Xiaomi has transformed from just a smartphone maker into a technology brand. From power banks to air purifiers, there is no stopping the Chinese giant. It has just announced a new sports Bluetooth headset with a not so innovative name, the Mi Sports Bluetooth Headset.
The earbuds look very neat and offer a loop so to secure them around your earlobes. Yes, they are connected with a wire so they will be much more secure. In terms of weight they weigh at just 17.8gms and a 110mAh battery which is said to offer 7-hours of battery backup. It comes with Bluetooth 4.1 along with A2DP and it can be paired with up to two devices at the same time.

They are splash resistant with an IPx4 rating so a bit of sweat and light rain will not damage it. The company says that it has the capacity to operate in temperature range of -20°C to 70°C, but we doubt anyone would listen to music at those extreme temperatures.
The Mi Sports Bluetooth headset will come in two colour options, black and white and are priced at 149 CNY which is about Rs 1,500. They will come with five ear tips as well. No word if the company will launch the product in India as of yet.
