Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro hands on review: a smaller appearance and interactive experience

ByAdan Flannigan 2019-10-24 2007

Xiaomi sub-band Movboi introduced the second generation of TicPods TWS earphones. TicPods 2 and 2 Pro can be controlled by head movements. Connect to the Bluetooth 5.0 and aptX / AAC codecs and 13mm speakers make the sound quality is even better. There is also Qualcomm CVC active noise reduction technology that will be especially useful during conversations.

Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro 

Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro appearance and design

The charging box is smaller than the previous generation of TicPods. The capsule-shaped box shell is made of PVC plastic material, or polished matte texture, not easy to leave fingerprints and more refined.

The charging port has been changed from the previous Micro USB to a type-C excuse, which is more convenient, and no need to prepare a redundant data line.

Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro is available three colors: blue, pink and white. The open-ended structure looks like "AirPods". This design makes the headphones lighter and can also compress the volume occupied in the charging box, so that the box can be smaller; but the Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro feels better. AirPods is a bit different, because the earphone unit is slightly thicker and has a slight uplift on the ear. It may be a little painful to wear for a long time.

Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro using experience

Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro inherits the classic TicPods Free scratch control. Swipe your finger up and down to adjust the volume, double click to cut songs or make a call. In practice. But unfortunately, the two headphones still can't be used separately like the AirPods.

Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro also brings a very interesting head posture control function. When receiving an incoming call while wearing the headset, you can complete the answering operation with a small tap twice. You can reject the call by shaking the head twice. In the actual test, the sensitivity and accuracy of this function is still quite high.

Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro also has voice control function. When using headphones under iOS system, it means "Hi, Xiao Wen" can wake up Siri; when using headphones under Android system, you can wake up any other voice system in your mobile phone.

 

In addition, Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro also provides more scene requirements, it has a built-in six-axis sensor, if you do not have more than 250 steps in an hour, you will be voiced a sedentary reminder, prompting you to get up and running.

Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro sound quality

 Phone Call

The call may be the most obvious part of the Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro sound quality improvement. It is more reminiscent than many headphones. It supports the 8th generation Qualcomm CVC call noise reduction technology and dual microphone noise reduction technology, which is better in sound quality effect.

Bluetooth 5.0 technology is supported for connection stability. There is no disconnection during my short-day experience, but since it uses the design of the primary and secondary headphones, the sound starts from the left ear when the call tone is just sounded. Play, the right ear play will be slightly delayed, but if you don't feel it, you can hardly feel it.

 

 Music playback

Compared with the previous generation, the sound quality of music playback is also improved. This time, Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro supports Apt-X protocol and built-in 13mm dynamic speaker. It offers a larger sound field than the previous generation, and the bass part is more textured. The sound quality feels good, and belongs to the upper-middle level of similar headphones on the market.

 

 Video / Games

There is a slight delay in watching videos or playing games, but wireless headphones actually have delays. Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro is very small and difficult to notice.

Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro battery life

The headset body provides 5 hours of battery life. On the inside of the earphone handle we can see that the Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro has one more charging contact point than the previous generation. Yes, the Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro has a faster charging speed and supports fast charging. The official said that charging for 5 minutes can realize 1 hour of music. Play, with the charging box can achieve 20 hours of battery life, the overall battery life is 2 hours more than the previous generation TicPods Free Pro.

Verdict

Fine design, small size and lightness, richer and more interactive operations, and the same in-ear detection as AirPods. , call, sound quality and battery life have a good performance, and its price is also cheaper than the former.

Unfortunately, this generation still uses the primary and secondary headphones, and in a few cases, there will be delays. But don't hide, if you are interested in a richer interaction, Xiaomi TicPods 2 Pro is definitely your price/performance choice.
