Xiaomi’s AirDots are $29 alternatives to Apple’s $159 AirPods

But at around $29, they're a lot cheaper than Apple's $159 product, which means losing them won't be as painful for your wallet.

In contrast with the exterior design of Apple's AirPods, the AirDots are much subtler and don't extend beyond your ear like the stem of the Apple version does.

Spotted by Engadget, the Chinese smartphone maker's $30 AirDots are completely wireless earbuds, created to compete with the likes of AirPods and Pixel Buds, but at a fraction of the price. First spotted by Engadget the AirDots are apparently exclusive to China at the moment.

For starters, AirDots are equipped with Bluetooth 5.0, which the second-generation of AirPods are expected to have if they're ever released. However, that's the beauty of business.

United States abruptly postpones high-level talks with North Korea
The talks in NY were largely seen as paving the way for a second summit between Trump and Kim Jong Un , who met in Singapore in June.

The headset competes with Apple's AirPods, and even has a similar name: Mi AirDots Youth Edition.

What's more, Xiaomi's product is targeted towards Android, which means that it can potentially sell a lot more of its AirDots, as compared to the AirPods.

A bibliophile and a business enthusiast. Like the rest, the Mi AirDots also come with true wireless stereo (TWS) technology that is responsible for efficiently splitting the audio in both the earbuds. On the outside of the headphones is a sensor, which you can use to control playback and volume, call voice assistant, taking calls and so on. Not all smartphones have the tap-to-wake feature, so this feature in the AirDots Youth Edition might come in handy. Bluetooth 5.0 also allows for clearer calls and faster connection to a smartphone. Moreover, if the earbuds are powered on, keeping them inside the case powers them off automatically. The earbuds themselves can last for 4 hours on a single charge, while the charging case pushes their battery life to a total of 12 hours. It will go on sale in China at CNY 199 from November 11.
