Mi VR Play 2, Mi Noise Cancelling Type C Earphones & 10000mAh Mi Power Bank Pro Launched In India

As soon as its massive Diwali came to an end, the Chinese electronics manufacturer has something new to offer its Indian customers. Yesterday, Xiaomi launched three new products and put them up for sale on its official website. The three products in question are the Mi VR Play 2, the Mi Noise Cancelling Type C earphones and the Mi Power Bank Pro in 10000mAh capacity. The three products are currently available for purchase on the Mi India website and the product links are at the bottom.

Mi VR Play 2

The first product in question is the Mi VR Play 2. As you might have already guessed the Mi VR Play 2 is the second iteration of the Mi VR Play virtual reality headset which we reviewed earlier this year. The Mi VR Play 2 is more expensive than the previous variant which retailed at Rs. 999 and was recently sold during the Diwali sale for Rs. 599. The Mi VR Play 2 costs Rs. 1299 which is the best buy price against its retail price of Rs. 1499. So what do you get for the extra three hundred rupees? For starters the Mi VR Play 2 is eerily similar to Google’s Daydream VR headset but costs a fraction of the latter. The Mi VR Play 2 does come with a head strap which was missing from the Indian variant that was launched last year. The Mi VR Play 2 has a front load design for the smartphone which works without any zips. Next it has been built out of soft breathable fabric and has face pad cushioning on its edges for comfort. The Mi VR Play 2 is a big improvement over its predecessor and worth the extra cash.

Mi Noise Cancelling Earphones Type C

Next on the list of launches is the Mi Noise Cancelling Earphones Type C. These earphones could probably be the cheapest noise cancelling earphones being sold in India since it comes with an attractive price tag of Rs. 2,999 which is much cheaper than anything in the market. The Mi Noise Cancelling Earphones Type C just like the big brands like Bose where microphones on each side pick up the ambient noise and cancel them out by playing opposing frequencies. This means you can enjoy the bliss of music without the ambient noise. One of the advantages of the Mi Noise Cancelling Earphones Type C is that they do not require additional power since they run off the power from the USB Type C port on your phone. You also get an inline microphone for making calls and an inline remote for controlling music and volume. Sadly there is a small problem with the Mi Noise Cancelling Earphones Type C, since they require Type C port you can only use them on the Mi 5 and the Mi Mix 2. We have a question for Xiaomi if they work off the USB Type C port why would they not work on the Mi A1 smartphone?

Mi Power Bank Pro Black Mi Power Bank Pro Pink

Finally on the list we have the 10000mAh Mi Power Bank Pro. The 10000mAh Mi Power Bank Pro costs Rs. 1599 and is a lot more expensive than the Mi Power Bank 2 of the same capacity which retails for Rs. 1199. So if you decide to spend an additional four hundred rupees why should you go for the new one? Well, the first feature holds the clue for it. You see the 10000mAh Mi Power Bank Pro comes bundled with the new Mi 2-in-1 USB cable which means you can charge both microUSB and Type C port smartphones. The 10000mAh Mi Power Bank Pro is slimmer than the Mi Power Bank 2 of the same capacity and it supports 10W fast charging both ways which means you can not only charge a fast charging certified smartphone but also the power bank itself more faster than ever. The 10000mAh Mi Power Bank Pro however only has one output which is a bit disappointing. The 10000mAh Mi Power Bank Pro is available in Black and Pink colour variants.

The current VR is mostly useless with all the phones with Full HD or less resolution. The screen we see in VR is too much pixelated and hurt eyes in a few min because of brightness. There should be option to make screen smaller.

I agree @Anoop Kumar . I use the Mi VR headset with a Redmi 4A currently and watching videos for a long time is excruciating because of pixelation. Phones like Pixel with Daydream VR have tried to correct this problem but we still aren't sure how effective they are.
