- Redmi has launched two new audio products in India.
- The devices are the Redmi SonicBass neckband earphones and the Redmi Earbuds 2C.
- Expect to pay promotional pricing of under ~$20 each for the products.
Whether it’s smartphones, laptops, or wearables, Xiaomi’s Redmi sub-brand is well-known for delivering excellent value for money for the most part. The firm is definitely living up to that ethos with its latest audio announcements for India.
Xiaomi’s brand has launched the Bluetooth 5-toting Redmi SonicBass wireless earphones and Redmi Earbuds 2C. Starting with the former product, you’re looking at a neckband design with magnetic earbuds and an IPx4 rating for splash- and sweat-proof design.
The SonicBass earphones also offer dual pairing functionality, dual mics with noise cancellation, a multi-function button, and up to 12 hours of music playback (taking two hours to charge via microUSB). Check out the design below.
Meanwhile, the Redmi Earbuds 2C looks similar to the well-received Redmi Earbuds S in terms of earbud and case design. You’re getting an IPX4 rating here too, as well as noise cancellation, a multi-function button, and up to 12 hours of playback with the charging case (which itself takes two hours to charge via microUSB).
The Redmi SonicBass earphones are available for Rs 1,299 (~$18) and come in black or blue color choices. However, the company is offering a promotional price of Rs 999 (~$14). Need some true wireless goodness in your life? Then the Redmi Earbuds 2C will retail for Rs 1,499 (~$20), but has a promotional price of Rs 1,299 (~$18). There’s no word on how long the promotional pricing will last.
The two devices will be available via Mi.com, Mi Home stores, and offline retail partners. However, the SonicBass earphones will be sold via Flipkart, while Amazon India has dibs on the Earbuds 2C. Both devices will be available from today (October 7).
