Xiaomi Company has consistently and frequency stamps and more new gadgets. And the headphones are also among them. Recently I flew to the latest model – Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review. New hot, so without further ado we pass the review.
Some theory: Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review
Why this time the Chinese have called their new headset is is not Piston 4, and Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review? Everything is very simple. The name speaks for itself.
The fact that the body of each channel was possible to fit the whole two radiators instead of one: one regular or, as they say, dynamic, and the second reinforcement. Normally responsible for low and reinforcement for mid and high frequencies. It sounds fantastic, especially when you consider that just reinforcing the headphones even one driver is quite expensive.
For those who do not know the image below with an explanation. The tiny oblong contraption angular shape – it’s just reinforcing the driver and he said, according to the manufacturer reversible. Although there is a doubt. In the scheme below is not visible, set for housing one or two reinforcing emitters. Rather, it is only the use of two types of drivers, instead of some radiator with two anchors.

I will not go into the jungle of technology, simply will express the position that guides manufacturers, developing precisely reinforcing the headphones. This type of radiator provides a perfectly balanced high and mid-range frequencies, without attacks and other crime. Roughly speaking, the sound, in this case, must be such that it should be. Dot. But with the bass may already be a problem. Per them through reinforcing the principle of sound radiation is very difficult. In good, we need a separate anchor for this case, but rather a several. All this money, great engineering and not only the costs – in general, is clearly not the way to Xiaomi. Apparently, for this reason, we decided to “save” and give the lower classes at the mercy of conventional membranes. Well, we’ll see what came of it.
Design: Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review
Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review is trying to focus not only on the design of its products but also the first impression of it, which is composed users at the moment of decompression. Not for nothing on YouTube, there are hundreds or even thousands of channels, the owners of which do not feed bread, but give something to unzip and remove it on video.

Packaging equipment: Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review
Box from the headphone Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review is packed in a transparent matte film, which is labeled some white label with numbers and bar code. Underneath the white box of thin cardboard. Behind the need to tear off a special tab, much likes a box of chocolates.
Inside find two boxes: a dense headset directly inside and simpler with removable ear pads. Suddenly, unexpectedly showed up immediately jamb from the Chinese, or rather, just two.
Included should be three pairs of interchangeable nozzles differing in size of the Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review: XS, S and L. So, L-size was only one, and “S” three. In the photo below, by the way, set the left lip of the Hybrid, and the right of Xiaomi Piston 3.
In addition, one of the nozzles, worn by themselves “ears” was dirty.
Directly from the factory, and in such a form. China No cake, not the cake already!
In general, the manufacturer is evident in the search for and constantly experimenting with packaging. The plastic Piston 3 has a beautiful box with a reel of the cable is very pleasant to the touch rubber. In this case, we have nothing. Only cardboard, but still very good quality. Done carefully and tastefully.

