Talking about the main audio performance of earphones, it’s beyond expectation. I used these earphones on a daily basis while traveling within the city and I must say the quality of sound it delivers is very impressive. Be it low, medium, or high volumes, the earphones’ output was clear and vibrant. The audio output was also well-balanced, and I thoroughly enjoyed my music streaming.

I also used these earphones while playing PUBG Mobile. The sound quality was what I expect from a Rs 1,500 earphones. The sounds of footsteps, gunshots or the conversation with my teammates was loud and very clear. The microphone performs well and is good enough when you are making phone calls or just in-game chats. The passive noise cancellation is fine, but it could have been better.

The Mi Sports Basic is fueled with a 120mAh battery and the company claims that it is capable of delivering 9 hours of battery life when using it on medium volume and 260 hours of standby battery. My usage included a mix of tracks on high and medium sound levels, a few phone calls, and a bit of gaming. It managed to last for about 4 to 5 hours, which is pretty standard for most Bluetooth earphones these days. Also, it is notable that it takes 2 hours to get a full charge with a micro USB cable.

Verdict:
At the time of writing, the headphones are available for Rs 1,499 which makes them a good deal but do keep in mind that you have multiple options available in this price range from brands like Skullcandy, SoundLogic, and Boat. The Xiaomi Mi Sports Bluetooth Earphones Basic offer a decent choice for those who want a Bluetooth earphone to use through the day, from their morning walks to commute and office calls. It comes with a good build, loud and clear music along with a decent battery backup.
