Since all the smartphone companies are venturing into the true wireless segment, Redmi has also officially joined the race with the launch of its true wireless earbuds Redmi Earbuds S. This will be Redmi’s first product in the wireless audio category for the Indian market, although the company already have a few products of this category in the Chinese market for some time now.
Redmi Earbuds S: Pricing and Availability.

The device is available for sale on Mi.com, Amazon India, Mi Home Stores, and Mi Studio outlets. As per the latest information on lockdown 4.0 guidelines, the sale of non-essential goods has been resumed in the non-containment zones all across the country. Hence, interested prospects can buy Redmi Earbuds S from retail outlets as well.
Redmi Earbuds S: Features and Specifications.
Redmi Earbuds S is actually a newer and rebranded version of Redmi Airdots S which was launched by Redmi for the Chinese market in the month of April. Redmi Earbuds S has buttons instead of touch panels. But, given the price range, no one should complain about that. The buttons have many features attached to them. For e.g. the music system can be controlled with them or even the voice assistant of your smartphone can be activated with their help. Redmi Earbuds S will also provide environmental noise reduction. Both the earbuds are also capable of being used separately.
The Redmi Earbuds S use 7.2mm drivers. It has also managed to provide IPX 4 ratings for water and sweat resistance. The earbuds also support a low latency mode which is quite useful for gamers. The low latency mode reduces the latency to 122ms to deliver the best performance during your gaming adventures. These are also one of the lightest earbuds weighing only 4.1 grams each. On the connectivity front, the Redmi Earbuds S is loaded with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.
Battery performance is also quite good in this gadget. The company claims a battery life of up to 4 hours of playback on a single charge. If you combine it with the additional charges that the case can provide, then this time increases to 12 hours.
