Did you know about the release of the new Redmi Buds 4 Lite? Many people have missed the new generation of Xiaomi budget earbuds, although you might be very interested in them.
Our previous article about Redmi Buds 3 Lite is very popular, but we don’t have that earbuds to compare them with the new Redmi Buds 4 Lite.
Let’s do unbox and full review of Xiaomi Redmi Buds 4 Lite.
You know, Redmi Buds 4 Lite have only been released in China, so I have the Chinese version with Chinese inscriptions on the box.
As I already said, the new Redmi Buds 4 Lite have a completely new design. The new generation of wireless earbuds come with a half-in-ear design and a stem.
Overall, Xiaomi Redmi Buds 4 Lite look very good for their price of only $20. However, they look pretty boring in black color, and I would like to try them in orange or green colors.
Now let’s talk about connection and control functions.
The new earbuds also have quick connection with MIUI devices. Unfortunately, I don’t have Xiaomi smartphone right now, so I cannot show you that.
The new Xiaomi earbuds have touch control panels.
When you press them once, nothing happens.
A triple press on any earbud switches to the next track.
The manufacturer says that a long press of the earbuds for 1.5 seconds enables and disables a low latency mode. However, when I press them, there is no sound notification about the activation of gaming mode.
So, I am wondering if there is a game mode. Let’s check it out.
I want to play PUBG Mobile a little, because it is the best game for testing a latency.
You know, I pressed the touch panels several times, and held them down, but there is no game mode. Unfortunately, Redmi Buds 4 Lite are bad for gaming.
However, you can use Redmi Buds 4 Lite for phone calls. The new earbuds have noise call reduction, and we need to check it.
What’s up, guys! I am testing a microphone of Redmi Buds 4 Lite. One, two, three, one, two, three. Now, I want to play a video with street noise on my TV to test the noise reduction.
Hey, guys! Can you hear me? One, two, three, one, two, three.
Talking about sound quality of Redmi Buds 4 Lite, first, you need to know that they have 12mm driver. For comparison, the previous model Redmi Buds 3 Lite has only 6mm driver.
The vocal is also good, but the instrumental music is not very impressive.
Overall, for the price of $20, the sound quality of Redmi Buds 4 Lite is decent.
Now let’s talk about the battery of the new Xiaomi budget earbuds.
The charging case has a battery capacity of 350mAh, while a single earbud is equipped with 50mAh battery.
On a single use, the earbuds have up to 5 hours of playtime, depending on volume.
It is not very much, but not bad for budget earbuds.
So, the new Redmi Buds 4 Lite have many improvements over the previous generation. Now, they have the latest Bluetooth 5.3 version, 12mm dynamic driver with much better bass, and a little longer battery life up to 20 hours.
The new earbuds also have a new half-in-ear design. Because of the stem, I think the microphone quality is better.
By the way, do you think the black color looks boring? I would rather choose these earbuds in orange or green colors.
