Good sound but quality has room to improve
Reviewed in the United States on July 30, 2021
1. 4 stars for the sound quality. Sound quality is pretty good. But it does not seem able to auto adjust the sound based on environment. I think my Apple air pods can do that.
2. 2 stars for the appearance. It looks ugly in the real life. It is bulky, boy just ugly, cheap looking. The charging battery case feels cheap. I have small ears and I am short. I feel like carrying two mini hammers. My Apple AirPods look much better and people don’t seem notice them as much as the XiaoMi pods.
3. 0 stars for dropping sounds. My 30 minutes walk, 15 mins into walking and listening my audio book, dropped sound 10 times~ when it drops sound, it does not pause the audio book, I have to not only resume the pods, but also play back the audio book 10 seconds, when I had to repeatedly do that, it became annoying. Then I switched to Apple AirPods, smooth play for the next 15 minutes, no problem at all. I want to add this though - it seems work well when I sit at my desk. Sound dropping only occurs when walking and listening. I will need to try using it on treadmill and rowing machine to see about the sound dropping. If it does, I will certainly return the XiaoMi Pods.
