Xiaomi announces new products every now and then but there are some products that are not kept exclusive to its home country. One of these products is earphones and the company has now launched new in-ear headphones in its Piston series named ‘Piston 3 Pro’. The company has not announced the availability of the earphones for other countries but it will go on sale in China from Friday.
The Xiaomi Piston 3 Pro earphones have been priced at CNY 149 (roughly Rs. 1,500) and will be shipping with four different sizes of ear plugs. The earphones have a CNC diamond-cut aluminium sound chamber with an anodised surface and a CD pattern engraved design, as pointed out by Gizmo China. Xiaomi Piston 3 Pro earphones make use of a “Graphene diaphragm,” which allows for more powerful double coils along with the moving piston to produce more natural sounds, the company says on its official product page.
The earphones come with three in-line control buttons to play, pause, and change tracks. The 1.25-metre wire on the Xiaomi Piston 3 Pro earphones has a matte finish but the company has not made it flat to give a tangle-free experience. The earphones can be expected to be durable as the company claims that the earphones have gone through 700 quality tests that were harsher than the industry standard. The earphones weigh in at 17 grams, have an impedance of 32 Ohms, a frequency range of 20-40KHz and sport a 3.5mm jack. They come with 3 silicone ear buds and a travel bag.
The company launched its Piston in-ear headphones in India in 2014 and the new entrant in the series might as well make its way to India eventually but there is no word on Indian release of the earphones just as yet.
