Price, assembly, dimensions.


Uncomfortable fit in the ear, ambrochury tried to change: sits well with little ones, because. can get deeper, but the sound is wrong (without low, sounds quieter), sits incomprehensibly with average, but manages to get the right sound. I don't think, what a special auricle, rather a feature of the shape of the earpiece.


Good for its price, but you have to order others..


Yuri Ch.


Headphones are normal, inexpensive, sound quality is good for this price


Microphone bottom full, hear everything around, but not the one who talks about them


This version allegedly added noise reduction at the microphone, but not better than the previous version. I do not hear you, but you can hear everything around



User Experience:

Купила данные наушники ребёнку в подарок, предварительно затестив на своём телефоне Samsung galaxy note 10+. Качество звука просто огонь, при этом мои фирменные беспроводные уступают по качеству звука (печально, но факт). Держат больше 3 hours. Рассматриваю приобретение второй пары для себя Разговаривать по ним не пробовала, но вроде функцию поддерживают


Ни одного


Я не знаю что круче -цена или звук)))) но без сомнения это лучшее вложение денег до 2 thousand rubles


Сергей ХХХ

User Experience:

несколько месяцев


За свои деньги (покупал за 1270р.) Нормальный звук (yes, упор на низкие частоты, но и средние с верхами более менее) Кейс как по мне, маленький аккуратный. К моему смарту- galaxy s9 подключились сразу и без проблем. Это мои первые TWS наушники, может и есть лучше и интереснее за эти деньги, но я всё равно не жалею что купил их.


Провёл маленький эксперимент- позвонил другу используя их как гарнитуру (ему об этом не сказал) После минуты разговора он спросил почему меня слышно как из ж#опы)) Вообщем микрофон тут так себе. Спустя некоторое время кажется что они выпадают, но это не так. Сидят в ушах крепко.


Я брал их для потребления (какое мерзкое слово) контента YouTube, кино онлайн да иногда музыку послушать на ходу. Для этих задач в самый раз.


Резюмируя всё вышесказанное – redmi airdots 2 отлично подойдут в качестве первых беспроводных наушников, либо если вы не слишком требовательны к материалам и качеству микрофона.
