Last but not least, "special 7.2mm three magnetic coils" chamber is supposed to take care of the deeper lows for an improved audio experience.
The AirDots have a battery life of up to four hours, which can be extended to five if you listen with just one of the earbuds. The headset can play music up to 4 hours and there is a charging box that comes along with the device which can charge the headset for 12 hours. Chinese manufacturers are notorious for the latter and one would expect someone like Xiaomi to once again copy those designs and products.
The touch controls can be used for a variety of functions.
Sources also suggest that the AirPods 2 could support Siri and be water-resistant, in addition to releasing with the promised, yet evasive, wireless charging case, but none of those reports have been confirmed.

Unfortunately, no news yet of global availability but Xiaomi does have some events scheduled this week so that may still happen. Rumors are circulating about the possibility of the company increasing its presence in the US. We'll have to wait and see.
While the Chinese tech company's AirDots are unlikely to match Apple's technology when it comes to sound quality, with a price tag of under $30, they may capture a sizable market.
