Today I am going to talk about a product from Xiaomi that might blow your mind. What I mean by that is, that this product’s price does not match its quality, it’s THAT good. It is called Xiaomi Hybrid(also known as piston v4 and Hybrid Pro) and they are in-ear style headphones. They cost around $17-20$ and they sound nothing like cheap headphones.
Xiaomi, a company you probably would have heard about. They are the ones who launched a beautiful bezel-less smartphone in 2016 called the Xiaomi Mi Mix, and this smartphone laid the foundation for the 2017 bezel-less smartphone frenzy. But apart from the smartphones, Xiaomi also makes smartphones accessories like Bluetooth speakers, headphones and battery power banks.
I got these Xiaomi Hybrid headphones from AliExpress after a friend of mine recommended them to me, and after trying them out for about a week, I am really impressed with these. Usually, when you hear about a cheap Chinese product you think about low quality and cheap materials, but trust me these headphones use premium materials you would find on high-end headphones. Now, talking about the specs, we’ve got 20~40000 Hz frequency, 98 dB sensitivity, all-metal build and 1.25 m cable. These specs might not sound so promising but these headphones do not sound like any cheap headphones. These headphones also come with a braided sleeving and Military-grade fiber cable, the earpiece is also made of metal with silicon earbuds so the cold metal doesn’t come in contact with your ears. Overall Xiaomi Hybrids are very durable and comfortable at the same time, you can often forget that you’re even wearing them.
The common control buttons are also present.
Now I say all this not because Xiaomi sponsored me or anything, but I have experienced these headphones myself, after a week of heavy use, listening to music and watching movies, I will have to agree with hundreds of positive reviews on AliExpress page of these headphones that these are one of the best ones you can buy without breaking the bank. In my use Hybrids are much better than the Hybrid Pro HDs both in sound quality and price tags, the Hybrid Pro HDs doesn’t come with the braided cable too.
