Ergonomics, the convenience of use

less than a month
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..
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
less than a month
I bought these headphones for my son as a gift., having previously tested on your phone Samsung galaxy note 10+. The sound quality is just fire., at the same time, my branded wireless ones are inferior in sound quality (sadly, but the fact). hold more 3 hours. I am considering purchasing a second pair for myself. I have not tried to talk on them., but they seem to support the function
I don't know what's cooler - the price or the sound)))) but without a doubt it's the best investment you've ever made 2 thousand rubles
a few months
For their money (bought for 1270r.) normal sound (yes, emphasis on low frequencies, but also averages with tops more or less) Case for me, small neat. To my smart- galaxy s9 connected immediately and without problems. These are my first TWS headphones., maybe there are better and more interesting for the money, but I still don't regret buying them.
Did a little experiment- called a friend using them as a headset (didn't tell him about it) After a minute of conversation, he asked why they heard me like from a f#opy)) In general, the microphone here is so-so. After a while, they seem to fall out., but it's not. They sit firmly in the ears.
I took them for consumption (what a nasty word) YouTube content, movies online yes sometimes listen to music on the go. For these tasks just right.
Summarizing all of the above - redmi airdots 2 great for first time wireless earbuds, or if you are not too demanding on the materials and quality of the microphone.
Headphones justify their money on 100%, but there are shortcomings that will seem critical to someone. You draw conclusions.Read more:
