The Chinese electronics manufacturer Xiaomi has launched its AirDots earbuds in China today which go against the Apple Airpods and offer similar functionality. Unfortunately, no news yet of worldwide availability but Xiaomi does have some events scheduled this week so that may still happen. If this sounds like the long-promised attempt to officially enter the USA market with more than a direct-sale accessory site, it's because that might be it.

We're looking at earbuds that seem to fit snugly inside your ear, and which recharge wirelessly via a carrying case, just like the AirPods.

The employee added that the firm threatened to reduce their severance pay should they resign from their jobs. In the video, which has been deleted, a topless man can be seen standing in the middle of a room.

Xiaomi also made the AirDots button-less by providing a touch panel on the exterior surface to control volume, answer calls, or mute them in the middle of the conversation by tapping on the buds twice, for instance. The AirDots are digital assistant enabled when paired with a Xiaomi smartphone, such as the Mi 8.

Moreover, the headset will get charged automatically when put into the charging box and will also shut down automatically after placing inside it. They also feature "special 7.2mm three magnetic coils" to provide more bass and a better overall sound quality. They'd likely still do so at $50. The Chinese company has outgrown that inclination and while its new Mi AirDots might sound like the AirPods, they are thankfully quite far from being cheap clones. Despite their compact size, the wireless earbuds feature noise cancellation. Additionally, the headset will be able to play music for up to 4 hours, and they will ship with a case which will charge these for up to 12 hours.

Named the "AirDots", the true wireless in-ears look to share numerous same features with the AirPods, including support for Bluetooth 5.0, tappable controls on the casing, and a portable charging case.
