One of my pet peeves in listening to music is having those earphone wires tangled on. When you’re commuting and always “on the go”, you want something that is comfortable like wearing those Bluetooth earphones (for one).|

Photo grabbed from internet, showing this as a sample of tangled earphones connected to a phone.
What if you already have your favorite earphone and still want to have that untangled problem on wires?Xiaomi’s Bluetooth Audio Receiver is a great solution for this.

Now I’ve already owned a Piston Pro HD so instead of buying another earphone (Bluetooth), I had given this Xiaomi’s Bluetooth Audio Receiver a try. This is much cheaper than (buying separately) another Bluetooth earphones, and one big advantage of this is you can use different earphones, headphones on this, that nice right?
It has a Bluetooth 4.2 and a built-in 97 MAH Li-ion battery that can lasts up to 4 to 5 hours of playing time (as for my experience as well).

My Piston Pro HD along with my Mi Bluetooth Audio Receiver
It is easy to use it despite the manual that comes with it is in Chinese language. Just pair it like any other Bluetooth earphones and headphones on it. As I have read online (based on some reviews) it is made of a solid polycarbonate plastic and it has a metal clip. You can also notice the MI logo on the side of the metal clip.

Press the multi-function button for about 3 seconds and you can hear it will say Power ON, then the status of the battery of the unit (either Battery Medium, or Battery Low) the color of the LED changes from RED to BLUE which means it is searching or pairing. And it is portable as it only weighs approximately 10grams ( /-).

You can also see that it has a LED light indicator and one multi-function button (ON and OFF function).
At the top of it is a 3.5mm audio port while on the bottom is a micro USB port for charging. What I noticed is, it has an excellent range. By experience I can still hear it within 6 to 7 meters from my phone on which it is connected, without sacrificing the sound/ music quality. I find it impressive considering its price.

The 3.5mm audio port to where your earphone or headphone is connected.
This does not have a built-in volume control and microphone. But you can still control the volume on your phone or earphone if your earphone has it. Same applies to the microphone if an incoming call comes in, the control of the volume will be on your phone or earphone.

The sound quality is also good for a Bluetooth receiver. It also has a great battery life managing a maximum 5 hours and 20 minutes on my personal experience. What’s good about it, there is a voice prompt once the receiver goes low in battery, it will remind you (there’s an interval, apologies I forgot how many minutes) up until it totally turned off. When charging it usually takes about 1 to 1 ½ hours to get to fully charge.

White is the only color for this one :)
Will I recommend this? Yes, As it serves its main purpose, to provide good quality (wireless) audio with incredible battery life a great deal for its price!
It is about Php799.00 at our Mi Official Stores (Trinoma, Megamall and SM North Edsa)
NOTE: For those audiophiles (is a person who is enthusiastic about high-fidelity sound reproduction) I DO NOT recommend this because you could be disappointed, as this does not support a feature called APTX Bluetooth (aptX™ audio enhances the wireless sound quality of many of the world's finest smartphones, speakers, soundbars, headphones and tablets. With aptX, music lovers can enjoy wired quality sound).
BUT, let’s just wait and see if somehow, Xiaomi will create another version of this Bluetooth receiver with that great feature. ;)
Thanks for dropping by! Happy Ears everyone :D
