Comfortable headphones that are quickly forgotten
Even with the existence of a Pro model, the Xiaomi Buds 3 have nothing to be ashamed of since they have a few features in common and a similar look. They take the upper format to ensure good support during your sports sessions for example, and provide good comfort. They are also pleasant to wear on a daily basis, with only 4.6 grams on the scale, they will quickly be forgotten, and you will be able to enjoy them for a good few hours.
Moreover, the brand guarantees an autonomy of 7 hours without ANC, the case allows it to recover a total of 32 hours of use. The latter is also compatible with Qi wireless charging by induction. The headphones are also IP55 certified, which guarantees protection against splashes.
With a quieter environment with ANC
The Xiaomi Buds 3 have the merit of offering good passive isolation thanks to the tips provided, and it is complemented by active noise reduction. According to the manufacturer, it reduces external noise by up to 40 dB. This would reduce background noise by up to 99%. Three levels of active noise reduction are offered to adjust the level according to the environment.
On paper, the ANC will be far from reaching the level of more premium headphones, but will effectively eliminate some annoying noise, and will satisfy many users. A Transparency mode is also present to stay on the lookout for surrounding noise and especially people likely to talk to you.
On the audio side, the headphones have 10 mm diameter transducers. If Xiaomi specifies that they are capable of delivering Hi-Fi sound, here we do not find an LDAC codec or aptX, but the classic AAC and SBC codecs which do not make it possible to offer a bit rate beyond 400 kb/s. However, the sound reproduction seems to be of good quality.
