Xiaomi have always been ahead of its time in creating budget high quality accessories and smartphones; their goal seems to be to make high quality products accessible for the masses; products that were only accessible for wealthy consumer in the past.
The legendary Xiaomi Piston V2 earphones was an indication of better things to come. The Piston V2 which I still own and listen too have survived multiple accidents but still sound as good 5 years later as the first day, which is hard to say even for pricy earphones!
A lot of new Chinese brands (or DIY brands) have arrived on the scene now and can be found on Aliexpress or Gearbest at absurdly low prices, most of which have doubtful quality and durability. It is in this value-for-money race that Xiaomi outshines and surpasses its competition.
All Xiaomi products are great value; even their $6 Fresh Edition Pistons sound good and have excellent construction. However, imitations and replicas are a BIG problem for any successful brand including Xiaomi. It started with their popular Piston V2 and continues to be a problem for almost all their products especially earphones; including this one (you can find fake hybrids for $5 on ebay and OLX and some websites for example).
So a word of advice, always buy Xiaomi products from reliable sellers. This way you will have the peace of mind that you have a 100% original product. ToruMart.pk offers the best price in Pakistan with FREE shipping for all orders. You can buy Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro HD Earphones here.
So, Xiaomi has done it again! These earphones are the successor to the excellent Xiaomi Piston Hybrid In-ear Pro Earphones (famously known as the Piston Iron Ring earphones) which were released in 2015 and which first experimented with hybrid drivers.
Xiaomi has now managed to create a triple driver budget IEM that can easily surpass $100 earphones if not more! Two dynamics drivers and one balanced armature driver are exquisitely calibrated to give a bassy & neutral sound signature with lot of micro details to it. Even country or folk lovers will find this Hybrid earphones superb, because acoustic instruments are very detailed.
Quite simply, the Xiaomi Mi Hybrid Pro HD are a budget dream come true, not only due to the fact you can now have a REAL TRIPLE drivers Hybrid for a really low price, but that even at double its price my rating for this earphones would still be the same!

CONSTRUCTION, DESIGN & PACKAGE:
The Xiaomi Mi Hybrid Pro came in a little stylish compact white box that include extra silicon eartips and a little pouch. Simple and elegant as always.
The bass is fast, has good control, detail and punch, but it lacks a little depth / weight. Overall at this price, I shouldn’t be complaining any way, as the bass is quite detailed and accurate.
The midrange is overall very detailed, but I feel like it should use a little more presence as it gave me the impression that the lower midrange is a pushed back a little, while the upper midrange and treble are more present in the scene.
The treble is quite detailed and sparkly, but it shows sibilance. Might be problematic for treble-sensitive people when the highs reach strong peaks.
These headphones are fast, showing fast decay and strong attack in the transient department, leading to a tactile sound signature.
The soundstage is quite decent for closed in ear headphones, but I think it could use a little more width/depth.
Yes, this is a very impressive department for this headphones, as all the frequencies seem to have good details, from bass to treble.
- Very good build quality
- Comfortable and easy to find a good fit
- Very fast, punchy & detailed bass
- Good details on midrange/treble
- Good transients with fast decay and good attack
- Very good price
- Would need a little more midrange presence
- Sharp treble
