Xiaomi Redmi AirDots, Funcl W1 or Hoco E26 Plus … have compact designs like AirPods but are cheaper, under a million.
Xiaomi Redmi AirDots (VND 550,000)
As Xiaomi’s new generation True Wireless wireless headphones, the Redmi AirDots have a different appearance from the predecessor. The biggest change in the design is the use of physical buttons to control instead of the touch surface.
Like the AirPods, the Redmi AirDots are compact and can be independently connected to smartphones via Bluetooth 5.0 and the Realtek 8763 chip. Xiaomi’s headphones have a battery life of four hours, which is 12 hours less than AirPods and a charging box.
Funcl W1 (VND 530,000)
Taiwan’s W1 attracted attention since it was a venture capital project on Kickstarter. The case design and structure of this True Wireless headset is slightly different from AirPods but still portable with two wireless ears, completely separate from each other.
The sound quality of the W1 is quite good compared to the True Wireless earphones at the same price range, but not equal to the traditional wired In-ear headphones. Battery life is more than four hours and the total usage time when used with the charging case is nearly 18 hours.
Hoco E26 Plus (750,000 VND)
In terms of appearance, the product of Chinese accessory manufacturer Hoco is most similar to the AirPods, from cases to headphones. It also doesn’t use the In-ear design like most other True Wireless headphones on the market. Even the charging port uses the Lightning standard with Apple AirPods and iPhone.
However, the battery life of the E26 Plus is inferior to Airpods when it is just over 2 hours. The battery case only increases the usage time for about 6 to 8 hours.