How to check Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review originality?
I do not want anything to address this topic separately, as perhaps this information will be useful to the future to distinguish the original from a fake. Devices «Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review» traditionally very active forge their own countrymen. Rather, the date of publication of this review has appeared fake, so be vigilant.
The only truly reliable way to check the original remote – buy it in the audited areas.
No “tax stamps”, assured the sellers will not help you. Now all this is not working. For example, «Ali» There are several vendors that are guaranteed to sell only original products “Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review”, but they are expensive items: more expensive than in other places. Later, in the relevant section, I’ll tell you where it is cheaper to buy a headset and it does not run into a fake.
When the device Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review is already on hand, check it out just enough originality. First of all, it is necessary to unpack the headphones. Closer to plug you will find a small label with QR-code, which beats online Xiaomi. In the case of successful check on the smartphone screen will appear the following screenshot.
How to distinguish a fake Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review?
In the course of the Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review will continue to compare the headset with the third “pistons”.
In terms of appearance, the main changes affected only the headbands headset. The rest remained in the same design. Plug 3.5 mm is still a straight line only changed color.
The headphone Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review jack is the same
Main cable length (total of 1.25 m) is also in the tissue sheath, and in the place of split wires is the same silicone insulation.
They say there somewhere there is even Kevlar. Personally, I did not notice, but not the essence.
The control unit is housed in a metal frame. It has changed quite a bit. About him, I explain later.
Most of the speaker enclosure is made of metal. Processing of the material quality, the headphones look very dignified and original. There’s no teen shouting design, it seems to me, it looks noble, but at the same time stylish.
Compare Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review and Xiaomi Piston 3
As it turns out even during the operation Piston 3, dark purple paint has the unpleasant property lick. I encountered such a problem, and here’s how it looks.
The updated model is devoid of trouble because it just did not paint.
The main body of the driver has a typical engraved for HD Audio and visual elements anymore, except that the tiny holes to bleed air.
Sound quality: Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review
I must say that this new option is a cut above its predecessor. Surround sound, live more real something. Sounding 3 Piston me at the time and did not like the direct comparison of two generations only strengthened me in this conclusion. The sound of “caps” flat and dry, but, on the whole, satisfactory. No more.
On account of the low frequencies, I can say the following. I do not like filling, deep bass. In this case, it seems to pull the blanket, making it impossible to put the middle and high frequencies. I am for harmony and everyone should know their place. So, in the Piston 3 bass, of course, but they are vague, in fact, like the sound in principle. In our case, it’s much better. Bass thumps, but is on your own without filling all the space location.
The voice is always heard great. Middle present in full. No instrument is not lost – hear everything. I think if you play with the equalizer thoroughly, we can achieve even more.
Still, it cannot be called audiophile headphones. The miracle did not happen this time. On the other hand, no one did not expect.
Headphones Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review
I would put it as follows. Pistons 3 were good for ordinary, not discerning lovers of portable audio. Hybrids also will appreciate the more demanding “listener” to whom I count myself. However, we must understand that the specific sound of headphones, a specific player, a specific content is always unique – every nuance makes its own adjustments, not to mention the personal sound preferences. Incidentally, I tried to be objective.
On account of the audiophile, I cannot say anything because they do not consider me to him. Hardly advanced music fans can opt for these headphones, but to expand the boundaries of consciousness of personal experience, I still would advise trying these “ears”. All the same brand at the hearing, their products too – have to be in the know.
Drivers and Power: Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review
I compared the headset even with the Sony MDR-EX310LP. These “ears” are already more than a year and I like them. Volume, relatively clean, again lives sound. Direct comparison revealed the winner in the face of the Chinese people. Not to say that the quality was different too. Just “Sony” sound like something. However, both models I liked, but “Xiaomi” a little more.
But that’s not all. There is in my arsenal AKG Y20, a review of which came online recently. However, the Chinese “gag” and then walked competitor. Sound Y20 is too soft and clouded stronger than even Sony. I’ve already talked about it in the review AKG Y20 and now again. I thought they sound more or less tolerable, but not outstanding.
But Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review was better than all the other gadgets that were in my personal.
Easy wear: Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review
During normal operation, no nuances I did not notice. But sports headphones do not fit. And I do not think that the case is in the form of my ears. The cable does not interfere, do not pull the headband from the ears, but the blanks themselves are heavy, their weight is not balanced along the length of the body, thereby winding in the head or tilting, they can fall out. Perhaps part of the problem can solve the foam ear pads, but do not think radically.

Due to braided cloth cord does not have a tendency to become tangled. If headphones gently pull up and put in a bag, in exactly the same way they can get it back. Plus, all the accessories of this kind.
Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review as a headset
Control a little altered. Removed bulging spot on the middle button, instead of what made two extended partitions. However, it is more convenient to press blindly from this no more. We need to get used to. However, they have a good response.
With Android headset works perfectly.
The call is received; adjust the volume, pause, put, track forward switches. But there is no previous composition: standard three quick clicks were not working.
Unfortunately, iPhone at hand was not. As an opportunity – Supplement review of the relevant test.

I tried gadget only with the iPod. At this time, the tracks switch to either side, but the volume has fallen off. Pause / start playback operating normally.
Where can I buy Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review?
Before the price. In China, the price of the headphones Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review on the official site of 99 yuan. Translated into domestic currency is about 15 dollars. However, something to buy at the official, especially the Chinese page Xiaomi American man is extremely difficult and it is not even in the language. Need a Chinese bank card and address in China. Nothing that is not? Welcome to the next option.
Verdict: Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review
Xiaomi company last year on everyone’s lips. The popularity is simple: unexpectedly high quality for the entire Chinese brand devices at an affordable price. It sounds like an advertisement, but it is a fact, and many readers will agree with me.
Buy the headphones of all of the above applies to the full. I have not tried the first and second generation of Piston. I can only speak for a third model, which hybrids are easily left behind.
Experience in the use of headphones Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers review
In the price category they are, if not the best, then one of the best – it is exactly. Moreover, the question of choosing between the third “pistons” and our option, in my opinion, it is not necessary at all. If you only choose the right “ears”, it is necessary to wait for delivery Hybrid. If available Piston 3, then discard them and again make a new product. I do not regret, I think, and you will not be disappointed.
