XiaomiAirDots are an affordable Apple AirPods alternative priced at around $29

Chinese online retailers offer a new product for $ 29.

Wireless devices were the most needful accessory among users after the Apple AirPods. First spotted by Engadget the AirDots are apparently exclusive to China at the moment. They have been dubbed the "AirDots", which, I don't really need to tell you, sounds dangerously close to a certain Apple product. However, that's the beauty of business.

The AirPods are, without a doubt, one of the best products Apple launched in the last couple of years. However, the Xiaomi Mi AirDots Youth Edition earphones have a touch zone that lets you work with a voice assistant, play or pause music, or simply attend or reject a voice call with a touch.

A bibliophile and a business enthusiast. Unfortunately, no news yet of global availability but Xiaomi does have some events scheduled this week so that may still happen. They are in-ear type, and connect to each other as well as the mobile device using Bluetooth 5.0. These new AirPods come with model numbers A2031 and A2032 which could correspond to the left and right AirPod with the models having already completed the Bluetooth Qualification process. Bluetooth 5.0 also allows for clearer calls and faster connection to a smartphone.

Placing the AirDots inside the case automatically starts the charging process.

What's clear on the other hand is the fact that the tech for wireless earbuds will continue developing to the point in which they become a part of the box in which phones come pretty soon. It will go on sale in China at CNY 199 from November 11.

The Mi AirDots Youth Edition can deliver up to four hours of playback time in stereo mode and up to five hours of playback time in mono mode on a single charge, if what Xiaomi claims is to be believed.
