Wireless Headset: Redmi AirDots
Wireless headsets are getting better and better while also getting smaller. Someday they will be small stick on patches for you temple. Any smaller and you will lose them in your ears. I find ear buds make my ears hurt but the included small nubs were surprisingly comfortable. I was fine using them for a couple of hours. They will not fall out if inserted properly. Although be careful not to drop one in the grass. 🙂 You can check out there wireless headset here.https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=20&v=nAvo49ya_RE

Wireless Headset: Unboxing
The box is all in Chinese so I can’t say much on it. Although the quality does reflect the cheap price. The instructions are in Chinese as well.
Build Quality for the wireless headset
The build quality is pretty good. They don’t feel cheap and the case feels well formed with a solid hinge. It’s made from ABS which I know from my 3D printing is a tough plastic. How long they last remains to be seen. I’ve only had them for a couple of weeks with them but the hinge still feels strong.
It has tiny pins inside the mold of the case which make contact with the charge pads. It keeps a good connection through magnets which in turn keeps them from falling out of the case. The dots come with the clingy plastic to protect it from scratches. They also cover the charge pads so you need to remove them before they will charge.
Wireless Headset Connectivity
The AirDots has Bluetooth 5.0 which is great for a sub $30 pair of wireless Earbuds. Being 2 times faster Bluetooth 5 gives faster transfer and makes it clear and crisp for music and voice. 5.0 also give almost 2 times the range of 4.2 but my phone is not far from me at any point so I’m not concerned there. Just removing them from the case will cause them to connect to you phone. Pressing the button once will play the last media played. Pressing one while the phone is ringing will cause it to answer the call. Press and hold to send the call to voicemail or skip to the next ring. Pressing twice will activate whichever voice assistance you use. (Siri on iphone)
Surprisingly the AirDots have good sound quality for such tiny speakers. I’m amazed at how well the bass sounds. They have noise cancellation that seems to work well, although I’m not sure how much of this is from them being so snug in my ears. Almost like wearing earplugs. Although the sound quality is good the volume seems lacking. My phone seems okay, but not as loud as I would like. Great for kids if you are concerned for their hearing though. When connected to my laptop it seems much louder although less crisp. I’m no audio expert so I’m unsure why.

Wireless Headset Conclusion
The AirDots are a great deal for the money. They are under $30. So much so I don’t see how companies like Apple can justify the prices. Apple didn’t invent Bluetooth 5 so they have no justification for their prices in my eyes. There is a lot of wireless earbuds on the market today thanks to the Chinese market and the internet. Competition is great for the consumer and you can’t go wrong with these earbuds. Being cheap is a good thing because they are so small I know my kids will lose one eventually. I downloaded the App from Google Play store but it didn’t seem to do anything except annoy me with popup ads. I have heard people lose connection between the earbuds but holding down the button for about 20 seconds will reset them and they should reconnect. They are waterproof but the charge case isn’t so be careful not to jump in the pool with them in your pocket.
So if you are in the market for some wireless earbuds then head over to Gearbest and pick these up.
