Redmi Buds 5 with 46dB ANC, up to 40h total playback announced

Redmi has launched their new Redmi Buds 5 TWS earbuds in China, alongside the Redmi Note 13 series. These earbuds prioritize comfort, thanks to their ergonomic in-ear design that evenly distributes weight for extended wear.

They boast glossy decorative strips with nano-coating for an enhanced appearance. The charging case features a cloud-like design, a charging indicator, and a strip-shaped breathing light effect lasting three months.

Inside, they house an independent acoustic rear cavity, a precise 1.6m dynamic coil, a robust neodymium magnet, and a sizable 12.4mm dynamic coil with a titanium-plated polymer. These earbuds are also certified by NetEase Cloud Sound for their hardware quality.

The Redmi Buds 5, tuned by Xiaomi’s Golden Ears Team, deliver great audio with EQ effects, vocal enhancement, and treble and bass boosts. They excel in calls with dual microphones and AI noise reduction, even in windy conditions.

These earbuds offer significant 46dB noise reduction, wide 2kHz range, three noise reduction levels, three transparency modes, and dual microphone noise reduction.

For battery life, one earbud lasts 10 hours, and with the case, you get 40 hours. Even with noise reduction, one earbud gives 8 hours, and a full charge is 30 hours. They support fast Type-C charging, giving 2 hours of music in 5 minutes.

Additionally, these earbuds support dual device connectivity, Bluetooth 5.3 Low Energy, touch controls, and can be customized and updated using the Xiaomi Headphones App. Redmi has also introduced a special AAPE trend limited edition of the Redmi Buds 5, featuring a green camouflage gift box and trendy ICON design.
