Until now Xiaomi has been able to conquer the market of TWS headphones but had never dared to propose a model equipped with ANC technology. His debut in this market, however, takes place in the best way, because it keeps faith with the excellent value for money that has always distinguished it from the most famous brands. Here, then, arrive on the global market the new Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Pro, which offer active noise cancellation, transparency mode, an exaggerated autonomy and a unique elegance but I do not want to spoil too much because I tell you everything within this review.
Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Pro
The First 200 orders will receive a free Xiaomi bag.
As always we start from the unboxing experience that in this case already announces how good awaits us with the actual product. Super elegant packaging, with a sturdy cardboard in black color inside which we find the following equipment:
- Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Pro;
- Manual multilingual including Italian:
- USB Type-C charging cable;
- 4 pairs of grommets of different sizes in soft silicone;
- Additional 3 pairs of different sized memory foam grommets.
And just about the memory foam grommets, I emphasize that these in addition to being more comfortable in the fit of the headphones, allow you to better convey the audio stream and thus improve the music listening experience, although these are less suitable for sports, because the sweat could compromise the elasticity but for sports activities you can always use the standard silicone grommets.
I have to make a further clarification, unfortunately negative, because the company does not declare any IPXX certification, so theoretically the Xiaomi earphones would not resist drops of rain or sweat, but personally I must say that I used them in activities where my sweating seemed a new Trevi Fountain, yet they came out unscathed.
Ok let’s start analyzing the charging case, which as shapes reminds other models already seen in Xiaomi, but here stands the beautiful matte black color as well as the fact that the materials to the touch are slightly rubberized, increasing the grip with the sleeve, avoiding falls. accidents. But above all, the elegance of black always remains immaculate because probably the company has used an anti dirt treatment, which in fact does not seem to settle on the surface. On the front we have a small monochromatic LED white, which indicates the possible charge of the battery, or if it remains fixed for five seconds then we do not need further charging, while if this flashes then it is time to work for charging.
We can view the status of the LED by opening the cover or by pressing the function button located on the right side of the socket. This button will also serve, if held down for a few seconds, to send in pairing the headphones, but if you have a smartphone with MIUI, none of this will be necessary as you will see an Apple-style pop-up, where you can also see in a precise way the percentage of remaining charge of each headset as well as the case itself.
Speaking of battery and autonomy, the charging box of the Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Pro, offers a 500 mAh unit that can be recharged in two ways: via Type-C cable that will be inserted into the input located at the bottom or wirelessly, helping in the positioning on the base, with the design of the charging lightning that is located on the back of the case, side where we can also admire the excellent and robust hinge opening the lid.
It takes about 1 hour for the full energy of the box that in turn allows charging the headphones for another 4 times. These instead integrate a 40 mAh battery that in fact gives about 6 hours of music listening in standard mode, getting about 30 full hours of use. There is also the fast charging, which with only 10 minutes will allow you to use for 90 minutes the headphones of Xiaomi. Very good values, but can not be improved, indeed if you take advantage of ANC mode and the best codec available, you must take into account that the autonomy of a single charge will take about 4 hours maximum.
Opening the sleeve you realize further the elegance and solid construction of this product. A super magnet will make well
The closure is firm, but above all the cover integrates the Hall sensor, which in fact makes immediately active the earphones of which it is the protector.
is no unwanted movement or creaking of the plastics and also the magnets that attract the earphones are very efficient
But the real stars are the earphones themselves, with an in-ear design but with a more tapered and less chubby shape than we were used to seeing in the Xiaomi ecosystem. Another design gem is the touch surface, which we find at the top of the drivers, coated with ceramic material, significantly increasing the responsiveness of the touch that I always found fast and responsive.
Despite the in-ear shape, the wearability of the Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Pro is pleasant and above all their stability is worthy of a premium product. Looking more closely at the headphones we can see the presence of the proximity sensor that will perform the function of automatic play/pause when we wear or remove the earphones from the ears.
also 3 microphones, one of which is dedicated to the reduction of wind and always by way of quality, are perfect metal nets that Xiaomi has used to protect microphone and drivers.
The same matte material and treated against dirt, wraps the entire structure of the earphones that offer dynamic drivers from 12 mm, which in turn return a clean and well-balanced sound, with particular efficiency in listening to the spoken word, as could be videos on Youtube or television series and / or movies
The connection is made by means of a Bluetooth 5.0 with excellent signal stability and a delay definitely reduced, although in gaming we may notice some limitations, especially with fast games such as fast-paced shooters etc. . Overall, however, we rely on the SBC / AAC codec but on some smartphones you can appreciate the quality of the LHDC codec (low latency and high-definition audio codec).

A small disappointment I experienced with the touch controls, which I emphasize to be responsive and accurate, due to the fact that these are limited to a few functions that can not be customized, since compared to the Chinese counterpart, we do not have an application available. The downside of this absence appears to be more than anything else the fact that we will never receive updates, although in the current state of things I do not think there is a need, if not in expanding the commands, maybe a triple touch etc. .
In particular we could give the following commands
- Double tap on one of the two earpieces: answer/close a call
- Double tap on the right earpiece: Play/Pause
- Double tap on left earpiece: call up the virtual assistant
- Long tap on either earpiece: Activate ANC mode and switch to transparency mode, wind noise cancellation and finally deactivate ANC.
Some fundamental commands are therefore absent, such as the skip of the music tracks and the volume control. A positive aspect, however, is the absence of voices in Chinese announcing the chosen mode, replaced by more immediate and understandable sounds.
ve already praised the sound quality from the drivers but I particularly appreciated the work done by the 3 microphones and the algorithm with which the headphones manage ambient noise. In the video review I show you just how, despite the chaos in the background, my voice is well recognised, being understandable and ringing even in quite extreme conditions. However, there is no master headset and so we could use the headphones independently of each other, but in this case it will not be possible to use the ANC function.
But how does the ANC function and its variants behave? As already mentioned, for the company this is the first example of headphones equipped with this technology and then did not want to overdo, allowing a reduction of up to -35 dB. Personally, I particularly appreciated the ANC in city traffic conditions, at the supermarket while in the car I
preferred to enable the transparency mode in which external noises are amplified during the use of headphones, allowing you to stay alert to what happens around us. The anti-wind mode instead could be useful on a bike, scooter etc. … in short, in conditions where there is a lot of wind or similar, as in the office in front of a fan to cool off from this hot hell.
From the efficiency of the individual reduction modes I was fully satisfied, especially if I think about the price at which these TWS headphones are sold. Moreover, the listening volume is quite powerful allowing us to isolate ourselves even without active ANC.
I can say without a shadow of a doubt that the Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Pro, apart from the long name to make it sound like a tongue twister, are the best headphones that so far the company has produced and in my opinion are positioned comfortably in the Top 5 of the best headphones with ANC on the market.
