The novelty arrived in firmware version 7.6.2.9. By updating the brand’s headphones, users now have Snapdragon Sound, technology announced in March by Qualcomm. Among the improvements is music playback with sampling from 48kHz to 96kHz. Frequencies range from 16 kHz to 32 kHz in calls.

The headphones also have a lower latency of just 89 milliseconds. The novelty should mainly please the gamer audience, as it reduces the accessory’s response time. During the announcement, Qualcomm explained that the increment guarantees “greater immersion in games and a better video consumption experience”.

The Xiaomi Redmi AirDots 3 Pro went public a few days later. The wireless headset also features noise-canceling, Bluetooth 5.2, long battery life, and wireless charging case, and a USB-C port. The global version of the wearable (Redmi Buds 3 Pro) was announced last week for US$60.
