Along with the Xiaomi Redmi 10 Prime, the Chinese firm has presented in India its new generation of headphones, the Redmi Earbuds 3 Pro. Important not to confuse them with the Xiaomi Redmi Buds 3 Pro, because the first are “Earbuds” and the second “Buds”. They are similar, but not the same.
The Xiaomi Redmi Earbuds 3 Pro are somewhat simpler earbuds than the Buds 3 Pro. However, it has a Qualcomm chip and support for aptX Adaptive, IPX4 resistance, and a battery that promises more than enough autonomy. Its price? About $80 at the exchange rate.

Lightweight and waterproof
The Xiaomi Redmi Earbuds 3 Pro are compact and fairly lightweight headphones. Each one weighs 4.6 grams, which is not bad at all, and the case weighs 51 grams, so a priori it should not be an excessive burden when carrying it in your pocket. They will be available in blue, white and pink.
The headphones incorporate the Qualcomm QCC3040 chip, Bluetooth 5.2, and Qualcomm aptX Adaptive technology. This dynamically adjusts the bitrate, which can go from 280 Kbps to 420 Kbps, to offer better audio quality. They also have a dual-driver to improve bass and treble reproduction.
Xiaomi claims that their headphones have a latency of 86 milliseconds, so in theory, they can behave in gaming sessions, although ultimately it will depend on the device we use. In that sense, it is worth noting that they are compatible with iOS and Android.
Finally, and in terms of battery, the Redmi Earbuds 3 Pro has 43 mAh and can offer up to seven hours of music, according to Xiaomi. If we take into account the battery of the case (600 mAh), Xiaomi claims that we can aspire to get up to 30 hours.
