming to POCO: an Indian leaker has spotted the BIS certification of a model marked LYXQEJ05WM. This is a code that already identifies the Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Pro
headset, launched last February. As a result, it seems that the device might be returning to the Indian market in the form of a POCO-branded product.
At this point, it’s safe to assume that POCO’s headband headphones will have the same specifications as their Xiaomi cousins: so we can expect 10mm drivers, BT 5.0 connectivity, IPX5 type resistance, support for SBC and AAC codecs, ANC and ENC noise cancellation technologies (up to 25 dB). All powered by a 150 mAh battery, for about 20 hours of battery life.
Of course, it is not known if all the features will coincide, perhaps – as we speculated for the Pop Buds – these wireless headphones could be launched in a yellow color, in perfect POCO style.
Pop Buds – Price and release rumorsFor
few hours, yet another certification is available dedicated to the TWS headphones marked TWSEJ01ZM. Once again it’s the POCO Pop Buds and by now it’s clear that the debut is practically around the corner. Is August the right month? We’re waiting for confirmation from POCO and in the meantime we’d like to remind you that the Redmi Buds 3 Pro “twins” have arrived in Italy at a list price of €69.9: will this be the launch price for POCO’s first TWS headphones?
