Xiaomi Haylou GT1 vs Airpods 2: Specs

Let's start with a parameter comparison. The most valuable thing about airpods2 is the H1 chip and a lot of sensors. Do you use Bluetooth 5.0? I don't know. Two headphones from the parameters, in fact, each has its own victory or defeat, for example, although the total battery life is only half of the airpods2, but the GT1 is waterproof, the key GT1 price is really low ~!

Xiaomi Haylou GT1 vs Airpods 2: Charging box appearance

Airpods2 usually I protect very well, always with a condom, we all know that its shell is easy to scrape, the 9 yuan condom I bought is still very practical ~, the black frosted shell used by GT1, the texture of airpods2 is obviously a lot better than a more grade feeling., GT1 looks like a bargain. In addition, Xiaomi Haylou GT1 is still using the old micro USB, charging to distinguish between the pros and cons of some trouble, airpods2 is much more convenient.

Xiaomi Haylou GT1 vs Airpods 2: Headset appearance

Airpods 2 headphones have a long tail, which is good for increasing battery capacity, as can be seen from the comparison of parameters, but there is also a bad thing, that is, when wearing, the tail will be a little uncomfortable close to the face; GT1 is a more common "bean" shape, the appearance design is relatively simple, no redundant decoration. Both headphones are operated in touch mode, the sensitivity is similar, and both can call siri, normally, but there are many obvious aspects of airpods. In addition to touch outbound siri, you can also say "hey,siri" directly, which is more convenient.

Both are plastic in appearance, but airpods2 looks taller, perhaps because of the use of white glossy treatment, but the problem is that it is not secure in the ear, and users with large ear holes may have the possibility of sliding out. GT1 frosted material praise, is conducive to increase the friction resistance with the skin, for wearing stability has a certain improvement. 

Xiaomi Haylou GT1 vs Airpods 2: Bluetooth connection

GT1 uses "take out the headphones and connect them". When you remove the headphones, the headphones will be automatically matched left and right, and automatically matched with the mobile phone. Airpods2 is open and connected, so airpods2 is more convenient. However, the right unit of GT1 is the main ear, which can only be used for independent calls with the right ear. Airpods2 has no limitation. Any one of them can be used alone. This function is regarded as the cool techs of airpods2. At present, no brand can imitate it. But. As a right-handed person, I feel that this difference does not seem to make much sense to me personally. True wireless headphones are currently more common problem of disconnection between left and right ears, GT1 also has this situation, but only occasionally, generally will not affect the listening experience, because soon can automatically connect back, airpods2 is very good, has never been broken!

Xiaomi Haylou GT1 vs Airpods 2: Wearing

Many users on the Internet said that airpods2 is not stable, the main reason is half into the ear is one aspect, in addition, just mentioned the smooth shell, I also have a slight feeling when I wear it, anyway, every time I wear it, From time to time, my attention will pay attention to whether the wear is stable, or sometimes in order to wear more safely, often plug in with my fingers. GT1 is more comfortable to wear, basically the whole process is safe. It's easier to use. 

Xiaomi Haylou GT1 vs Airpods 2: Sound quality

Xiaomi Haylou GT1 vs Airpods 2

The sound quality of airpods2 is basically the same as that of the first generation. It is only a little better than the wired Xiaobai, the sound stereo feeling grab, but the distortion is more obvious, especially in the high and low frequency, the high frequency of airpods2 is relatively dark, the low frequency does not go, point to the feeling that stop. The intermediate frequency is relatively better than the high and low frequencies, so it is suitable for listening to human voices.GT1 will be less transparent than airpods2, but it is acceptable. I am pleased that Haylou GT1 has a deep low frequency dive, a faster transient response, a good sense of music, and a better sense of listening to pop music. 


The price gap between HAYLOU GT1 and airpods2 is quite wide. Which is more worth buying? I think so. In fact, in terms of performance, the two are basically at the same level, but the experience of airpods2 will be better. For example, if you take off your headphones, you will automatically stop playing music, and if you talk about it with your mouth, you can call siri, directly. Any headset can be used alone, and so on, but I don't think these features are the rigid requirements of every fruit powder. If you don't care so much about these features, it is obvious that the Haylou GT1 is more cost-effective and cost-effective. After all, as long as the price of airpods2 1/10., the sound quality is better than airpods2.
