The structure and features of the in-ear headphones pro

The state-of-the-art structure of the ear piece makes it easy for the driver to produce steadier sound. Every little detail in the song will be clear like the breathing technique of the singer etc.
  • In order to produce superior sound in the mid and bass range, the engineers have sandwiched an aerospace-grade metal composite layer in-between two PET layers.

  • Fine and detailed 0.14mm grains are added to provide a textured metallic luster similar to CD discs.
  • The microphone has a 58dB (A) signal to noise ratio. It provided better voice quality and reduced the noise interference. Even if the microphone is located little away from the user’s mouth, the quality of voice will be better. The wired remote has three buttons. These buttons can be used to answer the calls, playback music and adjust the volume.
  • The Kevlar fiber cable used for in the device is strong and break resistant. The braided sleeving is helpful in preventing the tangling. The end sections of the device are covered with TPE.

Cons of Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro:

  • Bulky structure: If you compare the headphones with the competitors in the market, you will find that the overall structure of the device is on the bulkier side. If they try a little but more on the design, it could have better exterior.
  • Bass is not up to the mark: The price of the headphones does not justify the level of bass they provide. If someone is going to spend that much on headphones, it is obvious to expect good bass range which is missing in the headphones.
  • Lack of audio details: It is very important for a music lover to be able to listen to the every single detail of the song. When you use these headphones, you may find some of the details missing in the songs which are not considered as a good selling point.
